Weekend success.

Can I just say that I loooooove weekends?  They've always been precious to us since I worked nights and weekends and our time as a family was already limited.  But now?  They're so.insanely.important.  They are days that Brian and I can accomplish things as a team and time that we can focus on the 5 of us.  I love it.  And long weekends?  I die.  They're amazing and beautiful and spectacular and seem to fall perfectly into times when I'm starting to lose it and am in need of my hubby's presence for an extra day.  (Yay God.)

So we had a pretty productive weekend.  Some things didn't get accomplished and some things were added in.  And while I planned I totally forgot that Brian had Monday off, so that was a big fat bonus.  All in all?  Fantastic weekend.  Here's the breakdown:

  • Finish boys laundry and diaper laundry
  • Sort the rest of the laundry
  • Organize coupons
  • Menu plan 
  • K - finish Brian's Vday gift (he knew it would be late)  (moved from Saturday)
  • Laundry
  • K - coffee with a friend
  • Run errands as a family  (added)
  • Clean out babies' dresser (added)
  • Laundry
  • Clean and organize laundry room
  • Steam mop floors
  • Family walk to yogurt shop (this might not happen depending on weather!)
  • Play frisbee golf as a family (added)
  • B - mow lawn and edge (moved from Saturday)
  • B - fix screens (added)
  • B - fix under-cabinet lights (added)
  • K - sort through baby clothes (added)
So there you have it.  I still need to steam mop the floors, organize my coupons, and menu plan.  But it felt like a very productive weekend.  We're getting better at balancing life and babies as they get older.  It feels good to function semi-smoothly.  Emphasis on the semi.
