Weekend Update

This weekend has left me bushed! First of all, I have been single-parenting it because DH is at a seminar......sooooooI have been left with all household and parenting responsiblities!

Friday night my MIL(Bless her!) came and took me and the little boys out to dinner. We ate at Friday's. It was Trenton's pick, because afterall it was Friday.LOL. Then she said she would watch them at home while I did my grocery shopping, so I accepted in a flash and leisurely wandered around WalMart for the next hour or so.

Saturday, we did sleep in a little(if 8:00am counts as sleeping in!!!) Then Devin had a ball game at 3:00-4:30 then Trenton's game started at 6:00. we barely had time to come home, hog something down, then turn around and back to the ball park. it was absolutely beautiful weather, so I can't complain.

Sunday, I made good 'ole Bisquick waffles for breakfast, then laundry, housecleaning, quick trip to Target to pick up a gift bag, lunch. Devin had a b-day party at 2:30. Luckily, a nice mom offered him a ride because Trenton had ball practice at the same time. Austen started on the lawn while we were gone, then Taylor and I cleaned up the shed and rearranged all the bikes and toys, so eveything is neat and tidy. Dinner followed, then a quick visit to the batting cages, so they won't forget what they practiced and now we're home, sweet home. The guys are playing Wii, Taylor is being a pouty 16 year-old up in her bedroom, Austen is at the driving range hitting golfballs with a buddy.

Yawn......bath and bed... sounds good!

I have worked more on the KSU afghan, but won't bore you with a pic tonite. Then won't you be shocked when you finally see how much I've gotten done. When I need a break from taking out the big 'ghan I worked on this Sleepy Sarah ami. Thanks Owlishly for such a cute pattern!

Hi Caroline! I like that "Sleepy Sarah" ami. I will have to try to make her sometime soon!! I am stopping by to let you know you have an award that awaits you there! I don't know how you feel about blog awards, but please know I mean it first and foremost as a compliment to you and your work.

Isn't that Sleeping Sarah pattern adorable? Sounds like your weekend was busy.

I want to thank you so so so much for the two amis for the toy drive. They arrived today and your kindness brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for thinking of and helping me during this stressful time. Big hugs and love to you!

You're amazing, Caroline . . . es la verdad! I was by myself last week while my husband and daughter vacationed at Seaworld, and I didn't get nearly as much accomplished as I wanted to. I needed you here to get me motivated! :) How in the world do you do it all? Oh, and I absolutely can't wait to see the finished KSU afghan. I guess you're going to guilt me into making one for my daughter, the KSU fanatic!
