A Weekend Of … Nothing


JD told me I’m not fun and did nothing for him this weekend. Blah-Blah-Blah.

This is because our weekend was admittedly low-key and I don’t care. I.DON’T.CARE.

My kid is used to doing fun things all the time: Hawaii, Parks, Ice skating, Bowling-Museum-Snow Play, Kid bday parties … we practiced sight words and read books this weekend, haha.

This weekend was drippy, damp, chilly, misty and gloomy. I had no energy to excel at … anything. I sought solace. I sound like a bad mom. Good.

For the record, my iCal is currently filled with JD kid parties for the next 5 weeks. Yeah.

Truth: It’s  5:23 PM on Sunday and I just want to eat spaghetti and meatballs, get my kid to sleep and watch the Golden Globes, Girls and Enlightened. I want peace.

Here’s a look at our totally boring weekend. Whatever, child. I tried. Mom was burned out.

    We took our time (hehe) removing the ornaments and wrapping them up. (Awesome time killer!) Uncle Bri came over to help us remove it.

    JD had his standard karate class on Saturday morning and got to bring a friend. This was fun and special, I thought. I THOUGHT! Sheesh.

    JD and I are Roman Catholic. We attend mass most Sunday mornings. Here, JD with bite-size parishioners singing on the stage. Ahhh.

    I gave JD a paint-by-#s project I'd been hoarding from a goody bag for a rainy day. He didn't paint by #s. Us artists break rules. Atta boy!!

    I turned off the lights. Drew the blinds and curtains. Made popcorn and set out a bowl of M&Ms. We watched The Mighty Ducks! We both loved it. Photo Credit: IMDb
