Happy Monday!

Well, where to begin? I had a very uneventful weekend, albeit painful.

At our house, the weekend really starts on Friday morning. My husband has the day off, so at least for now, we keep our four year old home for "Family Day". This particular day we actually DID something as a family! No phone calls were made (by either of us!) and we took the kids to the South Florida version of a pumpkin patch. For those of you fortunate enough to live where they haven't built over every piece of land, here in Oz, we have parking lots full of pumpkins with a few bales of hay scattered around to give you that warm, autumnal feeling. Actually, the two we go to, are held at local churches and they do a good job, considering.

So, we bought some pumpkins, some funky looking gourds and proceeded to ACE Educational Stores to buy PAINT! As my hubcaps fell asleep on the couch, the kids and I proceeded to paint the ugliest pumpkins you've ever seen. I'd post pictures, but quite honestly, not worth the space!

Did I mention that I had a migraine that lasted for THREE days? It finally went away on Sunday morning, but I lived with it from Friday morning until then. Terrible.

The BEST part of my weekend?? Yesterday afternoon from about 4-6pm. I went to a brand new Target that just opened - ALONE. I wandered each and every aisle, looking at things I don't need, can't afford, and don't have room for. It was pure heaven. Moms everywhere know what I'm talking about. I could spend two hours in a CVS - just roaming around - looking at lipstick, nail polish, butt cream, toothbrushes, magazines, vitamins, diet pills, etc. To me, there is no greater stress reliever than just wandering around with no shopping list or to do list. I love drug stores, especially because I always walk away with something really cool, whether I needed it or not. Last time it was a Burt's Beeswax lip gloss.

Anyways, it's now Monday morning. My son was late for school. My husband was late for a doctor's appointment and work. My daughter and I have already painted her toes and fingernails!! The laundry is caught up. What am I to do with myself?? Hmmmmm.... Just kidding, there's tons to do, but I think I might take it easy today.

Have a wonderful Monday.

I LOVE TARGET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did I mention how much I love me time too? :) I always thought I was weird for enjoying CVS, Walgreens, and Target...heck, even publix has some therapeutic qualities. I feel better now! Last night I did get a quick couple of coats of polish on my nails and a shower. That was the extent of the rest of Jen time.

Ooh! I understand about the headaches. I can't remember a day since I was about nine that I haven't at least had a dull headache. I don't know what it is like not to have a headache. I have had some doozies lately though. Have a good rest today. You probably need it after a weekend long migraine.

A few weeks ago I went to grab some things on a Saturday night at about 10:30 alone and left the kids with Jon. I ran into a friend at the store and we chit chatted in the isles while annoyed people walked around us and rolled their eyes. It was great! Until I realized I didn't have my phone and it was after 1 am by the time I rolled into the drive way! Woops. Guess I took the me time a little too far! :)
