Weekend Wrap-Up

My internet connection was down most of the weekend (don't know why, and didn't feel like spending 2 hours on the phone w/ customer service to try and figure it out), so I'm way behind on reading and such.

It's been a busy week (don't I always say that?). Riley had soccer games on Monday and Tues. They got beat bad at Monday's game. My parents also came so we went to dinner with them after the slaughter (which Riley took in stride).

Tuesday, Riley's team did not have enough players so all the 2nd and 3rd graders played against the 3 coaches (2 jr. high and 1 high school student). I have to say, that's been my favorite game so far. The kids were buzzing with excitement, scored a lot of goals (as did the "big kids") and I don't even remember the final score, but Riley said their team won.

Tuesday was also the PTA meeting. I learned a lot about the state of our education system. I attended the school Board meeting on Thurs. and I've written about it both at LA Moms and Examiner, so take your pick.

Saturday was my L'Bri party. It was both a success and a failure. A success because we sold more this time than the last time, but a very low turn-out. Oh, well. Those of us that were there had a great time.

After the party, my parents took Riley for the night, and Sylvia and I had a mother-daughter night. We went shopping for the new clothes that Sylvia needed (lots of items on sale right now - yay!), then went home, baked cookies, and watched a stupid (but fun!) movie.

Sunday was a quiet day at home where I didn't do nearly as much housework as I should have.

Lately, I've been obsessing about all the things that I'm not doing that I should be. I've had a couple of mini-breakdowns about it, but I'm still not kicking myself into actually doing it yet.

I'm having those moments myself. I was talking to my aunt and mentioning how I have been too tired and it has been too hot for me to take J out. I am overthinking again and I don't like it. Glad to hear you had a decent weekend besides the Internet connection anyway.

I am adamantly refusing to stress about it. Yes, I'm letting the housework slide a lot right now. Yes, I'm spending too much time on the computer. No, I'm not doing homework with Andy or playing games with the kids. (We are spending a lot of time outdoors with the nice weather; I don't mean I've planted them in front of the TV.) I just can't take on any more stress right now.

I can SOOOOO relate to the whole thing with not calling because it just isn't worth it. And as for Verizon, they seriously need to get rid of that horrible voice-activated thing. It's IMPOSSIBLE to get through when you have two toddlers around all the time. Someone is bound to drop something, yell, cry "Mommy!" or whatever. Then you get the whole, "I'm sorry, I didn't understand what you said......." etc. I hate that. I refuse to call them for anything.

Housework is overrated!

Your daughter/mom night sounded great. Click flicks and cookies, doesn't get much better.

I've been obsessing about the housework that I haven't done also. But, like you, that isn't enough to make me get off my butt and do it. It will happen eventually.

I hear you about the motivation thing. I've been lacking it for some time now I think due to being so inundated with crap. I am trying to get back into a ruitine this week. So far that has included exercising the last two days in a row. I've been told by my therapist to focus on taking care of me and the rest will follow.

But you're doing the right things, like spending quality time with your girl. The other stuff can wait.

And that was a stupid movie, but the dancing was pretty good :)

Hi April, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting.

Sounds like a fun filled weekend.

I know after a busy week the last thing I want to do is housework and sometimes it gets neglected when I'm feeling overwhelmed. I always say eh' it will still be there waiting later its not like its going anywhere. Just relax you deserve it. That's what I tell myself anyway.
