Spring break is effectively over. One more day of rest tomorrow and then it’s back to the grind. I really needed this week… There was so much that had been left on the wayside since I started working. Things that I usually was able to take care of while the kids were in school. And of course, sleeping later than the ungodly hour of 6 AM was a very nice bonus.
Monday, I took the car in for an oil change and while we waited for the car to get taken care of, the girls and I walked around looking at some of the shops in the area and then had a nice lunch at Subway.
After lunch I took the kids to Gamestop to pick out some new games for the PS4. Little One wanted a game that she could play and the boy really, really, really had to have that new game that everyone is talking about. And since the weather was perfect for an afternoon of relaxing on the couch and playing videogames, I made their day!
What did I get out of the deal? This…
Peace! Peace and quiet, for more than 5 minutes and three siblings that didn’t snipe at each other. A mother’s version of heaven!
Tuesday we had the unpleasant task of having to get our bi-yearly dental check-up and cleaning, which took quite some time, like the whole afternoon, because they took care of all 4 of us. We all walked out with clean, shiny teeth and only one tiny cavity for little one. I was pretty happy to be done with it for another 6 month. I also got the excellent news that I can get Invisalign without having to have all 4 of my very impacted wisdom teeth removed.
For the sake of keeping this post a decent length, I’ll put the rest of the snapshots in a collage. If you want to know details, click on any image for a slideshow with captions!
And what does Veronica Mars have to do with all this? After all the dusting, cleaning, steam cleaning of carpets, gardening and gazillion other chores, I needed something to relax with. As so often happens these days, hubby decided to check out a new to us show on Amazon Prime – Veronica Mars. We never watched the show when it was on regular TV but after one episode, okay, maybe two, middle daughter and I got hooked and started binge watching the show, staying up way too late each night… It’s on in the background as I write this. We are almost through season 2 and once we are done with season 3 we’ll watch the new Veronica Mars movie, which just happened to come out on DVD this past week.
So there you have it. We spent Spring Break, spring cleaning, crafting, gardening and watching Veronica Mars! So while we didn’t do anything exciting, we did things that needed to be done!
Hope you all have a great week!
