This weekend was a bust. There is much to do as we prepare for a major downsizing of the amount of "stuff" in our house, but we did absolutely nothing all weekend. Other than attending the church service on Saturday evening, we had nowhere to go, and we were, essentially, shut-ins.
This isn't necessarily unusual for us. We're a week into Daylight Saving Time, and my daughter and I both hate it. We've felt exhausted all week, and no matter how early we went to bed, we still struggled to get up each morning. I think there's a problem with the fact that Standard Time is shorter than Daylight Saving Time. I'm all in favor of getting rid of it.
So we spent the weekend taking it easy. With the job stress that came to a head this past week, and Melody completing four different projects for four different classes, we both felt like this weekend was a good one for vegging out.
Faithful Pup Scout had different plans, unfortunately. Regardless of what the clock says, Scout's internal alarm never seems to change. She will not sleep past 7am, and even when I took her out at 7 this morning and we went right back to bed, she woke me up again just as I fell asleep again. At 7:20. For more than a year now, I have only slept past 7am when my daughter and I have been away on vacations and Scout is with my parents. Otherwise, it doesn't matter what time Scout and I go to bed the night before. We're up at 7. At least it isn't my 4:30am normal weekday wake up call.
There was one other thing we did this weekend. Every Saturday, after church, we always go out for dinner. Last night, we went to one of our favorites: Steelfire, in Maple Lawn. I love this place! It was St. Patrick's Day, so everything was green, including the water, beer, and shakes, and while we don't drink beer, we still enjoyed the luck o' the Irish. The restaurant's staff was clearly having a fun evening, and it was contagious. If you go, make sure you try the Taylor Tots.
Have a great evening, everyone!
