This weekend has been absolutely crazy. Thankfully, this is the last weekend I will spend alone as I am headed home to Kentucky this week. I cannot believe that this hellacious month is finally coming to an end. This was definitely one of those months where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, but its all blue skies from here on out. Looking back on the past year, I cannot believe that Chase has been gone for a quarter of 2011. It has been stinking hard to live without my best friend, but I do feel like quite the independent woman.
Cue “Independent Women” by Destiny’s Child.
Is that an ear worm for anyone else? The second I hear three notes of that song it is in my head the whole entire day.
I am going to apologize in advance for the incredibly tangential nature of this post. I got approximately 3 hours of sleep last night so I am a bit of a space cadet today. Here are some of the highlights of my weekend:
Yesterday I meandered into Target, my home away from home. Whenever I am at Target I always check the clothing section for the clearance rack. I have been able to find some real gems for less than $10. Well, I totally hit paydirt. After seeing the endless ways that Colleen wears and wardrobes leggings, I have been trying to embrace the trend. I have not been incredibly successful at this, until now. I finally found a long-ish shirt that perfectly works with a leggings look.
(Taking a self-portrait is really rather tricky!)
The whole reason for my Target trip was to get supplies to make a Thanksgiving Turkeys with two little girls I babysat for last night. I kind of go crazy for crafting when I hang out with older kids since I am so accustomed to babies.
Now, when I say we made Turkeys, I am not talking about this kind of bird:
I am talking about THIS:
(This would be my turkey, Mr. Fred)
(Above is Mr. Gobble, the creation of the 7 year-old)
And this would be Mr. Turkey, the little 4-year-old’s masterpiece.
The girls LOVED it. We also traced our hands and colored Turkey signs in addition to making a paper chain countdown to Christmas.
We had a very busy night. 🙂
While yesterday was all fun and games, today has been torture. I am SUCH a crabby person with no sleep. Plus, I have been grading papers since 4:15 AM, so basically I am a giant grouch with a cherry on top.
My “fun breaks” from grading are going to be packing, and laundry. Try not to be too jealous, okay?!
What was the BEST part of your weekend and what was the WORST part?
