I live for the weekends. Every week my wife and I are on the go from the time we wake up to the time we finally hit the hay. There usually is no down time during the week. The highlight of our conversations is usually about what to make for dinner and I am sorry that is just not a conversation I want to have at 7 am. By the time Friday comes I am an over worked zombie and need a nap. I think a lot of parents who work full time feel this way.
When Saturdays come I am very much excited as I am not going to be awaken by the harsh sound of my alarm clock but to the tapping on my head by my oldest who wants to go downstairs and watch TV. To be 100% honest here, nine times out of ten I tell her to wake her mom up. I know I am a horrible human being.
This weekend I got up and went to the gym first thing. It was leg day and I wanted to go ahead and get it in first thing. After pounding out some deadlifts and other exercises, I went and got some coffee cause no workout should go not unrewarded.
We decided to take the kids to the park and let then run all their energy out. This was a great idea considering we ended up having a solid 30 minutes of the park to ourselves. I ended up being the master of the kids zip line. The park stated to fill up but we stayed and played. I swung with Evie and Wife slid down the slide with K-Dub.
The kids were tired so we headed home for a quick nap before going to lunch. Not just any lunch. It was a lunch to celebrate by SIL who turned 25! Lunch was at the best Mexican restaurant that is local her in Indian Trail. It real is life changing Mexican food. The kids were disaster between Evie putting her hands in salsa and then rubbing Wife’s shirt and K-Dub having to go to the bathroom, I was done and ready to take the demons home but we had to go to Target first.
We have been working on this Coffee bar project for sometime and we finally found the right model we wanted to get. So I spent the next couple of hours after Target building it and I am so glad it is done.
We still have a couple of things to do but in the end I think we are off to a great start to a new favorite spot for Wife and I at our house. We survive on coffee and the more the better.
Sunday night I had been waiting for my cheat meal. All week in fact and I wanted a burger, fries and a milkshake and I finally got it. My wife treated me to American Burger Co. in Sun Valley. I have to say it was worth it. My burger was called “Hot Mess” which is what I was as I devoured that thing. So worth it.
Now we are back in the grind of work and here we are on Wednesday. lucky for us we only have one more day of work as we are off for a four day weekend!!! Yay!
