Long Weekend over...

It's the last night of our long President's weekend. I am sitting here watching the boys finish up the Monopoly game and thinking about the progress..they are playing my piece and just sent me to jail. This cold I have had all weekend is winning right now so I am content sitting here watching for the next few turns.
We did a lot over the last few days.. Friday night we went to see the Amish Outlaws at the Parx Casino...a few firsts for me. Dinner at Chickie and Pete's.. Very good and my first first.. Then I put $5 in a slot machine and won $50..not too exciting for those of you that play often, but for me it was cool, and my second "first". Time out with good friends is always a welcome distraction from the rest of the stuff we have to do.

Laura & I at the Parx Casino for the Amish Outlaws!

Saturday we made a good start in our storage area in the basement.. Lots of things to leave the house..now to make sure they go before we re-integrate them back in to the mess! Sunday I came down with a bad cold so forward motion slowed a little.. Tom & the boys worked more on the basement...and I did a lot of sleeping. I was hoping it would make for a better Monday but I was still a little slow on Monday..but taking the small steps forward! We purged the kids rooms of their outgrown clothes..found a ton of dirty laundry to do and some other "missing" items...belts..basketball shirts..boy scout items..so all in all a good day. Tuesday we started out Visiting with Patrick's teacher..."he is very respectful... If only he could sit still...". Tell me about it! Then I paid bills...William worked on his Greek pottery project...and Patrick cleaned out under his bed. When we were done we spent the rest of the time playing a rousing game of monopoly..

It was a really nice weekend...I really enjoy spending time with my boys, even if it is doing things around the house. We ended the weekend with shamrock shakes...always good for a cold! And a favorite of William & Patrick! Thanks daddy for picking them up!

I will be doing laundry all day today..and trying to kick the rest of this cold..after all it is almost the weekend again!
