There was initially some uncertainty to whether Brian would be home over the weekend or not. Unfortunately, uncertainty is just part of the job when you are in the Army. Plans, events, and life can change on a dime. And the planner in me just cringes and tries to go along for the ride. But we were so happy to have Papa home with us over the weekend, especially since he had mostly gotten home after bedtimes during the week.
We took advantage of having Papa around. We lounged in pajamas a bit longer. We waited around the kitchen table for a big stack of his famous pancakes. I drank Brian's french press coffee, and we all woke up in our own time.
We went to the farmer's market and got lots of good stuff to eat. The littles love all the taste tests that are offered to them.
But perhaps one of the best parts of the weekend was an hour and a half drive to the nearest city. All by myself! Both ways! I did some fall shopping for the littles, bought tons of new shoes for their growing feet, and reveled in walking up and down every aisle in Target. Yes, every aisle. It took a while. I visited a couple other stores, and then sat in Barnes and Nobles with a coffee and flipped through magazines. It was heaven.
And then yesterday I got a couple of projects finished, made a new recipe, and felt like I accomplished something, finally! It was a perfect weekend! What does your perfect weekend look like?
