Sleepy, yes! Motivated - NO! This morning's sendoff of my husband's granddaughter and her parents was a down and up situation! I spent the weekend, cooking, ushering, chatting, and being as hospitable as a working woman can be with a 3-day weekend. These 3-day extravaganza's are few and far between and I usually unwind and relax.
Friday night - "they're coming, they'll be here about 9", he says! And, change of plans, they decided to leave on Saturday morning. Saturday "you HAVE to have a hair appt now, when you know you're getting company?". There was no indicator, no timing of a Saturday arrival so I suppose I was to sit and wait, but that's just not me.
Saturday afternoon - "they're here!". Yes, the three year old adorable princess and her parents. Cookout, visiting, cleaning... you know the drill!
Sunday, I give the mama a break and my husband takes his son and granddaughter on the light rail, to the park, on the horseback carriage ride. I take the mama and my own daughter and we shop, shop, drive, shop. Then we all meet back at the house. We HAVE to go to the local festival together. We started out just fine, then a downpour of "cats and dogs" along with lightening. Late nights, long days and I'm tired!
Sunday is "bye bye Grandma Nanci" day. Push off is early and I look around the house that's full of leftover visitor stuff, empty glasses, dirty carpet, sheets to wash etc. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every minute, but now - "I AM TIRED". Where did my long weekend go? Now, it's recovery time and I'm enjoying my crochet habit on the couch after I cleaned the downstairs of my house.
I'm playing the mind games. "Get up - clean your room" "go to the gym" " eat breakfast" "call your best friend" etc! But the reality of all of this is - I need a break! I'm tired, and I just need a rest!!!
Doing the best I can at the moment, but whew.... BUSY Weekend! That's all I can say!
