We did A LOT this past holiday weekend. On Friday, before we even left for Kentucky, I cleaned this whole house so that when we returned, we could just relax and unpack. Also, the van we were going to be traveling 4+ hours in, also needed a good cleaning. Once that was finished, and the packing was done, we were on the road! The drive was pleasant until we hit a huge thunder storm when we hit Cincinnati. Next, our tire pressure light came on and I started having nightmares about being stranded roadside, and hour from our destination, in a lightening storm, with a crying sleepy baby. Luckily, we made it to our friends house before the tire went flat [that was the following morning’s problem.
Once the tire was fixed, we got to hang in the pool with some friends before heading to Mass and then the church’s festival. The rest of my food choices for that evening can be summed up in one word: carbs. I had a kielbasa sausage wrapped in pretzel dough with cheese dipping sauce, and for dessert I had a delicious waffle from Marty’s Waffle truck. I just got the classic sugar waffle with whipped cream, but there were nutella and salted caramel options as well, that looked just as tempting.
Then the lightening returned for round 2 of its vengeance… and since our baby was about to pass out, we decided to call it quits on the festival, head back to where we were staying, and watch King of the Hill while our baby slept. For those of you who don’t know, Hubs and I have a secret obsession with Hank Hill. We don’t have cable at home, so whenever we’re on vacation or staying somewhere else, we always try to catch it on Cartoon Network at 8 pm during adult swim.
The next day, we were just beyond exhausted and headed back to Ohio. Our daughter was not pleased with the drive, and the last leg of our trip remains a screaming fussy, blur in my head. We all went to bed early so that we could actually enjoy hubs’ day off. Labor Day itself welcomed us with some flooding in the basement. Well, good thing we came home early and got a good nights rest! Yeah, the morning was spent with me distracting the baby while Justin cleaned out everything that was soaking wet [including my favorite print of the San Diego skyline]. After that tragedy was taken care of, we just hung around the house blowing bubbles… that’s really all we were up for.
So our “restful” weekend was anything but that, yet we still managed to have fun a spend some quality time with family. I hope you all got to relax more than I did, and here’s to the short week ahead! [It’s already Tuesday! Yay!]
