Last Friday, I went to a friend's house after work. It is a brand-new place (for her), and she moved just the day before. We had pizza and wine and watched The Hangover (which you seriously cannot watch too many times) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which involved a lot of reading as it is a foreign film. After that, I drove home and fell promptly asleep.
On Saturday, Little Miss woke up very early which gave me about 4 hours of sleep, and I'm a girl who likes her sleep. We had breakfast and got ready for the day. Husband woke up early and wanted to do some errands. Because Little Miss loves going out and driving, we decided we'd venture out as a family. We all piled into the car and went to Best Buy for satellite radio for the new car. While Husband was working on that, Little Miss and I walked around the store and then to the nearby pet store to look at the animals. Little Miss got a treat. Then, we were going to go to lunch, but Little Miss fell asleep in the car so we just went to Sister's house. We picked up her spare car seat, fed her fish and then head back out on the road to lunch. We had lunch at Maggiano's. Little Miss was now working on no nap, but she was good. She ate first and then we took turns eating while the other walked Little Miss around. Then, we went grocery shopping and then back to Best Buy. By then, it was around 6PM. Little Miss and I both took a nap when we got home. At around 8:30, we woke her up for dinner and she went right back to sleep after that.
Late that night, Husband went grocery shopping to pick up some things we forgot. It turned out, sometime between dinner and midnight, someone went by our car and scratched it all up. It was very traumatic. Husband got rubbing compound and most of the scratches are gone, but there are still a couple of lingering ones which is frustrating considering the car was ours for less than a week.
On Sunday, Husband made us pancakes and then later, I met friends at the mall for lunch at Five Guys and then two of us went to see Toy Story 3. I was so proud of myself for making it through without crying and then I got to the end of the movie and lost it. Stupid animated movies. They get me everytime. We had a nice family dinner, bath time and then bid the weekend farewell.
I'd like to say the week was low key, but it wasn't.
