My kind of weekend

I like weekends when you go with what you feel like doing and not with what you should be doing. I spent some of my Saturday morning at a garage sale with two of my favorite bloggy buddies, a mother and daughter, Bacardi Mama & Show Some Lovin. I found some neat treasures there and even had a chance to sit and chat a while. They are only about 20 minutes away, in the next town. Then, I decided to travel to the next town to visit my daughter and the grandkids. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching Ivy walk and stubble around and the boys hitting golf balls. Then I figured it was time to go and get some groceries, if hubby and I wanted to eat, so we went to the store, came home, made lasagna and finished up the laundry.
Sunday was another fun day of meeting Steph & family for lunch and back to their house to watch the kids play and hubby to fix a bike chain. Then on to visit my folks and home. I did pick up the broom 1 time to sweep the entry way. My dishes were done, bathrooms sanitized and laundry did get finished. So what if I didn't vaccum or dust. The only thing that matters is, I didn't feel the guilt I use to feel when out of my routine. I am beginning to like weekends better these days.

Sounds like THE perfect weekend. I agree with the "no guilt" thing about not cleaning and dusting and mopping every inch of the house. Barry and I had tickets to the Red Sox game for Saturday night, but the remnants of Hurricane Danny came blowing in, so we went to an early movie. When we got out of the theater, it had stopped raining... and Barry said "OH, NO. What if they played the game??" Well, they did... and we were so frustrated that we actually BELIEVED the weather channel. It was too late to head to Boston, so we watched the game on TV... but we would have loved to have been at Fenway Park. Oh, well... there's always the playoffs. HOPEFULLY!! I heard recently that "we only get so many weekends in our lives"... and boy, did that hit home. Spending time with kids and grandkids and husbands and friends sure beats housework!!

Good for you! Cleaning is an ongoing, never-ending cycle if you think about it. I gave up trying to keep everything clean all at the same time. As long as the house is livable (and can be "showable" in an hour or two's time) I'm ok with it. Glad you got to enjoy yourself so much this weekend!
Are you still walking on your lunch breaks?
