weekending alone/Hello Monday

School is out for everyone in the area today, so I'm taking the day to reset everything in the house before the rest of the week hits.  I have mountains of laundry to do from the weekend and everyone being gone, and I feel like things need to be put back where they belong.  I have dinner already in the crock pot and I love that I don't have to think of it all day.

Here's a little bit of my weekend, starting with Friday.

It was so cold outside!  We went to McAlister's for lunch for the soup I knew Dad would want, and then we came back here and talked before we had our coffee for the afternoon.  Every Friday flies by.  The four-ish hours we spend together seems more like one.

I took him home and went to Missy's office to help her with something, and Jonah and Noah checked themselves in for the weekend D-Now event they had at our church.  I love having sons who drive, and I love their independence.  They were able to check themselves in because I'd already completed all the necessary paperwork for the weekend.

I came home, changed into comfy clothes, and watched The Good Doctor.

On Saturday, I went to exchange some jeans, and bought a cute t-shirt I found on clearance.  And then I went to Lowe's to buy some new decorative lights for my mantle, because my old ones went out last week, and it was looking dark and sad without them.  I love my new ones, but I'll have to get a picture another time. 

I came back home for a bit, then I went out to Mom's for dinner.  Graham was around later on in the evening, and he had been around a little on Friday night as well, but everyone else was gone.

Sunday morning found me at church by about eight fifteen that morning for praise team rehearsal and sound check.  I was glad to see my boys for just a moment, before they darted off to lunch with friends.  I came home and took a long nap because my head felt like it was going to explode, and then I just stayed put the rest of the night.  I missed choir because of my head, and the fact I haven't seen my family, and that I won't be at church next week.

Jonah and Noah weren't home long and they went to a friend's house, so I really didn't see anyone all that much.  I ate some leftovers for dinner again, and then I watched more of The Good Doctor.  I'm almost caught up to where we are right now.

This picture above are the junior guys at our church...I don't even know half of them, because they're always around the same small group of guys.

It was a good weekend.  It went by fast for me, but according to my youngest two, it was long.  Drew led a group of guys, and he was gone as well, and Todd was part of the tech team.  I haven't hardly seen him in a week.  He's been working at the church every night almost, so I am looking forward to being with him more this week, before he and Graham leave to go out of town next Sunday.

Thanks for reading!  I'm linking up with Tanya over at The Other Side of the Road, and her friends for this post.  Love to all.


  1. I got a lasagna going in our crock pot this morning; I love when I don't have to give supper another thought for the rest of the day!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your headache. I hate feeling like I'm missing out on the events of the day if I'm not feeling well. Thanks for linking up with Hello Monday! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  3. Crock Pot dinners for the win! It always makes me feel so accomplished. ;) Thanks for stopping by, Mother of 3!

  4. Thank you, Tanya! It was probably weather-related. I felt better when I finally went to bed last night and today was headache-free, thankfully. It's always a pleasure! I love linkups!


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog!
