Come Monday.......

I didn't get anything done today that I was planning on accomplishing! I had piles of laundry, a house that is a wreck and no groceries. Instead of sending Deaner off the work this morning like a good wife should, he decided that he was not feeling up to par and needed to take the day off. I should have known right then and there that I needed to wipe my agenda clean because I wasn't going to get anything done with him hanging around!!

It has been a very pleasant day though! We slept in, read, had lunch together, went to the gym, went grocery shopping and now we are home and Deaner is making a big pot of soup for dinner! Doesn't he sound just like he is on his death bed!? I'd call it more of a mental health day I guess and I am happy to report that our patient is recovering nicely. At first I felt as though I had just been duped into going to the gym but it was nice to get a hard workout in and feel like I did something worthwhile. It is also nice to have it done by 4:00pm!!

This weekend was a lot of fun. Friday night we went to eat dinner at the new pizza place that we have discovered. It was great and afterwards we can home and had a quiet evening. Saturday we had a Halloween party that started at 3pm at some of our friend's house. It was great! Their house is phenomenal (right on the Rhein River) and the party was definitely a blast! They had more food than I have seen in a long time! We had to leave pretty early because we had promised to be home to hand out candy to the neighborhood kids. Thank goodness we can home because I think every child under the age of 12 came here. Even one child that definitely needed to shave. At one point I thought we were running low on candy and Deaner and I had an emergency ghost tootsie pop making session and of course, once we got the bag made, not one more child came to our door!!

It was not a good football weekend for any of us. Ole Miss tanked against Auburn, Georgia got clobbered by Florida but perhaps the most awful loss of all was for Deaner as his Virginia Caveliers lost to DUKE. Seriously? This is the second year in a row to lose to Duke. If their coach isn't fired this year I'll be dumbfounded. All in all it was as bad a football outing as you can get in our family. Guess we will just have to buck up and wait for next weekend!

I hope that everyone is having a decent Monday. It is pouring rain in Wiesbaden, it's 5:00pm and dark, and it is getting cold. Thank god we already went to the gym and I am cozy and comfy in my pjs!

What a nice day with your hubby! Everyone needs a mental health day from time to time! :)

Exact same thing happened to us on Halloween. I sprinted out to CVS to buy candy right as we were running out....and then not a single trick-or-treater came by after that!

Sounds like a busy weekend and such a fun day :-) I love it when I get to spend time at home all day with my husband! And at least you had trick-or-treaters - we bought 2 big bags, and only 4 came :-(

A great weekend, except for Georgia, Ole Miss, and the Cavs. OH, and all the rain.

That is about as bad a football weekend as you can have!
