Pampering and A Day Off

This was a good weekend. Saturday my future SIL and I went to have manicures and pedicures, and then get something for lunch. We had such a nice afternoon! Going to get my nails done, while it's awesome, is just not something that ever seems to make it to the top of my priority list. If someone says, "Oh, let's make a date to get our nails done," I'm all over that. But for some reason it's not something that I go to do by myself. I think part of the reason is that I have a large supply of nail polish (it's one of my weaknesses) and I actually like to do my nails myself. But, on Saturday it was so nice to sit and have my nails and toes done, and sit in the massaging chair while someone rubbed my feet. Ahh! That was nice!

My FIL is an airplane nut and he's turning my kids in airplane nuts, too. Over Memorial Day weekend there is an air show here. My in-laws have gone for the last several years. Last year they wanted to bring the kids, but I thought it was not a good idea. They asked again this year if they could bring them and MJ and I said, "why not?" So, Saturday night I packed up lunches, snacks, and drinks for the boys and my in-laws were here bright and early at 7:00 am to pick them up and take them away for the day.

This is going to sound silly, but I didn't know what to do with myself! There was no one calling for me. No kids fighting. No television blasting. It was quiet. Wow! It was SOOOO nice. MJ and I went out for lunch (Bobby's Burger Palace again. I love their milk shakes!) and then we went to see "Angels and Demons". I thought this movie was much better than "The DaVinci Code" and for me it was great because we got to go out and I didn't have to worry about a babysitter.

The kids had fun at the airshow, although it was a really long day for both of them. Their little faces are all glowing from being out on the beach all day yesterday. So, I got most of the day off, the kids had fun with their grandparents, and everyone had a good day. I don't think I can ask for anything more than that!

Oh I LOVED the book and read it before I read DaVinci...yeah, and did you hear crickets? I do when noone is around and I'm so lost! I'm glad you had a great weekend!

Glad you got a day to yourself and MJ. :) That's always a good thing because everyone needs a little break every now and then. I know what you mean, though...when the kids are supposed to be gone, I can think all sorts of great things to do. When they actually leave though, I might as well just walk around in circles -- I'm lost and I miss them! LOL

Glad you enjoyed the movie, too. Sounds like a great weekend! :)
