Weekend Chat!3:48 PM
Oh I just hate doing this but I have so many wonderful favorite blogs in my bloglines account and if I don't stay on top of it and check everyday, I end up with this little notification telling me that there are "300 + New Items".
While I would love to just go through everything and see what's going on in your neck of the woods, the fact is that I honestly don't have the time for it. So I did what I had to this afternoon, I sat down at the computer and hit "Mark All Read". I feel awful but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do right?
So with that said, I do intend on catching up on the blogs tomorrow, when I have a little more time, thanks to the long weekend and my kids being off school until Wednesday. Is it bad that I'm already dreading the bickering and fighting between them? What is it with siblings, they love each other to death but put them in the same room...wait, same house for a day or two and that's it. It's like watching longtime enemies trying to contain themselves.
Yesterday we did some pumpkin carving and decorating outside in the front yard....we're not done but it's looking a lot more like Halloween outside here. For the first time in what seems like forever, I stepped outside around 7pm to see the lit pumpkins and I felt cold. Cold enough where I ran back into the house with my teeth chattering, a clear sign that I'm no longer used to the cold of Idaho and the day we return I'll have some serious issues on my plate. LOL
It feels wonderful though, there's nothing like being able to leave the house and enjoy yourself without feeling like you're melting with every step you take.
Friday night I spent watching the Most Haunted Live event, all 7 hours. I can't believe I stayed up until 3am watching this, but you know as much as I enjoy paranormal shows, that wasn't the reason for me staying up so late...it was because of the location the team was at. Gettysburg!
You all know that I'm not American, but my husband and children are and therefore I have an appetite for learning the history of this beautiful country that I now call my home. Obviously I have heard of Gettysburg before, I mean, who hasn't? But to learn about exactly what happened, to go through the different houses that were situated in the town where the battle took place all around and to learn about the history of this amazing event, was just unbelievable. It's definitely at the top of my list of places to visit.
Dinner tonight is simple and quick, Pumpkin Pancakes. We LOVE doing breakfast for dinner on the weekends, especially on those days when we've been out of the house all day, or watching movies, playing games or enjoying the playground and today is one of those lazy days.
I wish I had more to talk about but I'm having one of those blank days, so much to say and can't think of a single thing. Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend.
