to tackle yet another week....
This past weekend--by design--was not intended to be one of accomplishments. No, it was more intended to be one of family, friends, vodka and gin. And, that's just what it was. We were treated to a special blend of weather, spirit and celebration. We got to enjoy fun traditions, wonderful friends and those special folks we only see a few times a year. And, we also got to carve out some extra time to remember that we are a family--of 4. It was a wonderful respite from the hectic days, the over scheduled days, the cold days and the stressful days. So very nice!
Vince was here--home on a quick Spring break. So, we got to spend some rare family time--just the four of us--hanging out. It was wonderful. Carmen even took the day off from his hectic schedule on Friday, we allowed Toni to take a little unexpected Spring break day of her own and we all piled in the car for a quick jaunt. Many hours and laughs later--we all fell into our beds under one roof.
And, of course, you know what we did on Saturday....I hope to share some pix soon!
It was all quite lovely--from beginning to end. Well, except for my major headache yesterday and my incredibly sore legs. But, even with that, yesterday turned out quite sweet--with Toni and I doing a little shopping at some our favorite haunts, picking up our fav gourmet lollipops and signing up for a healthy cooking class together--on a whim! Then, we headed to meet up with Carmen and Vince for a laugh-filled farewell lunch at a quaint tucked away spot where they have the most amazing crab bisque in all the land.....followed by waving to Vince as he drove away from the rickety lot--this time knowing all was well with his life and his dissertation (clearly one in the same these days!). Then, we spent the rest of the afternoon languishing on the couch--first watching Vicky, Christina, Barcelona (watch it!) and then digging into a pile of magazines.
Yes, it was the kind of weekend that makes Monday one of choices--do I berate myself for not getting anything done or do I applaud myself for not getting anything done?
Only one more day til St. Pat's Day!
