This weekend was wonderful because we had NOTHING planned. I love weekends like this most of all.
We ate dinner out on Friday with some friends at one of our favorite places (Texas Roadhouse).
Ryan and Kyle worked on the house Saturday and Sunday, so I had time to myself. I picked up the house a little and finished my book club book. I also organized the office and sorted through paperwork that had been accumulated. Wow….. a LOT of paperwork had accumulated. I’m still in the midst of getting it all straightened out and then I’ll share how I organize it all. I have realized that my little filing cabinet hasn’t been working so I’m trying something different.
I also fit in a few bargains this weekend. I’ve been researching ways to cut costs and get better deals when I shop, not out of necessity but out of practicality. It seems awfully wasteful to spend as much as we do on grocery and necessity items. I’m working on a post to share this week about the steals that I got. I hope you enjoy it.
Ryan leaves for Texas on Thursday. For three weeks.
I’m a little bummed and will certainly miss him. But, it’s okay. It’s been so wonderful to have him here most of the winter. Last year, he was in Texas for most of January-April. This will be his first trip over this winter. And, I just feel so lucky that it’s only three weeks at a time.
So, instead of sulking (and being jealous of him enjoying 80 degree weather), I’m going to use the time to organize more, relax and read, spend time with friends and keep up with school work. I’ve got some other things up my sleeve, too. And, it’s only three weeks….. =/
