Our weekend was totally packed. Do you ever have a weekend so busy that, by Sunday afternoon it felt like Saturday was days ago? Whew!
We went to bed early Friday night because I’m an adult (not). I’ve been getting up at 4:45 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for early morning CrossFit sessions. We made a quick grocery list and went shopping before it got dark. By 8pm Friday night, I was pooped. We even had my simple Vegetarian Three Way recipe for dinner. Quick, tasty, simple, filling.
Pudge is always pooped. Cat life is so hard…
Saturday breakfast was a treat! We had eggs, fruit, and cinnamon rolls. Yum! ADT was at our house bright and early Saturday morning to install a security system (don’t rob us, please), and then we headed out for a day of soccer. We had a game together at 12, and then I had a game at 3:30. We won the first game, and then Sean headed to the second game with me to talk, hang out, and watch other games before my second game started. He left right before I warmed up so he could clean his part of the house (I cleaned my part when the ADT guy was there). My team won the second game by a landslide (7-0, I believe; I lost count after a while), and I made the long trek home from Mercer fields back to Woodstock.
Still need new soccer socks and cleats, but those are my fave!
I changed clothes but didn’t bother to shower, and then Sean and I headed out to try a new-to-us restaurant in Woodstock: Canyon’s Burger Company. Sean got a turkey burger with crinkle fries, and I got the spicy black bean burger with cole slaw. Though it was a little greasier than most black bean burgers I’ve had before, it was still quite delicious. I’m not super keen on cole slaw, but the Canyon recipe had a little bit of pepper in it, which I thought really upped the flavor and gave it a little kick. We even sat out on the patio and enjoyed the weather and the people watching! I’d be happy to make that place a regular eatery for us. Yum to the max!
Sunday started with a trip to Lowe’s (seriously, we go to Lowe’s like 2 times a day on the weekends) for a bucket and car wash stuff. Since we have a drive way now, we washed both our cars inside and out while doing laundry. I feel so efficient. After a lunch of leftovers, we went to see about getting a new mattress. I haven’t been sleeping well lately, and I always seem to wake up sore. Sean could sleep on a rock in the desert. But our mattress was over 13 years old, so we thought we could go see if there were any good sales. Fortunately for us, there was a big sale on the mattress we both liked, and we ended up buying a new (very tall) mattress on Sunday.
After that, we headed to our Sunday soccer league to play Black Magic, one of our biggest rivals in the league. They seem to have lost some key players, and, after a really good game with awesome passing and amazing shots, we won 2-1. Victories all around this weekend!
After another trip to Lowe’s, we came home with new faucets for our bathrooms. Sean and I felt pretty handy after replacing the master bathroom faucets all by ourselves, so I’ll make sure to add a Home or DIY section to the site and add a tutorial with the resources we used.
Dontcha just love a handyman in a soccer jersey? Bow chicka bow bow.
Our mattress was supposed to be delivered from 8-11pm Sunday night. Sean wanted to get it right away (read: the same day we bought it), and he figured even if they were late, they’d be there by 11:30pm at the latest. I tried to sleep in the office room from 9:30 to 12:30, but Sean stayed up until they got there at –get this– 1am! It was the weirdest delivery of my life having people in the house while I was half asleep, in my pajamas at 1am. Sean was not happy, of course, but we quickly made the bed and headed to sleep around 1:30. We’re going to have our delivery fee refunded, so at least we’re getting $50 back.
What a weekend!
How was your weekend? Have you ever had a really late delivery on something?
