I got a jump start on the weekend Friday and headed home to pick up my baby girl. We had a girls only weekend without anything really planned. On the way home I grabbed a movie from the Redbox and picked her up a little early. I did a little boring stuff, like laundry then we popped in the movie, Monte Carlo with Selena Gomez. About half way through the movie I went upstairs to put some clothes away and when I came back B was sprawled out on the couch snoozing. So I turned that off and watched I Don't Know How She Does It. It was a cute one, and reminded me of how I feel sometimes--constantly making lists, always in a rush, never quite pulling it all off.
Saturday, we had a late breakfast at the annual Lion's Club pancake breakfast in Covington. We usually go each year but I never know ahead of time. This year I saw a post on facebook about it minutes before we got up and got ready.
Me: Hey B, do you want pancakes for breakfast?
From there we came home to do a little work then went on a brief(ish) shopping spree. We had two things to return, but of course we ended up coming back with more than we planned. I love our girl time though. Brooklyn talks with me about everything and sounds like such a little grown up when we get together. Now that she is getting older, it is getting easier to do these errands. Not as many complaints or at least more time before the complaints start. And she still truly enjoys spending time with me. That is surprising to me because I keep feeling like she is going to hit that age where I am just old, boring, mean, and completely embarrassing to be around. I've made it this far though, so I'm going to keep trying to make it even farther, lol.
Anyways, Sunday was spent mostly at home finishing up some chores and waiting on J to get back from the country. After a quick grocery store run and taking B to the g'parents' to spend the night (since she was off the next day for President's Day), it was off to bed and time to start a new week.
