I didn't have any exciting plans for my week off and my girls still had school the whole week, but this is my brief recap of what I managed to do to fill my time:
Monday- Shopping for a bit. I managed to get a new pair of Jambu sandals and a new pair of jeans. I also visited the library. Ran on the treadmill
Tuesday- Ran on the treadmill. Got the oil changed in my van. Made a nice meal of manicotti with watermelon and zucchini
Wednesday-Dental appointment for Middle Sister, followed by a very brief stop at the mall. Ran outside for the first time this spring.
Thursday-Family trip to Dairy Queen, a morning massage and a trip to Sam's Club
Friday- went with my girls and a co-worker/friend and her daughters to the Mall of America. Lunch at Rainforest Cafe. Supper at the A&W Drive-In in Spring Valley, Minnesota. The girls are posing with the "little big man" as I called him when growing up. This was a usual stop for my family during car trips to Minnesota. My own girls have never been there, but I enjoyed this nostalgic stop.
What I didn't get done?
Watching The Help which is one of my favorite books. I just couldn't justify sitting inside when it is 80 degrees outside.
Catching up on Downton Abbey. I did start Season 2, but am no further than the first episode.
Cleaning. I could have done so much more.
School work. It is now calling my name.
