Soccer mom, Plumber's crack

This weekend was once again a blur. I wish we could figure out how to make our weekends as long as our work weeks!! It was a busy one for sure. The monkeys insisted on going with the nanny Friday so I had the morning to myself and I got some major organizing done. Stuff that had been driving me crazy for weeks. In no way did I complete all tasks, but I felt quite accomplished with what I did. So much so, that I took a long nap with the monkeys after I picked them up!

Saturday morning I was good and got up early to go for a run before the husband had to go to work. It was a tough run, but I felt better for doing it. Saturday was also big monkey's first soccer game. It went pretty well, very hot. He did a good job of participating. Did not like the defender's position, but enjoyed the forward position. He needs to be where the action is, that is for sure. No dragonfly chasing, but he did try to take his shirt off at one point in the game.

We went to sesame street live afterwards and the monkeys had a blast. I was very worn out by the time we got home and decided to "take a rest".

Sunday we went to the local outdoor mall. They have a water fountain that they encourage kids to play in. They even let you have birthday parties there. It is the best thing ever. Free, nice setting, fun, and no real chance of drowning, and I don't have to put on a bathing suit. The monkeys had a great time. Yes, little monkey has plumber's crack. He is quite proud of it, refusing to pull his pants up. Who am I to argue?!

I was pretty much spent after such a fun filled weekend, so I went home and took another "rest". Does this make me lazy in your eyes!!??

What a fun weekend! I love those water fountains but my son hates water that shoots out of the ground.

Mommies need lots of rest!

soccer mom days are tiring and are very deserving of a nap! I know you live in a different state than I, but am wondering if you run with a partner, and how you found one. Mine moved, and I don't know how to find a running mate (for my Saturday runs). Any ideas?

Looks like a wonderful time!

Let me know when you figure it out - I'd probably even pay for the secret!

Hoosier Mom: I lucked into my running partner. She is an old college roomate that I ran into at the start of a race here. Turns out we had been living in the same city (a couple of blocks away) for several years. Weird I know. I would look on the internet for any local running groups and email them. They may be able to suggest someone or a group that is your pace.
Good luck!
