If You Give A Mom A Weekend...

Ugh, I'm sick. I've had a cold since Thursday and I just can't seem to shake it. Luckily it is not the flu. But it's wiping me out nonetheless. However, lest you think that stopped me from running aorund like a maniac this weekend, let me set the record straight...

Friday I took a sick day from work to "rest." Yeah right. I ended up running mad errands. I got my hair done, did a return at the mall, bought an outfit for Saturday's holiday party, picked up our holiday cards, and took the girls to the library after school to get a book in order to be prepared for Saturday. Friday evening we (finally) out up the tree! Thank heavens for "shatterproof" ornaments. Really, I have no idea why it was so hard for the girls to get the ornaments ON the tree.

Saturday I took the girls to see If You Give A Pig A Pancake. It was an adorable show and I was glad that I had them read the book beforehand because they were able to follow along which made them even more engaged. Then we went to the bakery to pick up holiday cookies for a party we had later that evening. Next we stopped off at home, had lunch, picked up L'il Buddy and Hubby and made our way to a birthday party at a kids' museum. It was lots of fun. After a speed change in the museum bathroom, we were all ready to head to our church holiday party. Where I ate way too much.

Sunday we went to church (and I was so proud of Giggles for going to Children's Church like a big girl and not even coming back to look for me once!) We went home, had lunch and Chatterbox and I went on a special excursion to pick up some hair products for Giggles that a woman at the birthday party told me about. Giggles has SO MUCH HAIR and I am continually searching for some helpful products. If any of you are in need of hair products for curly hair, check out Miss Jessie's - and they are actually having a buy one, get one FREE sale right now! After that we did our usual Sunday evening grocery run and I came home and made bacon burgers. Hubby and I also did the girls' hair, which was a big production as usual. I texturized Chatterbox's and Hubby washed and deep conditioned Giggles' It was a 2 hour affair. Then I had a conference call for church and THEN I was finally free to collapse into bed...and get ready for the start of a new week.

Say, if you have a pre-paid vacation that you are dying to give away, throw it my way would ya? I'm beat.

oh man, I wish I knew about the Give a Pig a Pancake Show. My kids would have loved it. Have to keep that theater group on my list. Thanks.
