MIA all Weekend

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
Well folks, looks like I've been Missing in Action all weekend.
Friday I spent the entire day volunteering at the kids' school book fair. (Oy Vey!) It was pouring out all day, which means I more than likely wouldn't have had any internet access anyway, because my ISP only works when the weather is perfectly clear (if then).

Spent all day yesterday with the kids at the Fall festival here in town and they had a great time. DH was going to be downstate working the entire weekend and I was pleasantly surprised when he arrived home early! So we took the kids on a haunted hayride at a friends place, only my oldest wanted to "haunt" and ended up running into some big metal thing and cut his face up, has a golf ball size knot on the side of his head and genuinely looks like he's ready for halloween as a Car Accident Victim.

Got home to clean up the gash in the side of head and finally settled down for the evening and it occurred to me that I hadn't been on all day and probably should add some late freebies. Only, I discovered the server had crashed earlier. Ugh. Twenty minutes later we were back up and running, but I had forgotten my tea out on the counter, so much for relaxing with a hot mug of tea, dh had fallen asleep in the recliner, so I gave up for the night and headed to bed, hence, No Freebies.

It's absolutely beautiful this morning, a warm 56F and was perfect for our morning 2 mile trek, coffee in hand. Today is our Fall Clean Up day, drain the pool and winterize it and in general just get ready for winter.

I can hardly believe that this month is nearly over. Where has the time gone?

    I is good to hear that your son is not hurt too bad. Wow, I hope he is ok Kids will be kids huh?? It sucks when you are getting ready to enjoy something like a nice hot cup of tea or coffee and then distracted to come back later to find its cold, and it really tastes awful when you "nuke" it. ;]

    Well you probably needed a break.

    Still 56F sounds cold to me chilly

    Time really seems to fly....

    Take care and I hope your son heals ok!!

    Wow what a scratched up little face. Bet he feels really goofy about it now but would do it all over again if he had the chance-boys seem to be that way .

    Hope this week is a better one for you.

    Yes Liss, You Were Missed. The site was running really slow--then couldn't get on it at all. Thought something to be wrong w/my comp. But everyone needs time off to enjoy and forget about work.

    Glad to hear your son is ok. As they say boys will be boys or (kids will be kids) like Lynn said. Believe me I know that saying to well---grew up with 5 brothers & have 2 grown sons. Never a dull min., (Now your son also has a new picture for the scrap book).

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.......
