This past weekend, we decided to just relax but an unfortunate turn of events left Greg having to attend a visitation at a funeral home on Friday night. We also had plans to have Faith on Friday and Saturday, so that put us in a little bit of a jam. Faith fixed it for us by telling Greg that she wanted me and her to have a girls night, so Greg went to the visitation while we girls hung back. After a quick trip to EB Games, we decided to pick up coffees and cake at Coffee Culture, and then load up the table in the family room with snacks while we built a fort. Many of you know how much I love things to be orderly and tidy, but once in a while you just have to go back to your roots and for me that means pulling the chairs out of the dining room and stringing blankets over the furniture :D. Greg came home a few hours later to find us hunkered down inside our fort with the carnage of our snacking all around us while we watched "Alien vs. Predator" on the big screen, the family room blazing with every candle we could find :).
When the movie was over and the mess cleaned up, Faith asked if we could have a sleep over. She used the argument that I hadnt seen her in almost a month, so we kicked Greg to the next bedroom and Faithy and I had a sleepover in my room. The next day we went to the pet store, chapters, starbucks and saw the movie "Clash of the Titans" in 3D. All in all, I’d say it was a very relaxing weekend! I also got a gift and a card from the girls although Skylagh wasnt here this weekend. Faith gave it to me on Saturday morning and wished me a Happy Step-Mothers Day. Very sweet.
Next weekend we’re heading to Niagara for some good visiting, a knitting party and a chance for me to give my mom her mothers day gift. Three great weekends in a row, how perfect :).
