On Saturday #162 I was not feeling well. I got up with Rolfie but ended up going back to bed, where I shocked my family by sleeping until a few minutes after 1 in the afternoon. I don't think I have slept that late since I was much younger... like maybe 22 and frequenting bars on weekend evenings.
When I got up, I was disoriented, I was exhausted and I sat down and cried. Finally my husband convinced me to get up, get dressed and get out and about with them. We drove around for an hour, stopping at yard sales, but I didn't even get out of the car at most of the ones we stopped at.
We dropped off our recycling, and made a trip to Lowe Volk Park, where we visited the Nature Center briefly, I had to look at their turtles again, then we walked one of the trails. The exercise and fresh air made me feel a little bit better.
We stopped by a little Dairy Bar on our way home so I could get an orange slushy with ice cream mixed in, then came home to cook dinner, do a quick clean up and before I knew it, it was time for Rolfie to have a bath and go to bed.
I spent the rest of the evening lounging on the sofa watching Curb Your Enthusiasm, which I recently discovered and find to be hilarious.
I called it an early night, crawling into bed to read for a few minutes.
This morning I woke up early, got ready and headed out with my family to go to breakfast at Bob Evan's where we met my cousins, Ross, Susie and Riley along with Susie's Dad. It was so nice to have family in the next town over and be able to visit with Susie, who truth be told is my favorite cousin by marriage.
Rolfie of course was Rolfie, and hid under the table the entire time, refusing to eat. Gotta love that boy!
We came home so I could get a little work accomplished, and now I am enjoying the sunlight on my face while the boys are playing in the yard.
It was a very slow paced weekend, but it was about as nice as could be.
