Our Weekend

First off, I would like to know the statistics of increases in car wrecks, health issues etc. in the few days immediately following the daylight savings time change.  I mean, it's not like I really lost any sleep.  I went to bed at the same time and woke at the same time.  However, as I sat at the stoplight this morning, I looked around at people guzzling coffee, yawning like crazy and heads slumped down in their hands as they rub their eyes (me included).  Even Lallie said last night, "but I don't want to go to bed, it's not dark."  This morning she said "but mommy, it's still dark out" when I woke her up.  This is just a tough transistion.  The fact that the sun is rising right in your line of sight while driving, certainly doesn't help the yawning and eye squinting!

Moving on.  This weekend was jam packed with fun.  We spent nearly all day Saturday outside as it was absolutely gorgeous!  Husband did some brick paver work on our driveway and sidewalk, but since Lallie, the dog and I hung out with him, he didn't feel really upset about having to do the work.

Saturday evening, I attended a fabulous Junior League event called LunaFest.  It featured 10 short, but amazing films, by women, for women and about women.  It was emotional and powerful.  There was shopping from local vendors (always a tough area for me as I could buy everything!) and there were auctions (which I think I won's actually for Husband, not me, it's a surprise).  Plus, I had a great time with a lot of women I've had the pleasure of meeting of the last few months.

Sunday, was a lazy, lazy day.  As you could tell from yesterday's videos, Husband just did some exterior house cleaning while Lallie played in the water (yes, it was that nice) and then we watched UK barely win the SEC championship.  We won by one point and we got to overtime by the hair on Cousins knuckle....quite literally.  Those who watched the game know what I'm talking about and most of us stood pacing in our living rooms while the refs watched the tape over, and over, and over, and over again to see if we really did go into overtime or if we lost.  It was a real nail biter!

So, that was the extent of our weekend.  Now we're both ready for 9 pm, because we have to get up at what feels like the crack of dawn, because it's still dark....even though it's 7 am!


  1. I didn't get much less sleep either, but I'm still exhausted, too. Sounds like a fun weekend!

  2. Yeah, that game about gave me a heart attack! Looking forward to the NCAA tournament!
