The Weekend Retrospective

We are coming to the end of what seems like the never ending preparation for the baby.  It's very close...the day where all the practice is put into action for real.  This past weekend was more of the same...get ready for the rest of your life.

Saturday - was a run around day.  My car was inspected and it passed.  Not bad for the 8 year old vehicle.  The only thing it needed was brake rotors, which was more money we don't exactly have, but needed to be done for safety, so it was done.  The wife, on a normal day can hang with the best of them, but since she is 9+ months pregnant, doesn't have much energy these days.  So, I told her to head home and I would wait for my car.  Even the woman at our garage knew she was tired.  We've been going there for the better part of 11 yrs.  They treat us well and we love that there are still honest people in that business.  Very difficult to find, so if you have a good garage, stay with them as long as you can.

Sunday - we had to do a little food shopping before heading to a family birthday.  The wife got about 10 minutes into our shopping trip and was exhausted.  She tends to push herself a little too much, still.  So it was nap time for her before the party.  We got to her mom's house early, because I had to unload some boxes at the House of the Terror Twins ( needs that evil laugh).  The great thing is, they weren't there.  It's not the Twins, they are four years old and are doing the best they can with the hand they were dealt.  The problem is the mom, but that's another story for another time.  Everyone arrived for the party about 20 or so, minutes after we finished.  The party was a great time.  Again, I'd say that has some to do with certain people being elsewhere, but I think it's more that everyone gets along pretty well.  The kids had a great time playing outside, as the weather was just nice enough to go outside.

All in all, it was a pretty good weekend.  I will now continue with all the work that needs to be completed before the big day.  It's coming whether I'm done or not.
