If We Were Having Coffee… 7/31/17

I know, I know. The weekend is over. Believe me, I’m well aware that it is Monday. I had planned to meet up with you yesterday but it just didn’t happen. I was pleased to see that the linkup was still open (thanks, Diana!) so I thought we could grab a quick cup.

We had a good weekend! My daughter elected to forgo a big birthday party this year in lieu of a sleepover with one friend. So we picked up that friend on Saturday and we went to a bouncy house place and the mall. I know a lot of malls are dying out (and so is ours to be honest) but we found a couple of fun things to do there. The kids did a bouncy trampoline thing (where they connect you to a bunch of big rubber bands and let you jump) and they also rode motorized animal scooters (they are basically giant stuffed animals on wheels). Then we came back to our house for the sleepover.

So it seems I didn’t get much done this weekend. At least, I didn’t get much done that I wanted to. I did a lot of house cleaning on Saturday which led to back pain. I tended to the kids which kept me somewhat busy. Sunday I basically succumbed to headache and back pain instead of being productive. It was disappointing and I hate when I have days like that.

I am waiting for the body shop to call me about my car. It should be ready today. My rental car is nice, but I am ready to give it back and get my own car back. I have missed it!

I am also trying to plan our quick before-school-starts vacation. We are going to South Carolina to visit family (my in-laws) but we also want to take a side trip to the beach. Of course, my husband’s family makes it hard to make plans (which is typical for them). We leave on August 8, so I want to get plans finalized.

Catch me up. What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

Thanks to our lovely host, Diana at Part-time Monster! Stop in and have a cup withΒ our other participants at the linkup here.

      1. Very cool and you don’t have to travel! (I was afraid as I asked the question, my extreme geekiness was showing. πŸ™‚ )
        I hope to be in SC during the eclipse. Like thousands others, I guess.

      2. Yes I’m glad we won’t have to travel. I’m excited for it, our town has a four day festival planned (My geekiness is showing too!). I hope you can see it from SC.

  1. No eclipse down here :(. Enjoy this one and try to explain it all to your daughter.
    Beach great if you can get there – back pain yuk, been there done that πŸ™‚

  2. Happy just-past-the-weekend, Amie! It sounds like you had fun birthday plans with your daughter. I hope your car came back! Car problems are always really frustrating. Best of luck planning your trip to South Carolina–it’s always so good to get away, especially before the craziness of school starts. Have a great week! πŸ™‚
