Weekend Update – Lazy Long Weekend

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope some of you got a long weekend like I did. It was just what I needed. In short, it was a lazy weekend. In long…

After work, I headed to the house we were watching and Ben was already back as well. We hung out for a bit and had supper, then he took off to broom ball while I stayed home and watched movies with Shadow the dog. We all headed to bed when Ben got home around 10:30.


Saturday was a loooong, laaaazy day. Since Erik’s house is in the middle of construction and kind of in the middle of nowhere, there’s not a lot to do besides watch movies. So that’s what we did pretty much all day. And it was glorious.

Around 5, we rousted ourselves to drive out to Jeffersonville to have supper with Nick and Nikki. The roads weren’t that great, and there was even some flooding in places, but we made it out there safe and sound.

We had a delicious meal of pork chops, asparagus, salad, and biscuits, and then spent the rest of the evening playing with their adorable son Kalamack, and chatting. We had hoped to play some games, but with a seven month old in the mix, it just wasn’t in the cards. We headed back to Williston around 10 and crashed hard.


We got up relatively early and proceeded to watch another movie while cleaning up after ourselves at Erik’s. We headed for home around 1:30 and spent the rest of the afternoon at home settling back in, unpacking, and in Ben’s case, bracing for the start of another work week.

Our kitties were very happy to see us, and we were just as happy to see them and sleep in our own bed.


I had hoped to sleep in, but my eyes popped open at 8 am and that was that. I got up, made myself breakfast, and then proceeded to have another pretty lazy day. I did a lot of reading, updated my planner, journaled, and generally loafed around.

The only semi-productive thing I did all days was venture into town to look in on our friends Jaska and Penelope’s chickens. Penelope was home alone with the flu, so I fed and watered their chickens so she wouldn’t have to trudge out in the cold and snow.

When I got home, I started defrosting some chicken thighs and continued reading until it was time to actually cook supper. I made a pretty decent chicken curry, if I do say so myself. Then Ben was off to his first soccer game of the season (he just joined a league), and I spent some quality time planning my packing and to-do list for Broadway Con next week. I can’t believe it’s almost time!

So now it’s Tuesday, and a short week to boot. Not only did I have the holiday yesterday, but I’m taking Thursday off because (theoretically) we’re CLOSING ON THE HOUSE! I say theoretically because we’re still not 100% certain it’s going to happen on Thursday, but regardless, I’m taking the day off because my friend Krissy is in town from San Francisco. We’re gonna spend a day shopping and hitting all our old haunts downtown, which means I’m only working three days this week. Score!

    Awesome – short week made shorter! 🙂

    Have never actually done full house-sitting – done babysitting and checked on house for neighbors on vacation.

    Hope everything works out with the house for you guys!

      House sitting is great for us right now since we don’t have a house of our own, but that will definitely change once we do. When you’ve got your own house, it doesn’t really make sense to go live in someone else’s!
