Weekend Update: Family Visits, LuLaRoe, and Taco Night

Happy Monday, all! This weekend went by in a blur. They just never seem long enough!

Friday
Work–>CrossFit–>Rehearsal is my usual Friday night schedule. We were released a bit early, which was excellent, because Ben’s uncle Bill and cousin Justin decided to make an impromtu visit to see Grammy before Justin moves to Colorado in a couple of weeks. I arrived home just before they did, and managed to start a fire in the woodstove by myself for the first time ever! We had a few drinks and chatted for a while, and I went to bed around midnight. They stayed up until the wee hours!

Saturday
I slept in until about 9:30, then got up to find breakfast-making already in full swing. Ben and uncle Bill made bacon, eggs, and home fries, yum!

We were supposed to take Grammy out for lunch, but breakfast ended up being more like lunch, so we went for an afternoon visit instead. We chatted for an hour or so, and then I headed over to my friend Abbie’s house for a LuLaRoe party. I was a good girl and only bought one shirt, even though there were at least five other things I wanted. I wish I’d had more time to chat and hang out, but I needed to head back and pick up Ben for taco night at our friends David and Alex’s house.

I decided to DD for the night, and we carpooled with our friends Merlin and Kat. The food was delicious, and the company was excellent, but we stayed out a bit later than I would have liked. I’m such an old lady┬áthese days. I didn’t get into bed until after 1 am, and I was WIPED.

Sunday
I slept in again after our late night, then got up and did my usual Sunday morning tidy up. I tend to just let everything pile up during the week and then do a big clean on the weekend. Not ideal, but it’s what I can manage right now.

We had 9 to 5 rehearsal at the Flynn today, which is always a treat. It’s such a beautiful theatre, it makes me feel like a star every time I get to be on that stage. We did a full run through of the show, and it has really come together over the last week or so. It’s very exciting to be at this point and still have so much time to work and polish stuff before we open on the 6th!

Looking out into that audience is one of my favorite views in the world

I’m starting the week off a bit behind the eight ball because I neglected to do any meal prep this weekend. I’m hoping that I can make it through Monday and Tuesday, and then do some cooking tomorrow night for the rest of the week.

Do you like to stay up late, or are you like me, and go to bed early?

Tomorrow is going to be a jam-packed day! First up, cookie baking with Jaska, Penelope, Sabrina Joy, and Linzy. Jaska, Sabrina Joy and I used to have an annual cookie-baking date, but it’s been THREE YEARS since we last did it. Far, far too long! This will most likely be an all day thing, and will yield lots of tasty results. Then, it’s my friend Maria’s LulaRoe launch party, and then my friend Ian’s birthday celebration. It will likely be a long day, but a good one, too.

Ben’s hand seems to be healing fine. Thank you all for your concern this week. As far as hitting one’s finger with an axe goes, Ben’s situation was ideal. No nerve damage, no tendon damage, and thankfully so far, no infection. It was a deep cut, but because we got nearly immediate attention, he’ll right as rain very soon.

My in-laws are home from the Bahamas. They’d been gone for over a week, and while it was fun for Ben and me to have the house to ourselves, we also had to take care of all the animals by ourselves, which was kind of a pain. Now, we’re back to our normal morning and evening routine. Speaking of the Bahamas…

One month from today, we will be in Eleuthera. I honestly could not possibly be more excited. With everything that’s been going on lately, I need a nice long break. I need sun, sand, and ocean. I need staying up late and sleeping late, sunsets over the water, reading all day, and eating and drinking whatever I want, whenever I want. I have a countdown on my phone, and I look at it every day. Cannot. Wait.

Do you have any fun vacations or trips coming up? Tell me all about it!
