This weekend was a great weekend. An all around success.
After a tough Friday with close to no sleep and missing a get-together with friends I hardly seen when I’m working, this weekend set a bar for weekends future.
We both got to sleep in, we both got some great time in with the kid and things still got done around the house.
I took the kid to play in the snow at the park, got some exercise, we had a nice dinner out (thanks to Christmas gift cards). The kid got to her soccer and skating classes and is suitably tired out.
We got to watch the all stars skills competition and the game, which my lovely city was hosting, and watch our wonderful captain get the adoration he has earned in his years here.
We got some old clothes, old electronics and old toys out of the house and donated. We got our budget figured out with a new way to go forward that should leave me less stressed overall, using the tools on the lovely Gail Vaz-Oxlade’s website. I’ve been getting my exercise and having some fun with the kid.
I feel as though my mood is picking up, our plans are moving forward, and things are looking up.
It’s a good feeling.
I even successfully trimmed the kid’s bangs:
