welcome to finland ; weekend recap

jimmy buffett was in town this weekend! my parrot heads parents & friends were attending the concert. i didn't have a babysitter jeremiah was working so the plan was never for me to go to the concert[i have seen him perform before], but for weeks the plans were to go tailgate & hangout with everyone all day. i was supposed to take jer to work at noon & head straight to the ford 1-800 ask gary amphitheater for a day of fun in the sun. it was no surprise to anybody saturday morning when i said we probably wouldnt be making it. colton had been sick all week. not just me but the kids were all functioning on roughly three hours of sleep. i didn't even know if we were going to end up with a rental car that day. it was just crazy! after jeremiah got the rental & left for work i was just sitting here with the kids[who were acting insane-i blame the lack of sleep] i was stressed & excuse my language ... pissed! all i wanted to was cry, but was trying so hard not to. finally i just said what the heck. i text my bestie & she was on her way to me & the kids. i was in such a foul mood i just needed to get out of this house, interact with some people get my mind off of it ... & yes once i got there i even had a beer. how was the jimmy buffett experience?! all i can really say is WHOA!!

we ended up spending the entire day out & we all ended up having a good time. there were lots of laughs. we walked around & looked at all the set-ups people had made. we grilled & ate lots of food. we blew bubbles & played games. all in all i think it was just what the doctor ordered! a break from reality & mini vaca to finland!

[happy jimmy buffett day- it's 5 o clock somewhere!]

yesterday was sunday but sadly this week was not family sunday funday. jeremiah had to work all day[actually ended up getting home 2+ hours late] so the kids & i just hung out around the house all day. colton still isn't 100% on the mend & he seemed to have passed his little germies onto me. i blame the constant rubbing of his nose on my shirt, eww. i was pretty excited when i turned on the tv & on the starz the guide said toy story, toy story 2 & toy story 3 YES! there was a toy story takeover on the tv & it was awesome! i dvr'd them so we have them forever! & we watched them pretty much all day. the kids didn't really want to do much else which was okay with me since i was kinda feeling like i got ran over by a semi. i also spent part of the day cleaning up the house. again with all the chaos of the weekend not much had really been done... except the kids tearing through it. i was moving at the pace of a snail but i am happy i got it done because now there are only a few things left to do today.

it's monday & usually most people complain about that, i on the other hand am thrilled. it might be a monday but its our friday! i just plan on hanging with the baby loves & finishing up things around the house today. tonight jer is off at 5 & it's going to be pizza & movie night. then tomorrow i think we are headed out car shopping. we've got to get a feel of whats out there because once the insurance company settles we arent going to have much time before we have to give the rental back.

happy monday!
