Back to Monday already! Where did the weekend go?
Saturday was spent with a soccer game and a football game. Afterwards, the little guy and I ventured on a grocery shopping trip-somehow I actually totaled out under budget. We then went and purchased cornstalks to decorate outside for the beginning of the fall season. Somehow between all the running around and games, we both ended up taking a nap...like a two hour nap!!!
After going to church on Sunday we went by granny and gramps. The rest of the day was spent with me doing some yard work-this time cutting hedges-as well as a grandson being spoiled! Ending our day with a dinner prepared by gramps-shrimp scampi, weight watchers style.
I have to say I have been enjoying doing the yard work for my dad the last five weeks. As a parent we know how we want to provide/take care of our own children, however as an adult child I can not express the satisfaction I get by taking care of my parents. Granted, it is harder now as a single parent, but the emotion that I have felt knowing that I am giving back to them has simply been overwhelming.
