An Unexpected Weekend Of Freedom

We had an unexpectedly free weekend without Jack. It involved a lot of lazing around since I got two migraines (ugh!), but it was still pretty relaxing to get a break from medication struggles for a couple of days. Usually our weekends without Jack are filled with social stuff. We did a bit of that, but since it was last minute most people had plans already. David and I took the opportunity to spend some quality time together, watch a movie, and even go out for breakfast on Saturday. It was divine!

On Sunday I spent a glorious two hours at Target all by myself! There are a lot of little things we needed and I like to save ’em up because everyone knows you can’t get out of Target without spending at least $100. I browsed to my heart’s content since I had nowhere to be. I bought the laundry sorting hamper I’d been wanting – it has three compartments and each one can be removed and carried (downstairs) to our washing machine. My floor looks so much nicer now (that I can see it)! Time saver, too!

I was also able to grab some Halloween decorations from the dollar bin and some items to make packing Jack’s lunches easier – an insulated lunch bag, some small Gladware containers, and an ice pack. The lunch bag had a place for me to write Jack’s name, which I really appreciate. That kid loses everything!! Today I got an email from Mabel’s Labels and realized I need to order some of those for school, too (IF ONLY they sold them at Target!). And since Jack likes all things creepy, Halloween sales are perfect! Check it out:

It may be happening slowly, but we are indeed getting back to a routine and finding our way again. Now if only there was a product I could buy that made getting homework done easier…I’d pay a fortune for that!
