Good gosh, is it Monday already? Ugh. I could definitely use another day to the weekend!

I had a long, long Saturday. I was doing more volunteer work for the police department, at the annual Just Play event from 9:30 am till 4:00 pm. I normally love working this, being outside all day, joking around with the kids who come up, free food, entertainment, etc.

Except this year it was absolutely miserable. It was really cold, very windy and for the first three and a half hours it just poured down rain. Thank goodness we were sharing a tent with the fire department this year so we didn’t get too wet. But we stood around and did nothing but get cold since no one was outside. I could barely feel my fingers to eat lunch from one of the food trucks!

The rain finally let up around 1:00 pm and while it was still quite cool out and the sun never did come out, people started arriving by the droves. I was insanely busy for the next three hours, getting about 100 kids in and out of the squad car, along with my other two volunteer friends. I ended up having a pretty good time! At the very end of the day I had my friend snap a pic of me….



By the time I got home I was utterly wiped out from being cold for 8 hours and then all the work with the kids. I think I was in bed by 9:00 pm!

I was an absolute slug on Sunday, barely mustering up enough energy to get out of my pajamas. :-) I watched TV, read a book, played on the computer. I definitely needed one day of downtime. I had an insanely busy week at work, then the volunteer event and I have another really busy three days ahead of me this week. Ugh. Really not looking forward to it.

So how was YOUR weekend?
