We had a lovely long weekend. Derek has been off for a five-day weekend, and it was so nice! We really didn't do anything all that exciting. I did get Friday morning to myself to do some shopping. I went looking for Ella Grace's Easter dress. I had already found Evan's outfit.
On Saturday we cleaned the house, and I got a ton of clothes ironed and marked for a consignment sale this coming weekend. That was a job! It is hard for me to part with anything that the kiddos have worn. I go through them remembering how cute they were in each thing. I keep a couple of mementos, but the rest HAS to go. I still have a few things to finish. Whew! I hope it's worth all the effort! Derek did get to go to his dad's and watch the Jermaine Taylor fight later that night. I think he was pretty bummed that JT didn't win. Oh well. Better luck next time.
Evan has started a gymnastics class on Sunday afternoons. He really enjoys it. It is kind of a one-on-one, mommy/daddy and me kind of class. No need to work out on Sundays. I'm pooped by the time the hour is over! What kid wouldn't love this...
Derek was off today for Presidents' Day. I had the great idea that we should go to the Clinton Library until Derek reminded me that it was free to the public and would be much too crowded. I'm a bit embarrassed that we haven't been there yet. One day we will go, but for today we settled for lunch out and strolling around the mall. Evan had school. :(
Tonight I was able to actually go to an exercise class at our community center. They offer a Zumba class that I have heard is super fun and I haven't been able to go because Derek isn't home from work in time. I loved it! I was lost some of the time, but I didn't care. I was a little surprised though when they got their little skirts out with the shiny metal things on them (I have no idea what it is called) that made noise as we shook our hips. Pretty funny. It was great fun and I hope to go again soon, but I will not take a place in front of the mirror. I don't mind trying to dance, I just don't want to see myself doing it. That sight might be too much for me! Ha!
Hope you all have a fantastic week!
