The Short Long Weekend

For a four-day weekend, it sure went by quickly. My Sweetie took Friday off and we did MOW together, had lunch, ran home for a little bit and then drove across town to visit my FIL in rehab (from breaking his hip in case you forgot). Then we headed over to My Sweetie's mom's house to visit with her and his aunt and uncle who were here from Michigan. We were having a great time but had to leave at 11:00 because I didn't have a crazy pill with me.
While we were visiting we asked them to come by the house on Sunday before their flight back as we live right by the airport, so I spent Saturday cleaning the house. Then we ate out, and got flowers to replace the dead ones outside as well as hitting the grocery store.
On Sunday I made a veggie tray with homemade ranch and a fruit platter with whipped cream. We had a fun visit and got to sit outdoors because the weather was so lovely. And every morsel of food was eaten. I don't even know how everything got eaten because it seemed like we were all outside all afternoon. A little while after aunt and uncle left for the airport, My Sweetie took his mother home and then grabbed some barbecue on the way home.
On Monday I pretty much napped all day off and on. I finally showered and we went out to eat and hit the grocery store again. Now he's in bed and the long weekend is over. But what was really cool was I never cooked. I don't think I've gone 4 days without cooking dinner unless I was out of town or recovering from surgery. It was really nice. Now I realize I have a very positive thing to look forward to on the long wedding weekend. No cooking. Or at least not very much. Sounds like a plan.

Well except for all the house cleaning on Saturday it was a great weekend. The not cooking part was wonderful.
