Our weekend was a fairly good one, despite my ongoing recovery from getting both my knees scoped two weeks ago and having a torn meniscus repaired in both as well. (I'm still of the mindset that getting both knees done at once is easier than one at a time and drawing the whole process out. Though being hobbled and laid up with two bum knees is frustrating, to say the least.) Each knee has three small incisions where the scopes went in, so the stitches are minimal and I'm hoping the scars are, too. I've been keeping Vitamin E oil and coconut oil on them to reduce redness and help with healing.
The husband and I decided the kids needed to get out of the house Saturday so we loaded them up in the 'burb and headed to his parent's house for an afternoon outing. The kids enjoyed it very much and Grandmommy made them snow cones to enjoy in the yard, while they ran around and played and got rosy red cheeks. Then we cooled off inside, ate tons of pizza for dinner, took baths in the tub and headed home for a late bedtime. Everyone passed out promptly, which makes for a happy (though worn out) momma and daddy!
I wasn't feeling very well Sunday morning and my knees were hurting pretty good, so we moseyed around the house and spent time with the kids then fed them lunch and put them down for rock solid naps. Loving the quiet house, we both hit the couch and made it through two episodes of the first season of House of Cards. I'm not usually one for political-based shows, but this one has us both intrigued! Afterward, I ran to Carter's and took advantage of their Labor Day sale, 25% off clearance prices and 50% off the entire store plus a coupon for 25% off my total purchase (nearly everything I got is pictured below, except the four pairs of sunglasses!). Harrison is mostly set right now so all he got was a cool camo dinosaur t-shirt, while the girls needed some pants, tops and PJs. I seriously LOVE shopping Carter's! So glad their clothes go up to 7T, so hopefully I can shop there for many more years. ;)
Happy Hump Day!
