*Sigh* Remember when we worked a 35-hour workweek? Then a 40-hour workweek? Now it seems that we come into the office earlier and earlier and leave later and later. Not that I’m complaining—because to tell you the truth, I really really like my job.
The workday flies by so fast.
And so, does the week. That’s why I wish we had a permanent three-day weekend.
My weekend attire. I want to look like the hipster mom!!!
I always get like this whenever the kids visit for the weekend. I love when they are home. But I get really sad when they leave.
It’s that empty “Sunday” feeling. Do you know what I’m talking about? Remember when you were in school and as soon as late afternoon on Sundays arrived, you got “that feeling”. It’s an empty feeling with a touch of stress and dread. You just feel bad.
It’s that Sunday Feeling.
That’s the feeling I get when the kids leave.
It’s true. This is me when the kids leave!
But when they arrive I’m happy as a raccoon in a dumpster!
Yes! I’m as happy as this little critter in all his garbage glory when my kids come home!
We had a great weekend.
Bonaparte and I started the weekend with a toast to Obamacare sticking around!
Tchin Tchin! A toast to the weekend! It was too cold outside so we had our kir royals indoors!
The boys arrived early Saturday afternoon—which was great because we had plenty of time to catch up with each other.
No matter how old they are, they will always be my little boys! (Let’s hope they never see this post or that I’m calling them “my little boys”!)
And… they told me about a great new show on Comedy Central. “The Detroiters” about the worst ad agency in Detroit. The show is hysterically funny and we watched a couple of episodes before getting ready for dinner…
If you get the chance to catch this show, by all means do. It’s laugh-out-loud funny!
And what a dinner it was!
We had dinner at a la Maison in Ardmore, PA.
We started off with what was THE best Charcuterie Board of all time. The cheeses. The pates. The saucisson. The mustards and jellies. The bread..
Jake ordered the Boulliabaisse which was fantastic!
Roman ordered the best dish of the night-as you can see he took the photo after he ate most of it. Roasted Pheasant!
I had duck breast in cherry sauce over a bed of roasted asparagus. It was devine!
Bonaparte ordered what he usually orders in any French restaurant. Steak Frites. And he said it was great!
Chocolate pot du creme and bread pudding for dessert was a sweet end to an excellent dinner!
a la Maison in Ardmore just may be our new favorite restaurant! I can’t wait to get back!
Sunday was a productive day. One of my neighbors is moving and was giving away a beautiful antique oak dresser. It was old and heavy and in great shape. One of the drawer knobs was broken but I remedied it by replacing all of the knobs.
Isn’t this oak dresser beautiful? My sweaters have a home now. And the entire cost was $27.00 for the knobs. Honestly, if the boys were not here to help, I would never have this beauty!
It was a tremendous help to have the boys move the dresser down three flights of my neighbor’s stairs and three flights up mine!
The bread I made was perfect for sandwiches. I loaded them up with a supply and with a supply of corn cookies. I’ll make more for next weekend!
Good things always come to an end. Before they left, I made sandwiches for them on homemade bread. It’s just such a pleasure to be mom!
One last look at the boys before they board the Bolt Bus in Philly and go back home to NYC!
And on Sunday afternoon, it was time to bid farewell to the boys until the next time.
Until next time! Remember, Mommy loves and misses you!
I was really sad at work today. Then I realized that..
Oona will be flying in on Friday!!! And we will be picking her up late Friday evening. It’ll be another fun weekend!
Yay! Can’t wait to see my little baby girl Friday night!!
But I still think we should have three-day weekends instead of two days. But then I would have that Sunday feeling on Monday!
Do you love the weekend as much as I do? Fridays make me think of this song by Loverboy…
