Geekend Update: Jane Austen & More

This weekend came with very little down-time. My house is still a wreck, I did not get in as many workouts as I had hoped, and I still did not go through and organize my paperwork. I have no excuse.

Saturday I spent my day as the family bus driver. After a 20 minute brisk walk with Jasper the big yellow dog, Daryn and I went to Starbucks together and then drove to DC to pick up Zoe. We went to Fairfax Corner to have lunch and paint pottery (which was fun and creative). After that I had to drive all the way to Mount Vernon to pick David up from his new job. We then drove home and cleaned up a bit. After Mia picked up Zoe, I had to go pick up some of David’s skater friends and drop them all off at the local skatepark. I then drove home and by that time it was 7 pm and I was exhausted.

 Saturday night I had my own mini-movie marathon (while Daryn slept). It was Jane Austen night. Since Daryn and I had been watching Pride and Prejudice over and over again over the past 2 weeks, I decided to rent “Mansfield Park”, “Sense and Sensibility”, and “Emma” from Netflix over the weekend. I stayed up all night watching them. It was fun and indulgent, just sitting there doing nothing while enjoying these movies. I think that I liked “Mansfield Park” the best out of all of these.

Sunday was full of chores. Laundry, grocery shopping, helping David with his homework, cleaning out the refrigerator, and then a birthday party at my friendly neighbors house where I stayed longer than originally planned, mainly because it was fun. I got home after dark and then had to prepare for the week. Ugggh. Oh, the good news is that I worked out when I woke up on Sunday – not an incredibly challenging one, but at least it was something. I will blog more about that later.

Such an exciting life. Can you stand it?
