It's already June 1?

Today was a productive day.  After church, we did some errands, grabbed lunch and were home by 3:00.  Peter got a haircut, I picked up Ashley's contacts, we returned things at JCP, and purchased superglue and a new adapter for one of our kitchen outlets.  We recently bought a new piece of furniture from Craigslist to hold our microwave, toaster oven, etc etc.  I was going to sand and paint it to  match all of the kitchen cupboards I painted last September, but got too busy so it will have to wait til next weekend.  We did manage to get some yard work done today though.  It was mid 70's and sunny so much nicer for doing such things.  Peter cut the grass and weed wacked and I did some weeding and digging in front for our landscape we're working on.  I think by next weekend I'll be ready to put some more plants in which I'm super excited about.  I know, nerdy, but I am.  We cleaned up, showered and were relaxing by 7 which was nice.  We ate leftovers for dinner because we've had so many yummy dinners this week all yielding leftovers since I cook more than what is needed for 2 since we take the dinners for lunches the next day, etc.  We've had Balsamic Chicken Pasta w/Broccoli and Portobello Mushrooms which I totally made up one day a few years ago and its delicious, also a chicken salad recipe I got from my mom that we had on toasted whole grain bagels (yum), Chicken Lo Mein which I totally made up as I went along and it was great (lots of yummy veggies in it too!) and Steak with Corn on the Cob and a salad.  We both chose the Chicken Pasta tonight as we watched some more of "The Office".  We're total addicts.  We've made it to season 4 which we watch online at nbc and I'm super excited Jim and Pam are dating.  Again, nerdy, but that's the kind of girl I am. :)

Peter and I both have a 4 day weekend next weekend which we're really excited about.  Plans?  None.  Well, that's not true.  We have a bunch of little ideas and things we want to do like explore Carnegie Library and part of Pittsburgh, paint that piece of furniture, do some misc. housework, etc.  Just a great 4 day weekend.  I have time to use before June 30 and have a big audit and things at work so that was the last I could use them with a weekend to make a 4 day weekend.   I'm glad that we'll have 4 days at home to do whatever we want.  Weekends go so fast and anytime we have an extra day off to use with weekends, we're always visiting family because we don't get to see them too often.  It's a lot of fun, but it means things at home don't get done and it's also tiring sometimes.  We just went to Berwick and Philly last weekend and are driving to VA/DC at the end of June so we didn't want to have to drive anywhere this weekend.  Lazy?  Maybe :P   Now I just have to make it through the next 5 days of work.  Then it's 4 days off, 3 days of work and another 2 days off haha.  I know it'll come and go before I know it though.  Ah, the realities of life :P haha
