We rarely go out and do things. Now that Large is old enough to babysit, Husband and I have been going out on the bike for an hour or so. He is dead set on finding me a blueberry slushy for some reason (now we have a bet, if you know where one is, don't tell him, please) I digress, we tend not to splurge on ourselves at all. But this weekend Husband felt that the boys and I should go out and do something.
I think he might have seen how depressed I was getting. How isolated I felt. So he suggested I take the boys to the Fall Festival. Large had stayed over with friends, so it was just Medium, Small and I. We hit the rides on Saturday. Neither one of them had ever been on fair rides before. Small discovered he doesn't like heights, and Medium has declared he will never go on another spinning ride alone with me again. With Small on board I took it easy with the spinning. But most of the rides were spin style ones.
Large called in while I was on the Spider (use to be call the octopus) Luckily Small and I were sitting at the top of the ride waiting for them to load more people, I think the high wait freaked him out more than anything else. Large met up with us about 30 minutes later. This gave me a chance to ride faster rides with Medium, while Large took Small and we traded that way for a bit. (and I think by the 5th Titlt-a-whirl ride, the operator and I were dating ha!)
But all in all, Medium and Small had a blast. They told Husband all about it. I wish he could have been with us, but he had to work. Large showed up with an attitude that kind of ruined it for us.
Sunday Husband and I rode into town to check out the bike show. It was rather slow, and the quietest motorcycle show I had ever seen. A few people that knew use from our bike stopped us and asked why our's wasn't in the show, they would have voted for it. Husband is always happy (read smug) to hear that.
We got home and went back to work on the porch/bunker. It's looking pretty cool, can't wait to show you all.
Hope your weekends went well.
