Our week and weekend were very full of scheduling, meetings and social engagements for the boy.
We are in crunch time before the fall semester officially starts.
So it was a lot of splurging on coffee and sitting outside in the mornings, while the boy was at morning summer school, scheduling and organizing appointments. Making endless phone calls to schools and help groups.
The weather has been unseasonably cool and we took advantage it.
No more fancy salon to do my hair, I do it now for less than $2.
and so on, no eating out, no frivolous shopping.
But this weekend we decided we needed a break and after the world of Autism support in this town being a let down...we picked ourselves up and treated "us" to a day of coffee, and toy stores, fabric shops, movies and fun.
We ended the night by watching MUD, oh man I loved this movie.
Such a great story and really well done. I highly recommend it.
Today I will find time to make a few things. I have 2 fairs coming up and haven't even begun to make things. yikes!
It felt good to run away from our lives for a day, even if it was so simple as fancy coffees, fabric and toys. It was just what we needed to regroup and get the strength to start our fight again on Monday morning.
