A weekend that didn't revolve around ME

I'm really good at doing what I want, when I want, etc. I have no kids, I try not to neglect my husband, but for the most part, the weekend is MY TIME. I like it that way. I'm selfish with my time because most of the time, I don't have a lot of free time.

This is Jonathan, my nephew. We played with blocks on Saturday. I am GOOD at playing blocks! Jonathan is often neglected by his Aunt Charisa and Uncle Steven because we are good at doing our own selfish stuff on the weekends. Thankfully Steven has an identical twin so Jonathan really thinks Uncle Steven visits him all the time. (Thanks Stanley!)

Sunday My cousin Duane became an Eagle Scout. I'm quite proud. I was in high school when he was born. (I am old). He's turned into a pretty cool guy. Eagle Scout ceremonies are a little longer than I expected. Below is a picture of my Dad, Steven and I during the ceremony. Steven and I are good at passing the time during long ceremonies. This picture might also sometimes describe exactly what we're doing in church, at a graduation, etc. Thankfully there was no point in the ceremony where we started giggling uncontrollably - although Steven had a close call. (Think 5 years old in church or some awful "serious" ceremony where you start laughing and can't stop).

OMG I *so* hear you! I am sans kids and mostly do what I want on weekends too. Then yesterday we were in church for nearly 3 hours. It was for a good cause but my goodness, so glad I don't do *that* more often.

too funny!! Something about church and laughing- it just happens!

ENJOY your time... love it, embrace it, soak it up, then when you share it no regrets!

All the best!
