Sometimes it's nice to be left behind

The last long weekend before school starts has left my town feeling a little barren and I'm kind of liking it. Bird (my son) and I went to the market this morning and it had far fewer people than normal so I didn't have to stand in a long line for my melons, berries or bread. We went to a double baptism for a couple of kids in my Primary class and it was very nice. Less cars on the road. We often go camping or to the beach for this weekend but I'm starting to think that staying behind and "holding the fort down" is the way to go. I'm now sitting here reading blogs and surfing the net while hubby plays football on the Wii and the Bird is reading his 1000 things to spot book. Music from my iTunes playing in the background. Long 3 day weekends are the best. I've said if before and I'll say it again. Life is SWEET!!!

We're having a great time "holding down the fort" too. It's been nice to get some errands done and hopefully we'll get some things done around the house tomorrow. We thought about taking a quick trip somewhere, but everywhere we thought of going to, we figured would be packed.

So glad you guys are enjoying your weekend.

We stayed home over the long weekend too. It was nice to just hang with the family. We went out and swam in the back yard then took the kids to Barnes and Noble to pick out a new book to celebrate back to school. All in all, yesterday was a pretty darn good day! :)
