Everybody's Workin' For The Weekend.....

It was a long week despite the fact that Labor Day gave us the gift of a 4 day work week. It's always so hard coming off a great vacation and leaving all that precious relaxing (and food and drink) behind.

This week brought us back to school, back to work and back to normal everyday life (or at least what passes for "normal" around here). Judo resumed its old 3 day a week schedule, soccer practice/games are also 3 days a week, ballroom dancing lessons (which I lovingly refer to as "Dancing With The Stars" to inspire compliance from a certain macho 9 year old) are about to start along with CCD, monthly orthodontist appointments, daycare for the baby 3 days a week, and the onslaught of a slew of Fall party invitations and events that seem to line up like dominoes.

That's why the weekends mean so much to us. This weekend we'll have John's mom visiting overnight. The kids love having abuela over. It's a little difficult for me though because she doesn't speak a word of English and I don't speak a word of Spanish. We do get by with lots of charade-like antics to get our respective points across though. It's been working so far and, of course, I count the the extra activity as points for exercise.
