Weekend Ramblings

This past weekend was pretty busy, but rejuvenating. I dropped the kidlets off at their dad's on Saturday night and met up with a couple of my best girl friends at Starbucks. We people watched, drank coffee, talked and laughed. Good times :) 
I drove home excitedly afterwards knowing I had a completely empty house waiting for me. It was divine I'm telling you. DIVINE. I blared music, had a long bubble bath, read magazines and then passed out under a mountain of blankets. I lingered in bed as long as I could the next morning and just smiled. I did yoga and spoiled myself all day. No housework was allowed :) 
Later that evening, I drove back into the city to catch Elliott Brood play at The Exchange. As expected, it was an amazing show. I kind of zoned out though and forgot to take pictures unfortunately. Thankfully my cousin snapped a good one for me :) 
It was back to reality on Monday though. This housework business is never ending. I've got this whole 'one step forward, two steps back' thing going on with the laundry - with everything actually. It's enough to drive a person insane if too much time is spent trying to figure out how to solve it. So I just try not to think about it anymore :)  
Orders are picking up in my Etsy shop so that's been keeping me busy in the evenings. I throw a pot of coffee on while I'm feeding the kids and then I chug it until they go to bed. That gives me enough of a boost to make it to midnight usually. 
I have this weird urge to put the Christmas tree up already. Last year I waited until the last possible minute to do it. I just was NOT feeling the vibe. I remember thinking about how nice it would be to just skip past it entirely. Not sure what's different this year. Maybe because we're more settled now, things are calmer and I've found my groove. It will be my second Christmas on my own with the kids so I kind of know what to expect now. I've got it all handled :)
Speaking of being a single mom, everywhere I turn lately I'm bumping into more and more women (and men) who are taking control of their lives and leaving dead end relationships. There just comes a point when you realize 'enough is enough'. Life is TOO short to stay in a situation where you're not happy. Amazing things can happen when you step a little bit out of your comfort zone. This I know for sure :)
