How I Spent My Weekend Alone

I got so much accomplished and yet there is so much more to do.

My plans for cooking fish got derailed a little simply because the store didn't have any mahi mahi. But I was not to be swayed from my seafood adventure. So I just bought a package of prepared honey chipotle salmon that was super delicious. There were two pieces and I liked it to much I ate both of them instead of saving one for the next day. Oh well. Then I made a batch of brownies for dessert.

Saturday I started my day with a workout. I went to the mall (which I avoid like the plague) and bought a few things. Then I hit Academy to return some of the camping stuff Dan didn't want and then of course I went to Kohl's because I had a coupon. I ended up doing well there and got some Kohl's cash to use next week. I even went to the casino to practice for my Las Vegas trip in October. I played penny slots and came out $14 ahead. I figured that was a victory. I ended the evening ironing a huge stack of clothes. Because if I didn't iron I would have had just a few clothes to wear this week. It is amazing how all my summer clothes need to be ironed but none of my winter clothes.

Sunday I volunteered at church for two services. We are really hurting for usher volunteers and the attendance is skyrocketing. We have a new volunteer coordinator so hopefully we can get more ushers. The last two weeks I haven't even been able to hear the message because I've spent all my time taking care of others. I've heard they have been very good so I guess I'll need to catch up with them on youtube. I tried out my new grill pan and learned that I need to let it heat up for a long time before I start cooking on it. I had a code for a free rental from Redbox so I got a movie that I knew Dan would never watch...Rock of Ages. It was horrible but I sang along with all the 80's rock music. Of course I knew all the words. I can see where a whole audience would sing along.

I got Whitney's room all cleaned and dusted. So it looks presentable again. My next project is to deep clean the bathrooms. I'm hoping to get that done before Dan gets home.


  1. Sounds like a great weekend. I went to Kohl's too for a little back to school shopping :-) And I totally would have eaten both pieces of salmon!

  2. You had a busy weekend! It seems like the weekends I'm on my own (even if it's just for 1 day) I get an awful lot done.
