Happy President's Day

What a great weekend here in the 'T'.

TPW and I took Friday and Monday off to make this a relaxed, four-day weekend with the kids. And a relaxed weekend it has been.

For the first time in a while, we didn't have any weekend activities. Oh, don't get me wrong, I love coaching my son's soccer team and helping my daughter sell Girl Scout cookies (Samoas, FTW). But, it is really nice to just lay around, drink coffee and play family games all weekend.

Yesterday was so nice that we spent the majority of the afternoon outside. The Boy and I played basketball -- and he insisted on a t-shirt and shorts. Maybe a little too much gusto on his part, as I was still chilled in my sweatshirt and sweatpants -- but hey, he's an eight-year-old. I've got to let him LIVE.

So, this morning I'm blogging this from my iPhone, while drinking my coffee and watching Morning Joe -- Best. Monday. Morning. Ever. I do enjoy my work, but it is so very nice to have a small "stay-cation" to unplug and be with my family.

More tomorrow, because there is a LOT to talk about. Until then, enjoy your Monday.
