tell me something good...

so this past weekend paul's family came up for a quick visit to our lovely Cape Ann.
his mom, Gramma, sister Beth, nephews Ricky & Aidan arrived around 12:30 on Saturday and were here until just about 12:30 on Sunday. while they were here we went on a harbor tour, went to the mall (ick), ate at legal seafoods, had dessert at their motel room, had them all to our house for a yummy waffle breakfast and then they all went to the beach. i didn't go to the beach. i pretty much hate the beach. so i stayed home and cleaned up after breakfast. they came back to the house briefly after the beach to have a snack and then went home to CT.

sunday afternoon paul and i had good quality time with each other. we played mario kart for quite a while and then we made peanut butter cookies together. it was really nice. oh - and it really helped my mood that the temperature sunday was at LEAST ten degrees cooler than saturday. so happy about that.

sunday night we got some hanging out time with chuck & hannah - it had been a whole week since we'd seen them which is highly unusual for us. it was a good time. they made a great dinner with recipes from a WW cookbook and we brought over some of our cookies to share with them.

after we got back from their place paul started being sneezy and said his throat was sore. :(

yesterday paul took a sick day and tried to nip this cold in the bud (is that really the saying? nip it in the bud? what the heck does that mean?) and i tried to help, but this morning he didn't feel any better so he was home again today. i don't think he's feeling much better now so he may be home again tomorrow.

i got up fairly early this morning and did a couple loads of laundry across the street right away because i thought it was supposed to get hot again today. then i washed some dishes (a lot more dishes when there are people in the house during the day), and did some general tidying. i worked on some knitting for a bit but hannah called around 10:30 and asked if i could come over and hang out with penelope so she could get some emergency house cleaning done (her brother is in town unexpectedly) so i got to play with penelope for a couple hours which was really quite fun. since i don't babysit her regularly anymore i don't get a whole lot of time with her and i miss it. she's such a beautiful and smart and fun baby. i got home around 1ish and made myself lunch and then my energy level just DROPPED. i didn't really feel like doing anything at all until around 5ish. i've since done some more knitting, more dishes, ate dinner. but i don't feel like, at this end of my day off, that i've got a whole lot to show for myself besides trying to take care of hub. i hate it when productivity is invisible. oh well. maybe thursday will be different.
