Weekend In Review

This weekend was awesome!


Friday night my Mom and my sister came down to visit us for the weekend. Our house was in need of some cleaning before they arrived and Andy was kind enough to take on the task. I was exhausted! One of the side effects of cortisone is insomnia and well, I was very much an insomniac for a week and a half. I was so tired. I would lay down to sleep and would just lay there and toss and turn. If I did manage to fall asleep, I would sleep for maybe 20 minutes before I would wake back up. In the words of Grumpy Cat, "It was awful!" Friday I just couldn't take it anymore, I cried for a bit and eventually was able to sleep. I slept for maybe an hour, it was a miracle!


I woke up before everyone else (Yay insomnia!) and made breakfast. If I make breakfast, it is usually only on Saturday. Breakfast consisted of my favorite blueberry, cranberry, dark chocolate chip, whole wheat pancakes (they really are the best or so Mom tells me), orange juice, and scrambled eggs.

After breakfast we hit up a few yard sales, grabbed some lunch, and then hit the thrift stores. We scored on our second hand purchases. You would be amazed what you can find at a yard sale or thrift store! I got a new pea coat for a $1.00 and a new American Eagle sweater for $0.25. It was awesome!

That evening we had our Sunday School Class over for a party. The evening consisted of a lot of pizza, ice cream, and video games. It was a little crazy!


Several weeks ago I signed Andy and I up to ride in a hot air balloon. When you sign up, you aren't guaranteed the date you request for your ride. I requested that our flight take place on Saturday and  we ended up being scheduled for Sunday- boo! We woke up at 4:30 in the morning to be on the road at 5:00 to make it to Albany by 6:00 for our flight. It was a really neat experience and deserving of its own post.

When the hot air balloon ride was all said and done, we were tired. 6 hours of sleep and insomnia will do that to a person. When I got home I crawled in bed and proceeded to sleep 15 hours. I think my insomnia is finally starting to go away.
