Growing pains update: It still surprises me how fast the weekend goes by. Two days just isn’t enough time to fully relax and recuperate from the previous week.
This past week some things got done, and others didn’t. I did attend the two DSM events that I wanted to – the I-Cubs game and the Des Moines Art Festival. Both were a success. I also made a quick trip over to Omaha with my dad yesterday to check out a few different Volvos at the dealership. After the trip it is decided that I am looking for a used S80 instead of an S60, so the jaunt was a success as well.
Success was NOT had today in our hopes to go fishing. Since there has been flooding it was virtually impossible to put the boat in on the river. It was a bummer because I was really looking forward to some one on one time with the hubby since he’s been traveling for work so much lately. But we did get to enjoy a stroll through the sculpture park to check out some art this morning as well as lunch at Mullet’s. If you go, try the sweet potato tots! De-lish.
With the upcoming three-day weekend at the end of the tunnel, I am really looking forward to the long weekend that is on the horizon. We plan on attending Yankee Doodle Pops on Friday to kick off the festivities, followed by the Urbandale 4th of July parade and more fireworks!
I’m also hoping to try out something for the first time – hot yoga! I got a great deal on a 10-class card for Breathe Studio out in Waukee. My co-worker has been raving about it and I finally bit the bullet and decided to give it a try. I’ve got to remember to drink more water this week in preparation!
Oh, and I reeallllllyyy need to get going on those thank you notes this week.
