Weekend recap but a day late

I would have had this up yesterday but I just couldn't go any more.

I am exhausted. And here's the weekend recap to explain why.

Friday night, R1 went to the football game with some friends and I took R2 to get his Halloween costume. Then took him to pick out pumpkins, 5 of them. Then we went to eat dinner.

Saturday, R2 and I made the birthday party circuit, starting at 10:30AM. I know, seriously, who throws a birthday party at 10:30AM on a Saturday. I guess it didn't matter, the kids had fun. Then another party at 12:30.

I was so tired I had to come home and rest up before going to HEB.

Speaking of HEB. Like how I just led you right into my next exhausting thing I did over the weekend.

A normal grocery trip takes me about an hour and a half. But oh no not Saturday. HEB has decided it was time to remodel. It's actually a great marketing technique on their part, but the store has only been there for about three years. But they moved everything around and relocated it to a different isle or section of the store.

Normally the Gatorade is with the coffee, tea, and other powdered drink mixes, now it's on the coke isle. Which makes total sense. All drinks together. The cereal is normally on the isle with the candy. Not any more, it's with the juice. And the rice has always been with canned goods, you got it, moved to an end isle until they can figure out where it goes. And the detergent is now where the toys used to be.

So two hours and twenty minutes later and about $250.00 poorer I headed out of HEB with my cart over flowing with several impulse buys because I had no idea the store even had some of the stuff that found it's way into my cart. See what I mean, great marketing technique.

Then Sunday, we got up and went to Sunday School, but we couldn't stay for church because R1 had his end of the season tournament.

Fall Ball is over. I know I will be going through baseball withdrawals in about two weeks time.

When I say we were at the ball park all day Sunday, I mean ALL DAY. We got there at noon and didn't leave until 6:30PM. It was exhausting.

But R1's team came in second place for his division. So proud of him. He made an awesome catch during the first the game. I just sat straight up in my seat staring at him saying oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, over and over.

It was quite humorous. Another mother just laughed at me. And I told her she was just as bad when her son plays short stop and the ball goes right to him. She said that was why is was laughing at me because she was glad she wasn't the only one.

So we got home late, ate dinner, did some laundry, and got things ready for Monday.

OK, I'm exhausted again from just typing it out.

Y'all have a great day, I'm off to take a nap.

I'm exhausted reading about your weekend!! I hate when stores think they need to remodel, and you can't find anything! Ugh! I know you'll be missing baseball soon, but Spring will be here before you know it!

you typically spend 1 1/2 hours in the grocery store?? that's insane. and almost double that is even worse. hopefully you'll get the layout figured out and get back to your routine

My super target reorganized and I hate it. After 5 years of everything being in the same spot I knew my list by the aisles now I am all mixed up and always forget something.
