Weekend and a Couple Positive Things

Weekend was pretty uneventful. I was bummed to not make it down to a certain lil' boy's 1 year old party (I still can't believe he's one, it seems like I was just getting news of his birth). Anywho, Mary and I kept going back and forth with whether to go down to Mass for it.

If we were to decide to go down, we need a letter to leave the state with the boys so we left the caseworker a message on Tuesday. Well, she never called back. I love how her v/mail says she'll call back in 24 hours. Ummm, what if it was an actual emergency?

For a moment, we thought we could drive down for the day figuring if we didn't stay over night it wouldn't be that bad *legally speaking*. We decided against it since we were scared of what the boys may be like after a 3 1/2 hour drive and then a party that started close to their nap time.

Doing things with the kids that involve other people is very difficult. If one's behaving, the other's not. There's really never a time when they are both behaving or not in grumpy moods. The times when they're both being bad are "stop me from calling the caseworker" times. Plus they take a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day, if they don't get it close to on time we run into some serious grumpy issues...even if you're at Disney World. NO JOKE!

Anywho, I wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese down in Portland on Sunday but Mary thought it would be too much to do. We did end up doing a "bog walk" on Saturday and trying the new indoor pool at UMaine on Sunday. I feel like we're stuck in a rut of the same annoying playgrounds or the museum so it was nice to do some somewhat different things.

And on a positive note, Mary and I did get to have some fun on Friday. She took the day off and we used pre-school/day care as a babysitter *free - sweet!*. We finally checked out a local winery and then headed to our favorite town on the coast for lunch. It was definitely time for some adult fun :-) I do love the boys (even if I do constantly vent about them on this blog) but kid free time is definitely necessary if me and Mary want to make it to 3 years of marriage ;-)

Oh well, I'm off to watch Big Brother 30 minutes after it's start time and therefore free of commercials. Another positive thing - DVR :-)
