It's been non-stop busy-ness on my week off. Monday we did some work on the bathroom and bought our big soaker tub. Then it was off to Xander's soccer game (they won!) and time to prepare for our mini-vacation to Niagara Falls.
Tuesday morning we headed out early to the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Fallsview Waterpark. We were sliding by 11:30 and didn't stop except for a quick lunch until 5. Craig and I were acting just like our kids, though I was starting to feel not-so-much like 10 by dinnertime.
We were out of our room and back at the park before 9:30. Crazy! It was a great time and I highly recommend it for a short vacation; the kids are already planning our next visit. At 3pm our passes expired and we went out to the tacky tourist strip and did some tacky tourist things.
Craig got a geeky wax hand (it's the Vulcan hand thingie)
Then a not-tacky at all Indian Dinner at Guru restaurant.
We were in the car by 9:30 and home by a bit after 11. I was beat (I slept with the kids in the car).
Thursday we had a relaxing do nothing sort of day--lots of Wii and I spun a bit. And there was the excitement of that storm. Nothing major where we were, but all rather scary and weird. Tornadoes aren't supposed to hit big cities.
Friday it was back in the car for a visit to my Father-In-Law's cottage for some swimming and hot tubing and thankfully due to the rain, some loafing. I'm working on some mittens for my knit-pal Ann's charity mitten drive. I knit a pair on the drive up and hope to have another pair before the weekend is over. They still need to be felted. I do like these small quick projects.
Today we drop the kids off at my Mom's for a few days and tonight the plan is to see District 9. Tomorrow I rest. I didn't win the lottery so I'm back to work on Monday.
