This past weekend John was away on business, and I was EXHAUSTED after a long week of work, taking care of the house, taking care of the kids - and all while sick. It was kind of chilly out, and we were having some work done on the trees that were damaged by this winter's many, many storms, so yard play wasn't too much of an option - though of course watching the tree guy work was quite entertaining, even if it was from the kitchen instead of the yard. We stayed close to home for the most part - though Bess and I did go to the New Jersey Ballet's performace of Sleeping Beauty at the The Community Theater in Morristown on Sunday, which was lovely. They occasionally do matinees for kids and families, which are abbreviated, narrated versions of the original ballet, and which are always done really well and just long enough. Mostly we just hung out, made sock puppets,
and did some neighborhood scavenger hunting.
All in all, not a bad weekend!
