What a weekend!

I have had the most beautiful and relaxing weekend.... and the best part is, it's lingering !
Due to some pretty amazing happenings and lots of prayers, I've now managed to get every second Monday off... and it coincides with my "off" weekend! Which gives me 3 lovely days off each and every fortnight!

And do you know what I did with the last 2 days? Nothing ! Woot Woot !! I puttered... I pottered... I read, I slept and did nothing!

Well, except for Saturday morning when my dear Lee Loubelle came by. And Lee Loubelle doesn't just "come by".... she hammers at the door and croaks out my name loud enough to wake the dead and then she hammers some more. So when I went to the door, peeped through the "peep hole in the door thingie" and yelled at her to go away because I was sleeping, she croaked even louder and demanded that I open the door right NOW, because there was an emergency.
So of course I opened the door.

Knowing full well that with Lee Loubelle, a broken bra strap, her daughter being in a foul mood, her little dog Louie peeing on a car tire or missing an episode of The Bold and The Beautiful, ALL constitute "emergencies". (not Louie missing The Bold and The Beautiful... Lee Loubelle herself missing it. And Lee doesn't pee on car tires either.)

So Saturday morning's "emergency" was that she had driven to the Polish Hall where we were supposed to be having a car boot sale (car trunk sale to you Northern Hemispherers) and there was NO ONE THERE ! Well, of course there wasn't Lee... it's pouring down rain and who would be sitting out in the rain, trying to sell gee-gaws and the like in the pouring rain?

Well, there was no help for it. I had to get dressed right now (weekends mean I get to live in my jammies.... sheesh!) and head on over to see if they were open inside the hall... because they might just be selling some polish doughnuts. (insert major eye-roll here) Polish doughnuts... like I need - and my arse needs - home made Polish doughnuts?

So we went.
And we found them...
And we ate.
And I bought 10 extra doughnuts, just in case I got peckish over the weekend.

We came home, had a quick cuppa and then she decided that she had more important things to do at home, and she pissed tottered off.

So I came back in, stripped off my clothes, had a quick shower, put my jammies back on and I did nothing for the next 48 hours. Nada!

No one rang, no one knocked on the door and even the Old Guy made himself scarce so that I could read and "nana nap" to my hearts content!
Heaven... I'm in Heaven...

So today, (geez I'm pretty wordy when it comes to telling you that I did nothing much of anything... aren't I?) I'm still off ! Mostly.

I have the carpet cleaner guy coming by at 10:30 this morning, but the Old Guy did most of the furniture moving last night, while I just sat and ate two five Polish doughnuts, so it's still "kick-back" time around here !!!
I wanted to do this sexy lounging on the couch thing, ala "Queen of Sheba", while he carried the couch into the dining room, but he said he couldn't do that. It must have been the extra weight of the two five doughnuts, do you think?

It's a 3 day weekend... and I'm having the Time of My LIFE !

Sad, eh?

What's a hernia?
The Old Guy said he would have gotten one of them if he tried to move the couch with me on it. That means " happy" doesn't it? He would have been happy if he had moved me and the couch at the same time... is that right?


Paula said...

A hernia is what I went in to get fixed last Jan and came out having to have 8 of them fixed...I know unreal right? But that is my life...unreal.

I live in my pjs too. My goal in life is to take a nap everyday. Like a child, I need my nightie night time about 3pm.

I tried to get a few things done this week end but spring heat has hit and when you are not used to it it wipes you out.

Glad you enjoyed your days off. You will need them again in a few weeks.

Kate, I'm a nurse a hernia ment happy! Just keep thinking that! Hope you enjoyed, I should be a little more relaxed now, our travel volleyball season is over!

Gladys said...

Hey I have an award for you over at my site. Please come over and collect it.

Reddirt Woman said...

Polish donuts? The difference is"? If it is sweet and a cake or pastry I'd be right there munching on it, my "arse" be damned. Unfortunately, I may have said that too many times in the past.

As for extra donuts making the couch to heavy... Tell the Old Guy to rig up some wheels on the couch and then you won't have to worry about whether he gets a hernia or not... I've had two of them fixed and I was happy when it was finished.


Pam said...

What a wonderful rejuvinating weekend!

The Old Dairy said...

Please tell me you got out of the P.Js for the carpet man, and of the couch for that matter.......than again who cares it's your long weekend enjoy it.....

rubiesrnotpurple said...

Ahh Katie - you're living the life I want ... doing as little as possible and taking as long as possible to do it.

Treehouse Chef said...

I call a three day weekend with nothing to do being in the cave. I love it! I am so glad you were able to read and nap. Everyone should do that once in a while. It recharges the batteries.

Kurichan said...

Hey, K--I am not 100% sure but I think our 3 day weekends our going to coincide!!!! :-) K

Becky said...

One of my friends has a hernia ansd I know I don't want one! I'm so glad you are really enjoying your week-end! If anyone deserves it, you sure do!! You are one funny Lady!

Tatersmama said...

Paula, You too? I knew there was a reason I like you so much! We're jammie "sisters"!
The only hernia I've ever had was an umbilical one when I was pregnant... and I swear I looked like John Holmes ( the porn star) with this big wienie thing sticking out. And talk about painful...OMG!
Marilyn, It's been great just doing nothing... and I hope you have the time to kick back and relx now that travel volleyball season is over!
Gladys,... Woo Hoo! Thank you!
Helen, I don't really have a clue. They're more yeasty than cakey and with plum jam in the middle, they're delicious!
Pam, It's been BEAUTIFUL... and it's till goin' ON! yippppeee!
Mandy, I did manage to get dressed, but as soon as he left, I was right back in the pj's! I might even cook tonight and shock the heck out of the Old Guy!
Rubie's, Well hon, you know where I live. C''mon down and we can do nothing together... I'll even help you with your rugrats! No... I take that back... the Old Guy can keep an eye on them while we get pedicures or something!
Treehouse Chef, Yep. I like the sound of that. I'm going to my CAVE so just back off and leave me alone! (hmm...can you take your computer to the cave?) ;-)
Kurichan, YES? OMGoodness, that would be great! We were just talking about you this morning, and *he* said he could tell I was missing ya! And not because of the potential goodies, either! ;-)
We'll have to make plans...please?
Becky, Thanks, hun...but you're making me blush! Or maybe it's just the heat from the heater, 'cause I;m trying to dry these carpets! :-)
(they look lovely!)

Robynn's Ravings said...

You BUST me up!!!! ROFLMBO!

What pictures you paint Tatergirl! You had me in stitches. Maybe I better go see nurse Marilyn to get 'em removed.

I'm SOOO glad you get this free time. How GRAND!

Homestay Mama said...

Well, seems like I'm always bringing up the rear--so by now you're probably back working again. But isn't it nice to be able to look forward to 3-day weekends on a regular basis! How neat is that?!

Bz said...

HA! ....I have this scene perfectly played in my head. ..and peckish?? ..what's 'peckish'... I'll have look it up online. Well glad that you did nothing. There's nothing like doing nothing AND eating doughnuts to reenergize oneself... gees, ESPECIALLY if you deal with kids like you do. All I can say is My hat's off to ya!

Out Back said...

Enjoy the time off Kate, you truly deserve it.

Hernia's are an imaginary something that my hubby has got. Has two in fact and they are to be removed very soon. He said something about lifting heavy stuff.... what a load of rubbish.

My day off today as well and tomorrow I will only have one until 12pm, yay!

Don't do too much now,


Sherri said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend and well deserved you are.

Irene said...

Well done mate about time you got some relax time.
Maybe the rain kept most people away wonderful isn't it?

Nancy M. said...

It definitely means happy, lol!

I am so happy you had a good weekend. You really deserve some "me" time!

Tatersmama said...

Robynn, Speaking of stitches, I honestly feel like my stitches have been unpicked, and my stuffing's oozing out... Woo hoo! It's like unbottoning your pants after a big meal and just laying back to relax. ;-) OMG I'm gonna love doing this on a regular basis!
Sue, See? You didn't bring up the rear! *wink* And I am *so* going to love doing this on a regualr basis!
Bz. Peckish? I thought everyone said peckish...But when I looked it up on-line, it says there are two meanings - and I didn't know that!
To me it's more " I feel a bit peckish, but I don't know what I want to eat". NOT irritated! lol!
Tania, YAY for you and your time off! It's lovely when you can get it, isn't it? Enjoy!
And if you get hernias from lifting heavy stuff, than my Old Guy wss telling fibs, wasn't he?
Although when I put the couch back last night, it took me 30 minutes of puffing and sweating to do it... and I had to keep sitting down! (which is handy when you have the couch to sit on!)
Sherri,, It was LOVELY! I can't wait to do it again... but next time, no tradesman so I can stay in the ol' pj's all day!
Nancy, Well, if "hernia" really means happy, I must be herniated right about now, because I'm as happy as a clam!

Jientje said...

Yaay for an extra day off and a long weekend!!

Marjie said...

I sleep until noon on weekends. Woe betide the person who disturbs me. I actually had a well drilled because the water company insisted on calling me at 9AM on Saturdays to remind me that my bill was due the next week. One time I'd had a particularly bad Friday night, due to a sick child, and told them to plan to get their f****g meter before the next reading, because I was going to have a well drilled next week, since they wouldn't shut up! And it's not like we don't pay our bills....well, I can sure rant, can't I? So I'm really glad for you that you get 3 day weekends every other week, and, truth be told, I'm jealous!

Shelby said...

nice to hear of your relaxing time :)

do more of that! And I should too, of course.

Anita said...

I love your blog,you always make me laugh.Hope you have many more good weekends!!!

Jan Mader said...

Your posts make my day happy...well, it's night now, but you still made me smile!

Tatersmama said...

Jientje, It was lovely... and I'm still dancing on air!
Marjie, Until NOON? You'll have to tell me your tricks, because threatening people (especially Old Guy) doesn't do me one whit of good!
Shelby, Why not? Don't we deserve it?? Everyone always comes first and we always put ourselves last! ;-)
Anita, Well, I guess it's better to be laughed *with* than laughed *at*...LOL! :-)
Jan, Well, I hope I can keep you smiling then. :-)

Katidids said...
