Three Day Weekend

Mr. Sandwich and I each have jobs that give us Veterans Day off, and Baguette’s day care is closed on Veterans Day, so we had a three-day weekend. One day per family member! Except Wicket. No extra day for Wicket. She’d just sleep through it, anyhow.

So what did we do with this glorious time?

We ran a lot of errands. Mr. Sandwich went on a bike ride. I took Baguette to her swim class, and we met Bestie and Family for lunch at McDonald’s (Hey, Mickey D’s, why no more Chicken Selects? They were the only thing I was really willing to eat there.). Wicket went to the groomer. I made two batches of chicken stock in the crock pot, as well as two loaves of pumpkin bread, minus the pumpkin (an oversight, but not a fatal one, it turns out).

Oh, and there was this.

Blood drive for Hurricane Sandy relief

Good luck, New Jersey. I wish there were more I could do.

Three Day Weekend — 5 Comments

  1. Lucky you had a long weekend! I still had to work, but my husband had the day off so he and the little guy had a nice time out and about. The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out with visiting relatives. I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving weekend… 4 days!!

    • Honestly, every year this holiday takes me by surprise. I haven’t worked anywhere else that gives employees Veterans Day as a holiday, and even after several years, I find myself saying, “Oh, right–Veterans Day!” Usually we get the actual day, unless it falls on a weekend as it did this year.

  2. Good for you for using your day off to do something so selfless. It seems the perfect way to honors Veterans Day, now that I think of it.

    I’ve never donated blood. [Hangs head in shame.]
