Ok so the title is a tad dramatic. This was my one & only weekend this month with nothing really going on. And even at that it still wasn't completely free. I suppose technically you could call the weekend following Thanksgiving a free weekend too. Pray for my sanity y'all.
Not only was Friday our final home football game of the regular season, but it was also senior night & one of the local radio stations. 95.9 The Ranch, attended our pep rally because we are one of a few high schools in the area competing for a concert from William Clark Green & a $1000 scholarship for a senior. For being a Friday, which is normally one of my least favorite days at work (weird I know,) it really wasn't a bad day at all. The culinary class prepared a bunch of salad stuff for the teachers to have for lunch as well. I have second lunch & all of the lettuce was gone by then but luckily I had brought my own salad for lunch & just added all of the extra goodies to my lame one making it 100x better.
I didn't actually attend the football game, bad I know. I had such a long week though that I was so exhausted. In fact, after talking to my roommate for like 5-10 minutes when I got home, I wound up laying down for about an hour before I decided I needed to be semi-productive not knowing exactly what the weekend would hold. For the first time in a long long time I actually planned out what I was going to make for the week & went to the grocery store. In my state of exhaustion though I left a bag at the grocery store & had to go back for it. I honestly probably wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't wanted to eat the crackers that I had bought.
Mr. Midwest text me telling me that we were officially going to see Kip Moore together because he had bought his ticket. I had already bought mine because I was going regardless. I finished watching an episode of Blood & Oil that I had had trouble watching before, ABC Go sucks as far as buffering is concerned. After that I passed out at the oh so late time of 9 pm. I had such a long week that I just couldn't stay awake any later. I don't know how I'm going to handle next week when I not only have morning practice Mon-Fri, but also bus training Mon-Wed until 7 pm & then games Thur-Sat.
Saturday morning I woke up & headed to work because it was my turn to do Saturday school tutorials. Zero kids showed up. Which was sorta nice because I didn't have to deal with anyone but I'm also not entirely sure I'm getting paid for sitting at work for 3.5 hours because I technically could've gone home. I did get grading done & redid my board for Monday. *Side note I had it all done & set up & then the custodians completely cleaned everything off** I also got some blogging done. It was nice to just get stuff done not at home & in silence. When I got home I did some food prep for the week. I made loaded mashed cauliflower, pork chops, & egg cups. I half watched the first episode of The Walking Dead & wasn't super impressed. Mr. Midwest & I are going to try to catch up on all of the episodes of the new season so maybe if I re-watch it I'll be more into it. That evening I went to Dallas to hang out some friends for Netflix & dinner. We had caprese skewers, brisket, & rosemary ice cream while watching Aziz Ansari's show & Drumline 2.
Sunday was super chill. I have a feeling I'm going to start living for Sundays. I woke up and made a Walmart run but they didn't have what I was looking for so I stopped at Whataburger for breakfast. I'm going to be giving up fast food soon so I decided I'd give them another shot at getting my order right. They succeeded. Every time I've been there since returning to TX in August, which has really only been a couple, they've messed it up somehow. About an hour into the Vikings v Rams game, which I had to keep up with on my handy dandy ESPN app because #TransplantProblems, Mr. Midwest invited me over. He did work while I half napped watching the Packers v Panthers game. In the end exactly what I needed to happen happened. My Vikings beat his Rams & the Panthers beat the Packers meaning the Vikings & Packers now have the same number of wins & losses. After that game he finished work while I real napped & then we went out for supper. We met a really fun couple there that we talked to all night. After we left the bar we had it out on what was going on & he said he had made a mistake before & that he didn't want to just be friends and he wanted to see where it could go sooo that's where we are.
