WEEKEND RECAP: Benefiting from the Bonus Day!

Weekends are usually 1.5 days long for us because Charlie works a shift at the coffee shop on Saturdays. So when the rare beast that is the three-day weekend graces us with its presence, well it’s kind of wonderful. It means the shop is closed for the holiday and we have a whole legit weekend together as a family. We tried to make the most of it and the beautiful weather. Summer weather is such a strange obsessive thing for people in Cleveland or anywhere that has long winters. It’s almost stressful because you are constantly trying to pack the good-weather days with outdoor activities and you feel guilty for every beautiful minute that gets spent inside. Maybe that’s why I like winter so much. It’s relaxing and cozy and calm. But I digress. Our Saturday was spent surprising Charlie with a 30th birthday dinner filled with good friends and great food at Luxe Kitchen & Lounge. On Sunday we hit up the Hingetown Sunday Market. Ummm, if you haven’t taken a walk around that area then you are missing out. Some of the homes are so magnificent. It really awoke that sleeping giant in me that has a hankering to leave the burbs and renovate a gem in an up and coming neighborhood within the Cleveland City limits. But our yard and our school district and Target within 2 mins bring me back to reality. Sigh. Oh we also thought Desmond was suffering from a case of miserably unhappy child syndrome, but it turns out he has hand, foot and mouth disease. So there’s that.
