Why do the weekends fly by?

  I have been so excited all week about my three day weekend. I had three days off from work, although I did babysit for a short while friday. I don't know how it happened but it's now Saturday evening and two thirds of my long weekend is gone. I didn't do anything cool or exciting but I kind of feel gyped. I don't know how two days passed before I could blink. Is this what happens as you get older? I just need more time.
  I love having time with my family. The only time we have together is the weekends. My husband and I see each other for only fleeting moments throughout the week. It's always so nice to be with him and the kids and do things as a family. We try to do something family related every weekend. I think that's what feels off. We didn't go to a playground for a picnic, like last weekend, go to a park, have a movie night, nothing. It was an off weekend. They always go quickly but this one in particular just melted away. There's still tomorrow.
  I have to work next weekend but the weekend after that I took another three day weekend due to my birthday. Luckily I've stopped counting birthdays so I won't be getting any older. I am very much looking forward to that next long weekend. I guess I live for the weekends. I just wish I could make them last. I am going to make tomorrow count. The last day of this long weekend. I'm going to cherish my time with my family and make the time worth it. More than changing what I do, I am going to change the way I feel about it. Even if we just sat around and hung out all day, these are precious moments and I know that the next weekend will come soon.

Great Giveaway over at Mama to 4 Blessings

   Mama to 4 Blessings is hosting a giveaway for a Peg Perego Aria Twin 60 40 Double Stroller.
The Aria Twin is an awesome side–by–side compact stroller. You can bet I entered this giveaway. I want to win one for my boys! I am an avid walker and my big clunky front to back twin stroller was only good when my youngest boy was an infant and I could strap the car seat in. The best part is that this stroller will fit through the standard door frame! Not to mention it has individual adjustable hoods, individual reclining backrests and individual child trays. Did I mention how badly I want this stroller? Hurry over to Mama to 4 Blessings for your chance to win here:
