Time Machine?

Does anyone have a time machine? I'd like to rewind and start the weekend again, because I need the rest. Since I didn't get any housework done, what exactly did I do this weekend?
Friday - Went shopping. Got a new bag and a jacket. Did I NEED a new bag? Depends on what your definition of the word "need" is.
Went to support my oldest friend at the opening reception of her first gallery showing. *I am not biased* She is an incredible artist and it was wonderful to see her work out there and hear all the compliments being heaped upon her. She deserves every bit of the praise and then some. I wanted desperately to buy one of her paintings, but then I wouldn't be able to pay my car payment....
Went to try a restaurant in our neighborhood, as we don't get many chances to dine out sans kiddies. And since we live in a dog friendly area, they had smoked pig ears on the menu, a little take home treat for Spot.
Saturday - Morning basketball game for Golden Boy. Our team won by 3 points! It was a close game, very exciting, and it was nice to see the kids bustin some ass out on the court :) Oh, but then we went out and found 2 parking tickets on Big Bertha. Damn permit parking! Damn expired plates!
Went directly to Currency Exchange to purchase new plate sticker.
Went shopping, where Belly had his own cart and pretended he was taking care of his "baby" as well. So he filled his cart with fruit, milk and other baby friendly things while pretending to chase said baby around and plop him/her back into the cart with a reminder that he/she must sit down while inside the store. Fellow shoppers either thought he was very cute and precocious or thought he was readying himself for teen parenting. Not sure.
Spent a long time at Target picking out stuff for Joey's birthday party. And trying to find my mother who kept wandering away like an Alzheimer's patient. Seriously, I wanted to kill her. Then she tried to buy a handbag organizer thingie for me, that goes over your closet door to hold/display all your bags. I said no. Do I reeeealy want my husband to see just how many handbags I have??
Spent a long time at Home Depot picking out tile and stuff for the bathroom project. A. Very. Long. Time.
Sunday - Started the laundry that I neglected all weekend. Didn't finish.
Was happily trying out my new 1.5" ceramic curling iron when my husband came in to ask me a question. Turned around and burned myself. Smart, I know.
Went to Joey's party, where we all had a great time. On the way home, however, Belly realized he had to go to the bathroom. We pulled into a gas station, where he had to wait because someone was already in the bathroom. He waited, doing the international Gotta Pee dance. Finally got in, thankfully it was a very clean bathroom, but the toilet was too tall for him. So I lifted him up just far enough to reach it, but instead of just doing his thing, he thought it would be better to lift his little legs up to stand on the toilet, and since he did that just as he started to GO..... he peed all over the place, including his pants, which got in the way as he tried to stand up. Soooo I had to strip him of his warm and wet clothes and wrap him in my coat. He looked like a little flasher! Shirt, socks and shoes and that's it. Poor little guy. He was upset because he made it to the bathroom. It was just a logistical error that caused his pants to be wet!
Then I went to the Save Abandoned Babies meeting where we fight for truth and justice. Oh wait. Wrong meeting. I meant, where we fight to stop unsafe newborn abandonments, in the hopes that all babies will be raised in safe and loving homes.
Got home at 9pm to find DH and small children playing video games. *sigh* Shuffle everyone to bed, forget to let the dog out, so that Monday morning started like shit. Quite literally.

So here it is, Monday, and I've gotten nothing of import accomplished. So, if you do, perchance, have a time machine, may I borrow it?
Bag and parking ticket --->
Guess which was more expensive.
Hint: Not the blue one!

Hey, I just got a parking ticket, too. Thing is, I didn't pay. Yeah, it's a gamble, didn't pay 8 times and got nailed once so it all worked out cheaper. Hate seeing the yellow envelope, though.

Wow. At least it's Thursday, nearing a NEW weekend where you can get everything you want accomplished. :)
