The Fourth, By The Numbers

I'm exhausted. In fact, I woke up yesterday morning exhausted so this morning's definitely no prize. That got my thinking, just what the hell did I do that wore me out?

Beers consumed: 12
Cups of coffee mainlined: 6
Cookouts hosted: 1
Hours of sleep achieved: 12
Hours spent on the yard: 3 1/2
Temperature and humidity while working on yard: 95/98%
Movies seen: 1 (Mr. Popper's Penguins)
Games of imaginary Star Wars played: 502
Lego ships built: 32
Lego American flags assembled: 1 (see yesterday's post)
Yard sales participated in: 1 (loosely)
Dollars scored from yard sale: $120
Fireworks set off: 12
Books read: 1
Albums bought and listened to: 3
Freaked out kids because of fireworks: 1 (Owen)
Work emails responded to: 0

So as it turns out I have pretty good reason to be a little tired. I'm going to go make some coffee and head to my basement office to work. Can't beat the one-story commute.

What were your numbers for the weekend? What did you guys do?

I am fairly surprised that I actually forgot to drink a beer. LOL. We cooked out and played in the pool and mostly, just chilled. Though, we did do some cheesy little fountain fireworks. All in all, good times.

With 8 teenagers camping in the basement, not drinking this weekend seemed like the responsible parent think to do. We grilled out all three nights, Saturday night for all the teens. Then I got stuck watching The Time Traveler's Wife with my wife Sunday night.

So overall, I'm thinking I may have suffered more this weekend than George Washington did at Valley Forge :)

My Fourth of July was more enjoyable this year, as our 5 youngest little darlings, watched fireworks at our friends house (illegal in Rhode Island), but at least I took a break from educating parents about the security threats to our children on internet.
