Weekend Roundup!

Friday, was awesome as Bailey came over to play…

Bailey on couch

I got no work done! None! And oh yeah, my son came over with Bailey :-) He’s my middle son and always a joy to see.  Plus, he has Bailey! (And yeah, that’s part of me behind the dog.)

Saturday started with a trip to the dentist and I realized there are certain things you don’t want to see at the dentist’s office. Like say the hygienist sharpening her tools. Yep, she had out a sharpening stone and was getting nice points on those hook things. Sigh.

The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful. I did finished SURRENDER OF A SIREN by Tessa Dare.  It was good.  I enjoyed learning more about life on a ship in 1817.

Now I have to get cracking on the Endless Synopsis. I’m really just not concentrating and staying focused. I will this week!

How was your weekend?

    Not too shabby. Most of my favorite football teams won. My most wonderful and lovely librarian reserved Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins for me, and I inhaled it Saturday. And I treated myself to a Blizzard yesterday. Football, books and ice cream… it don’t get any better. ;o)

    Sorry about your trip to the dentist, and having to work on a synopsis. Both are things I’d rather not face any time soon.

    My weekend was quiet. I went to a friend’s house who lives up north (NYS) and had a good time. Then the rest of the weekend was relaxing, reading and quilting.

    Good luck with your synopsis.

    Sorry Jen, my weekend was pretty lame … nothing to report – but, as the saying goes, sometimes no news is good news ! Best of luck with your synopsis :D

    Ouch… Not wanting to trade places with you Jen!(at the dentist office… I HATE the dentist with a passion, I tell him the only reason I go is because he has gorgeous blue eyes, and he is cute… and yea, I tell him that, lmao… so he doesn’t inflict to much pain on me)

    I love Bailey! Adorable!

    My weekend… you ready for this… I wish it was a slow relaxing weekend… but far from it!
    Friday night, hubby, me, daughter, her boyfriend (so not ready for this), her bff and her “date” all went eat out and then went see Sorority Row. Not as scary as I thought it would be. But I still covered my eyes! Yea, a scary cat witch I am!
    Then Saturday… I went Halloween shopping!!!! Got my decoration for my b-day party. Got daughter her costume for her party… (we are both October babies… her 22nd and me 30th). Very happy with the items I found! LSU (my fave college football team) won!!
    Then Sunday… went homecoming accessory shopping… so not ready for this… and regular grocery shopping!
    Did start to read Hard As Nails by MA Ellis!
    So, something good came from this weekend!!!

    My weekend was good. I had an old friend call me up hysterical, okay, this is not the good part, and so I ran over there to make sure all was well. I now remember why we’re not that close anymore. I am too old for that kind of drama. The rest of my weekend was great though. I got a lot of cross-stitching done and my daughter finished her project. It’s very cute I’ll post it tomorrow.

    I’m glad to hear you got your puppy time. :)

    Cecile, you and The Only share a birthday. :D We’ve always called her our little Halloween witch and she thought the costumes were all for her…for years! LOL!

    I worked. Mostly. We did go out to eat and I watched the Cubs and Cards series.

    I have 5000 more words to add to this polishing of the MS, but considering how much telling I did (as opposed to showing), I’ve got my work cut out for me.

    *mixes potion* Here, Jen. My super-duper Knock-out Synopsis potion is guaranteed to get you off high center. It has many secret ingredients. ;) Now get to work, witch! And me, too!

    B.E., okay, now I want a Blizzard!

    My husband was yelling at the TV so I’m thinking that he was rooting for the other team :-) I may have teased him about being a loser too. I don’t know why he puts up with me.

    The dentist was easy, really. It was just funny to see her sharpening her tool. My biggest worry is not popping out the joint (TMJ) that gives me trouble.

    Cecile, how do you get all that into one weekend? I’m impressed that you have your Halloween shopping done and your costumes.

    My mom and sister have birthdays in Oct too. It’s a popular month :-)

    Your daughter has a boyfriend? I’m not laughing, I swear! I lived through all that drama with my boys (and yes, boys are dramatic). Good luck!!! Might want to have a few spells handy…

    Erika, I’m with you! I don’t need emotional vampires in my life! Remind me tomorrow so I can see your daughter’s project. I’m looking forward to it!

    Silver, really? The potions works? Send it over!

    You’re so close! I know 5,000 words sounds like a lot, but you have a rich plot to work from so it should be fairly easy (says the one NOT writing it!) I’m really excited about this project!

    *borrows a winged monkey from Erika to deliver the potion*

    Take three drops of this with an appletini! Guaranteed to unstick witches. ;)

    I’m trying not to be excited. Raised expectations and all that. I’m not galloping through it but I’m working at a nice jog. Catch you next break! Cheers!

    Oh Silver… that is a treat!! I was like her too… In fact I thought that was just for me!! LMAO!!! Always thought Halloween was my personal holiday! LOL!!!
    It is awesome to have a birthday at that time!

    Jen… Honey, I have no idea how I fit what I do in my weekend… really I don’t. But then when I look at my TBR pile and my blog… I then realize that I don’t have enough me time!! I am rethinking this having a 15 yr old who is turning 16 and becoming a very busy social butterfly!!! And yes, you are laughing at me!!! I am so not ready for this!!!! And I am joining in the laughter and the appletini’s… So not ready!!!!
    I will probably need those spells…. Silver can hand you the Potions for the synopsis and I will take the “stop kids from growing, lol” spells for life!!!
    Congrats to Silver for her 5000 words!!!! YAYAYAY

    My weekend was busy as it is usually.

    Friday night went to our local high school football game. Saturday, errands and the local fall festival. The kids loved it. And I had chocolate covered cheesecake. YUM! But so not good for the hips. Sunday, friends came over and spent most the day while I fixed homemade chicken enchiladas. Also not good for the hips. lol

    Oh, and we also watched football and NASCAR.
    And ordered new cell phones. WOOT!

    Bailey is so cute, Jen.

    Wow, sounds like most of you had pretty busy weekends. I was lazy and made no plans. Unfortunately, I don’t get to see my NCAA team play much as I’m usually sleeping when they play on Sat. (Sometimes 3rd shift sucks.) They did win this week, though they didn’t exactly play a tough team. I read Susan Kearney’s Lucan, the first of her Pendragon Legacy series. I didn’t want to put it down and can’t wait for the next one. Good thing I’ll have Soul Magic to read before then :)

    Silver, the potion was a huge help! Got to 15 pages today. It’s not very good, but it’s a start! Thanks!

    I guess I understand not wanting to have huge expectations. I’ll try to control myself.

    And it so past time for Appletinis!

    Cecile, we are NEVER ready for our kids to grow up! But you’re doing great. Sounds like you have an awesome relationship with your daughter.

    Time for Appletinis!

    Kira, chocolate covered cheesecake? That’s just mean! I like chicken enchiladas too!

    I don’t know how you are keeping up on everything you’re doing!

    New cell phones, cool!

    Thanks on Bailey. My son thinks it’s hilarious that I’m so attached to his dog. But you know, Bailey is all fun and no work for me ;-)

    Dawn, I’m impressed that you work 3rd shift! It’s not easy to do, and it sucks to miss out on things to sleep.

    Oh, Susan Kearney! I haven’t read her in a while. I’ll look for Lucan!
