Weekend Round Up!

DSCN0036Guess what I did this weekend!

I went to visit Bailey! Bailey lives with my two sons.  Middle son was at work, so I went to see my oldest son.

On my way I stopped at Target because I wanted to buy Bailey a new toy.

Target only had stupid toys. So I then went to Petsmart where I found not one but three new toys for Bailey.

I didn’t buy anything for my two sons :-) I know, that’s just wrong.

Oldest son and I went to lunch, we ate out on patio and talked.  Those are the moments that make every second of the years filled with trials and worries and sleepless anxiety of raising kids.

I just started a new book, THE MANE EVENT  by Shelly Laurenston.  I’m only 60-some pages in, but OMG!!! Love, love, love her writing! She’s so dang funny! Good thing I’m not prone to jealousy…oh wait, I totally am.

So how was your weekend?

    OMG, I saw a commercial yesterday for the best dog toys ever. They were called CrazyCritters or something like that. Made me wish I had a dog. Bailey looks like he’s having a blast with his new toy. “I am Danger Dog. Take my toy at your peril.” LOL

    My weekend was relaxing for the most part. I watched football, worked on my future great niece’s blanket (they still don’t know the gender, but the parents want a girl), and got some edits typed in.

    Oh, and I got the book you sent. Thanks again, Jen. It’s next up on my TBR pile. =o)

    Oh how adorable and funny!!! Thank gosh your sons understand your love for Bailey or you might have some pouting going on, lol! But you gotta love those animals, I know I love my two!

    My weekend was very wonderful! Friday it was chill out night big time. Hubby went to camp and Halfing went sleep at a friends house – Can you say HOME ALONE! Then Saturday, it was my spa day (Hubby & Halfing got me that for Christmas) and let me tell you IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!! OH MY GOSH! It was from 11 to 4 and it was glorious. Came home and chilled out – very restful! Halfing went out with friends and came home for curfew. Sunday was grocery shopping day ~ oh joy! But I did read a quickie book and it was freaking hot!
    I hope everyone had a great weekend!

    This weekend daughter and I saw a sign for Beagle puppies on sale. We looked at each other, said ahhh, and then said nope, can’t do it, lol.

    Friday was spent watching daughter cheer at the basketball game. Saturday my mom, my dughter, my neice and to an hour long drive to Build A Bear Workshop. Let me tell you what an awesome store. It was one of my Christmas present to daughter and neice, but my mom and I ended up getting one too. We just couldn’t resist! They were so cute.

    Sunday was spent watching football. I did get some reading in. Just finished Deborah Cooks Winter Kiss. I love Shelly Laurenston’s books, your right she has a great way of infusing humor into her books.

    That was too cute about bringing toys for Bailey and nothing for your sons. Hey, you did go out for lunch, that’s something.

    My weekend was good. I went and had a manicure and pedicure and oh my was my foot ticklish when it was being scrubbed. It’s been awhile since I’ve had either and I think I like it.

    My computer is still dead, if it weren’t for internet at the day job I wouldn’t have access to all of my friends. I can’t chat cuz I’m busy, but the dang Cardinals lost. SO SAD! Oh well, if they had to lose I’m glad it was to the Saints.

    B.E., you’re welcome on the book!

    Crazycritters–okay I’ll look for those. Must keep Bailey in toys :-)

    When is the baby due? So exciting! My kids aunt made each of them a blanket and they slept with it for years and years.

    Cecile, I did buy my son lunch, does that count?

    Spa day sounds wonderful! So does having the house to yourself for an evening. Grocery shopping–not so much. With tax season here, you need a break like this weekend.

    Val, you passed up beagle puppies? They are so cute! What willpower you have!

    It must be so cool to see your daughter cheer. Build a Bear sounds like fun! I’ve passed them in the mall, and occasionally my oldest son threatens to get that for his dad as a gift. Somehow I don’t think Wizard would enjoy that as much as your daughter and niece :-)

    Shelly L rocks!

    Dru, I’m ticklish too! I always old my breath and try to act sophisticated, LOL!

    My son was as excited about Bailey’s new toys as the dog was. Pretty funny.

    Erika, so sorry about your computer! Is there any hope of bringing it back to life?

    If I remember correctly, she’s due in July. This’ll make me a great-aunt twice. I’m not old enough to be a great-aunt. LOL

    BE, you AREN’T old enough! But I’m a great aunt a few times over, and my niece and nephews are just a few years younger than me. It happens that way sometimes!

    July…so exciting!!!! Although I feel sorry for mom being pregnant in July :-)

    It sounds like you had too much fun with Bailey. But I love dogs so I totally understand. I bought my dog Dega a sofabed. Yes…it’s made like a minature sofa and is leather-like. hehe She loves it!!

    We had Christmas at my house. Had 20+ people there. 10 of them were ages 14-9. We had so much fun!!! I actually hated to see them go.

    I dunno. *sniff* I hope so. If the cost of fixing it is going to be more expensive than buying a new one I may just have to pony up. Think positive thoughts.

    Any spells? Anyone? Spells for fixing computers?

    Ashlynn, sounds like Christmas in Jan. was a huge success at your house!

    Too cute on your dog. Of course she needed a miniature sofa of her very own :-)

    Erika, I desperately tired “fix damn computer” spells last year and they didn’t work. I hope you have much better luck! Sending positive thoughts your way!

    I cleaned the whole house from top to bottom. We had moved furniture for Christmas so I also rearranged my living room.

    I also got to start reading Jacquelyn Frank “Hunting Julian” and it is good. I recommened it! Its a great read so far!

    have a good day!
