Happy Friday!

What just happened? How id today Friday? Sigh…okay last day of The Baby Bargain blog tour and the stop is Crystal’s Random Thoughts  Stop by and enter for a chance to win a $50.00 gift card. And if you want to catch up on ones you’ve missed, look on my home page here

Yesterday I wasn’t feeling great (just sinus that make me slightly queasy paired with a little insomnia), and by two o’clock I gave up working, sat on my butt and read for a little while. I probably need to step back a bit. Today will be better!

Wednesday I saw Biker Witch (my sister). I bought her coffee and begged for her forgiveness for being the absent sister.  But the truth is she always forgives me. No matter what I do, I’m forgiven.  She’s super cool that way. But then she tortured me by telling me funny stories about her volunteer job working with rescue dogs. It’s torture because I’m jealous!  Although picturing her in a battle with a Chihauhau determined to get out of a kennel while Biker Witch is trying to get another dog out was priceless. I may have splurted coffee. In fact, I was laughing so hard, I’m not sure who won–Biker Witch or the Chihauhau. I think it was a draw,  but they will battle it out again next week :-)

Tonight we’re meeting our son’s for dinner to celebrate a birthday. This weekend, I’m going to do a little cleaning.

What are you doing this weekend?

    I really hope that you’re feeling better. Sinus headaches are so annoying. They can rival migraines. It’s true – you need a break now and then.

    Coffee with Biker Witch sounds like fun. I’d be jealous of the dog stories too. I can see the Chihauhau giving her fits. They may be tiny but they can be BIG trouble ;).

    Have a great time tonight celebrating. Did you make a birthday cake?

    All I’m going to do this weekend is laundry and cleaning too :(.

    Have a good one!

    ROFL… I can imagine Biker Witch trying to wrangle a chihuahua. Too funny. Sorry you weren’t feeling great. Take a break, if you can. Have fun at the birthday thing. Eat a piece of cake for me. ;o)

    This weekend we’ll finally have the opportunity to begin settling in. Most of the furniture is here and all of the appliances. Hubs already started laundry in our brand new agitator-less washer. (Yes, I’m a walking commercial.) We still have three bookcases to assemble, so there’s that to do. And grocery shopping! I can’t wait to fill that fridge and make real food again.

    And I need to write. I’ve done good getting the words on paper this week, but now I need to get them into the computer.

    BE I bet the computer was the first thing you set up. At least in my house if we ever moved it would be the first thing my husband would unpacked and have running even before the washer. His thoughts would be he doesn’t need a clean shirt but he has got to be able to play star craft or the world will end.

    Jen some time you will just have to write your memoir “Coffee with Biker Witch”

    Have a great weekend every one. Oh Viki ask Jen to send Ram to help you with the laundry. He is great at folding and getting the crease just right in the pants.

    Kat – those puppies weren’t even really packed. They traveled in the car with me, and Hubs’ laptop was on the night we got here. (Because the internet was live a few days before. LOL)

    Viki, you make me feel guilty with all your cleaning. I can’t (and don’t) do it like I once did but I used to be a clean freak.

    The sinus headache seems better, thanks!

    I’m not doing a cake, CPA boy has his lovely fiancee to do that :-) Plus we’re going out and I think he wants dessert there. I’ll make him a cake later if he wants me to.

    B.E. I wish I’d been there to see the Chihauhau wrangling. Those little guys are quick and tiny.

    If you can write through settling in after a huge a move, you’re amazing! I’ve only written through our reno’s because I have a (figurative) gun to my head. So kudos to you! And yay for getting almost settled in! Not sure why only “most” of your furniture is there, but I’ve never moved cross country.

    I can’t figure out an agitator-less washing machine. Weird! But glad its working for you!

    Kat, LOLOL on Ram! I can actually see him doing that. No job is too big or two small for him :-)

    Biker Witch doesn’t let me tell half the stories…she’s kind of a downer that way. A lot of our conversations go this, “I better not see this on your blog, but…” and end with me laughing and swearing I won’t put it on the blog. And I never do, but if she forgets to give me the warning, then I’m all over it!

    Have a great weekend, Kat!

    I’m slow getting to my “rounds” today. :( This sinus/respiratory crud knocks me on my butt. Actually, it’s the meds. Anyway, I had some urgent work to get out this morning and now I’m catching up!

    Jen, you have the funniest family in the universe. So not fair! But I love hearing the stories. :D

    This weekend is chapter meeting with a brain-storming session before lunch. Looking forward to it. Sunday, I’ve got to get back in the writing groove. I’m soooo far behind on two projects. :(

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Silver, so sorry the meds are wearing you down. But hoping you’re having a day at your meeting!
