Weekend Roundup

Had a great weekend, but wow I’m tired as I’m typing this on Sunday night. All the kids just left, we ate, swam, had decadent chocolate cake, and the kids and Wizard got me a new laptop computer for my birthday. My old laptop was a dinosaur, this one is a bit smaller and lighter. It’s totally unexpected and I’m thrilled!

Jett (Middle Son’s dog) came to visit too. On Saturday, Middle Son sent me a text that said, “I told Jett how you are. He thought it was hilarious.”  With this picture:

I was in the kitchen cleaning the counters, and had stopped to check my phone and take a drink of coffee–I laughed so hard I splurted coffee and had to clean the counters again :-)

And at our house, Jett’s not allowed on the couch. But while the rest of us were out in the pool, this happened:


Special K (CPA Boy’s wife) was supposed to be watching him, but instead of telling him to get off the couch, she took a picture. Then she texted it to all of us to let us know how the no-couch rule is working out. I love her!! LOLOL!

How was your weekend?

    I’m so glad you had an awesome weekend, even if it was tiring. Aww, Jett! So cute! Yay for a new ‘puter! I bet that’ll help loads.

    It was a weekend. Watched TV, read, vegged. Then got to work and got caught back up on my editing yesterday afternoon/evening. It’s all good. I’ll have this back to my editor next Monday. On track for a release next month, good lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise.

    Time is flying much too fast! Jett is too cute. I just want to rub his ears and say, “Who’s a gooood boyyyy!!!!” ;)

    Still wrapping up the dregs of con crud. I meant to work Saturday after family lunch. I came home, laid down and slept for 3 hours. :lol: Sunday was our anniversary. LG handled some “fires.” I worked until I wrote myself into a corner. I couldn’t figure a way out so I’m backtracking. Fun times. Time to get to work!

    B.e., thanks the computer was a complete surprise :-)

    TV is okay, reading is great and vegging out is a requirement to reboot our creativity. Yay on making progress on your edits! You’ll get it released next month!

    Silver, Happy Anniversary to you and LG!

    Jett would love the attention from you :-)

    I really hope the sleep helped you get rid of the virus. I’m so sorry you came home with the crud.

    I have to get to work too, good luck to us both!

    Sorry, but not really, that you had to clean up the coffee ;). Jett is too cute. What a photo. I would have lost it too. By the way, the couch is very comfortable :).

    Glad you had a great weekend celebrating your birthday. The cake sounds perfect for the chocolate lover in all of us. What a nice gift in the laptop too. Great family :)!

    My weekend was nothing special. That’s good. This Wednesday youngest is taking me to NY for lunch with my mom and step-dad. He’s doing it as a birthday present. He’s a good kid :).

    Have a great afternoon!

    Viki, Middle Son and Jett are a crack up :-)

    What a great birthday present for you! I’m sure your mom and step-dad are thrilled too!

    How’s Pee Wee doing?

    Poor PeeWee isn’t doing too well. He’s on several meds until the surgery this weekend to pull his teeth :(. I feel so bad for him. Thank you for asking about him.

    Have a great evening!

    Viki, I feel for him too. It’s going to be a long week and weekend for all of you. I’ve been thinking about him.
