Weekend Roundup

It was another un-crazy weekend for me, which I so appreciate! I can’t even remember what we did Saturday, just normal stuff. Sunday, my sister, Biker Witch and her Biker Hubby came to visit for a while. Maggie was thrilled to have company! But she was a little sad that she didn’t get to go for a ride in their snazzy new SUV :-) After they left, Wizard went to his brother’s to watch the Superbowl and I stayed home with Maggie.

I spent some time writing too.

Just for fun, here’s a picture of my oldest son, CPA Boy, at a Spartan Race (It’s a BRUTAL 8 miles race with obstacles that would have made me cry or run for the nearest donut shop).

I love watching the concentration on his face. That’s what I’m working on regaining in my work! Until half way through last year, I had that same focus, and I’ll get it back again! And yes, CPA Boy completed the Spartan Race :-)

So that’s my weekend, how was yours?

    Yay for uncrazy weekends! Way to go CPA Boy! Yay, that would make me cry, too. Can we just sit on the sidelines with a box of donuts and watch?

    It was a weekend. Uncrazy here, too. Then it snowed and blowed. From this morning’s reports, the roads are treacherous, but we have no plans to go anywhere. Perfect day to stay inside and work.

    Dude! CPA Boy/Man rocks! I vote for the donuts and sidelines. Uncrazy is always a good thing. I hit a concrete wall on the writing and I keep thinking I need to…you know…exercise or something, but with the way my office is cluttered at the moment, not happening. I spent a couple of hours digging out one corner. It looks nice and neat. I’m going to buy a plastic tub to dump Only’s stuff (still here after how many years she’s been married?!?!) so I can use the plastic stacking drawers in that corner for my author copies. That will free up some more floor space. Eventually, I want to move a drafting table that’s stacked with stuff into the original corner. Doing that frees up more space for the gazelle and gives me access to two book cases so I can like…put stuff up. Too bad I have to get words in, too. :roll:

    Time to get off the net and into my story. I’m going to get two chapters done today or…else. First though, more coffee!

    B.E. I vote for the sidelines too! Once upon a time I was a gym mom but I’m over it now. But I’m proud of him for doing it with his friends, he needs it with his high stress job.

    Wow you’re having winter! I’ve heard of that :-) I’m glad you’re staying off the treacherous roads. Hope you get a lot of work done!

    Silver, thanks on CPA Boy. He has his moments :-) I knew he was training for this, but I don’t think I realized how committed he was until I saw the pictures after he finished the race.

    Exercise is so hard. Maggie is my magic for that right now. But we can go for walks, it’s a little harder for you in a state that has real winter. I hope you can declutter soon. We packed all our kids crap in plastic bins, and the two that have houses, we gave it to them, the others are in rafters in the garage. We hate clutter :-)

    Hope you can break through that wall today and get the story on track!

    Congrats to CPA boy! Great job! I love the look on his face too. LOL on the doughnut shop :).

    Sounds like the best kind of weekend. Did Wizard enjoy the game? Did his team win?

    Glad you got some writing in. Didn’t you say before that Maggie loves your sister? No wonder she wanted to check out the new SUV ;).

    Finally made an appointment to have the cyst on my back removed. I just hate not being able to d any kind of work out for 10 days. I will drive poor hubs nuts. The doc looks at it tomorrow and it leaves on the 20th :).

    Have a wonderful afternoon!

    Viki, oh wow, you have a cyst on your back? I’m really sorry you have to go through the removal and give up working out for 10 days. I’m sure you’re dreading it, but better to take care of it and have it done.

    Thanks on CPA Boy. He was pretty happy with himself. He works to inspire those around him to strive for new goals too.

    Maggie does love my sister :-) She also loves going in cars!

    Wizard said it was a good game even though his team lost. He had fun with two of his brothers on the guy’s day.

    I’ll be thinking of you on the 20th!
