Weekend Roundup

My weekends have been hijacked by life, LOL! And that’s okay. I’m happy to be busy :-)

Saturday was my mother-in-law’s husband’s 90th birthday. It was very sweet seeing his family honor him. I went by myself as Wizard had to be somewhere else. That’s not as weird as it sounds–Wizard’s dad passed away when he was a teenager, so this is his mom’s second marriage. But Wizard absolutely would have been there if he hadn’t had a prior commitment. Anyway, I went, and had a great time. Traffic sucked as usual, but audiobooks make traffic much easier to cope with!

Sunday, Wizard was still occupied, so I went to see my favorite boy, Turbo!


We had fun doing simple things like going to breakfast and to the park to play. He’s 18 months old now!

Then Special K gave me a gift:

Ha! Does my daughter-in-law know me? Yes she does!

Oh, and yesterday, I once again proved I can’t be trusted around chocolate, even frozen chocolate. I ate a frozen Twix Bar and I loved it! I let it soften for a few minutes, and then enjoyed every bite.

How was your weekend?

    OMG, Turbo is getting so big! He’s less like a baby and more like a little boy every time you post a pic. LOL, I love the sign!

    Another quiet weekend. My knee was bugging me, so no walks, but once the gimpy settled down, I did get some cleaning done. Finally made the granola bars – oats n fruit, no chocolate this time. And I read a pretty good fantasy mystery/suspense – Kalanon’s Rising by Darian Smith. Grisly murders, magics, intrigues. Yummy.

    He’s soooo handsome! Fun weekend. Mine was boring. Totally. I did nothing, which means work stacked up for today. Ugh.

    Man is he cute! And all that hair :). What a doll. Sounds like you guys had a great day. Love Special K’s gift. She’s right ;).

    Sorry Wizard couldn’t make it to the birthday party. Glad you were able to go and had a nice time in spite of the awful traffic.

    It’s okay to only eat one frozen twix bar. I bet it was great while semi frozen. When I was a kid my grandpa had me put 3 musketeer bars in the freezer. They are delicious.

    We didn’t get to go with Harrison to the Jurassic dino thing. Hubs was busy and I got a nail in my tire :(. Harrison had a great time and they took tons of photos.

    I spent this morning getting a new tire. Get this – 1 and only 1 run flat tire was $420.15. Insane.

    Have a wonderful week!

    B.E., Turbo really is getting big!

    Hopefully you just overdid a little on your knee, and rest helped. Bleh on cleaning but yay for granola bars and good books!

    Silver, I’m glad you’re taking a break over the weekends. Finishing that last book was a rough ride for you, and then other challenging projects sucked up all your time and mental energy. Weekends off are a great idea to recharge a little. Hope you made a dent in the to-do list today.

    Viki, Turbo was born with a lot of hair!

    I love cold and sometimes frozen chocolate :-) I did only eat one but the temptation lingers, LOL!

    Glad Harrison had fun at the Jurassic Park event, but bummer you got a nail in your tire and couldn’t go :-(

    That price for a tire is batsh*t!! I know it’s a run-flat but that’s just outrageous. I’m sorry your week started off that way. Hope your week improves!
