Weekend Roundup

Fun weekend! Saturday I worked, and since it was a decent writing day, I call that fun.

Sunday was all about…

Turbo! His parents dropped him off at 10am. We dug in dirt, played in the hot tub (pictured above), ran up and down stairs a gazillion times, played endless games of trucks, took Maggie for a walk, and had homemade chocoate cookies. We wore him out and he fell asleep five minutes after we put him in the car for the ride home. Our daughter-in-law grilled steaks for dinner too. Totally fun day but no words got written. Turbo takes a village, LOL! He’s sweet, well behaved and is a ball of constantly moving energy.

Today it’s back to the world of sexy, demanding Wing Slayers. I have a long ways to go, but I’m finally hitting a stride…which will take a headlong slide into a wall again at some point :-) But for now, I’m strapping in and typing!

How was your weekend?

    Yay for Turbo Time! What a cutie-patootie. And I know Maggie enjoyed him as much as you and Wiz. YAYAYAY for good writing days. It’s about time those Wing Slayer Hunters got in line. As for my weekend?

    Lazy. My weekend was totally lazy! My brain was/is still mush from all the formatting last week. I also had a panic moment when I was formatting print because I had repeating chapters in my print version AND the digital upload version. Total **FLAIL** and **FAIL** moment. I downloaded the book, discovered that the Amazon copy was fine. Then, after deep breathing, more coffee, and fixing the doubled chapter, I figured out that I pasted instead of copied from the original document. Yeah. Brain=mush. Anyway. That was Friday.

    Saturday was siren test, Mexican food, and the Kids. Only and I ended up visiting with the mom and daughter at the next table. Ex-softball players, both catchers. And mom heads up the Interactive Lab at the library of the Kids’ alma mater. She invited Only to bring Stormy to play in the virtual reality rooms and to use the 3-D and large format printer. Only’s in heaven. LG and I got home, I tooke a looooong nap. And we watched softball. OSU eventually went home. OU’s still in it. Two games today, finals tomorrow.

    Sunday was also a lazy day. Softball and book listening and laundry. I’m so proud. I actually got the laundry put up! Yes. I’m weird. I fold the laundry as it comes out of the dryer. Hang up stuff immediately goes in the closet. Folding stuff stays in the basket untill all the loads are done, except I usually forget that very last load–which is whites (T-shirts and socks), and I don’t always get them folded, therefore the laundry basket stays in the garage until LG runs out of something. I know. I know! I point to the part above where I admit I’m weird!

    Anyway, today I need to get a newsletter out. And then softball this afternoon. And maybe a nap. The brain doesn’t want to think about starting a new project or picking up an old one quite yet. I’ll give Iffy and the Brain a day or two then I’ll crack the whip again.

    Hope everyone had a good weekend and here’s to a productive week for us all! 🥰

    Wonderful Turbo Sunday! He looks right at home in the hot tub :). I bet her wore you out as much as you wore him out. The endless energy of a 3 year old!

    Our weekend was nothing special. We didn’t really do anything out and about.

    Harrison has come down sick. Sunday he woke up with severe congestion and a fever. DIL took him in to the Dr. and was told he has a bad virus. He’s feeling fine but likes to say he’s sick (which he is) and wink at you.

    I have to figure out something for Father’s Day. As you know, it gets really hard when all the boys have sig figs and busy lives. Whatever we do will be split in two as eldest won’t go anywhere or eat with youngest and his girlfriend around.

    I hope you’re getting words out :). Have a great afternoon!

    Silver, when we returned after taking Turbo home, Maggie barked and whined at us which she never does. We are guessing she was looking for Turbo, or maybe asking where he was–she seems to grasp that he’s young and should be supervised. It’s interesting.

    Oh my gosh I hate those panic moments! I’m so glad for you that it was just an error in the doc you were working on, and not the published one! And now it’s all done. Great job.

    Sounds like you had a pretty busy Saturday. So cool you ran into the other man, and now Only can take Stormy to the virtual reality rooms. I’d like to see that myself :-)

    LOL on your proud laundry moment! I don’t think you’re weird at all. I think I’m weird because even leaving a load of towels in teh dryer makes me anxious. Which means you focus on getting the books written while I make sure the laundry is folded and put away–you’re making better use of time!!!

    Take a few days off and enjoy. You’ve earned it.

    Viki, oh he definitely wore us out, but night of us were overtired so I’d say 6 or 7 hours was the perfect amount of time.

    I’m so sorry Harrison got sick. But it sounds like he’s bouncing back pretty quickly. Still it’s so hard to see them sick :-(

    Yeah it gets much harder. I hope you can find a way to get everyone together. We’re lowkey about mother’s and father’s day. Sometimes the kid are around and other times they call.

    Quiet weekends are good too :-) Hope your week is off to a great start!
