Weekend Roundup

My weekend was good. Saturday we did really exciting things like more packing up stuff, we worked in the planter outside and I gathered and checked some documents for taxes. My highlight of the day was running over to Youngest’s to drop off some cookies and play with my granddog.  Wizard and I didn’t go back later to see Turbo as we had more stuff to take care of at home and we were tired. Youngest got to hog Turbo all to himself :-) We will see Turbo very soon!

Sunday, I had a nice lunch with my sister-in-law. We went to a little sandwich shop that she and my brother-in-law loved. I’ve been there once before, so I knew what I could eat and ordered the Chef’s Salad. The poor waitress was so confused, LOL. I said Chef’s Salad like three times before she realized I meant Cobb Salad. Yep, I’m an idiot. But the waitress was very gracious and made me feel less like an idiot.

It was great to see my sister-in-law and have lunch. She’s interesting and it was so nice to just sit and talk for a while. I’m very proud of her. She’s handling a lot, and I’m always amazed by people’s resilience and strength. I hope I can learn from others how to have grace and courage in hard moments. But she also told me a story that made me laugh way too hard. Hopefully the other customers didn’t mind my outburst of laughter!

After that I came home and did a little more to get ready for our adventure in floors (it really isn’t that much — we’ve just spaced the work out over a week so it sounds like it’s endless), and did some laundry. Monday the guys (or gals, I don’t know yet!) are showing up to start the floors. My plan is to keep Maggie with us on a leash. The only reason for the leash is to prevent her from bugging them and unintentionally getting in their way. She’s pretty nosy, LOL. If we’re lucky this will only take 2 to 3 days.

Just to let everyone know, we have to move everything out of the office, and that requires shutting down the computer. I should be able to answer comments from my phone, but I may not be able to post a blog on Wednesday. Trust me, no one wants to read a post I typed on my phone :-). So if I’m not here on Wednesday, that’s why. I should be able to post by Friday though!

How was your weekend?
