Weekend Roundup

Not much happened this last weekend. We didn’t go to Turbo’s game, and made a new plan to go to his game on the 27th and then lunch with my daughter-in-law and Turbo (and CPA Boy if he can — tax season can cut into his weekends). Naturally it ended up not raining during his game. But if we had gone, it would have rained :-)

Otherwise, Wizard’s dealing with stuff with his brother’s house (we’ll be so glad when he’s finally done handling with the estate), and I was working with my  middle daughter-in-law’s mom to find a location for the baby shower. We don’t have a house located central enough, so we need a venue that fits our budget. We made some progress and will hopefully get a venue nailed down this week or the weekend. I really like her mom so I think we’re going to enjoy this.

Sunday I spent two hours trying on clothes in Kohls, and came home with a dress, a shirt and sunglasses. Then I ordered two pairs of sandals to see how they fit. I’m trying. The styles of clothes just doing suit me. I need my basic summer clothes before we go to Hawaii Mid-May. I ruin, wear out or hate most of my shirts lately. Wizard is nagging me to buy clothes that I want.

This week is shaping up to be full of appointments and more waiting. I’m having the throat procedure on May 3rd (assuming nothing changes as we are still gathering tests and results), so I’m doing the bloodwork Monday and need to go buy a volunteer shirt at the animal shelter. Tues is my eye doc appointment. Wed is errands. Thursday is my Dog Walking Class, and Friday is something I can remember :-) But things are getting done so that’s always a win.

I also began reading THE SERPERANT AND THE WINGS OF THE NIGHT by Carissa Broadbent and am enjoying it. It’s a vampire paranormal.

How was your weekend?

    Sorry you didn’t get to Turbo’s game. You know if you had gone it would have poured. That’s just how things are 😉.

    I feel for Wizard. All that estate work is very time consuming. Good luck in finding the venue for the shower. That can be very hard to do especially if you don’t have a relationship with the place already. I’m sure you two will find the ideal location and have a fantastic party.

    Shopping is so hard. It’s as though you have to be a dowdy old woman or a feisty teenager to find anything that fits. Designers have kind of forgotten that we are aging better and need up to date but not slutty clothes. Here’s to you finding a couple things. Sure hope you find more.

    You are certainly full of appointments this week. I can’t wait to hear more about the dog walking class.

    I have not read this author. I’ve seen the book cover floating around but haven’t looked at it. How is it so far?

    My weekend was taxes. They had to be re-submitted again. Then I had sent to payments via certified mail. The tracking shows them just hanging out at the post offices awaiting pick up. I’m freaking that I’ll be charged interest if they don’t get it today. Man I hate taxes!

    We fired up the grill for the first time this year. Usually hubs grills but not anymore. We’re going to have the leftover London Broil again tonight. So I will fire the monster up again and have Spunk yelling at me through the glass. He hates when I go outside and he can still see me.

    Here’s to a great week and that all appointments go smooth!

    Viki, I know on clothes! I’m frustrated that I have the money and can’t find anything I’ll be comfortable in. It’s even harder (in my view) being short — I look for clean simple lines, the ruffles and flounces don’t work on me. Anyway, I’m working on it.

    I’ll keep you updated on the dog walking class. I bought my volunteer shirt today.

    I like the book so far — it’s a typical plot but the characters are interesting to me.

    Now for you: I’m so sorry for the ongoing stress with the taxes. It’s bad enough having to pay then, but even worse worrying about a penalty when you’ve been trying to get it done! It’s always painful. I really hope you can get the verification you need and finally be able to put this behind you.

    Yay for BBQing! But now it’s more work for you since hubs can’t do it anymore. LOL on Spunk! Maggie is never happy if I go outside without her too. But she just quietly waits at the door. Spunk is a bit more vocal :-)

    I hope you get the notice soon that the payments are picked up soon!
