Boy, am I glad last week is over. It was hectic and jampacked with things. From Houston to an open house. I literally ran my legs off. There was no need for exercise since I got it all in in five days.

So Friday night, Satuday and Sunday I took some time off to recharge. Oh, I still had some things to do with the contest but for the most part, I was lazy. And it felt great.

Friday night after the open house, the kiddo and I stopped at McDonald’s and got dinner and I treated myself to a Starbucks. Then Man and I sat on the couch and watched our Legends of the Seeker show. I finally crashed around 11. I was exhausted after a long, hard day of major party prep.

On Saturday, we slept in a little. The kiddo had a basketball game, so we went to that and watched the boys play. Man went, too, and afterward we headed to On The Border for a late lunch. I loved stuffing myself with Mexican food. 😀 We all went to see Tooth Fairy after and as we walked into the theater, we were handed a survey for Universal Pictures. It was actually a pretty good movie with some laugh out loud moments. And the kid liked it too.

Went to Sears afterward and I patted the Kenmore Elite washers and dryers, which cracked up the salesman. He was actually not too pushy and gave me a little booklet comparing all the different models. So I read over that and drooled. I SO want a pair of those!

Then we headed over to WalMart for some munchies and the movie True Lies (we’d seen part of it on AMC a few days ago but it’s just not the same all cut up and with commercials). When we got home, the kid went to his room to play Wii and we watched our movie. I forgot how funny that movie was in parts but it also seemed a little dated. Made in 1994, showing Windows 3.1 and people smoking in hotel lobbies. Those were the days!

Anyway… Sunday was a total lazy day for me. I only left the house once and that was to put gas in the car. I did laundry and upgraded my Quicken and got organized for filing my 2009 taxes. And then I even wrote a little while we watched the Saints-Vikings game (great game, too!). And I pretty much did nothing much all day. It was glorious. I made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, too. 😀

And that’s about all I have to report at this time. Hopefully this week will be calmer. I’m off to work and school.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
