Weekend Update

I could use one more day of the weekend.  How about you?

Friday night, Son went with Gpa and Gma to the high school basketball game playoff.  So Daughter and I had a girls night out. We got sheets for my bed, and pick out a shower curtain and colors for the main bathroom that is getting ready to be redone.  We are going from peachy-coral colors to black, grey and white.  That will be such a difference.

Saturday, Daughter and I had eye appointments.  She is getting new sunglasses and glasses.  I am getting a new prescription for contacts.  Dr. says I may need Readers.  WHAT?  Nope, not happening yet.  I am wearing a new kind of contacts, that I hopefully can wear for a month instead of two weeks at a time.  We will see how that goes.  Then we went to ULTA and Costco.  She found these new fake finger nails that are already painted/decorated.  We heard they will stay on up to two weeks!  She has tried, but says they are hard to put on.  (She has no patience.)  She went to her boyfriend's house to help him watch his little brother, while Mom and Dad had a party in the basement.  Son had a friend spend the night.  We watched the newest Karate Kid movie with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan.  It was okay and had some cool effects, but for a die-hard Karate Kid lover, I loved the first movie more.  Much more.

Sunday, I did dishes, laundry and baked cookies.  I only have one more load of laundry to put in washer, and I'm done.  That is very good for me.  The cookies were pre-mixed, but Snickerdoodle and Macadamia/White Chocolate Chip are so yummy anyway.  And when I got to work this morning, there were Girl Scout Cookies on my desk.  Everyone will be happy tonight when I get home.    Tonight we will order Son's birthday cake from Cold Stone Creamery.  He is fourteen tomorrow and loves to get Gummy Bears on top of his cake.  Weird kid.

Okay, I did watch the Oscars.  Anne Hathaway was so bubbly and full of fun.  James Franco...not so much.  I loved Kirk Douglas.  I thought he was the best.  At his age, he can do what he wants and we are all just in awe of him.  Anne's last dress, that blue plastic shower curtain thing, was a pretty color, but a bad choice.  Jennifer Hudson, Natalie Portman, Hallee Berry all looked beautiful.  Sandra Bullock?  My husband's first words when he saw her was..."Red lips do not become her."  Mine were, "They forgot to do her hair."  Lots of ponytails, and glitz.  That Megan Leo - Uh, good thing the show was on a delay.  Whoops!  What did you think of the Oscars?
So today I have a major headache.  I think it is sinus and the big front that is coming through our area.  I have already taken 7 Ibuprofen and 1 Aleve.  Maybe food will help, but so far, it hasn't helped much.

The rest of my week is crazy busy at home.  Hopefully not so much at work.  Have a great day!


  1. You had a busy weekend! My husband wears the 30 day contacts and loves them! It's so nice not having to worry about that everyday. Good luck on the headache :(

  2. So glad you gave the Oscar update. I sort of cheated, watched a few minutes, and have been telling everyone I watched it. It's these blog with the terrific recaps that permit me to perpetuate the lie a little longer :)

  3. Mmm, I love Snickerdoodle cookies.
