Quick Weekend

We had a nice, although short weekend.

Friday night we did not go out to eat so we could stay home and pass out candy. I felt like crap due to the flu shot I had that day. I was surprised because last year I didn't have a reaction. It even took me a moment to figure it out. I thought I was coming down with something. Anyway, at least I got that out of the way for the year.

Saturday Marie and I went to breakfast and then to exchange a faucet that I bought for the kitchen and to look at stoves! Oh, this kitchen remodel has been taking over my weekends for the past month or so! I'm not complaining by any means but I will be glad when it's all done! Anyway, I found a stove that I really liked and Rich and I went back later and bought it. Then we went out to see his mom. All of his sisters were there and it was a nice visit.

In the evening I went to the grocery store and we watched 50 First Dates! I love that movie! Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are so cute together! Anyway, it was a fairly early night. I tell ya, these wild weekends are killing me!!

Sunday we cleaned up outside and wrapped the grill in plastic for the winter. I cleaned out all the dead flowers from the barrels and cut back the rose bushes and the clematis. A couple of the kitties managed to get out into the backyard because I did not latch the doorwall screen. They were pretty scared though because they're really indoor kitties and never go outside. As soon as Rich walked out there they ran back inside! Poor babies. Maybe next spring we'll build some sort of enclosure for them to go outside in. I know they would love it.

We went to dinner at Don and Linda for my brother Tom's 50th birthday which is on Wednesday. That is about all for the weekend now it's back to work today! It was nice that it was light out coming in this morning.

I need to bring my camera to work because the trees in the courtyard are gorgeous right now!

LATER: I will be so freaking glad when tomorrow is over and they stop playing these political ads!!!

Sounds like a good weekend to me. Mine was hectic too, but I survived.

Please do take your camera so we can see the trees. I'll bet they're gorgeous.

I'll be glad when this election thing is over too!

Reading your entry reminded me of everything I have to do (outdoors and in), but lack the motivation to get started. I just want to hide under the covers!
