Weekend Recap

Of course, the weekend started with Halloween on Friday. I got off work a couple hours early so I could drive to my parent's house. That night, I got out the old alien costume and went trick or treating with my nephews - Big pup and Little pup. As much as I wanted to get a ton of Halloween candy, I was too nervous to try and pull it off. Oh yeah, I'm a grownup, I guess I could just buy my own.

Saturday was a lot of fun. I went to Big pup's last soccer game of the season. The kids got medals and there was a picnic afterwards. That's where we found out that the Boy Scouts were having a fundraiser - plane rides! Since my sister and her husband had already left for Texas for a Nascar race, and my dad said no way was he getting on one, it was up to me to go with them. I was kind of nervous, these were little planes with 2 seats up front and a little back seat. Although, I think my biggest fear was that Little pup would freak out while in the air - it was his first time (and I was with him - yay!), his brother did it 2 years ago. But he had a good time - we all did.

I drove back Saturday night since I worked on Sunday. The store has started playing Christmas music. I think I might be the only one enjoying it this early. Went out for Mexican food after work and then to Walmart for weekly groceries. Does anyone else's Walmart have Rock Band 2 set up? I think my fudge pops melted while waiting for Billy to stop playing drums. He played 2 songs and was going to play a 3rd, but thankfully, some kids had started walking toward us. There's no telling how long we would have been there if they hadn't.

So it was a great weekend. I'm already looking forward to the next one so I can relax a little and do absolutely nothing.

Everyone have a good weekend?

For your sake, I am very glad Little pup did not freak out in the air! Nascar was fun but I need another weekend to do nothing!

I LOVVVVVVVVVVVVE Christmas music and if people wouldn't think I was totally bonkers, I'd listen to it ALL YEAR LONG! hehehehe There is a HUGE rule in our house that has yet to be broken: From Thanksgiving on NO MUSIC OTHER THAN CHRISTMAS MUSIC can be played. I'd start it earlier, but I have to respect my hubby's love of other music. lol
