It's Monday... blah... just blah.... that's just another word for Monday. Blah.
The weekend? Not so blah, but a lot of busy.
Saturday had me driving out to meet a family that wanted a picture with their grandchildren. I was worried because it was pretty dang chilly. The high was only 42 degrees & with kids? You just never know how they will handle the cold. It's always easy for me as the photographer because I get to keep my coat, scarf, hat & fingerless gloves on... but I ask for everyone else to take off their coats & think WARM THOUGHTS. I will give it up to the kiddos. Out of 6, I think only 1 really suffered from the cold... & he was totally not even complaining - it was just a reminder to take his coat off over & over.
I was pretty happy when I was on my drive home & found gas for $2.37! It's been on the rise around us & I stopped to top off...
glad I did...
I ended up sitting in traffic for about an hour & a half - at THREE different spots on the way home.
I don't do traffic well. Like, seriously - I have panic attacks sitting in traffic. All that stop & go motion? Car Sick. That feeling of being in a place I can't get out? Yeah... I'm ready to do 2 things. 1.) Curl up in a ball in my car & cry or 2.) get out of my car & run down the middle of the road screaming. Both perfectly normal reactions to traffic.
I stopped & picked us up some dinner - glad to get out of the car for a minute - & then headed home... only to leave as soon as I got there to go see my mom & dad & to see my nieces. They just got back from Florida & I wanted to see everyone. I've been so busy that I haven't got to see what was going on with them lately so off I went....
with strict instructions to be home by 8:30 from Ricky.
Why? Because one of the twins LOVES basketball... & hates UK... & Ricky knows if I watch the game, UK usually looses & he said he knew she would make me watch some of the game, jinxing the game. Geez. Anxiety much?
But I was a good wife & came home & started editing pictures while the game was on.
A lot of whooping & hollering going on... a lot of "Are you STUPID?"... a lot of running up & down the steps. I just go into my own world & shake my head yes or no when Ricky runs up to tell me something. I know how this all works when UK plays. Just keep my mouth shut.
Ricky came up & was like, "We're out of the game... no way we can come back... I can't even watch" & he stayed in my room with me & laid on the couch. Poor Harvey was a nervous wreck with Ricky yelling & crawled up on his chest & just laid... like, "its going to be OK dad"... it was so funny. But Ricky said, Let me go see how its going to end. He goes back down stairs & I hear "YEEEAAHAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH"... & hear him running back up the steps.
Oh Lordy... hang in there Harvey Dent.
Before I know it, I hear Ricky running up & down the stairs screaming, WE WON!!!!
All the heart attacks.
Ricky always lets me watch the game AFTER the game. He keeps it on his DVR so he can re-watch every little thing & I do get to see parts of the game then. I guess I can't jinx things after the fact. Thank goodness.
Sunday was another busy day with our Orange Sunday where I was able to dance on stage... give me a stage & I'll dance any time...
Ricky & I went to Target for our weekly trip & then headed to a restaurant that has like 10 TV's - right in time for the UL game. I had to remind Ricky to keep his mouth shut every time UL scored & the place was full of clapping... & Ricky would be the only sole clapping when Michigan scored. I reminded him that the lesson in church was about PEACE... keeping peace instead of causing arguments... did he not pay attention?
We headed home for the rest of the game...
just in time for me to leave & go meet my next Bride & Groom. Talks of wedding over chai teas - good times.
I got home just in time to get ready for The Walking Dead Finale....
My heart is still pounding. Loved loved LOVED the finale....
|This was the point I think I basically stopped breathing|
But I'll admit, I do have a Walking Dead hangover this morning. I'm exhausted. I stayed up to watch The Talking Dead & then watched part of the encore of the show...
so yes, Blah-Day is sponsored by coffee.
So another busy weekend down... & guess what I didn't do.
You guessed it... clean the house.
So be it.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
You watch any basketball?
Was it cold in your neck of the woods?
