This weekend wasn’t a big exciting weekend…but it was a good weekend and I woke up smiling this morning….so that’s got to be something.
Friday: Worked, well, sat at work and tried to figure out things to do to pass the time. Sad, sad day on my time sheet as far as billable hours were concerned. Half of the office was on vacation…even if there were things to be done, no one was there to do them. Got new brakes on the Little Red Rocket…and I mean the whole nine yards, rotors, pads, and even wheel cylinders. WOO HOO! I can stop like all the other cars now. Stopped at Target on the way home and got a sweet new flat iron (it was needed, new haircut+ cracked flat iron = need to new flat iron) and I got some Brita filters too (I know how to party AND hydrate). The filters were on sale AND I got a $5 Target gift card that had a cute hologram of a puppy rolling over on it. I also got a cute flowered fabric purse I had had my eyes on for awhile that was 30% off. Went home, watched some “What Not to Wear” and fell asleep on the couch. Yeah, I’m a party girl, what can I say.
Saturday: Was awoken by Noodle kisses. Got up, walked him, took a shower and met Ear Injury at DSW for the beginning of what would be Shop-a-palooza 2007! DSW was having their end of summer sale (don’t ask) and before Ear injury even got there, I had picked up 2 purses, both under $15 with retail prices of $85 and $150! One was a b-day gift for my mom….she’ll love it. Then I found the elusive dark brown flip flops I had been searching for. Born’s also….for like $25!!! YES! We hit Old Navy , and we hit it HARD! There were two shirts that I had wanted for awhile that were both on sale for $8. I also got a cute babydoll sweater that can take me into fall and a little black dress that will ROCK once I get this tan in better order. Then we stopped at Target for a bit (got some cute earrings and a tasty beverage) before arriving at the mall. We didn’t go THAT many places in the mall, but it seemed like we were there FOREVER! After failing at our quest to get a pretzel—stupid directory—we both but ourselves off and went home. We won’t even get into the crazy kiosk lady who was doing the full court press to get us to buy this nail buffer. I wonder how that one thumbnail is looking…… I went home and passed out for 2 hours. I was BEAT! I think I pulled a muscle carrying all my packages, or it might have been the 38lb thing of kitty litter (where’s a boy when you need him!?) After the nap I went to dinner with Pops, got my first pair of Crocs ( I LOVE THEM!) and we went to see Ratatouille. That movie was really cute and, as most pixar things are, really well done. I was so tired when I got home that I fell asleep on top of my covers, in my clothes, including my Crocs (which had been put on in response to the scary blisters I got from the super cute skimmers I had worn to dinner). I woke up Sunday am with my furry friends all around me, the kitchen and bedroom light on and fully clothed—and NOT hungover, interesting.
Sunday: I was all rested from the previous day’s festivities and it wasn’t bloody hot outside, so Noodle and I hit the dog park. There were a surprising number of dogs there for 9:30 on Sunday morning, or at least is surprised me. I don’t see 9:30 Sunday morning outside of my house very often. Noodle took off like a bolt of lightning when we got there and went to town. Lots of butt sniffing and licking. He ran with the pack for awhile, then started hitting up the other humans. He loves the attention of humans. This big black dog kept running up and knocking Noodle over and rolling around with him. Noodle was NOT amused. He squealed and ran over to me every time. Poor little Mama’s Boy! Once he stopped running around, I decided to take his dirty butt home. My normally white dog was now FILTHY!!!! So we got home and he instantly got in the bath. He was so worn out that he didn’t seem to mind the bath at all. He even fell asleep while I was blow drying him. Once he was all taken care of, I went to the pool. No one was there. I had the joint completely to myself. I hopped on my hot pink floaty and read for awhile. Then I got sleepy and decided to float, sleep and tan at the same time—I love to multi-task! All was well and good until the heavens opened up and raindrops so big that they hurt started to pelt me. I ran under a tree with all my stuff trying to decide if it was a 5 minute storm. Once it thundered, I decided it wasn’t. I scurried into the house. I opened the patio door to listen to the rain and fell asleep with Noodle and Kobe (Fergus was in his own bed) on the couch for a lovely Sunday afternoon nap. Didn’t get much sun time, but I have Wednesday and all next weekend to make up for it. Went to dinner with my Pops at Las Palmas, then went home, did some laundry and called to see what was up with my internet (I had been unable to get online at home for 4 days…I had myspace withdrawls BIG TIME!) Come to find out, the ONE button I hadn’t touched in attempts to fix things myself was the magic button. LAME! But all’s well that ends well. I caught up on Mr. T’s life—got himself an iPhone, and responded to emails, etc…. Then I watched 4 “Gay Robot” clips on YouTube—which were really funny and went to bed, IN MY BED!!!
It’s dead at work this week, but that’s alright I guess. Not sure how I’ll pass the time, but I’m sure I will. Cheesecake Factory for a b-day tonight, pre-trivia. Party tomorrow night. Wednesday, lots of pool time….then who knows what for the rest of the week. There better be some smooching with cute boys this week…..I’m just saying.
