Okay, I really feel that I’m getting the hang of this blog thing. I remember to tag the post, and the last couple of blogs I even remember to categorize! It’s the little things that make me happy.
My plans for this past weekend got cancelled. I was supposed to go with a girlfriend to help her shop for her wedding dress. It didn’t happen, but they did file a “certificate of informal marriage” (Common Law here in Texas) and it declared they’ve been married since February, so now instead of a wedding, they’re thinking just having a party in the spring. I am pretty sure that the little information I do have on this is more than enough, but apparently it involves and ex-wife and kids. But, she changed her name and status to Married on FB, so, you know, that made it really real.
The point – I had a free weekend! Mom called me Friday night, they needed our help unloading stuff at my grandmother’s house, what time do I pick up Mr. T? “7 pm.” “Okay, since I need his help tomorrow too, see if he wants to spend the night with us.”
Score! I picked up Mr. T, ran home and packed his supper (I’d pick up a take n’ bake pizza) and he threw some stuff in a bag, we ran to Grammy Skeeter’s house, and he left with mom and dad and I went home, alone. I sat down and had some pizza and a Lime-a-Rita!
Yet again, I am coming back to the point. I woke up Saturday, just me and Shorty (our dog). I had some coffee, I had some breakfast and by 9 am I was bored silly. I check FB, Pinterest, even WordPress in an attempt to alleviate the boredom.
In the end, I looked at the calendar and realized that it was my only free weekend from now until forever. It was the only weekend that I was home. So, I took advantage of it.. Yes, it’s too early, way too early, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet… But alas, it was now or never…
