So that happened…

It’s been an interesting weekend.

Friday I had to give Miss Kitty her first bath. I usually don’t believe in giving cats baths except in the case of dire flea or bowel emergencies. Let’s just say she doesn’t have fleas and leave it at that. So into the bath she went. She was not happy. I was not happy. It’s been years since I had to bathe a cat, and unfortunately I forgot an important component, a cup for rinsing off. So I had to dunk. It was traumatic, but thankfully I only had to really wash half of her.

The look of betrayal.

Saturday started out pretty great. We took the car for her 100,000 mile checkup. Everything came out well, which is good because we were worried about the steering. While we were there, Jason test drove a Fusion hybrid. He really liked it! We’re not in the market for anything new since we just got the car paid off last week (!!!). But it was really fun to try out something new. And the sales guy was super mellow and didn’t pressure us at all. We also looked around the lot and Jason found his dream Mustang.

We went shopping around a little and I found a fabulous grey sweater and a couple other things. I really don’t like shopping much and hardly ever find anything I like and that fits, so that was pretty exciting. Weird buying sweaters in almost 90 degree weather though.

We had Costco hot dogs/ swirly frozen yogurt lunch. Lunch for two for under $5, we’re cheap dates 🙂 And of course we had to pose with the huge stuffed animals.

Then we went to Bedner’s to look at pumpkins and maybe do a hay ride. I got one picture before things started going downhill.

We went down to the pumpkin patch. It was muddy and the ground was uneven. I got one of my feet stuck in the mud and down I went. My knee went one way and my leg went the other way. I could feel it pop out of place. I got it back in, thank goodness.

So we went to the ER to have it x-rayed to make sure nothing was broken. Let’s just say it was not the best experience and I will be making phone calls tomorrow. I am beyond livid at a couple of things that happened while I was there. But I’m not going into that. Keeping things on the positive side, most of the staff was very kind, most especially the security guard in the ER. She saw that I couldn’t walk well and brought me a wheelchair to the parking lot. She brought me ice packs and was generally awesome. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how rare that is 🙂

When we finally got home, Jason went out to shoot the moon. Pretty great right? (I stole this from his blog).

I have a few more pictures from this weekend, but I’m pretty tired so I think I’ll hold off on them tomorrow.


Just some random stuff from the past week or so…

Saturday we went bowling for charity with some people from Jason’s company. The proceeds benefitted Junior Achievement. I can’t say I was super excited to go initially. I’m a terrible bowler. So terrible that the last time I bowled I only scored a 12. And the guy from the bowling alley asked if I needed bumpers… also this was in front of my FIL, so that made it even more embarrassing for some reason.

We ended up having a really good time. As soon as we walked in and were doing introductions, one man shook my hand and said “Your husband is one of the smartest people I know”. That just made me grin because he is totally one of the smartest people I know too… and I know a ton of smart people 🙂

We brought the new camera, so when we weren’t bowling, we were taking pictures. I forgot to do my usual “I have a blog and do scrapbooking and such so do you mind if I plaster your face all over the internet?” speech, so I won’t put any up here. Except this one, which shows off Jason’s excellent form 🙂

 I’ve been working out here and there for the past couple of weeks. It’s crazy how out of shape I’ve gotten since I left work and I’m not walking 30,000 steps a day. I keep hearing all this junk about how working out gives you more energy. When does that start? It’s just making me tired…

I love Costco. I love Costco like some people love Target. I mostly love it for the ladies with the free samples of lobster dip. And apparently I love taking instagrams of the cart while waiting for Jason to finish looking at TV’s.

Oh and then there’s football. I love football season. Not so much for the actual football, but for the hours and hours of scrapping time. And pizza. And getting to see Jaws again. And C’mon man. And the Play 60 commercials.

Last Sunday was also National Step Family Day. Which according to Hallmark ranks right up there with National Apple Dumpling Day, National Cheeseburger Day, and Rice Krispies Day. I did talk briefly to the Little Man Sunday, so that was nice. And since today is National Talk Like A Pirate Day, I thought I’d just combine the two holidays and show a picture of my stepson as a pirate 🙂 From Feb. 2008. He’s so little!

So that’s a little bit of the random stuff going on with us. Oh and then there’s this… just because.
