This weekend

Friday we ate dinner with my brother (Rickie). When we got home Jason washed his bike and I got on the computer. Jason was going to a bike & car show in Malvern. I decided that I was going and put my car in the show instead of working.

Saturday we got up and stopped by Crackerbox by Western Pines. For some reason I decided to check the weather channel on my phone. From about Little Rock north it showed a bunch of rain. After Jason saw the picture he decided that we shouldn't go. We then went and had breakfast at Lena's. I went to work and Jason went home. While I was hard at work Jason was having fun playing the Wii. About 4 I called Jason and he come up to help move my desk around. We ended up eating dinner in Star City at the bbq place with my mother and Rickie. As always the food was excellent. Where else can you go and order: 2 appetizers, a full slab of ribs, a skillet dinner, 2 deserts and 2 drinks and it only cost $42.00? Then Jason and I went to Wal-Mart to buy a new game for the Wii. We ended up buying the gun and the Trophy Buck hunting game. We also bought a cd/dvd book shelf. The hunting game is MUCH harder than what we thought. We ended up playing bowling, baseball and golf. I won the bowling, got lucky on baseball and Jason whooped my a.. on golf. We ended staying up till 11:30 p.m. Jason and I NEVER stay up that late. I guess the kid in us is coming out.

Sunday we slept until 8:30 a.m. and then I got up to make a grocery list. We ate lunch at Young's, went grocery shopping and then come back home. We wasn't going to do ANYTHING but we ended up sweeping/vacuuming the house and moping the kitchen floor. I am so fortunate that I have a husband that helps in every aspect around the house. We ended up watching the end of the Nascar race (Kurt Bush is a lucky s.. of a b....). My mom had to drop her car off at Earl's Transmission close to Star City so we picked her up. Rickie had invited us over for dinner. I made guacomole and he grilled hamburgers. Again, everything was sooooo good. Now we are at home and Jason is on the Wii (he has played it more than I have and it was his b-day present to me).

Next week at work is a short week at work. Jason and I leave July 4th and head to Venice, LA to inshore (Saturday) and offshore (Sunday) fish. We are staying at the cabin Monday to put up the fish (hopefully) and rest.

I really liked this weekend. I got to work (needed to go back in) and enjoyed some time just doing nothing with Jason. One of these days I am going to realize that work is not everything. Until then though.........

We didn't get to mow yesterday morning becuase the grass was too damp. The yard we mow Jason bags the front & back. When the grass is damp it will clog his catcher...I went to work and then we went to LR with Rickie (my brother).

We went to 7th Street Tattoo first. I had 1 1/2 hour wait but it was worth it. My wrist tattoo is completed (will have pics soon). Rickie says he I failed to tell him about that portion of the trip...I thought I did. I have to remember he is turning 49 in December and his memory must be going. Needless to say he wasn't real happy.

Next we headed out to The Fresh Market. By now it was 5:30 and I am starving. It was like I wanted to buy everything I saw. We ran to Academy real quick for Rickie to look for new shirts. He came out empty handed but Jason got a wireless cooking thermostat he has been wanting.

We headed to Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse. The sushi was great, the soup sucked and the salad was a bit better. Rickie and I had the filet minon with fried rice and man was it good. We then went to my mostest favorite store BEST BUY!!! I got what I thought was SAW, SAW II, SAW III and SAW IV. What I got was two of SAW II and none of SAW III. Oh well. We looked for a WII (Jason is wanting to buy me one for my birthday) but they had none in stock. Besides their price is the same as our Wal-Mart. I got the new Madonna, The Offspring and Three Days Grace. I've listed to Three Day's Grace and will listen to Madonna tomorrow. The Offspring is for Jason.

We made it home around 11:30. We got up at 7:30 a.m. to go grocery shopping. We made it over to Mrs. Collins to mow around 9:30 a.m. and got through about 12:45 p.m. I am an unusual person. My soul is most at peace when I am either in a boat on the water or mowing. Tonight we had my mom, Rickie and Ked (neice) over for dinner. Since Ked will not be able to come to dinner Wednesday night (my birthday dinner) I decided to have something tonight. All was good.

Well it's off to watch SAW...........gosh I love those movies!

Gotta Get Regular

The title should not be taken literally. I gotta get on a regular routine for posting on my blog, so starting tonight I am going to try to do post at least every other day. Since I am at work from 7 am to 5 pm (at least 3 days a week) I will probably do my posting in the evening after dinner.

Jason and I are mowing Mrs. Collins yard in the morning and then going to LR with my brother in the afternoon. We are going to start off at 7th Street Tattoo so that I can have my wrist tattoo finished out. Then it's off to my favorite store BEST BUY!!! We'll do a little more shopping at Fresh Market and then it's off to eat dinner at either Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse or Bone Fish Grill. My birthday is Wednesday so Jason says I get to decide.

I am going to try not to go to work on Sunday....but we will see how that goes.
