WHAT A WEEKEND






What a great Saturday it was here for "me". Yes, I say me. Being a mom of 4, it's very rare that I have a "me" day. My friend, Barb, scored some free tickets to a private showing of Sex In the City. What a great movie!!!! I used to watch the show when we would get free HBO. I've also been able to catch it in reruns. The movie did not disappoint. I went with my friends Barb & Terri and there was an extra ticket so Elizabeth (my daugther in college--which is so weird saying) went. I loved it and will definately purchase it when it comes out on DVD to add to my "chick flick" collection. There was some sex scenes and some language after all it was an "R" rated movie. Stuff like that doesn't bother me though. I would have been disappointed if they didn't have it in there. After all, it's Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte! Charlotte is still my favorite character. She is so funny. I even learned that there really is a website where you can rent designer purses. How funny is that????


Later that evening, we had tickets to the Tampa Bay Rays verses Chicago White Sox. I am a baseball fan. I love going to baseball games. Unfortunately, the Rays stadium is not close at all--it takes about 1.5 hours to get to their stadium. However, after Saturday nights game, Trace Adkins sang. So, for Mother's Day, Steve had purchased tickets for our entire family to go. Elizabeth wasn't able to make it because of all her graduation parties. So, Greg took a buddy. Oh my heck, can Trace Adkins put on a good show! He is one of my all time favorite singers (George Strait is my other favorite). It was awesome. I still think he deserved to win The Apprentice. As I mentioned in a previous blog entry, he played for a charity that really affects my own family. His daughter suffers from food allergies and he played for a charity that raises awareness of how severe allergies can be. Marks suffers from an allergy to peanuts, tree nuts and eggs. Hopefully, there will be a cure for these allergies some day. Thanks, Trace.
Yesterday, after a quick trip to Wally World, I just relaxed. I did some laundry and watched a very disappointig NASCAR race. I eventually turned it off because I didn't want to see a certain racer win--which he did. Bleck. I spent last night sorting my photos so that I can start doing what I love--SCRAPBOOKING! With school out on Wednesday, I can finally relax and actually get a few pages completed.
Today, is just a typical Monday. When I woke up this morning, I couldn't even remember what day it was. For some reason, I have it in my head that today is Tuesday. DUH. Greg is home today since he exempted his exams. So, I have not one but two teenagers laying around. But, they have a nice "to do" list. The others go a half day on Wednesday and then they are all home for the summer. Let's hope it's a good one.
Have a wonderful Monday!

I'm so jealous that you got to see Trace perform! Yes, he should have won the Apprentice! Donald screwed up on that one!

I wanna see that movie, too.....hopefully soon. I also watched S&TC all the time & wish HBO would bring it back!
