Weekend Update

Saturday started out kind of slow. Slept in a little, read a book and then just did a few things around the house. At 3:30, Beth and Kevin left for work.

A little after 5:00, Andy and I went next door for Alex's graduation party. They had a pig roast, and surprisingly, Andy liked it! It was good. We left the party about 6:45 and waited for Beth to get home from work to go back over. We went back over somewhere around 9:30. Andy enjoyed it more the second time because one of his friends was there. Beth enjoyed talking to a few people she hasn't seen in a while. I sat at a table with Donna, Nancy and Maureen. About 11:30, Beth left to pick Kevin up. After they got him, Beth and Kevin came over to the party. At about 1:45, Beth and I finally left the party, with Kevin and Andy coming home about 5 to 10 minutes later. Just as we were shutting things up for the night, we heard a load screech and then a bang. We all went running down the street afraid that it was someone who had left the party at Donna's. It was not, but it was a man who had been drinking and ran into a parked truck. The man ended up telling the police that he had been drinking alcohol in mixed drinks and he has no insurance. I'm sure he was very sorry about his mistake once he sobered up! We didn't get home from the scene of the accident until almost 3:00! I was supposed to make a birthday cake for Mother and Andy, but I was just too exhausted and it was too late.

On Sunday, Beth and I went to Meijer to get a cake and ice cream, along with birthday cards. I wasn't able to get Andy as much as I wanted, but explained to him that I would get him more once I get paid on the 15th. I will get Mother something then too. We did have a cookout of hamburgers and hot dogs. It was a beautiful day! After we ate, Andy opened his gifts and Mother opened her cards. Then we had cake and ice cream.

We watched The Next Food Network Star and the Food Network Challenge: Villian Cakes last night on the Food Network. They were both good. Now we are looking forward to watching Hell's Kitchen tonight.

I'm sure glad the weekend is here! I had been thinking it was one day ahead all week, which made for a really long week.

Yesterday I got my hair cut. My hair was past my shoulders, but know it is above my shoulders and is "spikey" in back. I'll try to post before and after pictures tomorrow. I went to a new stylist with Jennifer, and I really like the way she did my hair. Our appointments were at 7:30, and I didn't get home until afte 11:00! It took longer because Jennifer got her hair colored. I only got a cut. I'm going to call and make an appointment for highlights.

Tonight Beth took Andy and I to dinner at Family Affair. I saw Steve and Connie (Steve & Tim's parents) there. We talked for a bit, and then I joined the kids at the table so we could order. Then as they were leaving, they stopped by our table and talked some more. It was nice to see them, since it's been quite a while since the last time. I've known them since I was in grade school. Their oldest son, Steve, was one of my first boyfriends. Their other son, Tim, was one of my boyfriends in grade school too. Steve and Tim are also a couple of Russ' best friends.

I checked Andy's grades on line tonight and he is passing to 8th grade! YEAH!!! I have already warned him that next year if he has any missing assignments, he will not be playing video games during the week. Hopefully that is incentive enough for him.

Well, as soon as Beth gets home from picking up Kevin, I'm heading to bed. I have to go shopping in the morning for Andy's birthday present. Beth is going with me. In the afternoon tomorrow, Beth has to work, and Andy and I are going to Alex's graduation party. I hope to also do some scrapbooking tomorrow.

Got my car back!!!

I was so glad to finally get my car back yesterday afternoon! It's awful to be without one. It was almost $280 to fix it, but at least it's running again.

Well my daughter Beth got her hair done last night. She ended up getting her hair dyed a dark brown, which is a big change from her normal blonde. It doesn't look bad though, and her hair looks really healthy. I get my hair cut tomorrow evening and I'm not sure what I'm going to do. My hair is now just past my shoulders, and I'm thinking of getting it cut shorter again. Something fun, but yet professional.

After Beth got home from getting her hair cut, we (Andy, Beth, Kevin and me) all went to the fireworks store because Andy and Kevin wanted some more fireworks. Andy got bottle rockets, aircraft carriers (boats with planes with firecrackers) and "little dynamite" firecrackers that can go in water. Kevin got the same, and also some strobe light things. They were really bright! On our way home, we picked up subs, pizza and bread from Marco's for dinner.

Today is Andy's first day out of school. He sure is glad that it's over! Now he gets to stay up late at night and sleep in the next morning.

Planted Flowers

Well, I finally got my flowers planted today. Last year I bought the flowers, but never got them planted. My goal was to not let that happen this year, so I'm glad I met that goal.

Now I need to start scrapbooking more so I can get caught up. I have a TON of supplies, now I just need to use them. lol

I'm hoping to hear about my car tomorrow, since it broke down last Thursday. I sure hope it doesn't cost too much to fix it.

I'll try to update my blog more often. Hopefully I can update it every day.
