Mood: party time!
Now Playing: "Swiper no swiping! Swiper NO swiping!"
Well, as I mentioned Friday we were supposed to get the ol' tattoos - myself getting 3 Forget-me-nots (one for each kid) and one tiny unopened bud (for the baby we lost) and my husband getting a freakin' bull head. (Hey, at least I talked him out of getting one that's snorting. Ugh. Even I'm not that redneck.) But there was a 30 minute wait at Applebee's and by the time we got out the place was closed. *sigh* How disappointing. So we came home and had really loud "the kids are outta the house" sex. Gotta love that kind.
Saturday I slept till 10:30!! I honestly do not know when the last time I slept that late was. Even if the husband (on the oh so rare occasion) gets up with the kids on a weekend, he's still sending them in to get me up by 8:30. Paul had left for the house at 6:30 and I obviously slipped into a coma shortly after that. But man, did I feel rested! For the first time in a long time I felt like I'd had enough sleep. Mom watched all 5 grandkids till that evening. I picked mine up around 4:30 and we went to a wedding shower. Then spent 3 damn hours in WalMart. Agh I hate that place. Babs over at The Conversation Station spurred off a ranting session about the big WM and lemme tell you, there are a lot of people out there who hate that place as much as I do! But you wouldn't know it because I'm there every freakin' day and for many many moons at a time. They must pipe something into the air in there that keeps you in there...Yeah, I'm sure of it. Something so incredibly addictive that we can't leave in a short amount of time and we find ourselves coming back again and again. But I digress...
Sunday my mom, sister, myself and all 5 kids took off for Branson, MO to go to Silver Dollar City. We spent the entire day there and the kids had a blast. Kady rode her first big roller coaster and loved it! My little thrill-seeker. We shopped, ate, rode rides and walked ourselves plumb tired. The weather was perfect and the traffic wasn't altogether bad, seeing as Branson is famous for the stop-and-go traffic on the "strip". All in all we had a pretty good weekend.
