I had a really good Labor Day weekend! I got to spend some time with just Mollie – and she was in a good mood. High school seems to be agreeing with her. It should be! Even if she is mine I have to say she is beautiful! I would have killed to look that good in high school. Who am I kidding I would have killed to look that good any time in my life!
LJ was home from college for the weekend too. Well not home exactly but at least at this end of the state. He came home on Sunday long enough to come have lunch with the family (his grandmother’s cooking really brings them in!) and to pick up the car we got him to replace the one he wrecked. Before you think me too indulgent I can tell you right now if he had been speeding, driving recklessly, not wearing his seatbelt, talking on the phone or God forbid drinking when this accident occurred I would not have been anxious to replace it so soon. But it was an accident. A moment’s inattentiveness, his fault, but it could have happened to anyone.
One big highlight of the weekend was my phone active! I got to have a long conversation with CeeCi. After reading her words so long I see her as the ultimate wise women. When I get to talk to her on the phone I am sure of it. And not only that, she is just so much fun!! Talking with her made me want more and lucky me – I got it!! Theresa’s call Saturday was a surprise. I loved being able to talk about all our friend our here with our any of it sounding like gossip. We talked about everyone good points and our hopes for them. And yes there was also a lot of mommy talk too.
Since I was on a roll I decided to call Grace Saturday night. Midnight my time should be 9:00 out there but I am sad to say she wasn’t home. All was not lost though; I got the machine and let me tell you Bossman sounds sexy. Grace is for sure a lucky lady!
Then to top off my phone weekend (okay it spilled over into Tuesday) I got to talk to Eva on my way home today!!! Back at school, feeling good, I was excited for her and I ALWAYS love talking to her. All accents aside there isn’t a one of you out there that I wouldn’t enjoy talking with. Although being the loyal little bulldog that she is Mollie only approves of me talking to Eva!!
I do have to report that the phone wasn’t the only thing that I had fun with this weekend. Nick got home Sunday afternoon. Monday morning as I slept late he made a surprise attack with the spatula Adam sent him! It was a sneak attack and it was really over before it began. But I was encouraged! Later that afternoon Mollie went to a friend’s house for a few hours. Hmmmm…. Would Nick notice? Yes he did!!
After telling me I still had laundry to put away. (What is it with spankers and laundry???) He decided to let me know he was not too happy with my blowing off my weekly assignments. It’s terribly hard for me to really believe he wants to hear all the stuff that rattles through my head at times. So he gently scolded me for ‘testing’ him by only writing once in August. The spanking with numerous items from our toy box was not as gentle but oh, so welcomed!! The spanking drought was broken in a wonderful way and then other wonderful things happened! And would you believe – I already have my assignment written for this week!
So folks how did you spend your Labor Day weekend??
