RECAP




I always look forward to Friday afternoons. It just feels different. We usually either go to dinner or go to a movie. A lot of times we do both. This past Friday we went to see Date Night. I was so happy that we did because #3 and the man of the house wanted to go see Clash of the Titans. We take turns picking out the movies and since it was two against one I just knew I was going to be sitting at a movie I didn't really want to see. Anyways, Date Night was really good. It was funny. #3 leaned over during the movie and said that she was glad we decided to see it, so it passed with her too. 

This is what we left at home...... Bubbles in charge of the puppies! I am not sure if he is sitting with them out of kindness or if he taunting them with his freedom.  Either way, Charlie and Lola really didn't look too concerned or jealous.








Saturday morning was a disaster for me! #3 was taking the ACT and she was not happy at all that we had signed her up to take it. The test site was far away.... on another planet.... so we even had to get up extra extra early to allow time to get there. The man of the house took her but from there he had to go to a class all day, so I was to pick her up and get her to her soccer game. I left the house in plenty of time to drive the 25 miles to get her, but realized about five miles away from home that I had not brought my purse. I had my arms full of soccer equipment when I left my house so I didn't realize that I didn't have it. I had no money except for the change in the ashtray and my low fuel light had just come on. I also didn't have my license.  I had 50 miles to go before empty so at some point I would have to get gas. I called home and had #1 look for my purse and she didn't find it. I told her to quickly jump into her car and bring me some money and her credit card. While I waited for her, #3 called to say she was finished and standing "all alone" in front of the school.  She was at a school that was literally out in the middle of nowhere.  So then I starting  imagining all sorts of bad things, started to panic and called the man of the house. Luckily he was just starting a lunch break and was close enough to #3 that he could go get her and meet me somewhere. #1 finally showed up and I took her wallet, filled up my car and finally was on my way. I called the theater to see if a purse had been turned in from the previous night, but nothing had. I then called back home and had #1 "carefully" search for it. THANK GOODNESS - she found it under some towels on a chair in my room. 

The soccer team ended up losing their game and I got sunburned...... forgot my sunscreen too.

Saturday night, the hubs and I went out to eat.  We are going to Napa next week and we talked about our trip and made plans.  We are going on a private tour one day and we have to tell our driver what five wineries we would like to visit and we only know of two so far. We also are doing a hot air ballon ride one morning and I cannot wait! I am excited about our trip, but getting everything settled at home before we leave is really a hard job.  There will plenty of more about the trip later!!

Sunday, I stayed home while #3 and her dad went to an out of town soccer game. (Yes, that is all we do!) I was supposed to go shopping and get somethings for the trip, but I never made it past the laundry. 
So that is on my list of things to do this week. 

Yep, boring post. I am struggling with it today.

I high school I used to put like .75 cents in my tank at a time. I don't think that would buy anything now!

You are living my life...I have 3 kids playing on 4 soccer teams...high school varsity, high school varsity and JV and middle school soccer....I am going to meet myself in the road someday...I had one taking the ACT on Saturday morning as well...my biggest problem was that they wouldn't allow the kids to bring a snack...I am wondering how in the world you can measure what a teenager knows when their blood sugar has bottomed out...hope y'alls experience was better than ours...it was a waste of time, money, energy and the last Saturday of Spring Break....grrrrrr.....
