What a wonderful 4th we had this past weekend. I hope everyone else did.
We started off by sleeping in on Friday morning...it was wonderful...I don't think we finally emerged from the cave that is our bedroom until about 8:30am. Well, I should say that I emerged from our cave of a bedroom and Shooter remained curled up in the covers until around 10:30am. He needed it....that poor guy has been commuting 90 min each way for the last 3.5 weeks. I'm over it....and thankfully his stint ends today! Woot!! We then headed over to my BFF Di's new house for a housewarming/4th celebration. Her house is GAW-GEOUS!!!! I'd so buy it in a heartbeat...it's my kind of crib. ;-) We had fun cooking and celebrating and playing with the kitties and by 7:30pm Shooter and I were crashing. We headed home before the fireworks, but got to enjoy (NOT!!) some around our house. I'd say around 10pm we started having some fireworks pop right over top of our house! I looked out the sliding glass door and saw the flashes going off. The dogs were going bezerk! Shooter, being the responsible citizen that he is, went out to see what was going on. Needless to say, the fireworks went on until right at 11pm and then quieted down....which is a good thing!
Saturday was a lazy day for me...Shooter got up and drove across town to spend the morning/early afternoon with his friend Federovsky. Fed is a former neighbor of ours that we've kept in touch with and he and Shooter like to go to the gun range and such. So they had a great time being guys and burping and whatever guys do when they're together. Me, I stayed at home in my PJs and did laundry...lots of laundry....and ironed....lots of ironing. I had let my ironing pile really get big and needed to tackle it desperately. So....I pulled the ironing board into the bedroom and put the TV on the Food Network and steamed my way through the pile. It's so nice to not have to iron something every morning. I figure I'll get to enjoy this for another 4 days and I'll be back to the pile again. ;-) Saturday evening our friend Dusty from church put on a concert that was really awesome. He could have sang for two hours and we still would have wanted to hear more...he's got such a great voice!
Sunday....oh Sunday....yes, we taught preschool again this week. I have a whole post dedicated to that...oh my friends....it's always interesting! We stopped at the Wally World to pick up a few things and barely made it home before the storms started rolling through. I managed to get a birthday cake baked before the power started flickering. (Which NEVER happens!!) We laid down to take a nap and two hours later we awoke to sunshine and humidity that would melt your face off! Needless to say, we braved it all and went to the house o' Profs (some friends of ours who have this fab lake house) and grilled out and enjoyed a great dinner outside. Just when I was ready to fall asleep on their patio, they shake us awake and take us down for a boat ride. Whew! It was so nice out and we had a great time chatting with Les' parents and playing with their pups. By the time we got home it was close to 10pm...where does the time go, anyway?!?!?!
So today....I'm needing a long weekend to recover from my long weekend!!! ;-)
Oh...and apparently our wireless router started to bite the dust little by little over the last few weeks. Shooter went and bought us a new one on Friday and now I've been enjoying surfing the internet from all corners of the house...life is good again!!
Hope you guys are adjusting to your Monday back at work!
