Surprisingly enough, I don't think I got my camera out once this weekend. Strange, eh?
Friday: Mot came and took me to lunch, and then left for North Platte, NE. Turkey hunting with his brother. I did quite allot of nothing Friday night. My head was pounding and my cough just wouldn't cease and desist.
Saturday: I woke up at my usual time, no thanks to my cats. Argh. :-) I watched some TV, ate some breakfast...and then headed out in search of tile for my kitchen walls. I hadn't even arrived at the first store, when my cell phone rang. It was Steve and Danny.
The boys: Whatcha' doin'?
Nej: I'm on a tile quest. Why? What's up?
The boys: We found some tile for you. Are you hungry?
Nej: I am! You did?
The boys: Yep! Meet us at Jimmy Johns and we'll show it to you.
The tile is perfect, of course. :-) So we ate our sandwiches, then headed out in our separate ways.
I headed for Home Depot to buy the tile...and then to Wally World for some misc shopping.
I had a cart with 10 or so items in it. I say HAD, because I couldn't deal with the stupidity of people shopping at Wally World. So I left my cart, and everything in it, in the middle of an aisle and found the nearest exit...post-haste.
I found everything I needed at Target, and then some!!!! Everywhere I go, I find these little things for our kitchen. I can't wait until it's completed!!! :-)
We were told that cooking oils could stain our counters, so my find for the day was a tray to put our oil on. I found it, of all places, in the bathroom section of the store. :-)
Mom and Bug arrived at my house not long after I got home. They were bored...and hungry. So we went out for pizza. While eating, I decided I wanted to hit Bed Bath and Beyond for a couple of organizational things for the house. Bug was less than thrilled (as any 12 year old nephew should be).
After shopping (we hit a few more stores) we stopped at Dairy Queen for some empty calories!
Once back at my house, we popped Twilight in the DVD player, and the three of us relaxed on the couch. It really wasn't that bad. It didn't drag, and kept us entertained. And isn't that what movies are for?
Sunday: I woke up at 10 am. Yes, you heard me. TEN. A.M. Holy smokes!!!!!
I had a to do list the length of my arm....of which I put a hefty dent into. Cleaned main floor of house from top to bottom...removing all layers of drywall dust from EVERYTHING! Started some laundry, and tried (yes, tried) putting up the new blinds on the sliding glass door.
I also figured out a way to take advantage of the metal containers I got for our spices. Currently, the pantry has a shelf dedicated to a million and three spices. The jars are all just thrown on the shelf...and any time I organize them, the chef (Mot) manages to get rid of an organization within minutes of cooking one meal. :-)
While World Market was going out of business, I got a steal on some of the magnetic canisters. And while shopping Saturday night, I figured out what I was going to do with them.
(ignore the blue tape...the glue still wasn't dry) :-)
Mot got home (with 2 turkeys for the freezer) at about 6:00. I made dinner...
Wait...before you freak out, let me mention is was a frozen bag meal from Bertolli. Nothing that actually resembled cooking!!!!
And we sat down to watch some TV and relax.
