This weekend was actually pretty mellow. It started after work on Friday with a decision to go see a movie with the boys.
We'd decided up on Ice Age, merely because we knew it would make us laugh....and we were all in desperate need of a laugh.
Mot and I jumped in our vehicle to go to the theater, but we had to stop at Target first. Some people want popcorn during a movie....I crave turkey jerky.
Not that I don't love popcorn, I do.....but turkey jerky has become my new movie theater snack.
From there we headed to the movie theater....but before realized where we were going, we were pulling into the parking lot of the theater next to Target. The wrong theater. :-)
As we were pulling back OUT, we passed the boys driving in.
It seems we'd had a communications breakdown. I'd confirmed with Steve which theater we were meeting at......and he confirmed the wrong one in error.
So, if Mot hadn't driven to our theater by mistake......well.....let's just say it worked out well. :-)
After seeing the large number of children in line, we decided against Ice Age, and went to The Hangover instead. It was a good choice. Funny movie, silly humor, politically incorrect, entertaining.......
And it didn't hurt that two of the lead actors were hot.
Did I say that out loud? (hehe)
Saturday was a long day. I got up early to run at the gym (sticking with it so far, down 8 pounds this month - yeah Nej!!)....then came home, rushed around to get showered and dressed before the other gals arrived. Our quartet was getting coached in Huxley, IA (just north of Des Moines).
The coaching session went really, really, really well!!!!!
Really well. :-)
Once home, I went almost directly to bed. 2.5 hours there, then 2.5 hours back. 4 hours of singing. A run that morning.
I was bushed!!!
Inny came to our house Sunday morning. We were going to take the bikes out for a ride....but the ominous looking weather kept us from going.
That, and I didn't have a way to air up my new bullet proof tires at home. You see, they have those new fangled Presta valves.
OK, so they aren't so new fangled....I just haven't had a bike with them before. And didn't have a air pump, or adaptor to fill them at home. It usually gets done at the store.
After she left, Mot and I caught up on some DVR TV, then headed to the bike store when they opened.
Apparently, they were having their annual sale. The store isn't small, and it was PACKED with people. Packed!!!!
We picked up a bike pump, some new pedals (platform/clipless hybrid), and a small bag to put under my seat (for car keys, etc). We almost got Mot a new bike...but decided it was a little spur of the moment, and needed to do some more research.
We then headed to the bookstore (go figure...us, bookstore? no way!!!)...the grocery store...then home.
Robin and Switch were coming over to play cards, and they were due any minute.
We played a couple hands of Hand and Foot (the ladies ruled!!!)...then headed outside for some badminton.
(getting the net untangled and set up)
"Hey Robin, smile!!!"
After they left, I hopped in the shower, and Mot went upstairs to play on the computer.
We relaxed the rest of the evening. Great day!!!
