October 1st, the start of the last quarter of the year. What is up with this weather? Is it hot where you are? It sure is hot here. Although I am thankful the evenings cool off. Next week is supposed to be cooler, almost fall like weather. That will be nice!
What happened to this week? Before I knew it, Friday was here and here I am finally blogging.
Our trip to Utah was great! We had a great time with the kids and grand babies and grand doggies. I must confess, I lost the grand doggies the first morning we were there. I let them out the back door. In my brain I was seeing their old house with a fenced backyard, unfortunately, this house isn’t fenced. The funny thing was the dogs even looked back at me as if saying, “Are you sure?” before they took off running the neighborhood. I’m so thankful the kids live in a circular neighborhood and the dogs didn’t get to the main road. After waking hubby up at 6:30 am our time (7:30 am Utah time), I found them on the other side of the circle, barking at the neighbors. One of them came back and once the one did, the other finally followed. By the time we got to the back of the circle, there was hubby waiting for us. LOL … yuppers, what a way to start the first day there … lose their dogs.
Since we were up bright and early, hubby and I decided to go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. It is still as yummy as we remember. Although there must be alot of sugar/carbs in the breakfast, because about 30 minutes after we ate, our blood sugar was dropping and we had to get a snack. That night we had steak, macaroni & cheese and salad for dinner.
Friday I let hubby sleep in. LOL … only because I knew he’d probably clobber me if I didn’t. We got up and moving by late morning and spent the time wandering the town and shopping at Savers … of course! I love getting jeans for $4.99!! The best part … I was able to get a size smaller … YAY!!! We stopped at Einstein’s bagels and had a snack before was wandered to Pizza Hut to order & pick up our dinner. After dinner, the kids took us to the BX at the base. Wow, is that a nice store! The BX at the base hubby was stationed at, wasn’t anywhere near as nice. Of course, I wasn’t married to him at that time.
Saturday was the Miche Party. In addition to a Miche Party, one of the hostesses sells Scentsy. Scentsy are scented wickless candles. The scent of the month was Maple Butter. Oh. My. I’m loving the smell. I have a night light plug in and dropped a square of the Maple Butter scent. It sure makes the house smell good!! Check out the website here. You can order through this website. Check out the Clearance section … pretty cool. After the party it took me forever to enter and close out my party, but it was done and sent on to my distributor. We had Cafe Rio for dinner and the portions were quite large!
Sunday we had to leave. Poor Red had to hold extra things, as I had bought a few things for the party, etc. Hubby wasn’t too thrilled, but we made it home without blowing any tires!! Before we got on the road, he and I ate lunch at Golden Corral. All I can say is yummy!! Of course, y’all know how I enjoy a buffet! So on a full belly, we hopped into Red and made the 10 hour drive home.
Monday I had to cram to get my bible study homework done before class that night.
Tuesday hubby had his class at church, so I was able to work on my first day’s homework for Bible Study. Unfortunately that’s the only time I’ve been able to work on it this week, so that means this weekend I get to scramble to get it done.
While driving home from work on Wednesday, one of my friends called to ask if I’d be a sub in their bunko game. Since I’ve never played bunko and that sounded like so much fun, I said yes. LOL, little did I know what I was getting in to. Actually, I had a blast and since there is an empty spot, I was able to join them as a regular player. Once a month, a night of wild and crazy chic fun!
Thursday was a fun filled day. First thing in the morning I got studded snow tires put on Red. Tires Plus was having a killer tire sale, so we jumped on it. I was able to get their lifetime alignment at half price as part of this sale. With the ruts in the road and the pot holes, I took them up on that offer!! Then we wandered all over Carson City. Hung out until hubby’s follow up appointment with the specialist that did his surgery. He’s doing super great!! Doc is real pleased! YAY!
And now here it is Friday. I had to work today and am now enjoying the start of my 3 days off! We just got through watching Angels and Demons. I was so bummed that Obi Wan was a bad guy.
I haven’t heard anything from the HR department for the test I took 2 weeks ago. I have another test on Tuesday for the state. Should be interesting. I’m not sure whether to try and brush up on a few things or just go in cold and hopefully things will come back to me. LOL .. yeah right!!
Well, that’s about it … my past 2 weeks in a post. So, what are your plans for the weekend?
