Good morning.
Friday afternoon I typed this really long message about going to Michael's craft store and all these emotions I had while I was there... blogger died and lost it. I couldn't re-type it, I had carpal tunnel after typing it! haha!
So, my weekend was so uneventful (unlike Ms. Niecybelle)! Her weekend sounded like a blast!
I cleaned Saturday. I went to a pig roast/wedding reception Saturday evening. It was small and intimate and very casual. A guy I work with got married. I took Tucker with me and we had a good time. Tucker was so well behaved! I just kept telling him "you are being so good, I'm so proud of you, keep it up, we're almost done and we can leave". What a doll he was!
Yesterday, my mom came over after church and I cut and colored her hair. That was it. That was my weekend.
AH! My husband did pull a shocker on me! He whispered something to Tucker Saturday morning and then they left. I assumed to get donuts. Well, they were gone, and gone and gone, for like an hour and a half! The donut shop is just around the corner. Well, finally the got home and Tim stood at the garage door with a funny smile on his face and Tucker comes sneaking in w/ something behind his back. WELL! I got flowers, a bear and a card for sweetest day! I didn't even know it was sweetest day!! I was suprised!!! It was so wonderful and made me feel so special!!! Now, you've got to know my hubby, he's not the romantic kind. Really neither of us are very romantic. So for him to remember and to do something so sweet was really a true gesture of appreciation and love. It made my day!!! :-)

> "Why?"

> "Because I am your Father and I said so! " God replied,

> "Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit? " God asked.

> "Uh huh," Adam replied.

Oh thanks for laugh Pat! It's true - why did I ever think this would be a breeze?
Kristi, I did end up going but only because I decided Sat. afternoon that I had stayed home all day and needed to get out of the house. Tucker was awesome and was no problem! I will ask J to sit again someday. It's all good!BTW: How was dinner w/ Grandma and did she love the book?
