A Little Behind

Sadly, my life has been rather boring lately so I don't really have much to report.  After my Grandpa's funeral we kind of laid low and I attempted to catch up on a lot of sleep.  Labor Day weekend consisted of zero labor in our household which was good and bad.  Good because I needed a fun weekend and bad because I really do have a lot that needs to be done around the house.  C'est la vie!

Oh and because I am lazy I left my camera at home all weekend......

Friday- Thanks to the dirty carpets in the office area at work I was forced to leave at 11am on Friday.  Sooooooo, what does one daughter and her mother do when forced to leave work half day?!? We go shopping and out to lunch.  :-)  My mom and I went shopping all day and found some great buys (mostly decor for the house).  Later that night I managed to convince my friend, A, that she should skip studying and grab drinks.  After begging her for at least 5 minutes she still stood her ground, declining drinks.  Not even 2 minutes after I hung up the phone she called back and said to meet her, her husband and friend at BW3's at 8pm.  Good food, great company and drinks made for a late night for Hubs and I.

Saturday- Hubs and I woke up early to go play golf.  It was FREEZING outside! It wouldn't have been so bad except the darn wind left me shaking.  Pretty sure all the other male golfers on the course were laughing at me because I had on a polo, long sleeve polo, and my North Face jacket in the attempts to stay warm while they walked around in shorts and a short sleeve polo.  I take after my dad, I'm cold natured.  After golf we just bummed around the house and did absolutely nothing. 

Sunday- After a great night of sleep we woke up ready and raring to go! We took Buerly and Rooney on a walk.  They actually made it a lot farther than Hubs and I ever guessed they would make it.  Bulldogs are not running/long distance walking dogs......more like make it to the end of the cul-de-sac kind of dogs.  They had a blast!  Afterward we met my parents for a round of golf.  It was rather disastrous and pretty shameful how pathetic we played.  Once again, c'est la vie!  We drowned our sorrows from our pathetic round of golf with a couple brewskis and some excellent food.  Later that night we headed over to my BIL and SIL's house for a bonfire and some hot tubbing.  It was the PERFECT night!

Monday-  My friend, A, and I headed over to the local apple orchard hoping to score some fresh apple cider, apples for pies, and of course an apple cider slushy.  Sadly, the apple press was broken so they were out of apple cider.  :-(  We were definitely bummed! But we still were able to get a bag of apples and a large apple cider slushy to go so not all was lost.  After I dropped A off at home I found my afternoon resting spot on the couch and snoozed on and off the rest of the afternoon.  Definitely a lazy Labor Day!

And that, in a nutshell, was my long weekend. Have a wonderful day! :-)
