Monday Monday

Wow! Another weekend has slipped right by me. It was a very nice weekend with lots of running around, as usual. :)

On Friday night, we had a nice dinner of leftovers (woo hoo!) and then, after Mr. Nate went to sleep, we snuggled up with Syd on the basement floor and watched cars. We had popcorn and lemonade. Yum! Oh yeah, I decided to hit the grocery store between dinner and the movie since I knew I would be gone for much of the weekend. Syd and I fell asleep on the floor around 9:30pm. Lame! :) I STILL have not seen that movie from beginning to end.

Saturday morning, we got up around 7:30am and got ready. Marc went to work and I took the kids to Gordonsville/Orange for most of the afternoon. We visited with my dad's parents and then, I stopped by to see my mom's parents. At about 4:30, we headed to Fredericksburg to meet Mom and Tom for dinner. We decided to try the Fredericksburg Pub. After an hour and twenty minutes, we got a table. The place was jammed and thankfully, the kids were willing and well behaved. The food was quite good. Marc had the sheppherd's pie, which I tried, and there wasn't one bite left. I had to try the fish and chips, another success. We got home quite late and I almost immediately went to bed. I had to catch up on Grey's and PP before. I STILL have to watch HK before Thursday.

Sunday we spent a lot of the day doing chores and then, we headed out to Costco to drop off my frames. I need new lenses. After the man broke them, he told me it would take TWO weeks to get them back. IPES! I'm not sure how I'm going to deal without my glasses for two weeks. I'll have to muttle through.

We drove out to the potential new home yesterday. I spent a lot of time looking at the neighbors and the neighborhood. I realized that it is so strange to drive into a neighborhood and see the backs of houses only. It also didn't look like there were a lot of trees or grass. I'm hoping this is just because spring hasn't sprung completely. We located the pool and tennis courts. There were lots of families out and about, which I did like. The chance to meet some new faces!

We had dinner at Golden Corral, laugh if you must, with my brother Wes and his girlfriend, Tara. I didn't know she was coming and was in my Sunday worst! Bad brother! She seems nice enough. The jury is still out though since it was such a brief visit. :) I'm very protective of him. I guess I didn't realize until yesterday just how protective I am. I know it is just my instinct when new faces come into the picture. I don't typically just let the gate down. It doesn't take long though. :) We're going to the aquarium together in a few weeks so that should be lots of fun.

Well, I'm off! Have a great day!

Sounds like you have been busy.

Some movies I don't ever think I will see all the way through.

Busy girl! The new home looks WONDERFUL and my fingers are crossed all goes well with that.

Wow, what a packed weekend. Sounds like it was productive and fun though. I'm sure your new neighborhood is just fantastic - Aldie is such a lovely community.
