weekend recap…the good, the bad and the truly disgusting

Another weekend has come to an end. A fairly busy weekend, at that.

Friday night we headed to the high school football game. Another loss for our team. Boo. But truth be told, I’m there to socialize and watch the band and dance team at half-time. And I must say they both performed better than the football team.

Saturday morning I was up bright and early to hit a huge consignment sale. And I scored. Big! Delaney will be well-dressed for another season. Thank you second-hand clothing sales!

Saturday also happened to be Jeremy’s birthday. So for the next six months we will be the same age. That’s the way I like it. He wanted to grill steaks for his birthday dinner so Delaney was hanging out in the backyard while he was out back preparing our meal. Something yucky caught her eye and she said, “Ewwww.” Ewwww was an understatement. Her Little Tykes picnic table was surrounded by a moat of crap. Literally. Sewer back up in our backyard. Ewwww Ewwww Ewwww!

So we spent Sunday waiting for the plumber to show up to clean out our sewer line. Turns out it was full of tree roots. One of the disadvantages of living in an older house in an older neighborhood. A very yucky disadvantage.

The weekend ended on a good note, with family helping us celebrate Jeremy’s birthday with chocolate cupcakes.

Now it’s back to reality. Spanish tests, lesson plans, papers to grade. But hopefully all the crap from this weekend is behind us!
