Another one bites the dust (the weekend, that is)

Fair warning: there will be no quilt content in this post because I accomplished nothing on the weekend. Surprised? I think not. I have all these good intentions and they consistantly amount to SQUAT.

I did manage to drive my sister to T.O. to the passport office on Friday (pleasant surprise: only a 20 minute wait.... could've been a lot worse). Then we spent the rest of the day shopping, eating, and managed to stop at a casino on the way home! (My sister and I were raised in family of gamblers, and for the most part we don't gamble, but every now and then, when we are together, we take a trip down memory lane and either go to Bingo or to a casino. Since we only do it once a year, my husband hasn't felt it necessary to send me for professional help yet... LOL). It was a good day, I only get to see my sister three or four times a year and it was nice to have the whole day to ourselves (ie: no kids)

Sunday I drove to Waterloo for BoyCrazy's bowling tournament. Another long day, we didn't get home until almost 11:00pm. And to top it off, she didn't bowl well and was not happy about it. Get over it, sweetheart, it's only bowling....

Speaking of "get over it" both my girls got a tattoo yesterday.It took them two years of NON-STOP nagging before Daddy and I gave in, but I'm still not happy about it. I guess I'll "get over it" eventually. Don't ask me why I don't like tattoos because I really don't know.... I have several family members and lots of friends who have them, but I just don't get it.... I think it's the permanent part that freaks me out... what if you hate it when your 30 or 40? The bright side is that I still have some pull as Mom, and the conditions were 1) it has to be small 2) no where I can see it unless you're wearing a bikini 3) don't even THINK about getting a second one until you move out! Why did I have kids? I really can't remember.....

Wait! I'm not done yet: BabyBoy brought home his report card Friday and he has a 41 in English. 41! R U Kidding me!?? I almost had a heart attack. I have never seen a failing grade from one of my kids before.... He says he has no idea why he's failing, he's sure he's done all of his work, blah blah blah. Now I have to go see his teacher because I'm pretty sure you don't fail if you make an honest effort and actually DO all of the work, and his track record in the homework department is not the greatest. bam! bam! bam! (this is me pounding my head on the desk....)

I do love my kids, but give me a break already....

I REALLY need to be quilting... and soon.....

Sounds like you really had a busy weekend. I'm sure you enjoyed the time with your sister. I wish I had a sister to do fun stuff with.
