Weekend Come and Gone...
Even though my husband had to leave at the end of it, I am so glad this weekend is over. Maybe we can get back to something resembling a normal life again. I told you in my last post about how busy this last week/weekend was going to be and it lived up to every single one of my expectations.
On the upside, I won 4 tickets to next Sunday's Indians game at work, I also won $65 gift certificate on the radio (be the 10th caller) for Deep Discount DVD.com. I won a book light for a Harry Potter trivia contest, a great Opus and Bill the Cat drawing on a silent auction. We are still waiting to hear the results of the department decorating contest and the scavenger hunt. I also got a Panera's gift certificate, a Border's Gift certificate, and Spiderman 2.1 (I love Doc Ock) DVD for Mother's Day.
Mother's Day brunch went fine. I kept my cool with the help of some self prescribed "anti-anxiety" medication and 4 Mimosas at the restaurant. The food was outstanding.
My aunt's memorial service was ok. The memorial service, in my opinion, was more for the church (she was a minister) than for the family. The part that really got me though was at the end there was to be a lone bagpiper playing Amazing Grace. He did a good job until that one really high note (Saved a wretch like meeeee) he could not hit that note. It sounded like he was strangling a cat in the choir loft. Instead of the solemn dignity my uncle was striving for it was more a wincing/chuckle induced moment. Oh-well, my aunt would have gotten a chuckle out of it.
But it's now back to something resembling a normal life. :::sigh::: Thank Goodness...

    Matt - I usually go in on the office pool, if for no other reason than if they win I don't want to be the only one left at work. I think you're right though and I'll pick up on for myslef this week. It couldn't hurt.

    Wow, you are on a winning roll. You need to fly to Vegas or Atlantic city right away.

    Put the house payment down on red33, remember you heard it here first!

    Sorry Sky, I'm not flying anywhere for the moment. But I will remember that the next time I go gambling.

    Normal routines are a welcome change when things get crazy, aren't they?
