Oh friends – how was your week/weekend? In the words of my pig son, “Oh my piggy heavens!” I admit that we didn’t make the best of food choices last week. I tried to stay on plan the best I could do but it was one of those weeks that you chased to keep up with. Can you relate? And I knew the weekend was going to be busy. There were so many errands to run. When you think about it, it’s unfair how we get two days of the weekend that is meant for rest from your work week but is used to play catch up with errands. And then you have to work five days. Tsk-tsk so unfair in my book – LOL.
So Saturday, we hit the door running. We had a few things planned that somehow ended in snowballing into a cluster of errands. I’m not sure how that happened. But the list of things to do kept growing and growing like kudzu here in the south. First off on the list, to get my hair cut and colored. There is nothing like getting pampered with a cut/color and just having some time to yourself. Of course, my cut and color turning into several hours but that gave me time to work on my to-do list on my phone. But, I do like the results. I feel younger, more relaxed and more me. Afterwards, can you believe we went Christmas shopping and finished? Yes we did. Now that deserved a drink and trust me, mommy got one…or two.
I know it was the marathon from the day before that did it. Sunday morning I felt like a zombie trying to move in bed. Oh my! It hurt to even move my toes. Finally after some slow moving, I did succeed in getting up and dressed. The goal for this day was to have a quiet breakfast with the hub unit at one of our local places. We walked out to the Jeep and guess what. The Jeep was feeling it too. One of the tires on the Jeep was barely filled with air. It might have been during this time that I lowered my head and thought, “Why me? Why today”.
That’s how our Sunday plans got changed. Instead of breakfast that we wanted, it was to our local Sam’s Warehouse to get tires installed. So while waiting for our Jeep, we had the breakfast of champions at the Sam’s snack bar… pizza. At least the hub unit was thrilled. And at least 2.5 hours later, we left with nice tires… amazing how a Jeep runs with full tires.
So my friends, how was your week/weekend?

Hello my friends. If you have been following my blog for any length of time, then you know that my mom/dad are crae-crae, crazy, over the top, not swimming with both oars or shall we say can not go out into public without getting into trouble. You understand where I’m coming from?
This weekend was no exception. I’m telling you, mom/dad left to their own devices not under anipal care, can be committed somewhere with matching white jackets that tie in the back. At this point, you are probably asking yourself well what the heck did they do this time?
Dad had been telling mom all week that Saturday night, he was taking her somewhere special, somewhere with pizzazz with great food and that the place was very popular. Come Saturday night, mom donned some special clothes and met dad in the front room. Dad told her, “Honey you are way overdressed.” So mom went and put on some jeans and a t-shirt. That’s when she started thinking what kind of “nice” place was this restaurant.
They get into the Jeep and dad gives mom instructions. That’s when… give me a moment to snort with piggy laughter… they arrived at the special restaurant with pizzazz – the local Sam’s Warehouse. OMP – mom busted out laughing so hard and was thankful she changed clothes for this special outing.
Mom/dad entered the warehouse and had the person at the door check their membership. That’s when dad told the greeter that he needed a table for two. Mom just shook her head and laughed.
So mom/dad find the best seat in the house and decide what they want for dinner. They chose pizza – astonishing huh? But not just any pizza. Dad referred to it as the best pizza this south of Atlanta. And the picture really does not do it justice. That one pizza slice is as big as a regular paper plate – or fine china as daddy called it that night. So, two slices of pizza and two drinks for an astonishing $4.00 date night. Can you beat that? Snorts with piggy laughter. So, the next time you are at your local Sam’s Club, check out the amazing pizza… not that I would know personally because mom/dad didn’t bring me home a piggy bag.
