I had another busy weekend that I didn't realize I was going to have. It started Friday night with La Careta for dinner. Most people get Margarita's when they eat Mexican but tequila is not my friend so I went with the Rum Rita. DELISH!!! It's an especially good drink for the summer. It's light & refreshing.Do I sound like I'm doing a commercial?? Saturday morning we had a birthday party we were supposed to go to but I woke up with a headache. I know what you're thinking, it wasn't the Rum Rita. I only had one. For the last several weeks Dean has told me that I'm grinding my teeth in my sleep. I think that's what's causing my headaches. I've had one every morning when I wake up for the past 2 weeks.I don't know what's causing it or what to do to stop it. So we didn't make it to the party but it was for 3 yr. olds & really do they even know you're there when they're surrounded by inflatable jumpy things?? Saturday afternoon I went to Home Depot. I'm getting ready to start my next project - paint my bathroom & switch out the light fixtures, cabinet hardware, etc. I'm going to use the same color in the bathroom that I used in my bedroom but I'm going to do some sort of faux finish so I was looking at glazes & different techniques. I made an impulse buy. A ceiling medallion for the foyer. I've been wanting one & I'd bought one when we switched out the light fixture but it wasn't the right size. At Home Depot I found one & bought it. After looking online today I'll be returning it because I found the exact same one for $15 & I paid $40.
Anyway, on to Saturday night. After Home Depot I made my way to Gonzales to Allison & Joey's house for the fantasy football draft. After a bit of debating strategy & some trading we ended up with the 2nd pick. Of course the 1st pick was Adrian Peterson so we went with Tom Brady. Apparently, we didn't do enough research & when I say enough I mean none, because when I got home & told Dean he informed me that Brady came out of their preseason game Friday night with a sore shoulder. We have on the Bronco's preseason game now & I just found out that Knowshon Moreno is also hurt & they hope to have him back by opening day. Guess who was another of our picks?? Yep Knowshon. As I'm writing this I'm watching Devin Hester call for a fair catch on a punt that's on the 5 yd. line. He doesn't appear to be very smart & yep you guessed it - he's ours too! We're just lucky we were able to stick to our No Thugs philosophy & field a team. In a couple of weeks I may be posting about "The Worst Fantasy Football Team Ever".
Today we went to 7:00 Mass & then grocery shopping. When we got home I took a good 2 hr. nap. I love my Sunday morning naps. It's pretty much a routine when I go to Mass at 7:00. This afternoon we went to the country for Dean's Godchild, Jacob's birthday party. It was wild as usual & everyone seemed to have a good time. We left there & headed to our friends' that moved to Zachary this summer to see their new house. It's really nice & we enjoyed visiting with them.
For you readers out there, I've started "Bitter Is The New Black". I've only read about 50 pages but so far I really like this book. I think it's going to be really good & I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series too.
I'm bummed that another weekend has come & gone & I didn't get to spend any time in the pool. Hopefully, next weekend we'll have nice weather since it's a long weekend.
I'm trying to have positive thoughts about tomorrow being Monday. I had a rough week last week & want to start this one off on good note.
