Mass Snob

I really try not to talk about people immediately after leaving Mass. I think it kind of defeats the purpose of going in the first place BUT today I was really annoyed. First off, I don't like to be late, therefore I rarely am. Late people are my biggest pet peeve. I understand that stuff happens & things come up. I'm talking about the habitually late people. My time is just as important as yours contrary to what you may think!! So, I'm in Mass this morning & as usual there are about a million late arrivers. This is something I just can't get past. Every week tons of people are late. It's so distracting. I think whoever comes in late should have to stand up in the back so they don't disturb anyone. There I sit during the first reading when a woman comes up to the row I'm on & wants to scoot by me to sit with her family who's already seated next to me. This causes me to lose my place in the reading which aggravates me but I get over it UNTIL the woman & her husband proceed to talk during the entire Mass. These were not young people that didn't know better or old people that couldn't hear & didn't know how loud they were being. They appeared to be in their 40's or 50's. I was seriously considering shushing them but I didn't think that would look good on my part & we all know there is very little that I care more about than what people think of me. These people weren't whispering either. I cannot begin to imagine what was so important that it couldn't wait until Mass was over. I'm just going to go ahead & say I think I'm a Mass snob. I believe there are certain ways you should behave during Mass & TALKING ISN'T IT!!!

I went back to 11:00 Mass so that I could observe the Sunday School class I'll be teaching. I wanted to see how things were done before it was my turn to teach. We have 10 kids & they're soooo cute!!! We had a lot of fun. I think it's a good sign when nobody cries when their parents drop them off but they cry when they come to pick them up!!

One week from today we'll be in VEGAS!!! I'm so excited. I hope this week goes by as fast as this weekend has.

Friday night we had dinner with our good friends that live next door. We went to La Carreta. The food & Rumrita's were delicious as usual but the service was terrible. We had to wait for a table. They told us 20-25 mins. I find usually when they tell you a time it's not that long. Well, this was longer but not a big deal because we had drinks & were talking. We finally got a table & then it took FOREVER for the waitress to take our order.

Saturday was a very lazy day. Dean's parents came over & watched the game with us. It was another not so good performance. It really looked like 2 bad football teams. I'm really curious to see what's going to happen Saturday in Athens. I spent some time in the pool & the water was fabulous!!!

No Thugs is not having a good day. It looks like our undefeated streak of 2 is done. We're currently losing by 51 points. We have a couple of players still playing but so does our opponent. Today my mom was here & Dean & I were talking about how No Thugs is doing & my mom informs me that my daddy said that he doesn't understand why we didn't pick Drew Brees since we had the opportunity. I'm going to say this one more time - IT'S TOOOOOO LATE SO STOP BRINGING IT UP! I know it was a bad move. I've taken responsibility for it & I've learned from my mistake. What more can I do? I still say that the Saints are still the Saints & it doesn't matter that they're undefeated. At some point this season they'll do something Saintly & everything will go to hell in a handbasket.

Time to figure out what I'm going to eat. Dean is having hot dogs. UGGGHHHH. I had Sonic for lunch & it was delish!!! Love, Love, Love Sonic!!!
