- So I had a jam packed week last week/weekend. Not lying.
- I worked about 50 hours in 4 1/2 days trying to catch up after vacation. It wasn't pretty. I was working on a project that was put to me by someone who understood nothing about the scope of the project he needed me to do. So yea, that was fun.
- Friday night, we went to Wrights Farm Restaurant (which I like to call Wrights Chicken Farm) for dinner. Scott's brother had been in town and we went there with a few people from the family. It was delicious. All you can eat Salad, Chicken, Macaroni, and French Fries? Thank you!
- Saturday morning, I went to the house and FINALLY mowed the lawn. Seriously. I say finally because I hadn't done it since SEPTEMBER. Like, early September. Like 6 weeks ago. It took me about a good 3 hours and I had to do everything twice. No lie. The grass kept clogging the chute and I had to stop a million times. So frustrating. Never again will I wait that long! The plan this weekend is to mow again (and pick up the clippings I left behind this weekend), and fertilize.
- Once I finished mowing, Scott's brother, mom, and aunt came over and we walked them through the house - Scott's brother hadn't seen the inside yet and it had been months since his mom had seen it. They were pleasantly surprised with all of the updates, thus far.
- We then jetted back to Cranston (I had to make a pit-stop at the storage unit to pick up some shoes) and got showered and changed for a wedding. We went casual to the wedding, and then came back home and changed up for the reception. It was a beautiful night at the Squantum Association in East Providence.
- Yesterday was the only non-busy day. And it was glorious. I seriously sat at home ALL day in my pajamas and read a book. I did run out to the market (in said pajamas) and I also baked some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. But other than that, I woke up and went to bed without every changing my clothes. AWE-SOME!!
- Speaking of Macaroni (see point 2 above)...My husband and I have been having a friendly debate forever now, and I found out that my mom sides with ME: When I make macaroni, I like to mix all of the sauce/gravy into the macaroni so that everything is deliciously covered. My husband prefers that you just put macaroni in a bowl and put a scoop of sauce on top. His way is how they do it at Wrights Farm. I find it frustrating because it allows people to take all the macaroni with the sauce and leave the last person to get gluey macaroni with no sauce. No. My way is the right way. :o)
- Those Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins I made yesterday?? Delicious. Although I have to admit that the first batch of muffins came a bit flat. I think it's because I put some chocolate chips on top. So I don't know. But they were still delicious. And check out the recipe....I wrote it out in 2nd grade! :o) The funniest part? My sister texted me today and said she made the same thing yesterday. How weird is that??
- So at the wedding we went to on Saturday I discovered that my camera is even more amazing than I originally though. I can change pictures to black and white and sepia and it saves a copy! How cool is that???
- This weekend, I spent most of the weekend reading the third book in the Game of Thrones series. I don't think I need to tell you that I"m obsessed. I am. I have found that I enjoy certain people's stories much more than others (I honestly can't stand Daenerys - she annoys the crap out of me), but I'm really enjoying it. I'm going to have to go back and re-read all of the books once I finish, though. I know there's a lot of stuff I'm missing.
- And my final point for today's Monday Matters....Someone recently tried to put me on a huge guilt trip and spelled "loose" instead of "lose." The spelling error was nothing, but it infuriated me on accounts of the attempted guilt trip. So I leave you today with a list of my biggest pet-peeves...It's a short list. But it'll do for now :o)
- Loose - If your pants are too loose, then you should buy a belt.
- Lose - If you don't buy a belt, you're probably going to lose your pants.
- There - Go over there and get me a cookie.
- Their - Go pick up their dirty plates. They just had cookies.
- They're - Go to the kitchen. They're hungry for cookies.
- Your - What is your telephone number?
- You're - What do you mean you don't know? You're so forgetful!
