I’m a slacker….

September 27, 2005

Whoops…haven’t updated for a while. Sorry about that! Things have been a bit busy.

Let’s see. We had a pretty quiet weekend. Jason took me out to dinner on Friday night. We had a gift card that was generously given to us for Texas Roadhouse and we enjoyed every bite and every minute šŸ™‚ It was pretty expensive, but since we weren’t actually paying we splurged a little. I got chicken, but Jason got a 16 ounce Rib Eye. He ate it in like 2 minutes, which is the only frustrating thing about going out to eat with him. He eats really fast. We also split a piece of strawberry cheesecake for dessert.

We slept in on Saturday morning, which was a blessing. Since Jason goes to work at 5:00 on weekday mornings and I am always getting up some time in the six o’clock hour, we don’t get that luxury often. I made breakfast and we stayed around the house for most of the day. We watched “A Simple Twist of Fate” with Steve Martin that evening.

Sunday flew by. We had the usual morning activities, but then the afternoon was Harvest Fest which was a regional Presbyterian gathering in Madisonville, KY. I took four youth and three other adults. We had a really good time–except that I taught the middle school workshop and had a couple of girls that made me want to pull my hair out of my head. But we survived!

We went to Applebees after Harvest Fest and had a very nice inter-generational experience. It was a good meal, too! Two meals out in one weekend is a good deal šŸ™‚

Today we have our Brownie Investiture ceremony. That’s when the girls receive their Brownie Pins. It will be really cute, but with 20 girls, it’s a lot of work to get ready. Luckily, I have a wonderful lady from the church named Bobbie Cantley and my mother coming to help with set up.

    How fun that you got to eat out twice! That is one thing that I tend to miss here in Europe. There just isn’t much of a culture of going out to eat in the same way Americans do (which has its pros and cons, of course!)

    But, my husband’s fresh homebaked bread blesses me abundantly anyways!
