Weekend Wrap-Up

Wow. Be proud. Or horrified. My Reader is down to none. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Okay, I confess...I didn't actually read every single one. But I still feel pretty well caught up.

And I increased my virtual memory so that I can now be on the internet and listen to iTunes at the same time. You might be horrified by this as well, but I actually downloaded 10 David Cook songs (no "Phantom" wasn't among them - not even Cook can make me like Phantom). I really like this guy, and look forward to seeing how his career progresses.

So I couldn't get the photo from Space Mountain to come out right here, but to make up for it (sort of), here's a pic of her in her Miley wig.

We went to my sister's, and I remembered my camera but completely forgot to take any pictures! But we had a really good time. The girls got invited to the neighbor's bday party, so they had 2 parties to attend. The weather cleared up enough, and the pool was heated enough that they went swimming, too. (And I got in some jacuzzi time.) It was also nice to see my sister's friends, who are always so sweet and fun to be around. We laughed a lot.

And it was good to get away because my stupid satellite went out again! Sylvia was heartbroken to miss "Step it Up and Dance" (don't tell us what happens; it's supposed to record tonight at midnight) so it was best to just skip town anyway. But all is well again. $60 and a monthly warranty charge later. Not like I'm counting or anything.

A big thank you to Natalie for bestowing the E Award onto me.

And most especially for the kind words that accompanied it:

April - April is a fellow single mom. I can’t remember when she discovered me, but I am so glad that she did. I’ve watched her find her voice and she blows me away with how intelligent and thoughtful she is.

I'm glad I found you, too. I think it must've been through either Lunanik or Huckdoll, but no matter - I'm thrilled that I did. If you're not making me laugh, you're making me think so it's always beneficial.

Now for the hard part - passing it on, mainly because most of my favorite bloggers have already received this. So if it's a repeat for you, I apologize.

Chalk dust makes me sneeze - written by a high school teacher, this blog is always a pleasure to read.

Tranny Head (formerly Law School Hot Mama - no longer a law student :) - I love the way your mind (tranny or not) works.

A Bright Future - thanks for one of the best laughs I had this week (in your email).

There's always more I want to say in these weekend wrap-ups that I can never remember to say. Or, worse yet, I do remember and it results in a really long post. So I'll leave it here.

Congrats on your award April, so well deserved.

That is a very cute picture of our daughter too, love the hair LOL!

And I laughed out loud when I read that you downloaded all those David Cook tunes LOL!!!! I only watched the last couple of episodes of AI this year, and caught his performance of Billie Jean (Tuesdays are my gym night); but I was so glad he won. The next day I spent surfing Youtube to check out all of his other performances I had missed all season!!!! Although I'm with you on the Phantom (I don't get it; that or Cats, but I digress...) he had me pretty much mesmerized with that song too hahaha!!

That award is perfect for you, because this is, indeed, an EXCELLENT blog!

I dl'd most of the David Cook songs except Phantom - I feel the way you do. I think I didn't dl happy together or one or two of the shorter ones.

I was really surprised by the wig - thought this was a new, bizarre do or something!

PS - We disagree with the war around this house, too . . . but can't say so too publicly because hubby is actively serving. Anyway, that's an FYI for ya.

I love that you included the quote from Natalie (with no apologies for doing so). That right there is the reason I have added you to my reader. Congratulations on your award (and I LOVE Chalkdust, too.)

Congrats on your award! I'm going to have to check out Chalkdust, too. That's one I haven't visited yet.

Your daughter--Riley right?--looks so much like you in that picture! Adorable.
