The long weekend

Saturday morning, as Jon was heading out of town, I got invited to go on a boat! And that was exciting, until I got cramps 10 minutes later. Now ladies, are you with me here in thinking that getting cramps means you shouldn't go on a boat? Because "on a boat" means "without a bathroom". So, instead, I layed on my couch ALL DAY long. And yes, I do mean all day. There was a brief break when Allison and I got in the car and drove to get a brownie from McGuires-but we got it to go, so we could get back to sitting on the couch. Then, we watched Son-In-Law, which I'd never seen. I thought it was delightful. Until I spilled my brownie, ice cream, and hot fudge in my lap. Because I'm seriously that cool. Sunday was actually equally thrilling...there was a lot of couch sitting then too. My cramps were extra bad this time, and why would I get off the couch if it wasn't necessary?

I am proud of the weekend's one achievement: I went through my clothes, putting warm stuff away, and getting all my summer clothing organized. It wasn't fun, but I'm glad it's done.

Monday was by far the high point of the weekend. We were supposed to go on that boat again, but that fell through. So, I spent about 10 minutes being bummed before we decided to go to Matt's house instead. We've been friends with Matt all throughout the cold weather, I guess, and had never been in his back yard. Last week, his sister mentioned that he has a pool! It's true, and I can't believe he never mentioned it.

We ended up spending hours at Matt's house, where Bertha learned that she loves the swimming pool. There were lots of kids around...nieces and nephews of Matt and his sister...it was really delightful. Once we taught the kids the rules to playing fetch with Bertha in the pool, everyone had a great time. Then, we stumbled home and fell in bed. I give it 5 stars.
