Hey, how are you on this yucky Monday? Things aren't terrible here. Just kind of blah. I did have a good weekend, though. How about you?
Yes, two good weekends in a row. Is that some sort of record? I dunno.
Friday night, as mentioned, Robert and I went out to the comedy club. It was a lot of fun. Then, after the show, we went out to a late dinner at a Mexican Restaurant...not the one we usually go to...but the service was great as well as the food.
Saturday I ended up doing a favor for a friend that benefited both of us. My friend Sandy, asked me to set up her CM products at a church. The girl who usually does it is now working a second job, so she doesn't have time. I got a percentage of the sales, and it ended up working out to be $25. All I did is go with Jess, set up, work on my own scrapbooking while people browsed. I invested about 4 hours total into the event, set up and drive time included. I thought it was fun. I got to chat with some new folks as well.
Sunday I went to my friend's house that just had twin baby boys. I spent around 3-4 hours in the afternoon just chatting, feeding and holding the babies. (And burping them!) I tell ya, I guess you never forget how to do that...;). They are the cutest little guys. Their personalities are already so different! Jo went along. He played video games and then later held one of the babies. He was so good at it that Jo ended up rocking the little guy to sleep. It was sweet.
The only drawback to the whole weekend was that I did something to my back. Bending over is such a strain on my back, I try never to do so at all. I try to squat and lift, but every now and then I forget. I was struggling with my dog, Maggie, Saturday night. She kept barking a lot, so I decided to put her in the basement so we could get some sleep. She decided she didn't want to go and I was trying to push her to the door, while she was bracing herself against it. It probably was a sight to behold. She weighs far too much to pick up and she is very stout. I finally had to call Robert, who just picked her up and placed her (easily) on the top step of the basement.
Sunday morning I woke up and I couldn't move my head from side to side without extreme pain. My lower back hurt as well.
Today I'm doing a lot better thanks, in part, to an otc pain patch and some ipubrofen.
Okay, I'm out for now. Hope your Monday, if it isn't painless is at least passing by quickly. ;)
