Nick and I went to see this ridiculous movie on Friday night. Which didn't scare me at the time, but now I am terrified and think about it before I go to sleep. Fucking scary movies with creepy scary kids. Sidenote - I don't know why I think I will be able to spend the night in the Villisca Axe Murder House in November.
Mom, Grandma, Kate and I went to lunch on Saturday, and then hit up a few Goodwills in Omaha. Grandma was looking for flannel shirts and pajamas. I am always on the lookout for new (used) tshirts to wear for workouts. It was a nice afternoon and Grandma is so sweet when we spend time and do things with her.
After that, I went to a baby shower for Sheri. It was not your typical baby shower, what with the wine and beer that was flowing. Normally I avoid baby showers, but I'm glad I didn't this time. For one thing, I wound up on the floor acting out a woman in labor during a very interesting game of charades (which I dominated at) and two, when I first arrived I saw Donna and Calise standing outside talking. Donna looked over at me, so I gave her a little wave and started walking towards them. Donna looked at me strangely and just kept talking to Calise. Of course my mind went to "great...is Donna another one of those people who secretly hate me?" but as I got a few feet away from me, she exclaimed my name - she didn't recognize me! I haven't seen her in about a year, and sometimes I forget how drastically different I look now (especially since I still look in the mirror and see a fat ol' blob).
Last Sunday, Mama Jan and I were texting about Once Upon a Time, and she mentioned she loves Revenge. I have always been curious about this show, so I got ahold of season one and started watching it one week ago today. I am now all caught up, and I am uber obsessed. What was I thinking, ignoring this show! It's so good, and I'd be lying if I said it's not making me feel revengy. But I could never pull off anything like Amanda Clark/Emily, so I will stick to doing nothing and continuing to be blissfully blissful.
Adventures in Babysitting
Today I ventured over to the Boone's to watch Coop and Chan while Hannah and Nick went to dinner.
We played in a tent.
Cooper showed me his scared face.
Chandler showed me his cute face.
Coop protected us from Arlo, who he likes to pretend is an alligator.
All in all, a wonderful weekend just happened, and now I have a four day work week. I have vacay to burn before the end of the year, and this is the first of my many four day weekends to come. So excited!
