Is it just me or does it seem like the weekends are getting shorter?
My weekend went by super quick!!
Friday we did our groceries and then went to my aunts house with the dogs to pick up veggie trays for the buck and doe. The dogs got to play with Betsy who is another golden retriever. We knew we were not going to be around very much this weekend, so we tried to include the dogs as much as we could.
Saturday we were up early, I had laundry on the go, as the weather was fantastic!! We were off to the hall (which is just around the corner from my house) to set up for the buck and doe. We finished up there around 2:00. We came home for a bit of down time before getting ready for dinner. This is where you tell me I am getting old, because I had to have a nap, in order to stay up past 11:00 PM. I only ended up having a 20 minute nap, before I had to get up to do my hair! Which by the way, I thought it was pretty fantastic, although I have no pictures... but it was super curly and cute!! We had dinner here in the village and then off to the hall we went to finish setting up. Overall the night went great!! The only part that sucked was not getting home until 3 AM, especially when you do not do well after 11 PM, especially 12 AM and past!
I will also point out the following:
You will do anything for your friends when:
- you deal with pickle trays and pickle juice - and you HATE pickles, especially the smell.
- you touch things you would normally not touch without gloves - when you wear gloves for everything like myself...
- you go table to table pouring left over liquids from cups and it STINKS BAD - when your nose is sensitive
- you wash down tables without gloves and then get prune fingers - when once again, you would normally wear gloves
- you stay up super late to ensure everything gets done and cleaned up.
Overall, it was a great night and I would do it all over again, except I might remember to grab my gloves! Congrats again M and J!! Can't wait until your wedding. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped out where they could.
Sunday, we had a low key day. M got up at 9:30, I went back to bed until 11:00 AM. We took back the extra booze and empties and then popped by M and J's for a quick hello and sorted out some of the left overs and what not. I had another nap in the afternoon and then M and I went for a nice walk with the dogs, who have felt completely neglected this weekend!! Poor ladies!!! But the weather was absolutely amazing... like 22 degrees Celsius. We had a short thunderstorm in the morning and then the sun was out by the afternoon!
That was my weekend in a nutshell!!!
