Friday night school shopping was quite productive. We managed to get all but one or two items from our entire school supply list. Once we learn which team Jack will be on for 7th grade, we will probably have to get a few more items; but for the most part we are ready to go for the first day of school.
The rest of the evening was pretty much nondescript. Chic-Fil-a for dinner, and shopping.
Saturday was nothing all that special either. I spent about two hours cleaning and detailing the interior of the 2007 HHR. it could probably be done much better by a professional, but I scrubbed the leather seats, the door and dash panels, and spent a great deal of time and effort removing spots from the carpeting with upholstery cleaner specifically designed for cars.
I could have accomplished a lot more, and would even have worked even harder to get more of the spots and stains out; but the temperatures were above 100 F outside (heat index well over 110 F), and after two hours I felt like I was on the edge of a heat stroke.
I did go out with the girls from work, Saturday night. But although I did not have a bad time, I can't honestly say I had a good time either. I got the impression that most of the group that was expected to show up for the evening, never showed. The bar itself was pretty dead the entire night. And, quite frankly, although I like Morgan and Alli (they are two of my favorite employees), they are just a couple of kids compared to me. I'm old enough to be either girl's father.
I would much rather have been with Karen, playing trivia.
Fortunately, the entire evening out only cost me $20 in drinks. A relatively cheap evening (I pretty much got what I paid for.) :-(
But that also means that I still have the money, that I had anticipated spending last night, saved in my pocket for next weekend. It might not be payday, but karen and I can do date Night on Friday, and the Dolly Parton concert on saturday.
Today has been Ok so far, but it's just to dang hot to do anything that I really need to be doing. I need to be outside mowing the front yard, and then tackling the overgrown jungle that is currently taking over the back yard.
Karen and I went out for Brunch at 10:30, and had a really nice meal together. Just the two of us.
That was after we had snuggled in bed for about half an hour. During which Karen laughed at me the entire time, because I kept playing with her hair and burying my face into the hair at the back of her head. I can't help it.
- Her hair is so incredibly sexy and beautiful: It's finally getting really Long again, Its so Soft, and it's so Silky and shiny. I can't keep my hands out of it.
- It always smells really good.
- It's a really sexy dark red, which drives me crazy to begin with (you should see it shine like a fire filled ruby as it reflects the sun).... and finally...
- She's putting off hormones (because of Aunt Flo) that are driving me absolutely insane. And her hair is pretty much the only part of her body that I can touch without making her upset.
That's all fine with me, because I love her hair. It's sexy, and turns me on.
After our brunch, we picked up a prescription at Walgreen's pharmacy, and then headed to Michael's and Target to do a little bit of shopping.
Karen had a really good coupon for Michael's, which she was able to apply to items already on sale. She bought me some new watercolor markers and illustration pens; to help me work on art projects.
Kinda got me wondering if she's not hinting that she would like me to send her more of my little artsy love notes and cards. I haven't given her any for quite some time (since before scout camps started up). I have a couple finished, and others that are near to being done; but most of them were started when she still had the blonde hair. So, I need to start from scratch on most of them and re-do the artwork. Now that I have new index cards, markers, and pens, I'll have to make certain to work on some soon.
By the time we got home a few hours ago, the temperature was 100 F again. The heat index is somewhere near 116; according to the weather channel and accuweather. Like I said, I need to be mowing the grass,but I don't want to have a heat stroke trying to do it.
So, right now, I'm catching up on shows recorded on my DVR, and trying to squeeze in another nap. I figure the rest of this day is shot, which means that the weekend is pretty much a wrap; other than just chillaxing and laying around.
Which brings us to looking forward to NEXT WEEKEND:
Next weekend will be a blast; and hopefully help me put this weekend completely out of my memory. Although this weekend isn't technically over yet, I'm already looking forward to next Friday and Saturday nights.
Makeup date Night: Friday night, we can do dinner (Ruby Tuesday's or Qdoba) and a movie. Just like we did back in the days when we were dating. The comedy,'Bad Moms,' comes out next Friday night, and it's a movie that I have had highlighted as a Date Night movie on my must see 2016 Summer Movies list since I made my list back at the beginning of May. I think it's supposed to be more of a chick flick, but it has some awesome eye candy in it for me (Mila Kunis and Christina Applegate), and based upon the trailers that have come out since May 2nd, it looks like it will be absolutely hilarious. Bought my tickets early, and online, and managed to save $3 pers person off the normal ticket price. Woo hoo!
Saturday Night: It's seems like it was just a week ago that I bought Karen the tickets to see Dolly Parton in concert.... and now the night of the concert is almost upon us.
I really don't care for Dolly Parton all that much, but Karen really likes her; and since she's not getting any younger (Dolly, that is), I thought it important to take my Sweetie to see her in concert at the Scottrade Center. I know what it's like to really want to see a musical artist, or band, and not have anyone that wants to take you to see them (Scorpions). She wanted this, so I want to make it happen for her. I know it's going to be a really fun time. A perfect occasion and reason to do her hair and makeup, and get dressed to have a fun night out on the town. Heck, I have to figure out what I'm going to wear. I don't have a clue what to wear to see Dolly in concert.
So, yeah. this weekend may have turned out to be a stinker of a disappointment, but next Friday and saturday will make up for it.
I know it's easier said than done, but what's done is done. Wipe the slate clean and leave it in the past. Look to what's ahead and make the most of it. Well, next weekend has a lot to look forward to and be happy about.
