Happy Friday! Weekend plans?
Might go see "42" tonight. It's in the plans, but I don't know if I feel like it tonight. Gonna play it by ear. Sat/Sun laundry, homework, maybe cleaning the house (we'll see how that goes), hopefully catching up on some sleep.

More Spinach to ya' and don't mess with the dining room drapes.
I am not sure if I should take that as a compliment or not, but you made me laugh.

Also, do you know how long it took me to get the Jovi reference yesterday? My SIL and cousin would be so ashamed.

Happy Friday! Weekend plans?

Tonight I'm having dinner with my friend C. She's pregnant and I haven't seen her in a couple of months so it'll be fun to see her progress, and to catch up of course.

Not sure about Saturday.

Sunday night, my church is doing a beach baptism and about 25 people are getting baptized in the ocean (including me and my friend L).
Sounds like fun!

Tonight: Going to watch my husband play in his first softball game of the season. Thankfully this year he playing in a league in town.

Tomorrow: Soccer practice for Ry, then tball game for E, as long as the rain holds off. Church in the evening since Ry's games are on Sunday mornings.

Sunday: Soccer, then head down to my MIL's for the afternoon. Hopefully she is in a better mood than last weekend or at least willing to do something other than sit in the house and complain about how everyone else in the family is wrong (doesn't matter what the subject is or what their decisions are - they are all wrong).

I had a headache all day on Tuesday, which was our wedding anniversary. I'd like to go out to dinner with my husband some time soon.

That sounds like a really cool way to get baptized.(Now I'm sitting here trying to think of what you wish someone getting baptized...Happy Splashing?)

Tonight: I'm hoping to get the kids to bed early and then get some nookie for myself before I go to sleep early as well because...

Sat: MIL is picking me and the girls up at 6AM to drive to Iowa to go pick up the puppy. Looking foward to seeing the girls with the pup; not looking foward to 12+ hours in the car.

Sun: I suspect we'll be playing with a puppy.

I make hot dogs once in a blue moon only because *I* LOVE my Nathan's and Sabretts!

I never make chicken nuggets or frozen pizza. When my kid was little, though, I'd make those mini quiches or frozen mussels as a quick food. I think I bought chicken nuggets ONCE when her friend was spending the night, but that's it.

If she's too hungry to wait for normal dinner, she can have a few carrots or cherry tomatoes or something.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BAPTISM!!! I hope the water isn't too cold!!! Our church did one inteh gulf on Easter and they said it was FREEZING! The other person decided to wait to do it in the warmer water at the church!:D That's great news, though!!!

We are going to Disney tomorrow. Rain chances dropped from 50% to 40% and it's only going to be 72 degrees! Perfect! It probably wont' be too crowded because of the rain chances, too. It will be fun!

I was in Iowa once. Getting a puppy would be the only way I'd go back!

Haha, squishy... Happy Splashing, that's cute.

Stina, my only concern is the temp of the water. I'm really looking forward to the experience on the beach vs. in the church building though.

Hope you have a great time at Disney tomorrow! That is the type of weather we loved when we'd go to Sesame Place. Even if there was a shower, we'd just wait it out doing indoor stuff or eating a meal.

A Boston Terrier.

I think it's silly to pay $500 and drive 600+ miles for a pure-bred when there are soooo many really cute mutts at the pound, but it ain't my call.

But secretly I can't wait for some puppy breath and those little sharp teeth. <squeeee!>

We got a shitload of snow yesterday and last night. Some parts of the metro got a foot.
That really sucks but I will still trade your snow for our rain.

BTW, it is snowing outside RIGHT now. Yesterday it was in the 60s and almost 70, today it is snowing. Really, snow ice pellets. They hurt.

Our Duluth office is closed. Coworker up there has 18 inches of new snow on her driveway.

MIL has been warning the girls all week about being deligent about putting away toys/stuffed animals. I'm sure one of them will learn the hard way to keep stuff away from the puppy, however. Hopefully it will be something that is not precious.

Jmw, don't you already have a faith? And you've already been baptized? SO is this similar to a renewal of wedding vows? ;)

My first hint with my puppy was the fact that, when I went to go see her at the rescue, she started chewing the shoe I was wearing!!!
