HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Weekend plans?
A whole lotta not much! But since DMB was last weekend and the party that I bought the little black dress for is next weekend, a chill weekend in between is fine.

I mentioned to you guys a few weeks ago that my friend A is back with the crazy boyfriend from last winter. She says he's changed (been in therapy, recognized the crazy and dialed it way down) and has stuck to the changes so far. I had a talk with my friend S about this yesterday and he gave me good advice: I spoke up last winter, now I need to keep my mouth shut unless I want to risk ruining my friendship with A.

ITA with friend S. Sucks, don't it, when your friend is dating a dickhead.

This weekend...
Scraping barnacles! Got boat on friends lift, neighbor is going to let me borrow power washer, and I have 3 putty knives for what the washer does not remove.

Once that is done, I can get boat on the AirDock and turn existing floaty boat dock into a real dock that is floating, with table,chairs and fire pit. Is gonna be awesome!

Sure does.

The thing is, even if he HAS changed and got the crazy under control, there are still other deal-breakers (politics & religion... A has talked to me about this). And in my personal opinion, he's just not that much fun to be around. D called him a bump on a log and it's true... over 4th of July, he was buried in his smartphone while the three of us were talking and laughing.

Sounds like you'll be hosting a Topix party soon!

WEEKEND: I have my SIL and niece and nephew in town this week, so they are here until Sunday. I think we are going to the beach tomorrow if the weather isn't bad.
Sunday my daughter has a vocal recital, then Sunday night I am headed to Orlando to stay at one of the theme park resorts for a few days with the family.

I am REALLY bummed, though, becaus i have to miss the Monkees concert. I can't REMEMBER when I've missed one of their concerts! And it's the first tour without Davy (and with Mike Nesmith). I hope they don't miss me too much.

THe link didn't work so I googled it. I don't understand what the point of that is. Is it just to raise it out of the water some?

Legendary guitarist/musician Nils Lofgren is a HUGE sports fan. Of course, lots of pro athletes are big music fans, so it's kind of fun when two guys who are mutual fans of each other meet up!

Cute FB post for you Jesus lovers:

Sometimes life leaves me feeling empty and alone. But I always look to Jesus for my strength and healing. Maybe some pasta for the empty feeling.

well, since it's been raining all morning, i won't be able to do the yard work that needs doing. part of that is the weed warfare. i planned to be at it like flies on $h!t this year, but it's either been too wet or too hot to spray like i need to... <sigh>

so, i think i'll be sewing tonight and some of tomorrow, and sunday i have the 3 of baby showers this year (next weekend is hte 4th one). no offense to my south-suburban living cousins, but i'm tired of driving!(shouldnt complain too much - there are 3 otehrs from an hour+ north of me who show up!)
