Manic Monday....and much, much more!

Oh my God, what a week! Last Wednesday was Daniel's last football game. Friday night I worked the gate at the football game. Saturday afternoon Steven rolled into town, Saturday night we went out to celebrate a year together, and Sunday Joseph and "The Singing Hoosiers" came to Providence to perform! It has been awesome and I am exhausted! Here are some pictures:



Daniel finished the season having played 3 good games, and with the thanks of his coach for keeping at it. All the coaches said, "We wish we could have had you all year!" I was really proud of him!










Doesn't my boy look handsome in his tux?
You should have heard them sing!



















HERE is the proof in pictures that Steven and I "tied one on" Saturday night. We went to dinner, and then to a bar called "Howl at the Moon" at Louisville's 4th Street Live. It featured a duo of piano players, who play off each other with a back-up band, and took requests. In the spirit of celebration (and a little bit of "what the hell"), we tried one of these test-tube shots. The one we tried was called....um....."Hot Wet Pussy" and contained vodka and triple sec. I am NOT really a drinker, but this was really good. And fun. But since I couldn't down my first one in one try, I begged Steven to try another one. So we did! Since I had already had a large, fruity drink before the shots, I of course followed them up with a rum and Diet Coke. Let's just say Steven had to drive us home. I was a little fuzzy. Hee, hee.

Oh yeah....and it's Manic Monday time again:



How long does it take you to get out of bed in the morning? Most mornings I get right up. Today I was persuaded to stay in a little longer. (wink)

Do you usually sleep on one side of the bed or another? Yes, the left. Although after Steven has been here, I tend to drift over to "his" side, thinking of him.

Something you wish to accomplish before the end of the year: I hope to lose 24 more pounds before January 1.

Hope everyone had as happy a Monday as I did!

You've had a crazy-busy week. :)

Vodka and triple sec? Oh my!

You are going to have to call me one day when you are in town and we'll do lunch.

Good luck on your goal- that is fantastic!

Hey! There you are!!! I was wondering what kind of crazy week you've been having since you haven't posted in a few days....

Wow - has it already been a year? Guess time flies when you're having fun, eh?

Your kids are gorgeous. And I would have had a HUGE crush on your boys if they had appeared anywhere in my childhood/teenage years.

Lisa - I would LOVE to have lunch with you. I would even drive all the way to Indy for that!

Sayre - Yep, it's been a whirlwind. And yes, time DOES fly! We made a toast in the bar to another year!

Faiqa - I agree, they ARE cute! I love 'em. I'm sure my boys would have loved you, too.

Brother Dave - When I hit that magic number, the "I'm a hottie" pics WILL be posted. (smile) Thanks for the compliments on my kids.

Sybil - Thanks. I collect them as we go along, and then all of a sudden I just have to let 'em go.

E.Craig - Every once in awhile I have to pop my buttons a bit. I try to restrain myself.

Just Dave - On my back. Goofy.

Superwoman - Yeah, the waitress was almost as stable as we were! Har, har! Thanks for the congrats! I hope we have another!
