Weekend in Review

I hope your weekend was enjoyable.   Ours was nice.   Not to busy.  We were all home a lot.  Weather was wonderful.  Here are the highlights:

Hubby and Harry went to see the Spurs on Friday night.  Chip was supposed to go with them, but he stayed home with me and barfed.  Me and Chip watched Monsters University between cleanup sessions so it wasn't so bad.  Chip felt fantastic on Saturday so it was just a weird little stomach bug. 

Saturday, I got in a great walk with Beth on Saturday morning and then did some serious housecleaning.  It was overdue.  The boys cleaned their rooms really well.  Hubby cleaned up the garage.  I cleaned the fridge within an inch of its life and then went to the grocery store it filled it to the brim.  Made some football game snacks and a big batch of turkey chili.  Yummy. 

We got the Halloween decorations put away and the Christmas decorations out of the attic - we haven't put them out, but the storage bins are now in the guest room so they will be easy to get to when it is time. 

We watched the Bama game and it was outstanding.  A little too close for comfort - as is the norm.  Funny how the score after the game always seems like it wasn't a nail biter when in fact it was very stressful.  Happy we pulled that one out.  Now to get by that damn Auburn!  When did they get so good?  

Harry's girl came over to watch the game and she is just adorable.  She even wore an Alabama shirt, so bonus points for her!  She was very out going with tons of personality.  Does not appear to have a shy bone in her body.  She jumped right in to our crazy Alabama watching shenanigans without batting an eye.  And they won, so maybe we can ask her to come back again.  

I walked with Beth and Annette again this morning and we were busting a move.  I think we walked a little over 5 1/2 miles or so both Saturday and Sunday and did it at a 15 minute per mile pace.  That is hoofing.  My hips were really talking to me afterwards. 

I found and bought a new couch today!  Yay!  Placed my order and it will be delivered on Friday.  Now to figure out what to do with the old couch.  It is not in very good shape, but not something you can just take to the curb.  Hmmm.  Need to figure that one out.  Of course getting a new couch leads to needing a new rug, throw pillows and some lamps in the den.  It is always something, isn't it?  Should be fun to change things up a bit.

I hope your weekend was great and that you can find some joy in the Monday ahead!  I know I can!
