We just got back from taking The Boy out for a birthday brunch. I’m telling you, we don’t have parties anymore as he has outgrown that at age 11 but the celebration just keeps on going. He went to a water park when we were in Palm Desert. He went to Six Flags all day yesterday and then we had brunch this morning. Then next week he’s going to the beach with a friend for more celebrating. I guess he takes after me! He wants to stretch it out as long as possible. Who wouldn’t if given the chance?
Right now I am reading Fear The Worst . I’m really into it but it’s been a busy week so I have only been reading it in spurts.
You are probably wondering about the title to this post. Well, after my washer overflowed last week I decided to buy a new washer/dryer set. It was scheduled to be delivered in the afternoon but they have been calling me all morning asking me if they can deliver it early. Well…no because we aren’t home.
Well, now we ARE home and they called again to ask if they can bring it. I said “yes” and we are still waiting for it!
UPDATE: They just came. Whew!
What I Did
I reviewed one book this week, Ugly Man by Dennis Cooper. It’s was a seriously interesting read. I learned that I am quite twisted and demented and it warms my heart to know that some of you will read it just to see how disturbed I truly am. That’s blog love.
I survived my last week on the Game On Diet. I will post an update tomorrow but it was a fun experience to do this as a group. The team aspect definitely kept me in check.
