i read a couple lovely romances this weekend, Sand Dollar and The Eldest Son (i don't like that title for this story, but it was a fabulous book!). now i'm reading Secret Vampire, which is a story in LJ Smith's NightWorld series. (sidebar, sad news, april told me today that Secret Circle has been cancelled. she & trish & i are pretty upset! :( )
*sigh* thankfully, there is some good news in the renewal circle - Once Upon A Time & Grimm are both coming back. yay!!
anywhoo! did everyone have a good mother's day? i had the opportunity to bless some lives, which was really neat. God does work in mysterious ways sometimes, tho. i set out to go to kohl's to get mom & grammy's chocolate (they have these yummy godiva chocolate bars there...), but on my way there i had a panic attack & just felt like i really did not want to go to kohl's. it was the strangest thing! i decided not to go to kohl's, but to stop at starbuck's for 1/2 off a green tea frapp & maybe afterwards head to kohl's. except after the buck's, i went to the PO to mail some bills. i didn't have everything in a neat pile like usual, so i took a couple minutes to find everything & get it in the box. then, i should have turned right to go down to grammy's to deliver her card, but i turned left like i was going back home.
all of this happened to i would be at a particular stop sign JUST as a particular couple were crossing the street. they were an older couple, and as they were crossing, i made eye contact w/ the woman & smiled at her. she came over & said happy mother's day, and my first thought was 'Okay, crazy lady.' and i said happy mother's day in return. then she asked if i could help them, and i said, "maybe," because if she needed money or something i was not going to be able to help. but she explained that she & her husband had recently moved from chicago to help their daughter out w/ the birth of a new baby, and that her daughter was at the hospital today to have the baby & they needed a ride. i had a peace about this & said, "sure, hope in." because it's chloe & i live in the car sometimes, (not literally), i had to clean it up a bit. and then i accidentally tried to take off while eddie wasn't fully in the car. whoops. ilene & eddie were their names (i think - why didn't i write this down last night? oh yeah, i was reading...LOL).
so, i took them to the hospital - well i took them to golden corral because they decided they needed to eat something before going to the hospital & said they could walk from there. i was quite happy to be able to help!
i still didn't make it to kohl's, tho! but i went today after work, so it's all good. : ) i got 3 candybars for FREE because i had a $10 certificate from them. woot! i like being paid to shop!! heh.
anyway, after all that i just went down to mom's & hung out there, reading & watching food network shows til the SURVIVOR finale started. even tho i was rooting for someone other than who won, i do think she deserved it! she played a HARD game, good strategic & social game. she kinda reminded me of rob, i think i mentioned before... except i still like rob BETTER but what do ya do? LOL
oh, saturday night when i went over there, leyton & i had some fun. we played catch/volleyball before he went to the circus w/ gramma. he also played a game where he hit darts w/ a toy hammer... and one of them landed thunk & stuck on dad's painting. it was hilarious!
later that night, after they returned and before bath, leyton had fun showing off his new toy, of course a laser ray gun that made noise. LOL and he also enjoyed playing in a storage bin... i dragged him along the kitchen floor a bit like a race car just for fun. : ) just to hear him laugh, really. heh. it worked!
ummm... what else this weekend? i watched the shadow & some WM family movie night movies (love!), game of your life & secrets of the mountain. woot! i need to find the who is simon miller one... (i always want to say "who is simon baker?" but i know who that is - The Mentalist! LOL)
today i had to visit my regular doctor ($75, ugh) who told me that i don't have any infections (yay!) or TMJ (yay!) but that it looks like an inflamed nerve (boo) and i'll just have to deal w/ it & stay on some meds until it (eventually) goes away. (boo) so, idk. sometimes it feels like it's getting better & sometimes it feels like it's getting worse if i don't take something (either the vicodin or IB) at regular intervals. (still saving the vicodin for bedtime, which seems to be a good time for it, even tho i CAN take it during the day.)
heard from sarah - her mom is doing well & the tests all came back NOT CANCER so praise Jesus for that!!
when i got home tonight, i (oh shoot, i just remembered i was supposed to stop at mom's to pick something up i left there & i forgot. shoot. i'll have to do that tomorrow!) watched Grimm, Once Upon A Time, Celebrity Apprentice (YES!!!!!) & Psych. : ) excellent hulu night!!
now i think i'll read & then hit the zzzz's because, well, i'm tired! have to remember NOT to eat anything because i have labs in the morning. (darn, i was just thinking a snack would be good...oh well...)
hope you have a great tuesday!
