It's Friday, it's Friday, it's Friday! Can you tell I'm happy about that?

I live for weekends...and this one is shaping up to be perfect...YAY!

Abbey is home with me today. The elementary school is out for a teacher workday. She's thrilled; her sister and brother are NOT. They've has CSAP testing (Colorado Student Assessment Program) all week and the only good thing I have to say about that is that teachers don't assign homework during the testing weeks. I love homework-free evenings.

In other news, Sarah's lost cell phone was FOUND!
After five days and a couple of phone calls from me, John stepped in and GOT THINGS MOVIN'. I hate that it sometimes takes a man getting involved to make things happen, but (sigh) sometimes it does. Within a couple of hours of his phone call, Sarah had her phone back. I mistakenly deleted the post about it her phone falling down the elevator shaft at her school. I was thankful it was found...and that it works! 

Here's some random pics from my camera (that I downloaded when I downloaded the pic above).
They've grown on me. Ha ha. 

This picture makes me laugh. Will's shirt says: DUDE, I'M RIGHT HERE. It's even funnier to me since Will dressed up like Waldo last Halloween

And one more:
I don't know why I took a picture of this other than it made me laugh. Jack-the-still-overweight-beagle had a vet appointment this morning to get his nails clipped and his "glands" expressed. OH MY WORD you have no idea how much that last phrase grosses me out and the fact that we have to spend money to have that done every month just pushes me over the top. 

But do you see what's written below it? Lunch/Recycling/Jeans? John and I had a hot date yesterday. He took me to lunch at PFChangs (my favorite, and a true sacrifice for him since he doesn't "love" it) and then we dropped off our recycling (yeah, I'm still not paying for curbside service) and on our way home we stopped by the western store and he got some new Levis. He wears a hard to find size and I love to tease him about it. We had a GREAT couple of hours together and the highlight of our drive home was seeing the new storefront for the new pinkberry that is opening soon in Colorado Springs. I screamed when we drove past it. I was seriously THAT excited. Now I won't have to drive to Denver to enjoy my favorite frozen yogurt. I'm really hoping this new store is open by spring break, which begins in exactly two weeks and YES, I'm counting.

I think that's all I've got for today. I have a long list of errands and stuff that needs to get finished today so that our weekend can be enjoyed by all. Peace out, peeps. And HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!

every time I take my dog to get groomed my husband says make sure you get her glands expressed and I gag. Seriously, I can relate. And YAY for Pinkberry! So happy you are getting one. I love it and crave it regularly!

Her smile says it all!

Every one needs a sign hanging in their house that says "anus".

Nice happy post.

Your luv bug pets totally crack me up. And the dog...ewwwwww. Oh, PF Chang's sells meals for 2 in the freezer section at the grocery store and they are YUMMMMM! You basically just dump the package into a skillet, cover it, and you've got PF Chang's in 12 minutes. (Make your own rice.)

Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt said...

Oh, and I can't believe they make you pay for curbside recycling.

I don't want to talk about the dog's issues except to say that Gina's comment without the back story is so funny.

Sarah has the best smile. Seriously.

Will doesn't look like the same kid since his haircut!

I'm happy for the weekend, too. Our kids are off for a teacher work day Monday and we've been working on our To Do list today so that we can play on Monday!
