I'm probably rushing the season with this autumn graphic,, but just got back from the grocery store and I bought a box of gourds.   All colors and weird shapes, very cute.     Now I'm just waiting for the gardener to come. 

I really don't have any plans for the weekend (even the groceries are bought).... yesterday dh and I went for a stroll in the city (practicing my crowd handling skills),,,, it went OK, not great but OK this time,, but was exhausted when we got home.  We stopped in the Ocui restaurant and had salad and a pizza bread for dinner, it was nice.  Weather is gorgeous today and will be until Monday....

So what are you all up to this weekend?

Bunny, here's a suggestion........ (and not a particulary healthy one but .... who cares??????) appetizer: bring chips (kids love them) ,,,,, dessert : bring ice cream : kids love that too...... voila you didn't have to bake or make a thing. All that you can pick up at the gas station on the way over to the BBQ.

OR, "get a headache" and then your dh can take everyone over and you can stay h
ome and have the house to yourself.

Or hope a plane to timbuktoo...... LOLLLOLOLOLOL (don't tell anyone where you are off too.

I'm in a weird mood.,, just hate seeing you so tired....

lol..wish it was that easy !!!!!...ha-ha-...u clearly don't know DH !!!!! Anywho...there will be NO kids at this BBQ...actually not even a BBQ....all Italian food...served inside...then eat where-ever u want..in or out by the pool !

I am tempted to just bring the ripple chips & my shrimp dip...but I already bought all the "extra" ingred to make the Oatmeal butterscotch bars (w.wht chocolate chips)..I actually want to eat them...that is why I will make them !!

lol...don't laugh..I am tempted to hop a plane/scooter/bike/truck ...anything...to Timbuktoo !!...You r not in a weird mood....cuz I am in that type of mood all the time !! I hate seeing me soo tired too !..No kids this am & I got 3 hours sleep !!!! What is that ? Many other issues still rambling around this brain...wishing there was a switch...to just shut it OFF !! I just can't stop thinking !!! urghhhhhhhh.A Mother thing...I guess !!

OH Bunny I feel for you. I had one of those dumb nights last night,,, woke up around 3 and my head flooded wiith everthing but the kitchen sink,,, so much to think over when you're sleeping..... FOR PITY'S SAKE,,,,,, LOL (yes a mother thing)

Enjoy the Italian food day and glad there are no kids, many times just being able to have an adult conversation with no kids around it restful. Enjoy the butterscotch bars,, I can just see you eating the whole batch and ending up on a "sugar high"...

People r becoming concerned over my weight lose...asking if I feel ok....r u alright !!!! urghhhh... I WANT to gain weight....I was told I looked like a stick woman.....NICE thank you very much !!

It truly was NOT a relaxing night.. We got poured upon.....hostess...aka sil (dh's sis) was anal about cleaning up...to the point if u left a glass half empty...she picked it up & thru it out....leaning over ur shoulder wiping the table..(to everyone..NOT just me) drove everyone nuts..we told her to sit down..RELAX !!!!.......THEN DH was the poster-child for that saying...."Instant a$$hole...just add alcohol".......grrrrrrr...........then I told him he was NOT driving home...as I was rounding up my "stuff"...who had the car running..sitting IN the driver's seat ??!!!!!!............He was NOT getting out of that seat ! I was called every name in the book....his other sister (that I was driving home too) talked to him..his nephew talked to him.....THE I went temporarily..out of my mind...screaming....name calling slamming....NOT a pretty sight..& NO..I was NOT drinking ! I was gonna call a cab...& let the stubborn ole coot drive himself ! BIL's brother was there too...he is a cop & told Mike , there is a road block at the end of the street.....& there was !!!

Well..needless to say..it was NOT relaxing !!!! No Harley ride today either...urghhh ! Went for 4 walks today !!!...ok now I will shut-up !!! Tks for "listening"

BUNNY...Oh..My..Gawd!!! What a mess!!! I can understand you losing it and blowing up!! Geez, you're going through so much crap all the time, you didn't need this thing with your dh on top of it all!! I really feel for you!!

About the weightloss...if you're that thin now, I can understand people's concerns about it, but they could be nicer about it too!! Take good care of yourself, stay strong, and you know the saying..."Hang in there!!"
