That was the week that was

It seems like the weeks are speeding by.  I use to blog every day and sometimes more than once a day and now, I feel I am lucky if I work in a post a month.  I am not going to quit is my journal so to speak and I can go back and see what was happening a year ago or two or three.  Meanwhile, I'll do my best.

E and I tried a new restaurant just up the road opposite from in town, Salt and Pepper.  While I was not thrilled with my meal (white gravy on a pork tenderloin and no mention of the gravy which was way too heavy and without much flavor on the menu).  E's fries were good and so was my Navy bean soup.  This is just a picayune complaint of mine but I do NOT like to be referred to as 'youse' and my husband called 'pal' by the wait staff.  A bit too familiar for someone we did not know.  Just sayin'.

 It has been an incredibly busy week for us.  Met Jacque and Cynthia at Posh on Wed.  Our pal, Diane, was not feeling tip top.  I had xrays and ultra sounds on my knee and now have to make an ortho specialist appointment.  No one has mentioned the lump and that was my problem, not pain. Oh well.  E also had a dr. apt. for his hip...this getting old is not for the faint of heart!  I had WW weigh in and was a lb under my goal weight.  Yeah! Thurs was my first of the drop in crops, Come Crop with Jules at Posh Scraps.  Had 3 ladies come by and one is my ever favorite, Eileen Scott. Missed you, Diane (my other ever favorite student).  They are both going to the Cheeky Chics crop in St. Pete in Nov.  This is going to be such fun.

The school called Colvin's dad on Thrus saying C was running a temp of 103.  Chris was home sick himself.  We picked up Landon that afternoon after my crop and watched the kids a bit.  By the time we got to the boys' house, Colvin's temp was down to 99.6.

Thurs night we met up with Janet and Bob at the Crab House in Palmetto which is almost half way for both of us.  The company was excellent as always and the food was pretty good too.

The four of us shared the most decadent dessert to celebrate Bob and E's Sept. birthdays.  They had reverse ones this year...Bob at 76 and E at 67.

We had all 3 kids on Friday.  Kristen had a chiro apt. and then she and Leighton were leaving for the airport and St. Louis.  Colvin could not go back to school until 24 hours after the temp had gone down and we threw Landon into the mix for the fun of it.  E took Leighton and K to the airport and Chris came over after he got off work, had supper with us and then took the boys home.  E and I collapsed .

Spent most of yesterday working on some projects for Creative Imaginations and Gecko Galz so watch my other blog for some updates.  I am also working on a JOY mini album to teach at Posh Scraps in Palm Harbor in early Nov and a fun make n take for Halloween at the store.  Dates and times to be announced later along with some sneak peeks.

Got some great news today.  Our friend, Pam Bennett, is coming for a visit in Feb.  She, Janet and I along with hopefully about a dozen of our pals will be attending Dee Wishart's Cheeky Chics crop Feb 2-4 .

Janet, Jacque, Cynthia, Diane and a few others are all heading to the Krop for Kids in St. Pete at the Forum next weekend...counting the days.

Hope everyone has a great week and Happy Fall to one and All.

Hope your week was a good one.

I was a great evening meeting you for dinner. I'm really looking forward to the crop this weekend and spending time with you and the girls.
