Weekend Wrap-Up

Hello bloggers! So how was everyone's weekend? I'm not as anxious about today being Sunday and tomorrow is the dreaded Monday, like I normally am. I think it's because I know it's going to be a short week and I'm ready, so ready for it! Aren't you??? I love Thanksgiving! It's a great holiday, love the food, love the family get-togethers and the obligatory Thanksgiving-eve celebration with friends. Good times, good times.

My weekend started with our family going away dinner for my dad. He actually left on Saturday evening instead of Sunday, as I posted earlier. We had a great time, talking and laughing and cutting up with my brothers and sister and parents. You know what I find so interesting? The fact that even though my parents have been divorced for almost 20 years they are the best of friends. Their relationship is better now than it was when they were married. My dad landed in Managua safely, thank God. And I spoke to him earlier this evening, he's excited, and very glad to be there.

Saturday I had dinner with the investment banker. For those of you keeping track, that would make date number 5. He made dinner for us and we watched a movie. We seem to always have something to say to each other and have the best conversations! So far, so good. We shall see...

And this bring me to today. I ran into an old friend at church. It was bittersweet. Sigh... Moving on, alright since Shady (you know who you are) brought it up, I'm forced to address it. :) While I do not like football, and don't understand it, I am a Texans fan -on occassion. lol They lost (again) today, but that's not the story, the story is how they lost and what an emotional rollercoaster ride they put us (the fans) through. We went from being ecstatic to shock, to bewilderment, to anger, to stunned all in 44 seconds. Bleh! I can't wait for baseball season!!!

This was my weekend. -that's a wrap!

Sorry your Texans choked, Yvonne. I feel ya and I've been put through the same emotional ringer many times by the Tampa Bay Bucs. I'm glad to know your dad had a safe flight, wasn't too shaken up by it, and landed safely. It's always nice, especially around the holidays, when families can spend time together in harmony and put the past behind them as your parents have been able to do. Also happy to know that all is going well for you on the dating front and that you seem to be in "up time" aside from being bummed out over your home team losing. I hope you have a great (short) week, my friend!

I'm glad the dates are going so well. He cooked dinner! I was born a generation too late. My daughter Sandra's husband is a gourmet cook. I married a man who can't find the tub of butter in the fridge without help. (but that's ok, some day I'll find a use for him).

Have a very happy Thanksgiving. We have already had ours in Canada.

Lucky date number 5. Well, if you can still speak in full sentences to each other, I think you're on to something. Just don't marry him, then he'll turn into a grunter.
