well, the weekend is basically over and tomorrow it's back to work. boring, long summer months w/ nothing to do. there's nothing that makes the day go slower than a day sitting at your desk w/ absolutely NO work.
the weekend was pretty uneventful altho my SIL did get a little kitten for her son. the kitten is the cutest little thing and full of such spunk. she runs around w/ major attitude - gosh, i can only imagine what it'll be like when it gets older! her son loves the kitten though and i think they'll become the best of friends. the kitty already likes chasing him or running after them. she puffs up her tail and gallops across the room and she plays w/ him when he's near her.
at first i was really against them getting a kitten for him. he's young and little kids don't know how to handle animals. but, he's really good w/ her and hasn't tried hurting her or anything and she isn't a bit afraid of him. he has a sweet little heart and i'm sure she can sense it. my other SIL hates animals and is completely against animals in the house.... so this will be a tough fight to win. i'm hoping she comes around... but it could take a while. if only she could see how absolutely sweet and adorable the little thing is... but i'm not sure she'll allow herself that luxury. they've had to get rid many a cat because of it... and i just hope beyond all hope that this little kitty isn't the next in line. it breaks my heart each and every time and, really, i've grown quite cold over all of it... but i'm hope that this time it'll be different.
hubby has been pretty busy in the studio but, even still, we snuck away for a good breakfast this morning at Johnnie Rockets. don't know if any of you have tried the place but it's really good. they have american style breakfasts and they're yummy. much better than Fuddruckers... but I've never been a fan of that restaurant. i happen to like omelettes and Johnnie Rockets does 'em up like no one else from what i can tell. they have good french toast and pancakes too, and the place isn't costly.
i've been waiting for over a week now to get a box thru FedEx from my mother and sister. it really eerks me because FedEx is known for their speedy service (and you pay out the wazoo for this service!), but this box is taking an especially long time. it finally arrived into Bahrain yesterday but i couldn't pick it up because it had to go thru customs. now... i hope it's ready tomorrow. i'm so anxious to get this box. it's filled w/ all sorts of goodies and birthday presents!!!! :) which... happen to be my favorite... well, ok... i love christmas presents too :)
my sister packed some beer nuts in the box for the hubby... i'm wondering if they'll pull them because they say "beer". i hope not. it's not that they're made w/ beer... they're just called beer nuts. w/ all the commotion and such in london as of late... i sure hope i get some of things i know my sis sent... like my favorite shower gels from Bath & Body Works. i'm practically out of everything and it'll really piss me off if they're pulled from my box. my sis sent some Kool Aid too.... yummmm... can't wait to get that. i'm asking for one flavor that i love but i'm not sure they found.... Jamaica flavor... it's so good. but i don't think they found it this time. i've loved Kool Aid since i was a young girl. i made some a few wks ago and served it to a friend of hubby's, but it didn't have enough sugar and was too weak (which i always have probs w/)... so i'm sure he wasn't too impressed and wondered what in the hell i was going on about. i've finally found a good pitcher though that i can judge the water level... so the last few pitchers i've made have been quite good. i've wondered why they don't sell that here... and another item that i'd love to see in the stores is Country Time Lemonaid. mmmmmm... now i love that stuff!! i haven't had that in so long. it's delish! so refreshing.
in these hot summer months, i find that i really long for these things. i've been making Kool Aid like crazy over the last few months. i suck it down before the hubby even gets a few glasses! he likes to sneak in the kitchen and drink it all and not tell me.... so i have to drink it before he can! ;) ;) lucky for both of us that my sis is sending more! and it better be plenty if she knows what's good for her!
well, that's about all for me. i've pretty much had a non-eventful weekend but i hope all of you that are about to start yours have a great one! and for all of you about to start back to work.... fun fun fun fun fun! NOT
