Wine and Dine

***Saturday mornings are filled with such hope in our house. We have two whole days to do whatever we want. So this is what we did. After pancakes, sausage and bacon for breakfast, Pmo set out to replace lumber on the patio that had rotted. I started reorganizing the garage to set up a recycling area. I helped Pmo cut the lumber when he needed me, and I planted some tomatoes. We took a break and ate lunch in the house, then headed outside again to check the gutters. Pmo blew tons and tons of helicopters off of the roof with the leaf blower while I supervised from the ground. We walked the dogs around the neighborhood for a bit, then got ready to go out to eat. On the way, we stopped at the Pet Food Center and Goodwill and purchased a hummingbird feeder and a work bench. Dinner at the Red Robin was pretty good. It was noisy and they forgot to put our name on the list, but otherwise, very filling. I got a cheeseburger with bacon and an egg. Back at home, we watched "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," a movie I had borrowed from the library for free, and drank some Stone Hill wine. Vignoles. Tasted like apricot, so good!
***Sunday started out with donuts and the newspaper. Except I never got to read the actual news. I just perused the ads and we were off and running again. Pmo hung his birdfeeder then we went back to Goodwill to pick up the work bench. We also stopped by Sears to pick up some hooks to hang up my bicycle in the garage. We stopped at the Pet Food Center again to buy some flowers and then one more stop at the Country Store in Newburgh which also had a plethora of plants. At home, I got the notion to start attacking some out of control bushes with the clippers. Pmo says I shiskabobbed them. While I worked in the ran, he made a place in the garage for his workbench. It turned out to be a little small but it will work for now. I went back inside to review my purchases from Kohl's and decided to take two pairs of shorts back. Then I made chicken vegetable medley for dinner and spice cake for dessert. We settled in for the Apprentice where 3 celebrities were kicked off. I knew it would come down to Annie and Joan. It's the perfect catfight.
***Today, I did some more shopping. I stopped in at Walgreen's, Kohl's, then Target. I didn't find a lot I liked at Target, but I ended up with a pair of shorts, a shirt, and some other stuff. To make myself feel better, I'm going to try to make a big payment on my credit card next paycheck. The guilt is driving me nuts. And with a little help from savings, I should be able to cut the amount in half. Problem is, the other half remains.

Wow, you guys are so productive on weekends. When we have those kids of productive days N gets all "we are always going nonstop..." Ha!

He is going to be butt hurt now. LOL. We've been having weekends like those for a while now, especially since we are trying to get so much done before baby comes.
