A Good Laugh

I had a pretty good weekend. I got my house cleaning and laundry done. I didn't make it to the library as I remembered that morning that it was Vetern's Day the library would be closed. That just gave me more time to go to the LNS and see what I could find! I bought the 2006 & 2005 JCS Ornament issues. I also bought a beautiful ornament off the ornament tree and with my donation I received a freebie packet.

I had planned on having a quiet Saturday night but I knew that wasn't going to happen as soon as I pulled into the driveway. I was accosted by 5 girls ranging from 12-14 years old. Apparently, the girls' friends showed up right after I left to go shopping so Mike didn't get his peaceful day either. The day ended up with Allie having one girl spend the night here and Krissy went to her friend's house. We had to run to the girl's house to pick up clothes for her. So, while I am waiting on the girls to get their stuff so we can go back home the girls come up to from behind talking about how cute this pet was(I forget the name) and I needed to see her. I turn around to what I swear was a rat! Yep, I screamed and jumped like a little girl. I was expecting a kitty or a puppy since they have 4 dogs and a couple of cats. The girls were laughing hysterically at me and so were the other adults. I took it all in stride as the girls explained it was a cousin of the gerbil or something like that but they still couldn't talk me into petting it! I just couldn't make myself touch something that looks like a rat. Needless to say that was just the beginning of the sleep over.

I didn't get to relax on Sunday either since we had to go out to FIL's house for a visit. By the time we got back it was time to start supper and then showers for the kids. So today I am going to sit down and stitch this afternoon!
