Okay Weekend I Guess

We had an okay weekend.

Saturday we had a party to go to given by my co-worker for her hub's 40th birthday. She wanted it to be a surprise party, but having about 100 people in the backyard and tons on cars parked outside was a bit of a spoiler. Still, he looked sufficiently pleased. I'm glad as I saw how much work she put into this party - planning it for the past two months. She did an awesome job and it looked like everyone was having a nice time!

Sunday we got our butts moving and started the process of moving Sammy downstairs so she can have her own space. She's been sleeping on a futon downstairs (in our former lounge) for most of the summer. Today we moved most of her clothes down and bought her a hamper.

Last week, I neglected to mention that we went to IKEA for the first time (for both of us). And I bought Sammy a crystal chandelier - the IKEA name for it is "Rimfrost," so take that as you will. Sammy needs a place of her own to escape from Stella (and us I guess) and hang out.

IKEA was interesting. It was just Sam and me and we had no mission in mind, so we just went with the flow. I picked up hanging organizers for the girls, a tiny hippo for Stella, a baggie dispenser, a birch salad bowl, a birch lazy susan, a couple of whisks and a salad spinner. And the aforementioned chandelier. Oh, and chocolate. And impulse buy, but terribly necessary.

This week I have the day off tomorrow as Stella has her eye appt checkup. Sammy is doing the YMCA camp W-F and Monday and Tuesday, she's working with the city's Puppet Wagon and will be making puppets and scenery and will be performing on Tuesday night. I'm sure we'll get some pictures up for that.

Last week Sammy took an introductory Lacrosse class from M-Th and worked her little butt off. My dad took some pictures and and she was all over the place, running and blocking. She's glad that's over and that puppetry will likely be needing less exertion.

Well, this was a rambling post. Happy Sunday. Have a great week!
