i ended up not leaving for lunch & just reading til it was time to leave for the party.
the party was fun! i did not skate, tho. i got snuggle time w/ baby andrew while everyone else was occupied, and that was quite a delight for me!! he's such a happy baby! there was pizza at the party, and it was rather good for cheese pizza. : ) but i ate one piece too many & then i felt blah later, so i fetched a salad from target. turned out to be a really good salad - romaine, goat cheese, strawberries & blueberries & a poppyseed dressing. oh, and chicken. heh.
kathryn received lots of nice gifts & she really enjoyed opening them!!
the venue wasn't crowded by any means, but with like 20 ppl in kathryn's party, there were a lot of ppl about! after a couple hours, my ppl meter was getting in the red, so i took my leave. i needed socks, which is how i ended up at target. i also thought maybe i could find Enthralled. no dice. gonna have to give in & order it from amazon, i think. I WANT THAT BOOK! i did find the second Entity book by Cat Devon, tho, so that was cool. i finished If He's Tempted before bed - very good! ironically, both It Happened One Midnight and If He's Tempted featured rescued children & both authors did an AMAZING job with that storyline! i started Lynsay's The Perfect Wife & am so far enjoying it. of course, i love lynsay's style. : )
today i slept til about 9:30 - it was hard to get up this morning! last day of vacation blues. LOL i got dressed & packed up, cleaned up the hotel room to make sure i had everything - the usual, then settled in to read for an hour or so before leaving. all of a sudden there was a BANGING at my door! i was like, WTH? i thought it was at the neighbor's door, but then it kept happening & i recognized it was at my door. i swung back the curtains to see a kid about anthony's age. i opened the door & said, "hello. that was rather rude." he was super embarrassed & polite after the fact - wrong room, obviously! i sent him on his way w/ a chuckle & a "that's okay/no worries" cuz i didn't want him to feel bad! *laugh*
i went back to reading for a bit & then headed out. i stopped at the front desk for some take-home cookies & went to joy's parents' house to wish her mom a happy birthday & visit for awhile. :) i love her family!
then it was time to hit the road, but i needed some lunch, so i stopped at the BK. they have yummy iced coffee, btw. : ) the trip home was nice for the most part. there were a couple illinois drivers along the way who were trying to get themselves or others killed, but thank God He kept everyone safe!!
got into town around 5:30 & decided i wanted another lovely salad for dinner, so i stopped in at target. got some bux, also. :) then headed to mom's to watch BB - they finally addressed some of the racist remarks that have been happening this season. oye.
got home about 8:30 & angel seemed a little pissed at me - she pooped in the bathroom (which, if she'd pooped in the TOILET in the bathroom, that would have been alright... LOL phil had done a good job of cleaning out her litter, so she had to have been having a go at me. brat. *laugh* she's being snuggly now, so i think she's better.
saw a fb post about a new book coming out in november that looks AWESOME - Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye. she apparently has some vampire books i need to be checking out, as well... *grin* i love discovering new authors to read!!
ummm... yeah, i think that's quite a long enough sharing session for today!! LOL PTL i get to sleep in tomorrow & don't have to be at work til like 11. woot!
how'd your weekend go??? ttfn! <3 ya! : )
