My weekend...

OKay...I did have a wonderful weekend, but before I get into that, I am going to vent about work for one paragraph!!!

I have stated before that I don't have my internet set up at the new apartment (and I still haven't done it yet) - so this morning I thought I would bring my camera into work and upload some pics from here! NOPE! WRONG! You have to be an administrator to intall anything on your computer. It was a hassle just to get my visor software on here and it still isn't syncing correctly (all but the date book is working). I don't know what they are going to do next!!!!! I feel like I am in kindergarten some times and have to walk every where in a straight line holding onto the person in front of me so that no one gets out of line!!!!

Okay, so that was my vent about on to my wonderful weekend!!!

Friday we went to an Astros game with my niece (the pregnant one), her husband, my nephew and this new girl he is dating, and a friend of ours from back home! We had a really good time and it was great to see them b/c I don't get to spend much time with them anymore. We all live far apart and now that Hailey and Steve are having a baby they don't get out as much as they used to!

Saturday morning Michael had a softball tournament, but I didn't go out there until noon. They ended up not winning this one - I told them they had to experience what the other teams felt like every once in a while!!! They have been on a winning streak for three seasons straight!! So, they guys decided to go out to eat, but I opted out. Michael was disappointed that I left, but later when he found out why I left he understood!! I went out to mother's house b/c I had a picnic basket out there that I wanted to use. She wanted me to come over, too, b/c she had made a wall haning for me. (When I get it up I'll take a picture). I also got to see my grannie and brother and sister...and Hailey had made a trip out there, too! So, after I picked up the basket I started running errands to put together a nice picnic for us and bought a little something for Michael, too! I met him at his house around 5:30 and by 6:30 we were on our way to Galveston. They were having a sandcastle competition (that I had mentioned previously) - so we checked out all the entries. There are some pics, but some are dark. (sidenote: ya know, I'll get my internet turned on this week - this is ridiculous not being able to post any pictures) Afterwards we toured around town. Michael hadn't been to the island in a long time and was impressed at all they have added. After finding a spot on the beach where we could watch the volcano at Rainforest Cafe we laid out the blanket and sat down to eat. Then we sat there a while watching the water and other people on the beach before deciding to go walking. We picked up a bunch of shells and chased a sand crab around!!! We really had a great time.

Sunday we thought about going back down to the island to go crabbing, but we were being lazy! After a while his brother wanted him to play a game of football out in Katy, which was fine with me b/c they could drop me off at Katy Mills Mall to shop for a while. I really didn't find much that I couldn't live without, but it was nice to have some time to myself while the boys went to play!!! That afternoon we took a two hour nap before watching the game and grabbing a quick dinner!!

Well, that's the rap - I hope you had a wonderful weekend, too!!!
