Weekend Update

Sunday, July 06, 2003
We left Thursday night for Broaddus...we drove late so there really wasn't that much traffic. Not like I thought there would be anyway! I talked the entire way b/c I hate falling asleep on Michael while he is driving...so we had a lot of good conversation to make the drive go faster! We arrived at my Grannie's around 12:30 and went straight to bed, but we were still up at 6:30 to head out to my sister's to go fishing. (I have pictures, but they aren't posted yet) We fished most of the morning and then fixed breakfast pizzas for everyone. At one time or another all my siblings were there with their families...so we had a house full all weekend!!! We spent all Friday there. The fireworks were scheduled for 8 o'clock that night at the high school, but we were told it was cancelled b/c of the rain - so the guys decided to shoot off their own show for us over the pond! It was a good show, but over the tree tops we saw fireworks coming from town. Turns out the show at the high school wasn't cancelled after all!!! We still had a good show, though!!! So Friday was spent fishing, shooting clays, riding in the mud, cooking, eating, and watching fireworks. Saturday was pretty much the same minus the fireworks!! Sunday we slept in - until around 10:00 and then went to church and had lunch at my Grannie's house. After lunch we hung around for a little while to visit with my Grannie before heading back to Houston. We had a b'day party to attend when we first drove back into town, for Kenny and EJ and then decided to go see a movie with Kenny, Elaine, and Mandy! We ended up on the first row b/c we got there right at the start time...it was still a good show, though. Lots of laughs, lots of action, lots of special effects!!! It was worth a trip to the theater!!!

So, what's on the agenda for this week? Well, work is still pretty busy...I had a dentist appointment this morning so I didn't get in until after nine. (They forgot about it and I had a phone call wondering where I was!!! Ha Ha!) Tonight we aren't really planning anything - although we might go look at furniture. Tuesday is softball. I think we might go see an Astros game Wednesday night. Thursday night we'll watch basketball - Michael's brother is in the playoffs and his other brother made the All-Star team!! Congrats to both! Friday I think we're both going to take a half day and go to Astroworld (I have been wanting to go all summer and the one day we did go it was closed b/c of bad weather...so I'm really looking forward to this!) Then the next two weekends are softball tournaments (Saturdays) before heading back to Broaddus for the first of two baby showers for my niece the following weekend. When things get so busy I end up having things on my calendar months in advance...have I mentioned that I am exhausted yet!!!

So, I hope you had a great 4th of July and a safe one!!! Let me know how you spent it!!
