That sounds normal, not sure what your complaining about. HAHA- I'm kiddin' - sounds like a weekend that will end you up in the drink-a-lot bin! Must be the husband fault. HA - I feel the same way girl, but you at least got to go to Starbucks. (I'm jealous - mine would have been a no-fat latte with hazelnut tho)
I LOVE TY !! I alway cry during the show and my kids make fun of me crying. (big meanies) And, I'm getting real addicted to Grey's Anatomy too. I didn't get to watch the first season but I think I got caught up on it last week when they did that "last season flashback" thingy. TOO COOL !
My husband got me a smoothie blender with Pina Col. & Strawberry Marg. mix to make in it. We use that a lot to relax at night with a wacko day (weekend) like you had.
Wish you better days.

What?! Other people's husbands sit around watching football in their pyjamas doing nothing! Mine did the same thing yesterday as I ran around to soccer games, the grocery store and cleaned the house...he was lucky to live through yesterday! I'm praying for Superbowl to get here quick...I need things done around the house!

ya did you catch the drinking Soho's part!!!! I am a bit of a martini fan, hence the new glasses, mine keep breaking and no not from over use just a big clumsy husband!!
and I did get to do some shopping! I returned a skirt and a blouse, J bought me for Christmas, I didn't like them which is unusual he is pretty good at picking out clothing for me, and in return I bought 2 skirts,1 sweater and 2 necklaces!! for $6.41 more!! ya I love that kind of shopping!
do you have Reitman's in the States? my fav. store!!! the clothes there actually fit a woman with curves!!

ok speaking of tv too, do any of you watch "the office", it is right after "my name is Earl"... both are funny but the office is hysterical... J and I laugh through the whole thing and there are no annoying laugh tracks playing!! anywoo if you haven't watched it, check it out, it just moved to Thursdays 9:30 PT. We don't watch CSI,,, ooohhh I can almost hear the hissing at the screen!!! let me know what you think!! it has the guy from "40 year old virgin" in it. totally our type of humor anyways babbling here, but hey it's my blog so I get to do what I want to ha!!!

Just chiming in to say that I do watch The Office. Steve Carell is my favourite! That one last week where he burned his foot in the George Foreman grill still has me giggling almost a week later...don't know how they're going to top that.
Lala's world said…
Steve Carell won the Golden Globe last night for "the office"!!
I know that episode last week was LMAO funny!!!!

Hey LaLa,

Re: your last comment on my blog:

This weather is killing me! My middle daughter, bella, hasn't played a soccer game since the middle of November and I'm in a war with the soccer association to get the kids playing on the gravel fields...they seem to think the kids are made of sugar and will melt. With every passing Sunday I'm having to talk her down from a fullout erruption...she's is soccer crazy and not getting to play is killing her.

Just make it stop already!
You have a great website here, and I'm going to tell all my friends about it.
