In all of the talk about what a freak Johnny boy is, I never mentioned what a great weekend we had. Friday night Johnny and I went to the Renegades hockey game. It was a lot of fun but so very disappointing in the number of folks in attendance. People always fuss that they wish Richmond had a professional team but yet they won't support their minor league teams......not the hockey team, not the baseball team. Don't ya know......nobody is EVER going to look at us if we can't even support the minor leagues!!
Saturday I took my mom Christmas shopping. Her health hasn't been that great but she was finally up to shopping and I was really glad. We had a good time but I could tell she was getting worn out.......and she still wanted to go to Costco! So I suggested that we go back to my house, put our feet up, have some coffee and wait for the freak, I mean Johnny boy to get home and he would love to take us to Costco!
So Johnny gets home and we had planned on keeping Maddox Sat night so the 4 of us head to Costco......and did a.lot.of.shopping!! Maddox just loves Costco and Johnny loves showing him just about everything there....they have fun! We did not get home until almost 8:30 and poor little Maddox had not even had supper. (I was feeding him peanut butter crackers)
Sunday I made homemade beef vegetable soup (pot of vegetarian for Jacquelyn), wrapped gifts and watched football all day........my kind of day!!
and I did NOT reach my goal of finishing up shopping by Dec 1st. If I had been out alone on Saturday, I would have finished BUT......I did something better........I took my mom shopping! So I'm taking a 1/2 vacation day this Friday and will finish up. And then that's it......the upcoming weekends are full of fun!!
here's a couple of pics of Christmasy stuff around our house........
