Random nothings.

Just wanted to say we're alive and well here. I've just fallen into the same funk that so many in Bloggyland seem to have lately. I'm not likely to get a real post up tomorrow either as Ben has his 3 year-old check-up tomorrow which means taking Daddy to work so we can have the van and then picking him up again in the evening.

We have had a fun weekend, though. Saturday we ran errands as a family and stopped a Target to return some things. The plan was to leave Target, eat an early (it was before 5 PM) supper at On the Border (only my favorite restaurant that Joel is sick of), then pick up a few things at Price Rite and head home.

As we were pulling out of Target Joel says, "Isn't that Amy in front of us?" Sure enough! Imagine our surprise to see our friends 2 cars ahead of us. Especially since they've been out of town and don't live in our neck of the woods. I grabbed my cell phone and called her. The long story short is that she and the kids joined us at OTB for supper! Such unexpected fun!

The boys could hardly contain themselves through the next 3 stop lights on our way to the restaurant. Will kept yelling at the cars ahead of us to move so he could get to his friend Micah. The kids were so cute when they greeted each other (because of trips they hadn't seen each other in about 3 weeks). Lots of yelling and jumping and hugging. Don't you love watching little kids with their best friends?! = )

I think we totally confused the waitress. They put us at a large round table (3 adults + 2 big boys + 2 booster seats + 1 highchair = big fun!). Some how we managed to seat ourselves so that the 2 girls were between Amy & I and the 3 boys were between Joel & I. Which put Amy & Joel sitting beside each other. The waitress kept looking to me for directions for my guys even after Joel told her what we needed. It was pretty funny. Also, we ran into a girl from MOPs and Joel said she looked a little confused by Joel sitting by Amy and not me. I don't know why I'm telling y'all this other than is amused me at the time.

And since this is a post about nothing but random things I'll describe my afternoon to you.
1:30-ish: All 3 kids down for naps.
1:32-ish: I laid on the couch under a blanket following a brief stop in the bathroom.
.... Snoring .... Snoring ... More snoring ....
5:00-ish: Dragged myself off the couch and into the bathroom after Joel sent the children to the living room and turned on a light. The light and the children wouldn't have disturbed my sleeping but my bladder was about to explode so I thought it best to get up. I honestly thought it was about 3:30. And if you think I'm going to have trouble getting to sleep tonight you are sorely mistaken!!

I'll end this rambling post about nothing now. I've got to get ready for bed. = )

Hi Stephanie...

Glad you had such a fabulous nap! And a fun weekend. Don't you just love spontaneous get-togethers with friends?

I think of you everytime I drive past On the Border. It's not my favorite though...only because we have SO many independent mexican places that are SO good. BUT, when we lived in Arkadelphia, we'd drive to Hot Springs just to eat there!

I hope you have a good week!

Okay, question for you. If you call your evening meal "supper", are you still Southern enough to call your noon meal "dinner"? That always, always confuses me! I'm a lunch and dinner kind of girl!

Billie said... there a reason you are peeing so much?

Alicia said...

Totally thought the same thing Billie inferred-that you were leading up to a pregnancy announcement! Give us the dirt.

I know what you mean about the bloggityville funk. These days when I check my reader there is rarely a post from someone I know.

Let's see... I've had 3 kids by c-section which has totally ruined my bladder control... I drank a large glass of water with lunch right before my nap... I napped for 3.5 hours! All that adds up to "gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now." = ) Y'all are cracking me up!

You really think I'd make that kind of an announcement in a post about random nothing? ;)

Dinner was so FUN and such a huge blessing for me! I, too, have thought many times about how we ended up sitting and the confusion! Too funny...I'd say we'll plan better next time but realistically, seating with our families is always a little confusing! Thanks again! Glad you got a nap! I'm sure you needed for your day yesterday!
