recap. because I didn't post all weekend.

tap tap tap...is this thing on?

Here I am, posting the post I intended for Saturday, before the day ran away with me and my computer threw a fit.

(Love & Logic doesn't work on my laptop. I tried.)

Somehow Zack managed to soldier on, healthy and spunky as ever. I *helped* Lexi bake Junior Mint Brownies for the girl scout bake-off and she finally left the couch.

(What's that? Did Greg catch the flu? I think if you listen closely, you'll hear *fraud* & *cheater*. I just figured that my thrice-hourly scoured hands should be the ones handling food. Because I love children.)

Zack spent the remainder of his 11 month-old birthday gift card on a spider-man learning laptop he's being eyeing since summer. He hunched over in the corner, dodging bad guys, caressing the keyboard. Like me.

The kids and I delivered girl scout cookies yesterday, and visited with some friends until dinner, when I ran away with Stephanie and Jen, to see The Other Boleyn Girl.

(We were sadly unimpressed.)

And we made plans for an unnamed women's retreat, throwing around words like 'rustic' and 'trails' and 'flask'. It is clearly bad mom territory, so be looking for that post.

And now, I have to skedaddle. Much to do, much to do. Welcome March.

A-ha...now I know what you did all weekend! Sounds like fun! Did Greg really get the flu too? And if so, is he still working?

Kimberly said...

Ah the fun..the fun...welcome March indeed!

My woman and trails? Flask I can believe, but not trails. And by 'rustic' you mean a 4 star hotel with a spa right?

The Other Snoozefest was made better by the presence of my great friends, thank you for whisking me away :)

I will get right on that retreat post...I am so excited. By which I mean "feeling martyrdom coming on."

Hi Lisa!! *waves like crazy*

Oh no! I had such high hopes for the Other Boleyn Girl. Oh well. I had read that they didn't stick to the book and that is was more about Anne than Mary. Hope the costumes were beautiful at least.

Glad to hear that the plague may be leaving you soon!

Yeah March!

My daughter saw The OBG Saturday night. She described exactly as you did.

Minnesota Matron said...

Oh my. The Matron hates nature so she is curious to see what one does on a trail. She avoids the outdoors unless there is a cafe and wine bar involved.

And I knew that movie would be tepid. Even the trailers are meek. Oh well. Thanks for confirming that this is one for the DVD.
