my exciting weekend... ish...

I have spent the day watching TCM... The Good Earth, Sunset Boulevard... yesterday I watched Gigi... now I'm watching The Egg and I. I love old movies. I think part of my enjoyment is that they simply told the story... there was no excessive use of nudity or profanity or violence or any other egregious efforts to hold people's attention. It was a story. Like watching a play. For people who have the intellect and creativity to enjoy a story without all that shock value.

It's been another pajama Sunday for me. I love my church. I love God. I just have a serious lack of motivation on Sunday morning to do anything.

And... well... I've got a bunch of chest congestion and it's making everything take a little more effort and instead of resting this weekend, I spent time with my boys and did a little more housecleaning than usual (after Cody made fun of my dirty fridge) and scrubbed the bathroom. I gave in today and took a decongestant but I wasn't happy about it. Not at all. I refuse to believe this is bronchitis. I refuse to GET bronchitis again. I'm sure this is just allergy/asthma stuff. It's just aggravating. This is what the pulmonologist said I'd deal with every year but I thought I could will it away.

Sarabeth did a great job at her talent show. She got third place! She was absolutely precious! Jorjanne was awesome too... great stage presence... and my friend Alisa's daughter took 3rd place in her division. I posted pictures on my facebook. Sarabeth made a cute little nun. Austin is already trying to pick out a song for Jamie to sing next year when she's old enough to be in the show...

I did some spring school shopping for Austin yesterday... got him two pairs of jeans and a new pair of shoes. We bought a nintendo ds game for Sarabeth and Jamie (it was on clearance). I got two new dresses... one for the wedding but it's too green. I didn't have a sample of the color with me so I just guessed at it. It's a pretty dress, though, I think it will be my easter dress. It was only $15 at Ross.

Cody and Marquee were in town yesterday to do their marriage counseling with Bubba so we were able to go out for dinner last night. For the second time in two nights we tried to go to a restaurant around here that was closed before it's posted closing time. That's how it works here. They roll up the sidewalks when they get ready. Glenda's was open, though, so I was able to get a southern specialty - salad bar with a piece of fried chicken. Seriously.

That's our exciting weekend. I can't believe it's almost Monday again. And almost April.

Pajama days are good every once in a while :)

Hope your congestion goes away soon!
