weekend review

I had a blast at the Mardi Gras party I went to Saturday night. The party was at a friend's mother's house, so there were several older people there, and I figured it would be kind of boring and that I'd probably be home by 9:00pm, 10:00pm at the latest. I ended up having more fun than I've had at parties with people my own age and didn't get home until after midnight.

The boyfriend was not as lucky as I. The circus that he and his family went to was located 45 minutes from where we live. The circus itself only lasted two hours. It took them nine hours to get up there, see the circus, and get home. There was road work on the interstate (only one lane open a good portion of the way up there and back), traffic was horrible because the circus wasn't the only event in the area. They barely made it up there in time for the start of the circus and they left three hours before it started.

I also found out that even though the boyfriend told his sister both times she asked, that I would not be going to the circus with them, she and her mother wasted their money went ahead and bought me a ticket just in case I changed my mind. Evidently they don't know me very well. If I tell you I will do something, then I will do it. If I tell you I'm not going to do something, it would be a waste of your time and energy (and money in this case) to try to talk me into it. When my mind is made up, it's made up.

Yesterday was another beautiful day and me and the girls had a great time playing outside again while the boyfriend raked the leaves. The day went by so fast, before I knew it, it was dinner time. I made taco salad, which we ate while watching the race. Yes, I like NASCAR.....but I'll save that story for another post.

I went to a party with older people recently, and it was way more fun than I had expected!
