Yeah-I know I forgot...

I know I didn't do a Friday Fab. Find last week. I had a busy day and honestly I didn't discover anything new last week. Oh well-maybe this week's will be twice as good.

I did have a pretty good weekend though. Saturday was the 5th grade pancake breakfast at our school. I did feel a bit guilty going and not actually working at it being that I have a 5th but knowing that I do lots of volunteering at the school for other activities- just not for a particular grade- I let this one go. I didn't eat much being that I'm fighting a sinus infection and for some reason whenever I get one I just don't feel like eating. I did however get to sit with adults and have an actual adult conversation-for more than 30 minutes! That has got to be some kind of record-judges?

Sunday was rating day with Sophia's twirling group. I'd post a picture of just how adorable she and her friends looked if I had been able to take a friggin' picture. I received a great new camera for Christmas this year and charged it Christmas morning. I haven't had to charge it since. So I decide to make sure the camera is fully charge before the show but the charger is missing. I looked everywhere but it's gone. It must have been thrown out with the Christmas garbage. So I dig out my older camera that takes ok photos but doesn't hold a charge for long. Just to be on the safe side I take out fresh batteries and ask John to change them with the ones in the camera while I finish getting Sophia ready. So we get to the show and I tell Sophia to pose with her friends so I can get a nice picture and nothing. The friggin' batteries are dead. So now I have no pictures.John swears he changed the batteries but I'm not sure I believe him.

We had decided to go a Chinese buffet for a late lunch because Sophia had been asking for "crab wigs"*(one of my mother's mess ups that keeps us in stiches. More on them later) aka crap legs for weeks .During lunch my mother(my parents were with us)points out that a new discounted book store had opened in the same plaza and we should check it out. We get there and the place is packed! I mean tons of 30's and 40's dressed nicely walking around but not really shopping. I also noticed I was getting checked out a few times. I mean I looked ok and I not hideous but I did think it was a bit odd.....until I made my way to the back of the store and saw the big sign announcing the singles party that was going on at the bookstore! Of course I ran to my mother and told her and then we were watching for who was really looking for books or a hook up.
John found for me "Entertaining with the Sopranos" which I had to have. Anyone who knows me knows my deep love for the Sopranos. I've seen every episode at least 3 times-some 5 or more times-and I've even been told that I resemble Edie Falco-who plays Carmella Soprano. Not the best compliment but at least I'm not told I look like Tony.

So Sunday night comes and I go to bed with my new book and turn on the t.v. and what is on? My other love the Godfather. All and all it was a good weekend.

*my mom is known for screwing up words and/or sayings. She doesn't do it on purpose but it doesn't make it any less funny. My all time favorite was once probably 20 years or more ago I was driving home with her and someone made a left in front of my car-missed him by 2 feet at the most. When my mom sees what's happening she screams "oh my shit"while bracing for a crash that doesn't happen. We get home and I say "oh my shit?' what is that? Apparently she was think "oh my God" and "holy shit" and that's how it came out of her mouth. These things happen to her all the time.
