It’s been an intereting weekend. I can’t say it was extremely busy. It was relaxing and we did have a few things to get done.
Saturday started with us all sleeping in. I woke up about 10am and hubby woke up shortly after. Kiddo woke up after 10:30 when my parents called. We haven’t slept that late in ages and it felt great!! We took it pretty easy all day and just did some chores around the house. We didn’t get to any of the big tasks, but that’ll come. We did watch “Marley and Me” today. Excellent movie!! If you love dogs at all, it’s a tear jerker at the end. We also watched the All Star Race. It was awesome!! Kyle Busch was his typical jerk self. One day, he’s going to hurt somebody, then NASCAR will have to control “wild thing”. As it is, he does what he wants on the track and I doubt his car is ever inspected. But, I won’t let that jerk ruin a good race. I have to say we were all pretty happy in this house with the results!!
We did hit Wal-Mart to buy our new “pet” a home. I guess I haven’t really blogged about our newest addition. The Man rescued a turtle from the middle of the main road close to our house. He came home and said he just couldn’t let the poor thing get hurt. Kiddo and I spent Friday trying to find out what kind it was and how hard it’d be to take care of it. He’s some sort of box turtle. Between asking a store and searching the internet, we decided on ornate, Louisiana, or Florida box turtle. They all resemble the one hubby rescued. I had to check on the laws here and it’s not illegal to have it, as long as it’s not hunted (or something like that). Which, it definitely wasn’t. We also found out that it loves the yellow lines on roads. For now he’s ours and in 2 weeks we’re going to have to decide if we can care of him and not hurt his life by keeping him, or send him home with my parents when we see them. He’s also native to their area and could make a home there and possibly find a mate. They have the woods and the pond and all those acres to roam on. I know deciding on that type of life or life in our aquarium isn’t much of a choice, but we really have gotten quite attached to him. I make him a salad everyday to eat. His favorite is strawberries, but he also likes spinach, apples, pears, turtle pellets, and carrots. Tomorrow we’re going to try some hard boiled egg (with shell for calcium). Oh and he’s an eater too!! Here’s a picture of our newest family member addition….
Today was a fun bowling birthday party and then run a couple errands. Miss K had a great time bowling again and she did pretty good. She got to see her bff, so that made it all the better. After that, it was home to fix the garage door. The spring on the opposite that my dad fixed quite awhile ago finally broke. I heard a loud thud-type noise the other night, but we couldn’t find where it came from. When we went to raise the garage door today, we found what it was!! Anyway, The Man fixed it right up. Hopefully it’ll last as well as the repair on the other side. We really don’t want the expense of a garage door anytime soon. UGH We still have a tree to cut down!!
Alright, I’m out!! So what did you do this weekend??
