Fabulous Friday

Wow, I hope you all are having as great a friday as I'm having today! Let's see if I can recap without writing a novel here.

1) Today was week 18 weigh in for the biggest loser competition that I'm in and I lost 2.4 lbs this week!!! Woo hoo!!! I'm back in a decent lead overall, so I have 2 more weeks to keep that lead and win this contest. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

2) I took the girls for their first visit to Chuck E. Cheese today. Boy, what a trip down memory lane it was for me. I had my only birthday party as a child at this venue (when it was Showbiz Pizza Place) and although the interior was drastically different, I still felt that excitement when we walked in the door. I bought tons of tokens and then proceeded to show my girls as good a time as their little hearts could stand. They were over it after about 40 minutes. I could have stayed for hours playing skee-ball and eating greasy pizza. Ah, memories!

3) The IRS bestowed our "rebate" today, so with it burning a hole in our pocket, we rushed on a pilgrimage to the Hell Depot. Oh, I mean the Home Depot. After an hour of misery, a huge scratch on my leg, and giving them our first born, we had our car and a friend's truck full of wonderful home improvement items! We're really very excited about this new chapter of projects that will begin this evening and last the entire weekend (if not much longer). Slated for this weekend are shelving in the kids rooms (for the stuffed animal overpopulation), building the tomato garden (my mother's day gift) and beginning on the back deck (the thing I'm most excited about). I'll have pics and posts all weekend I'm sure, to document the madness, er, I mean progress.

Woohoo! You go baby! I am also planning a weekend full of progress on several fronts. I'm currently attacking my dangerously low blood alcohol level, and once that is out of the critical range I should have lots more energy to tackle household projects! LOL!

Thanks! Make sure you have a pomtini for me and good luck with the projects this weekend. Can't wait to hear an update!
