Where did last weekend go? Seriously? I'd really like to know. *sigh*
Here is a recap of last weekend. Which will reaffirm in your minds how totally boring I am.
Weekend to-done list
1. grocery shop. After all these years I should know never to take JR. I end up spending a considerable amount more money. Mostly, on Fritos corn chips and alcohol. That man can eat his weight in Fritos. AND, he never gains a pound. Hating his ability to gorge on junk food and not gain weight is perfectly acceptable. I've come to grips with it.
2. bought herb starts. We went to Home Depot to get some annual flowers for the back patio because that is where we spend the most time, where the view from our living room/dining room is and how I enter the house everyday. Having a pretty aspect is important to my soul. We did buy a few flowers but what we mostly bought were herb plants. The herbs were on sale for 50% off. A steal! Since, I have a policy that if the choice is between pretty flowers and food I always go for the food. I won't list the plants that we bought (I'll save that until I take some pictures) but let's just say I did my part for the economy. I can't wait until they are big enough to eat fresh. I'll keep you posted.
3. did our taxes. This was the crappy part of my weekend. The government doesn't think that the $13,000 in income taxes we paid throughout the year was enough. They want a couple of grand more. If I could be assured that they were spending it on things that I wanted it spent on I'd be happy to fork over $15K unfortunately, they do not believe that I should have much of a say. I'd like to rearrange some of these numbers but maybe that is my crazy liberal tree-hugging granola-head thinking.
4. paid bills. After the government took their not-so-fair-share I paid the rest on our bills. Between these two chores is a couple of hours I'll never get back,
This coming weekend will be less chore related and more fun. We plan to take Nessa to the beach and I'll be finishing some paintings.
What are your weekend plans?
