Weekend in Review

Saturday morning, Burge ran in his first 5K race. Right here would be a good place to insert some pictures of this monumental occasion, but that would mean that I actually had pictures. And to take pictures, I would have actually had to have been there. But, alas, I was not there. Because I am just that good of a wife. Instead, I was snoozing the morning away in my bed, trying to sleep off the effects of having to get up at 5:30 every morning last week.

Anyway I woke up to this.

Yep, my “9” key bit the dust. I never realized how much I use that #9, or more importantly, the “(“. That left parenthesis is key (no pun intended)... without it, the right parenthesis is just left hanging. And in case you haven’t noticed, I like my parentheses. A lot. They are second only to my beloved comma.

I’m thinking the good ol’ Dell Inspiron is approaching the twilight of his life. He is, after all, over 5 years old. That is practically ancient in computer years. He’s slowed down a lot lately, not all his ports work anymore, and his frame is cracked. I thought a new battery and power cord might revive him a few months ago, but I think it’s just prolonging the inevitable. He’s headed for the laptop graveyard. It brings a tear to my eye because we’ve been through so much together. I’m going to hate to see him go.

Moving on to happier topics… I decided after securing the “Wife of the Year” award Saturday morning by sleeping through Burge’s race, I would keep that ball rolling by not accomplishing anything all day Saturday. I almost achieved that goal too, but this was calling my name…

The call was just too strong, so I got dressed and made a Sonic happy hour run. Seriously, who can turn down a Route 44 Vanilla Diet Coke for $1? Not I!

We finished off Saturday night with some grilled steaks (by Burge, I was pretty much worthless all day), twice-baked potatoes and a movie. We watched Extraordinary Measures, which was a heart-wrencher, but very good.

All in all, it was an awesome, relaxing Saturday, which will hopefully be good preparation for the packed-to-the-gills week we have ahead of us. Guess what starts this week… SOCCER!

  1. I can't figure out why the "n" key on my keyboard is entirely rubbed off, but the rest are still fine. I don't THINK I use n that much more than any other letter...

    it's a mystery.
