Monday after cleanup!

What a beautiful weekend!  Sunny and basically warm.  Saturday was mid 60s.  I spent it cleaning out my den a/k/a Toys R Us while Miss T was at Nutcracker practice...I bailed out.  I was able to move out quite a bit of goodies...a bucketfull went to the thrift store and some of the bigger little girl items went to my SIL for her niece.  I called my stepDad to come over and haul it away before T n T came home. 

Tom, bless his heart (!) took Miss T to practice for me and stayed all day!  He gave up just sitting there after lunch and went window shopping for himself, just browsing Best Buy, Kohl's, Boater's World...guy stuff.  They brought home Pizza for dinner....not what I wanted but Hey, I didin't have to cook.

Then I realized that I needed more TULE for a crinolin I'm working on for this production.  So I showered and headed out to the local Walmart where it is quite inexpensive to purchase such an item.  I picked up a lap harp for Miss T to use as her "instrument" in the production.  I also went to Old Time Pottery.....a great place for inexpensive (cheap) household stuff from decorations to linen to dishes, glasses, cookware and picture frames.  I ended up with some lovely crystal tulip votives for T's teachers for gifts...$2 each.

Sunday was just as warm.  I prepared breakfast of bacon and french toast (grits for Tara).  I once again donned my Rainbow's and T-shirt and headed out to practice.  YAY for warm weather and flip flops!  I can handle mid-60s, even lower 60s.  We dropped Mr Man off at the sports bar so he couls watch the NY GIANTS game.  After practice Miss T & I had an early dinner at Moe's Southwestern Grill (Quesadilla's for us) and watched an incredible full moon and sunset.  Remembering that I had my camera, I picked a couple of nice spots and snapped away.  Whenever I get them uploaded I'll share.  The sky was gorgeous.

(I also found a beautiful new RED OPI nail polish - looks very festive.  "What I Really Wanted" I think is the name.)

Picked up Mr Man from the bar (happy as usual) and headed home to work on my sewing project.  This week, I didmanage to put in a zipper in a skirt I was making for Nutcracker and install a casing for a drawstring waist -- works best for mulitple sizes, er, uses!  2 more weekends of practice! 

I've been very versitle in the production this year.  Since I'm not the "lady of the house" I opted just to be a "guest".... allows me more freedom.  Only Sunday I was used and abused...the current "lady" was absent, so I was the stand in.  Geeesh.....where's the committment???  There role is very important and they still do not have it together yet, but they miss a lot of practices.  What gives?

Hey I actually wrapped CHRISTMAS gifts this weekend!!!  So proud of me!  Then I looked and said "that's it!?"  Geesh, I gotta get on the ball.  Miss T's birthday is in 2 weeks and until then I can't even BEGIN to shop for her, much less tell Santa what she would like!

Welcome to Dramaville..........

Nuts on the nutcracker situation!  Ha. I'm so funny.
I love Old Time Pottery and Moe's!  Great stuff in both places.  Now I'm hungry!
Good for you for getting and wrapping Christmas presents.  It is just around the corner, darn it.
