A weekend review

I had a very nice, peaceful, relaxing, quite, weekend.  We had pizza on Friday, HD brought it home and that's just as good as him cooking dinner for us actually it's even better, if he would have cooked I would have had a big mess to clean up.
I finished the great book I was telling you all about last week, it was one of the best books I have ever read!  Saturday the boys had a football game.  HD coaches the team that Bo plays on, they lost by one point which is even hard than by 20 by the look on his face.  I have never been as mad as I was at this game (about a game)  Bo got tackled, that's life...  As he got up this big kid much bigger than the average 5 or 6 year old comes up and tackles him again after the whistle was blown and to add insult to injury he kicked my kid!  I was totally outraged, like I am so glad I wasn't sitting with his mama because I don't think I could have invited her to church after I told her what I was thinking.  I hopped up and yelled for the coaches  HD ran to Bo because he had the wind knocked out of him, I then jump up seeing that the referee is doing nothing and he tells me I didn't see it.  I champ went back out and played but still doesn't understand why someone would want to hurt him and why he would tackle him after the whistle was blown, I tried to explain to my innocent son that in life alot of people  cheat, Bo was upset because the team cheated with an illegal play at the end making the winning touch down and I again explained that sometimes it looks like the cheater wins but he never does he is left knowing the victory isn't real, he is let at the end of the day with nothing.
Luke's team also lost their game.  They lost 36 to 6 and as I said before that's better than by 1 point at least to the kids it is.  We came home from football after a quick stop at the book store so that I could buy the last two books in the Twilight series.  When we got home Bo wanted to lay down, did you hear me Bo wanted to lay down so I did what any good mother would do I took his temperature because my children do not ask to lay down, not ever.  He had a fever 101.1, whats up with the rash of sickness going through my family?  I sent Luke and Daisy outside with HD and I settled in to read while Bo rested watching movies.  I read the whole second book New Moon which is my sister Molly's favorite, and rightfully so it was a wonderful book!  
Sunday morning Bo still sick, I stayed home with him and HD took the other kids to church, guess what I did, I read the next book Eclipse, did I mention that they are 600-700 page novels?  Oh and if you have a morel aversion to Vampires the book is also about Werewolves.  I love a good fiction book and they are not scary in the least.  The series has a wonderful romantic twist, and the author is just amazing she is never smutty in the least, never talking foul or even having sexual content because they couple are unmarried, Wow a book with morels after all!  I have read more smut in Redbook magazine than this Series by far!
So today is back to normal life no more book reading marathon, not that I don't want to curl up and read the last book in one setting I do, but education first!  School, laundry, ballet at 2, dinner, football, and all the in between.  Any way I want to make this book last since it is the last one.

Did I tell you all yet that my birthday is one week from today?  It is!  I will be .................  Drum roll please, the big 3-O!  HD and I are going away for the weekend, to this beautiful castle like hotel in the mountains it is just beautiful here see for yourself,

Beautiful isn't it!  I hope you all have a great Monday!  I love the start of a new week even if it is one week from me turning 30.

Please pray for my nephew Tate this morning he is in Detroit having eye surgery, Twice Blessed has explained the whole thing on here blog you can read the details there, but please pray for him, eye surgery is never an uncomplicated issue.

Sorry to hear that Bo is under the weather. I'm sure that it was nice to relax with him & READ! I love getting lost in a good book every now & then!

Have a great week.

So sorry to hear about Bo's game. Man, it would be hard sitting there and watching your kid get tacked and roughed up. My mom would not even let my brother play pee wee football!
That hotel looks lovely and I love the castle look:)

I can't believe some kids these days...kicking your poor son! What a bully! I hope Bo's fever is gone and he is feeling better today. This is horrible to say but maybe that bully caught what Bo has by tackling aweful thought I just had...forgive me!

I just emailed you. Please comment on my blog if you don't get my email by tomorrow.

What other books have you read that have been really good?

Dying to know what comment was deleted... Thanks for posting about little Tate. He's recovering nicely in his bed. I'm heading off to bed myself and will get him up to sleep on my chest! Talk about a reading marathon..eyes hurt yet? I can't believe what a speed reader you are!! I have all 4 books myself but haven't even picked up the first one yet! need to let me know if you want me to get you the spa package now or if you still want to wait. I feel bad that I don't get to see you on your birthday! Missing you girl.
