Random Moments From My Weekend

----I hosted the Super Splash Tween Bash at the Library on Saturday.  It is one of the bigger events I do during the year and I although this is my eighth year doing it, I still get nervous and anxious about it.  I really want it to be fun and to have it be something that the kids look forward to each year.  This year, it went really well.  Everyone had a good time, even me :-)  Unfortunately, we were shorthanded on Saturday, so no one got in to take photos. 

----I was sooo exhausted by the time I got home Saturday evening.  I hadn't eaten all day, so I did feel better after having a nice meal and a good long conversation with DR.  Still, by the time I actually went to bed, lying down and stretching out under the covers felt amazing.

----I slept in a bit on Sunday.  Aaaahhhh. In the afternoon, Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad and I went to the park for lunch with Kick Back Dude and the kidlets.  It was a gorgeous day.  Also, it was 7-11, so they were giving out free Slurpees (7.11 oz) at the 7-Elevens.  GG and HL went back twice.

----Miss Personality and Love Bug came over to spend the night pretty late in the evening on Sunday.  During a silly moment, Miss Personality threw our Krusty the Klown doll into Girlie Girl's room, locked the door for him, and then closed it so he couldn't escape.  Uh-oh.  We don't have keys to those bedroom doors.  Fortunately (?) this had happened once before when DR was here.  He was able to catch the latch using a wire hanger.  I gave it a try and it took me awhile, but I did manage to unlatch that door.  It was bedtime then! 

So, that was a bit of my fun, sort of busy weekend.  And on we go....

is Krusty ok?

C4C: haha! Krusty thanks you for your concern and says you are a mensch :-) He is quite alright at present.

My mom has the same kind of doors, I think. There's a little thingy she uses to unlock through the doorknob.

It's good that Krusty got a "time out", though. Those clowns are trouble.

It's too late for me, but I wonder if the 7-11s near me were doing the same promotion? Hmm. A Slurpy right now sounds like a perfect Summer treat.

You know, I never in my life have had a slurpee.

It's great when sleep is so wanted and needed and you get it.

Tara: It is weird to have doors that lock, with no keys, but in general it isn't a problem.
Yeah, Krusty probably got what he deserved...some time to think about what he's done!
I think a little Slurpee goes a long way, but they can be great on a hot day...and free is always good!

NoRegrets: You should remedy this ASAP. Slurpee up, dawg.
It really did feel amazing to lie down after the day I'd had Saturday :-)

I wish we had 7-11's in Iowa. I loved Slurpees when I was a kid in Arizona.

Churlita: I thought they were everywhere! I'm not sure why I thought that..
