Weekend Birthday

We had a nice weekend, although, as always, it was too short.

I had to work late on Friday in order to get more hours in for the week, but when I got home, and after Dave got home from interviewing someone for his business, we went to our ward's game night. We brought our cranium turbo game, but no one ended up playing it. We played pit (the old orange version w/ a good bell) with Joslyn & Devin, Bryan & Jeanette, and Dan & Jessie. Then we played a really fun game called team rock paper scissors that Joslyn showed us. Joslyn is always just full of fun things to do, I love her guts. How to play: put 4 lines parallel to each other on the ground with tape, or something. Split into two teams. Each team stands on on their inner line after they've decided which sign they're going to do (rock, paper, or scissors). Then you play rock paper scissors, and if your team wins you have to run behind your other line before the other team tags you.

Then on Saturday I finished reading Eldest and then we started our spring cleaning, even though it isn't spring yet. All the warmer weather and rain makes it feel like it is though. Too bad it's snowing today. Dave tackled cleaning behind the stove (ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!) and he also figured out why one of the burners didn't work: The cord to where the coil plugs in had burned off. While he took a nap and was working on the nastiness behind the stove, I did some loads of laundry and cleaned the bathroom. I even washed the shower curtain, which was starting to turn yucky, with the floor mat. Note to all: don't wash shower curtains in hot water, they shrink. Then Chelsea called and wanted to know if we wanted to spend a night on the town with them (See her blog for details). We ended up sneaking a whole bunch of food into the theater in my bag. It wasn't at ALL obvious that I made a sloshing noise with every step I took. All in all, we got a lot done, but completely forgot that we were planning on going to the temple. Whoops!

Sunday was Dave's birthday!!! I was going to get him a new controller for our N64, but the stores were all closed by the time we got home Saturday night, so I made him a delicious breakfast burrito for breakfast. It actually filled him!...for a little while. Then we had Ward conference and I went Visiting Teaching after that. One of the girls I visit teach lives in the house across the street, so it was fun to get to know more of our neighbors. All in all, it was a good weekend, but oh i wish it were next weekend already! Yay for 3 day weekends! 2 holidays in 1 weekend! Dave wants to use his free tucanos meal next Saturday, but now that I look at it, Saturday might be THE worst day to go out to dinner...

End of the random ranting: I have decided to write down all my random thoughts on post-it notes and in a week compose a blog post of them. Should prove to be either hilarious or completely incomprehensible.

I know what you mean about making something that actually fills your husband. Clint is like a human food pit. Sometimes I'm still amazed at the amount of food he eats - like 5 cheeseburgers at McDonalds when we were in the airport last month. I'll be doing some behind the scene Tucanos work this month also. There's a guy in our stake who owns like 2% of Tucanos and he and his wife are flying out to Boise for the new store opening there. I'm watching their kids for a couple nights. Should be interesting...
