The weekend was a blast!

Happy Monday to you, or should I say Happy Fourth of July eve?  I guess it doesn’t really matter either way.  What matters is that I’m back in Clearwater and working today, and it kind of sucks.  I mean, I don’t mind work so much but going back to it after taking some time off and then knowing you’ll be taking the next day off is kind of a downer.  I should have just taken today off too, right?  You should too!

bad influenceI’m a bad influence.  You should probably not listen to me.

Over the weekend MacGyver and I spent as much time as we could with his sister and friend.  We did a little fishing, played Mexican Train Dominoes and hit up Tarpon Springs on Saturday.

I think I was the overall winner. Just sayin

There are lots of cool things to do in Tarpon Springs but Laura and I were super excited about this opportunity.

Free WineIt may have been the wine or maybe all the sugar from Hella’s Restaurant and Bakery but afterwards, we girls got a little silly.

This was our best Charlie’s Angel pose but don’t worry we perfected it later.

See? Told ya.

Laura took this picture of MacGyver and I which I absolutely love!

Me and my man

You know how they say huge purses will cause back problems? I obviously didn’t get that memo because, ouch!

I also love this picture of MacGyver and his big sis.

Love!

After Tarpon Springs we decided to show the girls what we are lucky enough to get to experience at least once if not twice a week, fireworks!  We live by the Threshers stadium and are close enough to hear and see the firework’s display during baseball season every week.

Saturday night we decided to get closer and actually take a drive over to the stadium.  What we didn’t realize was that the game would go into overtime and they would end up playing a bazillion innings!

What inning are they in again?

We almost gave up and went home to watch them but I’m so glad we didn’t because…

Phillies stadium fireworks It was a blast, literally!  And we get to see them again tonite!  We’ll probably watch them from home though because MacGyver and I have really bad luck on July 4th.  We’ve spent 3 of them in Emergency Rooms and a few others with sickness or injury, so we stay home.

Tonight is the annual Kiwanis Midnight Run.  I thought about running it, as I thoroughly enjoyed it the last time, but I decided not to.  If you live in the area I do recommend it.  It’s really incredible to run over the causeway at midnight and the race proceeds go to a great cause.

That’s it for me, I’ve got a few hours of work to get done before another day of vacation.

What are your plans for the fourth?

Friday fun

So, yesterday was a blast and I mean a blast.  I’ve had about 6 hours of sleep in the last two days but I don’t really feel it yet.  I’m not sure why.  Oh yeah, because I’m having a blast!

Where’s the beach?

In fact, I’ve had so much fun that I’ve decided to go ahead an play hookie again today.

If you need me, you can call me on my shell phone.

GONE FISHING!

See ya soon.

Adulting is overrated, let’s party!

Hello from Nokomis.  We’re thinking about heading home today, and we really should since we’ve been here since Thursday afternoon and my in laws have left to go home for the summer, there really is no reason to stay.  The thing is MacGyver isn’t feeling much like adulting this week and I’m weak willed so I’m just following along.

stupid

My new keyboard for the laptop came while we were down here.  I had it delivered to this house so that I could get it fixed and be ready to work on it this week.  It wasn’t the right keyboard.  Apparently, I have one of the rare laptop’s where the keyboard pops won’t just pop in from the top.

of course

Of course…

So I’m typing on a wireless keyboard which I have strategically placed beside me while I stare at the laptop and occasionally hit the keyboard of the keys which don’t work.  It’s so much fun.

And let’s throw one more thing into the mix to make this super interesting.  My eye twitch has turned into a painful eye throb and my eye has become itchy and swollen and on Friday I got double vision.  I am convinced it is the migraine prescription so, I threw the topiramate in the trash.  I would rather have a migraine than go blind.  I’ll be making an appointment with my eye doctor this week but it is already getting better.

It is still raining every day here although Friday was beautiful and we were able to get out on the boat for most of the day.  Here are a few scenes from that adventure.

boatingpopspopspopsAs you can tell, it was a rough day.  It got worse, we had to go back home which meant we had to see more of this….

heronand this,

the Venice InletOh, but we did see a shipwreck, sort of.

If you look real close you can see it.

I was a little let down that the Skipper and Gilligan were nowhere to be seen!

I did managed to hit up the Legacy Trail for some running every day.  I’m not sure of the cumulative miles but it was a shit ton.  And guess what?  I’m headed out for a few more before we leave because, well, it’s running and you never need a reason to go for a good run, just get out and go!

Have a stellar Monday and don’t work too hard, life’s too short.

Tell me about your weekend.

Ever seen a shipwreck?  Did you go peek?  We did.  There was nothing to see.
