Valentines Weekend



We had a good Valentines weekend. I didn't take my meds, so I was able to enjoy the weekend. Isn't that something? The stuff they give me to function makes me so miserable I can't stand up most days, but it's for my own good? How does that work?

Anyway, we went to see Friday the 13th and Taken on Saturday and met the kids for dinner at Hoss's. Yes, my kids were on a double date! How did that happen? Stop laughing Kim! They all went to see Friday the 13th when we were at Taken.

Yesterday, we went to State College for a minor league baseball winter welcome back festival and met some of the players and coaches. Arielle's boyfriend went with us. Got lots of autographs in my scrapbook and on posters and schedules. Took a ton of photos. I interviewed the new head coach of the State College Spikes. Gotta love a press ID. I'm a freelance writer/photographer for those who don't know and people who work with media always mark me as a reporter. Guess it's the huge camera around my neck and the way I look? I don't know. :) Anyway, the All Star game is being held in State College in August and the general manager has me on the list for press credentials for that! Woo Hoo!!!

We stopped at Hot Topic, of course. I had seen a Twilight bag last weekend when I was there and was so good and didn't buy it. Mentioned it to Randy and it was my Valentines' present. (I'm a purse addict for those who don't know) I just love it! Got another fairy shirt, too. We went to my favorite restaurant for dinner Outback Steakhouse and I ate way too much. I always share a meal with Randy. We had prime rib this time. Oh, it was soo good! We went to a few stores and stopped by to see my new little cousin Layken on our way home. What a great end to the weekend! She is such a little sweetie! Can't wait to start spoiling her. That's my job in the family. All the cousins' kids call me when their parents won't let them get something. They know I'll find it and they'll end up with it for a birthday or Christmas. That's the only positive about being so ill, nobody has the heart to yell at me for spoiling them. Of course, I use that.

You had a wonderful VD by the look of it! You said that you are ill: I hope it's nothing serious?

i carry a camera with me most times, but nobody mistakes me for a reporter, just a slight looney at the best of times, which means that in this town, i'm free to photograph what i want (there goes that looney again...)

Sounds like you had a great weekend! Was the movie 'Taken' good? I heard that it had rave reviews. Sorry to hear that the meds make you unfunctional. What an ordeal you are dealing with.
Happy (belated) Valentine's Day to you~

I am glad you enjoyed the weekend.

Heck, that sounds as if we all expect you to have a horrid week. I do hope not.

Sounds like you're feeling better! I'm glad to hear it. I'm glad you had a great Valentines! Email with your direct email (I don't seem to have it anymore) I have a suggestion for you regarding those meds.
