The girls (opps and Marty) are allowing me to be the guest speaker tonight. A lot going on this past weekend....
Friday was a day off from work. I signed up for a scrapbook seminar at a new place over the weekend. Friday it started at 3pm and went until 11pm! Dinner was gourmet pizza and ceaser salad...yummy. Saturday after a quick stop at Walmart, I got there about 10am and stayed until 8pm. Lunch was yummy wraps. I especially loved the veggie pesto one I had. Along with the wraps we had homemade Italian Wedding Soup. Saturday night for dinner we were served pasta with red sauce or alfredo, salad with feta cheese, garlic toast and wine! Opps almost forgot the pastry tray. Did I say this was a scrapbooking weekend???? I told the ladies that I felt like a "husband". I will definetely sign up at this person's events again! I did actually get some scrapbooking done too! My daughter's book is now done through 5th grade! WOO HOO. I also have my Cape May Vacation book done through 1997. Really moving along, aren't I? If anyone out there has hopes of scraping...(AM???) I suggest doing it as your children grow....it is bittersweet doing it when they're all grown up!
On Sunday we had our Pug Meetup "Brunch with Santa". This was scheduled early due to photographer being there and our coordinator due to have a baby in the next 2 weeks! Lots of pics, but I'll save them for AFTER Thanksgiving. I am a co-organizer of our meetup group and got there at 9:30 am and never got home until 6:30 pm. The Small Dog Meetup group mixed in with the Pugs, and we ended up with 2 settings. It was a VERY long day. I'm happy to report that Marty had a great time at his first meet-up. He actually comes to his new name after only a week. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Also, Sunday was my sweet Chloe's 4th birthday. So hard to believe I have had her for 4 years. I had wanted a Pug for so long and I remember how I cried when I got her. Thinking of Chloe's birthday brought to mind another anniversay of 11/12. Sunday was the 6th year anniversary of my mom's death. So hard to believe she has been gone for 6 years! I no longer come home from work and think "I've got to call mom".....I still miss her so.
