Project 52, hmmm

I was reading one of my many blogs and found one that suggested having 52 date nights a year.  Spending one hour, one night a week with my husband doing something fun, nothing costly, just spending time together.  The rules are that you set aside the same time every week (obviously with life this is not a hard, fast rule but a guideline), stay home, spend less than $30, each partner is responsible for coming up with the idea of what to do two nights a month, no repeats in the same month.  Anyway, sounds like something worthwhile.  I'll have to ponder this.

I have been a real slacker of late.  I haven't been doing much of anything.  No laundry.  No cleaning.  No cooking.  No sewing.  No reading.  Just work (and that's because I have to).  No exercise.  I have been playing stupid computer games - bejeweled, mafia wars, farmville, and poker.  Just wasting time.

However, this is all about to change.  going to NY next week, then Minnesota, then Michigan (and then Indianapolis on the way home).  Just have to keep the energy up after the trip and not be bummed because it's over and won't happen again for so long ... you get the picture.

There is so much to do before the trip.

Here's what I need to buy:
backup hard drive for the computer (it's completely full of pictures)
new ballet-style shoes
new off-white dress shoes
new jeans (or repair the ones with the rip)
new shirt to wear for the "firm" dinner

Guess that's about it.  the back up drive is the most important.  I'll probably order that tomorrow and then figure out how to use it on Monday and clean up my computer so it'll be clear on Wednesday when we leave -- or I could go to Fry's and get one there ... no, Amazon is the way to go.

No new pics tonight, but here's a video ...


Here is Mikey running the bases at the San Jose Giants game we went to (he's the little one in red).  The camera work leaves much to be desired -- sorry about that.

Wordless Wednesday

HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY, MIKEY!

In honor of your birthday, (and to copy off Katie yet again) this one's for you!  Happy Birthday!

Post-McCartney!

The concert was fantastic--even Paul had a great time.  As promised here are some pictures.

Waiting for the train...









At the stadium -- waiting for the show to begin.




The camera men at work.




The tickets!


It finally begins!

McCartney Tonight!

The hubby and I are going to "the city" tonight to see Sir Paul McCartney in concert! This will be my third McCartney concert.  I went to one in 1976 in Washington DC (with Brian Beard and Leisa Charlton), one in 2006 (in NY with my sister Rachel), and then tonight.

I'll write more when I get back - even with at least one picture!

Happy 4th of July!!

We are having a very relaxing day! Went to see Eclipse this morning with M&B.  We went to the matinee so it was "only" $6 each and then we had coupons for $1 for any size popcorn and drinks -- so it was a great deal! I don't know that I'll ever pay full price for a movie again.

I cleaned the bathtub, the carpet (where the dishwasher flooded our living room), and the other toilet.

and now I'm thinking of working on my quilt -- those last two blocks are really holding me up...

We may go to fireworks tonight - if Michael and Brieanna want to.  I'm too lazy to go otherwise.

that's it and happy 4th!
