And just like that we're back at Monday. Except for today isn't all that bad for me since I am not going into work with my mom and I have nothing to do but laze around with Colby Jack. My weekend started out pretty eventful on Friday so let me tell you what happened.
Friday I met up with my friend Colleen at Lake Calhoun to hang out on the beach. IT was pretty windy and therefore too cold for swimming but it was fun to just lay out and chat. While we were talking we heard this loud crash and everyone on the beach stood up to see what happened. There was a car accident on the street! Colleen is a nurse so I of course told her it is her duty to go and check on those people (plus I'll admit I'm a little nosy). So we walked over to the scene and three different cars were involved. We checked on the first two people that we saw. There were fine other than a sore shoulder and majorly banged up cars. We then walked over the to third vehicle to see how they were. We spotted someone sitting on the grass with four dogs, she was the driver of the third car. We asked her how she was (she was fine physically) and then offered to stay with the dogs while she talked with the police and called her insurance company.
We ended up being there with the dogs for at least a half hour trying to calm them down. Two of them were pretty anxious. After a while her sister came and helped her out and then eventually they had figured out what they needed to and took the dogs back. I felt so bad for them but thankfully every person and dog was okay and uninjured. I was pretty excited that we there and able to help them out.
After that we went back to the beach for a while and talked some more. We finally left around 6 and I headed to my grandma's to weed her garden. She started a garden this spring but has been neglecting it and the weeds were taking over. I got about half way done but it was a lot of progress. I still need to go back over there this week to finish. And now I know that gardening is not for me. Relaxing and fun are not words that I would use to describe it ;) Plus it doesn't help that I didn't plant the stuff and therefore don't know where things we put so I have no idea what is a weed and what isn't.
BEFORE^^^^ after about 15 minutes of pulling
Saturday I sat around the house and didn't do too much or most of the day. It was Ashley's birthday so around eleven at night we went over to her place to celebrate. She had dinner alone with Christian and then we went over for some drinks. We walked to the bar by their place to do some pull tabs but they were already closed so we decided to go to the casino instead. Us girls did some pull tabs there while the guys played some black jack. Both of the guys walked out with winnings while neither of us did. But it was fun.
Sunday we slept in from our late night and then went to my cousins grad party in the afternoon. I hadn't seen that side of my family in a long time so that was nice. Before we went there we stopped at Ashley's job to surprise her and drop off her birthday present because I didn't give it to her the night before. That was fun.
And then we ended the weekend taking care of Colby Jack. He found a small plastic cube that he tore up and ate part of earlier in the night and a few hours later got sick from it :( I felt so bad for him. But he is feeling a lot better now thank goodness. And that sums it all up. How was your weekend?
