A Frozen Weekend

It got freezing cold this weekend! It was in the 80's on Thursday, then Saturday it was freezing cold and rainy. Yuck!

Friday night, I went to my LNS's Market night. I didn't get much. I didn't see much calling me.

Saturday morning I got up early and went to a web design special interest group at a local computer club. It was informational. Maybe a little bit boring, but I came away with a lot of good information.

Saturday afternoon we dragged the kids out to the Krewe of Diversion boat parade. It was interesting. It was a charity parade so you had to pay them before they'd throw stuff to you. Being on a smallish dock trying to give money to people on boats and then trying to catch stuff and keep track of three kids was a challenge. Nobody fell in, everyone kept their life jackets on, and we got a bunch of stuff. Thankfully it was really short because of the weather. We had perfect timing. When we got there, the first boat was passing, as soon as the last boat passed it started raining again. We did have some casualties though, I got a huge splinter embedded underneath my fingernail. That hurts! Everyone kept telling me I'd have to go to the doctor and get my fingernail cut away. I didn't want to do that though. So I just put neosporin on it and bandaids and it pushed itself out far enough the next morning so I could grab it with tweezers. Also, on the way home both Lauren and Maria got carsick. It was pretty gross. I knew Lauren had a tendacy to get carsick, but that was the first time Maria did it. I don't blame them. I was carsick on the way home too, but I manage to keep it all down.

Sunday not much was going on. It was still so cold and wet. James and Eva went to church and came back with Jambalaya lunches, so I was really happy. I love church lunches. The church sent out a bulletin saying that the nursery had been shut down because they had no more volunteers. So, I signed up to be a nursery volunteer, when they reopen it. This is a massive church, it surprised me out of all those peopole they didn't have enough people to run the nursery. So anyway, who knows what I've gotten myself into.

I watched a few movies over the weekend. Two for the Money, it was ok not especially fantastic. Foxfire, again, ok. If you're an Angelina Jolie fan, she was pretty young in that movie. And I watched Hustle and Flow. I have to say it was a pretty good movie. Better than I was expecting and the ending was a little different than I was expected too.

Not much stitching over the weekend. I was working on Laura's Stitcher's Lane RR, which is almost done. It's looking fantastic. Speaking of which, my original SLRR, which had gone missing in the mail for like 6 months has resurfaced! Yay!!

I've volunteered in the nursery at our church cause if you ever use the nursery they basically hunt you down and make you volunteer for a week every few months. Only fair I guess. It was kind of stressful, but they also have teenage helpers to help out and I made DS stay and help me too. :)
