Warning: this one's a little boring. :)

I had a wonderful weekend. Relaxing.

I slept so much yesterday it was ridiculous. I felt like i'd overdosed on some sort of sleepy med (but i hadn't!)! I was either sleeping or feeling sleepy. HA! I usually wake up between 7:30 & 8:30 on Saturdays. Brad had to take my car to his parents at 8 am. The guy that looks at our cars was going to his parents to look at theirs for something & Brad was bringing mine because when we got my oil changed last weekend the guy said he thought something was wrong with the transmission (sorry for the lack of detail - i kind of tune out around car talk). Brad wanted our car guy to check it out. (Turns out nothing is wrong. THANK YOU, LORD!) 

So anyway, i never heard Brad get up, get dressed or leave. I woke up about 9 because the phone rang. It was Brad calling to see if i wanted some coffee & pancakes at his parents. I was SO tired. It took me awhile to decide. I ended up getting dressed & going over there (DELICIOUS coffee & pancakes, by the way!) We came home & relaxed some more. I took a long afternoon nap. I woke up but still felt drugged. HAHA. Insanity. It was my first full week stage managing a new show (after a long break) so i guess that's the reason! 

We ended up spur-of-the-moment calling Brad's parents over to have dinner & watch one of our movies we got in on Netflix. (My idea to have his parents over - breakfast with them was not enough - it's kind of strange but i'm always telling brad to call his parents & see if they can come over. I love them!) Anyway... they came over & we watched FAME (the newer version). Funny seeing Debbie Allen since i just worked her show the night before & saw her in person! Love FAME. Had seen it before. Any move with dancing/acting/singing is right up my alley! 

Today we went back to our old church, HeartsEase. I really want to write a blog on this whole topic (church) because i have so many thoughts i need to blog about it. Why we left in the first place (though we didn't really "leave") & why we went to Victory in the meantime. And why we kind of wish the two churches could just merge so we could go to both! :) But I can't blog about it... i don't know that i could be completely free with what i want to say so i am hesitant. But i will say that ever since we went to a shower there a few weeks ago, we have missed those people TERRIBLY. This morning we went back to visit & i have never felt so welcomed or wanted in my life. ESPECIALLY in a church (sad but true). Except for the first time i started going there (in 2006). Brad felt the same way. So that was crazy in a good way. My heart feels full. I love those people.

We went to Barnes & Noble after church. Brad bought himself a book on orchestration & he got me a novel i picked out. I wanted the new Emily Giffin novel, but should have known it'd be in hardback (i hate reading hardback). I got a book called "Never Let You Go" by Erin Healy. It just looks good. Gripping. We'll see. :) 

We came home & i made lunch & then took a nap (seriously - sleeping like crazy this weekend!). Then i got up & we watched our other Netflix'd movie: Horton Hears a Who. When i used to nanny, the little girl (who is now 13...GASP!) had a thick book of 5 or 6 Dr. Seuss stories. My favorite one to read to her was Horton Hears a Who. So that's why we netflix'd it. It was cute. :) 

SO that's really it. Tomorrow is work & rehearsal & i am joinging the Y in between! Woohoo! I am SO excited! Next weekend is a crawfish boil at my sister's ... can't wait!
