Notes on a Weekend

Filed under: Elle & Zed,Family & Friends,Interstellar Casa,It's Me, Lass — by InterstellarLass @ 9:36 am

I barely remember Friday night. Not for any good reason like having too much fun, but because I was exhausted. I seem to remember eating dinner, and then fell asleep, waiting for something. I roused myself enough to watch The Last Supper. I should have stayed asleep. Last night I watched Closer. It was better, but in a very bizarre kind of way.

On Saturday Elle got up before me. When I came out she was dressed in her basketball uniform, ready to play. Problem was her game wasn’t until Sunday. Poor thing. Sunday morning she was dressed and ready to go, but had to wait all day for her game at 4. They played much better this week, coming down to a very close 8-8 tie. Zed had a bye week, and he stayed in his pjs all day yesterday. Lucky thing.

Saturday night was my friend Amy’s birthday. Well, the anniversary of her birthday anyway. I think she’s trying to stop counting them. She looks so young anyway, I don’t think people would believe her if she tried to tell them how old she really is. The only note I have about the party is, either a) if you find out the restaurant you want to go to doesn’t take reservations and you have 20 people coming to dinner, find another restaurant, or b) show up early and get your name on the list so your friends don’t have to wait 2 hours for a table. We waited longer for the table than we sat at the table.

There’s something exciting about going to the grocery store and between the store card and coupons, saving nearly $30 on groceries. Or maybe it’s just me. Gosh, how lame am I?!?! Seriously, I came home and high-fived Nick, woo-hoo-ing my savings! I just realized I truly am a L.O.S.E.R. I must go hang my head in shame.


  1. Last Supper was good. So was Extras. Why must you act like you don’t like my films and shows? Why? 🙂

    What was the last movie we watched at home that we both liked? Yes, I’m hoping for a portable DVD player for Valentines Day.

  2. Sometimes those savings can add up. Just think, you saved enough on groceries to pay for the gas to GET the groceries. So, I join you in a hearty WOO-HOO!!! (homer simpson’s style)

  3. You’re not a loser! You’re a shopper! What’s more fun than saving money while shopping? Not much!! You go girl.

  4. Lancelot made us stop watching Closer — he was disgusted.

  5. Aw, poor thing! Why are you so tired. And I do a happy dance when I save a ton money, and yes, $30 is a ton of money to this budget girl. There are so many things I would rather do with $30 than spend it on groceries.

  6. Heck no! $30 bucks is $30 bucks!!! You can better spend that on martini concoctions for God’s sake!! I wish I could stay in my pjs all day and not feel guilty.

  7. I think bargain shopping is the female equivalent of hunting. Sounds like you bagged a trophy!

    I fell asleep watching a DVD on friday night too. At least it was just “The Ant Bully”.

  8. Do you use one of those coupon websites for extra savings? I should get back into using the coupons on a more regular basis, the savings really do add up.

    Had to smile at Elle being up and ready for basketball a day early. Keep her at that age, will ya? lol

    I spent most of Sunday in my pj’s being lazy like Zed. Tell him it’s a lost art. lol

    btw, didn’t you mentioned reading material few posts back? I read James Patterson’s 4 Blind Mice on Sunday. It was okay. It had a few too many cliche’s for my taste, which made me wonder if they sent the story to a writers mill to pen out new works under the author’s name.
    I like a more original writing style when I read a best selliing author. Aside from that, it made for an easy read to kick back and relax to on Sunday. The only thing I didn’t like were the scenes with gore and murder…army officers gone bad. Skipped right over those parts, lol

  10. While I am not opposed to saving money I could never do the coupon thing. Too much energy. Of course, coupons are almost non-existent around here nowadays.

  11. Don’t feel bad. I heard where some blogger bought a Soap Opera Digest at Kroger yesterday.
