Weekend Recap

Well, it was a much better weekend than the last one. On Friday we rented a few movies, ordered takeout, and cuddled up for a nice cozy night in. We watched Hancock, Stepbrothers, and…. Zombie Strippers. Good times.

Saturday, we knocked out most of our Christmas shopping and hope to finish the rest this weekend. It was an odd year for me as this was the first one that my son didn’t put a single toy on his list for me to shop from. Oh well, I guess they all have to grow up sometime.

Saturday evening my brother, his wife, my nephew, the twins and another friend of ours came over. We grilled copious amounts of ribs, played cards and settled in to watch boxing for the rest of the night. Most of the fights were at least entertaining, but I was sorely disappointed by Oscar De La Hoya’s performance. He just looked like he really didn’t want to be there and it was a sad mark in an otherwise stellar boxing career.

Sunday we gathered up a few boxes of clothing, toys, books and movies and took them to Goodwill. Hopefully they will help make someone’s Christmas a little brighter.

Then we once more manned the couch to watch X-Files and Street Kings. Other than that, we just generally enjoyed each other’s company.

So, what did you get up to over the weekend?

Yours sounds like a great weekend James!

We took our grandchildren out on Saturday and on Sunday washed all the crystal out of the cabinet in readiness for Christmas. This weekend is decorating the tree and the house time.

How thoughtful of you to give to the goodwill! Last year at this time was when my SIL and nephews were homeless because of a fire. They got lots of help from the salvation army and goodwill. It's people like you that help make for a happy holiday.
