Busy, but mostly lazy, weekend

It was a fairly good weekend.  Saturday was a busy day. I woke up early to take my car in for it's very first oil change and tire rotation.  I have to say, it didn't take them that long.  I was in and out in less than an hour!

I then briefly made an appearance at my apartment to walk the dog and then off to campus to pick up Stacy and Marly Grace.  We thought it would be a good idea for them to park their car early on campus for the big game that night, Florida and LSU.  We were right.  At 10:30 am, people were beginning to park on the outskirts of campus.  There were people every where. I can honestly say, I cannot remember a time when there were so many people on campus.  They were estimating 150,000 to be on campus.

It was Stacy's birthday so we went to Parrain's for lunch.  We had a great time.  And for dessert, we had purple and gold cheesecake!!! 

We then did a quick shopping trip to Walmart and then back to campus to drop them off for the game.  I then proceeded home where I spent the rest of the afternoon snuggled on the couch with my dog.  I've just been so tired lately from work and late nights with the dog (he's been sick) that I actually napped.  Then I watched the game. 

I don't know why I am upset that we lost to Florida.  It was pretty much a given.  But I had hope.  I was holding on to the hope that the team that I know they can be would show up.  Instead, they just disappointed me.  Now I could strongly argue, though, that the referrees were on Florida's payroll.  I mean, really?  How many times in a row can you call offsides?

Sunday has been a semi lazy day.  I have done laundry, some ironing, and that's about it.  I've started a new cross stitch project.  I am now working on a quilt for Christmas for Cassady.  I hope to finish it by then.  Once I've gotten some progress made on it, I will post a progress picture.

I did have dinner with my parents.  My mom's birthday is next weekend but she won't be here so we had a dinner tonight.  Dad made a yummy Mexican Stew.  It was awesome.  It's like a typical beef stew but it has rotel tomatos, cinnamon, chili powder, apple juice, and granny smith apples added in.  It was very yummy!

That's all for now.  I have to get ready for the upcoming work week!  Ugh!  Not looking forward to it!

Hope always springs eternal, even against the odds, and especially at a football game! But let's don't bring up that sore subject - just look at the score and stats for the State-Duke game on Sat. OWWWWW
