After dropping Charlie off at the airport at 6 this morning, it only took me about 3 hours to realize that I did not want to stay home alone this long weekend. Charlie's bro Jefferey was planning to drive one of our cars home this weekend, so I decided to go with him. I quickly got the house cleaned (I hate coming home to a messy house), got the cat set up to survive without us and packed the essentials for Tucker and I.
I always enjoy the time I get to spend with Jefferey. He is a really bright kid and has a lot to add to conversation. Just the type of car buddy I like! Whether it be religion, politics or life in general, we always have some great chats.
Once I got to Moo's house, I took to setting up her finest infomercial purchase to date: the Total Gym. Two and a half years ago, Charlie and I threw Moo a surprise party and stuck the folded Total Gym in the corner of the living room... You'll never guess where I found it?! Yup, in the corner of the living room. I had to watch the instructional dvd to figure out how to put the darn thing together, but it turns out the Total Gym is a fantastic workout. Poor Tucker seems to be terrified of the machine and I probably shouldn't have goofed around on it (back is starting to hurt), but other than that it seems to be a great investment.
Moo wanted to watch He's Just Not That Into. I warned her that I would be asleep before the plot line got started, but she insisted. Sure enough, we were both out long before the halfway point. I am so glad I decided to come home. It is much more fun to fall asleep during a movie with your Moo than it is alone.
