I don't know what it is but, every time Friday I know we are leaving to go see our son Blake I want to revert back to the Little Rascals movie and sing, I got two pickles, I got two pickles, I got two pickles, hey, hey, hey, hey. Except replace the I got two pickles part with I get to go see Blake. Childish I know. But, it does tell you how excited I get to go see my son. Yes, I just resisted the eager to call him my baby boy. I KNOW he will be 21 on December 2nd. But if you could have seen him when he was new born. He was 18 days early and they were worried his lungs wouldn't be developed. He was 5#'s 3oz's when he was born and came home at 4 #'s 14 oz's. He didn't hit 10 pounds until he was 3 months old. Anyway, long story longer, I'm supper excited to see Blake. I think I did a birthday post when Blake turned 20 that shows some new born pictures.
On top of getting to see Blake, it's Friday, payday and it is cool outside. To top it all off I'm busy at work so this day should go by fast.
Michael and I went on a date on Tuesday night. We went to see Taken 2 then had dinner at BJ's Bar and Grill. Taken 2 was great! It was action packed and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I got so caught up the S word slipped out. As in oh S#!&! Lucky for me there were no kids in the theater and the people around that heard laughed. Dinner was wonderful. They serve so much food that I was able to have dinner the next evening. We really like eating there because there is a wide variety of food to chose from, the deserts are killer and they have brew their own beer. So there is also a wide variety of beer and other drinks. I don't drink beer at all so I get Dr. Pepper because I'm addicted to the stuff. Michael will get a beer on occasion.
There really hasn't been that much excitement. Construction is finished so now we are slowly putting things back in place as well as getting rid of stuff that is no longer needed. When we are finished it will beautifully organized. I work with one other woman and the rest are men so, I don't expect it to stay nice and neat.
I have a million things to do so I will close for now. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

We are having some construction done at the office so my hours have been nuts. Friday I had to stay late because the flooring people were coming in again to wax the floors. They laid the flooring down about three weeks ago however, they didn't apply the wax like they were supposed to. When they were finished it looked horrible. There were huge gaps between the tiles and it was just an all around mess. The head construction guy came in today and now they have to demo the entire work room and kitchen floors and start from scratch. The upside is I get to pick a different tile because the original tile I picked ended up being way to much peach for any of our liking.
When I finally got home Friday night I packed and got ready for bed because we were supposed to get up really early to go to see one of our cousins play flag football. Due to the rain that game got called off. We did get to go to Derek's game but, it pored the entire time. We were all soaked by the time the game finished. It's a good thing we had a change of clothes because after we visited with Trish and Clint after the football game we headed on up to Durant, Oklahoma. No, we didn't go there to gamble. Blake was supposed to have a baseball game on Sunday. Michael got a text message from Blake at 6:30 AM to say the game was called off. So our trip to Durant was for nothing. On a positive note, the only room that was available had two twin beds. We each got our own bed for the night and it was fantastic! You know you have been married for over 20 years when you can say sleeping alone was fantastic. I think it was because I knew it was for one night and he just a few feet over. When he isn't home I don't sleep well at all!
It's now Monday night and I'm still stuck up at the office waiting on the construction workers to wrap up the installation of an electric screen. I had plans to go see my God daughter play volleyball tomorrow but, that plan is out the window because I will be stuck up at the office every night having to babysit the construction workers. Don't get me wrong, I am VERY thankful for this job. They are a wonderful group of people to work with. I will try and take some picks of everything and show you the finished product.
Hope you have a good evening!

We went to The Go Go's concert on Saturday night at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth, Texas. It didn't start until 10:30PM. You know you are old when your husband tells you the concert starts at 10:30 PM and you go "WHAT!????" haha
Michael has loved The Go Go's as long as I can remember. He has been in love with Belinda Carlisle for as long as I can remember as well. So, when we heard they were going to be at Billy Bob's I said go ahead and buy the tickets. At the time I had no idea it was going to start so late. But, if I really think about it, the headliners don't normally start until that late anyway so I guess it's no big deal.
Saturday night we get cleaned up and head out what I new was going to be to early. Michael it notorious for being early. We parked over by Coopers BBQ which is directly across from Billy Bob's. Because we were so early we got to eat some BBQ. Coopers has the best BBQ. They also have live bands on the weekend.
After we ate we walked across the street, went to will call to get our tickets and hit up the gift shop. We didn't buy anything but, it's always fun to walk through the gift shop to see the fun things they have. We still had some time so we walked around looking at all of the had prints or boot prints mounted on the wall of the various groups/people that have preformed at Billy Bob's. They had a small rodeo going on in another area. At one point in time they had a mechanical bull. I guess they have taken it out or I just never found it. It was odd going into a country and western facility seeing people dressed up in 80's garb. Some of the bartenders were dressed in 80's attire as well. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of people dressed in western attire. I guess I just wasn't thinking about pulling out the 80's stuff to fit in. Heck, I couldn't fit in any of the 80's stuff I had back then if I tried! They have a stuffed bull in a bucking pose that people climb on to get their picture taken. Why someone with a mini skirt on would do this is beyond me but, it happened.
We finally made our way down to our seats. We had fantastic seats. It was dead center of the stage. We were in the "second" row. Which sounds like you are right there but with the way they have things set up it's not quite as close as it sounds. They have 2 6' tables in the front row space to walk then 2 6' tables for the second row. Etc. They were still great seats. The show started right at 10:30. It was awesome! A guy behind us apparently got kicked out for standing up and dancing. Then at one point Belinda had some people from the crowd come on stage and had everyone in the crowd stand up and dance. The majority of the folks sat back down after that but several groups stayed standing. There is no way they could throw that many folks out. It's almost impossible not to be dancing in your seat at the very least when The Go Go's are dancing around singing their songs and having a blast. If they come to your town, I would strongly recommend you going if you like them. We had a blast! That was Michael's second time to see them. He saw them in 1985 the first time. This was my first time seeing them. They still look fantastic and they are in their 50's. CRAZY! We will for sure be going to see them again if they are in our neck of the woods.
Hope you had a great weekend and a wonderful Wednesday.
