Weekend Recap: Survival of April Fools, Soccer & a Bad Sunburn
A recap of my weekend.
Friday aka April Fool’s Day
I survived. Shew! 😉 A joke was played on myself when I got ready for the day. I had an awesome hair day and got all dolled up with only one place to go…Walmart. That is just evil, evil I say! I tried to come up with somewhere else to go but I came up empty. My son tried to pull a fast one on me as he walked through the door from school. He came in and said he had the worst day of his life, he got in trouble all day long, and had his card moved to black. After my heart came back up from my stomach he finally broke his straight face and yelled April Fools! Little turkey, he had me going. B came home with scratch off lottery tickets for all of us and as he scratched off his he started jumping around and yelling that he just won $10,000. He had the kids going for a couple of minutes with that one until W called him out on it. I also found out on Friday that I got defriended by my sister in law. Come to find out, one of the reasons she defriended me was that I always beat her score on Bejeweled Blitz. Are you serious? Yes I am. It’s a facebook game. I play on my phone when I am bored and she doesn’t like that I out score her. At first I thought this was an April Fool’s joke but I was mistaken this reason was for real.
Saturday W had his first soccer game of the season. It was a beautiful but extremely windy day and he was pumped! The team has only 2 practices under their belt but they did great. They ended up losing but they played their butts off and had a blast. The team they played was really good and the rumor on the field is that they selected their players on their team and the majority had been playing for some time. It’s all good though! W had a great time, played his butt off to the point of getting cramps in his side and had a smile on his face the whole time. That’s all that matters! They will improve with each practice and game. Here are a few pics from the game. I am proud of my boy!
I got a wild hair up my butt Sunday and headed out front to the flower bed from hell. I hate my flower bed mainly because it is plagued by the weed from hell…Crabgrass. I am convinced the crabgrass root is connected to hell in some way. If anyone has crabgrass you know what I am talking about. For 3 years now I have battled this damn weed and every year I try to get a handle on it only to throw my hands up in the air come mid summer and say F*ck it. I worked my ass off for 4 hours yesterday pulling weeds and crabgrass roots to the point of having raw patches on my fingers. My whole body is aching today right down to my fingernails being sore. To top it all off I am rocking a sunburn, a bad vibrant red sunburn on my back. I have officially applied aloe for the first time this season..twice. It hurts. See look!
Sunscreen didn’t even cross my mind, it was sunny but I thought I was in the shade for the most part (I was obviously very very wrong). After 4 hours in the bed using muscles that have been dormant for 4 months I was done, worn out. I applied my Preen and next weekend will be to mulch and reapply more Preen. I will win this battle of the crabgrass and if I don’t I’m bringing in the big dogs..The Professionals. The crabgrass doesn’t stand a chance this year. It will die! I will reclaim my flower bed!
