It feels good to be lazy.

I told my DH yesterday that we would be doing nothing today. I needed a break. Guess what? We did NOTHING today! Yay! What a thoughtful man. :) Well, no not exactly nothing. I mean, we did actually move around some. You know, from recliner to kitchen and back.  We also managed to go outside a few times to relieve the dog. Oh, and we watched 3 movies! Yes, 3 movies! They were awesome though. We started with Yogi Bear. That movie had me laughing so much. Definitely worth the watch and a LOT better than I thought it would be. The second movie was Beastly. Well, if that isn't a learn-a-lesson movie I don't know what is. I enjoyed this one as well. I wasn't sure though because I've never been a fan of the grownup version of the Olsen twins but really, she was a good actress. I was impressed. The last movie we watched was Rio. I've wanted to watch this one for some time now. Yes, I also liked this one. However, I think I enjoyed Yogi Bear a little more. I just felt Yogi Bear had a tad bit more humor in it. Or at least, things I found interesting. Not to say you shouldn't watch it! Because I fully feel you should and I DID like it. I just felt I enjoyed Yogi Bear a little more.

....and now I think I will go crash from this exhausting day I had. :P

How loud was it? was so loud, if I were in the back bedroom I would have heard it.

At least, I could swear I would have.

Last night our dog wanted to get up on the bed. He is a short dog, a Chiweenie dog named Toby. So when he tried to jump up he missed and decided to try jumping up again. Unfortunately, at this point in time my DH decided he wanted to help. As he reached down to grab Toby, Toby jumped up and WHAM! they met in the middle of stride....with their heads. I kid you not when I say that you could hear the thump as they collided! Toby seemed unfazed (correctly spelled!) by it all and finally got on the bed like he wanted. My DH was holding his head. He hurt but was more concerned about Toby, thinking something horrible would happen to him. And I was worried about both of them, thinking gloom and doom things (yeah, really, it hurt him that bad!). Of course, they are both just fine today. DH just can't run his finger across his head. Seems he has a tiny sensitive (bruised) spot now. So every now and then I hear an "ohh!" coming from his direction as he accidentally runs his fingers atop the area. Poor guy!

To weave a Friendship Bracelet...or maybe not.

It's been a long several weeks for me. I've started Fall classes and the newer schedule has kept me hopping! I'm enjoying it though.

So,  I follow other blogs and I sign up for giveaways. Yes, giveaways. It's fun to do though it can get time consuming. I've had to slack off a bit while I get use to juggling my new class schedules but am slowly entering more and more of them. I came across one that reminded me of a simple, yet fun, childhood memory. I ran across a giveaway for a Friendship Bracelet Maker. Now, first let me just say, this is the cutest thing ever! I do wish I had one like this when I was younger.

(Cue the Childhood Memory Scene)

When I was in my early to middle teens it was a HUGE fad to make these bracelets. The only difference is that we didn't have the luxury of this neat little gadget. We would pick the string colors we wanted. Tie them into a knot. Get that trusty old safety pin out and poke it through the knot at the top of the strings. After stabbing a finger or two and a little blood loss we would then attach the safety pin (which is attached to the strings) to, in my instance, a beautiful bed spread cover. Then the fun part comes with the weaving of the strings. I don't recall ever having patterns to follow and to keep the strings separate we'd have to do some very intricate finger separating. It was fun, did I mention that! No kidding. Ah the memories.....and the countless hours spent unwrapping the bracelet over tiny little mistakes. It sure did teach me patience!
