See - I'm not dead

I have just had a relatively busy week. I think I last posted on Tuesday. The hubs got off that evening and we relaxed. Wednesday afternoon my aunt and cousin came down from Vicksburg because my cousin is up for a job working offshore and he had to get his physical down here. They spent Wednesday night here. We had a yummy dinner of fried turkey, new potatoes, grilled asparagus, corn on the cob and dinner rolls. Hello, YUM. That next morning, they went to the physical, the hubs had to go to court as a witness due to a fight he saw and I had to get the mother to the airport. It was a busy morning but by 1 or so, we were done done done. The hubs and I relaxed the rest of the day. Well, as much as I could relax being that I was checking my email like a maniac waiting for my test results. I passed. I did really well on the test and was immediately offered a new job Friday morning. These people are nothing if not quick, I tell ya. I will start their training on 07/24 so I have some time to chill before the new job. That had to be the longest 14 days of my life. Waiting sucks ass.
That night the hubs and I went to Hooters to celebrate. I mean, that is where every hetero girl goes when she gets good news, right? No? Well, all right then. I love me some wings, so it worked for me. Then we took our stuffed full asses across the river to Cold Stone to get ice cream that is so good but made me even more stuffed so that I was pretty much miserable the rest of the night. Weren't pretty.
Friday the hubs and I were total slugs. I got up and finished watching disk 2 of Season 6 of the Creek. He finally got up and we hung out, went swimming, ate lunch, watched the flick 16 Blocks (boring - don't waste your time) and relaxed. I did actually take a shower at some point, but never did put make up or do my hair or put normal clothes on. We took the Pooper for a walk and ended up seeing our friends who live one street over. They invited us over to hang out so we went over - even with me looking like a hag. :) Had a nice evening on their back patio listening to the frogs screech their mating calls in the trees.
Today and tomorrow I have the wonderful pleasure of having the house to myself. I already watched Syriana. What a powerful movie. Makes you so proud to be an American. (Um, that was sarcasm in case you are new here.) George Clooney did a bang up job - no pun intended. I highly recommend this flick if you want to see a movie that challenges your ideals and makes you think. I happen to love movies like that, so this was right up my alley.
The rest of the day I am going to read my book and relax and watch movies I have already seen a million times on TBS or TNT. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, paradise. :)

Hubs and older boys watched Syriana last night. (I'll watch it tonight.)

Enjoy your evening!!

Hey...tell me how Syriana was. I've got it on my netflix list.

I knew you'd pass. Congrats on the new job.

Hooray on passing and getting the job!!! :)

Out of curiosity, who is your cousin working for? My company sets lots of people up for offshore jobs in your area too. :)

16 blocks was dull, i kept waiting for something to happen that would make it worth watching...no such luck. :)

I like Syrianna. I think I would have been more moved if I hadn't watched it when I wasn't feeling top notch (saturday), kept getting distracted.
