I say it was a big kids weekend because I got to have some fun with my sister and her husband without her kids around. I love and adore her 3 kids, but it was a lot of fun hanging out this weekend without the kids. It’s my boyfriend, Chris’s birthday this Wednesday and who really gets to celebrate their birthday on a weekday? So my sister and her husband came to town Saturday to spend the weekend with us. The guys ran a couple of errands while us girls went and got our hair done, I have been needing to get my highlights done for some time now… so I was glad I finally got that done. I also got a trim up to, shortened the back a little and it came out really cute. We met up with the guys in time to grab some yummy morsels at the Texas Roadhouse, one of my fav places to eat. Love their fried pickles… YUMM. We then sent the guys home as we girls hit up a couple of stores for some new outfits. I actually gave up on the trying on clothes because it was 104-105 and it was to damn hot to be trying on clothes in a closed in dressing room with no air circulating. Have I mentioned before how irritated I get when I’m hot… VERY IRRITATED… so shopping ended quickly. I’m not a big fan of shopping anyway. I know it’s nuts for a woman to say that, but I’m a get in – get what you need/want – and get the heck out as soon as possible. Not to say I don’t like to spend money… I just do it quickly 🙂
Anyway, we made it home in time to change and head north to the Casino. Chris has been begging to go to the Casino for awhile now. I am not a big gambler, unless it’s a sure win for me, so I don’t fancy the casino much. So he was all giddy when he found out we were going to the casino to celebrate for his birthday. We had a good time at the casino, it was one my sister and her hubby hadn’t been to and I had only been once before on New Years Eve with Chris. It was fun, we had a good time. I went up and down (money-wise) but mostly down. Chris is always luckier, or just better at it than I am… so he won back some of what I lost. It was fun, so that’s what matters. We made it back about 3 am… not to bad. Chris had taken off on Sunday so it was nice to sleep in for a change, we NEVER do that between our combined 3 jobs and his full time school schedule and my volunteer work, we don’t know what sleeping in is like anymore. So it was a treat not to have to wake up to an alarm. So Sunday we didn’t do too much until later in the afternoon when we got ready for the Ranger’s game. Rangers vs. White Sox 6 pm game… I did my best to prepare for the heat… but there really is no preparing for Tx summer heat… OMG Chris had got a couple of small fans and one that sprayed a mist, some neck cooler things, I froze some water bottles and packed those and we headed to the game. Our seats were good, but of course they were in the sun and very little breeze. I can only describe it as cutlets basting in their own juices under a broiler. OMG, I swear I have never sweated so much, if so I don’t remember when. Men and boys nearby were taking off their shirts… not always a good thing to look at. Others had fans, sandwich bags of ice sitting on their shoulders, towels soaked with water on their heads and around their necks… it was awful. The game was fun, you got used to the melting after awhile and just dealt with it. It became somewhat humorous after awhile. People were just disgusting around us… we over heard one lady talking to her kids who wanted to go get some ice cream, she said she was not going anywhere cause it looked like she had peed her pants. She finally snapped and said go get it yourself. I couldn’t help but laugh. We were all decked out in our Ranger attire, I had my Kinsler shirt on, my Ranger flip flops and even had my pedicure done in ranger colors, ranger logo and baseball stitching on my toes… so cute. I also had my new Ranger’s cap on. Well the cap worked great in keeping the sun outta my eyes… however a couple of hours into the game my sister said, “WHAT’S ON YOUR HAT” her face put me into a fright. I took it off and my brand new WHITE cap had this burnt orange ring around the whole cap. My highlights had sweated off onto my cap. I was shocked… then my sister looked at me again and said there’s a ring around your hair where the dye is gone. I became panicked. I said WHAT, are you serious. Tell me your lying… she was laughing and snorting so hard she could hardly confess that she was lying. She then of course had to share the “joke” with her husband. DAMN BITCH !!! Scared the hell outta me. She got a good laugh outta that one. I did to later when I confirmed she was lying. It really is funny, but it wasn’t at that moment. So now I am hoping to get my hat cleaned… who knows if that dye will come out now. ANYWAY… the Ranger’s pulled out a win, only the 3rd game we have won against the White Sox this season… I know they were just waiting for me to be there to pull out a win 🙂 It was a fun time. Always great to have time with my sister, even when she is giving me a hard time or driving me nuts. So we went to dinner after the game and I tell you, we laughed until my side hurt. My sister is a nut and she makes me laugh at the stupid things she says and does. I don’t know how her husband puts up with her, but then again I don’t know how Chris puts up with me either. GOD LOVE THESE MEN !! So after dinner as we head home, my sister asks me if I have any pads (sorry if your a man reading this, but it’s to funny not to share). I said no and so she proceeds to get upset that I am not providing for my company in the way a host should. This is hilarious to me. She has already commented to me before how she could not believe that I would have Chris go to the store and buy women products for me… I said he’s a real man and comfortable enough to do those things for me. Her husband just laughs… So Chris then volunteers to drop us off at home and go pick some up. I tell him what kind when he leaves. Well he didn’t take his cell and when he gets home he said he couldn’t remember what to get so he got 2 kinds. The thin ones and the thick ones. I laughed and told him I hate the “boat” ones. Then my sister comes out and asks if they are in the bathroom and he said there we in the living room in the sack. I yell from the back room to make her wear a “boat” she deserves it !!! I know it’s stupid but you gotta love a family that can laugh over the dumbest stuff.
Well my sister’s husband had an appt with the dr in Dallas this morning, the dr that performed hist liver surgery a few months back. Joe, my sister’s hubby hasn’t been doing so good. He has kidney disease and his dr back home told him a couple of weeks ago that he needs to plan for disability because his kidneys are failing. Well my sister calls me about 20 mins after they got to the dr and says they are admitting him right away. They are concerned over a few things and are afraid he might have a brain aneurysm. I could hear the worry in her voice. I sent Chris back to their home (3 hours away) to pick up her kids and bring them here. I love that Chris loves my family so much and will drop anything for them as he does me. That means so much to me. So now we wait. My sister said this is not the way she wanted to end her weekend getaway and I agree.
So if your reading this, I thank you for sharing in my life and ask that if you believe or not, whatever it is or whomever it is you believe in, could you say a little prayer, or have some positive thoughts sent our way, we could use all we can get.
Peace, love, happiness and lots of laughs to all of you out there !!
