weekend update

**Updated below**
Here's a few tidbits from our weekend.

*Jeremy came back from St. George very sunburned, but had a good time with the Rhino in all the sand dunes. Since I'm unaccustomed to not having my husband home at night like some women, I sleep with a big old kitchen knife right next to my bed. Let that be a warning to any of you who are just waiting for Jeremy to go out of town again.

*Tyler has learned the word "mine". He now has to stop in the middle of eating, drinking, playing, and tell me that what he has is "MINE".

*Alexis gave her first talk in Primary, about following the prophet. I thought she did a good job, and I thought I did a good job writing the talk and assembling all the pictures.

*Tyler went to nursery for the first time. No one left the room with a black eye or a bloody nose, so I take it as a success.

*Tyler also got to ride in the rhino for the first time (we took it out Saturday night), and he seemed to like it for the most part. He's still little so he slides down in the seat a bit, but he didn't mind the bumps and kept his sunglasses on most of the time. He looked very studly.

*We had a birthday dinner for my sister, which she made herself. Not my idea of a good birthday dinner, but she's a little weird.

*I broke several of my diet rules, but despite that I think I've lost a pound.

*Jeremy and I were debating about cutting Tyler's mullet off (I want to, Jeremy doesn't) so my dad (my whole family seems to be in favor of the mullet) suggested we take it to a game of ladder golf. I think they all expected Jeremy to just kill me, but when I'm determined and focused I do alright at the game. We played best out of three. I won the first, Jeremy won the second, and he beat me by 1 point in the third. So as per our agreement, the mullet is here to stay until April 26th, when it will be then cut off into a mohawk. All this just so my brother can see it when he comes to visit; he better appreciate it.

*I saw a really funny skit on SNL during "Weekend Update", but I can't find it on youtube. If I ever do I will post it here because it still makes me smile just thinking about it.

*And today Alexis is being worse than I've seen her in a long time. I don't know what her problem is, and I don't know how to fix it when she gets like this, but Jeremy's going to the Jazz game tonight so it's going to be a long day. Fortunately she's got a little friend over that's helping the situation, but I'm so exasperated by her. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Ah. I feel a little better now.

How was your weekend?

*I was reminded that Alexis went to her first non-parent birthday party this weekend and had so much fun. And I heard she gave the pinata a good whack, not a little dainty one. That's my girl!

*I went to a county fair and attended a free hypnotist show in which my friend michael was hypnotised and did hilarious things.
*I worked on an assignment only to go to class to find out i'm the only sane person in a room full of pscyhos which makes me the insane one. oh, i hate that class.
*I went to a massive pet fair. i won tricia a stuffed animal dog at a putting booth. she kissed one huge ugly but gorgeous bulldog, and we watched trained dogs catch frisbees and weiner dogs race.
*I ate really good pizza.
*I played a weird golf game with some friends. it was teams and my teammate, my wife, who isn't very good, made a totally clutch shot, to which i was very grateful.
*I wet to a mexican popsicle stand. I'll leave it to you to determine if that means it was a business that sells mexican popsicles, or popsicles made of mexicans.
*I went to a bunch of meetings on sunday, and then did nothing the rest of the night. tricia wasn't feeling good so i took care of her.
btw, the mullet should stay until its not cute anymore but must remain no later than april 26th

I just have to comment on Aaron's comment....I think the mexican popsicle stand is neither a business, nor a stand selling popsicles made from mexicans. I think it is a stand that was made by mexicans, for the soul purpose of selling american popsicles for a very good price. (Because that's how money transfers in Mexico, right?) :)
Anyhow, my weekend was good. Thanks! (Highschool reunion, Substituting Primary CTR 6-7 class, helping Jake give his first scripture, dinner at my in-laws, and Jake's first non-parent birthday party. (You forgot to add that!) :)
