So I haven't had time to write about this past weekend, but Sid and I went to Alabama for a much needed and eventful weekend. Well, I say eventful, we had so much fun being with the family, and were busy, but it wasn't hectic. We didn't get there until about 7:30 Friday night and went straight to Erin's house. We visited with Chris, Leslie, and Erin and Leslie and I compared pea pods. We spent the night at Mom and Dad's because Sid didn't want to miss breakfast at the new place. Last time we were in Oneonta, him and Mom and Dad went to eat at Charlie B's for breakfast and didn't even tell me they were going. So this time, I made sure I was up and ready. It's like Shoney's buffet but more home cooking. The biscuits aren't as good as NeNe's. As a matter of fact I didn't even eat one. But they have all kinds of meats, fruits, cereals, made-to-order omlets. If you can eat it for breakfast, it was there. So we enjoyed that with Mom and Dad.
Then Dad and Sid went to town to get some parts to fix the lawn mower and worked on it. Mom and I went to Wal-mart to get stuff for cooking supper. My birthday is August 2nd and I won't see Mom and Dad again before then so Mom cooked up both my favs. We had beef tenderloin cooked on the grill, hashbrown cass, mac and cheese, salad, and yeast rolls. My gosh it was good! And of course Sid mixed up some of his famous Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream. Chris and Leslie were going to Ruth's Chris for their anniversary but Erin was there with us, as was Maggie, Bo, and Pap-Paw. Mom also made me a birthday cake. We actually ate pretty early and Maggie and Bo had a party to go to for some friends that were getting married. So me and Sid hung out with Mom, Dad and Erin. We piled up and went to Dad's office to get some things and to storage, which it seems like we do at least twice each time we are in town. haha!
Sunday morning Mom showed us some stuff in Oneonta we hadn't seen in a while before church and of course after church we had lunch at Cafe on Main, another of Sid's O-town favs. I didn't want to leave because it had been such a plesant weekend and was getting a little homesick. Leslie called and wanted ice cream since she missed out the night before so Sid went to fixing it again. We spent the afternoon with everybody but Will (the Deer Expo was in Birmingham so he was there all weekend long). Boo!!!
Anyway, we left out about 4:30 and got home later than Sid would have liked but he was nice enough to let me stay and visit Sunday afternoon. We did have a blast and it's made me miss my Mom and Dad lots!!! I'll be going home tomorrow, Wednesday, after work to spend the night with Erin and spend some time with her on Thursday before school gets started back. So I'm looking forward to that. And to the next trip home when everyone is there.
Thanks for a great weekend Mom and Dad!!!
I take the Praxis on Saturday here in Mississippi at MSU Meridian Campus, so wish me luck!!!
