Girls Night with Dac=Sweaty yardwork=Fun Rewards

So...my husband decided he wanted to have a guys night this weekend...he went camping with his dad and brother on Friday night, and then tonight his little brother is sleeping at our apartment. So...i figured that a boys for him meant I deserved a girls night with Dacia!

I had images of shopping, scrapbooking, eating, and playing games running through my mind....and I was just ecstatic for my girls weekend. But alas...there is always someone out to get me and ruin my fantasy...this time, it was Dacia. Dacia with gardening tools and plants and a big smile saying "I'm gardening today! You get to help!"
Although I was anything but excited to begin with, it ended up being really fun to spend time with Dac and to reminisce about old, yucky gardening times with mom back in the old house. We both realized that although we had always complained about gardening and vowed to never have our own gardens, we were both very interested in having our own gardens now. We are so much more like mom in the gardening aspect than we ever thought we would be! Its kinda fun! After 7 hours of sweating, weeding, raking, tilling, planting and watering, the garden actually looked really good! I never thought it would take 7 hours to do 3 areas in a yard, but it did...oh well.
My favorite things about the day were talking with dac, the pretty front yard once we were done, being treated to Bajio, AND...best of all...Joe taught me how to ride!!! Finally!! I graduated from the mini 50 and learned how to ride a TTR 125!! yay for me!! and Joe even said I caught on fast...of course that was followed by Dacia saying that he says that to everyone...but I think I did really well. It was a lot of fun...and now all I have to do is teach my husband, get him hooked, and then WE can buy one! :)This was the first weekend I spent away from my husband and it was definitely very lonesome. I have definitely become a very needy wife...I hate to sleep without him. Its lonely :(
Anyway...things are going pretty well with Topher and I. He seems to really like his job at the Cancer institute and is learning a lot. He also hasn't tried to change his major or anything, so obviously, it's still good for him!
I'm still working at Sweet's...I like it all right, the management is pretty cool (doesn't hurt that management is my mother-in-law) and the other day I persuaded Mum and Sam to come in for a tour!! I got mom to wear a hair net, and even though Sam was always asking questions and rarely paying attention to the rules (staying inside the lines!!!), we had a lot of fun and I got them to leave with a big stack of candy in the end! I miss everyone a lot and am really excited to have dinner with the fam tomorrow! I'm also way excited for the days to come...I just feel energized and ready to work. Ready to clean my house, and finish my online class, and spend time with my family...I'm especially excited for whem Emily comes this summer, and also for the reunion!
I hope all is well with everyone, that Emily is feeling better (You scared me Emi-lou...you're not allowed to go to the hospital unless its to have a baby!), that Jen had fun in Vegas, and that everyone else is doing well also. Love you all!

Isn't gardening fun?!!! My mom made a comment last year when we were putting in our yard that she thought we would never want to garden, yet alone love it, but there is something about having your own yard and working to make it beautiful. I find myself more often than I would like to admit going out, soaking in every plant and blade of grass, and anxiously awaiting every bloom. Too fun!

And what is this about Emily in the hospital. I've been playing phone tag with her for a few days and had no idea. Yikes!

Hello Buggy-boo,
I wish you could have stayed for dinner last night! We had fried chicken, corn on the cob and yummy salad. I would even have made dessert if you stayed. But you had to leave and we were all so sad.
