Is that a tree or are you just happy to see me?!?!?!

Ohhhh what a weekend!!! I sure do love the weekends. I know I do not work a regular 9 to 5 job where I get a paycheck every other Friday... but hey I love the weekend just as much as everyone else.... maybe even more!

Well, this weekend started off nice and slow. I spent Friday night with my MP3 player and a glass (well two glasses) of wine. It was a stressful day and well, I needed to relax. It was nice... I love to listen to music and the glass of wine was a nice addition! However, before the wine... I was singing along with the songs... and driving my Kyle insane! It was great fun! We had a blast in the kitchen that night!

Well, Saturday I got up and decided to do something for myself that I haven't done in a long time... I went tanning. Yes I know it is superficial and there are health risks involved... well I find it relaxing and enjoyable... and it is 15-20 minutes of alone time with silence... AHHHHH!!!!!

I came home to find that Tommy and Jeff (some friends) were next door at Jennie's (best friend and neighbor) talking about cutting down the one tree in her backyard. So we got prepared and we had a blast.... watching them cut it down. With the number of adults and the horde of children that Jennie and I have... clean up was pretty quick.

That night we had a pretty nice bon fire... Jennie drank a 6 pack of Smirnoff (all by herself... lush) and then a couple of Mike's Hard Lemonade. She was great! Fine for the longest time; then all of sudden she was completely off her rocker! Well, I had also rented what I think is one of the funniest movies ever... Observe and Report! Oh I already adore Seth Rogan...he is great! This movie is AWESOME!!!!!

Well.... today was time for day two of tree logging! Chris was able to talk Tommy into cutting down the BIG and I mean B I G tree in the backyard... next to the house... messing with the foundation. So we all got up... we got some coffee and donuts and were prepared to record (Jennie Jason and I) the event while they did all the work. It was pretty sweet.

Another day of clean up... my poor hands feel raw! My back is achy but overall I feel pretty damn good after doing some physical labor.

Well... while cranking the pulley thing that was pulling the tree we were cutting down we ran out of chain... so Jeff grabbed hold and started pulling it... and TIMBER.... the tree met the ground!

All I can say is I had a great weekend with my friends and my kids! well that is that... hope i didn't bore the hell out of you! ha ha ha
