This Weekend....

I really had a very enjoyable weekend. My friend Julie came to visit.

Really, we're just friends.

Anyway, she gives a great account of the weekend, just click on "Julie" at the right edge of this blog to read it.

I just want to add a point or two.

The gift I bought for Ashlee was a remote control tarantula. I saw one at the Toys R Us in Denver, and Andi and I (Andi AndI? Hmmmm.) thought of Ashlee as soon as we saw it. I should mention that Diana, Ashlee's mother, is absolutely terrified of spiders. Ashlee loves getting toy spiders and torturing her mother with them. So I'm in trouble for this gift.

But honestly, the look on Ashlee's face when she opened it, then again when she started controlling it, made all the trouble I might get in worth it. She was thrilled.

When we went to Kneader's, I tried to pay for Julie's lunch, but she wasn't having any part of it. So when we went to breakfast on Sunday, I paid for breakfast. I'm not sure why it bugs her, but she was my guest, so I wanted to pay. Granted, she was staying at my sister's, but she was still my guest. So I paid.

I got in trouble a lot this weekend.

It sure was fun, though.

I know, I know. I need to work on being more gracious when people try to do nice things for me. I'm sorry! And, thanks again for breakfast. And for inviting me up - I had a blast!
