Wonderful Weekend

Wow. I was busy on Saturday. The National History Day judging went well. I judged the junior group performances and was just in awe of what some of these kids managed to come up with. The theme this year was "Taking a Stand" and so we had quite a few interesting historical topics to watch. I always love to volunteer my time for History Day because it's just so darn important to get these kids excited about history.

After I judged, I went and did a little shopping at the mall, then went over and saw my mother-in-law since she was in town visiting my husband. And then it was off to speak at the Bess Streeter Aldrich event. It went very well. Even had people laughing at my lame attempt at humor! I also had an elderly gentleman come up to me afterwards and ask, "Do you speak for senior citizens' groups?" and I responded, "Sure I would!" So he said he will be getting in touch with me. I am looking forward to that, whenever it will be.

When I got home on Saturday night, I was exhausted. And I slept a long time on Sunday, probably too long. But I think I needed to. Unfortunately, that put me behind on my writing chapter's BIAW (book in a week) program that we're doing. I think I managed to write five words on Sunday. Hubby took me out to supper and then we went over to Barnes and Noble where I bought Celeste Bradley's newest book - I just love her stuff. It's an automatic buy for me.

Tuesday is a dentist appointment and my chapter meeting. Ugh. I hate going to the dentist. Hate, hate, HATE. I would rather be knocked out then have to go through it. But I refuse to do that unless someone is in there with me. The last time I was at the dentist, it was rough. I think they filled three cavities at one time and I had a pounding headache the rest of the day for keeping my mouth open so long. From now on, they are going to do one at a time. That's easier on my head and my checking account.

Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. Okay, how did you do that? At my house, it's still Sunday evening. How did you get your blog to say Monday morning? Where do you live, anyway?

    Gena's doing this too. Did I miss something?

  2. Sounds like you had a great time.

    Quiet weekend here - as usual.

  3. Ouch!

    Though, I am one of those proverbial cheerful dentist lovers! (most likely because I've never had a cavity *GGG*).

    That's great that you had fun and others enjoyed your public speaking! May you have more successes to come.

  4. Rachel - I wrote this late last night, but wanted it up for my Monday post, so I just went to my post and comment options and changed the date to Monday. :-)

    Eve - I'm hoping for a quiet weekend next weekend! I really need one.

    Camilla - You like the dentist? Wow. I am in awe. :-)

  5. Never read Celeste Bradley--what does she write? I didn't get anything done either sigh!! Oh well. Only so many hours in a day!!
