The Weekend

What a weekend! My daughter's birthday party was a smash success! We went to the local fun center and had a blast. We raced go-carts, played miniature golf, ate pizza and cake, played games, and even went on a ride that takes you four stories high, then drops you. NOT my favorite, but my daughter went on it three times! She just loved it.

She was pretty tired on Saturday, though! For my mom's Mother's Day gift, my daughter and I took her to a Victorian house where they serve high tea. Dressing up and wearing Victorian hats is encouraged in this place! After we came home, we watched PBS's cooking shows, and then Molly fell asleep on the couch. I couldn't resist taking a photo.

My monitor, unfortunately, decided to permanently quit on Saturday. On Sunday, I went and bought another one at Best Buy - not the kind I wanted, but I didn't have enough money to get that particular one. So I settled for a big, bulky monitor that was on clearance. I'm just thankful to have a monitor that doesn't turn white anymore!

I did manage to get some editing done on my novel last night. I'm just going through it one more time to check for spelling errors, grammatical problems, etc. My goal is to have it out the door this week. It's time to move on!


  1. What a cutie!

    Yay on the editing. I'm sure you'll get it done in time to reach your goal.

  2. That picture's going to be worth money in about ten years! Sounds like a great weekend, Melissa (except for the monitor dying, of course).

  3. Awww=your daughter

    Congratulations on the near completion of your MS!

  4. Awww!! Good luck on the editing. :)

    The Victorian tea sounds like fun!

  5. How cute! I'm sure it was a hectic weekend for her. I'd love to do a high tea. We have a tea shop in my town but it isn't Victorian per se. My daughter goes for her birthday with her grandmother. I told her we could host a tea party this summer.

  6. So cute. I wish I could sleep like that! Congrats on almost finishing--I know that feeling.

  7. Oh my god that picture made me laugh out loud in my pod! Too cute!

  8. Kudos on the progress on your novel Melissa! And that picture is just delightful. SOunds like a great weekend all in all!


I love to hear from you!
