This weekend July 22-24th, 2011 was full of interesting moments.
Thursday we randomly decided to go to the Days of '47 Rodeo at the old "E Center" via motorcycle and purchased tickets from a random lady selling her tix for the same price as the box office I believe. Whatever, sure. $5 each. The rodeo was juss as amateur as the ones in Logan and ID. They lost more money than gained in the show of their skills, but it was still fun.
Friday I got off work early b/c well, quite literally nothing has happened the past week, so I headed to IFA where there is some meat flavored dog food that apparently is the only kind of food my dog will eat. Freakin' expensive I was slightly annoyed. I gave him the cheap chicken stuff and he didn't eat it for two days, so here I am buying the expensive stuff so my dog will eat. Now he snarfs the good food down in one gulp and doesn't save any or eat it lightly throughout the day like he did before so now I have to monitor his eating even more and I was trying for the opposite so I could leave for the weekend and he could feed himself. Lil' squirt. Then I went out to WVC and bought an entertainment center with DVD space and more height and something that could actually hold the size of my TV. So I could take back the DVD rack I bought and that clock I don't need anymore. Saved some money there. I finally made it out of WVC and was still waiting for the boy, decided to go to Big Lots and play around.
On the way there my coolant hose popped off again. Third time with this car. -_- So I went shopping while it cooled down and bought some rags and stuff to help fix the car. I went out and slowly screwed the hose back on and filled it up again with water and some coolant I always keep handy just for this car. Drove it down to the boys place to let it cool down and suck the coolant in the tank thing. I was all hot and dirty and the boy shows up all monotone. He did help me tighten the hose more, tho, give him that credit. Turns out he was monotone cuz he was hungry. So we took the bike and went to the Indian food restaurant down the road from his place and had a new experience with curry and mangos. Then we came back and watched Rango.
Saturday I slept for forever, he went to play with his kids in the pool. I went to buy another coolant hose. Learned that Gma had traveled up to Shirleys in ID cuz her husband, Danny Luker, died Tuesday the 19th at the age of 59 in a local medical center. Went to the park with the kids and played, dropped the kids off, ate lunch at Gandolfo's mmm, and had a nice chat. We even went back to his place and juss chatted. He was very chatty that day, kinda nice. We started talking about swim suits and decided to go shopping for some. It was like two hours of shopping for my swim suit and nothing for him he didn't find what he wanted.
Sunday I slept in again forever and was kinda mad he didn't wake me for church in time. Went to church late, came home to find my roommate doing her weekly "moving her stuff in" and not being seen til the next week to add more stuff, wonder when she's actually gonna stay here. Don't really care much. Went for a walk with the dog to the park where they had the "People's Market" and an annoying singer. We did some Henna tattoos, mines on my ankle and his on his shoulder. Came back hot and sweaty, had a steak dinner for the July 24th 'holiday' and then had a Lost marathon the rest of the night.
And today, Monday, is when the Days of '47 Parade is happening and I'm sure most ppl are at work right now... Lame. I'm sure some celebrations will be happening tonight after work sometime if we're interested. But other than that, we left work early last week cuz it was slow and boring, why would it be busy on a 'holiday'? So we're leaving early again today I suppose. My head and bones hurt all day yesterday and walla! it's all cloudy and threatening to rain today. A nice overcast day for a parade though. I didn't sleep well last night. Some bug bit me behind my ear and my ear and that side of my throat is all swelling up. Ugh. I feel like I got hit with the drowsy stick again. Stupid allergies.
It was nice to be home for a weekend for once, but there wasn't much to do, even for a holiday weekend. Prolly a good weekend to stay home when my coolant hose is being questionable and my dog is wiggin out at fireworks. Gonna take my dog to the family reunion this weekend. I wonder if my car will make it...
