a fun, family and friend fourth

i’m still recovering from the long holiday weekend.

out of four days together, joe and i got to spend about a couple hours together. that’s it.

on friday we went shopping for things we needed for our trip. on saturday, we got up early and headed to joe’s parents’ cabin in blue ridge, georgia. it’s so pretty and peaceful up there. we sat out on the glider rocker on the porch with our books and got through about two pages before passing out for several hours. that night we cooked out and then went to a double feature at the drive-in: war of the worlds and batman begins. ticket price? $5. yep. you read right. five freakin dollars for two of the summer’s biggest movies. too bad i didn’t stay awake through most of them. since it’s outside the movies didn’t start until it was dark, which was around 9:30 p.m., and we didn’t get home until around 2:30 a.m. my poor body can’t stay awake past 10 p.m.

on sunday we left after joe’s sister and her fiance arrived, napped for a couple of hours at my house and then headed out for dinner and fireworks with julisa, one of my close friends who was visiting from memphis. we passed out after fireworks.

we woke up around 10 a.m. on monday and were going to have a leisurely morning with nothing really to do, but then joe’s friend jon called and wanted us to meet him for lunch. we both like hanging out with jon, so we headed back to cartersville early to meet him. then it was off to town center mall in kennesaw to hang out with joe’s other friend named john for about an hour before meeting phillip, wendy and one of phillip’s friends at the theater for war of the worlds.

whew. i’m getting tired just recapping everything!

after the movie, joe and i locked ourselves in his apartment and sat on the deck and watched fireworks. that is, until, i somehow broke out in a rash on one side of my face and my neck. so it was off to the quik trip for benedryl and then to bed.

what a weekend. we’re busy again this weekend, but next weekend we’re locking ourselves in and not answering the phones.

my new favorite site

i just love this web site. joe introduced me to stuff on my cat, and these are the most hilarious pictures i have ever seen. i’ve got to try this with my cats. what do you all think?
