First things first, I'd rather have yall complain about my word verification than to have to delete comment after comment of spam everyday. So the "damned word verification" stays! *cheese*
Now back to my entry...
I don't even know where to start about this 3 day weekend of mine. I'll do my best with a short version...
Saturday I started washing the mountains of clothes. I don't know how 2 people can generate so much laundry! When it's time to go get my hurr did I throw the wet clothes in the van and off I go. While getting my hair done my loctician tells me to count my locs. I know I have about a million of them! LOL! Next weekend I plan to roll my locs with rollers so I'll used that time to count 'em all. After the hurr appointment I run to the laundromat and dry the clothes. When I got home I had a message from Ladykat. Her and WonderWoman were throwing stuff on the grill and offered Pooka and I an invite to come through. Bet!
I call Babydaddy and tell him Pooka will be at LadyKats and his friend was okay with bringing him there vs. my place. We get to Ladykats and who comes out from the back? This chick I don't care for. I haven't given her a name but I blogged about her. She is the last chick to confess to me she messed with Babydaddy, the chick who had the other 2 tickets to go see the Lion King. The chick that broke the camels back regarding my relationship with Pooka's daddy. Hmmmm let's just call her Straw. So Straw comes out from the back and my stomach turns. There was a point were we were the only folks in the living room and we made an effort at small talk. I'm guessing I was giving off a vibe or something because she told me that she was leaving at 6:30 which was about 20-30 minutes from then. YAYYYYYYYYYY!
After the chit chat and carrying on Straw leaves and WonderWoman breaks out a brand new clothes line. I don't say anything as she is manipulating this thing. Ladykat gets up and helps her even the line out. After I couldn't hold my curiosity in anymore I finally asked what they were doing...
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww shucks! I hadn't doubled dutched in many many years. I have trophies they display how good I used to be! Memories! Anyways. They get the rope right and we call the kids to come outside. At first it was just our people, within 15 minutes we had the whole neighborhood outside trying to get there jump on. It was such a good time OMG! Can't no video game touch the neighborhood outside playing with the only drama being someone yelling "you messed me up" when they made a mistake jumping. We all felt like we were 10 again. Did I mention that some of this neighborhood shenanigans was filmed? ****warning**** if you see a heavy set black woman with locs wearing a red, white, and blue shirt with some jean capris jumping double dutch in a parking lot on you tube....that would be me! LOL!
We all stay outside for a long time. Babydaddy and his friend show up and visit for awhile. Pooka had no idea he was coming so she was very happy to see him. I like his new friend. She seems very laid back and down to earth, not to mention the little jokes she'd chime in with from time to time were actually funny. I give her a thumbs up for him based on first impressions. They visit for about an hour or so then head on to SC where her people are. We jump until we all are hungry and the neighborhood goes back to the houses they came from.
Sunday I do more washing and cleaning. I get a call from Saturn, one of the new parents I've stared hanging with. The one I blogged about that says Sa-ter-rin instead of Saturn ***mental note****make a cast of characters***end mental note*** Anyway, I get a call from Saturn to confirm me watching her son and the other mothers son(I'll find her a name soon) until she got off work. The time comes and I go outside thinking I was going to take the car. I press the unlock button on the key fob and nothing happens. As I walk closer and closer to the car nothing happened. I get right up on the car and still nothing. I think it's just the key fob gone bad. I manually unlock the door and press the unlock button so Pooka can get in....nothing. I put the key in the ignition and give it a turn...nothing. I don't really freak out. I'll just call the dealership later. We hopped in the van and take off.
I go get the boys and take the other mother to work. On the way I told the other momma what happened with the car. She asked if I gave anyone a jump and I told her the last time I used the car was to give my neighbor a jump. She told me that giving her the jump killed my battery and how something similar happened to another friend of hers. Great! I figure I'd try jumping my car later before calling the dealership to see if that helps.
We get back to my place and of course the boys want to play the Wii. As they are making their crazy looking Miis the phone rings. It's Ladykat talking about they pressing replay from yesterday and adding the pool. Sweet! I told her I had to okay it with the boys momma's and get back. Once everything was okay'ed we hoped in the van and headed to Wally world. LadyKat needed more drinks and the boys needed swim shorts. We handle all that and did the whole pool/cookout thing all over again. Straw came later in the evening *sigh* and hung out but I didn't pay her any mind. We ended up watching this comedian Jeff Dunham. He does most of his acts with puppets. Can we say funny? Ladykat and Wonderwoman had watched these dvd's so much they would do the material with him! I plan on added him to my dvd collection as well. He is just silly!
I had forgot to charge my phone the night before and Saturn told me that she'd be calling periodically to check on her daredevil son. So my solution was to cut my phone off and periodically turn it on to see if I missed a call or had a message. All night long I would check and didn't have any indicators of anything so I'd turn it back off. After the DVD's it was getting late and I was ready to go. I cut my phone on to call Saturn and tell her I was on the way. Before I could call her number fully, the text message indicator went off. It was Saturn asking if everything was okay. I was texting her back to tell her we were and that we were on the way when my phone rang...It was Saturn! LOL! I pick up the phone and she is in a state of worry and was telling me how she kept calling me and leaving message after message and was freaking out cuz I wasn't responding. After I calm her nerves we hang up and I am confused. I asked everyone in the room if they noticed me periodically check my phone and they confirmed that I wasn't going crazy. I gather up the chirrin I came with, dropped the boys off, go home, go to bed.
Monday, I slept most of the day. It was the most beautiful thing EVER! Then I cleaned a bit more. I really did the clean thing in slow motion this weekend. I am still not fully done. While I'm washing dishes my phone rings. It's Saturn. Her and the other momma were taking the boys to their complexes pool then cooking out! *sigh* I'm not really up for it but it would save me from having to cook dinner all weekend so I agree. We get dressed, I go outside to jump the car, it starts, I forgot something inside, while Pooka and I are inside she make a bad decision, I go outside, turn the car off, no pool or cookout for Pooka. We deal with the issue, she takes a nap, I call Saturn to tell her we are not coming. Cool. Looking back I am glad I didn't go cuz knowing me I would not have came home in time to finish stuff like my homework that I was also procrastinating on this weekend. So I take care of all that and go to bed.
Now I am at work!
That's the short version of my weekend! I'll get to yours soon. :-)
