Getting Caught Up


November 10, 2011 by Marj Hatzell

So!  After yesterday’s word vomit fest, I thought I’d get you caught up on what’s happening in my life.

First, there was THE WEEKEND. The Annual Eat and Sleep Weekend. It was glorious. But you know that.

We visited an arboretum. There was a stone thing. It was like someone knocked down Stonehenge. It was a sundial, and a pretty nifty one:

Stonehenge. Sort of.

How lucky are we to be driving around doing nothing and find a JEEP OFF ROAD EVENT?  And they had dozens of awesome jeeps. I miss my jeep. You can read about that here. In the meanwhile, COME TO MOMMA:

I love you and I just met you.

We drove to Pittsburgh for the day from State College. Just because. It’s pretty there:

Such a nice little town. If you squint you can see the bajillion people going to the football game.

Then, we came home on The Guy I Live With’s Birthday. And he bought me a car. For his birthday:

He bought me a pretty thing for my birthday. It's like driving the space shuttle. So many buttons, so little time (and I totally killed the battery playing with the buttons before we even finished signing the paperwork and they had to jump my battery. AWKWARD).

The Guy I Live With totally didn’t want to have a party or anything so I had to cancel what little I had planned and pretend he TOTALLY WASN’T TURNING FORTY and TELL NO ONE. And…dammit. Screw it. We had pie. And since I had the wrong number candles, it looked like this:

60-20 is forty, for those of you not good at math. Shaddup, I didn't have a FOUR candle.

And I managed to get a picture of 3/4ths of DG’s family. For the fourtieth birthday that totally wasn’t happening:

Best picture I've gotten in a few years. No really.

Not a bad couple of days, huh?

    I’m not good at telling cars from pictures or even when I pass them on the road – but your’s sure looks like my new one. 6 weeks ago I got a 2011 Honda Odyssey (traded in my 2002 w/ 179K miles). I LOVE all the gadgets!

    • As a matter of fact, it’s a 2012. We went to drive a left-over and the rates were better for a 2012 (and the payments were about the same) so 2012 it is! And it’s the first time in my life I got to say HEY I WANT THAT COLOR or I WANT THIS OPTION HERE. Sweeeet.

    I love your candle creativity!

  3. You’re so much nicer than I was about the 40th. I even put a sign in the yard and a banner on the house. Never mind that he has 8 years to plot his revenge. I had my fun while it lasted.

  4. […] magical birthday will be replaced by magical eat-and-sleep weekend starting on Friday. Stay […]
