Girlfriends, Good Times, and....

So my weekend that I was all excited about has come and gone. It was fun, just as I expected it to be.

Saturday the Hubs and I took the kids some family's house and they played for a while, and then we left and headed about an hour away from our house to Richmond, Texas to go watch a friends daughter play softball. This girl is an awesome ball player.

After the ball game we headed back home and decided to stop and eat. I don't know about anybody else, but deciding where to eat is always a big ordeal. It has pissed me off to the point of me saying "fuck it, everybody can find their own food at the house" and not stopping anywhere. Well, we decided to go to Hooters. I love Hooters, and the kids have never been and they have been wanting to go, so why not? Well, Dawson, being almost 13 was beyond excited when we walked in. I wish I would have pulled my phone and took a picture of him because it was quite funny, the shit eatin' grin he had on his face. I just busted out laughing.

Sunday was the day that I was most excited for. I was going to see some old friends from school and I could not wait. I told the Hubs that I would take Keigan with me and he insisted that he keep both kids and take them to do something fun and let me go hangout with my girlfriends. Yay! He is such a great man. They (Bob and the kids) took off and went to IKEA, and then Dave & Busters, which the kids have never been there either. I took off and went to my friends parents house. It was just like the old days, we sat around and talked, and laughed and ate some really good food that Becky's mom made for us. A couple of us stayed and talked and laughed until 12:30 in the morning. Now I can't wait for Becky to get to Japan and start writing and posting pictures. I am so excited for her.

I got home from my gathering about 12:45 or so and then I laid in the bed watching television until about 2:30 or so and had to get back up at 5:30 to get Dawson up so he could get ready to go to the Houston Texans Training Camp-Youth Day. He left about 10 minutes after 6 and fell back to sleep and then went and colored my hair, and highlighted a friends hair. Now I am home.

Apparently sometime over the weekend I missed some big ordeal with Chick-fil-A and so I asked what the heck the deal was, on FaceBook. Maybe that was a mistake. lol. So far I have managed to keep a war from starting among the people commenting. For those of you who may not know, I guess the CEO of Chick-fil-A said that he supports traditional marriage and of course the set the gay and lesbian communities in an uproar. I have not asked my best friend (Google) yet what exactly was said, but it seems that a lot of people have very different opinions as to what was said, and what, if any, rights, gay and lesbians should have.

My thoughts on the matter...everybody is entitled to their own opinion, and I personally think that they should have the same rights as "traditional" people. Times have changed. Religion has been pulled out of just about everything that is public, so why the hell should anybody care what someones sexual preference is? I have several gay and lesbian friends. They are no different than me. They either work, or stay home and take care of the house, some of them even have kids, so they take care of their kids. They pay their bills, they bleed the same color that I do, and the love most of them share is a love like you have never seen.
I could go on, and I probably will in a later blog, but right now I have an 8 year old who is being very needy, and for some reason, everybody always wants to eat dinner in the house, so I need to cook.


  1. And what does chicken have to do with it anyway? I'm so glad the weekend went well.

  2. I'm glad you had a good weekend :) It is always nice to spend good quality time with your friends!!

    And as for the Chic-fil-a thing......It just might be easier to Google it LoL The biggest thing about the whole uproar (that I understand anyhow) is that many communities are banning new Chic-fil-a restaurants to be built in their cities because of their (the chain-owner's) public stance against marriage equality. I know that there is more to it than that but that is the hot button on my newsfeed with this restaurant anyhow....This is a topic I could rant about for days on :D

  3. Yay for fun weekends!! I miss having those LOL.

    And yea... ask the owner of a restaurant that is closed on Sundays for religious reasons what his view is on same-sex marriage and then be shocked by the answer. Srsly? Who cares! So sick of the news going on about it like this guy is someone really important. I could care less what his opinion is. Incidentally- they have awesome sweet tea and their chicken salad sammies are NOM! lol

  4. Glad you explained that for me, I somehow missed the whole bruhaha too. I too am not getting the chicken connection but then I don't get why anyone get's upset over gays and lesbians either. I am more worried about the missing children and Jeffrey Dahmer's of this world and something tells me God is too.
    Glad you had a good time with your friend!

  5. About them being closed on Sundays....I have noticed that their sign says they are closed on Sundays, but so many of them that I see are always open and very busy. Strange. Oh well, I don't give a shit. That is the CEO's opinion, and I think I have eaten at a Chick-fil-A maybe twice in my life, but if I get the urge to eat there again, I will. His beliefs have nothing to do with chicken. lol People just take shit out of context and make it into something that is not.
