Weekend Warrior - the Long One

Sometimes life just calls for a long weekend.  This time around it was due to some business that had to get taken care of and hopes of going up north.   My hopes of going up north were dashed due to actually ditching the Durango during the lovely ice storm that occurred on Monday.  No major damage yet enough that there was no way it was going up north plus a forecast of freezing rain there, yeah nope.
Thursday was spent getting my everyday car in for a recall, a teeth cleaning, and my son his passport.  Pretty uneventful except for the realization of the number of individuals that can not read instructions.   When we stepped to the counter at the post office, the woman was relieved as we had all the information plus more with everything filled out in the correct color ink.   Instructions are there for a reason, please read them.
Friday found my hubbie and I venturing to Fond du Lac to get the house shopping done.  On a normal day I would just go to our local Shopko Hometown.  This day though it was a Target trip.  Needless to say it wasn't cheap....darn you Target for having too many cute things.   And afterwards we had lunch at new to us restaurant.  We love to try new places.  Ala Roma it was based on a recommendation from his boss.  It was delicious.
Friday night we were homebodies, watching movies. 
Saturday was a day of let's get some stuff done around here.  The weather outside was warming up where the snow/ice was melting a bit. I decided to use this chance to clean up the dog shit in the yard, inevitably yet has to be done. 
Also spent the day attempting to carry out a little experiment. You see, we broke some of the ice to help the water flow better to the drain.  Well now the water did not seem to be going down much.  Solution = put a rubber ducky in the water and see if it goes anywhere.

And the results:  The duck moved slightly.  The water did go down.  Not sure if this was a win or not.

Saturday evening, the hubbie and I hit the bowling alley for some pizza.  Then it was home to watch the Indiana Jones movies.  We made it part way into the third one before we were falling asleep.  Still need to finish or watch that one again, I have never seen it.

Sunday was just a basic day in our little cul de sac....laundry, food prep, and getting ready for the week.

And that is how the weekend went....
