Monday Meh.

How was your weekend? Mine? It was rainy but that didn't stop Muffin and I from getting out. Poor child, I know it's wet and ugly but trust me - if we don't get out there and do something one of us is going to wind up at the loony farm. Probably not you.

So we went to the Aquarium on Saturday and I was flat out disappointed. I dunno - I guess I thought that the Virginia Beach Aquarium would be pretty spectacular. I mean, it's huge! But, no. The size is deceptive because of the IMAX theater housed within. Ahhhh... Also, I'd say that at least 1/3 if not 1/2 of the place was under construction for some new exhibits. Did that stop them from charging full price? Of course not! Thieves. To console myself on the rip-off I took Muffin out to Mexican and that brightened our spirits considerably.

On Sunday we went to get my hair done. In the past, my friend Mrs. E. would come as well and we would have a little "girl's day." We love our hairdresser and she loves us so it's always a good time. We haven't been able to do the girl's day thing lately because she has a baby and her husband is deployed and therefore unavailable for babysitting.

Since Muffin would be tagging along anyway, I invited Mrs. E. to come too and volunteered to hold the baby while she was getting her hair done. I envisioned holding a lovely little boy, perhaps reading a book, perhaps playing the tickle game and all going smoothly. Things didn't turn out exactly the way I planned - but he was still a lovely little boy. Or, perhaps I should say bear cub. Because he was a solid, wiggly ball of "I want to get down" topped with pretty blue eyes and blond hair. Despite the fact that he was not permitted to crawl on the salon floor - he was very good natured and plum wore me out.

I didn't take any pictures and I've been pretty lame about keeping up with my "Sunday Scrapbook" posts. I'll have to get back to that soon. Another weekend gone, another week ahead. It's Monday. Meh.

We're taking a road trip this weekend to a zoo and I'm really hoping it's not a let down. That's bs that they'd charge the full rate when it's not "fully" open.

And what is it about Mexican food that makes things better? Love it!

"Because he was a solid, wiggly ball of "I want to get down" topped with pretty blue eyes and blond hair" - oh my goodness, did someone steal my son and lend him to you this weekend? That describes him to a T.

Glad you had a lovely Mexican.

Our weekend was rainy as well, blah! But hey, a weekend filled with good Mexican food and a haircut with a friend can never be bad! :-)
