Thank God it's finally Saturday...

It's been a really long week, so thank goodness the weekend is finally here! For one thing, we were short staffed at the office and it was super busy. Also, Joe left for a business trip on Monday morning and just got home Thursday night.

With Joe out of town, I was on official doggie duty (no pun intended), which means waking up at the crack of dawn to feed and walk the girls and somehow still making it to work by 7am! Then, feeding them and walking them in the evening after work and then collapsing on the couch. How in the world am I going to handle a baby if taking care of my furbabies solo for the week got me exhausted?? Needless to say, I really missed my hubby!!

When Joe's flight landed and he called me on the way home one of the first things out of his mouth was "guess who was on my flight, sitting right in front of me?" So, I'm thinking celebrity and trying to guess who would be on a flight from Ohio to Phx. It turned out to be a women with her adopted daughter from China. I think it was so sweet that Joe was excited about that. The little girl was 4 years old (adopted 3 yrs ago) and from the Hunan province. Joe said she was happy, very bright and beautiful.

Well, tonight Nancy & Brian are throwing a referral party for Kim & Scott. They just got referred twin girls with this last batch. I can't wait to see their actual referral packet and photos.

I know a couple of my Blogville buddies live in Ohio. Joe was in Columbus and said the changing of the leaves was just beautiful. We don't get to enjoy that kind of thing here in Phoenix. He also said it's a total college town and Ohio State rules...I guess people go as far as to have huge, blow-up mascots on their lawns. Ok, Robin, fess up...do you have a mascot on your lawn?? ;)

Joe was in Columbus? Oh darn. I wish you could've come with him. We could've totally gotten together and had the other Ohio girls come too! Not to be bossy, but if there's ever a next time, try and come with him! That would be a blast!

Oh, as an Ohio State alumni, I totally love that he noticed how we love our team!

Yup, us Buckeyes are freaky with the blow-up lawn ornaments. I don't have one but I won't say there will never be one in my future ;0)

PS - He's right. The leaves ARE beautiful right now. Wanna come rake 'em up ? ;0)

We live near Cleveland and not Columbus, but we've been known to have a huge, inflatable Brutus on our front yard once in a while! Buckeye fans are Die-hards, that's for sure!

Our neighbor blows up a Brutus for his front lawn (well, ok, desert landscaping) every time there's a game. Now, if only people were that into hockey!!

Robin said...

LOL.. NO.. I do not have a giant blow up Brutus the Buckeye on my lawn but I do fly and Ohio State flag every Saturday and I am always in Ohio State gear - jersey, buckeye necklace etc. :-)
GO BUCKS!!!
