What the Weekend

It's Monday and I got to work super early! With my parents out of town I had to take the trash and recycling to the curb. I also woke up early without an alarm because I was restless all night. It didn't help that a palmetto aka a giant roach woke me up yesterday morning early.

That's right - I felt something in my hand, half asleep but I've been known to fall alseep with a tissue so I tried to make a fist. Well, what was in my hand scurried/moved and I screamed and jumped out of bed! It landed right below where I assume my hand was hanging off the bed and after trying to squish it, the thing got away. A few minutes later I heard it across the room and I'd already grabbed the hair spray to spray him with so I managed a back and forth game of him trying to hide and then I would hit him with the hair spray. Whew! *wipes brow*

Friday night, I did finish a really cute book that was a little dated maybe? I mean I lived in the midwest small rural town and I didn't feel like I was living in the old west. Know what I mean. If that's something that would bother you this book might not be for you.

Synopsis: All his life Tate McCullom has been taught to be responsible, and he is the very model of what a respectable man should be. Until the night he gets drunk and sleeps with a woman he barely knows.

Now, six weeks later, she's pregnant, alone, and broke. Once again, Tate must take responsibility for his actions, and makes plans to marry his child's mother. There's only one problem...he has to tell his fiancée.

Abby Grayson hasn't had an easy life. As the daughter of the town whore, people either avoid her or think she's like her mother. For Abby, it's a struggle just to fill her belly and keep a roof over her head.

Loneliness and a secret yearning for this man she thought she'd never have led her to spend the night with Tate. But the last thing she needs is a baby when she can barely take care of herself. Desperate, but too proud to ask for help, she finally agrees to accept a job from Tate - the job of being his wife. Now she has almost everything she's ever dreamed of.

The rest of the weekend consisted of quite a bit of this.

I did manage to get a night out with some friends at a beer place that also had Sangria so I was super happy!!

I also got a little bit of shopping in for a baby shower I'll be going to in a few weeks.
