The Weekend. In list form. It's the best I can do.

So, it's Monday morning and time for the weekend recap. We're an exciting bunch here at our house, so no need to get a snack while reading this post.

1. Saturday morning Hubs and daughter ran in a "run" which is different from a "race." This is good because my daughter would have beaten Hubs in race. Since it was a "run" they ran together, side by side. I could segue into an analogy of family bonding, but it's Monday morning.

Notice who did NOT run? The only time I run is when something is chasing me.

2. The rest of Saturday was spent working in the yard, planting bedding plants, edging. Thank goodness we have sprinklers or the poor little petunias may die. I am terrible with plants. If something doesn't cry, whine, or meow, I forget to feed it. Sad, but true.

3. Horseback riding. Not me. Daughter. She is learning with a friend and loves it. I am learning with her and love it. I'm not riding, but I have to know all there is to know about saddles and bridles and these really heavy things called hooves that can hit you in the leg or the head or whatever is in the way because you didn't listen to the teacher.

I want to listen to the teacher. I like my cranium.

4. Which leads me to a quote I've been saying lately. I've managed to work it into several conversations and it is starting to become my Seinfeld "Hellooooo."

Know where this quote is from?

"He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight on his huge pillow."

Leave the answer in the comments.

Sorry, no prize. This is a low budget blog.

I do have a friend who kind of knows Amy Grant. Oh, Linda. Will you make me cool?

Edited to add: Kudos to TexasRed for being the first correct commenter on my quirky quote. The quote is from "So I Married An Axe Murderer."

Here's the clip, also known as the
Heid Speech, which is better than Hate Speech.

We're really exciting over at our house, too. The weather is x-naying any of my bedding out plans. And I am so with you on the running thing.

Oh, I can't believe I couldn't remember that...
"Heed" "Sputnick" and other degrading terms of love about the poor boys large head. I love that movie too!

I only run when chased, too. I'm jealous of everyone who can actually plant this early. In Michigan, where I live, it freezed last night- again- in May, yes.
Thus the stocking cap I am wearing on Sat. at Jimmy John's- see my latest post.

Come see me Not New York- I'm new.

Have not seen the movie but LOVE lists. Especially when they are mine and all crossed off.

Yup... So I Married an Axe
Murderer... regarding the kid with a head so big "It's got it's own weather system."

With you on the running. But I'll go one better, I wouldn't run even if I were being chased with a knife, cuz I figure, they're going to catch me anyway, why should I be bleeding AND out of breath. Seems I should save my energy.
