Memorial Weekend!

I feel like it's been so long since I've posted...and it has! I started work last week and oh. my. gosh. It was so hard getting into "12 hour shift" mode. I had a good first week, but was so exhausted when I got home that I ate dinner and went to bed! I guess I can't say much about the patients I've had in the ICU because of HIPAA, but just know that they have been very interesting! This week I work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. It will be 3 really long days, but I'll have 4 great, relaxing days off! And this coming weekend, I'm going to try to get David to Lowe's so we can start looking at paint colors! Wish me luck on that one, haha! ;)

This past weekend though, was David's grandfather's birthday! His family had a birthday bash on Satuday and on Sunday the whole family went to a Braves game! On the way Saturday, I found a kitten on the side of the road. He was so little and lonely and came right to me when I went to get him out of harms way. I wanted to keep him so much, but didn't know how Marley would react and it just wasn't the right time for one. He's going to a humane society and being so small, I'm sure he will be adopted in no time! And David has already assured me that once we are together for good we can get a kitty! :)

On Sunday, we met the family at the Varsity in Atlanta for lunch. The Braves are my team through and through--even through all the down years they've had! So needless to say, I had a great time at the game. They played the Pittsburgh Pirates and won 5-2. And they won thanks to this guy:

Chipper Jones has been one of my favorite players since I was a little girl! (Along with Greg Maddux, Javy Lopez, Andruw Jones, and John Smoltz...) The game was tied and Bobby Cox put him in to pinch hit...and he brought in the "winning" run! It was great!

Here we are at the game! That's David's cousin Van in the background... he thinks he's a character!

We came back home today to do laundry and get ready for our work week. AND I also got my baby boy back! He spent the week at his grandma's since mom and dad went out of town for the weekend. I missed that boy way too much and I'm so glad to have him back:) I've got to go finish getting everything ready, but then I'm getting updated on what you all have been up to this weekend!
