Wow, I've been really busy and very neglectful of my blogging. Does anyone even read this anymore??
So, my birthday was Monday. Fun times! Saturday night my dear friends attempted to have a surprise party for me but failed............. at least at the surprise part. But the party worked out well and Jonah even joined us..... oh boy.
Sunday morning we had family brunch at R and V's. Gotta love those brunches!!! What will we do as the Zacks's desert us one by one and move to the Holy Land where they can eat Bonkers Bagels at their brunches?
Sunday afternoon was filled with shopping at Great Lakes with the sisters and Shauli. :) He did well. Hardly (if any) complaints. And he EVEN returned Madden '06 which he pretended to buy me for a birthday present. My real present will take a couple weeks to arrive. Hmm....I really wonder what it is. I don't have a CLUE!!
My mom sent me some money to use for something FUN and not bills. It's good she designated that because knowing me I would deposit it in the checking account thinking I would "use it later" and forget about it and use it for bills. So now I have to choose something fun. I think I am deciding between two things. Or maybe getting both and adding a little of my own money. There is a really cool piece of artwork that I have been looking at in a Judaica catalogue for months. It is Pressed Wildflowers of Israel in a cool blue frame. The picture is above which I am sure you have realized by now.
OR I am thinking of getting a massage which I could REALLY REALLY REALLY use. But does anyone know of a good masseuse around here? Female, please. Let me know because I don't really know how to find one.
Ok, so enough about presents. :)
Sunday evening we had a BBQ again at R and V's so that was fun and we got to hang out with the Bostons Zacks's some more (minus one). And that was that.
Monday was my actual birthday -woohoo - and I worked from 12 to 6 - not so woohoo. But after that Shu and I got a quick BKC dinner (not that ordering from there is ever quick but we like the food so we deal with it). My sis-in-law (G-d bless her) came over to babysit for Jonah and off we went to the Lions/Rams football game. Now first of all, a shout out to Shu's cousin Gabi for hooking us up with tickets!! That was awesome because we tried to get some but weren't able to and he pulled through at the last minute. That was great! I had never been to a football game and this is the only time the Lions are playing the Rams this season (well, preseason) so I pulled out my St. Louis pride (no, I don't even have a Rams T-shirt to wear) and headed off to the game.Parking was ridiculous near the stadium, $30 -$40!! So we drove a little further and found a $10 lot. Woohoo!! Not that we spent anything on the tickets but why pay the extra $20-$30 if you don't need to. The game was great. Well, for me and the 4 other Rams fans. :) For the Lions fans, not so pretty. The stadium was maybe half full at half time and practically empty by the end of the 3rd quarter. It was the game that WOULD NOT end. But I was enjoying because I just love the whole experiance of being at the game. I love people watching and player watching and trying to get on camera (next time I should bring a sign but there is no way Shu would sit with me then!!) Well, it finally ended and we headed out and passed by the Rams bus. So we waited around to see some players and they did come out and come over to us but it was really to see their family and friends and you couldn't even tell who they were. They were the Big Guys but not all were so big. So I guess we saw 2 or 3 superstars but didn't really realize until they were about to get on the bus. I was getting "star struck" but thanks to Shu we finally left. :) Kudos to him for putting up with me!!! I wonder though, if I get so bad with players I don't even know in a game I don't care too much about - what would happen if I met Tayshaun Prince (WOOHOO) of the Pistons. I don't even know!!!!! But it would definitly involved picture taking and perhaps some fainting. JUST KIDDING, I am NOT that bad......I think. Can anyone out there hook me up with a meeting and we'll see????
Well, Shu should be proud of me. Many women would go gaga over Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt but I go for the DETROIT basketball player!!!!! Go figure. Sean Connery might beat out Tayshaun though.
So, we finally made it home to a tired looking Shev who somehow managed to get our kid to bed at a normal hour. She has to come over more often - HINT HINT HINT!!!!
And that was my birthday.
Jonah's is coming up on Thursday so I will keep you posted.........................
