Most satisfying moment of my weekend...
The sight of my closet after I cleared the floor of outfits that didn't make the cut and lined all the shoes up neatly.  It was a complete disaster when I started so this was no small feat.

Most annoying moment of my weekend...
Looking up from my laptop while the Super Bowl was on last night just in time to catch a Skechers commercial starring Kim Kardashian in which she appeared to be seducing her personal trainer.  What she was actually doing was giving him his walking papers since she now had the new butt toning Skechers and all. Because who needs to work out when you can just walk around struttin' your stuff and toning your junk in a pair of butt ugly shoes?!!  

Most indulgent moment of my weekend...
Watching four straight hours of  Breaking Bad episodes with Charlie.  I cannot get enough of this show. LOVE it!

Most baffling moment of my weekend...
Checking my blog stats to see that someone landed here by searching "dachshund tattoos".  Umm? Okay, it's no secret I love the little dachsies but DACHSHUND TATTOOS?!  I.don' and sure as heck don't recall blogging about one involving a dachshund.  Hmm... Interesting.

Most frustrating moment of my weekend...
Waiting until Saturday to finally go grocery shopping, taking both boys with me and spending an hour fighting the Super Bowl crowd and searching high and low for all the ingredients to make white turkey chili for our chili cook off at church.  Just FYI, the canned green chile peppers are located with the taco fixings, not with the chili fixings.

Most disappointing moment of my weekend...
Turning the t.v. on yesterday afternoon to find a special about Maya Angelou on OWN and realizing that I had missed the first 45 minutes of it.  Shoot!  I'm awed by her so I would have loved to have seen the whole thing.  

Most profound moment of my weekend...
Listening to Maya Angelou talk for 15 minutes.  Everything about her just exudes wisdom to me.  This is what she had to say about love when she was talking about her mother...

"I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn't just hold—that's ego. Love liberates. It doesn't bind. Love says, 'I love you. I love you if you're in China. I love you if you're across town. I love you if you're in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I'd like to have your arms around me. I'd like to hear your voice in my ear. But that's not possible now, so I love you. Go.'"



  1. Sounds like a busy weekend. My most satisfying moment is tied....
    Being done with Varsity basketball until next November. Or, going to sleep at 6:30 on Saturday night and waking at normal time on Sunday.

  2. I admit that Maya Angelou is a woman of substance. Everything she says is nothing less than profound.

  3. White turkey chili? Sounds to share the recipe?

    :-) I too love Maya Angelou!

  4. I did some closet purging this weekend, too. I worked on the boys' rooms. Mine are next.

    Maya Angelou is very inspiring. Hopefully, that will air again. I'd like to watch it, too.

  5. Oh, I could have told you about the green chili. Here in NM we put it on EVERYTHING. Literally. EVERYTHING.
    I will have to check out this Maya Angelou. Sounds like a great lady.
