My Weekend

I had a real whirlwind of a weekend and all the excitement began on Thursday night. I was minding my own business when my cell phone began ringing out of control. Apparently our lacrosse coach (who was fired on Thursday morning) sent out an email to the entire team and he had some very nasty personal attacks on myself and my son. He also personally attacked 2 other mom's on the team. I, however, earned the top spot! The worst part is that he sent this not only to all the parents but also to all the players. Just one more instance showing his level of immaturity and pettiness. Lest you think this was the highlight of the weekend it was NOT. My weekend got better and better.

Friday I took off work and went to a wholesale warehouse for quilt supplies with LTW. There she is standing with our cart. We were just a little naughty, not as bad as last time though. We did some preordering and then bought a few more things . I have not had time to take the requisite photos yet but I will try to do so soon. Annemiek, I know you and Lotte will love that I bought 2 bolts of fabric! I plan on selling what I don't need though. My friend Cori (Crazy Quilt Girl) was supposed to go along but her DS got ill and she had to stay home. Next time Cori! We really need no excuse to return!!

On Saturday morning (1am to be exact) DD2 came home from the Galapagos Islands with lots of stories and photos. Her BF came over on Sat am and we spend a long time looking at all the pictures, in fact we only got half way through them. Her wet things were a little smelly so lots of laundry ensued. It was so nice to have her back home. I really, really missed her while she was away!

Sunday evening DS GRADUATED from High School. Here he is afterwards with his sisters.
Shelby, Thadd and Kelsey. Awe aren't they cute??
MY DH posing with the graduate.
DS with his BFF Chris. We are so thankful they both stuck it out and have graduated!!
Oh and just when you think the fun must be ending because it is not the weekend, you would be WRONG! DH got up at the butt crack of dawn to drive DD1 to the airport as she is going to visit a friend in CA for 3 weeks. That trip is a whole post in itself and I don't have any more time to chat. More later...

Wow. That lacrosse coach is really something. It just never ends with him, does it? Congrats to DS! And the Galapagos! What fun.

Congratulations to your DS.

You must be so pleased, even with the laundry, to have your daughter back home again.
As for the coach. Just ignore him. he's shown himself up and I'm a true believer in what you give out comes back to haunt you.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I am breathing hard reading of all your activities! 8-))) Good luck with the coach issue. I've decided that "irritating people" are used to being that way, and do not think anything of it. They are probably used to being yelled at, sworn at, etc, because they irritate normal people all the time.

You have a wonderful looking family Pam!! Your son looks like a real character LOL....what's with the cigar...bad boy!!!

Ignore the coach...everyone knows better.

No wonder the coach got fired! Goodbye and good riddance if you ask me!!
Congrats to your DS! I liked the pic with his dad: funny face ánd the cigar *lol* and i'm happy for you that DD is home safe and sound.
Ofcourse I noticed the bolts before reading the text :P...I love that shoppingcart!

Allie said...

Good thing the guy got fired. And that's all I'm sayin'.
Congratulations to the graduate!!! Woo hoo! Yes, they are all adorable!

Congratulations to the graduate and his family! Shame on that ex-coach for spreading unkind words about you to the rest of the team. I guess he didn't have the backbone to speak to you face to face? Thanks for the cat hair remover recommendation. Boy, can I use that! There's no way I keep up with the hairballs around here, but maybe that will help. That warehouse looks like an adventure, too. It was good to see LTW and put a face to the name.
