So how was everyone's weekend? Do anything fun/interesting?

The more I try not to do stuff the busier I get. :shock:

Friday was an adventure.. kind of funny now, but at the time it made me panic. Thursday night driving home from work my check engine light came on.. it's never come on before, and I'm car stupid so to me that's a time to panic. I didn't freak out to much at the time because I had just gotten gas and if you don't put the gas cap on just right it causes all sorts of lights to go on. Fast forward to Friday morning, I needed to run a few errands.. the light goes on. Ugh! Checked the gas cap, it was on right. So then I start to panic. Is it something major? Is it something minor? Oi. My son offers to look under the hood.. so there we are, me and my boy (he's 11 and not much into cars.. if it were a train I would've trusted him more) looking under the hood. The funny part? I just recently figured out how to open the hood of my car.. and I'm looking at the engine like I know what the heck I'm looking at. Heh. Anyway to make a long story short, the goofus that changed the oil on my car and put in a new air filter flubbed the air fliter and the thingymajig that holds it didn't close right. Which brings me to my what the heck moment of the week.. if cars are smart enough to know when there is a problem, why aren't they smart enough to know when the problem is fixed? How come someone has to actually turn off the check engine light?! Thats kinda scary... how do you know if the problem has been fixed?!

Saturday I spent the day running errands, washing dogs, washing cars, planting trees.. and taking care of a baby rabbit. I always knew rabbits burrowed in the ground.. but I didn't know the holes they made were like the size of a vole or ground squirrel hole! I watered some of the trees I had just planted and this thing pops out of the ground, it startled me.. I hate things popping out of the ground. :) It was this itty bitty baby bunny (I have pictures.. just have to download them). Of course my mom and middle sibling decide to pet this rabbit. *sigh* We kept an eye on it checking every hour to see if it had gone into it's hole.. when it hadn't after about 5 hours it was decided that we couldn't leave the poor little bunny out in the cold.. and they bought it in the house. I was all for leaving the thing alone and it'd go back in it's hole.. but what do I know. Anyway, the bunny did what wild bunnies will do when people touch them and bring them in a house.. freaked out. I ended up having to take it outside when everyone went to bed. I'm going to assume that it went back in it's hole. This is another what the heck moment.. did you know vets in hillbilly areas won't take care of wild animals?! Maybe I just got ahold of a grumpy vet or something.. but back in San Diego the vet I took my critters too would take care of wild animals if people bought them in.

Sunday was pretty uneventful. Made oatmeal cookies (yum!) and vegged for the most part...when the phone wasn't ringing off the hook and when the kids would leave me alone. Heh. I think the kids have this sensor that tells them when I get a new cd and want to listen to it.. thats the time they have all sorts of problems. I did the motherly thing though and set them in front of the tv for a couple hours. :D

Yesterday we went to something called "Territory days" here in the springs. It was pretty interesting. I like how they always have some sort of historical re-enactment (my cousin and her husband do those!) and people dressed in period costumes and such.. it makes things more interesting. Oi.. if I never see another cotton candy, funnel cake, candied apple, or fudge I will be ok with that! Bleh.. I'm getting to old for sugar fixes. :)

Good lord.. that turned into a book. :D

Here's the little bunny (I think he ended up being named Snowball after the fat rabbit we rescued in San Diego).

Yeah the bunny is kind of cute. :)

Aww.. you're popular! :) Speaking of phones.. I read something that said two out of every five kids 8-18yrs of age have a cell phone.. do you have one? I'm just being nosey cause all the kids I know don't have one. :)

Woo-hoo! Reading rocks. What book are you reading?

Summer break. Bah.. when I went to school I never got much of a summer break! Course that could be due to the fact that I goofed off most the school year and had to go to summer school every year. :D

Yea, I have a cellie. It's the cheapest thing you can get from Wal-Mart, though. My mom won't let me buy anything cool even if I have the money. :(

I'm reading The Mark, the eighth book in the Left Behind series.

If it's just supposed to be for emergencies it doesn't need to be expensive as long as it works right? I thought about getting a phone for my son when he was in school.. for emergencies, but school didn't agree with him. If I got him a phone I probably would've just added a line to my plan and gotten him a fairly cheap phone. :)

Hrm.. I have to read that series still. I'm working on the latest Cat Who book right now. :)

I don't know what it is for, really. I just text message people with it mostly. We live so far out from no where, I don't get any signal out here anyways. If there was an emergency at my house, I could not call my mom or anyone because we have a long distance block on our phone, and no cell phones work out here. lol

Heh.. sounds like an emergency phone then. :D As long as the phone with the block on it can call 911 or someone who can call your mom that works. Back when I was growing up we didn't have long distance blocked on our phone.. when one bill came in for $300+ and the one after that for over $500 they thought about putting one on but got us girls our own phone line without long distance on it.

Hrm.. I'm still trying to figure out how to text message with my phone. Seems like it should be easy enough. I just figured out how to do pictures with it not to long ago. :D Pfft.. my phone is too high tech for me. Eep.
