So, yes... Hubby is home! He is all officially trained and even has a patch for his uniform that says so! It was actually very informative and a great experience. :-D
To celebrate we went to dinner with the kids at Stewart's Drive-In. I don't know if you all know of Stewart's Root Beer, but it is yummy, and they still have restaurants that you drive up to and get car service. You put on your headlights, and the waitress gets your order. You are served in your car, as the trays hook onto the window!
The kids love it! The food is good, and it is just fun! In the 1950's the waitresses used to be on roller skates! Can you imagine? The weather was gorgeous and it was the perfect family treat!!!
Somehow, I missed actually doing entries the last two days since they were so busy. Although, this kind of counts as Sunday, since I haven't been to bed yet!
I will fill everyone in more tomorrow!
I want to do Russ' music meme! He actually got it from Cin, but I can't link you to her blog as she is private.
Here is Russ' blog link: Inner and Outer Demons
Here is the meme/quiz/questionnaire thingy:
A bit of song association...I'm going to give you a some words and then you tell us what song best describes them.
The weather: "It's Raining Men", The Weather Girls (Why? Because I am an 80's chick, of course!) But after this glorious weekend we just had how about "It's a Sunshine Day" by The Brady Brunch, heh hehheh... do remember that catchy tune?
Your state of mind: "Pressure" by Billy Joel and "Don't Worry Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin, enough said of that! LOL
Cheese: I think of Brie and France, so that led me to "Lady Marmalade" by Patti LaBelle, the original!
Wine: "Red Red Wine" by UB40, song by a redhead who sounds like a Jamaican Islander, also an 80's song. lol
Sports: "Centerfield" by John Fogerty, because it is baseball season around this house!! And, "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen, too. (Again, 80's and NJ... lol)
Spring: "Over the Hills and Far Away" by Led Zeppelin and "Walking on the Sun" by Smashmouth. The Led Zep brings me back... way back...
Road Trip: Oh this is a fun one!!! All and any of BonJovi and Def Leppard, back when I was in my late teens and 20's and now!!! The kids love to listen to the greatest hits cds of both!! lol Also, the Eagles Greatest hits, which is two cds in and of itself. Great for the road!
Radio: "On the Radio", Donna Summer (Russ said that was 'gayness', but I thought it, too!) I also remember J Geils Band "Centerfold" while laying out at the town pool one year in high school! That catchy sing songy riff... 'Na na na na nanaana nanna'
Yawn: "I Don't Know Why" or any of Norah Jones. Sorry, she puts me to sleep!!! lol
Your favorite movie: This was easy for two of my favorite movies. "As Time Goes By" for Casablanca, my favorite version being the kick ass version by Frank Sinatra. Awesome. And, for Moonstruck, "That's Amore" by Dean Martin, which is also on the fab soundtrack for that film!
TV: "Who Are You?" by the Who, the theme for the original CSI, which is my favorite. CSI Miami has "Baba O'Reilly" and CSI NY has "Won't Get Fooled Again" both, also by The Who.
That was fun... Copy and paste and play along if you want! I'll be back tomorrow! (actually, later today... duh... lol)
Russ... remember your answer to spring??? Take a look at my graphic under my name... it is just for you, my sweet friend.
