One of "those" weekends

When my alarm went off at 5:15 a.m. this morning, I hit snooze five times. This is partly because I didn't want to get up and partly because I couldn't believe it was Monday already. I'm left struggling to remember what it was exactly I did this weekend and wondering how on earth it flew by so quickly. As far as weekends go, it was a solid showing.

We spent time catching up with friends over beer and dinner. We helped out on the farm and went shopping at Target (actually one of us did one and the other did the other--can you guess who did what?) and drank lots of coffee. We went swimming in my in-law's pond, providing at least momentary relief from the 90-degree-plus sweltering heat, which felt like over 100 with the awful Ohio humidity. We drank summer ale on the front porch and watched classic movies on AMC: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Pulp Fiction.

Note to self: Pulp Fiction on television is a shell of its former self; buy the original. Another note to myself: how on earth did you manage to completely forget the unforgettable "Pawn shop cellar scene" in said movie? Seriously.

Most notably, my husband received an "A" on his final class of grad school and is, after two years, finished with his Master's degree. We celebrated with Dairy Queen blizzards and will soon crack open a premium beer bottled in a fancy champagne bottle we purchased on our recent trip to upstate New York. Because every good celebration should in involve champagne bottles, dogs and 8.5% ABV beer.

Yeah, that scene is quite disturbing, eh? I had forgotten it was in there too, but we watched it about a month back I was shocked again.

Congrats to hubby on finishing his Master's!
