Saturday goes by so fast...

This Saturday began with waking Mason up at 6:50 so that he wouldn't feel rushed getting ready for his first JV Scrimmage. We drove over to Athens to the AHS/TVCC football field for a scrimmage vs. Kemp. What fun!? Well anyway, Mason actually seemed to enjoy it, I even saw him smiling a few times. That is always nice to see on a teenaged boy. He is so handsome when he smiles. Afterwards, we headed over to the Woolverton's to help celebrate Jake's birthday. We had some quick swimming, a hot dog, cake and ice cream. Then the day really got long. I left my purse at their house. When we got home and realized it, we sent Mason on the newly repaired (or so we thought) four wheeler to go get it. Some time passed and we received a phone call, "please bring the truck and a rope". That is never good. So, more time passes, knots tied, things towed. All is well. Now off to Mesquite to Best Buy to pick up the computer that was purchased yesterday. Aside from the fact that I let Mason drive, the trip was uneventful. The simple, quick trip did not happen. We arrived at Best Buy at 3:20, computer is not ready yet, give us 45 more minutes, it is a software problem. One hour and forty minutes later, no not ready, maybe fifteen more minutes. I drive us over to Home Depot, we get a couple of keys made. We go to Cavender's and Mason picks out a straw cowboy hat. It is now 5:45 pm, I expected to be home by this time. As we walk in I see, the computer is still not in the box. To shorten the story let's just say, some refunds were given, Madi kept asking, "Are you mad now?", the computer was packed up, the manager was contacted and we finally headed towards home at 6:10. We arrived at the lake lot around 7:25, it was nice and cool. Jim and Andi Green and their boys were tubing. I thought, okay, now I can relax...Then Mason's phone rang. Now I drove to our house; he frantically spit shined, brushed his teeth, and changed clothes and headed out with friends. I drove back to the lake, joined the Greens and now Gary and D'Ann Woolverton. It was 8:05 pm and I did get to relax this time. We enjoyed silly stories, more hot dogs, a cool evening, and a great view. Sorry if reading this wore you out, now you know how I feel.
