Catching Up and a Productive Weekend

Hello, friends. I hope you had a great weekend. :)

My weekend was pretty productive. I don't know if I've mentioned to you all. But three months ago, I moved in with my boyfriend in his two-storey traditional twelve year old house that I think is very beautiful. It's not a perfect house and it definitely needs a little 'tweaking'. Anyway, since I've lived with Dan we've just been constantly making changes to "our house" (he prefers me to call it that way rather than "his house", lol)as far as decor, re-arranging the furniture, adding stuff in it, etcetera. He's loved the "woman's touch" and has been very grateful for all my new input to the house. By the way, we also have a Shih Tzu dog named Gibson who's so adorable but one that still needs potty training and all. Lately, he's been spending a lot of time in our patio and has left some you-know-what odor there no matter how much we clean up. So last Friday I told Dan that the next day Saturday will have to be spent on cleaning the house- especially our patio and garage to get rid of the odor and do some organizing. It was a great weekend plan. Now the patio is all clean, nice, and smelling good! I didn't enroll in an Organizational development program but I can tell you, I did a pretty good job organizing stuff around the house. ;) The garage is still so-so as far as the organization part, but we definitely got rid of so much junk and dust that's probably been sitting there for about three years or so. Take note that before I moved in to the house, only him and his twelve year old son lives there. My boyfriend is a busy business guy who doesn't have a lot of time in his hands to clean his house full force. So anyway, after we did our thorough cleaning this weekend, the patio, garage and even the basement look so much better! :)

Dan and were both so proud of ourselves being so productive. So yesterday afternoon, he told me out of the blue that we should go to Charlestown Races and Slots just for fun. And since we were both "kid-free", it was the perfect time to go there. The last time we did the slots was when we were on our vacation in the Bahamas last May. We had fun with it. I'll tell you honestly, those can get addicting if you're not cautious, lol. But no, Dan and I just plays for fun. I don't think we'll ever become casino/slots addicts, lol.

Anyway, we drove for about 1.5 hours to Charlestown, betted total $60 on the slots and came home with $138 cash. Not bad, huh? It was my first time being in that place so I was a little disappointed when we didn't see the horse racing. We got there too late- about 9 PM- so all the races were done for the day. That could have been fun. Anyway, I'm sure it won't be our first time there. The slots are fun to do and I'm sure the horse racing will be a sight to see the next time we go there. We weren't in bed 'til a little past 2AM this morning, so right now I am still feeling a bit dizzy from lack of good shut-eye. :)

That's how my weekend went. How was yours? I'd love to know! :)
