7 Quick Takes Week 2

--- 1 ---

Spurs won the NBA finals!  I really thought that the last game would be tougher for them.  They didn’t get off to a very good start, but once I changed my shirt, they started playing better – not that I’m superstitious or anything.  Matt and I went to Academy Sports after the game on Sunday to get championship shirts.  We had to wait in line an hour and fifteen minutes before we got into the store.  On Wednesday we went to the Championship River Parade.  I got there a few hours early to get a good spot – which I did, but I wished I would have taken a blanket or some kind of cushion to sit on.

So my last day of work was a week ago.  I spent all of Saturday being a complete slug.  I didn’t even change out of my pajamas all day.  I even talked Matt into going to the store for me just to get a can of cat food for Lucy who was out.  I haven’t done a whole lot this week though I’ve done some wedding stuff.  I still haven’t found a horn and flute player and I’m getting a little worried.  I’ll be sending out an all call to my band director friends soon.

I spent most of Thursday driving all over town getting wedding stuff.  I went to two different Half Priced Books stores in search of an old book to use for my ring bearer’s book/pillow.  I went to two different Party City locations to get the plates, napkins, cups, and other things for the reception.  I went to Sam Moon to get some bling for my bridesmaids.  I had lunch at Panera.  I didn’t get home until almost 9:00.  I had a fairly raging headache by the time I got here, but took some headache medicine and ate dinner and it quickly subsided.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love living in San Antonio?  Even though I had to drive all over town today, the traffic wasn’t really that bad.  I still smile when I drive by downtown and sometimes I still can’t believe I’ve lived here for almost three years now.

We’ve gotten some new dinnerware sets as wedding presents and I think they are very nice, but I have one problem – the dinner plates don’t fit in my upper cabinets.  I don’t have room for a hutch to display them either.  I guess I’m going to have to find a place to put them in one of the bottom cabinets which is just weird for me.

I had to renew my library card this week.  It expired over a month ago, but they require people to renew it in person.  Since I had to head downtown for the river parade on Wednesday, I just parked in the library parking lot, renewed my card, and checked out a book to read.  I’m going to try to get some reading done this summer.  I set a goal of reading 52 books this year and I’m about 8 books behind at the moment.  Then again, I spent the last two weeks rereading the Harry Potter series.

Matt and I need to find wedding rings soon.  Matt will be fairly easy – he just wants something simple.  My engagement ring is pretty unique which makes it more difficult to find something that works with it.  I think that will be our task on Monday.
