It's hard keeping up!

It's hard to find time to update my blog here lately! I've been really busy at work, so it's hard to try to put together coherent thoughts while the phone is ringing and the boss is asking for this or for that.

So, this past weekend was super busy, but filled with fun! Friday night was dinner and drinks with the family and then off to Fox and Hound for pool and more drinks with friends! We had a blast!

But, let me back up for a sec. Friday. I decided that I was gonna go vote early on Friday. So, I head out to one of the locations and, lo and behold, the computers that put all of your information on the card that you insert into the voting machines, were down. Of course. So, I decided to go to another location that was near. On my way, I run into traffic caused by a wreck. Someone hit a telephone pole at a busy intersection on the street that I had to use. And, there was no turning around. AHH! I finally get to the next voting location and the line? Let's just say that it would have taken me probably 1 and 1/2 hours, at least, to get through that. So, I scratched voting. When I was leaving the first location, my car started making a funny sound. It sounded like I had a flat tire. So, I pull over and check. Tires are fine. I go on my way.

The sound just kept on. I get back to work, look at my tires from the back and I have a huge something or other in my tire. Grrreat. After work, it's off to wal-hell to get the tire patched. Ack! I needed a drink after all that!

Saturday had me getting new tires. And, then, heading out to watch this NASCAR race!! If you ever get the chance to go to a race. GO! The power of those cars is unreal! If you are standing by the track when they all pass, you can feel the vibrations in your chest! It's awesome.

After the race, there was a concert. Good bands. Good beer. Then, somehow, we ended up at this local bar and there was karaoke involved. And beer. Alot of beer. And just so ya know, I CANNOT sing. At all!

But, it was a blast! It's been a long time since I've done something like that and it was great!!!

Karaoke is one of the few things you can enjoy sober as well as drunk. It's funny to watch, listen to and actually do!

Sniff! I miss Fox and the Hound. Good times...good times.

And coincidentally, I was in the Big M this weekend and I think I got in the same traffic jam as you...was it in Shelby Farms?

And not only can you feel the vibrations in your chest, you get the rubber all over you and smell the fuel burning. Nothing like a good race. And for me the Busch guys do it best. They still race.

That sounds like an almost perfect weekend. Racing and drinking. That's heaven to me =)

I didn't know you were a fan of Nascar? The tyke is currently a huge fan. Of course, his lack of interest in football is beginning to worry us.

SJ said...

I come from a long line of Nascar fans and you are right, there is nothing like a race unless you are actually there to experience it.

Sounds like you had a great weekend, well minus the tire problems!
