More Numbers, etc.

Total hours driven this weekend: 15
Total miles driven this weekend: 913
Total tanks of gas used: too many
Fires driven by in random fields yesterday: 3 (???)
On a scale of 1-10, how happy I was to get home and see Mr. Smith last night: 276

It really was a fun weekend in Michigan, but it was a little too short and it had a little too much driving. I was so happy to be in attendance at my friend K's bridal shower on Saturday, though - which was the central reason behind my trip home for the weekend. She and her husband-to-be live in Chicago, and I am really hoping that they come to visit Mr. Smith and me soon. Are you reading this, K??? :) Come visit!!!!

Anyway, I don't have much else to chat about this morning - it is very blah and dreary outside today, pouring rain. We're supposed to get extremely "strong storms" today, possibly with hail. Yippee! Definitely a good day to stay inside all day. Sadly, I'm out and about, running around from work to another meeting and another meeting and another meeting all day long.

How is your Monday going? And how was everyone's Easter?

we saw so many fires on farms this weekend too - time to burn that dried out brush so that the new grass comes in. i am not smart enough to actually know that. i read it on pioneer woman's blog, and she lives on a farm. :) glad you had a good weekend!

WE totally saw fires in the country as well & I was told the same as Jenn - that people are burning up old stuff?! Glad you had a good weekend, regardless of the long drives!

I hate driving places. It just makes trips seem so much longer.
