Weekend Update with Swiss and CP- Sunday Edition

Filed under: Cheesepuff,Love & Relationships,Ringwatch 2007,The Fam — by corazondeswiss @ 9:20 pm

Woke up around 8ish due to Spring Ahead.  HATE Spring Ahead (for the record CP really hates it this year since it fell on his birthday and he was cheated out of an hour of his birthday).  My mom made waffles for breakfast (aside: she only cooks like that when we have guests. Don’t get too jealous).  Then we showered and went to church. 
And during the sharing of the peace, someone from John’s church in his hometown, walked up.  John’s family belongs to a small church, but his hometown is a major city, so the chances that someone here would be from his church are well, slim to none.  Especially after he told us that this woman and her daughter have no car, the daughter is around our age, but was homeschooled and has pretty much no marketable skills (Aside, the daughter had some weird hairdo that involved a bun on top of her head AND a braid down her back.  What’s up with that?).   During the rest of the service I could feel them staring at us.  Anyway, CP talked to them after church and then we went to pick up his birthday cake and got some groceries.  We finished at the store and went to restaurant in the same shopping center and as we’re walking across the parking lot we hear “CP!” and its this girl from the church.  Whoever had given them a ride to church also gave them a ride to the grocery store.  How random! So now, due to CP my mom and I have acquired church stalkers.  My dad says he’s not going to sit with us anymore so they won’t stalk him. (He was totally kidding.  I think.)
CP and I settled into watch “Flags of Our Fathers”  which my mom and I had attempted to watch during the first week I was home, but were both so tired we fell asleep.  It had some hard to follow parts, but it was a good movie overall.  Very sad.  It makes you think about how different things are today- especially with the recent press about VA hospital care- it is much better than it was after WWII!  I don’t want to say too much, because I don’t want to give away the movie. 
We went for a walk around the neighborhood before the family dinner and I got to tell CP about the houses and the families that live(d) in them.  Our house is one of the original 4-6 houses that were built out here and I am constantly amazed at how many neighbors we have now! 
We had a fun family dinner followed by cake, ice cream and presents.  CP got all the things he asked for: a wireless mouse for his new computer, a CD player for his desk at work, a wallet and a new shirt.  He said they were all just right.  He was a good sport about the cake tradition of smearing the icing of your name and wearing it on your nose during the eating of your piece of cake (you can’t talk while eating your cake).  Thanks to my friend M for that tradition.  And I took his picture.  Which I’ll post eventually.  As soon as I get around to it. 
We went back to the hot tub Sunday night and then snuggled in for a make out session (again locking the door- lessons learned!) 
Monday morning I dragged out of bed early so I’d have time to eat breakfast with CP before I went to work.  He walked me out to the car and had me laughing as I pulled away (instead of crying).  So I’ve begun my work week and am over the hump now. 



  1. Oh lovey, still sounds like an awesome weekend. Maybe he’s stashing the ring for a uber special occassion. When is it your anniversary?

  2. Perhaps he is stashing the ring for a special occasion. Our anniversary is April 3, a Tuesday, so I don’t know if he will try it for then or not. I’m going to be a way the weekend before to a concert with my sister. We’ll see.

  5. Church stalkers…. I’d be happy with any kind of stalker… flattering concept, when you think about it 😉

  6. Update on the Church Stalkers…
    CP’s mother went to church in his hometown the week after he was here and one of the church ladies had had a letter from the Church Stalkers talking about seeing CP when he was here!
