OK, so, not that we remember but other stuff happened last weekend besides an amazing Packers win.
I knew it would be a crazy weekend (Sunday) so I made the choice to lay low on Friday night. Had a couple glasses of wine and, I'm sorry to admit to you, I caught up on "Jersey Shore." That's one of the best ways to remind myself that my life is not nearly as dysfunctional as it could be.
