I actually got shit ACCOMPLISHED this weekend!
It was a peaceful weekend, one that I spent mostly holed up in our home office, trying to tie up all those loose ends that need tying up before one goes away on vacation.
Friday, I hit both the banks so I wouldn’t have to go anywhere during the weekend. Came home to some nice things…namely, the boy had cleaned the front bathroom and done his own laundry. He had also gone shopping and gotten himself some new shirts for work. He’s such a good boy. For all that, I made him a nice dinner of pork chops and saucy bow-tie noodles. I feed him well.
Saturday, he had to work. My mission was to re-burn the two mix CDs I had made a few weeks ago, since both were screwed up, along with burning a new CD. I got up around 10 and got to work, finally stopping to eat some lunch around 1. The day FLEW by as I got all the CDs burned and played solitaire on Pogo. I was shocked when I looked at my watch and saw that it was 5 o’clock!
Lissa came over with one of her cats and her new kitten for a playdate with my girls. Suffice it to say, Murron promptly established who was boss in the house and Bailey went and hid under the couch. The kitten is absolutely ADORABLE. I snapped a roll and a half of film, which means I need to get to Best Buy and score some film before we leave for Jersey.
For dinner, I had marinaded up a nice steak in baja chipotle marinade. We had that, mashed potatoes and peas with onions for dinner while watching the night race at Bristol. The boy got home from work, ate dinner and went to bed. Lissa almost left without her kitten, ’cause I didn’t want her to take him home!
Sunday, more work for the boy. I got up around noon, finished up the laundry and burned another CD. Played solitaire most of the day. Cleaned up around the house a bit. Forgot to empty the dishwasher. Went outside in the stifling heat and emptied out my car. Almost passed out when I got back inside. I had to take a cold bath to keep from keeling over!
The boy got home from work and I promptly sent him back out to get dinner. There wouldn’t have been a problem had someone remembered to take his phone with him in the morning! I didn’t feel like cooking…I was still woozy from being out in the heat and was getting a bit of a headache. After dinner, he went to bed early and I stayed up til about midnight, playing solitaire.
Yes, I play a lot of solitaire. No, I will not miss my computer ONE FUCKING BIT while I’m on vacation.
The boy’s classes start today. At least he’s got off tomorrow and Wednesday so he can get a start on them. I’m just waiting for his last book to come in.
FOUR. MORE. WAKE-UPS.
