It was one of those weekends. I worked a very busy Saturday, then had a quiet evening. Sunday was the family brunch for Handsome Lad's 12th birthday, which is actually Wednesday. My dad and stepmom came and took us all out. I had the most amazing grilled cheese sandwich. I know that sounds like a lame thing to order at a restaurant, but I assure you, this one is extra amazing. It has four different cheeses and is served on this cheesy garlic bread. Add a side of onion rings and a raspberry lemonade and you'll think you've died and gone to heaven. Well, that might just be me. Anyway, after the meal we had a little coffee and dessert visit at my house. I think Handsome Lad enjoyed all of that. The best part for him, though, was to follow. Kick Back Dude, Princess Diva, and Girlie Girl took him out to spend his birthday money (another completely equipped skateboard) and then out to Skandia for miniature golfing, go-carts, and other amusements. Of course with KBD and PD leading that charge, someone had to tend the babies and who better than the best grandma in the world? Um, yes, I mean me. We had a good time, the four of us, but the girls don't like to go to sleep when they're away from home. So, when the fun time gang finally returned at 11, Love Bug had barely dropped with exhaustion and Miss Personality was still going. At least Little Prince still sleeps anywhere. The Good Night Show would have knocked me out nice and early, but apparently they don't find it as boring as I do.
Now it is another week. It is hot as Hades here and they are repairing the Library's forced air system or whatever it is...anyway, no air conditioning for the next few weeks and I'm thinking the fans they have sitting around are not going to be so helpful. I usually complain about how cold they keep it...this is my karmic punishment, I'm sure. Also, I am on possible jury duty this week. Every night I have to call in and see if I'm needed the next day. So far, two days down. Keep your fingers crossed that I can make it through this week with no jury duty...and no ugly heat stroke! Thanks :-)
