Do cattle with human baby faces freak you out, man?
It really has been a roller coaster-ish these past few days. Well, maybe not as exciting and dramatic as that. More like a little bumper boat ride where you are floating along and occasionally you get and little thunk as you come up against something. Allow me to share. Um, please? Okay.
The Saturday Goods: All of our storytimes filled up very quickly. It is nice to feel that you are giving the peoples something that they want. It was a very reasonable Saturday at work. Steadily busy, but not as crazed as it can be. I was able to have a nice little online visit with DR, although he did kick my ass in Literati.
The Saturday Bads: All of our storytimes filled up very quickly. Some people were somewhat angry and/or hurt that they were unable to gain admission and it isn't fun to disappoint people. Um, it was a Saturday and I was at work, so....
The Sunday Goods: I had decided that I was going to have a genuine day off and I really did! I didn't have any chores or any pressing engagements. I got to totally slack off and just read and catch up on my tivos. Also had a nice dinner out with Girlie Girl and the Kick Back Dude family. Best of all, I had a very long, involved phone call with DR that went late into the evening.
The Sunday Bads: I spent a goodly portion of my very special quiet day feeling sick of my own company. That is not usual for me, but I was very unsettled and didn't enjoy myself as I should have.
The Monday Goods: This was an all food, all family visiting day. We all had lunch together at McDonalds so the babies could play and we could all eat unhealthy food. Then, just a few hours later, Kick Back Dude and Princess Diva hosted a dinner time Labor Day barbeque. More good food and visiting. Seemed like an ideal way to celebrate Labor Day. Or at least as good as any other.
The Monday Bads: I finally got that awaited phone call from my landlords telling me how much they were going to require to cover my post move clean up in the vacated apartment. $300. I know that is a dishonest number, but am going to try and just pay without saying anything. I still have to live in their building after all. I was surprised though. Had a nasty little argument with Girlie Girl about a straightening iron. I chose the $25 one, she was holding out for the $65 one. Not gonna happen. We made up though. As a topper to the day, Handsome Lad's backpack was stolen right out of the back seat of my car when we were at KBD's house. Unfortunately, I left the top down. But who the heck takes a kid's math homework? Trust me, though, I know it was my lassaiz-faire attitude that lead to this and I will definitely be paying the price in the form of replacing the math text he had in there.
That last one looks like a long 'bad', but don't be fooled. All in all, I'd say it was a balanced weekend. The good probably even outweighed the bad. I hope your good outweighed you bad as well. Tell me about it!
