First order of business...please join me in noting how weirdly similar Susan Boyle and Adam Lambert's cd covers are. What is up with that?
Okay, moving on...did you have a good weekend? It was kinda cool having Halloween on a Saturday, wasn't it? My weekend was pretty quiet, all things considered. DR came over Thurday evening. We weren't sure what the plan was for the weekend exactly, with everyone else's stuff going on...but there ended up not being that much other stuff...so he just stayed the weekend. Awesome. I had Friday off, so we had some time to just hang out. We do things like laundry, and grocery shopping, and watching movies. It is deeply comforting to me to not have to do everything by myself, as I have for many years. Hard to explain.
Saturday was a work day. Apparently the people of Arcadia had alternative activities besides hitting the library, so it was quiet-ish. Yay! I wore my costume, sort of...the cape part. My friend Milly dressed up, because she was going to a party right after. One of the shelvers dressed up too...but that was it. Everyone else was not fun. We had thought we'd maybe trick or treat around with the babies, but I found out that my M.I.L. was going with them....uh, pass. So we had a nice evening at home. Girlie Girl went out to a party and Handsome Lad was in 'ignoring me' mode, out in the care of his dad. Only one little family ventured into my little complex. Luckily I had some candy on hand. Oh, alright. I always do. haha! Anyway, Girlie Girl and her friends came in late and loud. And apparently they had attracted the attention of some guys who were partying across the street...old men, though, in their 20s. Even after the girls came in, I could hear their voices outside. Girlie Girl handled it though. Opened the door and yelled, "Go home!" They did. And the girls settled down quickly.
Sunday was the great sleep in. Even with the time change...or because of it? I don't know. DR said it was Veg Day...but I did give him a mean look when he wanted to take a nap that afternoon. At least he says I did. But we stayed conscious all day, watching many, many movies. I even managed to cook a meal, which is one of those things worth mentioning. I get frustrated though...it is like people think I CAN'T cook, when in fact I just don't WANT to cook. Geez. Big difference.
Then Monday came and it is back to the salt mines. Got Girlie Girl and Handsome Lad off to school. Talked to Handsome Lad's Resource coordinator...what a great guy, seriously. Made a dental appointment for Social Animal. And another week begins...
Hope it's a good one, for all of us :-)
PS - I have a question nagging at me. But I'm not asking it. Because when you ask a question, you better make sure you are ready to hear all possible answers. I am not sure I'm ready for that.
