Happy Monday! Is that one of them there oxymoronic phrases? Perhaps. But I'm going to go with it, as I am feeling saucy today. I had a really good weekend and am looking forward, with my usual wacky optimism, to a good week.
DR came over Friday evening and stayed until he had to go to work Sunday morning, so that was excellent. We just hung out watching tv and periodically discussing what to eat. What do you want? I don't care, you pick. I don't care either, you pick. Endless fun. haha! We did venture out for lunch on Saturday with Girlie Girl, Kick Back Dude and Little Prince. Pad Thai, yum.
When I checked the mail on Saturday, I was surprised to find a refund check for my state taxes. I guess I have paid off what I owe and am now actually entitled to money back again...it was rather exciting. Mostly I am thinking how I will be able to pay my auto insurance this time around without the usual handwringing and sacrifices.
On Sunday, Girlie Girl and I went to the mall (I like Churlita's spelling...maul!) Girlie Girl loves to shop, I don't. She really does not ask me for much though, so off we went. She was able to find these capris she needed and we rewarded ourselves with those soft, crispy, but doughy pretzels. For someone like me, that pretty much made my outting.
The only dark spot on the weekend was a midnight phone call from WTG on Saturday night. He'd had some sort of argument with Secret Agent Man (who still lives at home, but at 23 should probably really consider the benefits of a couple of roommates and his own place). Anyway, whenever WTG has some problem with one of the kids, he likes to make sure and call me so that I can be included in the fun and receive my share of the blame for whatever issue is being covered. It never grows old. (Liar! It is totally old, but what can I do?) I take the calls, try to be reasonable, and try not to internalize the criticisms.
But let me not end on that damp note. It didn't do much for me, but all in all it was a pleasant weekend, with great weather and wonderful company. I hope you all had a good weekend as well and are moving into April with a "spring" in your step. har har har... I slay me, really.
