And my weekend was non-stop craziness. Ok, not as crazy as it could be but for a 36 year old mom of three it was. Friday was busy from the get-go: grading papers and student conferences. When I left, I met Ash for lunch (yummy Mexican and beer!) and then we saw Ant-man, which was a lot better than the preview would lead you to believe. As soon as it was done, I had to make dinner because I’d promised them spaghetti. But I had a 5:45 meet up time with my friends so it was rush rush. I got to BJ’s brewhouse right on time and we had a great meal. They do a weekday happy hour until seven with half off appetizers and dollar off draft beer. Um, yes! I even ordered a flight to sample their brews. Excellent.
After that was when I started making bad decisions though. We had planned to see the 7:30 showing of Magic Mike but one of my friends thought cheap wine from CVS was a good idea. In theory, it was. The movie – drunk – was a riot. I’m not sure if it would have been as good sober. I was feeling pretty done after the movie. But I have the kind of friends who like to dance so that is what we did. We went to Tap Room and the only time I ever dance is when I’ve been drinking. Not going to say I didn’t have a blast but I had a rough time getting started on Saturday. I normally mow on that day but I definitely did not. In fact, I did very little until 4 when we went to another get-together. This was a woman Ash knows from work, hosting a family-oriented end of summer party – with a fajita bar! We had fun, for sure. But I wasn’t feeling all that chatty.
Sunday was all errands and mowing the lawn and fixing up the kegerator and water balloons and rest. Though I didn’t actually take a nap. I started to drift off around 5 but made myself get up and finish laundry. It was a looong weekend but a good one. I am ready for some kind of break but that’s not happening soon. Busy at work, busy the next few weeks with Elliot not being in camp and getting ready for Fall semester. And in two and a half months, I’ll be on a beach in Hawaii and it’ll be magical.
Freebie week!! Let’s keep playing Culture Club, as I did last week. I’m sorry but they’re good, y’all!
