At least, that’s how the weekend felt. Working until 5 – and I KNOW this sounds like a total first world problem – is so exhausting. So when you get home at 5:45 pm and then leave the house by 6:50 to go to a friend’s house for drinking and family games and then leave by 12, it’s even more tiring. But we had a great time! It was at our friends’ Tiffanie and Kenny’s home with their three kids then us, and two other families and their kids.
The next morning, Ash and I got up a little early (I didn’t sleep well) and cleaned brewing stuff before heading to a member of the brew club’s home to do a group thing. We were the first ones to get started, which actually worked out better. We were home around 2, rested, then went back out by 5:30 for a friend’s surprise party. He was turning 60 so it wasn’t like some rager or anything but it was very nice. His wife rented one of the nice banquet rooms at the University center/stadium so we had an open bar and very good food and cake. Luckily we were home by 9:30 because I was TIRED.
Sunday was a little more relaxed. Except our main goal was to buy a chest freezer, since the wine fridge we’d been using for beer fermentation bit the dust. We thought Walmart carried them but turns out they’re just a waste of time. BUT Costco did have them and at a good price so, yay. We were able to pitch our yeast and get the brew fermenting. It’s a much better set up than the wine cooler, that’s for sure. Once that was done, I was able to clean and run errands and sit for just a wee bit. My parents got in around 3ish and Dakota had a friend over while Ash worked on some house projects with a friend. It was busy! We had some really good steaks for dinner so that was nice. I feel like I didn’t rest much this weekend but hey, it is what it is.
On a work note, the 23rd of August cannot come soon enough! I can’t believe I actually have an end date now to look forward to. I’m about to start putting large Xs on my calendar, just to count down. And to show my co-workers that they’d better learn some of this stuff I do! Ha!
SO I don’t really watch these shows so I’m not going to be very good at this week’s theme of favorite AI or The Voice songs. OK I’ll give you ONE song. Many years ago, this dude sang a Bobby Caldwell song and I liked it.
