OK, this time I’ll actually get to posting more than twice a month. I say that every time. And of course, it didn’t happen. Not that it makes any difference-I use this primarily as a memory aid and a link farm.
C’s birthday Mon.-didn’t do much. I like my family a lot. Obama is visiting today and tomorrow-the forecast is for really, really bad traffic. I’m leaving early today. Worked from home Fri. Our car is on its last legs-we looked at new ones Sat., got a decent interest rate. New church Sun, E & M to Avengers, shop, failed with Mother’s Day gift. Miserable Mon., dentist’s Tues., got my new crown. Bought a car Thurs., Fri, Sat., E went out with friends’, church Sun., contentious meeting.
And the week has gone by, again. Letterman retired, watching the last show. Early Fri., hanging out. Cleaning, Sat., shop for C’s trip, church Sun., E drove C to trip Mon., pretty quiet. House is pretty clean, put up a screen on the front door, neighbors are getting evicted, woke up to something going on outside-police loudspeaker, didn’t go out to investigate… and it’s Thurs., busy, C at Outward Bound, E going away this weekend, busy Sat coming up. And it went pretty well-ran errands with S, took C to a friends’, took S and friend to playtime, picked them up, church Sun, picked up C then E’s friends’ son, back home. So, so, so tired Mon., worked from home Tues., picked up E from church. Quiet Weds., got dog poop on my shoe.
