Yeah, the title is still appropriate, because my life isn’t really exciting…you can be the judge of that.
The recap: home, tried to tidy a little, S to bed late, not happy. Missed the bus again, got picked up on the eastside, shop, dinner, bed. Gamelan, home, same ‘ol, bad traffic, S on Spring break, drama with C, missed a thing, E drove me to gamelan, show, getting sick.
And it’s a week later. I got the flu and spent the week in bed. I got some work done, but mostly sufferation-high temp, very sensitive skin, not a lot a sleep, upset stomach. Just no fun at all. Got better Thurs, day off Fri, lazy weekend-church, Sat. Market-Salem enjoyed Supadupa Marimba Bros-the music is so happy, and the leader works at Lewis & Clark-he played during the show last week. Didn’t sleep much-up and now at work. The week flew by, sort of-I was still a bit out-of-sorts, gamelan Weds, just not up for it, pretty day Fri., clean Sat.-house is in pretty good shape for the trip. Church Sun, lunch, haircut, dinner, bed. Up early-trying to get in extra hours before the trip. Work, home, dinner, S to bed, bed, up early again. I’m not sleeping very well because of the early rising. Work, home, packing, S to bed, more packing, bed, up. Wearing nice clothes for the travel. Panic about time entry.
OK, it’s Sunday night and we’re at the Omni downtown-the weekend has been frantic and occasionally stressful. I dislike traveling. To summarize: Thursday-work, Max to airport-met family just as they arrived, flight to SFO, then redeye to Atlanta, car, breakfast in Decatur, World of Coke, lunch at Johnny Rockets, drive, very tired, downpour, nice suite, get food, hang out at Sis’, bed. Friday: lazy, E & S to spa, zipline with boys & nephews, pick up E & S, big dinner, bed. Saturday: lazy, shop, wedding, reception, pack, bed. Sunday: breakfast at Sis’, drive, bigfoot museum, more drive, cnn hotel, get a nice suitcase for cheap at a Goodwill in the ‘hood, dinner, big ferris wheel w/S, bed. Up Monday, Waffle House, King Center, Carter Center, airport, flights, Taco Bell for dinner, bed.
Tuesday, and I’m back to the regular grind. C actually made it to school, M got his work done.
