Well, the weekend has gone considerably better than the end of last week. I was very frustrated and cranky by the fact that I was nearly starving to death on Friday and the day at work was not one of the best either. I have now recovered and have eaten like a queen over the past few days and the test went fine to boot. I didn't really appreciate the IV too much, but I knew it was coming and hey, you have to do what you have to do.
Friday night, (after eating my ham, cheese, lettuce and mayo sandwich), I headed over my brother's house to hang out with a bunch of their friends and my other sister. (I actually headed over there only because my sister had said that she had already been drinking for quite a while, and this was at 7:30 in the evening. When I asked her if she needed a sitter, her reply, "probably". I knew that she was well on her way to being hammered and that she might need a sober person nearby. LOL) We had a good time. I (well, we) stayed until about 10:30 or so, and my sister begged me to go to the bar. Wasn't really in the mood for that, after having the test and everything, but I went along. Took her home around 1 and went pretty much right to bed.
Saturday, I did some stuff around the house and then went to a friend's annual b-bq bash. The food was excellent, and it was really nice to see alot of people that I hadn't run into in a while. The band was also pretty good. Wish I would have taken my cam though...the bass player had cow print pants on. I sat there the whole time, wondering just what the hell would inspire him to wear those pants, let alone in public. It was truly hilarious. I should know that I should always take my camera with me, to capture these moments. I admit it though, I was just being lazy because I needed to change the memory card in it! What a loser, eh?
Today was Brian's annual family reunion. There weren't half as many people as last year, but we had an absolutely gorgeous day and was still lots of fun. The food was also excellent here, thank goodness. I'm making up for my starvation bout. (Jello does not make for a great dinner! Trust me on this one!) LOL After the reunion, Brian and his kids left for the upper peninsula for a week.
I've actually been looking forward to him going for a while now. I don't mean that in a bad way, but "me" time is great for everyone, every once in a while. Not to mention, that I don't have my kids for the next week either...they are with their dad. It will truly be time for me. Now that it's here though, I know that I'm going to miss him, bigtime. Oh, who am I kidding, I already do miss him and it's only been a few hours. I know that this is going to be the best thing for us right now though. It couldn't have happened at a better time. We truly need this break. It seems we have become professionals in the arguing circuit lately, and that's not good for any relationship. Just a hump, I'm sure. When he gets back hopefully we will have a new appreciation for each other. (We better, we are going on vaca in a little over 3 weeks and will be spending 10 days together!) LOL
Well, that's about it for me. Will make my rounds in the morning to catch up with everyone!!!! Hope you had a good weekend! My guess is, Slacker had the best, just a hunch! LOL (wink wink)
