My Weekend in Rewind

I had a very full weekend, which translates……I am really behind. The worst part about having to go outside to get to my basement is when it is dark out. That’s exactly what I am doing though, I am playing catch up with laundry right now.

I went down and well didn’t do much, I tried to do what I could, to work on costumes for the play. I did get to see the sewing space in the old vault.WP_20130915_002I also met this guy….WP_20130915_001I think that I may be emotionally attached to him already 🙂

If I ever decide to run away from home……this is where I am going. Nobody would ever think to look for me here.

I had lunch with some great friends, we had a lot of laughs. I have my ‘no talking about work when I am not there’ rule that was broken repeatedly, but sometimes I think you have to do that.

I ran into an old friend at Dick’s today. Why is it that when you look like a train wreck and feel like one too that is when you run into someone you know? I don’t know why it bothers me, but it does. I grew up with him, he sang at my wedding…..and I hardly ever go out in public not put together (yes I am aware that I am whining)….I feel busted, like I looked old or something.  I let a chink in my armor show today….that’s bad…I have an illusion of having it together to keep up. AND Pt made bacon so I had that fried smell in my hair and on my clothes….ugh!

It was good to see everybody at breakfast again, I was late because of my dream. PT fed me anyway… 🙂

There was an outdoor sporting event at our local park yesterday, I dragged the girl there. They had a company there that is opening an indoor archery center soon, so we talked to them for a second or two. The girl wouldn’t shoot their bows, she doesn’t like compound bows, she likes her long bow. She used that argument to get me to try. I can’t even pull the string back on hers, so she was right they were way easier. I took six shots and only missed the target once, the guy turned to the girl and said “this must be where you get it from” and she said back to him “Nah I get it from my uncle”….geez feel the love.

My favorite part was the bird sanctuary, I even purchased a shirt.WP_20130914_008

My Saturday started bright and early to spend the morning with my aunt at the trunk show. The coolest part of that is…..she does this every year with her friends…..and she asked me to join them. She didn’t have to ask me she chose to.

Her one friend had the coolest/most disturbing purse that I have ever laid eyes on.WP_20130914_001

Yep its a real gator, in case there are any doubts….here is the backWP_20130914_002

I bought this little gadget that attaches to my meat grinder attachment…that I may or may not ever use for $5.00WP_20130914_010

If I ever decide to make pasta I will have the thingy to do it.

I had a good time, I did leave a little early because the girl had a float committee meeting. It took me 25 minutes to get home and pick her up, another 15 to get to her friends. We were turning onto her friends street when she got the text ‘meetings over’. I just looked at her and then said “I didn’t kill myself trying to get you here for nothing, the meeting was only 30 minutes…..go anyway, talk to your friends and see what you missed.” Which ended up being nothing, they decided on the theme and the girl said she already knew that from Friday.

I am more tired now than I was when this weekend started. The play starts this Friday and I am still winging it, I help when I can and with what I can. This is going to be a really busy week…I see a lot of coffee in my future….Zia
