Another Weekend Whirlwind

Why do weekends go by so quickly? I think there is an inverse relationship to the length of the prior week (my last week was loooong). ;-)

Had a friend over for dinner on Friday and I had some drinks and was surprised how fast I was DRUNK! just takes a week to lose all my tolerance, I guess. Not a bad thing. :-) Still doing well on the SSO (social/special occasion) drinking. Feels good to have a grip on that again.

Saturday I went shopping for some new Ugg-like shoes. Finally found some at a TJ Maxx (and a place I would never normally go, but I was scouring town!). I was trying to shop for some other stuff I need (work pants, skirts, bras), but I didn't manage to find anything. I told DB I thought I was SICK...I can always find something when I'm shopping!!! But I still feel so fat that I'm not really interested in trying anything on (having said that, I did find some great work pants -- Talbots -- at a thrift store yesterday for $1!).

DB was supposed to be home in plenty of time on Saturday for us to make a show in Hollywood at 8 pm (an old friend was in The Merchant of Venice). Of course, he and his crazy family do not communicate so his brother went out at 1 pm for "2 hours" and didn't get home until after 5 (and Nearby Town is, at best, an hour and a half away from our house...more like 2 hours...and Hollywood is, at best, an hour from us)!! I don't know why DB didn't just say to his brother "hey, I have to be out of here by 4:30 at the latest". We managed to hook up by driving in separate cars, but FOR GOD'S SAKE why can't his family TALK to each other about the simplest of things?! Grrrrr. We had a really good time though and...

It is great to have him home...very very VERY great. ;-)

Yesterday it was a wonderful rainy day and I had a ton of stuff I wanted to get done around the house before DB's surgery on Thursday. He is soooo ADD that he cannot was hilarious to watch, actually. ;-) We still managed to get all the boxes gone from his office. :-) It looks a lot better...good enough that people could be back there during our party in December...but it's still cluttered and I hope he works on that some this week too. I took two huge loads of stuff to Goodwill (ouch, my back!). I also was obsessively putting cds into my iTunes (I've sworn that I won't put cds away until they are in, so my whole office is stacked) and worked a bit on MY space upstairs (I think I can finish that next weekend so we're set for the party). We spent a lot of time going through some old photos of DB's and tossing loads of doubles...that was really fun. I so love the times that like when we are just doing something simple's special. :-) Then I did pilates, made dinner and we watched Dogtown and Z-Boys (a documentary that takes place in our neighborhood). Whew!!

My body is really sore today, but that's good...I like getting "inadvertent" exercise! :-)

I think you and I are too much alike. We always find some deal somewhere.

Damn, talbots for $1???

It sounds like a fun weekend once DB got home.

I need to try out those thrift stores, especially for hubby's office party coming up. The first year we went I spent over $200 on outfit and small cheapy evening bag. I don't like to spend that kind of money for a one time event.

Glad you have your man home and it sounds like you two had a great time going through his photos.
