Okay, so you should know I can’t actually do nothing unless I’m sick, and even then I talk crazy or whine, so it’s still debatable. Also, remember that weekend I did too good of a job relaxing and got a sick?
Friday, we picked Sassy up and took her with us to the store, where we bought a cart full. I noticed the young couple behind us had merely gathered ale, cookies, and twinkly lights. I could not contain my envy.
When we got home, The Mister blocked my car in, because I would be going nowhere for daaays.
I fell asleep so quickly, I didn’t even put my earplugs in.
I woke up early on Saturday, before I’d ever wake up with an alarm. I had slept well. I wanted to do thoughtful things for The Mister, so I took the dog out and heated up his car and made coffee. Sassy was concerned, “Why are you up?”
The Mister took Sassy to the thing.
When he got back, we had coffee and then I watched shows and pet my dog and fell asleep.
The boy one is here, guess he’s staying about a week? I dunno. There were extra teens at our house, too. Moo had a painting party and this, along with some exchange of furniture between the girls, on top of Bubba’s luggage and recent acquisitions from my in-laws meant that our house was rather … disorderly. Of course I wanted order, but I knew I needed to conserve energy. I told people that our house was in a transitional stage and carried on.
After the thing, The Mister brought more teens to our house. We had talked about him getting takeout to conserve even more of my energy, but I leaned toward comfort food, so I made some turkey and noodles and corn casserole, reheated some veggies and rolls, and whipped up deviled eggs. We had a table full of happy faces we had a splendid time with the young folks.
The great thing about my kids having friends over is that they people and I can sorta people or not people at will.
Still, I wore my love monkey pajamas all day and I did zero dishes.
Evening snuggles? Yes, please.
Sunday, I slept later, but still rose early for me. I prepared ‘breakfast in bed’ by making two glasses of chocolate milk, collecting a bowl of blueberries, one orange, and a coupla bananas and then we ate that breakfast while watching shows in our bed. We alternated between doing laundry and lying in bed. I dozed off again.
Eventually we got up, and then I had to do stuff, because I can’t start a week in disorder. So I cleaned the house and me, then made us a late dinner.
I took this selfie with bacon because self-portrait was the prompt of the day, but while I did it, I thought of Zombie Flamingoes.
Then, this morning, the furnace guy had to come out, because well, you know how Diva Furnace does. Apparently, this time around, he simply needed some cleaning. We’re glad it isn’t time to buy a new furnace and glad to be warm.
I worked today, but only midday. After that, I went to the store to get the provisions, but everyone had beaten me to the cabbage and black-eyed peas, so I hope the brisket I purchased is chockablock fulla prosperity on its own. Also, I bought a fancy cake. Mmm, fancy cake.
The five of us are going to Meat n Milk tonight. (Steak n Shake). Moo wants a burger. It’s like when I want a burger — we feed the beast what it desires. I think I’ll get a vanilla shake and a Coke, since it’s practically a holiday.
I am already looking forward to that, and to bed. I don’t even know if I can midnight. Coke will help. I wish I had a Coke RIGHT NOW.
Y’all got big plans for tonight? Did y’all get yer cabbage and black-eyes peas? Do you have brisket, fancy cake, or a warm house? What’s goin on?
