Friday Update

I’m happy to say that I have power again (yay!) but my kitchen is considerably worse than it was last week since I haven’t been cooking and we had to move the fridge. The fridge is back in place now and I plan to spend at least some of the three day weekend cleaning the kitchen and the hall closet. Having a friend see the embarrassment that is my hall closet was enough to motivate me on that one (our breaker panel is hiding in there).

My best friend, Maya, was down for the day yesterday. I took off at lunch and we spent a lavish afternoon together getting lunch, massages, manicures, pedicures, and blended drinks at Starbucks. It was my first “real” massage and wow. Definitely planning to do *that* again in the future. Spending the day with Maya was exactly what I needed and we have got to do that more in the future. She really needed the time away herself; she is a stay at home mom and, while she loves her son dearly, she said that she really needed the time away.

While Maya was down she showed me what I think is one of the funniest things ever. Go to this site and watch the video on the left hand side with the treadmills: “Here it Goes Again”. I also like the one where they’re dancing in the backyard. I think they may be my new favorite band!

I haven’t done much stitching this week. I have spent a fair bit of time dealing with the lack of electricity and then choir started last night. I missed choir so much during the summer; I am thrilled that it has started back up again. I am no longer the youngest member of the choir, though; one of my friends from bell choir has joined and she’s a couple years younger than I am. It was so great to be back singing with everyone; I can’t wait for the Christmas music to start.

So that’s how things are with me. Luke is settling into kindergarten pretty well and he’s enjoying soccer. All but one of the kids on his team go to kindergarten at his school and it is so different from last season since he’s more comfortable with them. He still played last year but there is definitely a different dynamic.

I’m looking forward to the three day weekend. I’m taking Luke to Legoland tomorrow, most likely; I hope it isn’t super crowded. Sunday I’ll be taking him to a co-worker’s pig roast (their annual tradition for the day before Labor Day) and I have no plans yet for Monday. I’d like to go for a “real” hike or at least a long walk and get a bunch of stuff done around the house. That’s about it!

    I’ve seen the Treadmills video before; I hear that the group performed live last night at the MTV Music awards (I’m a little too old myself to watch MTV, so I heard second hand…)

    I’m glad you had a great day with your girlfriend!

    Sorry about the electricity mess! Sounds like a nightmare, to be sure.
