Weekend Update

Wow, so let's see. This is the first chance I've had to get on here since Wednesday night. Thursday right after work I met HD over at his mom's house for dinner and we didn't get home until 11:00. Friday right after work we went to see his nephew play soccer and were invited over to my mom's house to hang out around a fire. But after soccer we were both too wiped out to go anywhere else but home. Watched a couple shows and crawled into bed around 11ish.

Saturday he went to work and I slept in a little bit. I was going to go do some shopping and when I got outside to hit the first place I decided that was the only place I was gonna go. Had to get cat food. It was such a beautiful day out that I decided to come home and mow the lawn. But while I was at the vets getting the food HD called from work asking me to go to Home Depot and check out a tool box he's been wanting. So I did that and then came home and mowed the lawn. I just walked in the back door when I heard my Nextel's alert going off. He was worried about his mom and sister. He'd been trying to get a hold of them for most of the day and no one was answering, then he tried me and I wasn't answering. He wanted me to go over to his mom's to make sure everything was ok. Which it was, his mom's phone was turned off and charging and his sister's was on the silent mode.

I planned on leaving and going back home so I could take a shower and come on here but his mom wanted to talk to me. She wanted to let me know that she had been a little uncomfortable with me being at the counseling session on Tuesday. But she said it didn't make sense since she considers me family and has no problem with me knowing anything. But it just felt weird saying things out loud to a stranger and also in front of me. She was worried about what I would think of her as a mother. But we're all good now and she's ok with me going. We ended up talking until H Ditty called to say he was heading home with dinner in hand so I had to leave.

Today I slept in again, a little later than yesterday. Man did it feel good, I didn't want to get up at all. But I did and finally did the grocery shopping. Last night HD wanted me to watch the 2nd season of the British version of The Office because he already has and he wants to watch the special. But I didn't want to watch it last night so I promised I'd watch it today. So rather than sit outside enjoying the weather while catching up on Clan of the Cave Bear I had to sit inside watching the show. I enjoyed it, but it's not half as good as our version. But now here it is almost 6:00 and I'm just now able to update and go to some of the blogs I read.

Which I'm gonna get to before he gets home.

Media quote of the day: You grow up, you work half a century, you get a golden handshake, you rest a couple of years and you're dead. And the only thing that makes that crazy ride worthwhile is 'Did I enjoy it? What did I learn? What was the point?' That's where I come in. You've seen how I react to people, make them feel good, make them think that anything's possible. If I make them laugh along the way, sue me. And I don't do it so they turn round and go 'Thankyou David for the opportunity, thankyou for the wisdom, thankyou for the laughs.' I do it so, one day, someone will go 'There goes David Brent. I must remember to thank him.' - David Brent - The Office
