Here’s a list of what I’ve been doing this weekend so far:
1. Being lazy.
2. Being lazier.
3. Being laziest.
4. Hanging out with my daughter for about 24 hours–but even that was just nice in a “spending time together” way rather than “Boy we sure did a lot of fun stuff together” way.
5. Getting a huge burst of energy for a while and cleaning out my shed. What a wasteland; at least now I can get my mower in and out of it.
6. Going back to being lazy.
7. Having a “couple” glasses of wine. My big toe (the one that went to market) has been weird for years, and more weird lately sometimes, so I sometimes think I have “gout”, which I thought was something only fat old kings in history books got. Anyway, some of the things that trigger gout are too much meat (supposed to eat 2-3 ounces a day or less–I bet that’s gonna happen) and the barley in beer. So, in a health-conscious move, I have gone to wine, boxed of course, which is kind of my winter drink anyway. Plus, one glass of wine a day is supposed to be good for you. Of course, then, 8 glasses of wine will be 8 times as good for you.
From the “here’s hoping that there’s a Heaven department”: “Happy Mother’s Day up there, Mom and Sis.” Two ladies that were tied for being the best mothers ever, in my opinion anyway. One lived to 94, and the other was taken from us at 53. You are both greatly missed.
