I think I’ve had an awesome weekend if only because I spent most of it resting at home. Well, most of it. (I can’t remember when was the last time I spent four hours napping on the living room couch.) Yes, I was grumpy. So I lay down and just dozed off. The boys left me a grilled chicken snack wrap. (I would’ve preferred a big mac or a chicken sandwich, but for some reason, the snack wrap satisfied me.)
The house is quiet at almost 7pm. The boys went for tennis walling and I just got a call that the tyke didn’t like the pan de sal from the nearer store. Sigh. I guess I’m going to have to trek down to Woodside sometime this week and pick up two bags. I don’t hear any silverware klinking but I gave my mother-in-law dinner already and I opened her airconditioner just to cool her room down. I’ve done my online grocery shopping (via FreshDirect) which I’m hoping to get tomorrow. I just picked out a unique ice cream brand I think I ought to try — just as a treat. So I unclicked the Magnum. (This old body can only take so much calories at this age…)
Tomorrow starts another workweek. Hmmmmm… Work is work. Never changes. I’m trying to plot when I’m going to take the ‘day off for me’ in August, more so since I might need to assist a peer of the boss when he’s out. I was sort of torn between trying to make myself useful and just keeping my mouth zipped, but with the job situation prevailing here, you cannot NOT be proactive. So I volunteered. I think I ought to check what’s happening around Manhattan in the next couple of weeks and take a pick from there.
Meanwhile, it’s the last week of summer camp for the tyke. (I am relieved only because he’s grown soooo dark despite the suntan lotion I patiently spray and slather on him every morning. ) He’s been trying to convince us not to send him to day camp next year — but keeping him at home the whole summer would be such a waste of precious time and the father wouldn’t hear of it. So between now and the next summer, I’m going to research “other” things he might be enrolled in for next summer, and keep him busy at least the first four weeks or half of it.
We’re trying to plan another vacation. We’re thinking of returning to Williamsburg, Virginia which is a favorite vacation spot for us, usually alternating between years we head for Orlando and Mickey Mouse country. Since we did Disneyworld last year, we’re thinking of taking the drive down through this historical area this time around, and maybe stopping by to visit another place or two along the way.
Can you believe that other than finishing my Art Journal Every Day entry posted below, I didn’t do any crafting at all? Well, blame it partly on Batman. Can I say how completely awesome The Dark Knight Rises happens to be? I am probably partial because Gotham is New York and it’s MY New York I saw in great splendor throughout the two hours and forty-five minutes the movie played. And ROBIN IS FINALLY HERE! (Funny how Angelo was asking how come Robin wasn’t in the movie…then he got an answer straight from the screen towards the end.) I guess we’ll just have to sit back and wait for the next installment and this time, with the dynamic duo together.
Well, the boys are back. Time to take care of dinner.
