So the general recap comes first. Then specifics under the appropriate filters.
Friday - woke feeling like H_E_double L, and so cancelled that thing called work and hied myself to the clinic. Where I recieved a tetanus shot to deal with the dog scratch and drugs to deal with burgeoning sinus infection that had kept me up all night.
2 Anti-biotics and a nap later, and I felt almost human. I was treated like the luckiest woman on earth when k_calypso
refused to change her plans and came home with me. We were joined shortly thereafter by the brave the_nita
and LB. K & LB had a blast with chalk and digging in the garden, as well as chowing down on HotDogs which were the inaugural meal on the BBQ.
While they were playing and the dogs were cookings, the lovely ladies assisted / totally ASSEMBELED my 10 piece patio set.!! I'm a lucky lucky lady.
We were later joined by gracyelala
and the beautiful little M who immediately joined the brigade. LB went home with his mommy and K & M became circus performers for the rest of us adults. When they could drag our attention away from DDR that is!
Sometime around midnight, the party came to an end with K being sent to bed, and M making her way home with her parents.
Saturday - we woke around 9 am, and struggled through coffee and morning visitations with the neighbours. I dropped k_calypso
off at the Brick, enroute to trinshadow
's to look after her weeboy so she and hubby could join the Beer Tour. As ever, weeboy charmed me thoroughly and by the time the folks got home, had me all cozied up on the couch, snuggling a boobie!!!
After a "full throttle" wake up, I headed to TO for dinner with curgoth
, before leaving for BENT. I enjoyed watching heads turn as the three of us meandered hand in hand through downtown TO.
BENT was a very full and busy environment. Suffice it to say, in this venue, that I left the hall around 4am, taking knotty_mark
back home, where he managed to live up to his name.
Sunday at 10:30am, the "I MISS YOU, MOMMY" call came in, and I struggled myself upright, into a cup of coffee, and a pleasant banter or two, with a significant insight for myself in the conversation with ladygiggles
. I proceeded to spend far too much time in my own head returning to Waterloo where I collected my child at chez trinshadow
Realizing I'd been abandoned by the ephemeral k_calypso
, I spent time instead with gracyelala
and the "other sister" letting M & K play around outside. I sat still and, possibly, dozed whilst my hair was twined into tiny braids and lamented my inability to "pull off" dreadlocks.
Upon arriving home, I realized that I'm indeed toasted and tired and should type out/process some stuff for them that needs to know, and just be still. I cancelled the DDR date for this evening with the hopes of postponing it for later in the week.
Speaking of later in the week.
On deck we have ...Scrabble for Monday (depending on K's mood and behaviour), DDR either Tues or Wed, athena_51
?? Thursday dinner?? please confirm...and there was a naughty mention from knotty_mark
for a possible Friday...Sat sees...the_nita
BDAY celebrations, and dinner with neeuqdrazil
Somewhere in there, I'm hoping to paint some as that STILL hasn't happened... LMAO.
So there you have it folks... A life. In the making.
