My Weekend

I am not sure if you are interested in my weekend exploits, but I am going to tell you anyway. And just like TV, if you are not interested, you are certainly free to turn off the machine. But I do hope you enjoy.

Even though there were only four days of school, it felt long. So I was so totally ready when Refreshing Sunshine and Fellow Fanilow restarted their monthly game night. I love the chance to chat with people I see once a month and talk about everything from missions outreach issues to how much of our wall space is given to bookshelves. The best thing is laughing at someone's phony poker face or playing Apples to Apples and winning because you can describe houseguests as chewy roadkill. I always leave the party with sore stomach muscles.

The next day My Sweet and I drove 90 miles up to my mothers, because she made it lovingly clear that we need to see each other face to face every couple of months. My sister and her family came up as well. One of her stepson did a research project on My Sweet and we wanted to see how it came out. Instead of bringing it, he brought some of his ideas for a Japanese style comic book. My Sweet gave him some advice to make it more authentically Japanese.

I am trying to think of something profound to tie this up, but on the way up to Mom's I came down with a bad cold. Therefore my profound-ability is out of whack. If you can think of something, please leave me a comment to give this post a good ending.

So you drove all the way up here and didn't even say "hi" ?!?!?
BTW, Apples to Apples sounds like a really fun game. I might look into it for when we get together with the Pittmans.

Sorry Dotkat. If I stopped by to say hi, you know I would end up staying several hours. If I stay the weekend the story would be different. Apples to Apples is definately the type of game for you and the Pittmans. The more people you have, the better - especially 6 or more.

I don't have a profund ending.

But I love how you share your interactions with your family and friends.

Realtionships are what make my life worthwhile.

Doesn't a weekend of play and lounging about with family un-do a lot of the gunk we store up in our souls from a long, bad workweek. Sorry this week has involved germs. Hope you've enjoyed some of your time away from the classroom. Take care!

A visit with your Mom sounds nice! Too bad you brought home a cold!

Just Me said...

Susan, I am glad you enjoy my little stories.

Doodah! It does help a bit to give me something different to focus on.

sue - It is over a week and I am still coughing up some internal gunk.
