Saturday was the big day. The nieces had their 2nd and 4th birthday party, and all the family came. Five (and a half) cousins, three grandparents, three aunts and uncles, and even a great aunt and uncle. We had fruit and veggiesย  and chips and burgers and cake and ice cream. There were presents and games and a huge cardboard colorable castle. It was good to see everyone and be surrounded by family for an afternoon. Hadn’t seen a lot of those folks for around a year(since last year’s bday party).

Sunday was also very nice. A nice lunch with my parents and aunt and uncle, chatting and munching on cheddar bay biscuits. Mom and I went shopping after that, wandering around Easton, enjoying ourselves, but having no luck. We went to Walmart after that and found exactly what we needed. The simplest answer, usually is the best. Then a nice Italian dinner that was both delicious an pleasant. We missed our movie, but the food and time with my parents was worth it.

Re-energized by a pleasant weekend, I was able to get up early for a goodbye breakfast and quick stop at a thrift store for pants before they left for the long drive home. I spent the rest of the day being quite productive. Cleaning, taking care of finances, and running errands. Good, thing, too. The rest of the week has been far from productive.

I did sort out the FTP problem, I think. Just need to check one more thing. The school job is out, but maybe not permanently. And there might be a bit of paid temp work I can help out with there. As I said this past weekend, I really don’t mind, to the point of liking, data entry, but I’d really like it to be for something meaningful. I’m a terribly procrastinator, but I’m opening my eyes a little bit wider now.

My back is doing better. My elbow is being weird. And anniversary plans are still up in the air. This month is not yet over. ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re going to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 on Sunday, so I’ve been reading all the books again in preparation. I know the movies are different and cut a lot of stuff out, that’s to be expected, I just wanted to remember it all correctly before the final movie. I’m starting Deathly Hallows today. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a busy week for me. Two days of thrifting for clothes. A haircut. (Thank you, JoJo!) Wonderful evenings with friends and loved ones. Meals out to celebrate. A couple full 8-hour shifts at work. Lots of reading, a little writing. Even some responsible stuff at the BMV. Having a great time, and looking forward to spending my birthday with Rich and other friends at an incidental pool party between our birthday lunch and our movie endeavor.

Up next week – probably going to raid Half Price to finish out a few collections with whatever birthday money is left unspent. One more bit of editing for the gaming book. And hopefully some FTP details so I can do some more website work. As well as over 20 hours at the store.

Life is not just good, it’s great. ๐Ÿ™‚
