Well, We're Back, Aren't We?

Another work week is upon us. My weekend was good and I hope that yours was as well. It was a mixed bag as far as the sleep issue goes. The RLS was raging Friday night- I didn't sleep at all. I take that back. I fell asleep at 8:00 AM and my alarm went off at 9:00. I went to get my taxes done, then went to lunch with my daughter and my ex at a local diner. Can you believe I'm getting a $1,500 return? Sweetness.

On my way home my brother called me. He is doing well recovering from his surgery, although still in a lot of pain. He sounded really good. He is not supposed to be driving for a couple of weeks yet, but he is already driving himself to dialysis. He's a stubborn pain in the ass, but I love him. When I got home, around 3:00, I sat down to watch the news. I fell asleep and when I woke up it was 10:45 PM! I was really wiped out! I watched some more news after that and went to bed and read for a while. I slept great Saturday night and woke up Sunday morning feeling good.

On Sunday I went to the music store and picked up a new tube for my guitar amplifier. Then I went home and installed it. It worked partially. Bobby, I'll be emailing you about this. Afterwords, it was so warm I went out and washed my car and got all of the nasty road salt off of it. Then I took it down to one of those coin operated car washes and vaccumed it out really well. It's true that a clean car runs better. After that I went to the ex's for the usual Sunday dinner with her and the kids. we had a nice time.

One unfortunate thing happened this weekend. As you may remember, I was supposed to take a trip home next week to visit the family. That is not going to happen now. I talked to Billy Boy on the phone on Saturday, and he is not coming home until the end of that week at least, so I'm going to have to cancel and reschedule the visit. I had talked to my son about maybe house sitting for me, but he can't. He lives near Philly now, and although he works right near my house, his girlfriend works in philly. He has to take her to the train station every morning, so that would not work out. I'm bummed about it and my family is, too, but I can do nothing about it but reschedule once I know for sure when Bill is coming back. I hope to know by mid week.

Well, back to the salt mines. Everyone have a great Monday.


  1. Nice news about the tax refund. So, what are we going to do to celebrate? lol. Hugs.

  2. Maybe I'll go out somewhere to eat seafood and have a drink to celebrate. That's always good.

  3. Well, darn! I hope Billy Boy does return soon so you can reschedule your trip.

  4. Dove- I should know by tomorrow, so I have my fingers crossed...

    Chiaro- Me, young? Why thank you! And I will drink for you...
