It's Just a Restless Feeling by My Side

The ceiling of my friend K.'s porch.

So, yeah. It's been a while. Tonight I had a little migraine. It's gone now, thanks to meds, but most of the evening, I had to lounge about. I always look at it as that my body must need to rest and so I let it.

Anyway, back to the weekend. Let's see...This weekend was so much more relaxing than the one before it. On Friday I ran and then washed some dishes, then headed over to a friend of mine's house to drink wine and eat Pagliai's pizza. We had a great conversation in the backyard and watched a storm roll in. It just might have been a perfect Friday night.

On Saturday, I mostly worked around my house and hung out with the girls as much as possible. I took Stinky to my friend Eggo's to babysit at 6:30 and got a text from K. that said, "Hey ho bag. Where r u? U should come to Libbys. It's fun." So, I headed over to my friend Libby's birthday party. K. was gone by the time I got there, but there were plenty of other people and tons of food and beer. I had my two beers and sat by the fire with a few friends. I went home by 11 and started watching the first season of Weeds. For some reason, I've seen every season but the first one. I fell asleep on the couch and Stinky woke me up to tell me to go to bed. Wow. Do I know how to party on a Saturday night, or what?

Sunday was a mellow day. The weather was amazing, so I ran and mowed my lawn. I had planned to go on a bike ride with friends, but everyone else lamed out. So, I went to one of Coadster's friends grad parties. Her friend made a big deal about making sure I showed, so Stinky and I did a drive-by after Stinky got off work. Since I missed K. at the party and our bike ride fell through, she asked me to come by her place to have some girl talk. We checked out her garden and gave her housemate J. a bunch of shit until he took off and met some friends at the Deadwood. Then I went home and grilled cheeseburgers and had corn on the cob for dinner. Again. Pretty damn exciting...Or not. Like I always say, in my world uneventful is kind of wonderful.

Ho bag??
Sounds like a great weekend to me. Especially the Pagliai's part. I mowed Sunday too - it's the Sunday thing to do.

Uneventful is a very good thing.
Cold and rainy at home so did some garage and attic sorting and tossing; so good in that respect.

Pamela said...

Good for you.
I so long for uneventful.
sort of.

I saw the name "Deadwood" and thought of the TV series that I need to rent.

My friend put lights on her porch too, whenever she had dinner parties. She had the nerve to move out of the state, though.

Sometimes those down days of rest are much needed. Take care of yourself.

That really does sound like a perfect weekend!
Weeds didn't make my rotation, but I am thinking it will be a perfect one to begin Netflixing.

Uneventful has the perfect amount of space and texture to turn into art. It's always been the best. The other, wild stuff is fun, but mostly, it's about reconstructing shit none of us quite remember.

ANYwho. I have a friend with migraines so terrible, we spent most of last month in the ER, checking on her vision. It was a little scary. Someone was smart enough to recommend she give medical weed a try. And guessy what? It helps those little blood vessels ease up AND helps her rush of anxiety about what's ahead.

MnMom, It really was. The Pagliais and drinking wine and watching a storm roll in was my favorite part for sure.

Rel, I need to do some of that sorting and tossing too.

Pamela, You will love it when you guys get settled and get to have a nice relaxing weekend...Someday.

Tara, How dare she. Did she ask you first so you could tell her that wasn't going to really work for you?

Skyler's, I was so in need of a relaxing weekend. It came at a perfect time for me.

LauraB., You should really see it. It makes me feel like the most together mom ever...And I need as much help with that as I can get.

Booda Baby, Ouch! I hope your friend is much better now. I've tried that remedy and it never really worked for me. It took the edge off a little, but when mine get bad, nothing really works but the meds I finally got on a few years ago.
