Now It's Easy When You Don't Know Better

The most hideous ornament ever made...By Coadster when she was in kindergarten.

So, my. What a weekend. Friday was very nice with the guy...But they all are with him.

Saturday we went To G.'s house and got her bike put on a trainer so she can ride inside during the Winter. I ran outside and that was nice too. The guy and I went to the Dublin and had some drinks while the guy played pool with our friends, Paco and Heather. We went to the Bluebird Diner for dinner and had some great seafood pastas and wine. I dropped the guy off at his place and went home and tried to watch The Messenger. It seemed really good, but I was too tired and fell asleep about a half hour into it.

Today was a great and hectic day. Coadster's boyfriend came to visit. He's really kind of awesome and funny. He helped Coadster and I get our Christmas tree. I ran outside again and I needed it. Then the guy asked me if I wanted to go to the University rec services building and swim with him. Of course, I did. It was such a wonderful afternoon. We swam laps and he helped me with my breathing and with doing certain strokes. It was a 50 meter pool and it was the first time I've ever been able to swim the whole way without stopping to do the side stroke because I couldn't get enough air. After we were done swimming laps, we kept alternating between the sauna and steam room and talking about everything we could think of. I think we were there for 2 1/2 hours.

I got home and got some things ready. My friend K. came over and we ate leftover veggie lasagna and bread and roasted garlic. Then we decorated the tree and had a wonderful talk and she got to meet Archie.

I don't think it's possible to ask for a better Sunday in December.

It appears that you were a participant in the perfect pre-Cristmas weekend! :)
We went to a couple of parties between anesthetics. A non-alcoholic party year; who'd-a-thought.

Kid ornaments are the best...especially when they are the worst :-)

Sounds like it actually was a perfect weekend! You deserve lots of those.

Wow... I know it's not, but your life sounds perfect right now! Good for you. Talking is key.

Awesome-sounding Sunday! I managed to have a nice one too-- brunch with my best friend, a Christmas party with my wife's family and a couple of great conversations with my son.

I don't have any ornaments he made as a youngster, but I do have a great drawing he made when he was four, inspired by his favorite movie, "Them," which was about giant ants attacking Los Angeles. I posted about it a few years back:
