My situation isn’t such that I can just run around fancy free, so I really relish the opportunities that I *do* get to spend more than a few late night hours out and about. Dinners are a rarity, but Friday night J and I got dinner and a tattoo and went to karaoke and had a fabulous time, despite my being entirely too chatty (sorry, baby!)
I spent Saturday with my kids and that night I got to meet an old friend of J’s and had the privilege of seeing his new band play their first gig. I loved hearing them perform the songs he wrote that I’ve been listening to for months and was reminded of what a talented guy he is. I mean, really. Technical difficulties were overcome with teamwork and charm. I think we all agreed in the end it made for a better show and nobody even fell off of any chairs!
I think the only thing I love better than going to bed and cuddling is waking up to cuddles and having no need to rush off. That’s even more rare than dinner, but Sunday was all lounging in bed til 11 and brunch with friends and day drinking before work. Hahaha! I hope there are many, many more weekends like this in my future.
