The spinach and artichoke dip was outstanding.

Had a lovely weekend with The Boy. We intended to do many, many things this weekend, but didn't seem to get anything done except lie around and watch bad reality TeeVee. We did venture out in the evening hours on Friday and Saturday to have dinner and drinks (which was wonderful on Saturday - for those in the Long Island area, F.H. Riley's in Huntington? REALLY good.) I believe i just plugged a restaurant. Hmm.

This weekend was like all good single-people weekends should be: without kids. Kids just screw up everything, don't they? When i say things like that, i find myself wondering why The Boy decided to bring me into his life. He could have very easily chosen a partner who has the 'mom gene' to help take care of and enjoy his children, and yet? He didn't. He chose me. Sure, his kids aren't particularly bad, but they're kids none the less and give me the heebie-jeebies. Yes, yes they do. Sticky fingers and pizza-smears all over the kitchen table. Toothpaste crust on MY towel. And we have them every weekend but one per month. This was that one weekend.

So we made great plans to get out of the house during the sunshine hours. Maybe go for a drive, go shopping, go see a movie - anything, didn't matter. Just something we wouldn't normally do with the kids in the house. Did we do any of it? No. We didn't even vaccuum like we said we would. Just lazed around in our jammies for most of it. Dissappointing? Yeah, but i think we both needed it.

Here's to hoping i get to see sunshine again before next month.


  • You had a weekend that suited you both, and what better weekend would that be? Glad to see you had a nice relaxing jammies-kind-of-time. GOOD for you!

  • I see no problem with that weekend.

    Perhaps because I also had it.
