SU is home , chaos ensues...kidding. He had the best time while he as a part of the " Pro's From Dover" ( ok....watch the original " MASH"..it will make sense.) They consumed far too many adult beverages and chased the lil white one hither, thither and yon. Poor dude has worked his arse off this year and really needed the vacay. This is one of those things where you go " Uh oh, sense a pattern ." He is at the age with the rest of his posse that I have no fear of bad behavior . Hell....nude chick could show up waving her personal floatation devices aloft and they would be more po'd that she was in their line of sight. They are that predictable. I have managed to get all of his laundry done, the Katz are.." Who is that tall chap ?" and routines are resumed.
As for Moi, I got to do a lot of things that needed to be done, spent time with Gal Pals , actually found the bottom of the top drawer of the file cabinet and had some peace and quiet. I am always amazed at how much I enjoy the sound of utter and complete silence. I work 45 hours a week with about 150 people , and the din will at times be enough to make me cry at the absurdity of it. Love most of them...oh hell yeah...but. While I consider myself rather gregarious , I also have this loner quirk. I like being alone. I like the quiet of it. It's calming and for me , rather healthy. I can't, simply cannot be around others 24/7/365 . I cannot do it. I don't need to be entertained, I don't need to be busy all the time. The simple peace of sitting on the patio and watching the cat romp is pleasure enough for me. Yes there was fun to be had for me...getting a facial , nails and Ped....getting the peach fuzz waxed off the face...oh hell yeah . But also, sitting and reading a book with a fresh pot of coffee....working in the garden , writing letters to friends...gearing down for a moment to enjoy the moment....Bliss....pure Bliss.
Next up....the deck will be finally built......huzzah. I've wanted one since we moved into the house 18 years ago....I'm almost giddy..yeah..I know that is lame.
I hope everyone had/has a wonderful holiday weekend.
