So I missed the concert I was expecting to go to on Wednesday, because when I was looking up details on Sunday, it turned out that the date had moved since I put it on my calendar, and it was that night and already sold out! Curses! But only kinda; my disappointment was mitigated by the fact that (1) I hadn't had time to get any anticipation built up, and (2) I was really, really tired, and I did not mind having at least some downtime in the weekend.|
Things have been hectic lately. My friend Mike from high school came up to Boulder for lunch on Wednesday. And then on Thursday, my Mom & Larry were passing through town on the way to the mountains to go fishing for the weekend, so we had dinner (Smashburger) with them. Then I went of to Chris's for Games Night. (There were only four of us, so we played a game of Sentinels with the one-mini-villain-per-player setup that seemed to be going only okay for a long while but then came together very quickly at the end.)
On Friday, we got dinner at the Mondoplex with Douglas and then watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which was excellent; just as good as the first one, in my book. So that was lovely.
The weekend was taken up with dealing with bills, and backing up data, and getting my new phone to actually work properly (turns out my cellular data plan got switched off when updating plans) and other such chores. I also got in a nice long visit with Grandma on Saturday evening. She is dissatisfied with her current housekeeper, who is nosy (or as Grandma puts it, "a prowler"), not good at following instructions, and who adds knick-knacks and doilies to the house. ("You don't have any table scarves for the side tables!" Like my grandmother, having lived in that house for well in excess of half a century, doesn't have it all set up exactly how she wants it?) I told Grandma that it sounds like she means well, but doesn't have a lick of sense. I also got to hear stories about pigs and cows from when Grandma was a little girl in Oklahoma.
Plus of course there's also wedding planning and trip planning and trying to get a bunch of stuff done at work in between all the cloud vendor meetings. But things are good; I'm a little stressed, but mostly just busy.
