Another weekend gone. They go so quickly sometimes. I suppose it only makes sense. We spend five days each week counting down to just two and before we know it, we’re back to Monday again.
Squeezed in some good stuff during my two days though, I think. I had some time to go out with Mark. It was bowling night. And we left early to meet up with some of the others from the league. We ate, talked and laughed with friends before heading to the lanes. And bowling was good. Mark bowled a turkey in one of his games (three strikes in a row). I got a turkey in the tenth frame of each of two of my games. Actually, I got three turkeys, if you count the one I had in practice. Ironically, our final scores weren’t what we’d hoped they would be, considering all the strikes. But we had fun, which is always the real goal anyway.
I had some time with Jake. He let me take him bowling on Sunday afternoon. I love that he still lets me do that. It gives me a chance to get him talking, as much as it’s possible to get him talking, which isn’t much. But I asked a bunch of questions about how things are going at his job and soon he was filling me in on the happenings there. He seems pretty happy with what he’s doing for now, which is good. We had a good time bowling together too. We played three games. He beat me twice and somehow I beat him once, which is pretty impressive considering he’s a pretty damn good bowler. Way better than me.
After Jake and I came home from bowling, I had some time with Kacey. She ran errands with me and we made a special stop to pick up some coffee for the Keurig. (Oh, how we love our Keurig coffee maker!) Kacey’s pick was Chocolate Glazed Donut coffee. I went for the Butter Toffee flavor. We made another stop for some other necessities and we talked all through the store. I asked if she had plans for the evening or if she might be staying home. She replied, “I dunno. Do you want me to stay home?” I said it would be nice to have her home for dinner for a change and so she agreed. Later she chatted with me in the kitchen while I made a pan of lasagna. She’s so easy to be with. I can see us in the coming years, when she’s home from college or later when she’s made a life of her own, still getting together to shop, or cook or bake, and talking non-stop the entire time.
Later Sunday evening, I even had some time with Brad, though it had to be by phone. That’s okay. I’ll take what I can get. He called home just to let us know he was back at school after spending the weekend with Heather at her parents’ house. He and I have been communicating frequently lately due to some jeans I ordered and had shipped to him at school. The shipment never arrived and it’s been nearly a month since I ordered them. The tracking status continually states that the shipment is “in transit.” Brad was making fun of me today because last week I sent him a text asking if the jeans had arrived yet. When he replied that they had still not arrived, I sent another text saying, “What the frick? I’m calling that company and getting my money back!” He thought my use of the word “frick” was the funniest thing ever and now won’t let me hear the end of it. It was good to hear his voice, even if he was making fun of me. And he always responds in kind to my “I love you” when we end our phone calls which always makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
So another weekend is over, but we didn’t just pass the time. We spent it well.
