This weekend was busy as anything, and I’m feeling it this morning- my body is crying out for sleep, so much so that I was tempted to pull over and kip on the side of the highway on the way back from dropping Damien off at school this morning!
After school on Friday Damien went to the mall with his friends and his new girlfriend. That’s right- Babe4 has made an appearance- and he didn’t even tell me! He says she has black hair and blue eyes and she’s home schooled… is it a good thing that they’re not at school together? Well- I think it is… After fetching him from the mall- which resulted in another “all my friends…” argument because I fetched him straight after work instead of allowing him to stay all evening- we got a couple of DVD movies and take out (I had a burger, Damien had pizza) and Damien went to bed at 10pm while I stayed up till about 1am! I finally got to see “Murder By Numbers” which has been on my to-see list for quite some time.
Saturday morning was Damien’s gymnastics competition, then we had lunch at the Wimpy with my folks and da Bruvva and his little entourage (including their new puppy- a tiny little black and white thing rather ambitiously named Proximo) to try and cheer Damien up a little. Then we went home to some housework and dishes and generally cleaning up and such. We went to a friend of mine for supper and a movie on Saturday night, left there around 1am and then I got home and got involved in a book resulting in a 3am bedtime! Talk about losing track of time!?!
Sunday morning I overslept- not hearing any of my alarms while my phone was charging in the living room, so we didn’t make it to church… very naughty! We went to a nearby mall instead. I bought two skirts last week and when I got home they were too big. I wanted to exchange them but they had none smaller so I returned them for a credit on my account instead. As I was exiting the returns department my eye was caught and held by a gorgeous pair of pale (faux) suede boots and I remembered that, I have NO winter shoes! Apart from three other pairs of boots that is. So I bought myself three pairs of shoes because- you know- I just canNOT go to a mall and come home without buying anything… I also bought Damien a gorgeous book on fossils to ease my selfish conscience. Then we went to see X-Men 3. It was BRILLIANT! Truly fabulous! Apart from my popcorn box jumping right out of my hands and messing EVERYWHERE (providing the people around us with a good laugh and a story to tell at home) Damien and I both thoroughly enjoyed the movie. We’ve been waiting for it and we were SO NOT disappointed. As sequels go, I’m usually a little wary- and we would have seen it anyway- but this was truly worth the price of admission and then some. I won’t say too much so as not to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. And of course Hugh Jackman is just SUCH a dish! Sunday night we went to sister B and co for supper- pizza- and then sister B and I spent the remainder of the evening doing our hair and nails and enjoying my foot-spa. VERY relaxing. And yet another latish night for me…

One in three is not a statistic - one in three is a crying shame.
