Over the Weekend

I spent the weekend in Connecticut; Aunty S and Uncle B asked me to puppy-sit so they could go away for the night. It turns out the Inn they stayed at was only 5 minutes away from my apartment so it’s almost like we house swapped. But if we really had house swapped, they would have got the short-end of the deal. Their house has cable, plenty of food and a comfy bed for me to sleep on. My apartment has none of the above.

I drove down Friday after work. It was like old-times when I used to live there and would spend an hour and half in the car commuting to and from work. I met them for dinner and drinks at some of the places I used to visit often, but hadn’t been in months. It was nice. I had a tasty taco salad and then later a delish glass of wine. And the wine bar had Jameson/Bailey’s cupcakes on display so I took one home to enjoy. Mmm…

They left Saturday morning and I hung out with my puppy cousins Reny and Otis. We walked. We napped. We watched a Sex and the City marathon. It was a wonderfully lazy day.

Sunday was not quite as nice. Dogs woke me up at 6 and then again at 8. I fully intended to make myself a cup of coffee and start the day when I let them out at 8, but I accidently locked myself out of the house. Big sigh. I checked all the windows and doors, and I was definitely locked out. There was nothing I could do but wait for them to get home–which they did at 11:30. What a freaking waste of a morning!

I helped with some dinner prep and then ran a few errands before coming back to the house for a mini-Thanksgiving-in-March. Gram and Gramps came and so did Uncle B’s sister Deb. On real Thanksgiving, Aunty S ended up with two turkeys and didn’t have occasion to cook up the second one until this weekend. So they all dined on turkey and I enjoyed a plate full of side dishes, just like Thanksgiving in November.

Despite the lock-out incident it was a great weekend. I love being with my family. They’re funny and loving and just easy to be around.

On a different note, I’m sorry about my lack of posts in the last couple months. My blog is having an identity crisis. I started it as a way to document my move. And now I’m moved. So I’m not sure what direction to take it in. But you can help, loved one. Leave me a comment and tell me what do you want to read about.

I will tell you that in less than 2 weeks my bestie will be here in Mass with me and we’re going to have a touristy, shopping-filled, whirlwind tour of New England. You’ll probably hear from me again before then, but just in case, now you have something to look forward to.

Until next time,

    Well, since I’m terrible about picking up the phone and calling people, I love your blog the way it is. I love reading about your daily life and silly adventures. It’s never boring!
