Oh man is it way too late for me to be away. *sigh* I so should have been in bed an hour ago, but this day has just gotten away from, much like my weekend in general. It was an outstanding weekend, and I’m going to be paying for it tomorrow, much like Sweet Husband is paying for it today.
Yesterday we spent the afternoon and evening with our friends Jamie and Scott, at her daddy’s 80th birthday party crawfish boil. The crawfish boil is an annual event, and to be honest, SH and I had been wondering if somehow we’d missed it this year, and then I got the call. The crawfish are always plentiful – we brought home a huge pan of them that SH is going to be peeling and putting into some fettuccine Alfredo tomorrow night – as are the huge crab legs and shrimp. Jamie’s mom always makes gumbo, but I never get around to eating any of it because by the time I get done with the shellfish, I’m so incredibly stuffed that it doesn’t even begin to be funny. SH says that the crawfish this year were easily the best he’s had all year long.
Once we’re done eating, the drinking and catching up begins. I find it hard to believe that it’s been a year since we last did this – an entire year since we’ve seen Jamie and Scott. It’s ridiculous because we don’t live that far apart. We have to figure out a way to make that different. We have so much fun together. We have plans to get together on the beach this summer and come back to our house for food and fun.
We sat around and talked until about 10:30, passing around jars of apple pie and downing beers. SH and I had originally planned to stay the night, but I wasn’t much in the mood to be totally pissed last night. I think really I just wasn’t in the mood to drink beer. So SH and I made our way home, where sometime in the night, he woke up with a very upset tummy.
He’s spent the day in bed – he thinks something he ate must have not agreed with him. I think that perhaps he’s not used to drinking that much anymore. Regardless, he’s been sleeping off whatever is making him feel awful while I’ve been cleaning. Recall last Monday that I said I really needed to clean the house? Well. I got started today. The Sner will be here in a week and a half. It was time for my house to get put to rights.
I did not get as much done today as I wanted to, but I did manage to get three rooms in the house deeply cleaned. Everything is in its place and shiny. Several bags of trash have made their way to the curb. There is still so very much more to do, but I’ve made a great dent. I think that I’ve got one – maybe two – more loads of laundry to do. Now, SH will have some homework to do in the next week. Both inside the house and out. It’s OK, though. He always comes through.
It’s been a long day. And a really long weekend. Tomorrow is going to suck because I’ll be lucky to get in the bed before midnight tonight and in order to be at work on time in the morning, I’ll need to be out of the bed by 4:00 at the latest. I feel like my life is starting to be back in some sort of order, so it’s worth it.
How was your weekend? I hope you had a great time with people you love.
