So...nobody had to use the portable potties. THANK goodness! The compromised water main was repaired by the time we got back to school on Thursday morning. The bathrooms were all nice and clean and the only reminder of the hullabaloo was that the water fountains were off limits...bacteria or some such nuisance.
I've stayed true to my promise to leave work AT work for the weekend. I woke up around 7:15 a.m., enjoyed a couple of hours of coffee and reading the newspaper and a few magazines and catalogues that had piled up...paid some bills for mother and Ned, and decided to make a pedicure appointment. Did a little shopping...nothing spectacular. Cleaned all of my make-up brushes...gathered some things for Goodwill...watched a couple of episodes of Say Yes to the Dress-Atlanta. Merciful days...the Atlanta version is SO much better than the other one at Kleinsfeld's where most of the brides look like they should be on Jersey Shore.
Sue called...then Meg called. I tried to call Lorelai but she didn't answer...nothing like your kids screening your calls. (By the way, who is paying for those cell phones? Wait, that would be your parents so you might want to answer sometime.)
Deer season opened on August 15 and Hank has been about to die to go hunting so he went over to the farm this morning. He picked up Ned and let him spend the middle part of the day with him before he went to sit in the stand. Ned loves the farm. It's dark now and I haven't gotten a victory call so I'm imagining that the "big one" kept his distance this afternoon. I reckon Hank will roll in in a little while.
In the meantime, I think the perfect ending to my relaxing day would be a nice hot bubble bath.
Sorry I don't have anything spectacularly interesting to share...considering that I'm still in the throes of the start of the new school year, a quiet weekend at home with no work IS spectacular!!
