We had a good weekend! I got a little writing done. I’m still climbing out of the plot hole, but I’m making solid progress. The good news is I’ve been able to read (books other than my own) a bit more than I have been, and I’m delighted about that! It feels like more progress. I read right through the third book in the Fifty Shades series. I only liked the first one, and was bored by the second so I never read the third. But I had a professional reason for reading it, and was surprised that I had the concentration level to sail right through it (still not my favorite, but I can see why others love it–to each his own). And now I’m reading a thriller that I’m able to focus on too. I suspect this is a half and half thing: Half from the treatments making my pain more manageable, and half from my brain slowly learning to cope with the tinnitus. Our brains are amazing if we give them the time and training to adjust
Father’s Day was really nice. Two of our sons were out-of-town, and called Wizard (he was happy with that). We went to breakfast, then took Maggie and went to visit Baby Slayer, and his mom and dad. We had so much fun! Wizard and CPA Boy picked up some lunch, and when they came home, Special K offered to take Baby Slayer so I could eat.
I may have pouted.
She took one look at my expression, cracked up, and said, “That’s not happening, is it?”
My daughter-in-law, totally gets me But that’s okay, I get her. Later, she took Baby Slayer and he went right to sleep on her. She showed me, and said, “Sometimes he just wants his mom.” She meant that in a sharing-bonding, we’re both moms now, way. Especially since I’ve been telling her that this would happen. They also gave Wizard and Baby James matching shirts, and a gave Wizard gift cards for the toll road. Trust me, it may not sound like an exciting gift, but it’s awesome present for Wizard. It’s both so he can get to his hobby easier once he’s able to do it again, and to see his grandson, and sons, easier. A very thoughtful gift! He was really touched.
Maggie was such a good girl too, despite stealing Baby Slayer’s tiny pair of rolled up socks from the shelf below his changing table. She’s a stealthy little sock thief But that’s about the extent of her mischief. Maggie’s just an easy dog for the most part.
That was my weekend, how was yours???
