Saturday was fun! I went to Fashion Island in Newport Beach (It’s a very upscale area. and not my usual stomping grounds) to meet Middle Son’s finance and her mom for lunch and some shopping. Lunch was wonderful, although I think I talked too much I was just in a mood to overshare, I think, plus I can talk nonstop about my sons. But his fiance and her mom are both lovely, intelligent and fun women so they made me very comfortable. After that, we headed over to a store to do a little shopping for dresses for the moms. We didn’t find anything, but now I have a good idea what to Fiance would like, what her color palette is and how formal she’d like us to be, which should make finding a dress not too difficult. I enjoyed the day and am really excited about their wedding in October.
Saturday night, Maggie and I were upstairs watching our veterinarian shows while Wizard watched his sports channels when I heard Wizard talking, laughing and another voice I couldn’t quiet make out. I’m thinking, oh shoot, did someone come over? Cause I’d washed my face, had my glasses on (I don’t care about that) and put on my PJ’s, (NO ONE NEEDS TO SEE THAT!) But nope, it wasn’t anyone in our house. It was Baby Slayer and his dad on Skype showing Grandpa that he could grab his toys and hold them all by himself.
LOLOL! Honestly, I was cracking up. Baby Slayer looked cute and happy and it’s a milestone for sure, but Wizard was really amusing me at his absolute excitement. He’s so smitten by that boy
Sunday, I worked. I finally climbed out of the plot ditch. I’m in the scene I’ve been itching to write, but now I’m second guessing my decisions and driving myself crazy. Of course, this normal for me, and probably a good sign. At least I’m writing again! However I’m limiting my writing hours, so I’ll have to finish that scene today. I may write on the wall over my desk TRUST YOURSELF AND QUIT SECOND GUESSING EVERY FREAKING DECISION! Just push through the last hundred or so pages, finish the book and fix it all later.
And lastly, I bought some bubbles to blow outside and see if Maggie will chase them. I saw a dog in the park doing it, and thought, well that looks like something Maggie would like. She loves chasing bugs that hop around, so it made sense to me. I came home all excited, took Maggie out back and blew some bubbles.
She hid behind me the entire time, totally confused by the alien beings floating around the backyard.
Yep, nailed it. Sigh.
That was my weekend, how was yours?
