What a fun weekend…

The weekend went really well! Patrick came over on Saturday, and it was a lot of fun. One question Patrick had was whether Mom had gotten used to my being gone. My exact comment was, “Do you want to see how used to it she’s gotten? Come look at this.” And I showed him my old bedroom, which Mom totally redecorated, as I described earlier. Then Patrick, Sis, and I went to Mellow Mushroom in Charlottesville, where we split two pizzas amongst the three of us. One was a vegetarian pizza, with a pesto base, and lots of tomatoes, spinach, and mushrooms. Then the other was a cheese pizza with mozzarella and feta cheese. Really good stuff.

Then after Patrick left to go back to Harrisonburg, I kind of crashed myself. I slept on that futon Mom got. It was a futon. It’s firmer than mine, and Mom put a fitted sheet over the futon cover, since she claimed the texture of the cover would be uncomfortable to sleep on. I said don’t worry about it, since I would likely be too tired to care, but she insisted, and so it was. And when I went to sleep, I was indeed too tired to care. But it was a decent sleep, though it felt strange sleeping in my old bedroom on this strange new piece of furniture. Of course, I’m used to sleeping on a futon, though I only have to do that for one more week.

Meanwhile, today, I went shopping before going back. I had some odds and ends to get, so I went to my ex-Wal-Mart. Everyone was happy to see me, and happy that things were going so well in DC. So not only did I finally get a chance to restock my toothpaste and shampoo (couldn’t find what I liked at Target or Giant), but I also got a plastic table for the balcony. So now, on those nice nights, rather than sit at my desk, I can take the Lappy out on the balcony and get nice breezes while computing – when I’m not shooing bugs off of the screen, mind you.

And then the trip back was uneventful. Works for me.

So now I have to go iron. By the way, the offer has been made bigger – not only is the Key Bridge still for sale, but they’ve added all five spans of the 14th Street Bridge to the deal to sweeten the pot.
