A standard weekend

At midnight on Friday, I was standing in line with my sister to buy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We elected to forgo the Borders experience for a less traditional (read: shorter line) outlet and we were back at home and in our beds (I was sleeping, Meg was reading) by 12:30 pm.

I’ve actually only read the first book in the series, which I picked up right after I saw the first movie. It didn’t do much for me (I blame it on my just having seen the movie), but I’ll eventually give the Harry Potter books another try.

I made Mom and Meggie baked oatmeal for breakfast on Sunday morning, substituting the shredded apple, which the recipe calls for, with banana.

Mom was impressed. I knew she’d like the baked oatmeal – a mix of many of her favorite foods and flavors – but I didn’t expect for her to purr right at the table. I was very pleased with myself, of course, because I will never tire of pleasing my mother.

Meg picked the banana out, finished her bowl, and returned to reading Harry Potter.

One of the most annoying parts of Monday mornings is how messy my desk is when I get in. Every employee who works over the weekend seems to think that it is his/her responsibility to put anything they do not/cannot deal with on my desk.

I went to the bar with Colin and one of his buddies on Saturday night.

Colin has some seriously fun, entertaining, hilarious friends.

Yesterday’s soccer game was way out in the boonies and it didn’t start until 7:00 pm. By the time Meg and I stopped in A2 for dinner with one of her roommates, I dropped Meg off at her car, filled Stella with gas and drove to my apartment, it was after 11:00 pm. And I had to unpack my car, stare at a sink full of dirty dishes with distaste, realize that I had virtually no food in the house and get ready for bed.

I didn’t get enough sleep.
