I feel like I did so much stuff this weekend but then at the same time I feel like I did nothing. On Saturday Sym and I went to a birthday party for one of the daycare kids, which was fun/funny. She was turning 4, and it’s been a long time since I’ve been to a party full of little kids and their parents- Sym’s parties nowadays are just her friends and a lot of shrieking. I guess I’m going to have to do it all over again though!
Immediately afterwards I dropped Sym at her friend’s birthday party (I assume for some of the aforementioned shrieking) and then met up with two of my sisters to hang out and go for dinner. It was really nice; I hadn’t seen either of them in YEARS. After they left Taylor and I took the dogs to the park and then watch right up to the penultimate episode of the last season of the X-Files before we both got too tired and fell asleep. Before midnight too, we are so cool.
On Sunday I had to go pick up more glitter for banners since I was totally out of a bunch of colours I needed. Of course I had to stop on the way to the craft store and buy some adorable stripey baby pants, and I had to stop on the way back to buy a fuzzy cozy teddy bear baby suit. I literally cannot resist buying cute baby things, IT’S LIKE A DISEASE. I also bought a sweet little impractical creamy-white cardigan and I WANTED to get some amazing white & silver hightop sneakers but Taylor put the kibosh on those (he’s kind of a buzzkill). FYI the pants and the cardigan were both also available in grey so I’m like, breaking out or something.
After I got all the cute baby shopping out of my system Taylor and I watched the series finale and FINALLY put the X-Files to bed. The finale kind of sucked, tbh, like the last few episodes wrapped up some plot threads (sort of) and then the finale was basically a clips show? All the old characters (even the dead ones) got to come back and do a little expository monolgue complete with flashback clips, and then the ending seemed rushed and unsatisfactory. (If you haven’t seen it I tried not to be to spoilery here, but the show’s been done for ten years so if I was then DEAL WITH IT, I guess.) Anyway now we just have to watch the 2008 movie featuring XHIBIT and you know I’m excited for that.
Now I should be back to work, but in a burst of cleansing synchronicity ALL MY CLIENTS ARE STAYING HOME TODAY. That’s right: SURPRISE LONG WEEKEND. I have a whole glorious day off to work on the half-dozen glitter banners I need to make this week and (hopefully) start going through the closet in what’s going to be the baby’s room. Plus it’s raining. So it’s not really a relaxing day off, but I’ll take what I can get.
