It’s been almost two weeks since I last posted. It was bound to happen. There’s no real reason why I took so long to post. I guess it’s just because I never have anything to say. The kids are good, Deb is good and I am doing good. Work is also going well. I have no complaints. I go to work every day, come home every day and follow my set routine. Very little deviation from the usual. I think it was the 7th that Chris and I went to Pearl Street in Northampton to see Sevendust. That was fun. We decided not to wait 2-3 hours in the venue for Sevendust to come on and went to a local bar instead. The place had free pool and cheap food with a good atmosphere. We got into the venue as Sevendust was setting up and watched them play. I dropped Chris off and got home at a reasonable time. Even when I do go out, it’s still nothing crazy. I didn’t get drunk or stay out late at all.
The biggest thing going on right now is our plan to go to upstate New York for Thanksgiving. We haven’t done this in a long time (or ever as our current family) and we checked with everyone up there first. They’re happy to have us up there and I’m happy to go. We may not go every year but once in a while will be good. They don’t get to see much family aside from us, I don’t want them to forget they have other family. It should be fun.
Okay, I lied. It was not a really exciting weekend. It was the laziest, most uneventful weekend ever. The weather on Saturday was nice but both kids and Deb were not feeling well. On Friday night I went by Chris’ house and hung out by the fire in his back yard. We made s’mores and talked. His uncle was there and that guy is just a bit crazy but it was fun. Today was a lot colder and still everyone was under the weather (but me) and we stayed in. Deb made cinnamon rolls for breakfast yesterday, I did pancakes today. Tomorrow starts another week but I have Thursday off. I took it off because Chris and I are going to see Sevendust on Wednesday night at Pearl Street in Northampton. That should be fun.
I honestly can’t recall much of what has gone on the last few days. Friday night was the sleepover and family fun night. Saturday was just a day at home. On Sunday Scott Daniel had a birthday party at 1:00 and Alex had a Halloween party at 3:00. We were at the birthday party until a little after 2:00 and Alex’s Halloween party went until 7:00. Both kids had fun at their party and that ended the weekend. Monday was.. well, a Monday. What is there to say about it? I went to bed relatively early, woke up way too early and went to work. Take all that and repeat for today. Today I worked an hour late and I’m already (at 9:15 PM) thinking about going to bed. No baseball to watch and I’ve had a pretty bad headache since about 3:00 PM. I don’t get a lot of headaches and when I do, they don’t usually last this long. I’ll take something before bed.
The week was mostly busy, with the exception of Wednesday for some odd reason. That day was pretty quiet. Tonight we went to the elementary school for Family Fun Night. It was fun for the kids. Nothing too exciting but it was about the kids, not the parents. Arts and crafts and stuff like that. No plans for tomorrow yet but we’ll see what happens. Maybe we’ll go somewhere shopping as we do sometimes. We rarely buy anything substantial but we go anyway. Alex is having a sleepover tonight and she’s having fun.
Work was pretty slow today. It was a Wednesday, what can I say? I don’t know how people keep a diary or journal. What do you write about each day? I try to post on here every day but the week gets pretty mundane. I’ll think about some topics I can post about on here for tomorrow.
