We’re almost done with the move. Almost done fixing up the townhouse. Almost done with our wish list for the new house. The big party is on Saturday and we are tying up loose ends this week. We finally got the remaining desk piece, assembled that, and got the front room all in order. I can’t even list all the things we’ve done (and all the money we’ve spent… ouch) on this house, and we haven’t even lived here for three months.
In addition to the party on Saturday, my entire family is coming into town and staying for a few days. It’s going to be great. We have a real guest bed in the basement and a secondary area to sleep (on a futon) in the spare room upstairs.
Evidently I’ve all but quit blogging and taking photos/videos. We’ll see if I can get back into the swing once everything calms down here. It has been non-stop work every weekend for three months now.
I took Henry to the hospital to get some blood drawn for a routine test on Friday. I won’t bore you with the details, but after two hours at the hospital and bandages on two of Henry’s arms and one of his heels, I left the hospital without the requisite amount of blood having being drawn. Incompetence abounds. He had a lot of blood drawn as a newborn at that hospital and they did a great job. I don’t get it. I’m also pretty tired of the medical profession dropping its collective jaw to the ground when you dare to go against anything they say. Dear doctors and hospital workers, you work for me. I am not your subordinate. Thanks.
Everything has been a whirlwind of shopping and calling people to fix various things in this house. It seems like forever since we had a weekend with no plans. Two Saturdays ago we went downtown to see Jim Gaffigan with another couple. In my opinion, he wasn’t nearly as funny as the last time we saw him. Every comedian eventually spends 50% of their set talking about their kids. Also we were in the balcony on row QQ and it got quite hot up there! It was still a good time, and hey, we didn’t get lost this time. This previous Saturday we went to the Birchmere with Jaime’s parents to see Gaelic Storm. We’ve done this several times before, and as always, it was a great show at a great venue. It’s part traditional Irish sound, part modern. Part music, part comedy (in a sense). Just a really good band to see live. Family-friendly show at a family-friendly venue, too.
Supposed to be a nice day on Saturday weather-wise. Here’s hoping everything goes as planned.
