Weekend catchup…

I started this post on 8/5/08, but thought about discarding almost as soon as I started, but the “Auto Draft Save” managed to keep it active… Frankly, I was a bit out of sorts (read: grumpy and slightly depressed) when I generated the heading…

MC’s nephew came out, with her parents, over the weekend. He stayed with us, while they stayed elsewhere. Since the nephew was coming, I figured I would set up the Wii… of course, once the system was set up, the itch to get a couple of games became very hard to resist (which, of course, led me to get two games… but they were used, and actually togehter cost less than most of the other “used” games that I was also interested in… (side note: I think it’s hilarious – and stupid – that the price difference between a “new” vs. a “used” copy of a game is only $5… seriously… why? Where’s the deal there?)

The writing has again stalled… my hopes to finish the script last week were unfulfilled. I had thought about submitting my revision/new pages to “my” writing group, but did not get them up with the requisite lead time to make sure people could read them for the meeting (last night).

Sunday, MC and I drove out to Durham to go to one of the malls there – mainly to go to a jeweler. We had gotten our rings while in Vegas, and had them sized shortly after our return (sometime in March, I think). The Engagement ring had a stone lose, so MC switched to what is going to be the band (which also has stones in it). We went to drop off the Engagement ring, and while we were there we had the other one looked at. It turns out that both of MC’s rings had lose stones, and I will need to take mine when we go back to get her rings, to make sure my ring is fine. Of course, the side effect of the trip was to take some advantage of the “Tax Free Weekend” that we had, and we each got a few things – me mostly pants, for work, but still… there was more than just the ring, so it worked out okay.

Then, there was the dentist. Monday. We had gone for a regular check-up back in June… it my first trip to a dentist in several years, and I was told there would need to be some work done… cavities, and several of them. Monday was my first visit to start the process, and yesterday my mouth was still a little sore when trying to eat. Today, it is my jaw that’s still a bit sore (from where the needles went in to inject the pain killers)… and I think that was a big part of my grumpy state yesterday…

Of course, there is also the fact that MC has not been feeling well for the last couple of days (even having to stay home yesterday), so I’ve had that playing with my mind a bit…

I didn’t really want to put most of this out there, since a lot of it is “darker” stuff, and I don’t like putting the “dark” stuff out… but the consolation here, is that it is a slice of life… that the ups and downs are all part-and-parcel of the whole experience… So there it is, thr brief update of the weekend…
