    Heehee.
    Yesterday I read in David's journal that he stopped after 'only three'.
    I always feel like I am really stepping out if I have a second glass, so it made me realize how different folks can be in how they view alcohol.
    And then I come here, and see your 4th glass rule.
    I just had to laugh.

    Umm no. Not at all. He would be totally horrified at the mere thought. I just had memories of a boyfriend that I had absolutely no desire to take up with again, but who did take me out for coffee once or twice afterwards. DD has one she occasionally has coffee with too.

    Having said that, I haven't been doing too well today. Stupid peppermint patties. Hubby has promised to stop bringing them home.

    I meant a three-some with chocolate. You at one end of a bar, hubby at the other, meeting in the middle. Heehee.

    Um, the long weekend.
    There was wine, booth burger (bun-less) booth ice cream, hot tub, moving boxes, more wine, more packing, deep fried wonton wrappers, home rolled sushi, Pad Thai, more wine...

    ~~~~

    Tuesday
    I took University Son shopping. He was in desperate need of jeans and T-shirts. I also had to buy my Daughter a new lunch bag 'cause when my sisters were over helping me clean out the laundry room they threw hers out. (See - that's the 2nd time that I've thrown out something and someone asks for it the VERY NEXT DAY! And people wonder WHY I have a hard time de-cluttering)

    Wednesday
    My Father in Law called around 8am. My 83 year old MiL fell on Monday. Tuesday she was really sore (could barely move) but their doctor wasn't in and they wanted to WAIT until they could call him to see what they should do. Can you BELIEVE it?? So my FiL wanted to know if I could come over to help them, in-case the doctor thought they should go to the hospital. OF COURSE I went over! He had to wait till about 9:30 until the doctor's office answered the phone. Meanwhile my MiL can't get out of bed, 'cause it hurts too much. Of course the doctor said go for x-rays. I convinced him to call the ambulance 'cause there was NO way we could get her safely down the stairs (I don't know HOW they got her UP the stairs) Of course, she had to get dressed before they came...The ambulance guys carried her downstairs in a lift chair and took her to the hospital. We followed in the car. FiL stopping to buy LIGHT BULBS on the way.

    Really. Light bulbs.

    They x-rayed her hips. No breaks or fractures, just pulled muscles in her groin. They helped us load her into the car and we went home. On the way my FiL actually asked her if she wanted to go straight home or if she wanted to stop at the restaurant for lunch! Can you BELIEVE it???

    University Son met us at the house to help her get inside. We had 3 steps to go up. A man on each side and I had to bend down and lift up her leg for each step 'cause she couldn't lift it. They'd borrowed a friend's 4 wheel walker and she sat in it once we were inside the door.

    Later in the afternoon we brought over a spare twin bed and set it up for her in the living room.

    Parents.

    Thursday
    Ex College Son (still gotta come up with a name) brought home 37 boxes from the grocery store. I packed 8 this morning. This afternoon my Farmer and I went over to the new house and painted the old rough basement walls. The walls sucked up the paint. It took FOREVER. We are not done, but my back is. I have a chiropractor appointment tomorrow morning.

    Tonight I went to a "audition" for a local playhouse. For a non-acting job. The director is a good friend, we'd actually worked in the same video production company together. Anyway. I am now the Stage Manager. Another good friend, artist and past member of the same production company is the Art Director. The play is in December. It's called "My Son is Crazy - But Promising" by Tim Kelly.

    I know I don't have time right now for this, the Director knows that I will be unavailable for the next 2 weeks but she's excited that I'm going to be involved. I'm excited about it too. I'm WAY past due for a creative "outlet"

    Oy vey. Different priorities, but lightbulbs? Really?

    My favorite story of this variety came from my neighbor who thought he was having a heart attack, so he drove himself to the emergency room (!) and on the way, decided to get a cheeseburger (!!) because he didn't think they would let him eat anything good for a while if he WAS having a heart attack (he wasn't, luckily).

    Glad nothing was broken. That is always such a concern as people get older. But non-breaks sometimes take even longer to get over, it seems. And with no cast to 'help out'.

    Good job on all this packing and clearing. You are a MACHINE!
