Weekend Review {12/23}


Friday was a cluster fuck of a day.
I got barely any work tasks accomplished because of Teh German stress, not him personally, but the situation that I've been vague about.  I left work on a mission to go home and self-medicate with Xanax and vodka.  I didn't take any medications.

Instead, I did the laundry and walked the dogs with Teh PT Wife and snuggled with the dogs and then Teh German came home and we were talking for a bit and then Mom called and Teh German went upstairs to shower and then after my phone conversation, I went upstairs to get ready.. because despite all the stress of the day, we were still headed to Teh German's company holiday gathering at Poogan's Smokehouse.

I'll be honest, I almost asked Teh German if I had to go to his company party because I wasn't overly interested in dealing with the coworkers after the day I'd had.  But I ended up (wo)manning up and powering through it and the food was delicious and the company wasn't so bad and I didn't say anything inappropriate to anyone, which was a legitimate fear.

Additionally, the food was fucking delicious.  I'd been to Poogan's Porch before, but never Poogan's Smokehouse and I'll definitely be going back to the Smokehouse.  Dat shiz was delicious.

I ended up driving us home and lying to Teh German that Teh PT Fam was probably already in the bed when we got home since he was "well-lubricated" by that point and I didn't want to deal with the "overly-lubricated" Teh German.  I was already faced with a night of Twitchy McGee, so that was enough of a sacrifice in my mind.


Saturday morning, Teh PT Wife and I headed to Summerville to run the Hot Cocoa 5k.  I run this race for the hoodie they give that is valued more than the entry fee... and I'll admit that this was probably my last year participating, or at least until I need a new hoodie.  The race sells out pretty quickly and there are a LOT of kids.  The beginning of the race was so congested, it rivaled a Disney race going through the tunnels.  If you're not aware of this, just know it's a DISASTER.  Too many people, not enough space.  Some twatwaffle ran over the back of a woman's heels with her stroller when she was trying to pass her.  WTF?!?! 

After the race, we checked out the tents to free stuff, I considered lying to obtain a kid's medal because that's what I run for, and then Teh PT Wife put in a Starbucks order, we fetched it, then went to Dick's so I could get some new shoes, then by the hippy/healthy grocery store where I ended up buying so much shit (coffee, apples, and beer), then to brunch at First Watch.

yes, yes I did buy these lumberjack shoes.

When I got home, Teh German was, thankfully, up and moving.  I sorted through all my purchases and finally took a bath and then I took a nap.

In the evening, we went over to Teh PT House for socializing.  We were back home and in bed before 10.


It started raining on Sunday and hasn't stopped.  If it was colder, this would be an epic Christmas snow, but I live in Charleston, SC, so it's not.  Boo. 

We got up and had a slow start.  I managed to sit on my ass on the couch for 95% of my awake time on Sunday.  Meri snuggled with me for a significant portion of that, which always brings me joy.  I played my stupid Disney Emoji Blitz game and finished a book.

For dinner, I did chicken wings in the air fryer with salad.  We finished out the evening with Modern Family.


I debated starting a puzzle, but on Saturday Teh German had went to pick up the materials for the backsplash installation and it was all laid out on the dining room table, so there was no puzzle room...  Oh well.  Soon enough.  I'm definitely not shunning a good lazy weekend.

Today is the backsplash installation.
Wednesday is Christmas.
My office is closed on Thurs and Fri, which means teleworking all.week.long.
Please do be impressed that I got up at normal time this morning and showered and got ready like normal and then went downstairs for work things right away.  It is fabulous being able to start work so early and not having to deal with fuck-tards on the road and then I still work just as late in the afternoon, which means I can curb my hours on Friyay. 

We're still sorting through that huge news thing that I want to talk about, but I can't yet.  I want to make sure it's settled before I start jinxing it... because I'm not superstitious  but I'm a little stitious (5 pts if you know where that's from).

If I don't make it back here before Christmas, Merry Christmas, Gentle Readers.
