It was a pretty normal weekend, I guess. I spent Saturday morning cleaning, then we went food shopping in the afternoon, and later we went to the mall to buy hand soap at Bath & Body Works (seriously, never pay full price for that soap, it is always going on sale). Sunday I did laundry and got GG to help me fold it, finished cleaning the house, and played in a concert that afternoon at a retirement community. This place has a huge new theater, but hardly anyone comes to the concerts – I think probably 1/3 of the audience had come with band members, and the place was still almost empty! The clapping was pitiful. Also, at one point our director mixed up his pages and announced the wrong song. I was all set to go with it, but someone corrected him, so he went back and announced the right piece. Then he would check with us on the order for the rest of the concert. He’d announce them like, “Our next number, I’m told, is ___.”
GG’s parents came over yesterday to drop off some stuff and see Bugs, the stray cat, but it was late morning and I don’t think he was back yet from wherever he goes at night. I went out to feed him when I got home from my concert, and he was on his usual perch in the garage – on top of a box on the workbench at the back of the garage. I put a fleece blanket there for him to sleep on. I got GG to come out with me and make a little video of me feeding him, which I put on YouTube, though it’s a bit dark (no lights in the garage). I put the first dose of monthly flea treatment on him on Saturday, and I think it’s working already – he just feels very soft, no bug-based lumps in his fur. Then we ordered Chinese food, I didn’t get to watch my usual Sunday cartoons because of that “24″ movie, but I did catch “Forbidden Love: Geisha,” which I really didn’t like that much and it certainly wasn’t as interesting or thought-provoking as the polygamy one.
Speaking of polygamy (haha, not really), I’ve been reading a lot about the LDS church, both good and bad, and have been doing a lot of thinking about religion – which is pretty funny, since I am not religious at all, and really believe in science with a dash of fate, but that’s another post for another time.
Between the holiday and my WFH day, I only have 2 days in the office this week. Yay! Our holiday is going to be kind of mixed up because of everyone’s schedules, so I might not have any Thanksgiving on Thursday, but I will definitely get at least one dinner this week (on Friday). Also, we’re probably going to get a new TV on Black Friday! Any last-minute recommendations?
