I think I haven’t had a proper, you know, blog post, for more than a month.
And what a momentous month it’s been, too!
The MD and I had our actual one-year anniversary, versus all the monthaversaries we’d celebrated heretofore. It was swell. We checked Choobie in to the daycare for the weekend, and went to the Planetarium, and stayed at a little B&B in the West End so we could do stuff in the city and wander home after on foot or a cheap cab. We went to dinner at the place we first had dinner together, and then we went to see a friend’s band, which was fun.
Next morning we got up for breakfast, which I can’t remember at all what it was. We went to the Art Gallery and saw lots of Art. We went to the movies and saw Duplicity, which wasn’t really very good. We went back to the room and relaxed for a bit and then got dressed and went to The Sylvia to watch the sunset from the bar and have a delicious cocktail. Then we went to l’Altro Buca, which is the replacement restaurant for Parkside’s location, and that was extremely good, of course. Then we stumbled home…no, we took a cab, my shoes of extreme cuteness were not suitable for drunken stumbling.
Next day was gorgeous and sunny and we went to Science World on the way back to the homestead. it was a v nice weekend, we both enjoyed it
Since then, the MD’s Stuff has arrived. There has been a lot of moving of stuff, throwing out of stuff, taking stuff to the storage, and related stuff.
This past weekend (13 monthaversary!) we went to Seattle, to see the long-awaited My Bloody Valentine show (YES! it was AWES!). We also got to have dinner with Peter and Cecilie and their friend Richard, and it was lots of fun. We may be heading south again to see Metric next month, depends on a couple of things.
So aside from absorbing stuff and stuff like that, the MD’s parents are coming to town for a visit in just over a week. Concurrently, my parents will be down for a weekend (OH NOES! PARENTAL SUMMIT!) We have restaurant reservations already although we haven’t decided everything that will be going on. They’ll be staying with us so there is some amount of cleaning/arranging of stuff. this weekend we’re organizing the laundry room. Which excites me more than I would have thought it would.
