Out of Time

Sometimes everything happens all at once! I don't lead a life--I follow it around.
    Since I posted last:

  • I worked one double shift and four single shifts at the restaurant. Pretty much every day with no time off for good behavior.
  • I helped G. retile the entrance way to the house.
  • I cleaned the entire house from attic to basement. Anyone who knows me knows I'm not exactly a Cleaning Queen. I scrubbed down the ole' homestead because . . .
  • We had a good friend from NYC and his new boyfriend that stayed over the weekend at our house.
  • We had other friends over for cocktails and conversation on Saturday night. The festivities lasted 'til after 4AM.
  • G. and I cooked a humongous breakfast for our houseguests and also G.'s family (father, mother, sister, brother and nephew) Sunday morning.
    Some general observations regarding the above:

  • Boy, I'm tired.
  • When old friends visit it's like going back in time. They see you the way you used to be and you see them that way too.
  • It's not easy scrambling a dozen eggs at once.
  • Serving people at the restaurant is work, so I bitch.
    Serving guests in my home is a most welcome task, so I do it without complaint.
  • "The more, the merrier" is a hoary (which means "old" by the way, so get your mind out of the gutter) cliche, but that doesn't make it any less true. Friendship shared is joy doubled.
  • With all that was going on, posting on here had to go on the back burner.
    I'll try not to let it happen again.
