Here we go again…

On Friday, it was 80 degrees for the high. Today? It was 50 with a low of 27.

This weather is damn stupid.

And of course whenever the temp goes up, the allergies flare up. It’s getting really old. We’re supposed to have an arctic front by Thursday and the high will be somewhere around, oh, 35 or so. Joy oh joy. There has been nothing seasonal about the weather this winter, that’s for sure.

The weekend was good. Had my RWA meeting on Saturday. It was kind of strange running the meeting, I have to admit. I would forget at times that I was… you know, in charge. hehe Our guest speaker was fabulous.

After the meeting, I picked up the kiddo from the sitter and we went home for about an hour before we left again and went to the movies. We saw Bedtime Stories and it was cute. We also saw previews for about three movies we both want to see. The new Witch Mountain movie and a sequel to Night at the Museum which looks really cute.

By the time we left the movie theater, it was freezing outside and we only had our light jackets on since it was nearly 60 and still sunny when we went inside. I stopped and got us a pizza for dinner so we were really junk-fooded out.

On Sunday, the kiddo woke up with pain in his ear. I don’t think it’s an ear infection since his ear wasn’t red and he wasn’t running fever. He forgot about it later in the day and was fine, but then at night he started crying with it hurting again. He said it was his jaw, too, so I’m inclined to think it’s sinus pressure. Because, once again, of this stupid weather I’m sure.

To distract him, we built his Indiana Jones Lego set he got for Christmas. Six hundred pieces and three hours later, the temple from the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark is complete, including a golden idol. Very cute but the kiddo was mad the parts kept falling off. I warned him it was because it was Lego.

I decided for dinner, we both deserved a steak, so I made that with oven baked potatoes. It was delish. He was ready to go to bed a little early so I tucked him in and went to watch some TV. I wasted nearly 2 hours of my life on the horrible Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters show.

Couldn’t sleep so I climbed into bed and fiddled with the Rome book a little. I managed to get some editing done. I’ve decided to finish it by February 1 for sure. I think that’s a doable goal.

And now here it is Monday again. I get my new car stereo installed today. I can’t wait! I’m so excited. It’s gonna rock.

That’s it for me. It’s time for work/school. Blah…

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
