Unabashedly a family weekend memoir
Saturday night after the play Maddie went off to a cast party--listening to her tell tween stories of boys and girls at breakfast this morning was priceless. But the rest of us came home, sat around the kitchen drinking wine, eating pizza (I ate salad righteously), telling old stories and repeating new gossip. We were joined for the play and after-play kitchen party by Rob and Lara--longtime friends. Jordan and Rob were in high school together, and he now works for Jamie--smll world. Lots of hilarity until I finally decided I had to go to bed.
We came home after brunch, savoring memories of a wonderful weekend. Jacob came home with me while Jordan went out with friends. I caught up with my computer, read the newspaper, unpacked, got in a nap, and fixed dinner. Whew! Jacob sweetly watched TV while I napped but then went to play with Abby next door while I cooked meatloaf (he hated it) and roasted potatoes--he thought those were okay if you put ketchup on them. Jordan, Christian, Jacob and I ate on the porch--lovely evening.
A sweet family weekend to treasure. Tomorrow back to work--a meeting, a class, and a presentation to prepare for. Retirement? Phooey!
