The Weekend...

...So the weekend wasn't too shabby. Wasn't all that fantastic, either, but it could have been worse...

...We went out on Friday. Was a lot of fun. First off was Aaron's school's holiday party. I had to miss last year, so I was happy to be back with all the good food. *grins* It was nice to be able to catch up with people, too. After that, it was off to a bar to sit and laugh at Aaron with his co-workers.... You see, Aaron's a beer snob. No Coors Light for him. He had some chocolate beer that had one girl accusing him of being gay. Had the rest of us in stitches!

... Saturday was ok. It had all the potential to be horrible. You see....I met up with my biological mother in the evening. The whole lot of us, at any rate. And after all the junk that I said to her, I was gearing up for some drama. But, I should have known better. She's incapable of showing any real feelings. Which makes it tough to have any sort of real relationship with her. And anyone who's read this for any length knows that I'm more real than most people like. So this proves to be difficult for me. If she calls, I won't push ignore (though i was so very tempted!), but I know that it's only going to be shallow. She refrained from saying anything that would piss me off, though, which is a far cry better than some of my other family. And she was nice to my kids and didn't make any offers to stay at her house. Which, after over a year, I might visit if I'm invited, but it would definitely be on a trial basis only. Who knows? We shall see what the future holds.

... Sunday was just fine. I went with the fam to church (and if you've been around long enough, you know I'm not really feeling religion... and I'm still not.... ). Of course, the twins gave me additional reasons not to go to church, but I do it to play nice with Aaron. It's not that he doesn't know how I feel already. He does want to take the kids, but needs the extra hands. So after church, Aaron and I went to the gym together. Then it was lunch time. So I fixed some soup in time for us to watch kick off for the Colts/Jacksonville game. The Colts didn't disappoint. We pretty much were lazy slobs the rest of the day, and that felt pretty good.

...hope you all had a weekend where you got some relaxation in!
