MIAGD: Make it a great day
Saturday evening was, in many ways, exceptionally calm; however, I was with two wonderful ladies for dinner and a movie and it’s amazing how much energy was drained.
I met Debbie Allen in 2002 as we prepared for April 2003 Fairmont HS production, THE SECRET GARDEN. September 2007, at Fairmont’s open house, I met Jenny Davis, introduced by Debbie. While I’ve a long history with these ladies their history goes back to their children’s elementary school days.
We ate dinner at Taqueria Mexican restaurant on East Third Street and then removes ourselves to The Victoria Theater where we watched DIE HARD on the big screen.
By 9:45 PM I was in bed with my three regular furry companions at my side.
Between comfortable and energized chatter with Jenny and Debbie and the ultra exciting movie, one of my favorite action films, I’ve wrestled with OMPF (old man party fatigue) this morning.
At 7:30 AM I fed the dogs, propped open the storm door to the deck to let them potty, and fell right into the guest bed in the bedroom off the deck, finally rising at 9:30 AM for coffee and cereal, and shriving myself for a few hours lost in my day.
But, it is Sunday. I’d promised myself a relaxing Saturday and that fell by the wayside when my feet touched the floorboards beside my bed.
So, I’m considering making this my down-day. However, I’m already eager to research and write, and my mind is trying to schedule a visit to the last hour of the German Fest at Riverscape and then time on my swing.
So, while I wade through sinus pressure, indecisiveness as to my agenda, and a struggle to completely relax, I intend to make it a great day.
