My Saturday got off to an excellent start when I woke up a few minutes before 4:00 a.m., shut off my alarm before it went off on its own, walked across the bedroom and shut off my back-up alarm, went into the bathroom, and while peeing, realized it was Saturday and that I could sleep in. This never happens, so I’m thinking it may have had something to do with the two shots of really good tequila (leftover from the tequila bar at our annual Christmas party — Chuck only buys high-end for that event) I had the night before, plus some nice hits of some excellent weed once Chuck went to bed (I usually only vape the stuff, but now and then I crave actual smoke).
Talk about a natural high, getting to go back to bed once the realization kicks in. I slept in until about 9:30, then lingered in bed, played some games on my computer, and planned my day.
At 11:30 I met Diane for pedicures. We always have mimosas when there on Saturdays. She showed up with her wine tote with a good bottle of chilled cava, while I brought the Pom. We wound up drinking out of Dixie cups, as she forgot to pack plastic wine glasses in her tote. 1st World problems, right?
Always fun to catch up with Diane; we talk about work a lot, but since we’re in careers that we love, the conversation is always lively and engaging.
Finishing up the cava as our toes dried, we talked about stuff going on the next few weekends. It’s getting so that every one of our weekends is filled with something; either out-of-town guests, Easter, a party, or some other social event. More 1st World problems.
I am actually writing this during a break, before heading out later to VinDiego, a wine tasting event at Liberty Station. We were at another such event last Saturday, but this one I got free tickets for, and there will be food vendors there (all inclusive). Unlike last Saturday, however, we will be coming straight home afterwards and staying put for the rest of the day.
So that is my Saturday in a nutshell. Tomorrow will be more about chores around the house, because there is nothing worse than waking up at 4:00 a.m. Monday morning — when it really is a workday — and looking around to see that nothing got done over the weekend because I was having too much fun. That’s a 1st World problem I plan to dodge.
Happy Saturday, everyone.
