With the second half of the summer gearing up, it means that we have to prep for all kinds of The Family stuff going on. Birthday parties for the nephews, going over to Mom’s to do some light tech support and make sure that her backups have been successful (and get a meal or two), and otherwise get the connection prior to school starting (at which point the business hurricane starts and we won’t see the eye until October or thereabouts).
So this weekend is going over to Mom’s to have a nice meal, a nice conversation, and make sure that her computer hasn’t caught a cold or anything. We also have to have a conversation about the things that would be appropriate to get for a teenager. (I know what I am inclined to get, mind… I am merely also pretty sure that we’re a ways away from me being able to just up and transfer my PS3 library given both the excesses of some of the games as well as the moderation and sobriety of the parents.)
Along with, yet again, another batch of chores, errands, and obligations to act as the mortar for the bricks of the weekend.
Thankfully, Friday night can be devoted to excesses in and of themselves.
So… what’s on your docket?
