the last two nights were quite busy for me. i worked. and i talked. and laughed.
thursday night i was able to swing out to my old stomping grounds (perkin's--i so was remembering the feeling of happy anticipation for a night with diet coke, s-m-o-k-e-s, and much chatter as i was rounding holiday and pulling in to the parking lot under that huge u.s. flag) and stayed out until MIDNIGHT. i won't name names, but two of the women are sisters, one of whom is single, the other just moved to a new, peachy part of the country, and the third woman is their curly haired, pt maternal-cousin. lots of laughter and shushing and whispering and general chattering. i grinned the whole drive home!
friday night, i took an 8:30 client, which is not unusual, but i did not lock up the shop until 10:35--that is a lengthy haircut appointment! a darling, first apartment-mate friend. we stood at the door for probably an hour with our keys in our hands. good-bye-ing many, many times. e, we should have sat in the comfy chairs!! the moon was beautiful on the drive home, a sort of orangey smile.
when the baby woke us up at 6:41 this morning, i started wheelin' and dealin' with the hubbinator: if you get up today, i'll get up tomorrow and you can sleep. he agreed, but...i told him to go back to bed. he had a looooong week what with his wife out gallivanting (i thought that word should be spelled 'galavanting', but whatever!) till all hours of the night ;)
hi ho, hi ho, it's back to work i go! refreshed from two evenings of friendly conversations.
