Happy Hour

Last night my plan to go straight home and rest up was derailed slightly by an invitation to go to Happy Hour at the Brookside Bar with Jill and a bunch of people from my old job.    It did though, as advertised, make me happy.   I went home about 7:00 and spent the rest of the evening having a nice dinner and watching TV and then taking a long bubble bath.  I was so tired yesterday, but I feel much refreshed today.   Tomorrow I'm going to lunch with Jill.  It was too loud at the bar to really talk much, so we were mostly shouting stupid stuff back and forth.  Fun, but hard to really catch up that way.

Oh, and this is odd. Last night I went up to the bar to get a drink and the old dude behind the bar says he needs my ID.  I'm laughing, like it's a joke, but he's serious.  I had left my bag in the car so I tell him I'll run out to the car and get it and be right back and he says, "yeah, right"  like he doesn't believe I have an ID.  WTF?  I'll be 38 in three weeks.  It was totally weird.  So anyway I go get it, show it and an ADDITIONAL ID because he's looking suspiciously at the one I give him, get my drink, come back to the table, and ask if he asked for anyone else's ID and apparently he only asked one other girl and she was in her early 20s.  When I get all prettied up, I could MAYBE pass for 30, but definitely not 20, so I have no idea what he was thinking.   You'd think I'd be flattered, but I'm mostly annoyed that I had to walk all the way back to my car.

Somehow, Jesse managed to find a Bill and Ruth's sandwich shop today that's run by a nice Japanese couple who also sell nice fresh sushi and miso soup there. You never know where my kids are going to end up any given day. I made a creamy chicken noodle soup for dinner, but the kids were too full from the excursion to Bill and Ruth's to eat anything.

I dyed my hair back to dark brown tonight. I was getting too much contrast between my roots and the ends, which have been dyed a variety of light reds, so I figured I'd dye it all back to something darker to match the roots and then start over with red again when I dye it next and hope it goes on more evenly. It's a shock to look in the mirror and see the change. I'll try to get a picture of it for your perusal, but even if everyone hates it I'm probably going to leave it this color for a while.

After my hair dye fest, the kids and I played Cranium Conga and did some Mad Libs tonight. I should have been folding laundry, as I've got a huge laundry problem brewing here, but playing with the kids was more fun and laundry will still be there when I get to it, right? Dingo's still got a fear of zombies going on so I'm letting him fall asleep in here on the couch while Jesse reads and I check lj. I'll carry him to bed after he falls asleep.

I'm really sleepy and was just kind of lethargic at work all day. I still don't think I've caught up from the weekend. I was up really late Friday and then the next two nights I just didn't sleep well for whatever reasons. I'm going to try to go lie down in a hour or so and see if I can't shake this fatigue by tomorrow.

Ack! I thought I had a cold sore today because I was developing a tiny painful spot on the edge of my upper lip. This is only noteworthy because I've never had a cold sore in my whole life and was wondering how the heck I ended up getting HSV all the sudden. Then I realized it was just a tiny pimple. Clearly, I need more to occupy my mind today.

Speaking of things unlikely to occupy my mind any better, tonight I'm taking the boys to see The Barnyard. It didn't get very good reviews, but they want to go, it's $2 to get in, it's air conditioned, and it keeps me from having to come up with something else to do. I offered to take them shopping, but they wanted the movie and actually that's a lot simpler and cheaper, so yay!
