Friday Night -Hollywood Bowl
It was great! My friend and I drank both the bottles of wine we brought along so I don't really remember the music all that much. But I do know that John Williams conducted the orchestra as they played the score to Star Wars, while fireworks were simultaneously (and triumphantly!) set off at the end of the show. That made hubs VERY jealous as he is the biggest Star Wars nerd in the history of Star Wars nerds. You might think, "No way, my husband/brother/friend is a bigger nerd," but I assure you, that is not the case. Unless yours dresses up and goes to conventions, my hubs takes the cake. (ETA: Clarification, hubs does not dress up and go to conventions, short of that he is the biggest Star Wars nerd around. LOL he's going to kill me when he sees that's what people are thinking now. Hehehe...) Luckily, my friend caught the whole show on her iPhone, so hubs will get to see it. (Oh yeah, and he loves fireworks too, he's a big 'splosion nerd as well.)
Saturday - The Beach
We spent the day with hubs' family at their camp site at the beach on Saturday. It was a nasty, cloudy, overcast day at home, but up the coast about 60 miles it was GORGEOUS. We sunbathed a little, then I indulged in even more wine with my SIL and MIL. A very nice time, even being surrounded by babies (my other SIL and BIL were there with theirs and had invited some friends up who also have a 5 or 6 month old).
After a weekend of wine, I was feeling like crap yesterday! And also feeling very grumpy, drinking does that to me too. We did some browsing for a new front door, then went out to lunch before heading to my parents' house. My sister and BIL also showed up with their 3 youngest kids (did I mention they have 7 between them?), and we ended up staying for dinner. It was a good time. Then as everyone was saying their good-byes, people started wishing hubs happy Fathers Day "next year." Sigh.
As we were walking out the door, my dad then tells us that we don't need to worry because "there's no infertility in our family." ::::FacePalm:::: First of all, that is not true. Secondly, I wasn't even really thinking about it and definitely did not want to talk about it. I'm wondering whether I should educate my family on what infertility actually means. It seems to me that none of them knows.
Poor hubs on the way home told me he now understands how I feel on Mothers Day with people making comments to me about having kids. What sucks is I didn't even think to prepare myself for Fathers Day.
And here we are, back to Monday. Hopefully it'll ZOOM by, followed by the rest of the week, and we'll be enjoying Friday evening again soon!
