Saturday night fever

I didn´t want to think about next week´s doctor appointments and thought I was going to pass my time between the computer and old TV shows. But yesterday I hd an invitation from a friend to go to the theatre. The director of the company had given her 2 tickets and she invited me to tea at her house and then to the play. I have been very secluded lately and there are lots of things I have avoided because my defenses were too low. The play was very interesting, a mixture of black humor and drama and the actor did it fine. The street (downtown) where we went was totally changed from what I remembered. There were open big libraries (at almost midnight), cafés and I felt at a boulevard in Paris. I invited my friend to a coffee, but we ended with a beer for me, a natural juice for her and provoleta cheese with toasts. We shared the that and a txi home and felt like two Cinderellas at the ball. How was your weekend? So you have weekends better than your expectations sometimes? Share.

Actually, this weekend was somewhat better for me than the any time recently. As was mentioned in the post I made yesterday, I finally got rid of my roommates that have been causing a lot of grief for me. I sat on the computer most of the afternoon and then in the early evening I got in the car (finally got it back from the mechanic last week after getting a new motor) and drove out to the casino and stopped for a burger and fries on the way out there. I didn't win anything, but at least I got out of the house and had my first day of peace and quiet. I got home just as they were leaving with the last of their stuff. I looked around today and found that there were a couple of things missing from my kitchen (a lasagne pan, my spaghetti pot, another small sauce pan from the set and the covers to all of the set). At least none of my electronic equipment was missing (computer, laptop, printer, etc.). This was the first time I had been out on my own for a couple of months so it felt good. Today I just sat on the computer and enjoyed the silence. Now to get back into life...

I´m glad that you too had a nice weekend and that your roommates finally went away. I cannot understand why people who have been helped as you did would go taking with them part of your belongings, even if they were not important. Enjoy the calm in your life as much as you can and take care.

I am on the way to the doctor soon. I just hope that things will start going right for me. Take care!

Wow sounds great your having fun with your friends. I don't expect too much fun in my evening night since I moved out in the big city where my nights are alive. But here in my town I don't have too much friends who like to go out at night there are more old fashioned being martyr with their husband.

I have done all I can in my life to run aways from martyrs. I prefer people with almost any other personality trait. I suppose that the martyr thing in a marriage is a way of manipulating. The friend I went out with on Saturday is happily married but they also have a life of their own.

I have a great life too when I'm still with my ex I mean a great life style, that's why I'm been fed up in the big city where I came from. I'm a dance teacher and most of the time my work is at night. I went here in my town so that I can live peacefully.

My weekends sometimes all messed up. I thought that it would be a great day but not. I just told to myself then that always expect the unexpected. Maybe that things happened for a reason.

Not all my weekends turn out as nice as this one. And I shared it with you because it´s not a common thing to happen. Usually I am at my computer, with luck I have a 10 minute visit from one of my daughters and that´s all.

Hi, Marguicha, I'm glad that all of a sudden you had this nice evening. I also had a surprise for the weekend but, alas, it wasn't good at all. I had planned to make an excursion with a friend because this Sunday I was free. But at the last moment I received a request to do an urgent work. I make translations and subtitling as a spare job. No need to say that I missed the excursion. At least the work was not too much and I earned a little more money for the next month.

It´s nice to have some extra money too. But we all wish that extra work would not be scheduled in such short notice. I hate making awesome plans nd having to change them at the last moment.

Some weekends are TV weekends for me too. But this one was unexpectedly different and nice. Today another friend came over for the day and brought most of the food ready made because she had had guests on Saturday evening and had very fine leftovers.
