In-laws in town over the weekend. Good visit with them although somewhat tiring.
Friday was a party at my coworker's house that I sadly had to cut short to get home to the inlaws. Wound up slightly lost in the wilds of Woodstock but managed to find my way home.
Do you know that there are $1,000,000 homes up in the wilds of Woodstock? One Million+ subdivisions are going in like crazy. So, not only are you getting a mortgage of doom, you're stuck out somewhere that takes you a good hour to get to downtown when there isn't any traffic. And yes, there are tons of things within a 20 minute drive, but it's still a 20 minute drive and OMG, subdivision houses should not cost over a million dollars.
Aaaaaanyway. Saturday was spent mostly relaxing and hanging out with touchstone
's folks. Nothing spectacular; just nice and quiet. Sunday was much the same. We had brunch with some friends, the in-laws and my mother, then left tLD in the care of her grandparents while we went to see David Copperfield with the SullenCoons.
I mean, wow.
He made a car appear on stage. A fullsized, big-ass 1940s Lincoln car. I know it's all smoke and mirrors and lighting effects, but...wow. He's also very funny and entertaining just in general. If he had skipped the 10 minute introductory video of how cool he was, it would have been a perfect show. As it was...8.5 out of 10.
Yesterday we hit the Georgia Aquarium. It was crowed with school children who had the day off, but was still really nifty. Even tLD was facinated by the colors and the moving fish. I'd like to go back (although not this year most likely) and spend more time watching, but even just hitting the high parts was very cool.
Back to normal today, and that feels good too. As long as I surive the weekend, all will be well.
