Morning y’all. So I use to do this segment once in awhile to fill you in on my weekends. Given the 3 day weekend holiday, I figured I would try and jump back into it.
Surprisingly- or not surprisingly- I got off work early… AMEN! So, I got to beat traffic home and take a nap before heading up to Philadelphia. I was torn about going originally, but I had given (we will call her, The Lifeguard) so many rainchecks, I couldn’t cancel again. I compromised with myself and decided I would head up late Friday evening and come back Saturday morning. Anywho, I didn’t end up on the road until about 8, but I made excellent time into the city. Unfortunately, the place she wanted to go for dinner & drinks had already closed its kitchen by the time I got my life together, so we went to Mad Mex instead. Sidebar: If you have never been, do yourself a favor & go. Every time I head back there, I fall in love all over again… It could be all the tequila in the margaritas talking, but I love it there! && do yourself a favor, have the wings. Welp! We end up spending hours in there eating, drinking && chatting it up with some of my fellow Temple alum— several shots later, it was time for bed… so fastforward to about 4 a.m. Needless to say, I didn’t leave Philadelphia at no ones Saturday morning, lol
By the time I woke up– I mean– awake, alert, showered && dressed, it was after 1. So after lunch, I got on the road back to Maryland. THANKFULLY, I didn’t hit any traffic and made it back in record time… && just in time to get home, changed and head back out for sushi and a movie with (we’ll temporarily call her, The Enforcer). It was her first time ever having sushi && she made me proud! She was a really good sport, stayed open minded and actually enjoyed it. As for the movie, we went to see The Butler (her choice, not mine) and it was okay. It was hard for me to digest– partially because civil rights movies can be difficult for me to watch sometimes && partially because I had read a lot about the movie && was thoroughly disappointed that the movie wasn’t completely factual… a lot of it was intentionally rewritten for entertainment (and message) purposes. I will say however, there was a ton of humor in it.
After the movie we wandered around Downtown Silver Spring, which actually might be one of my new favorite places….
I finally caught up on some much needed rest! Granted, I woke up by 6:30 in the morning, which is nothing new, but I actually managed to go back to sleep around 7:30 and SLEPT IN until a little after 11. Y’all don’t even know how major that is, but I was hyped. It took me about two hours to finally get my life together, before hitting the mall. Let me just say, I could never be a “sneaker head.” My friend had us all over the mall looking at the craziest of sneakers && she was in love… I thought they were all either too bright, had too many colors or were just flat out ugly. *shrug* BUT we did manage to agree on a bowtie that she picked out—- so WIN for the femmes.. haha
I got more sleep and more rest….. and then I remembered the disrespectful load of homework I needed to do for this week. Sidebar: please pray for my sanity because these classes are definitely going to give me a workout. Anyways, I pushed through about half of the assignments and then allowed myself to procrastinate.. and by procrastinate I mean, watched tons of movies…
SO! Here we are at Tuesday and I must say, I had an awesome weekend. I feel relaxed and as if I actually caught up on some rest, in addition to having quality time with some great people. The next couple of days will be a whirlwind however, between class && adjusting to the homework load, I am going to be wiped out by Thursday evening…
Hope y’all had a good one!
Ps: I also spent some time drafting out a new short story, in addition to banging out more answers to some of your questions…… STAY TUNED
