I don't know that I actually accomplished very much this weekend, but the activity was non-stop nonetheless.
On Friday evening, we had a recording session and got a bit further with some of our songs. Our main problem right now is that the Mac Mini that's our main recording computer just isn't cutting it. As soon as my grandparents' estate is settled I'll be able to afford a better one, but in the meantime we're limping along between crashes. It's frustrating, but otherwise I think the band is gelling rather nicely.
I had an eye doctor appointment on Saturday morning, which made me regret the coffee I'd had at 11 o'clock the previous evening. My eyes were fine and I really just wanted a new prescription of the contact lenses I'm used to, but this doctor always wants me to try the newest ones on the market. It didn't work out at all well last time, but this year's model seems better so far.
That afternoon, I went to hang out with my sister and her kids. She was bored because my brother-in-law was out of town, so we ran around and did a little bit of shopping, then got my favorite carry-out Chinese food for dinner. After my niece and nephew went to bed, we drank pinot grigio, made ice cream sandwiches with the gingersnaps I'd bought at World Market, and watched comedy DVDs until we both got sleepy (which didn't take too long, in my case).
I decided to stay over, which was a good test of my new contact lenses as I had no choice but to sleep in them. In the morning, we all went to breakfast and I made it home before my husband woke up.
On Sunday, my husband and I finally went to see Who Killed the Electric Car? It was heartening to see that the theater was nearly full. I hope it's a sign that people are waking up to the way the government and corporations are working against the best interests of the citizenry. As we left the theater and got into my Honda Insight, we ended up having a fairly long conversation with the guy parked next to us (who, interestingly enough, worked on the production line at GM) about the hybrid car and the possibility of converting it to a plug-in hybrid.
After an evening spent mostly in front of the TV (we saw the season finale of "The 4400" but haven't gotten to "Deadwood" yet), I turned in early.
I predict that this week and next week are going to fly by.
