Pride Weekend

So, what did I do for Pride Weekend? Nothing. Nothing that I'm proud of; nothing that I'm ashamed of, either. Here's a rundown of my weekend:

Friday night - to bed and fall asleep at midnight.

Saturday - up at 9 to let dogs out and tell kids to be quiet, at 10 to let dogs back in and tell kids to be quiet, at 11 to drink coffee and eat breakfast and read the paper and watch TV and read a frivolous fiction book. Graze through the pantry and refrigerator off and on throughout the daylight hours, sometime giving some food to the kids as reward for being quiet. Nap for an hour. Put on clothes (OK, pants; leaving PJ top on. Note: only one in family to actually get out of PJs all day!) about sundown to go outside and grill hot dogs. Watch fireflies with kids until driven inside by mosquitoes. Read another trashy science fiction novel and watch TV until bed at 11 (PM!).

Sunday - get up at 10 to let dogs out and tell kids to be quiet, end up staying up to make coffee and eat breakfast. Read the Sunday paper for several hours while consuming more coffee. Actually get dressed and clean house and do all the wash. Graze throughout the day again. Cook beer can chicken for supper. Sit outside after dark with kids and watch big thunderstorm roll in while drinking beer (just me drinking, not kids) to counteract earlier coffee. Go to bed and read until midnight while daughter camps out on bedroom floor with dogs.

All in all, a very nice weekend. Of course, I had to spoil it by going back to work today, but I enjoyed it while it was here. Maybe you did something special for Pride Weekend?

    It sounds like you *did* have a special Pride weekend! It sounds simply wonderful; I can hardly imagine a better weekend when the kids are young.

    I did attend Michigan Pride in Lansing. I blogged about it, so I won't repeat it here. Suffice it to say that I had a good time. I was out, I was proud, I was loud. :)

    We'll be going to Pride in Manchester but missed out on the London one; then again, I say 'missed out' but I don't miss the expense, the crowds, the commercialism which has taken it over. These days, good times with friends over coffee are cherished. x
