I wonder if some of our friends think that all we do is fund-raise? It’s true that the past 4 months have been full of activities and fund-raising, we’ve also been doing a lot of personal things and projects. This weekend was a chance for us to have a rare convergence of kid schedules and event schedules – no kids around and no events planned. Sinful! Shocking! The debauchery that happened will astonish you…
… well, not so much. Saturday was a total relax and watch movies day. We both decided to not ride this weekend, instead choosing to downshift at home. The most kinky think we did was probably … well… nothing. We did catch up on a movie that we’d both wanted to see – The Dark Knight Rises. We both liked it, but it was LONG. It was almost 11:30pm when we finished watching it. I gave angie her Mother’s Day gift at 12:05am Sunday morning, then we went to bed. Yes, kinky as all hell… but it felt wonderful to just have an off day.
Sunday was Mother’s Day brunch, schlepping kids back from seeing their Moms and then an evening around the fire-pit, with cigar and bourbon. Our kid-free and responsibility-free weekend came to an end.
Now comes the frantic IML weekend soon. We have a lot planned with Bootblack Thursday, the Roasts, Friday night fun, then the IML Breakfast on Saturday, the Fetish Ball Saturday night, Sunday is a MAsT meeting, then the contest and angie going to the women’s party. We always have so much fun that weekend, but it is a whirlwind!
We’re also working on the house building up north, so that adds some potential stress, but working with a general contractor has helped to ease the crush of all the little things that need to be done – between the permits, zoning, more permits, sub-contractor bids, we were falling into some typical traps and mistakes.
And … preparing for GLLA! We’ve had some amazing discussions as we prep with questions and lessons from our previous experiences.
One thing about this title year is the growth that we’ve had with each other. Talking about all of these things has made us very much in tune with each other. And that’s probably the best part so far of this title year.
