mental vacation

Posted May 19 2005 12:00am
Tuesday I re-read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Actually it spilled over into Wednesday, but when I finished it in the morning I just kept right on with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which I finished in the wee hours this morning.

That was fun. I needed the break from reality. I'd guess I did at least 18 hours of reading over 2 days, and it may have been more like 20. Yes, I am insane... but on those 2 days I limited my computer time to checking eMail in the morning, and I didn't watch any TV at all. It was lovely.

Today we all went to the 4:20 showing of Revenge of the Sith. I knew I wouldn't be on-call to do much with the kids today because of the movie, that's why I could afford to be up stupid-late reading a book I have in fact already read twice before.

ROTS wasn't any more dreadful than I expected it would be. Going to the movies with the kids and DH was a treat, they always get so excited. It was terrific fun to watch DS1 watching the movie. DS2 sat on my lap for the duration which was at times excruciating, but I think if he had been in his own seat he would've been too scared. As it was, there was one scene where I covered his eyes, and he didn't mind in the least.

Today didn't go as easily as I'd hoped, since my request for a jury duty excuse was denied and I had to jump through a few hoops to get it rescheduled for September. I also had to deal with some Thyrogen/insurance stuff. It's looking like the dr's office will get the Thyrogen in house sometime next week, and I should have my scan the week after that, but it's still a bit up in the air. DH has classified the entire cadre of people responsible for getting this done as "Keystone Kops" but I don't think that's quite fair. I do know that if I didn't stay on top of them, nothing would be happening still.

Since I'm more realistically hopeful about the timing of the scan this time, the plan is to start back on the LID on Monday. That means seafood and dairy all weekend long! The coconut shrimp at Rockfish are calling my name.
