It ended up being a generally mellow weekend, which was good, and I am getting more and more exhausted. I was able to get close to ten hours sleep each day, which felt real good. I'd have to go to bed around 8:30 to get that most weeknights. Things have to change soon, my quality of life is steadily decreasing.
The kids have off from school for the rest of the week. Thursday Mrs. Ha is watching the Porsche-kids, but tomorrow and Friday I can sleep in a bit longer, and let them sleep in.
We blew off the Saint Paddy's day parade, below freezing with six inches of snow is not my idea of ideal parade weather. To compensate, I made corned beef and cabbage, and bought the girls doughnuts with green sprinkles.
Since I had gotten paid, I also bought ersatz Baileys and a 12 of Guinness.
I also picked up The Magdalene Sisters at the library, in some sort of twisted homage to Saint Patrick. It's so depressing, and frightening how little power women had in Ireland in the 60's (and even up to the 90's). Get raped, get pregnant out of wedlock, even act too saucy and it's off to the wayward women's laundry, making money for pyschotic nuns.
Continuing in the movie to slit your wrists to vein, we went to the local art house theater to watch The Dead Girls, a five part movie about a dead girl in a California field, and those affected by her. Squalid and depressing, but interesting.
I did get in some old fashioned hex and counter wargames, I'm beginning to specialize in ones that I can ply on a 12x20 bedtray, since I can move it around to play with on the couch, and then put it up high away from the cat. This makes a 2-4 game much more doable. Sadly, Trhid Reich is going to have to wait a few more years. The girls were trying to get me on a guilt trip since I haven't played games with them in a while, so I should fit something in, even a quick game of Carc.
