I wanted to write a quick summary of my weekend events as I don’t want to forget. After a long thursday, I was forced to stay up to do more reading for my philosophy assignment. After finished, I collapsed into bed hoping that the next day I would wake up early and finish it in time to hand in. Well as luck would have it I slept in, until about 11 and since I had originally planned to take the 3pm bus, I had to postpone until the 5pm bus.
After a semi-frantic morning spent cleaning up, packing and writing about 600 words for my paper, I admitted defeat and told myself I would just work on it on the bus and hand it in via online. Well I wrote about 1000 words on the bus ( the paper limit) and decided to play some online games instead of finishing the last edited version of the paper, still speaking from my procrastination side saying that I would have time to finish it later. As it turns out, by the time I got home from my bus ride it was 8:30, I was starving and my family have a feast of blue crabs ready for eating. By the time we were done that it was almost 9:30 and I was ready to call it quits and make do with a deduction for a late hand in. But I buckled down and finished it at 11:35, 20 mins before the final due date. Whether it was any good? That has still yet to be seen. I spent the rest of the night playing online games, watching t.v. reruns and all around lazing lol.
Saturday I woke up at 9 despite having gone to bed only at 4:30. There’s always many things to be done around the house so I helped assemble a bookshelf, move furniture around, redecorate the house, dust around the house and rearrange books. By the time we were done, my family was starving, so we went to one of my favourite restaurants for some good eats (see food blog for details) and then off to ikea for cheap ice cream/frozen yogurt and retrieving a missing part for the bookshelf. The rest of the afternoon was spent grocery shopping, finish cleaning up and eating some more good food. =)
Sunday was my mother’s 4_th birthday. I can never remember how old she’s turning. In my mind, she’s perpetually stuck at 42 and loves me when I tell her that. My parents woke up early to cook the prime rib that I had prepped the night before and I woke up to my sister yelling at me to get ready. I went downstairs to check on the food as I had forgotten to tell them some instructions. Luckily, I’m an improvisational cook (or in other words, one who doesn’t know what she’s doing half the time) so crisis was averted and I made up new instructions on how to finish it off. We were off to church and arrived back in time to get everything prepared for the lunch party we were throwing. Tons of good food which can also be viewed in the food blog. An overall success.
I slipped away from the party in hopes of packing which I did partially before falling asleep to the sound of a movie playing. I woke up in time to finish off packing, eat a little more food and say goodbye before heading out to catch the 6pm bus back to Kingston.
The Coach Canada bus was completely packed. I don’t think I’ve seen it so full on a non-special weekend. If I hadn’t come early, I think I would have probably ended up as one of those who get left behind. I felt so bad for them but I couldn’t afford to not catch that bus. Besides, I don’t think anyone anticipated for it to get that full on a regular weekend. After I got home, I unpacked as luggage consisted basically of food and I went to bed.
That was my lovely visit back home. Won’t be back until end of november.
