As you might have gathered already, I went to the Breaking Dawn release party (I missed the Harry Potter parties, so this was the next best thing) on Friday night, and spent a couple of hours with teenagers at a Barnes & Noble. They were all giddy and in costume, and I had fun being vicariously 16 again. I don’t remember much of being 16, except that it was awkward and confusing and, at times, a lot of fun. Well, when I wasn’t at soccer practice, at least. That was not so fun (sometimes it was, but overall, well, I love soccer but I hate running).
So, yeah. There were some silly contests, and the staff was all dressed up, I knit at the cafe while pretending not to be one of the few grown-ups, and then I bought my book, took it home, and put it down before I finished because it was putting me to sleep. And also I had to move many boxes the next day. Note to self: do not do an all night reading session the evening before a big move. It’s a really stupid idea.
The first part of our big move went well. We got all of the nonessential stuff out into the new house and met some nice neighbors. Yesterday we did the grocery shopping, and I watched several episodes of a cheesy Lifetime vampire series, and then I went to bed and dreamed about being the worst Catwoman the world has ever known.
So all in all, a pretty productive weekend.
Next weekend, we’re moving all the rest of our stuff. I’m excited and dreading it, all at the same time.
