Am oddly calm weekend

Well.....last night was a pleasant first in a very long time. I actually slept ALL night without waking up at 1 a.m. or staying up to watch TV until 4 a.m. Wow. What a surprise, Now, Cookie, the famous Dachshund Bed Hog did NOT sleep on the bed with me last night. I do not know if that had anything to do with it but it was certainly nice and most unusual Wow. I hardly know how to act. I wish it would happen more often. Not being able to sleep doesn't really affect me physically and since I don't work, I never "have" to be anywhere at any certain time but it's still nice to sleep all night. Right? Right.
This weekend was not too bad. I did not feel crappy and I actually won a couple of dollars on my lottery tickets. That was fun. Let's see... Saturday. What did I do on Saturday?? Oh another most unusal thing. I stayed home most of the day. We went out on Friday and so we stayed home all day Saturday. It was boring but tolerable. I really don't remember that much about what I did. I can hardly remember what I had for dinner last night, let alone what I did two days ago. That's why I write everything down on my calendar every day.
I do remember that there was a small white metal bed headboard tossed out on the side of the road (people toss junk out on our road all the time....) and I made my husband stop and I picked it up. It was clean, intact, solid and it had a very pleasing shape. I brought it home, put two stakes in the dirt and sunk it into the ground out near my Alien Landing platform and the dead cat memorial. It is solid and looks very cute, I think. I am going to plant some pretty plants around it in the spring. I love it. I live the way it looks. Hubby thinks it's junk because it was heading for the dumpster but didn't quite make it there.. I think it is a found object that I turned into a very pretty garden accessory. I guess it's all in how you look at it.
Yesterday?? It was very dreary and drizzling but I went out anyway. Yesterday was interesting and pleasant enough even though I spent the day with CrazyFriend. I just was NOT going to get into our usual argument about her being a doormat for her sleazy creepy freeloading boyfriend. I just wasn't going to go there. I was NOT coming home with a migraine. So.....we went to brunch at a place called The Strudel Cafe. I wasn't our first choice but our first choice was mobbed so we went next door. Although it's not my favorite place, it was actually pretty good. I don't care much for the seating in the place but the food is absolutely delicious. I just wish they had better seating.
Then we did a few pretty boring errands (I bought bird seed and a new toy for the cockatiels) and I bought incense. We then looped back around and I went to the range. I wanted to shoot a little bit. That place was totally mobbed. It was a madhouse. But since I'd gone through all the trouble to bring my guns with and I drove all that way, I was going to shoot. I waited about 20 minuted for a lane. I shot about 50 rounds and then we took off. I like to shoot pretty regularly since I carry a gun every day, it seems like a good idea.
After the range, we went on back to the Goodwill Store (I have been looking for an old camo Army jacket for myself). After I dropped CrazyFriend off, I stopped at Wallyworld, PetSmart and then I came on home.
It was nearly 4:30 when I finally got back.
But I felt good, I did NOT scream at CrazyFriend about how stupid she in being and I had a pleasant day. I hate the crowds but it was Sunday and all the Episcopalians were out. They tend to get a little pushy after church. And there are sooo many of them!They are almost worse than the Baptists! The Catholics aren't so bad. There just aren't that many here in the South.
So it was a pleasant weekend, all in all.
And no crappy feeling days.
I'm keeping track now, y'know.
