AR Saturday...........

Happy New year from AR America, college town etc... I drove up here Thursday and stopped by my little buddy Jf's house and had dinner with his wife and 3 kids, some sort of nut sauce pasta dish , I gave them some Christmas gifts, a pottery barn platter I got on sale last year and a pair of shoes that he'd admired when I visited during homecoming. he's already shopping for a navy suede belt. ha
I left around 6:30 and went to Walmart to get some rechargeable batteries and a minecraft tshirt for my hosts' younger son. he is about 9 and was born with FAS and he likes to play minecraft a lot and loves all things electronic. I had to get him a little somehting because I was delivering another blue suede pair of shoes to the older brother as a gift. they are too small and upon return to OKC will try to see if the outlet has any in size 12. anyway, so I arrived at my hosts place and chilled the rest of the evening, mainly catching up with the wife you I grew up with and drinking some chardonnay a bit, until the hubby came home from church music practice and then we all stayed up chatting and comparing holidays and talking.
Friday was a great day, was lazy most of the morning until about 10 and then went over to T the ex gf place and hung out on her couch for a while, we exchanged gifts, we left for lunch in town and then the coffee shop and then ran some errands all the time chit chatting away, great time, left to get back to my hosts by 3:30 or 4 because we had talked about maybe going over to Crystal Bridges, instead we all decided to go to dinner and then maybe see a movie, T came over and went with us. we rented movies instead, so after dinner we watched that Tom Cruise movie where he keeps repeating the same day trying to save the world from aliens.
this mornign I'm up and wish I were already at Crystal Bridges since they open at 10, but the married couple is not up, and the older son is not up, just the kid playing minecraft ignoring all else, and me here at the breakfast table finished with breakfast and taking some time to throw out a blog post. :)
S son as they get up, I'm going to find out how serious they were about going to Crystal brideges with the family today or not, and then I'll either go by myself or go with them.  I plan to go back by buddy Jf place and then get out of town by 6 and drive home tonight.  I could stay threw til tomorrow but 2 nights overnighting here on a twin mattress on the floor upstairs in the music studio room that doesn't really have a working air/heat vent is enough. ;) but the real reason I'm going home is so I don't miss Sunday School because they offered group seats at the Thunder game next Friday and I signed up for 2 tickets, which means I need to pay for them and get them tomorrow morning, alas.
I'm fine with that because it gets me back home and comfortable and on schedule and probably even I can get back to the gym tomorrow and start up my routine for 2015. woo ho.  I also have a bunch of Christmas stuff all over the place in the front room. there is an OCD part of me that has to deconstruct everything and then reconstruct, for example, instead of just taking the tree down and putting stuff back in boxes, I decded last week to empty every single box , put all like things together and then rebox and organize. I left in the middle of that when I decided to come up here Thursday instead of waiting til Fri.  I'm excited to spend mre time at the art museum today and the Sate of the ARt exhibit, because it felt rushed last time. also I like that it's part of my vacation travelling and viewing and enjoying versus trip to Dallas where all I do is shop. so money saved! plus gas was cheaper to getting here so why not. :)
have a good lazy Saturday all!
