It's Monday, alright

I considered using "Someone's got a case of the Mondays" for the title, but decided it hasn't been quite that bad of a Monday. Just a few hiccups this morning, sort of like the obstacles Brennan encountered when he tried crawling the other night. My particular obstacle course had a few more players -- a car, a narrow alley, a dumpster and a garbage truck -- but you can see where I'm going with this. Anyway, after pulling off a wicked three-point turnabout in the alley, I managed to make it to work with 15 minutes to spare before my meeting. And that's driving on fumes, thank you very much.

Moving on! Allow me to subject you to a weekend recap. Buddy and I motored out to Highland on Friday night to have dinner with my parents and the Jones family. While I could have used about ten times as much Brennan time, I must remind myself that I'll get to see the little pipsqueak over the Father's Day weekend. And while our time together was brief, I still managed to take quite a few pictures before Buddy and I drove back to St. Louis in the storm to beat all storms. I would like to tell you that Buddy bravely sat by my side as we soldiered through the blinding rain and whipping winds, but he was sound asleep in the backseat. At least the beating rain drowned out his snoring.

Saturday brought the usual fun household chores, some plant relocation, a little sun worship, happy hour pina coladas and a delicious Guido's pizza for dinner. (Love the name and the pizza.) Sunday we did early mass (sorry, eighth graders, but the though of a 90-minute graduation mass made us feel faint), exchanged yet another coffee maker at Bed Bath & Beyond and then had a lovely barbecue out at the Lindh estate. The Clifford family was in from KC, so it was nice to have everyone together. Ben, the other baby nephew, is having some mommy separation and teething issues so he freaked every time I went near him, but I'm trying not to take it personally.
