The Weekend that Was

Friday night, our household was reeling from the news of Brian's test results. My boss sent me home from work early Friday afternoon. I went to the gym and worked my body until every cell refused to work any more. I walked out of there literally wobbling. On my way home I picked up a bottle of really good Zinfindel. When I got home, we coordinated who needed to be notified, as well as overall logistics.

After that, however, we enjoyed a pretty normal weekend. And since it is President's Day, we still are. Starting last week sometime, Chris' buddy's mom invited Chris to spend the night at their house, so he did on Saturday evening. I fully expect to have to return the favor next weekend. I met up with a friend of mine to do some shopping and catching up in SoHo. After Chris was picked up, Brian met up with us, and we had a very nice out with another friend of ours. Sunday was a day of catching up on chores, etc. Chris came home just before supper time.

In the publishing industry, there really are very few actual holidays. Today falls into that category. So while I am home, I am actually working putting out fires spawned of negligence. Brian is enjoying an unencumbered day off. I will finish my office related duties, some chores and then head to the gym.

Tomorrow morning, we will head to the hospital early. They are saying that this might be an out patient procedure, but I am somewhat ambivalent about that. For me, given his history, it seems quite a serious procedure, with serious implications. That said, they are not going in though his femoral artery. They are using the artery in either his wrist or upper arm. I suppose since the weight of his body will not be borne by a newly incised artery, the procedure a titch less risky. I am looking forward to seeing the actual report on his coronary arteries, complete with graphics, and very glad (an odd word to use here, but I can think of none better right now) that Brian will have this procedure before it becomes an emergency situation.

I've on all occasions liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of virtuous fritter away space staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a course, it helps me with meditation, to relieve lay stress and decent assume in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've always sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I establish the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Light Manifest Laser Top Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from protection the Toys section. It's like a tuneful belt, a spinning top, and a moonlight show all rolled into one. Which is capacious relaxation! The gyroscope transfer whirl for about a minute. The laser explanation pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a very incomparable tiny that my friends have also been most amused with.

My dogs are also nice-looking outr?nearly the laser gyroscope I got from They always follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got used it, they've stopped barking but just maintain following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused next to it. On occasion it's meet to have diverting toys around the ancestry so that you can desert the diminutive on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to fit out food or receive changed. The gyroscope is unified such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a map on it, and produces a gegenschein show with red, downcast, and unripened colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser luminosity show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but allowable sufficiency to treat any chic customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and negro, making it look extraordinarily cold, and slightly virile with that dragon imprint.

The music luminescence plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the pension cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as well so that the laser brighten register produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the understanding effects created a degree mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, at near the way, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my oversight shopping site in favour of all gifts and ideas in compensation romantic occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light playing gyroscope can possibly be a superb Christmas gift for the toddler or in spite of the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a gracious reckoning to the established Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it just about the Christmas tree and perchance spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my duty yet again!
