party time!

Well thank goodness for f@cebook.  How else would I have known that yesterday was my own kid's birthday?


And no, I did not post "Happy Birthday, Meego!" on his timeline or on my timeline or anyone else's timeline.  I did it the old fashioned way in person.

Meego turned 16 yesterday, and in the midst of all the graduation hoopla, we made the day about him.  Chaco and Wolfgang spent the day with us, and Meego chose an outing of lunch and a movie - Captain America:  Civil War, which needed absolutely no help from us at the box office.

I'm at the age now where I prefer a good chick flick over an action hero/comic book movie, but I enjoyed Civil War well enough.  Since I've seen all of the preceding movies, under similar circumstances, I knew the backstory going in, so prepared myself ahead of time to enjoy this movie and I did.  It was emotionally painful to see the good-guy-on-good-guy violence, but I managed.

Then today was more of a Chaco day as Magnum's mom and stepdad came for a quick visit and we all had another lunch outing, this time in honor of graduation.  So good weekend, and now I'm getting in some alone time :)

It was a nice week all around, too.  It's always a strange feeling to end a semester.  All the frenzy of final project work and responsibility abruptly ending, and then nothing.  I keep thinking I should be doing something for class, but then remember I'm finished for now.  But fear not, I'm sure the sloth life will settle onto me very soon - probably about the time my summer class begins.

  1. Happy Birthday to Meego! (Did he get a driver's license to help celebrate this major milestone?)

    Enjoy the sloth life while you can! I'm sure that summer class will be here before you know it.

    1. Meego's still got plenty of driving hours to get in before the driver's license happens!

  2. Happy birthday Meego! 16 definitely deserves to be celebrated on it's own. And so does Chaco's graduation. Busy weekend for you! Thankfully you can sloth off for the rest of the week. Or all summer if you choose. Although, I'm quite sure you won't choose to do that. :)

    1. Meego was born on Mother's day, so the birthday's always been kind of golden - until siblings started having graduations. And it's funny how tiring sloth can be.

    1. Thanks, Linda. They seem to be doing well, in spite of their parentage...

  5. Civil War was surprisingly good for me. I rooted for Tony Stark, and was rather annoyed that Captain and his boyfriend, Bucky stole the limelight.... but hey, it's his movie after all.
    My birthday wishes to Meego!

    1. Meego and I were just talking about the house we lived in when he was 3. Wasn't that just a few months ago?
