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.
