My weekend did not go as I had originally planned. A little old hurricane named Irene decided to drop on in in Massachusetts. I will have to say though, it couldn’t have been better timing having it happen on a Sunday. (Silver lining people)
But it wasn’t the weekend I was hoping for. This is what was planned:
Saturday: Brewfest and quiet night at my parents house while they were at the Red Sox game
Sunday: Friend’s bridal shower in Connecticut and Howl at the Moon 1 Year Anniversary Party
Monday: Dentist appointment and dinner at Sonsie
What did end up happening was:
Saturday: Thankfully the Brewfest was still a go, but because of the insane rain delays at Fenway Park my parents ended up staying home and we went to dinner at Fresco’s and watched the Birdcage. Still a nice evening.
Sunday: Irene comes on over and knocks out the power at 11AM. (As of this posting my parents are still without power. That’s 2 days and counting)
Some were not so phased by the wind and rain. They were our entertainment.
When in rain: drink wine, play games and watch your cat try to get out of a bag.
This wine was delicious by the way! A nice smooth cabernet sauvignon.
And of course, because of the weather, the anniversary party at Howl at the Moon was cancelled. Hopefully I can make it to the new date.
Monday: The dentist office still had power. Kind of a yeah and boo moment. Yeah because I didn’t have to reschedule but boo because I hate going to the dentist. Usually I have no teeth issues but this time was different.
I have to have my wisdom teeth taken out. I’ve never had any kind of surgery and I have no idea how I’m going to react to the anesthesia and the pain medicine. But it has to be done! So now it’s just a matter of finding an oral surgeon who takes my health insurance.
The dinner at Sonsie was also cancelled so that was a bummer. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. I’ve been there a couple times already but it’s always a treat when I do.
Thankfully the next 10 days look like this:
How was your weekend? Were you affected by the hurricane?
