Time & Clothes

In an aston­ish­ing devel­op­ment, we actu­al­ly got up and made it to UU Con­gre­ga­tion of Mari­et­ta in time for a ser­vice today! As an added bonus, we attend­ed a brief CUUPs meet­ing after­wards. We did­n’t stay for the potluck din­ner, as we had­n’t brought any­thing and did­n’t want to be free­load­ers. Katie real­ly enjoyed RE and I enjoyed the ser­vice. I don’t think they have much of a music pro­gram, but we’ll see.

We’re try­ing to fig­ure out how to fit every­thing we want to do in with the fact that we’d like to be at HOME some­times! We’re adding reg­u­lar vis­its to the YMCA and most like­ly week­ly par­tic­i­pa­tion at UUCM to our sched­ules, and it’s get­ting ter­ri­bly full. We want to spend one evening a week with curiousmay9, sam­bear and I are try­ing to estab­lish a date night for our­selves, and I think shad­owkatt and sam­bear should fol­low up last night’s smash­ing suc­cess with reg­u­lar activ­i­ties togeth­er. Katie and I are, of course, at home much more often than Sam is. We both have aca­d­e­m­ic work, and I have the house to keep up. Sam needs much more writ­ing time than he’s get­ting, although he’s been great about writ­ing long­hand dur­ing his com­mute (get­ting time to type that stuff in is tricky, though). As Sam has said fre­quent­ly, he (and I) want a reg­u­lar gam­ing group. Katie and her friends want to get togeth­er regularly—they’re alter­nat­ing D&D and In Nomine games, and of course like to do things oth­er than gam­ing some­times. Sam and I have talked about tak­ing dance class­es (social/ballroom, not the bal­let and jazz Katie does).

I’m start­ing to envy Hermione’s Time-Turner.

This morn­ing I put on an out­fit that I haven’t worn in 18 months or so and was very sur­prised to find that the pants just did­n’t fit any­more. I can’t fig­ure out why because while I’ve recent­ly had a 10 lb fluc­tu­a­tion in my weight, I’m cer­tain that I’m heav­ier than I was 18 months ago. The pants say differently—no mat­ter how tight­ly I tied their draw­string, they would­n’t stay on my hips! I have anoth­er out­fit just like it in anoth­er col­or, and I’ve always liked them. (I had a third, but my sis­ter “helped” me by wash­ing it because she did­n’t believe the “dry clean only” label.) They look great and they’re incred­i­bly com­fort­able. I don’t have that many clothes, because I detest shop­ping for clothes for myself more than any oth­er sort of shop­ping. While I did­n’t wear those two out­fits often, they were reli­able for the rare occa­sions when I want to wear some­thing oth­er than jeans or a dress. I’m disappointed.
