Clayton gets up crazy early to go PT with his Marines, often leaving without even waking me up. Then he's at work until sometime in the afternoon, and comes home to fold laundry and play with Merlin. I know that's vague, but he can actually be home any time between noon and five. In the morning, I do some dishes, tidy the house, and sometimes run a load of laundry. If I've got a plan, I'll make dinner early enough to have some for lunch before heading to work, and take my leftovers to have during my break at work. The other serving or two I leave for Clayton to have when he gets home, and possibly take to work the next day. When I come home in the evening, we usually have just an hour or two to hang out and catch up with each other, before Clayton heads to bed.
On the weekend, I might have to work for a few hours. Clayton usually has the whole weekend off. We take our weekend time to clean the house a little more thoroughly, mow the lawn, play with Merlin, and have friends over. It will probably also end up being grocery shopping time.
The last couple weekends have been very exciting for us. May 4th was FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, and I got my hair cut for the first time in ages. Of course we had to go to our favorite local comic book store to get our usual titles, pick up some free issues, and try out some brand new titles. This past Saturday, the 11th, we had a friend from Cherry Point over to have dinner, play one of his board games (complex, but very fun), and watch BBC America's Supernatural Saturday lineup. By the way, if you get BBC America, and you're not watching Orphan Black, you are really missing out. It's supernatural, but not in a Merlin magic type of way, or in a Doctor Who time/space travel way. It's not far from reality, as the "supernatural" factor in Orphan Black is less supernatural and more about one huge, illegal scientific experiment. The plot is intriguing, and the main actress is astonishingly gifted.
Anyway, we have been so delightfully busy, my head is still spinning from last week, and now I'm about to launch myself into another. I've decided if I'm going to keep up on my blogging and other hobbies, it's going to have to be done during these morning pre-work hours. Now go check out the Pictures page and see the few pictures I've managed to snap of this whirlwind.
