Even when weekends aren't your only break, they still fly by. It's insane. I think all I've managed to do this weekend is two loads of laundry and watch The Masters. I leveled up in Farmville2. Otherwise... I've been fairly immobile, by necessity rather than by choice.

Book TV hasn't been all that interesting this weekend. I never shared my library list from last week - I read a funny book by a wedding photographer and Mackenzie Phillips autobiography. I am currently reading a biography of Bill O'Reilly (not written by him) and I've still got a book on Ted Turner to read. Mackenzie Phillips' story was really sad - her drug use and the neglect she suffered as a child was really horrendous. I'm not sure I buy everything she says as far as the incest and stuff regarding her father. It made me feel like people who are addicts have absolutely no hope of ever really kicking their addiction. I heard somewhere that drug addicts have only two possible outcomes: jail or death. She was supposedly clean at the time the book was written and I hope that's still the case (but doubt it).
Austin somehow managed to fall asleep last night at 6pm and slept through until this morning. It's unusual having him awake all day. He typically can't get to sleep until after 4am and then sleeps most of the day. He was feeling productive this morning so he cooked breakfast, cut the grass and built a worm bed for Mawmaw. He really loves working with wood. It was such a horrible ordeal last Summer trying to get him to keep the grass cut but my parents moved the riding lawnmower up here so now, of course, he loves it. I'm hoping that fascination lasts all Summer. My mother cannot STAND for the lawn not to be cut so if Austin doesn't do it she gets out there and does it and she really doesn't need to be cutting the grass in the Georgia Summer heat. Austin has been relatively helpful of late and I'm glad. Less stress for me.
Tonight is the season premiere of the last season of Mad Men. Since I just started watching it a few months ago, I haven't had the long period of suspense that most people have had. They're going to run seven episodes now and in a year run seven more episodes which is weird to me but.... whatever. I'm looking forward to watching it tonight. I haven't seen most of the last season because it wasn't available on Netflix yet so I'm not entirely caught up on things. Still will enjoy watching.
And that's pretty much the story of my weekend. Love and hugs, y'all.
