Apart from dealing with sickness, I had a nice weekend. On Friday night we got to see Yo Yo Ma in concert, which was amazing. We had planned to go to an SCA event on Saturday, which I regret missing because some of our friends received awards, but Heather wasn't feeling well, and it was her birthday, so we all stayed home and watched Auburn win the SEC football championship instead. Sunday night was Heather's Doctor-Who-themed birthday party, which was fun, although the weather was chilly and wet and miserable. Luckily I found a new winter coat on sale at Sears when I was out Christmas shopping on Saturday. That kept me from being as miserable as I would have been otherwise - I hate to buy things for myself so close to Christmas, but I really needed it.
If all goes as planned, tomorrow night Mack and I will get to see Dar Williams, and if Will ever feels well enough to go back to school, I might have time to go shopping for a Dirty Santa gift for Thursday night's Christmas party for the women of our church. So I'll probably be busy every night this week, and again next week, when I'll have Handel rehearsals every night. And this is a "slow" December by my standards.
