I took off Thursday and Friday to enjoy a long weekend, and spent some time with my niece, who is still struggling with jealousy about her baby brother. We had a fun Thursday visiting with her friend (and her friend's mommy, who is my friend :)) and going to the waterpark. Trying to get all of our schedules in alignment to hang out is pretty tough, so I'm happy we were able to work it out. Afterwards I took her out for ice cream and took her home. When I tried to leave, she followed me out the door and started to cry. I took her to the library and the movies on Friday, and she cried when it was time to leave. I'm a total sucker, it kills me when she starts to cry like that. It's also a new thing, and I'm not sure why it's been happening. She's also way more scared of stuff in movies than she used to be. I took her to see Wall-E and she insisted halfway through that it was too scary and she wanted to leave.

Saturday we had a fun game night and scheduled our next two game nights, which is good since weekends are starting to fill up. Sunday I went to brunch with my mom and we saw the play Deathtrap, which we both really enjoyed. The actors were excellent and we had good seats. Neither my mom nor I had seen this show before, so we were both surprised by the many twists and turns (as were our fellow audience members, given all the gasps and murmurs). I'm really glad we were able to go, it was a lot of fun for both of us.

While I was gone on Sunday, Zen replaced our back door. It was in bad shape (dry rotted) for a long time, and then a week or so ago he locked himself out of the house with no phone or anything, so he broke into the house by cutting a hole into the door. We had it covered up with additional wood and tape, but my mom had brought over her old front door several years ago with the intention of replacing the back door with it. Zen said it took a couple hours but now it looks really nice, and it feels very solid. I was surprised he got it done so quickly, and pleased (I've always been paranoid about someone breaking into our house, so feeling like it was so easy to get in the back door was making me extremely uneasy). We got into a discussion about painting the door and to my delight, Zen offered to paint it like a Tardis! He's got a list of other things that he's working on, but I'm very excited about this!

Today when I came in to work, I discovered that someone had tidied up my desk a bit. I don't know who or why. It wasn't a huge mess, but they wrapped up the cords neatly and put all my binder clips in a container and all my pens in one cup, and hung up a little bag someone had gotten me. I might not have even noticed if it wasn't for the cords and the bag. I have a friend at work who might have done it but she's been totally swamped so I can't imagine she took 20 minutes out of her busy day to make my desk more tidy. Just not sure what to make of it. This happened once before and no one ever claimed responsibility.
