This Weekend... Very Busy

So, here's how the weekend happened:

Friday

-- Worked from home
-- Had morning doctor's appointment
-- After work, finished food for dinner (did most of cooking on Thursday, but was afraid there wasn't enough food, so added a dish at almost the last minute)*
-- Set up for Shabbat dinner and Shabbat in general
-- Sent mabfan off to shul (he had yahrtzeit for his mother on Shabbat) about 10 minutes after he got home from work
-- Lit candles just a few minutes into the 18 minutes
-- Set table and then read and waited for guests to arrive
-- Guests came in waves, until all eight of us (including mabfan and the two friends meeting him at shul) had arrived
-- Dinner filled with fun conversation and followed by Settlers of Catan
-- Eventually, sleep

Saturday

-- Up early for shul
-- Really enjoying shorter walk (with significantly less hill) to shul
-- mabfan and I sponsored kiddush in honor of his mother's yahrtzeit, and people thanked us for the extras (red peppers and clementines) we had
-- Home for lunch after shul
-- Very brief nap
-- Back to shul for Mincha and Shalosh Seudot and Ma'ariv because mabfan was the speaker at Shalosh Seudot
-- Home after Ma'ariv, with two potential events to attend
-- In the end, decided to attend neither event. Instead, unpacked some more boxes of books and relaxed.
-- Sleep relatively early for a Saturday night, but we needed it.

Sunday

-- Up around 8:30
-- Unpacked more boxes of books. We most likely need additional bookcases (this is not particularly a surprise)
-- Out to Harvard St. to do errands and then meet a friend for lunch
-- Birthday party for friends' one-year-old daughter
-- Out to Lexington for dinner with relatives. Discovered on way from Alewife to house in Lexington that there had been illness in house earlier that day. Decided to not have dinner in Lexington.
-- Returned to Brookline and had dinner at Rubins, as mabfan was in the mood for chicken, and our place is set up milchig.
-- Home after dinner
-- Got things ready for going to work on Monday
-- Watched some TV
-- Cursorily watched Superbowl (mostly for commercials)
-- Sleep after end of game

*Final menu for Friday night dinner was: roasted garlic to go on challah; starter of black bean and chocolate chili from Moosewood; main course of Mexican Lasagna, introverte's cheese kugel, and vegetable stew from Moosewood; dessert of chocolate chip cookie bars and vanilla ice cream.
