weekend adventure

morning y'all (in my head I sound like Miley Cyrus when I say that...and for the record I am counting the minutes until she has an epic Disney Girl breakdown like La Lohan or Brit Brit)

how were your weekends??

Ours started sometime around 3:45am on Friday morning when we woke from a sound sleep to a crashing scrapping peeling sound, it was odd, and we could not place it, like something had been destroyed, not since the mean cheese broke our first tv by tearing it off the stand had I heard such a commotion.

My first thought of course was....what the hell did Scribble do? and How did he get out of his crate?

after the loud noise we heard nothing, no do bark, nothing.

so I got out of bed and headed downstairs to investigate, my poor bubs had to work in a few hours and I knew if he got out of bed he would just make coffee and stay up the rest of the night that is just how he is, so with that I headed downstairs.

about halfway down the stairs I think to myself....I hope no one is breaking into the house...see you would think that the dog would bark if something like that happens, but no, not with Scribble.

UPS can bang at the door, and not a peep out of him, our landlord comes over to fix something and not a single bark or whimper. Yet, when I tiptoe by his covered crate with so much as a single thin mint Girl Scout Cookie, the dog will bark until next Tuesday.

Anyway I digress....I go downstairs and inventigate, check on the dog who is awake but shaking still safely in his bed.

Nothing seems amiss, I tend to calming the puppy and head back to bed, where my bubs is fully awake and saying he is going to get up.

NO!!!

so we decide to read, each our own books until we are sleepy enough for bed.

the night goes on without incident.

My bubs leaves for work also without incident. Later in the day when he is home we decide to go to SPACE (small press and alternative comics expo) so I can have Dave Sim sign my preview copy of Glamorpuss (best book ever), as we are leaving we decide tor eally investigate outside, to see what the commotion was the night before.

Well, lo and behold we notice that a ton of our siding under our awnings was ripped off in the wind the night before, some of it is clear off the house, and then there is "the dangle" of the remaining pieces.

um, what the hell....now the front of our house looks all ghetto with missing siding and a dangle.

thank baby jesus we rent this old house....so hopefully this will be fixed soon, before bats, birds, and other creatures make their home in the gutted awning.


The rest of the weekend was spent going to SPACE again on Sunday as well as some trips to another small comic convention here in town, it was a geektacular weekend.

Most importantly I tried my hardest not to obsess over etsy this weekend and just enjoy our time, and it worked.

though, I am way behind in all I have to do today (as usual) so this will be it for a while. I may not be blogging tomorrow it really depends on the day, I need to get out and vote tomorrow (yay...I have had voters envy since the New Hampshire Primary)

lol. I know that sound all to well. Thank goodness we are putting a really great siding on now. No pieces have come off yet in our gusty and blustery winter.

I can tell you how to install it if you can't get him to come soon enough. lol.

My first reaction is that a car ran into your house, probably because that is usually what wake me up in the middle of the night (5 accidents on my property since September.) Glad it was nothing too major and that you rent.

It's good to hear that you are okay! We had some wicked wind here too yesterday, that's odd. We were wondering where it was coming from. Sounds like you had the perfect weekend though, and I'm glad you did!

Yikes!! There is nothing worse than loud crashes in the middle of the night. You're braver than I ... I would have been shaking my boyfriend alive to go investigate. As I've already convinced myself there's a mass murderer just waiting downstairs!!! LOL ... Maybe I watch too much TV :-)
