Brother slept over a couple of nights so we had some nice, relaxing, just-the-brother-and-the-sister time. Me and Mom went to see Miss Saigon. (It was sooo good. Especially since I have a deep love for both musicals AND helicopters… and muscular men prancing around with no shirts on.) Then, bf and I went to his parents cottage this weekend for some nice lazing about. I bulldozed through a novel in a day, which is something I haven’t done in ages.
