So this weekend was pretty uneventful.

On saturday night I took Tam to see Superman Returns. I'm never sure how much she gets out of the movies we see these days, and she was so fidgety after 90 minutes that I'll admit to being embarrassed by the ruckus we were making, but at the end she said she really liked the movie which is what makes it all worthwhile. I tucked her in and promised to see her on sunday, which always makes me feel better than when I leave my next visit open ended.

Saturday morning I got to go golfing again with our friend Rick. I met him and his wife Tracy through Tam when we first started dating (Tammy and Tracy were roomates before we met in college) and they've been friends of ours ever since, over 9 years now. When Tam's illness started getting obvious she pulled us back from everybody so there was a bit of a gap, but I invited Rick out to weekday golf with dad and we kept in touch that way for a while (until Tam was too sick and I gave it up to get her ready in the mornings before work). I haven't seen much of Rick and Tracy since then, in fact it was a year and a half ago that he and I last played golf and followed it up with thanksgiving dinner in the fall of 2004. This weekend I did dinner at their place after golf again, only this time it was barbecued ribs (awww yeah!) They've got a place out in the country now that I know Tam would love, so I asked if we could visit them in two weekends and they were happy to extend an offer.

Saturday night I was out of town again for a bit to catch up with some friends in Oakville, then sunday I had Tam back at home as promised. She's been getting difficult enough lately that we've filed to have her transferred back to Freeport to get her meds adjusted, but I'm happy to say that last weekend (when I dared to have her home overnight for the first time in months; something special for her birthday) and again this sunday, she was no trouble at all. On the way back to the nursing home I asked her about visiting Rick and Tracy's place and she was thrilled. I just hope nothing bad happens between now and then to cancel it, keep your fingers crossed.

For some reason I just never seem to be satisfied these days though. I had a great weekend with Tam and should be happy about that, but I think of all the parties I missed (the crew at Sutra Tiki Bar then TIL on friday, and Comfort Zone sunday where it turns out that Tamara & Candice had been -- I haven't seen them since our Miami trip back in March!) and I just feel bummed out. Next weekend I won't be partying either, my tile order finally came in last month and I really need to get it taken care of. Sigh... when did dancing my ass off become such an addiction again?
