Hello everyone how your weekend?  Boy I have to say last night was a really long event.  I was expecting to be home around 1am at least, we had to stay to the end which at 3am and we didn’t get home until 4:30am this morning.  So tired and the body is just down for the count.  Surprising I don’t have a headache, which I always get when I go drinking.
