Happy Friday The 13th!  
I don't believe in superstition, and I think 13 is an awesome number (Dave Twardzik's old number, as I recall), and I'm always happy to see Friday arrive! So, let's par-tay, whether in honor of that or the fact that it's karmasoup's birthday. Rock on!

My parents may or may not be coming tomorrow, and staying overnight. If don't see or hear from them around noon tomorrow, we'll know for sure. Somehow, "We'll let you know when we see how it's going" (i.e., whether they were too sick to make the trip) tends to become, "Oh, we decided to wait" OR "We'll be at your place in an hour." No way of knowing which until we hear from them or they show up at the door. *sigh*

I'm hoping they delay a week, so I can beat back the chaos in the house. We've either been busy or gone, so the clutter-tide is rising. I still haven't finished my taxes yet, since I can't figure out what to do about the random stock sale and cost/loss basis. I might just take it all as profit—it's $90. It's too hard to unsnarl the past 19 years of stock-split/forking-off-new-company/selling-new-company to designate a purchase-price for those shares. But for the future, I think I DO need to sell that "problem" stock, and also to stop reinvesting dividends, since that just complicates things down the road. :(

We finished S2 of Justified. I loved Margo Martindale as Mags Bennet—I've had a weak spot for her since The Riches. As for Raylan, well... he's being a complete idiot, regarding romance. No spoilers, just the facts: when someone doesn't appear to even like you, and doesen't treat you well, don't take up with them. Especially more than once. Yeesh!

Any plans for the weekend (besides taxes)? We'll have sunny weather, after a week of rain, so I'm hoping to do some yardwork and other tidying. Not exciting, but satisfying.

I hate it when people are iffy about plans. So I hope it all works out with your parents.

I know what you mean about the clutter tide (sigh)

I hope you get the yardwork and taxes done. Satisfying can be better than exciting, sometimes:)

My Dad is pretty typical that way. He's kind of a narcissist, so everything is about him-- even his uncommunicated thoughts. :(

This didn't used to be much of a problem for us until we had kids. At that point, all of the papers/etc. related to them pushed everything over critical mass, not to mention how they distract you and take up energy so that you dont' seem to keep on top of things as well.

They're worth it, but their chaos causes ripple-effect chaos. Maybe that should be my LJ Idol topic, since that's the other thing I have to do this weekend, and I hate that prompt! :0
