I think the post-vacation lack of stress is wearing off. Today my project manager had to ask me if I was OK after a meeting. I try so hard to control my "I want to kill someone" face, but it gets to where I forget what neutral, non-scowling feels like.
But I digress. Saturday we went out to see Michael's parents and they took us to Stone Mountain because it's time once again for...
ART Station for 27 years this year! You walk through the historic village portion of Stone Mountain by lantern-light, hearing storytellers tell ghost stories (most of which are humorous, so it's very kid-friendly). I love this event; you never know what stories you are going to get, or what's going to happen. We had the added "feature" of the fireworks going on during our tour, so it was fun to see how each storyteller worked the loud BOOMs into their stories. =) (A lot of them also worked in the number 27 in honor of 27 years...but I don't think they all did. I'd love to hear if you can confirm or deny if you go! Advance tickets are only $12 and proceeds go to support live theater!)
You weren't supposed to take pictures during the storytelling, but I did hang back at the end of one of the stories told in the cookhouse (most are outside) and got our lovely storyteller to mug for the camera. =)
Sunday was errands, church, football (what a crazy Falcons game...yes, sadly we've taken to watching professional football since college football's been so atrocious this season), choir, etc....but we did find this (at Target, of all places):
