Did some lovely retail therapy this morning... jeans (Size 8 WOOT!), green sweater, new pyjamas... pants for the boys (as ALL of theirs have holes in the knee or similar. How do they DO that?)
I also bought some drawing books, at the recommendation of my sweet Mother. Drawing on the right side of the brain. Pfft. As if I need another hobby. Gonna give it a shot, though.
I'm going on a women's retreat this weekend that I'm not terribly excited about... and will be performing (for free :( ) a series of short monologues that I wrote for the occasion. They aren't stellar. I probably shouldn't want payment for the amount of work I've done preparing for the whole thing. Will be better than mediocre. That's the best I can promise. Meh.
The up side? Two days away...
The down side? With a bunch of women... who aren't always necessarily nice...
I don't normally buy, recommend (or eat) foods that turn my tongue a different color, but I bought Archer Farms yogurt covered blueberries this morning, and have fallen in love. Get thee to a Target Store and buy them. You will not be disappointed. I adore blueberries. Hands down, favorite fruit. (of course, they're also the most expensive). Totally worth the fact that you look like a6 year old with a blue tongue.
We are having dinner with an older gentleman tonight whose wife just recently went into a facility for Alzheimer's. Sad story. I don't know how I'd handle it if one day my husband looked at me and didn't have any idea who I was. This man is fascinating, though, and he & hubby have become quite good friends. I heartily approve of 80 + year old friends. No dragging him to football games or bars. I'm so selfish!
That said, we have a sitter coming tonight, so I must go and clean so she doesn't know I'm a slob. Hope she doesn't read this.
I'm ready for my Thanksgiving vacation to the east coast!
