Sunny Sunday

Finally...the sun is shining and the rain has stopped. It looks nice outside but the wind is howling. Looks like the rain has done it's job in decreasing the snow pack some anyway. Lots of areas around the state are under a flood watch but as far as I've heard, they're just keeping a close eye on all the vulnerable areas.

I've been feeling a bit better each day although yesterday I was pretty groggy and lethargic when I first got up. I'm still taking the cold medicine but backed off on the cough syrup since my cough hasn't been keeping me awake at night. There is a light at the end of the tunnel I think.

It's been a fairly busy weekend for me. Friday night George came over for dinner and I made Chicken Parmesan. Sara dropped by and decided to stay since it is one of her favorite dishes. It also gave her some time to talk to George and she thinks he's "wicked nice". She also tried to get the goods on her mom, asking him what I was really like as a teenager. (I was a goody goody) LOL
Sara left around 7:30 and he left around 10. It was pouring down rain here but apparently was snowing up at his house. The roads weren't the best and he probably should have left earlier but he made it home in one piece.

Saturday morning I woke up late and it took me awhile to get my act together. I had a 'therapy' lunch date with two of my girlfriends at 1pm and I didn't want to miss that. LOL We get together about once a month to gab and eat and gab some more. It's something we recently started but it's great fun and a good way to keep up with each other. It's amazing how all of our lives are somehow intertwined, even now. I have known Elaine since high school but I have known Heidi since we were both 4 years old. Elaine and Heidi weren't really friends back in high school but are friends now even though they weren't introduced by me. We all worked for the same company at different times and know a lot of the same people so we have plenty to talk about.

After lunch I had some errands to run and then headed home. George called, said he was bored and asked if he could come on down. He showed up around 4:30 with a movie and an empty stomach. I wasn't hungry but I went with him to the local sub shop and had a beer while he ate. The place is usually packed on a Saturday but with the terrible weather, I guess everyone decided to stay home. We ate, then came back here and watched Perfect Strangers, a movie with Halle Berry and Bruce Willis. It wasn't bad and had an interesting twist at the end. Because he had an early appointment this morning, George left around 9. I was going to go to bed but decided to pop into chat instead. Was good to see a few of my buds...but as usual, chat bores me quite easily and I didn't stay long.

Of course I forgot to set my clocks ahead one hour, but that's ok since I have nothing but housework planned for today. Since I've been sick, I haven't done much around here and it is starting to show. I would really like to muster up enough energy to wash my kitchen floor today. We shall see if that actually happens.

It will be a short week next week at work and that's a good thing. I have Friday off and I have to get my taxes done. Friday night George and I are having dinner with Eric and Jessie and on Saturday night I am going to meet George's daughter Nicole and her husband Matt and their two kids. She was very sweet to extend an invitation to me via email the other day. I was very surprised, and impressed. George had no idea but apparently he's been talking about me and she wants to meet me. It should be an interesting weekend.

Ok I guess I should get my butt in gear and get something done around here.

I hope you are all having a good weekend and those of you who have been or are still sick...I hope you're all feeling better.

I'm glad you're feeling better, too. Wow, dinner with the kids and everything. Things are progressing nicely. :)

Your "therapy" lunches sound like a lot of fun. It's good you have so many things in common to chat about.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Sounds like you will. Have a great week, too! *hugs*

I'm glad you had fun at lunch with the girls. I'm sure George's daughter will think you're just as "wicked nice" as Sara thinks George is, lol.
