I did have a lovely and relaxing shabbos despite being somewhat rushed, a tiny bit stressed, and a lot distracted Friday afternoon.
Today has been relatively productive. This is a good thing. Whoo hoo. I wish I'd gotten a little more work done, but all in all, I got a large number of things done.
We went to lunch with Jason and Leah who are visiting from Los Angeles. It was great to see them and fantastic to finally see their little one, Max.
After lunch, I dropped Seth off at work, and then stopped at the women's gym I found nearby and joined. Hopefully I'll actually go. Now I have to go buy workout clothes. I own ONE pair of sweatpants. It's not going to be easy to go to the gym in a floor-length skirt.
After the gym, I came home, spent some time working, talked with my mother, with Bea and various assorted folks.
Then I prepared and cooked the standing rib roasts that I had intended to prepare Friday night but hadn't been able to do because of my bad car karma.
While the roasts were cooking, I did some more work on the journal and relaxed a teeney bit.
I hate the journal.
I took one of the roasts to Jon and Laura and chilled with the kid and watched a little of the football game.
Speaking of the football game, did I mention that New England is going to the SuperBowl? :-)
After leaving Jon and Laura's, I came home, did a little bit more work and talked to Bea for about the 7th time today. Then I went to pick Seth up from work.
While on my way to pick Seth up, I heard a version of "Everlasting Love" by U2. Pretty amusing. I think I must have it. That, and Cake's version of "I Will Survive". I will acquire these via iTunes, I believe. Yay for iTunes. Or I might just buy the albums. But I can use iTunes to research what I need to get. Yay for iTunes. :)
Having picked Seth up and arrived back at home, all the while continuing to prove that I have bad car karma right now, we are relaxing a bit. Seth is catching up on "Enterprise" and I'm procrastinating getting more journal work done. Sigh.
Tomorrow has more journal stuff in store for me, in addition to a trip to pick up my rental car for while my car is in the shop thanks to my continued bad car karma. Suffice it to say, I will be getting the extra insurance from Enterprise. Then after that, we'll go to a bookstore for a browse and then maybe back over to Jon and Laura's for more chillin' with the kid. Yeah, they're cool too, but really, I just go to hang out with the kid. :-D
