Flu'd Out and Father's Day.
The end of last week was a bit of a bust, because I spent the majority of Thursday and Friday hiding in my bed with the flu. (Not the swine variety, though. According to my doctor, "just the flu.") I haven't read many blogs, I haven't answered any emails, and the only thing I've done is devour the first 3/4 of the Twilight book.
Note: I kind of resisted reading Twilight because of all the swoony buzz over Robert Pattinson and vampires and all that stuff. I'll admit it - I scoffed. But then I remembered how rabid I was over the Harry Potter series, despite my best intentions. And then my mother happened to drop the book off at my house. And then I happened to get sick and have little energy for anything other than napping and reading. This perfect storm of events now has me itching to get home so I can finish the book and pick up the next one in the series. Sigh. I'm a nerd. A nerd who has digressed. Hang on ...
I was on the mend by Saturday afternoon, thankfully in time to celebrate Batman's 30th birthday with her at the Ivy Restaurant in Boston. (After some wicked traffic on 95 North in MA, leaving us almost two hours late for the event, but getting into Boston was worth it. I love Boston. And also, the birthday girl was stuck in the same traffic, so at least we were there before her!)
And on Sunday, Chris and I spent time with my father for Father's Day. We don't often have the chance to hang out with my dad, so having a leisurely lunch (steaks and burgers - manly food!) and then some black raspberry ice cream from St. Claire's Annex in Watch Hill before our drive home to CT was a very nice, relaxing way to spend the day.
So what have I missed? (And also, did you know that Sara actually has a paper chain counting down the days to FFL? Go see ...)
