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!)

The carousel horses.

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 ...)


Glad you are feeling better. Reading is great.

Nice pics, Happy Belated Batman!

Woo hoo for time with dad.

You HAVE joined the dark side.... you are hooked on Twilight. Welcome to the club.
I never thought I'd pick up a vampire book, but my friend basically begged me to read it. And I got hooked. This was pre-movie, so I don't feel so bad about buying my ticket to the movie 2 weeks early... LOL
I'm glad you are feeling better.

I haven't caved yet, but I'm sure a day will come where I will have to read the stupid vampire book....

if you get a random present at your office involving delicious little tiny things and a picture of a cute couple on the front, it's from me! There was no place to write a note when I ordered it online. haha. Happy belated Anniversary!

Sounds like you're feeling better which is good to hear. And Black raspberry ice cream sounds delicious! Glad you had a nice weekend despite the sickly start.

Haha! Thanks for the shout-out. I will say the chain kept me up last night because the cats would not stop meowing at it!! :)

I was anti Happry Potter until after the 1st movie they I couldn't read them fast enough. But vampires? I'm still not sure.

Twilight is so good! I loved the first book, but I am stuck half way through the third right now. So far I like the first one the best! Glad you are feeling better!!
