Wow. What a week. I spent Wednesday and Friday at the doctor’s office with my mother. And the funniest thing happened: I wrote in my composition book on Friday while I waited for her to come out of her appointment. 622 words
On Thursday, I had to go to the office of unemployment to justify my unemployment cheq
ues. I’m okay doing that. It was a bit of a waste oftime, but they are, in essence, helping me with the bills as I look for a job.
That night, I met with my writing group for the first time! I think we are going to do really well. I enjoy their work (we exchanged pages) and I look forward to our next time together.
My aunt arrived Thursday night, so, in addition to the doctor’s on Friday, I spent the day with mum and my aunt doing a bitof shopping – and lunch at Olive Garden. I love love love their salad and soup. Probably because it is super salty.
Saturday was my anniversary. 17 years! And we spent the night with my mum and aunt at California Pizza Kitchen (and I wonder why I’m not losing any weight). We got gifties and hung out.
On Sunday, we made crock-pot meatloaf (it’s AWESOME!) and watched Hot Fuzz. I love those guys!
On Monday, I picked up my aunt and we jetted downtown for a day at Powell’s City of Books.
But not before we ate at The Original: A Dinerant. I had the most amazing tofu scramble and she had crème brulee french toast.
She snagged these gems because they aren’t in her local library. Bruce Hale’s Chet Gecko series is delightful!
And yesterdaywas spent with the hubby because he was super sick. Poor honey. But he’s back at work now – and feeling better.
Today? Blogging (obviously – duh), writing a little, and going to Panera Bread with my aunt and mum. And I hope to never eat out again for a while. Or… whenever. ☺
