» Saturday, December 26, 2009Birthdays and Bonuses
Following some good old fashioned after-Christmas depression, we had a nice time at Alice's birthday dinner, even if she couldn't eat much of it. She has had bariatric (sp?) surgery recently and had some problems due to medication she was taking that she should no longer be taking, but there was a lag in realizing that on the doctor's part. It was a nice mix of friends and family, and our waiters at Ruby Tuesday were super.
Afterwards James and I went to the Borders at Parkway Pointe—either Old Navy was having a great after-Christmas sale or everyone was at the movies, because the parking lot was worse than it had been before Christmas!—and I found the next Victoria Thompson book in hardback in the bargain bin (now I don't have to wait for the paperback) and another Inspector Rutledge mystery. Then we came home, peeking at Christmas lights all the way.
Chat was slow tonight, only Erich, Jen, Emma and myself, since everyone else is still away with relatives, but we did get to see The Poseidon Adventure on the Fox Movie Channel...I miss the marathon on New Year's Eve!
And so St. Stephen's Day came to an end.
