I'm very low-key tonight (no pun intended on my name, lol). I had a good time at my friends' place. We had sushi and grilled chicken and steaks, then had drinks around the fire while the moon shone down on the river and us. It was beautiful and ethereal. It felt so good to laugh like that again. I know we all need to spend more time together, especially Michelle and I, we're like sisters we've known one another so long. We both suffer from depression and when we get together we unload about life's problems and our feelings and then spend the rest of the time cracking each other up. While the adults talked the kids played flashlight tag and watched movies in the living room. I slept like a baby when we got home, and didn't awaken until 9 a.m. this morning which was amazing. I felt renewed.
Today we did the weekly grocery shopping in record time and finished the shopping for Zachary. I swear this time on my life I'm not buying another thing for him! The problem is that his birthday is 5 days after Christmas so we have to do both. Since we got him a tablet I think that's going to be his birthday present this year. That's the big gift. I know he'll love it. 🙂
I took a nice nap and then got up and helped my husband cook dry-rubbed ribs. I talked with a friend for awhile on the phone and then my family ate dinner. It was delicious! We got the ribs just right this time. Then some ice cream and now relaxation time for me and everyone else. I'm probably going to go to bed soon after I shower. I don't know why this blog just changed color in this paragraph, that's kind of strange. Whatever.
I hope you all have as nice a Sunday as I did Saturday. I wish you the best!
