I haven't seen several of these people in awhile and it was just nice to relax and enjoy myself. I know I will pay tomorrow morning pain wise, but it is TB's day off and we were just planning to watch movies anyway.

Oh, he took me out for dinner at Nando's before dropping me off so I didn't even need to cook today and to the dollar store to buy a bunch of craft stuff!
Oh, dear! I love the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency!!!!! Both the books and the BBC series. It sounds like a night out I could really enjoy!

I'm sitting in bed drinking the tea that Hubby brought up to me in bed. He is the greatest man on earth! Just saying.

My sister woke me up to tell me that even her snot is blue, oh the memories of the naughty days I'm laughing so much just thinking about that night that I can barely type!

i keep running across old posts from people who have been gone from dc for a long while, or who have passed. sometimes it is a nice reminder of the person to read a post of theirs, but not so when i don't know if the person has died or just moved on....selkie, if you see this post, i'm talking about you. how about dropping by with a weather report from nw arkansas or something, just to let us know you are doing just fine without us.... :)

Man gas stations that are open in NJ are unreal!! Lines are so long and prices have gone up BIG time!!

I just got back from PA. Took me 1 hour to get there from pull up to filled up 10 minutes! $3.61 a gallon for regular. Amazing. So round trip 2 hr 10 minute. I would still be waiting on line to get 10 gallons (odd/even system here) for maybe a dollar more a gallon.

you go, girl!!! leave it to our very own msm to suss out the best ways and means to a tank full of gasoline in these times of craziness and rationing! here's hoping your land line phone will be up and running soon, and things gradually fall back into normal patterns for you once again. you are not running power off of a generator now, are you msm? we're seeing lotsof stories about people having to share power (and all sorts of other things too) with their neighbors. you certainly keep a very healthy and upbeat attitude during these very trying times, msm. we look forward to continued updates from you. keep a good thought....

Didn't know you have Nando's over there :) I like there new Peri peri spinach, I'll pass on the chicken
Odette, I thought of you as they were showing the countryside of Botswana. Really? A coffee shop and opera house? That's too funny.

You wouldn't like our Nando's here. Chicken is the only protein they serve. The spinach sounds good but we don't have it here. You would be eating salad, fries, veggies or rice!

I am hooked after just one show! We are going to try and watch the whole series but I would also like to read the books!
