Time to check in with the LJ crew! Today has been a busy day so far, but for the moment I'm clear.
Weekend synopsis: Saw Prisoner of Azkaban
with the gang. Maybe I'm not as in touch with the books as I used to be, but I really liked it. It's in an entirely different class from the other two movies, and the Trio actors have improved noticeably. The only big problem was the complete lack of explanation of the Moony & co. connection. That's a HUGE piece of the story, and I had to catch up the non-readers after the movie. Other than that, great job, Cuaron.
On Saturday I went to my boss's daughter's wedding. It was in a park and not like any other wedding I've been to. Since there was no other way to hide them, the bride and bridesmaids were brought to the area in a limo, and the groomsmen walked up to the limo one at a time to collect their bridesmaids. It was neat. The reception was fun and catered by our famous Corky's barbecue. I met a nice girl who works at Sweet Peppers, the new deli Danielle
told me about awhile back. I hadn't heard it was open, so she told me where it was and our group went there for lunch after church yesterday. The verdict: I like it (I had the Peppers & Beef sandwich) and the tea is good, but it's not McAlister's. Of course, I was also influenced by the insanely large crowd. Crowds stress me out a little.
The rest of Sunday was wonderful. Evan and I had the whole day together, because- answer to prayer- his store just hired someone who likes to work Sundays. So now he only works one Sunday a month. Yay! :) It was an excessively mushy day with plenty of cartoon hearts. We got a little antsy in the afternoon, so we went to Target to get Friends Season 3. Yay again! Later we went back to church for the inaugural service of our new singles Bible study
(I refuse to call it by its name because it's so cheesy). It was good, and we had a good-sized crowd for the first night. Casey showed up, which made me so happy since I'd just been thinking of her. Afterwards, a bunch of us went to El Porton and I had fried ice cream. A perfect ending to a perfect day. (Oh, and also I got to talk to admael
for a while between services- I'd been hoping to run into her. :))
Now it's Monday and I'm overwhelmed by everything that's coming up. Especially in the way of gifts. I have a gift list a mile long right now- birthdays, weddings, Father's Day. Also I'm planning to get some new furniture when Kathy moves out (in only four weeks). Then I'll need money for the New Hampshire trip. All this money can come out of savings, but it's going to be a big hit. I don't have
to get the furniture right away, but I want to. So I have no right to complain. :P I'm just excited about re-nesting and having things my own way.
Hope everyone's having a good day!
