Good day/Bad day?: Fri was good, but...
First, Happy Birthday, Dad! Hope it's shaping up to be a good day and a good year.
It is nice to be in the Motherland, though I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself yet. So. Last night was smooth sailing to get into town and drop Olive off with the grandparents (maybe not smooth for her--she was just a little mad when I left!). Met up with Monica and we unwound and had dinner, and then headed over to the Ben Folds show, and then the stomach flu hit her! Poor thing. Her kids got it earlier in the day. She wound up heading back to IL early and I stayed at the show solo. (The show was great!) Now I'll have to choose my own adventure for the day. And I'll also hope that I don't get the flu--that would not be good on many levels.
Not a bad situation to be in, though. Better than Ben's night as he dealt with the furnace going out! From a cold night in the house, to a cold day of ice fishing... I can take it easy and just be self-indulgent today, hang out in the whirpool tub, take a nap, whatever (staying at County Clare, and they make lovely fluffy omelettes for breakfast). Or I could be more active, go explore the city, museum time, maybe a movie. I'm guessing it'll be a combo of both, but I'm just not sure in what order. I'll fill you in if there are highlights.
Still to have an Irish coffee. Tonight, definitely.
Have a good day!
