oh, i love my friends! love love love! super blessed and so happy to have them, too!
oh, i love my job! love love love! super blessed and happy to have the perfect job for me.
work was very well today, productive & got to help out some really nice ppl. and had a delicious salad for lunch! i mention this because i want to remember to get that salad again. *laugh*
after work, i called mom because i thought it was her day off (her days off are all changing now w/ summer approaching) & so i wanted to see if she was free for a movie. she was not. she was on her way to a sisters dinner for her birthday (my aunts on dad's side). she invited me to come along, and i was happily just down the road from chili's, where they were meeting. she said she'd be there in about 15 minutes, and it only took me 5 to get there, so i waited in the car playing on FB on my phone. heh.
she called later to say she was giving someone a ride & would be a little late, so to just order her a water w/ lemon. *laugh* dinner was at 5:30 & i arrived at 5, so i just waited in the car until aunt nancy's car pulled up & out came aunts nancy, judy & vickie. hugs all around! aunts sharon & sandy arrived at just that time as well (wow, they all had pretty good timing!! LOL), so we went in & got a booth & looked over menus & chatted til mom got there. then there was more menu looking & chatting! : )
i hadn't really looked at the menu when it was my turn to order, so i just went w/ steak & shrimp. but then mom asked if she could order from the lunch menu & our waitress said sure, and then i looked & saw chicken bacon quesadillas, so i changed my order to that & a bowl of chicken enchilada soup. comparable to the chicken tortilla soup at work (which means very, very good!). everything was delicious & i would have pictures except my camera was at home so the battery could be charged, as i wasn't expecting to be out w/ the girls! *laugh*
it was a super fun dinner, and i'm happy i was invited. and during dinner aunts nancy & judy were talking about going to chicago at the end of the month to meet jenni (cousin; aunt judy's daughter who lives in alaska & will be in chi for a conference). i invited myself along jokingly, but then they invited me for real so i said, YOU BETCHYA!! woot! and in may we're having aunt vickie's birthday dinner at aunt sandy's. she & phil share a birthday. as she says, "phil was my 17th birthday present!" LOL
my plan when i got home was to log in & see if april was still around, because we didn't get to talk yesterday much & i thought we would get to tonight, but then i didn't get home til 8! about five minutes after i walked in, tho, matthew called, and we proceeded to chat for a couple hours. i'm so happy i was HOME this time!! : ) we talked about the last time we actually hung out in person - EIGHT YEARS AGO - at the st louis zoo, w/ erin! it's about time for another visit, i think. : )
i tried to watch an episode of GH while i typed, but the computer is tired from yesterday's alcatraz-a-thon, apparently! ah well, i am off to bed. i hope your tuesday was unexpectedly awesome, too!!
