A Quiet Day During the Holidays... 
christmas-tree

Watching SNL as I type this. It's a pretty lame episode so far. More odd than funny...

Marilyn and I spent a quiet day, mainly resting and sleeping. Which clearly we needed. We'd planned to do some errands today, but it just didn't happen -- and we felt no guilt at all. Yesterday was exhausting. And we were both exhausted and aching last night and today. I was having leg cramps, I guess from going up and down that darn staircase at work, and walking the many blocks from Bottle and Bottega. Marilyn and I are still recovering, no doubt.

We watched the repeat of The Sound of Music Live tonight (obviously on tape). Not that great, but tomorrow night they're playing "The Sound of Music: Sing-A-Long" (Sunday December 21, from 7:00 - 11:00 p.m.) on ABC. So we can see the real deal, if we want, and sing with it -- like we need help to do that! We've been singing this since we were kids, and doing the harmonies, too.

But we're actually planning to go to dinner tomorrow night with sister Sue and June and Jim. We want to go to Chinese at our local place. We haven't seen much of the three of them, so Marilyn and I are looking forward to this!

We have a pile of errands to get done tomorrow, including the stuff we didn't do today. Hahaha.

I did speak to Donn, regarding the work on Carol's computer, which took place today.

I also was iMessaging with both our friends Adeena and June tonight. It was fun!

I went out and checked on the tarp out back. I had to fix the tarp because one side had come loose. We not only had the promised rain storm (there's all kinds of flooding around here), but there was a lot of wind, too. They were evacuating people from their homes because of flooding. It's pretty awful. Out front yet another branch came down out of the problem tree.

I took out some garbage and did some dishes. Just a few essential tasks...

Hopefully we'll head to bed soon, as we need to really get some things done tomorrow.

If the rain isn't too bad tomorrow, we want to go out to our friend Shari's house.

I am looking forward to going to dinner with you. It will be fun to get to visit. I am so tired but just cannot get to sleep for some reason. Oh well I can nap tomorrow if I need to.

Glad you got some rest. Last week seemed very busy.

Hope dinner goes well for you all!
