Quick Update -- More Soon! Movie Day!!! (Survived the Week...)

First off, THANKS for all the kind words for sister Sue, Marilyn and me about our loss of Wayne. We all appreciate it more than I can say! (We're going to be fine -- though I imagine I'll be blogging about Wayne for some time to come...)

We did actually WORK this morning -- even though I was going around making comments about how it should be a 'wasted day.' (grin)

People had meetings and were on their computers really grinding away. And I set up Stephanie's profile on what used to be Alina's computer -- then put Alina's profile over on Stephanie's old computer. Oh. And I moved Stephanie to her 'new' phone -- and dropped Chris and Alina from the phone system. So I had plenty of IT to do, anyway...

Marilyn had Stacey (the GFP equestrian chairman) coming by today -- so she was worried Stacey would be late. It was almost time to leave for the movie and she and I were going to stay behind, but Stacey finally made it (!!!). So we were able to leave with everyone else.

We left at noon to go to the movie -- and we walked there (it's right downtown). Jeff bought all the tickets (the festival paid), then we all bought our own food/drinks/whatever. But Emily had picked up some candy for each person (!!!), and we had that, too. (How sweet of her!)

I really need to do a REVIEW of "Man of Steel" -- which I am sorry to say really SUCKED big time. If you're a Superman fan, I'd suggest you avoid this film. I'll give more details as to why when I do my review. What a disappointment!

But it was still FUN all of us going to a movie together! Then out for drinks and snacks after. We finally broke up at 5:00 p.m. to head back to the office...

The cool thing? Marilyn and I were home by 6:00! That just almost NEVER happens!

Finally, I've started a new book: Marilyn recommended I check it out. It's "Divergent," by Veronica Roth. Two reviews read: "A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away." (Publishers Weekly (starred review) AND "You’ll be up all night with Divergent, a brainy thrill-ride of a novel." (BookPage) I'm almost half-way through the book, so clearly I think it's entertaining. (smile) Especially when you consider how TIRED I am -- and ready to just nap...

Speaking of, I'm off to bed! Goodnight all.

More about "Man of Steel" tomorrow (I hope)!!!
