Good Day. Of Course, It's Vacation!

Marilyn and I had a really good day today.

She had to go to her doctor for a blood draw at 7:30 a.m. -- so we did get up early, which was actually cool. (We called sister Sue to go for Starbucks, but she wasn't quite up and around yet.)

So we ended up going to get the license plates for our new car. Bob (our cool sales guy) put the tags on for us, put the plates on and then had the car washed while we were there!!! (woo hoo)

We did meet cousin Linda briefly in St. John at Starbucks.

Then we came home and watched TV, played online and played Zuma -- all fun. We didn't go get our manicures and pedicures, but whatever.

Yesterday we watched "The Ghost," with Ewan McGregor (who doesn't LOVE Ewan?). It's an excellent movie and Ewan did a great job. Of course, what do I really need to say -- the Director is Roman Polanski...

Tonight we watched Robin Williams -- Weapons of Self Destruction. Hysterical! The man is such a talent.

Good news today! Prop 8 OVERTURNED: Gay Marriage Ban Struck Down In California!!! (woo hoo)

All-in-all a good day! We're thinking we might drive up the Gorge tomorrow (maybe). And we might drive to the beach on Friday (maybe). We're not locked in to doing anything, because it's so lovely NOT to have our days planned out. Part of the FUN of vaca.

Well, vacation or no, I need to go do the garbage and recycling, which I haven't even STARTED yet! (yikes)
