It started out with Fat Tuesday. Good food, good friends, good fun! NOT good for the diet.
Then on Thursday, I went to see Kingsman. It was a rollicking good time! Really enjoyed the movie! But again, popcorn NOT good for the diet.
Then my guy came over and installed a new cat door in my bedroom door. Now I can close the door against noise from visitors and not be woken up all night long.
Then it was 3rd Friday. Went to Steitz’s for fish fry. Great food, great friends, great fun! Again, NOT good for the diet.
Finally, Saturday came, along with what I having been waiting for! 2Cellos concert downtown! It was an unbelievable day from start to finish, except for the train home. Went with my awesome friend Nancy, did a bit of sight seeing at the Bean and the skating rink, then a tasty dinner at Park Grill. Again, NOT good for my diet, lol. On to the venue, and 2Cellos! Met some Cello Girls before the concert started, and then the most unbelievable musical experience of my life! Got to chat with more Cello Girls after the show, but was not able to do the meet and greet because of the long line, and we had to catch the last train home. But even without that, it was still an incredible day! I could not sleep at all that night.
On Sunday, I tried to nap a bit before I attended an Oscar party at my friend’s house. Great food, great drinks (I tried a Moscow Mule and liked it!), and prizes for ballot winners! I even won the grand prize, a nice trophy and 2 movie passes! Most importantly, the great friends.
Speaking of the Oscar party, they really need to take a page from the Golden Globes. The Globes start and end on time, and all the while the nominees are eating and drinking and having fun, which can lead to some of the best acceptance speeches! They only present the most popular awards. And even though some of the categories at the Oscars are VERY important, they tend to drag the show out to wayyyyyyyyyyyyy over 3 hours. Come on Oscars, people have to get up for work in the morning! Maybe they should move it Saturday nights if they are going to CONSISTENTLY run long.
On Monday morning, I felt like I was beat with rubber hoses, so I went to swim class to stretch out the muscles in the pool. I had done a lot of walking and standing and dancing on Saturday, so I had some aches and pains. The water felt wonderful, and I ran around the pool for about an hour. Later that day, I did feel some leg cramping etc., but a banana and a Propel took care of that!
Today, Tuesday, I feel pretty damn good. Will go to Walmart for my weekly shopping and walk the store for about an hour for my daily exercise.
All in all, a GREAT week! Thanks to all my wonderful friends for some awesome good times!
