Saturday night, Valentines Day, we had a nice evening at home. Paul made shrimp appetizers, ribeye steaks, and lobster tails!! It was delicious!!! He gave me a beautiful card and two movies I like. I gave him a new computer chair for the studio. His old one was broken and dangerous!!! We watched Grosse Pointe Blank before retiring for the evening. Unfortunately, Saturday was a work day for us both so we were pretty tired.
Sunday we met Paul's parents for a movie and dinner. We were really excited about them seeing Gran Torino, which we had previously seen, and were so sure they would love. And they did. It is a great film, but not for the easily offended!! Then we went to Red Lobster, which was really nice. After dinner, we ran next door to meet our old friend Mele, who was visiting from Phoenix. She is so sweet and we had a good time catching up.
Unfortunately, I knew Saturday I was coming down with a cold, so by Sunday I was feeling like crap!!! Also, at the movies, I reinjured my hand... I was holding Paul's hand with my left hand and carrying my purse with the bad hand. I re-sprained it. It hurt all night. I slept with the brace on last night. Hopefully, it will be better by tomorrow.
So, I am laying on the couch with the laptop, a cat, New Wave on the satellite radio, and various libations pilled up on my table beside me. I am hoping this cold will run its course by tomorrow and I am thankful today is a holiday. It currently feels like an elephant is sitting on my chest.
Must stop now because my hand is hurting. I am falling apart!!!
