On Sunday we were invited to a friend's for dinner. There were 5 couples and we had a delicious meal and a pleasant afternoon and evening.
I had nothing scheduled for Monday and Tuesday and took advantage of the time to read Nelson DeMille's book, The Panther. He is one of my favorite authors and I discovered he was two books ahead of me. I have also downloaded Radiant Angel and will probably plow throught that pretty quickly too.
Wednesday I had an afternoon Service Meeting where I received my instructions for the year as Gift Distribution Chair. There is not a lot to do right now but some things are time sensitive and I need to get with Susan before we leave to do what needs to be done.
That afternoon I went to Happy Hour at the country club and had another issue with trying to eat there. After a glass of wine we ordered dinner. I asked for a BLT flatbread and fruit and she said I couldn't have fruit as a side so I said bring the fries. After 45 minutes one of the ladies who is a member went to complain. We all had another glass of wine and after about 15 minutes more we received our food. I was served a chicken sandwich with bacon and fruit! The funny thing is that I didn't realize I received something I didn't even order until I was relating it to Ted that night. I guess I was just really hungry by then. The good part is we got comped our meal! I gave the server $10 as a tip because it wasn't his fault.
It was back to the thrift shop for four hours on Thursday. I bought a few new things that came in, all for other people. I found a beach bag with Morgan's name monogrammed on it that will come in handy on vacation and a Cowgirl shirt. She really liked the sparkles. There were four American Princess dresses in size 5, new with tags, so I bought one for Lily with the second one for when the twins can wear them. I also bought a size 3/4 dress for Ally but she doesn't like it. I will take it to the family reunion and it will fit someone. Final cost for all $13!
We learned Ted's sister's father-in-law passed away on Sunday. I looked up his obituary and was taken aback at his having 90 grandchildren and great grandchildren. Then I added up Ted's parents and it was 100 with the newest one due checking in at #101! You need to have a lot of children yourself to hit these numbers. RIP Mr. G.
