Blue Monday...

Sometimes it all just goes "screwy"!

Laura's birthday dinner turned out, in spite of it being 20 outside with a 35 mph wind while I was grilling. I split the salmon into halves because one was so much thicker than the other and put the thin one on the "cool" side of the grill, but between the marinade dripping from it and the mushrooms, the thin one caught fire once or twice...still edible, but not perfect like I hoped for!

Dottie was exhausted Saturday morning so we slept in, no movie that morning. With Bill and Laura we watched "The Lake House" and "Robin Williams Live". "The Lake House" we had seen in the theatre, and I loved it (sucker for romance, sorry!) as did Dottie after she saw it. The "Robin Williams Live" was a DVD I gave Dottie for her birthday that we hadn't seen, and though parts were a bit embarassing to watch with your kids, it had me in tears from laughing so hard...it was an HBO special from early in George the 3rd's administration. Made me really look forward to my first colon exam...now overdue by about a year...(not due to fear of the exam but fear of co-pay).

Sunday morning her stomach was "queasy" so we didn't dare do an early movie again. I had hoped to make it to "Pan's Labyrinth" at 10 that morning, then "Volver" at 4 in the afternoon. By then she felt better, but John was coming by to borrow a cord for Noel's laptop, and it's seldom we get to sit and talk to him anymore, so we stayed home and watched TV yesterday. Dottie was actually happy not to have left the house all day...

Sometimes when your "blogfriends" are going through a rough time it's very hard to not want to jump on an airplane just to deliver a hug...

LOL.
I'm third... but, sadly I have nothing to sell.

Hope Dottie is feeling better. I know exactly how she feels wanting to stay home. Sometimes it makes me feel better to stay in my pj's all day!

I am the queen of PJ days! Love them. I watched Kinky Boots this weekend as well as Transamerica. A true conincidence.

Kiran and I love nothing more to hand in the PJs until when ever and if ever we decide to get dressed. Lose days are few and far between but we enjoy them anyway.

Hope Dottie is feeling better......

Miss you,

Mary

Sounds divine. I have been meaning to see a few movies at the theatre as well but never do. BUT I adore Netflix.

Hope you are well,

Sorry Dottie wasn't feeling well and your salmon wasn't perfect, but wasn't it fun to stay home to watch movies? Especially in pjs! I too am a Netflix addict. Watch them late at night when all are sleeping and I am not!

Hugs to you Alan!
