Family Day

Started by sleeping a bit later than I intended, but not badly. Ate breakfast and then Skyped the FWiB until he had to leave for lunch. The Kid called just at that point, and we talked a bit.

Then I showered and got ready to go. Made my way to [personal profile] mashfanficchick's mother's place, where the Kid keeps her car, and waited there for her. She was late of course, but that's understandable under the circumstances.

Anyway, we got to Aunt Helen's only a half hour late so that wasn't bad. Oldest and Middle Brothers were already there. We had a great meal of lasagna, and mushrooms as a side, and the sangria that Oldest Brother brought, and all was good. Then we opened presents. I got some tea from Brianne, and moe shirts from both Aunt Helen, and John and Denise.

We talked a lot, and laughed a lot, and it was lots of fun. Denise cut Oldest Brother's hair for him again, and it looks much better. And then it was time to go. John and Denise offered to tke Middle Brother back to his group home, which was a great help. I texted [personal profile] mashfanficchick in the hopes we could get together for the evening, but it didn't work out.

So the Kid and I drove back and parked the car, and took the subway to our respective homes. She texted me that she got home OK, which I wanted to know because the subway was running funny.

And now it's the end of a lovely day.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. All my family.

3. Good food.

4. New clothing.

5. Sangria with fruit.

6. Friends.

Now to see if the crossposting problem is fixed yet. Going on five days now, I believe.

Pretty much a fallow day

I slept fairly late, then got up an breakfasted, then suggested to the FWiB that we Skype. He was going to play Scrabble though so we waited til he was done. Then we had a nice conversation.

After that, I did do one thing that I have needed to do for quite some time; I got a start on my huge bag of "stuff to be shredded". I didn't do it all but I made a noticeable dent, and I now have a big bag of shreds tied up and waiting to be recycled.

Aside from that I puttered on line, played a bit with Pandora, that sort of thing. I meant to read but the only two things I'm working on, I'm having trouble convincing myself to get back to.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. My shredder.

3. Cheese and crackers for lunch.

4. While shredding I found something that had gotten in the bag accidentally, one of my St. Michael medals, the one I got upstate this year.

5. Someone posted the official response to the crossposting issue. And then after that I got the response to my support request.

6. Cats.
