2011/050: My Day

I’d like to thank everyone for the Birthday wishes yesterday. I had a pretty good day.
Greg took off from work, and after dropping the kids off at school (he took Sara, I took Melissa), we ran a few errands, and then went to the movies. It’s been waaay too long since we’ve been on a “date”. Pretty sure it was New Year’s Eve 2002, when we were in Maryland, visiting family and my sister-in-law watched Melissa while Greg and I went out to dinner and a movie.
Anyway, we went to see Just Go With It. I loved it, such a funny movie. Greg didn’t complain either.
After the movie we had a little bit of time to go home before it was time to pick up Sara from school and go grocery shopping. Back home for a little bit before getting Melissa from school, and then run another errand before dinner.
Dinner didn’t go quite as planned. I really wanted to try this new restaurant, but it would have taken at least 30 min. to get there from where we were (maybe longer, with all this rush hour traffic), and then there was a good chance that we would have had to wait for a table, and I was just too hungry for that. So, I decided on On The Border instead. We’ll just try the other restaurant another time.

Just go see it!


2010/138: Bonus: Birthday Lunch

I met with a friend for a very belated Birthday lunch today. I met Claudia at the gym sometime last fall, when I walked in shortly after her and someone at the front desk mentioned to me that she was from Germany, too. He also mentioned to Claudia that I was from Germany (well, close enough anyway) and we bumped into each other (not literally) a while later and introduced ourselves.
We ran into each other from time to time and chatted for a few minutes each time. When we found out that we’re the same age, AND our birthdays are only within about two weeks of each other (I’m the older one 😛 ), we decided to celebrate together when the weather was warmer. Unfortunately sick kids, vacations, bad weather, and busy schedules prevented us from meeting up… until today! And I have to say that we picked the perfect day, because it was just beautiful outside, and we did ask for a table outside.
We met at the restaurant at 11:30 am and didn’t leave until 2:10pm, when we had to go because it was time to pick up the kids. We probably could have sat there all day otherwise 🙂
