Friday - Michael had the day off. I made bran muffins for breakfast. They were really good and brought back good memories of Mom making them. After breakfast, we actually went back to bed. It was such a nice nap! We spent the afternoon running around doing errands - haircuts, paid bills, lunch, Target, Borders and home. Michael bought a new shelving unit for the laundry room and then he bought me some art supplies and 2 magazines! We took a drive before heading home. I grilled hamburgers for dinner and then we watched The Phantom of the Opera. Made a run to the grocery store....I had a woman be kind of rude to me in the store.
The Phantom of the Opera was GREAT! I loved it. I have been playing The Phantom of the Opera CD (Original 1986 London Cast) - with Sarah Brightman over and over today. And Michael is getting me the movie soundtrack as well! It is a movie that I want to watch again soon and over and over again too.
Saturday - We did things around the house. I had to color my hair as I was seeing too much gray. I hate that this year has been the year of gray appearing for me.
Sunday - Mid-week Michael said something about surprising his family. It was his niece's birthday and the family was celebrating on Sunday - so Michael decided since we had the time to get over there have a few hours with them and head back - that we should go. Everyone was very surprised, but happy to see us! And it was nice to see them. We spent 8 hours (4 hours there/4 hours back) in the car and 2 1/2 hours at the party. It was a nice day though. Except my allergies spiked up really high -- I could barely see. I wore sunglasses all day -- even until we got home at 10:30pm. All the lights on the road were even hurting my eyes.
Something I love about days like Sunday is we laughed. We have been doing that a lot actually lately. We made each other laugh and smile. It is those simple moments that I really treasure. Sunday had many moments like that.
Today - I have been cleaning while listening to The Phantom of the Opera CD. It is so good!
