I slept nearly all day today. Colin loved it, because he was stretched out on me for hours. I was beat down after a crazy week, my first full work-week since June (not counting auction week and the move and all those other times, hehe). Yesterday was CRAZY, two visits to City Hall, one to prep for next Wednesday, one to meet with the Commissioner. We also had a great meeting about our new Youth Silent Film Festival, after I got much of the script for Wednesday done. Then we chose the winner of our official rose contest in the afternoon. We'll announce the name next week. Charlie and I got home after 7:00pm, and I was STARVING. I hadn't had a bite all day.

So, no treadmill, no other exercise. I'll count that Jeff and I walked the few blocks to and from City Hall, I guess. (Tonite I'll have to do 45 mins to an hour.)

I've only gotten three work calls and/or emails today, so that's not bad for the first work weekend of 2010.

Sue, Charlie and I drove to Hood River this afternoon, and we're at Starbucks using WiFi. After this we're heading to dinner.

So, as I was watching mindless TV last night and surfing around cable, I saw that Public Enemies is now On Demand for $4.99. So, even though I own the dvd, I decided to buy it and see if by chance it was full screen. AND IT WAS! I could actually see their expressions! So I'm going to record it from On Demand so I can have a version I can actually enjoy. As I mentioned a while back, the ridiculous wide screen of some of these movies just doesn't work for me. I'm happy to lose the 'perspective' of the scene in order to see the damn actors.

I used my Brandon Walsh icon, partly because Kyra posted and mentioned her nephew Brandon. Also because I had turned on BH90210 while Colin and I were napping. (Weekend eps on the Soap Opera channel are currently on the Kelly/Colin arc where she ends up on cocaine, one of my lurid favorites. Donna is trying out for the Rose Court in Pasadena. You know I gotta love that one!)

This is great to be together and all doing the laptops. How fun and maybe I will learn to do all of this sometime. Thank you for the laptop and I am glad that Charlie kept nagging to have me have it.

I am glad we took the ride up here and dinner will be fun. Sue

I'm so EXCITED that you have your Starbucks WiFi account now!!! How COOL is that???

It's just a blast to be able to all use our laptops together. I can't wait for you to take your computer home. Imagine lying on your bed and using it -- cool, right?

Today was fun!

(hugs)

Thanks for driving us to Hood River! It was fun to talk and look at scenery, and even though it was freezing cold in Starbucks, it was fun to blog together.

I gorged myself at dinner, but I didn't end up getting sick! Yay! I can still eat at Taco House, as long as it's the one on Powell.

I think that PE full screen is quite the 'gift' -- don't you? And a steal at $4.99. Seriously!

I guess you're lucky it wasn't MORE calls, considering. Clearly 2010 is going to be another busy festival year!

Fun going with Sue to Starbucks and using WiFi as a trio. Go, US! And it was cool to go for Mexican after all this time...

Donna is trying out for the Rose Court in Pasadena. You know I gotta love that one!

No kidding!!! (heh)

I managed to get my 5 bucks worth by watching it while I was napping last night. I slept during most of it, to tell the truth, and was kinda confused at one point when I woke up. Still. It makes a world of difference to have it full screen!

Nice weekend, all in all. Just not long enough.

Yeah, technology fascinates me. It's really the center of our lives in so many ways. I have to admit, I'm a little obsessed.

I'm glad I checked out the movie. I just don't get why they'd go to all that trouble for cable TV, but not put the full screen version on a dvd. Weird.

You sound like you're doing fantastic. I told Debbie you've been using the treadmill and that we need to do the same. We always agree with each other on it, but have yet to begin.

Cats adore it when their loved ones sleep a lot, lol. And I always enjoy a nap more when my babies are close to me. I'm crazy over the feline sweeties.

I'm starting to do better. I didn't manage to work out Friday or Saturday. I was just too damn tired. This week I'm going to the doctor and get my thyroid tested. I've been talking about it for months, but procrastinating, as usual.

Tonight was great, though. I'm starting to feel my strength coming back when it comes to exercise. I can't wait!

The hardest part is just getting up on the damn treadmill. When I started last month, I didn't even change my clothes, just my shoes. I gave myself *no* expectations, just started walking. And I did that for a week or two. Then I gradually started to build up.
