Default Monday, Victoria Day

Morning Mates, for those of us "north of the border", we are celebrating Victoria Day (as in Queen Victoria), which in 2012 really just means we have a Monday off in May!
The sun is shining, it is semi-warm out and I have no definite plans for the day except to relax. since I worked at the ship all weekend, I deserve a day off.

Last night we went out to a movie, for the first time in I don't know how long....we picked a good one - The Exotic Marigold Hotel - wonderful little movie, and if you are a fan of or familiar with, top British actors and actresses, it is a real treat. Highly recommended!

Good Morning Mates!

I am finishing my last couple hours of my "Friday" at work, then headed home to start my busy day! No worries... I have a Monster Rehab to keep me going today!

For Mother's Day, my hubby and I gave our mom's a "Good for 1 Dinner in a Movie with us!" offer... I made them on the computer with the logo from the Theater, and some of the movies and showtimes... It was cuter than it sounds.

Today is the chosen day, so the 4 of us are headed to the Cinema Suites to see Dark Shadows! We all wanted to see it, but this theater makes it extra special. The theater consists of about 6-8 rows of 6 comfy recliners! They are seperated by tables with cup holders and a call button for your attendant. Before the movie starts they take your order, the usually bring drinks during the previews, serve dinner during the film, and bring your check towards the end. They also offer popcorn, candy, and soda with refills. It is a neat place, and the Moms haven't been there, so I am hoping they'll like it! Oh, and did I mention they also have a full bar! You can get a drink in the lobby before you go in, and continue with your meal or after if you like. It is 21 and up, so that is also a perk....

I may try to get a nap in before we head out, but the movie is at 2:45, so I can probably make it until 5 or 6 before crashing and getting back on a "day schedule" for my days off.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and a great week!!

Sunny, warm upper 70's for NW Ohio. Not too much happening around here, but it should be. DD#2's wedding is less than three weeks away; there is shopping to be done! Lots of little things to take care of before the big day. DD#2 had an interview at a nearby hospital this morning. I hope this is the job for her!

DH is sleeping and so are the dogs! Such a ruff life those two mutts have! I am again playing catch up in my office.

My gut is extremely sore and sensitive. I am still on the heparin shots AND the warfarin until my INR level hits 2.0. I have very little space to give the shots; my gut is a big, gigantic bruise! Ugh! And, I have a nasty bruise starting on my right inside calf. I can tell it is gonna be a bad one because it already has a lump the size of a nickle on it and the bruise is about egg-size.

RD - enjoy the day off
KD - the theater sounds wonderful - movie, dinner, drinks, pampering and RECLINERS!!!!!
Hope all have a good day.

Good morning mates. Yesterday was the big day for my daughter...high school graduation. There are so many kids and family members that they have it in Little Rock in the arena. I've been there a few times for TSO concerts, so I knew the seats were not comfortable but my brother, who is big and tall, wasn't impressed. Oh well, my baby is is now a high school graduate.

I need to make out a to do list for today. I've got a full house so don't actually know how much I'll get done.

Judy, was the bbq good?

Haimia, I hope you feel better.

KD, have fun at the movies.

Everybody have a good day.
