It has been quiet around here for several days, and that was sorely needed. On Sunday, our younger daughter, mr. kenju and I went to a local Marriott for the Easter Brunch, which was excellent in variety, taste and presentation. They served roast beef, ham and chicken, four or five chafing dishes of different types of vegetables, rice, potatoes, etc., and salads galore. There was also a table of fresh fruits, cheeses, breads and a multitude of yummy desserts. I managed to eat just enough, but not so much that I was uncomfortable (which I tend to do.)
After dinner, we went to our daughter's house and watched Toy Story 3 on her big TV, which I loved. Mr. kenju couldn't believe he had to watch an animated movie (the horror!) but I think he enjoyed the parts he didn't sleep through. They both made fun of me for tearing up at the end, but I blamed it on being sad about my friend and my cat. Truth be known, I'd have cried at the ending anyway.
Monday was spent running errands, and keeping busy is good for my mind - especially when I am sad. But when I went to the veterinary office to pay the bill, I was met with what I thought was a horrible amount under the circumstances, and mr. kenju ranted until he nearly had a heart attack over it. When my other cat dies, I'll know to bring her home and bury her in the woods instead of agreeing to cremation (which I thought was mandatory.) Lesson learned.
Today I cleaned out my closet and thus I have a whole laundry basket full of clothing to give to Goodwill. I had three sizes of pants and I finally admitted that I will never wear the smallest size again, so it is best to give them to people who can.
Tomorrow starts the rat race again; mr. kenju says he needs new slippers and new boat shoes (we don't own a boat and never will) so off we go. I will be working Thursday through Saturday, so I may not be around much until next week. Have a good one!
