Catching up

Not a lot has been happening around here but I haven't been in the mood to post. Why is it that we either have no invitations or multiple invites on a single evening?

Friday night we went to Okoboji Grill with my parents for my mom's birthday. We and the Steins gave her a Jim Shore ....sculpture? figurine? Anyway, it's the Mayflower one for Thanksgiving. We had a mix up about where we were meeting so it ended up being kind of a long affair. The food was ok (not very hot) and the service was very very slow. Of course, when only half our party was there the server was very attentive.

Saturday we were invited to a surprise birthday party. However, we had already committed to going to the CAAP - Community AIDS Assistance Program - benefit. We try to go every year. CAAP provides AIDS education and other programs as well as supports Hospice. The majority of the money goes to individual assistance for persons living with HIV and AIDS to help with medication, food, housing, and quality of life needs. Brian has been asked to apply to be a board member and he's trying to get me to apply as well.

Table deocrations - jelly bracelets, 80's movies, ring pops, pop rocks etc

The theme was "Rockin' into the 80's" so dress accordingly. Lots of people copped out with concert t-shirts. We dressed up. It was fun. I was disappointed that it didn't seem very 80's over all. The girls mostly did their regular acts. The goal was to raise $15,000. The last I heard we were at just under 14k.

Notice the tight roll jeans and the fingerless lace gloves!

Sunday was spent lounging around. Small chores were done in between naps. I really can't stay out late anymore. Add some gin and tonic to that and I was pretty much a slug all day.

Sometimes a whole weekend can be spent having small chores between naps... I'm all for it!
