I live!

I’m sitting in The Blend, which is where I came for my birthday post-funeral, drinking my second pumpkin latte in a week! And yes, it is quite lovely. All the drinks I’ve had here are.

This won’t be long, but I just wanted to let you know I’m alive and well, although very sneezy. “A common cold? Gadzooks, forsooth. Ah yes, and Lincoln was jostled by Booth. Don Juan was a budding gallant, and Shakespeare’s plays showed signs of talent.” Yesterday I was miserable and today work was difficult while I was slightly less miserable, so I’m glad these two days are over, and I’m on the mend.

The other night- a week ago actually- we teachers went to the Kennells for the mister’s birthday meal. We got to eat roast and potatoes, which isn’t the kind of cooking we usually do for ourselves. Then we sat around and there was lots of music and laughter and presents and niceness. Tricia and I laughed ourselves silly as the night became older and we got more tired. Stacie doesn’t get our nighttime humor as much, which is just an additional amusement to us.

Tricia and I just went grocery shopping, just to pick up eggs and yogurt on our way to the coffee shop, and spent $50 at Aldi. We are as bad as moms! It is quite fun grocery shopping, I think. I believe I was made to run a house. Hah.

On Saturday I decided to spend the whole day in town, so after a very lazy morning I toddled to Peoria for the day. I bopped around, spending gift cards, stressing about my dying phone battery and car charger, and grocery shopping. I also spent a few hours at Starbucks, since I NEEDED a pumpkin spice latte! The Starbucks was located right by Bradley University, so it was full of college kids, and the streets around it were lined with things like Lebanese and Vietnamese and Cantonese restaurants and an international food store. I must needs go back sometime.

The end. Now you know I’m alive and not dead!
