Had dinner with my cousins Vicki, Natalie, and Cindy, my Uncle Paul and Aunt Linda, and a few friends of Vicki’s tonight. Vicki is currently in town to run that whole marathon thing that you might have heard about on Sunday, and the family and friends decided to fly out to support her. Of course, nobody is really sure where she will be at what time, and since she’ll be running with about, oh, 45,000 other people, it might be tough to spot her in the actual race, but hey — we are there in spirit!
I went out to join the group for dinner tonight, and what made this particularly nice was that I hadn’t seen Cindy or Natalie at the wedding last month, so this was a nice substitute. We caught up on the latest happenings with them and their own families, and also the bizarre news that Natalie was told her Driod phone would cost $650 to get replaced, despite her having insurance on it. Uhm, yeah. I told her that she received faulty info from the store clerk she had talked to.
Something else of importance I learned tonight is that it’s daylight savings time again. Heh, I had completely forgotten about that….
Well, this just means that I can stay up an hour later! Woo!
Then, tomorrow, I need to catch up with the family to figure out how we’re going to find Vicki in the throng of humanity running down 5th Ave., and afterward I’m off to my touch football playoffs, while they seek out the nearest Packers sports bar. I may join them later, but depends on how sweaty I wind up being. I also think I might try to touch base with them on Monday night, as well; hopefully it works out, as I won’t see Cindy and Natalie again until well into the next year.
But for now, onward to finish my laundry.
