Quickie blog entry, that is. (Get your mind out of the gutter, you!) I think Stomach Bug is gone for good. Yesterday was all about broth and noodles. Today I had beans and rice for lunch and roasted butternut squash soup for dinner. So far, so good. Tomorrow night we plan to go out to dinner with friends to Billy’s Restaurant, which we’ve been wanting to try for awhile. I don’t know if I’ll make it to midnight because the Head Cold is still kicking my butt. I’m hoping that if I rest up a lot tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be good at least for dinner. Going out to dinner is an Event That Cannot Be Missed, especially with good friends on a holiday.
Speaking of the end of the year, if you are part of the American Express Rewards program, you should check for deals that expire tomorrow. We just booked a weekend in Kansas City, MO at the Country Club Plaza Marriott and paid for it all in points. We also purchased some gift cards to restaurants in the area with points. Thanks for weekend vacation, Amex!
I got another knitted Christmas gift off in the mail today, and I’m really happy with the way it turned out. So happy, in fact, that it was hard to part with it. It kept my lap nice and warm while I was knitting. Once I know it’s been received, I’ll post pics. That’s it for now. Off to bed.
