Good grief… it seems like we just rolled over into 2012, and a month has already passed! As a child, I would gripe constantly about how time was dragging by… and my parents would always say, “Just wait until you’re older”. Okay, so I’m older… and I’m not terribly impressed with this “time flying” thing that seems to be happening. 🙁
I do have a snippet of good news, though! My friend, who was in ICU, is actually doing much better… which is definitely an improvement over this time last week, when they didn’t think she’d survive. She’s still in ICU, but she improves a little more each day; the doctors have said she won’t be leaving the hospital for “a while” (though no definition on what that means), but I’m happy she’s actually able to talk to me now. 🙂
The weather in SW Missouri is still reminiscent of something like spring or fall… the days are typically around 50, with the nights being in the 20s or 30s. Granted, we’ve had some days that were cooler (temps in the 30s), but overall… the weather has been quite pleasant! Granted, we’ve had a few days of weird weather… we woke up to a dusting of snow, or went to bed as it was sleeting… but whatever has happened has melted off by morning and we were back to enjoying our great days.
This last weekend Russ took me to see “The Woman in Black”… all I can say is, “WOW!”. I love those psychological thriller type movies, and this had everything needed to completely creep a person out… weird music, crow/blackbird, and water. For those that don’t know me, I have fingernails that most folks refer to as “talons” or “claws”… and those were dug into Russ’s leg/knee during the majority of the movie. If you like scary stuff, go check it out… you won’t be sorry.
After the movie we headed to MY favorite sushi place, which is Haruno. We’ve eaten there for years, and therefore everyone says “hi” when we walk in. Not long after we were seated, the manager (which used to be the waiter we’d request when dining there) carried over a “new” version of their “old” dragon ball… which Russ loves. The bad thing is, the “new” version was 2 pieces, each about the size of a softball, cut in half (the dragon ball is spicy tuna… spicy tuna at Haruno is typically REALLY spicy, so I’m not a big fan of it. And when it’s a softball size hunk of spicy tuna you’re trying to consume, it’s even worse. I pitied Russ for his valiant attempt!). We had already placed our order when the plate was set on the table… so we ended up with a LOT of food to try to consume, on top of the popcorn we had sucked down at the movie.
And Sunday was a mostly quiet day at home. Yay!
Now I find myself trying to figure out what to do for Valentine’s Day… it’s going to be interesting, to say the least. 🙂
Until next week!
