Tonight Nancie and I are going to the Broadway Version of MAMMA MIA'S which I am sure will be better than the movie version because people in plays actually can sing. It is at the Keller Auditorium. We have orchestra tickets:
We are having dinner at the Vertible Quandry befpre the play. Since I bought the tickets, she wanted to pay for the dinner. She chose the place and it is the perfect place:
We already know I am OCD so this morning early I drove down to downtown Portland to scope things out so I don't get lost tonight. Found the perfect parking lot, right between the restaurant and the Keller.
Dinner is at 5, play is at 6:30. The Keller is three blocks from the restaurant.. Looks doable to me. Hope I stay awake the whole time.
Tomorrow is the only day next week that I have no plans. Tuesday is the annual football party. Wednesday and Thursday at Mom's. Friday is picking up work from my friend Mark at his CPA. The CPA with prostate cancer, in another bit of sad news his dad died last week. Saturday the Oregon Ducks start the season against LSU and of course I am setting aside time to watch the game. I've cleaned out my lucky spot so I can stand there the entire games. I usually put on three thousand steps watching the game.
Last week? Sunday was Scrabble with my mom and my brother from Wyoming.. Monday was finishing some things for the football party. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday were at Mom's. Friday was getting the car washed and Saturday getting a haircut. Friday night was also going to Mom's for a little get together. Brother and his wife came over to say goodbye to Mom as it was their last night in town. Susan the caregiver and yours truly was there. It was a fun conversation and unexpectedly the problem child was actually nice to me.
That's my update. Now give me yours. I would love your updates. And don't shy away if it isn't positive. We all go through tough times and at times we all need support. Reality is that life isn't always positive and rosey. When you share tough times you not only get support from us, you may also provide support for others going through tough times too. So D fire away.
