In spite of the sunshine, I was happy to leave work and head to Eric’s parents’ house for Easter dinner. Eric, who specializes in cooking/roasting/grilling meat, had cooked a huge ham for dinner. As is always the case at a Wells family holiday meal, there was a TON of food. It was nice to hang out and chat for the evening and enjoy the weather. Eric is on his spring break this week, so I’m anticipating a spike in his video gaming hours (mercifully, happening mostly when I’m at work). This afternoon he played a few games of basketball with some of his fellow students and came limping home, tired but triumphant. His team won two of three games.
Today is the only day I have off until this weekend, so instead of running around doing chores like I usually do I went to a movie with a friend. We saw “Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day,” which we both really liked. Unfortunately this film is only being released in a limited number of theaters, so most of you who aren’t in L.A. probably aren’t near a theatre where it’s showing. But if you are, check it out! After the movie I treated myself to a leisurely trip to the bookstore and came out with a couple of new books I’m looking forward to reading. Most of the time I avoid the bookstore in favor of the library—I learned long ago that my reading habit far exceeds the capacity of my bookshelves, so the library is a great way to save coin and space—but today I felt like indulging the habit.
As is always the case with days off, today went much too quickly. Ah, well—there’s always this weekend!
