Long weekend

I hope all of my US friends are having a nice Memorial Day weekend. I am actually off for a change. I am not sure when the last time was that both Mike and I were off for a 3-day weekend (not counting any trips we have gone on but just simply off for a holiday weekend) Probably a good 4 years ago I would guess.

Anyway, not much going on here. My dad got released from the hospital yesterday which was much sooner than expected so I am very glad about that. He seems in very good spirits so that's good of course. The end of this week I also decided that I am going over to see my parents in July. I will be gone July 15-25. Don't ask about the flight prices. Flights to Europe in the summer are just pure robbery in my opinion but anyway ... I am glad I am going. :) It will be nice to get away from work for a little while and be able to spend time there. My parents are actually going on a short (5 day) trip to Switzerland and Italy so my dad suggested that I should go with them. Of course I couldn't turn that offer down. :) So I will be enjoying Europe July 15-25 while Mike will have to stay back at work and make sure everything keeps running as usual. I do feel guilty ... well maybe just a little. ;)

Yesterday wasn't all that of an exciting day. We went to Cosi in Darien, CT to have lunch. They have the best paninis/sandwiches and salads. Yum. I had one of the newer light salads, the "Toasted Fennel & Chicken Salad" (with low-fat pomegranate dressing. Tandoori chicken, cucumbers, carrots, green onions & mixed greens with low-fat pomegranate vinaigrette, dusted with fennel seeds) It was really good although I found out that I am not a big fan of fennel seeds. I did love the dressing and the tandoori chicken though. Yum. :)

On our way home we stopped for ice-cream. Cookie dough ... yummm. :) Well, and then we pulled into our driveway at home around 4 p.m. and guess what ? I realized that I had forgotten my bag at Cosi. God, I was so annoyed. I called them and luckily someone had found it. So we had to drive all the way back there to get it. I am not sure if this is worse or equally stupid than the time I forgot a full drawer worth of clothes in the hotel in Hawaii when I lived in CA. (that story ended well too by the way as the people at the hotel mailed me all my stuff back to CA)

Today we are off to the Berkshires in MA. Going to two wineries and the Norman Rockwell museum. Lunch at a brewery, then back along RT 7 where we might stop at some antique shops. Should be a fun day. Let's hope I don't forget anything anywhere. ;)

Mail Update: Since my last update I wrote letters to: Kirsty/UK and Celia/MA. Yesterday wrote a letter to: Jessica/DE. Received letters from/owe replies to: Lexi/DC, Caroline/Scotland, Kimber/Canada, Pamela/Florida, Nadine/Tenerife, Nina/WA, Alex/Spain, Eunice/Malta, Lene/UK, Jetta/Finland, Sarah/Canada, Michelle/Canada and Cheryl/Mauritius.
