|New Years Day was good. Very mellow, but good. No fighting, no unhappiness (until bedtime, but that's a given on the last night of vacation with my non-sleeper e. in the house).
We watched the 2 movies we couldn't fit in on New Year's Eve: the Cat From Outer Space and Raiders of the Lost Ark. On the Eve, we saw Pirates II, The Love Bug Rides Again, and Thunderball (Sean Connery James Bond). We didn't really play any games. The girls played Stratego first, and I was set to play winner (j.), but my parents called, and they had set up their new MacBook, and we were fussing with video chat. j. got frustrated that our game was delayed and that our efforts at not seeing each other's pieces was keeping her from playing with her grandparents and cleaned the game up.
I also read around 200 pages of my book group book. I think I have to read until midnight tonight and tomorrow in order to finish the rest. I'm enjoying the book, which helps. It's American Pastoral by Philip Roth. Roth is very talky. His parentheticals are like 4 pages long, instead of a few words. But it's not bad.
Now, it's back to work. HUH?? I have to go to work???
