Instead of lounging around in bed reading a good book like I normally would do on a rainy holiday, I did a bit of shopping and then went to my friend’s birthday BBQ. Since the weather was so yucky, I was surprised to see that everyone who responded to the evite showed up. This provided an opportunity to catch up with a few people I hadn’t seen all summer. Now, I’m just completely exhausted from the weekend festivities. Later tonight, a few of us will take my friend to dinner at Jane’s to celebrate her actual birthday. So no rest for me until Wednesday. Goodness! I really need a vacation.
