Girls night

Yesterday afternoon after Matt had left with Andrew to go on the camp out, a friend came to pick up Lucy and I to go to the park at the library here on post. We met some other friends there. All of our husbands were either at the camp out or deployed, so we decided to go out to dinner to Quizno's. Then after that we went to DQ. Afterwards we met back at my house to watch a movie. We had the kids back in the kids room with a movie of their own to watch complete with popcorn. My two new friends here decided to play fairy godmother to me and totally cleaned up my kitchen counters. (I've had a bit of a hard week and my counters were not even their normal slightly cluttery but still clean state. They were completely totally cluttery and even a little dirty) They were using my new cleaning stuff that I will post about later, so my kitchen smelled fabulous!! The movie we watched was called The Namesake. I LOVED it. And it was a book before it was a movie. I am excited to read the book because now I have a better visual as I read it. For books that are of a different culture, I always like to have a decent visual so that I can better understand the book. But I'll have to wait to buy it because I have at least ten books that I haven't read yet. And I have a ton of things to blog about, but this week was not conducive to blogging. Maybe tomorrow I'll have time to post about all the things I want to talk about.

Yay for girls night! I'm reading The Namesake right now, it is wonderful! While you're at it, add "Interpreter of Maladies" to your list too (short story collection also by Jhumpa Lahiri).

DQ sounded really good after reading this entry, so the little lady and I went and got blizzards. A little too thick/chunky for my tastes, but still good.
