When Toby saw me sitting in my recliner, still wearing my robe, drinking coffee and playing on my laptop, he said, "I've created a monster." I worked all morning on my laptop. I now have my addresses in it and all my favorites where I can easily access them. The recliner is much more comfy than the desk. I like this whole laptop thing, but I may need a mouse so as to save the pads on my fingertips.
We have been doing other small things to get ready for our trip to Scotland - like laundry and Wal-Mart. Jesse and Mom have made their flight reservations to join us for a few days. That should be fun.
The kids came over last night with the Grand Babies. We cooked steaks on the grill, along with baked potatoes and black-eyed peas. I burnt my tongue tasting the peas - so much for good-luck. Jesse baked a chocolate chess pie - yummy. We needed to eat the steaks so that they would not get freezer-burn - Jesse certainly could not eat them by herself. It was a good excuse to have the kids over.
Speaking of steaks, Jesse ate at Texas Red's Steakhouse one night while on her ski trip. She said she was going to have a steak, but ended up ordering a "steakburger" (which is always excellent). When asked why she changed her mind, she said she never realized how expensive steaks were since her parents always paid for them. The girl is tight with her money - except for travel expenses and new cell phone and maybe clothes.
I still have lots to do before Sunday. Here is a link to a video that is quite funny. One of the young men in Toby's office apparently made this.
