My vacation has been going fine. I got over my stomach bug, so I spent much of Saturday with my mom. My parents took me to lunch at Chili's, and then Mom took me to Coldstone Creamery later while Dad took a nap. We even ran to a department store and found a cute jean skirt for me at a great price.
Today I spent time with my sister. We went to a ceramics studio and painted pottery for a couple hours. I wasn't very confident with the colors I chose for my piece until it was almost finished. When it was completed, I loved it. It's going to be even cooler once it's been fired. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
After pottery we went to a nearby Mexican restaurant for lunch. We were going to try a dessert called a banana chimichanga, but the waitress said it was huge even if we split it. They wrap a banana in a tortilla, fry it, and put ice cream and whipped cream all over it. Doesn't that sound fabulous? Kathy wasn't up to it, so I ordered a small slice of cake to share with her instead.
After I left her, I went over to visit a friend I don't get to see very often. I spent the rest of the afternoon catching up with her.
Rich and I are now planning an overnight getaway for Thursday and Friday. We've made the reservations and everything. My parents are going to babysit Dixie while we're gone. I think they can handle it. Hopefully, Dixie can too.
And that's how things are shaping up...
