So, I've been lax in updating this thing. I'll see if I can post up a few updates today.
Erica's been incredibly busy at
work lately; the had a major problem last weekend with their
Exchange server, which
required basically rebuilding it from scratch and trying to restore the
old data. In the middle of that, she got a call about her grandmother Nonie
(her real name was Iona, but everyone called her "Gram" or "Nonie") having
passed away. So, she worked basically straight through from Friday until
midway through Monday, then we took off Tuesday and Wednesday for the wake
and funeral. Everything was well-organized and respectful, as such things
tend to be in smaller communities; only the weather chose to be disagreeable,
with frozen rain coming down on the ceremony at the cemetary, but it was
followed by a wonderful lunch put on by church volunteers.
Two days later, I'm sick and miserable with a cold. :-P Ah well, I'm mostly
back to 100% at this point, and looking forward to the weekend.
Yesterday, Erica's boss (who she's never met) finally came into town, so we
went out to dinner with him and her office's regional exec. Yay, dinner with
two executives. At least the food
was good. ;-)
Tonight, we're doing dinner with a friend from work and her husband for her
birthday at Meson Sabika, then
tomorrow it's a combination of "National Ravioli Day" (it's a tradition in
Erica's family; every year, around the same time, the whole family and
anyone else they can convince to come over gets together and makes ravioli
from scratch all day, and then consume large quantities of it), and then
Erica's office Christmas party. At least I get to sleep in on Sunday...
