A good week...

It started on Saturday with a visit to my dear friend swandog's. It was lovely to see her again.

Moreover, for the first time in a very long time, I borrowed the folks' car. I was fairly impressed with how well I drove on the way there. It requires me to get on the E6, and that's a highway. But I did it.

Pleased with myself, I was the first one to arrive. But hot on my heels the rest arrived, and soon we were a lovely group.

It was once more established that the best way to get my attention when I'm looking at your books is to shout "Cookie!" Hence, that's my new nickname. And to those of you who play World of Warcraft...no, I'm not a Murloc. *grins* Not even a Snow Murloc.

We ended up going out for pizza, which was fairly okay. *grins*

Upon arriving back at the apartment, we all sat down to watch Princess Bride. I love that movie. It didn't matter too much that it didn't have subtitles, I still watched and enjoyed.

A while later, we played a couple rounds of a game called Munchkin. Pretty fun stuff. First time around, I won, but that was just beginner's luck. Second round took forever. And I was squarely beaten.

Somehow, in between all the chatting, gaming and watching of stuff, it was past midnight, and I ended up driving home.

I got quite lost, and took the long way home, but I did it. So I was tired, wet and proud when I arrived home. (It was raining something fierce.)

Sunday, which was spent with my dear ahofschu, was crowned by picking mom up. She'd gotten home from her vacation, and was quite glad to be home.

Monday and Tuesday were both spent with my dearly beloved as well, all in all very good.

Today, I surprised my mom and made her co-worker envious by making dinner. *laughs* He was so envious when he found out mom was coming home to a finished dinner. Now, it was nothing fancy, but I really have to repeat that feat sometime. Goddess knows, if I leave it to dad all the time, there'll be a lot of hot dog dinners. He's a lovely cook, he just ends up too exhausted to cook sometimes.

So it's been a good time so far, and I hope the week will continue to be this good.

Thanks! I should have posted all this earlier, but I decided to put it all in in one big post.

As for the driving thing, I hate it usually, so that was a huge step forward for me.

I hate driving, too, and I get lost all the time.

Congrats for handling that so well!

I was freaking a bit, but somehow, I just kept going, and ended up somewhere I kinda recognized. And from there, I was able to work my way where I needed to be.

Getting lost at 1 AM in a thunderstorm is icky beyond belief. *laughs*

Eeeeep. I've gotten lost in thunderstorms before, but not at 1 a.m. You've got me beat! ;)

It's not a competition, though. Some days I think I have more courage than sense. *laughs*

*grins* He has good taste in movies. But then, he has good taste in women too.

*hugs* As I hope for more good things for you.
