Not a tired day!

Somehow I got enough sleep last night and I felt good all day and got a lot accomplished! I wish I knew why I slept well so I could recreate the conditions and sleep well on other nights. Not only did I sleep well, but instead of waking up suddenly way too early, wide awake with no chance of falling back asleep, I woke up slowly and drowsily around 9:30. So that was a very nice way to start the day. I made a nice late breakfast for Dan, and then he went off to the RC aircraft field and I stayed home to get things done! I did two more LibriVox recordings and got all four recent ones edited, proofed, tagged, and uploaded AND got Joy’s 43-file collection of English Fairy Tales cataloged, AND did the Wii fitness test for the first time — fitness age = 57, lol. And I practiced baseball for a while too. I stink at Wii baseball.

Dan took me out to dinner at Anita’s, a nice casual Mexican place down on the coast. I had a great thing made of corn tortillas layered with cheese and beans and chicken with sour cream and guacamole. Usually I just have a few sips of Dan’s margarita, but tonight I ordered my own — not fruity, not blended, the way I like it. Except I’ve never drunk an entire restaurant margarita before and I really felt it, bleah. I need a child-size one next time ;-) It was a lovely dinner! I couldn’t finish, as usual, so I brought half of mine home so I can finish it before bed.

And now we’re watching TV while I compute and Dan works on his helicopter — last Thursday’s episode of The Office (Michael is back from Jamaica). Oh how I love that show. And the Soup Awards episode, very entertaining as usual. And a dull episode of South Park. And now a re-run of the Office, “The Convention” (for the third time, heheheh, that show is good over and over and over).

Oh my god, we’ve been watching Survivor: Australia on my laptop in bed at night — it’s great relaxing bedtime TV. Last night was the episode where Michael fell into the fire and was airlifted out. Man. We really liked him, too. How can you not like a man who chases down a wild pig with a knife and stabs it to death to feed his tribe?

Now I’m nice and sleepy and Dan is going to bring me my leftovers and then we’ll go to bed and maybe if I’m very lucky I’ll sleep well again. Cross your fingers.

    I find that 99.9% of the restaurants I go to have way too big portions. I can never finish what I’m eating, unless it’s amazingly good.

    Kara, I can picture it now: “Can I order the margarita on the children’s drink menu?”

    Scott will be so jealous when he hears you went to Anita’s. We pride ourselves on having discovered that restaurant and having helped them get on their feet by eating there as frequently as our miniscule income allowed. They were walking distance, you know, when we lived on Nevada Street. So we ended up there frequently, with little Chris holding court in a high chair. The waiters had such a jolly attitude toward babies and would all come around and kind of “goochy-goochy-goo” in Spanish to him and admire his fat little cheeks.

    Yum, yum, yum! Happy times!
