day trip to Houston
Today I went to Houston with Jackie & Isabel. We left a little earlier than normal as Isabel was spending the night at Blair's and so we needed to pick her up on our way out of town. I was pretty tired, so I stopped at Starbucks in Hillsboro to get a venti vanilla chai tea...one of my favorites there! We made good time and they dropped me off at Panera Bread while they went on to see Modesto. I took my laptop, a book and knitting with me, so I was all ready for some chill time and knew that I might even sneak a nap in the comfy leather chair. Well, I did my 30minutes of computer work before the internet at Panera kicked me off (they only allow you 30 minutes between the hours of 11.30am - 01:30pm) and then decided I was so tired, I would curl up and sleep in my chair. I did, for 1.5hrs! Can you imagine what they thought of me all curled up there sleeping away like I knew nothing??? Well, it felt REALLY
good wonderful...lovely...heavenly! I then got me some soup & salad, which was yummy. I decided I would knit, but that didn't last very long and I went back to sleep for another 30 minutes till Jackie called me and said they were on their way back. I ordered them some food and then we hit the road after they got there. We made decent time and really didn't have too much traffic inspite of it being a Holiday weekend. I went straight to bed upon arriving home. So far, I have managed to keep away the sickness going around...I don't want it!
