Random things

It looks like it's going to be a beautiful weekend. Ron's going fishing in the morning.

Monday is Mom's 81st birthday. We will be going over there on Sunday to clean up her yard. With all the rainy weather, no one's been able to clean up her leaves from the fall yet. So, Ron, A, my brother and I will be cleaning up her yard for her birthday. We also bought her new phones. I think the amplifier on her phone she has isn't working. They also light up in case she doesn't hear it. One plugs into the phone jack and one is a portable phone and just needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet. We can put the portable one right where she sits. Sometimes it takes her 7 to 10 rings before she gets to the phone. I think if someone other than us calls they probably hang up thinking no one is home.

Wednesday was my night out with my Dinner Friends. This is a group of women most of whom I met from PTA when Aaron was in elementary school. We started with a few women going out occasionally for lunch when the kids were in school. Then as everyone's kids moved to junior high, and some of the women started working, we changed to going to dinner. There's 10 of us that go out every month and we celebrate someone's birthday. We went to a Japanese Restaurant. Normally, I'm not thrilled with Japanese food but this was pretty good. The guy cooked on the hibachi right in front of us. It was a lot of fun. He took the spatula and lifted the food up and you had to catch the food in your mouth. If you caught it, he squirted saki in your mouth LOL. It was pretty funny.
