What a busy week it's been. Both kids have been sick with the stomach flu....and I narrowly escaped it myself. Last night I went to bed early with a fever and an ache in my head and my stomach - and today I woke up a new girl. Well, one with bags under her eyes - but feeling spectacular none the less.
Tonight, one of my girlfriends is coming over to hang out and get Chinese. Love, love, love Chinese food - I could eat it just about every night of the week I think. Between Chinese and pizza, oh - and Italian subs, and of course Dunkin Dounts coffee - I could sustain quite nicely. It'll be fun, I haven't seen her in ages it seems. She's a "work friend" who I don't see quite as often as I used to since she changed offices. So while I miss our daily coffee chats and weekly Sephora runs, I really enjoy our visits. She drops her son off with his father down the street from me, so sometimes she'll pop in and hang out for a while.
I've been catching up on Smallville's 5th season over the past week. I'm up to the big episode from last season (episode 12) that I tried really hard to avoid hearing about - but of course the radio stations spoiled it by talking about it. So I know the jist of it, but not the details. Rumor has it, that it's a tear jerker. I'm sure it will be. One of the things I just love about that show, (aside from Tom Welling of course!) is the family structure that runs through it all. There's something about a father and a grown son who are openly affectionate towards one another that really makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
Speaking of which, lots of great television coming up shortly.... "Rome" is coming back to HBO; "Heroes" will be be on again; American Idol starts up again; "Sopranos" should be back soon, as well as "Big Love". But what I want to know is - when is "Curb your Enthusiasm" coming back?!?!
