Yesterday I went out to lunch at the local hibachi restaurant with DIL, C and one of the grandsons. I had a Groupon, which had unfortunately expired, but was still worth the $20 investment I had made in it. We split the remaining balance three ways and it came out to be $24 apiece. That was a bit more than expected. After thinking about it, I decided I'm going to offer some cash back to them, as this was supposed to be a "thank you" event and it turned out to be a bit of a splurge instead.

That said, the food was great, as was the "show."

Today is free pizza day at Planet Fitness, so I'm going to try to time my arrival accordingly. I still have a tuna patty and apricot chicken, as well as leftovers from yesterday's lunch, to eat up. I will probably freeze the chicken, as I think it will freeze the best.

I went to the library and checked out the first Harry Potter book, so I can catch up with my grandchildren. No, I've never read them -- fantasy is not my thing -- but they are really into HP now, so I'm going to try to keep up. I also checked out three new DVD's: Suffragette, Testament of Youth, and W/E.

I'm really looking forward to the arrival of the SIM card so I can get my new phone going! It's really annoying to have a phone that can only be used in the kitchen!

    I'm with you...I don't care for fantasy. Hope you do enjoy it. A friend and her family are huge HP fans and they often have Harry Potter inspired meals. Maybe that is something you and the grandchildren could do.

    I'm not a fan of high fantasy at all, but enough of Harry Potter is grounded in reality that it is easy to follow.

    I'm also not a fantasy reader but love HP! The story is very captivating! After the first book you should watch the first movie. The books are better but the movies are great as well.

    One of my students was reading HP in her lap under her desk. (her mother brought it from England before it was published here.)I asked her to put it away( of course),and then said if it was that good, could I borrow it when she was done. I was hooked.

    I've never read any of the Harry Potter books, but I have seen all of the movies. Have you seen them? They are charming. The reading might go better if you watch the movies first.

    I saw one, with a friend -- I don't know which one it was. I didn't follow it real well, but I do remember I was very tired and sleepy that day so I probably wouldn't have been very much engaged in any movie.

    I haven't read the books or seen the movies ... but those books were almost constantly checked out the library in NM - we had 5 complete sets.
