We went to Gordon's 20th class reunion last night, and had a wonderful time. Every woman we talked with said that Gordon was always the sweetest guy. I already knew that, but it was nice to hear that they all thought he was a sweetie then, too. It was great to meet some old friends of his and for him to reconnect with several people, too.
The worst thing about the evening was the food. Roast beef, which would be great for most Os, but gives me a migraine, and then pasta with either marinara or alfredo sauce. And cheesecake for dessert. Ugh. I did eat some salad and pasta and cheesecake, and THEN someone said that there was chicken on the other side of the room, and Gordon told me to go eat some since I hadn't had any protein ALL DAY. I was full at that point, but knew he was right, too, so I went and got a few ounces of chicken and ate it. And of course, this morning I woke up feeling like the Michelin man - lots of bloating and puffiness from the dairy and wheat last night! Yuck!
Today I went shopping with Gordon's mother (my future mother-in-law!). It was the first time we'd gotten together without Gordon around, and we had a really good time. I wanted to look for suits for work, and we went to Loehman's and looked around for a while. I didn't find anything that I both loved AND that fit me correctly, but it was good to see what they had and spend some time with her. Then we went to lunch together, and chatted and talked about some wedding stuff and got to know each other a little better. I really like her, and she seems to really like me, so that helps!
Gordon's working sound on a show today, so I'm left to my own devices for the rest of the day. I plan to get to bed early so I'm well-rested for the workweek. I need to run a couple errands still, and then do laundry and get a few other things done around the house today. Gordon is working on this show for the next two weeks, and I'm in two classes this month, so we won't get to spend much time together for the next few weeks. In fact, we had to sit down with a calendar the other day to figure out when we'll next have an evening together! Guess this is what happens when two busy people combine their lives!
