Dinner With Friends and Family

Tonight we had Marissa's mom and step dad for dinner.

I made baked Ziti and salad and garlic bread. It was good. The table looked nice and the house was super clean. We even uncovered the furniture in the family room which we usually keep covered with sheets and blankets because of the cat hair. I hardly recognized it!

They brought us a bottle of Merlot to go with dinner. This is how much we drink: we did not even have a corkscrew to open the bottle with. We had to use a screwdriver and pry the cork out! It was pretty embarrassing but we did manage to get a laugh out of it. And the wine was pretty good. I'm not much of a wine drinker but it definitely relaxed me enough. Carmen and I killed the whole bottle between the two of us!

All and all it was a very enjoyable evening and my house is clean so I don't have to clean it tomorrow.

My dad is still not feeling well. He was running a slight fever and my brother considered taking him to the hospital but figured he would wait and see how he is in the morning. He could just have the flu or something. I talked to him briefly and he sounds terrible, weak and tired. Bummer.

Right now it has started to snow. We're supposed to get 3-7 inches before it stops. Rich is excited to use his snow thrower again! I'm going to bed now.

Your dining room looks lovely. I love your plates and glasses. The tree with the lights is beautiful too. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Goodnight. :D
