I drove there with the top down since it was a nice day, which always makes the trip better. I left the party as it was winding down at 9:00, and arrived at Spouse's mother's house at 9:30. We talked until almost 11:00 when she decided to go to bed. I watched TV until 11:30.
I got up at 7:30 and had coffee and talked with Spouse's mom again until almost 9:30. (She always has lots of mildly interesting tidbits to share about her friends, senior activities, etc. Most of them she's already told me.) I left at 9:30 with the top down again and got home at noon. I got a little sunburned on my left arm, but I don't mind.
I ate lunch, took a shower, read my email, and ran a few errands which included a finding a little gift for our friend Ana, who's graduating from grad school. Sat evening we're going to a party for her.
Spouse emailed me from his temporary office in another town to tell me his regular office building, which was flooded on Monday, will not be ready for 2 weeks. Apparently they are not only cleaning up from the flood water, but there is a nasty smell that must be found and eradicated.
A friend sent me this and I thought it was funny:
Have you seen the new five dollar bill the Treasury is planning to release this summer, just in time for vacation traffic?
