Guitar Hero III

I played Guitar Hero III much longer than I should have last night. I am on level 31 out of 42. If I didn't have a list of things that I have to do by specific times, then I would play it tonight. I might still play it, but probably not nearly as long as last night.

I rock!

Gabe and I went to Morton's for dinner on Thursday. I felt like crap, but the food was great. It is not the type of place that I would go every week (too pricey), but every once in a while would be fine. The bread was just ok and so was my appetizer (crab cake). I should probably note that I don't really like seafood. Gabe liked the crab cake and his appetizer (jumbo shrimp). The salads were alright. We both had the filet and it was delicious. We shared the veggies (baked potato and broccoli). For dessert we each had the molten chocolate cake. The best item of the night was by far the steak. So, go for the steak. All of the items at Morton's are a la carte (a baked potato is $8 with steak up to $96) unless there is a special going on. The special will save you about $100 for two people.
Friday I still was not feeling too hot. I went to the library with Aaron and I returned something to Macy's. After that I was worn out and came back home and slept for about four hours until Gabe called and woke me up around 6:00 p.m. The sleep helped me feel a little better. Gabe and I stayed in and watched the back episodes of season seven of Scrubs. Now we will be ready when there are new episodes.
Saturday I was feeling so-so until work. I was completely drained after work and felt about 10 times worse when I left as when I started. So, Saturday night we started watching Grey's Anatomy. We have the first season on DVD.
Today I am feeling a little better. I still tire out pretty easily and I am still congested, but I am slowly getting better. I will be feeling better and then after a day of work I feel like crap again. I have to work tomorrow and Tuesday, but then I have Wednesday off. Hopefully Wednesday will help in my recovery.
On a fun note, we purchased Guitar Hero III. I rock! Well, at least on the easy level. It is a really fun game.

Still Painting

On Saturday, after work, we met Aaron for dinner. Gabe, Laura, Aaron, and I all went to Max & Erma's. Afterwards we headed to Starbuck's. I am now addicted to the Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha. If you like peppermint and you haven't tried it yet, I suggest that you do. We took our Starbuck's back to our house and played Battle of the Sexes...the girls won! Then we played Wii bowling...the girls won again!
Sunday we took Laura to the train station to head back home. Afterwards, Gabe and I ran some errands. We also started painting the second bedroom. It took some convincing, but I finally managed to get Gabe to agree that brown would be an okay color for the room. We were both pretty tired and Gabe is fighting off a cold, so around 9:00 p.m. we stopped painting and watched Ugly Betty and a couple of episodes of Scrubs.
Tonight we finished painting one of the extra bedrooms. Tomorrow we are going to change out a couple of outlets, replace some outlet covers, hang up the curtains, and put the furniture back in place. We almost have one more room finished!

Gabe left for a business trip on Wednesday morning. After working I picked Laura, Gabe's sister, up from the train station. She is going to be staying with us until Sunday. Wednesday night we surfed the net and relaxed. Thursday we spent a lot of time shopping and getting things done. I had to drop my car off at the dealer to get an oxygen sensor changed. They gave me a loaner, so it wasn't too bad. We watched Juno yesterday evening. It was okay, but it was nearly as funny as I expected. We were given a free t-shirt for attending the premiere. I can't really say what I have done today...laundry, picked up my car, etc. Now it is almost time to go to bed...almost. Gabe is putting up the blinds in the bathroom. We received them in the mail yesterday. Gabe and I purchased the "Press Your Luck" DVD game. I used to love watching the show on T.V. Gabe won tonight. I kept getting too many whammies.
