I spent most of the weekend sleeping. It felt good, though I had many strange dreams. I am feeling almost normal now except for a residual (constant) feeling of fatigue and some sniffling. But fall is now officially here!
Yesterday I went to church, found a friend who just returned from Sudan, and we played hooky. We had lunch at the Cascade Café at the National Gallery of Art and then wandered around the East Building. Then on to Target, thus continuing to violate the Sabbath on so many levels. I know this made us sound like a couple of little old ladies but it was fun and I hadn't been to the East Building (or Target for that matter) in a long while.
Since I was feeling so poorly on Saturday I passed on a baby shower I'd been invited to. Our ward is currently experiencing a baby boom - it seems like there's a baby shower every month. I thought it was curious that while everyone who was invited was from the ward, it wasn't an official ward event, and not everyone in Relief Society was invited. I understand that it would be impossible to fit everyone in; how did I get on the cool list?
