This morning I woke up very early at about 5:00 a.m. and couldn't sleep any longer. I am not a person that can lay in bed, so I got up and logged in on my computer and read a little.
I decided to go to shabbat services since one of our members children hosted the luncheon in honor of a special celebration. They served a beautiful luncheon, lasagna and fresh fruit and beautiful desserts, which I passed on. The choir sang and so I sat with the members of the choir for lunch.
I came home and found out as I entered our underground parking garage, that the electricity for the area, including our condo complex had be shut off and it was very dark in the parking area and hallways. All we had were the emergency lights. I had to walk up two flights of stairs since the elevator was out, and find my keys to the door in the dark. I was so glad to finally make it to my condo where I had plenty of window light. So I read for most of the afternoon until the electricity was restored. Total hours out about 2 1/2 hours.
Our friends J and D drove to our house and we drove to the Sunset Theatre which is a regional theatre. We have season tickets and the musical production they put on was "Midlife Crisis" which was a great production. The eight actors were professional and well suited to their parts. We really enjoyed it. The other two couples and we four then went to Applebys in Menomonee Falls for dinner. I had the 550 calorie dinner, which I had last week. Shrimp Diablo which again I had to send back to warm up, because it came cold. But once warmed was delicious.
I just called my cousin B in New Mexico to wish him a very happy 80th birthday. He told me his son D is in the hospital with pneumonia and it was touch and go for a while, but now is recovering, but still in ICU and on watch 24/7. How fragile life is.............
tomorrow I am going to the synagogue to polish silverware for our luncheon on February 7, 2010. We have about 5 or 6 women so it shouldn't take us very long.
I am very upset about a fundraiser that I signed up for tomorrow evening. Supposedly it was by reservation only, a limited amount of people for a special showing of the the Dead Sea Scrolls which is on exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum. We were supposed to have during this 2 hour time period, a private tour, a presentation by the Museum President and CEO, lecture by Jewish educators and hors d' oeuvres. In tonites Milwaukee major newspaper there was an article stating that this fundraiser's expectation was 50-100 people and now its up to 500 people. If this is the case, no one will get close to the exhibit and where is everyone going to park? I am deeply disappointed and am considering not attending and consider this a donation. But now I want to attend the exhibit and it will cost me another $25.00 to see the Dead Sea Scrolls. Ugh.........

This morning I went to my WW class. Since I am a lifetime member I only have to weight in 1 time per month. So I took a pass. We talked about Skill 4 which is "what do you do when you emotional eating" Excellent suggestions were given by the class.
I went to current events class at our synagogue and had a lively discussion.
I then went to play bridge. Although I lost my $1.00 and the cards were awful I had a good time with my friends.
Tonite I made mashed potatoes which we haven't had for a very long time. Also a salad and ginger beef stir-fry. I added lots of filling foods, red,yellow and green pepper, celery, scallions, broccoli and made a wonderful sauce. It was delicious and we will finish it off tomorrow.
I am still reading "Under the Dome" by Stephen King and it still isn't scary. So I'll keep reading.

Today was a frustrating day. I got onto the SP site early this morning but by mid morning I couldn't get back into the website. I knew it was a SP thing because I did a sweep of my computer and Yahoo was just fine. I didn't realize how dependent I have become on the friendship and support from my SP friends. I was so happy to get back on site at 5:00 p.m.
I took my shower, took my brisk walk and watched a movie that I had recorded earlier. "Obsessed" with Beonce. It was very suspenseful and very good acting. Surprisingly Beonce was very good. It was similar to "Fatal Attraction"
Tonite I had leftover cheese lasagna and my dh had brats. Still have 4 points to eat tonite so I will have popcorn.
