Monday, Monday


This is my dog staring at me from behind the coffee table. Her eyes have not left me, and every once in a while I get a growl. She’s ticked.
And rightfully so.
We ran out of dog food, and she usually eats dinner around 5:45, and now, instead of going back out to get her food, I am making her wait until my husband gets home to eat. Only about half an hour to go. I think I can handle the stink-eye that much longer.

For dinner, I made a quick version of this Chicken Fried Rice. I was so hungry, I kept snacking while I was cooking, so once I went to eat, I wasn’t all that hungry.
Here’s a quick picture.


It was so-so. The highlight was this:


I don’t drink much pop, but when I do, this is one of my top choices. I am sensitive to caffeine in my old age, so I can’t really drink caffeine in the afternoon. And I love the taste of this. I can taste the vanilla, which is one of my favorite flavors.

Well, I am really tired from having so much fun this weekend. As I mentioned, my girlfriends and I went to see Madonna this weekend in Cleveland, which is about 3 hours from where we live. So, we stayed in a hotel that was only a block away from the arena. We had a lovely day. We arrived in town around 4:30, had some cocktails in the room while listening to Madonna Pandora, and getting ready to go to the concert. This is always my favorite time when my girlfriends and I get together.
The down time.
There are always good conversations, lots of laughs, and commiserating on our aging bodies.

After a bit we went to the street right by the concert that had a million restaurants and bars, and chose a bar that had a table for us right away. We weren’t really in a hurry because even though the concert was supposed to start at 8:00, we had heard she started really late.
We had a fun time at dinner, and I drank a few Bell’s Two Hearted’s. YUM! We arrived at the concert and instead of an opening band there was a DJ, named Paul Oakenfold. You may know him from the song Starry Eyed Surprise.

He played really fun songs, and unlike some dj’s, he played most of the song so you could sing and dance along. I do not like the new form of dj-ing that mixes songs together. I know that is what the whole allure of them is, but it is NOT for me.

Here are some pictures of us at the concert:

Here is a picture of my bff Amy and me:


Madonna came on stage at 10:40 and performed until 12:40. She was amazing.
And as I mentioned on Saturday night, she made the night by playing ‘Like a Prayer.’

We went back to the room and fell asleep shortly after, as we are all used to going to bed MUCH earlier.
My, how times have changed.

I hope your week is starting out great!!
