My good friend April had a surprise birthday party this past Saturday. Her boyfriend organized a fancy dinner. My friend Christina was my date. I have two amazing friends.
Yesterday I hung out with my Grandpa and my other family members. Last week we celebrated Grandpa's 86th birthday with ice cream cake. He enjoyed his cake and so did I.
Recently, I watched the DVDs Toy Story I, Beauty And The Beast and Sabrina. Beauty And The Beast and Sabrina are worthy classics. Lately, my reading pace has slowed. Currently, I'm reading Until I Say Goodbye by Susan Spencer-Wendel about a woman determined to fill her life with joy while facing an uncertain future living with ALS.
