The routine at the office is exhausting, and I've resigned myself to do my best, but to be prepared for the worst. So, when 4:00 pm came around, I took care of a little business with my boss - and left the office about 30 minutes late.
Although I got home early enough to be at games by 8:00 pm, I ended up taking much more time than expected. Part of the problem was, that like most women, I had no clue about what I'd wear this evening. So, after a quick shower to rinse off the subway grime, I pulled a dress out of the closet and got ready for game night.
Arriving in Yonkers, there were saveral games in progress, but I was able to get into one relatively quickly. And then we played Guillotine - a simple game, and a nice way to pass the time. After this, one of the ladies pulled out a game I like, Tokaido, and we proceeded to play that game as well. Of course, I didn't win any games tonight - but I had fun while losing.

While playing games, I was paying attention to two cell phones. On one, I was having a conversation with YGWM. And on the other, I was paying attention to Andrew Sullivan's live blogging of the GOP convention. This is a bad habit that I'm letting form, and I have to break it soon. (What did we ever do without cell phones?) At least YGWM knows with whom she is spending her birthday....
