Game Night - and I had my distractions

Tonight, I was late (as usual) for game night - but it didn't matter much.  I was able to get a couple of games in before things started to break up.

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....
