It seems as if I can't make the switch of my volunteer day from Thursday to Wednesday. And this might end up being best for me, as it allows me to go directly from the GLBT Center to the Game Night venue, with a possible stop off for dinner.

Getting up this morning wasn't easy. The bed kept calling my name, and I wanted to sleep as much as possible. So when 1 pm came around, I was already up but hardly moving. By the time I made it for my volunteer stint, it was about 3:45, and I ended up waiting until 4:15 or so before being assigned a task. (The volunteer coordinator was busy with a new person, and I was more than glad to wait around until he was free.) And this task was simple, but time consuming - adding a new event to the calendars, the web page, and to the blog. There is no one-stop way of entering an event and having it reflected in all places, so I got the job of reflecting the event everywhere that was needed.
When I was done there, I went to game night (with a stop for dinner) and was there "early" for a change. It was fun to get in on the first game of the night. While playing that game, L, a woman whose birthday party I'm going to on Saturday, texted me to let me know that one of our regulars was not invited to the party. So I knew to keep my mouth shut. (She'll clue me on what happened when I see her next.) And I won this game of Azul while L and I were chatting about things in general. I switched tables and played another couple of games before leaving.
On the way home, I chatted with GFJ. Seems like out planned visit for next week got screwed up. She has to go to work on both Monday and Wednesday, and now has to run out to Connecticut to run a few errands with her mother. This means that I will likely end up going to GFJ's house on Sunday and come back on Monday morning. One catch in doing this - I have to get back early enough to switch from Mario to Marian, so I can go to the monthly Arts Westchester meeting. (If I get out very early, I can have breakfast at the diner where DD works. I haven't heard from her in a while, and it would be nice to say hello for a second or two.)

Tomorrow will likely have me driving to New Jersey to see the Cat Lady for an early bird dinner. Hopefully, nothing will get in the way of this.
