Bonko the other night was a success, I think. Everyone seemed to have a good time and loved the prizes. So pressure is off for hosting again for at least a year. Small group though. Two people called in sick at the last minute so had to play with some ghosts.
Yesterday I did Meals on Wheels, went to physio and then got home and fell dead asleep on the couch for three hours. Usually I cat nap in the afternoon but never for that long. Ellen came in at 6 with the lights all out and had trouble waking me up. I was extremely sleepy after that New Year's party too when I slept for 30 hours! Could this be a new reaction to drinking wine!?!?!
I got to go to the Head Cheese at the physio clinic because my sciatic nerve is not improving fast enough. I have heard a lot of good things about this woman so I am thankful for the referral. She was very thorough and told me I am extremely out of keel, what ever that means.
Both her and the previous physio agree, I have weakened muscles due to my cesareans and have to start stretching more or I am in for a life time of back pain. I think I will enroll in yoga this year. I have tried it in the past and hated it because I am very inflexible (this also confirmed by the physio) but now it is a matter of my long time health.
This is the time of year that Geoff and I try to cram in all the Oscar contenders. Last weekend we saw Slum Dog Millionaire (extremely excellent!) and The Reader (very good). this weekend we plan on seeing The Reader and maybe another one. I would love to see Happy Go Lucky and I Have Loved You So Long, but both have yet to come to Montreal. They were playing in Toronto last weekend...should have caught them there.
So my favourites in order so far.
Slumdog Millionaire (By a long shot)
