I had today off. Hooray, hooray . . for Veteran's Day! It was a good day . . some time with the boy, lots of time with the girls and an afternoon at the movies with my mom. We took the girls to see 'Dreamer', which was absolutely fantastic! If you have a chance to see it, do. I thought it was a 'kids' movie, but it's great for adults too. Dakota Fanning is amazing and Kurt Russell is really good too. I cried about 4 different times during the run of the movie and my girls were looking at me as if I'd lost my mind. Anna kept trying to console me. :)
My mom treated us to Piccadilly, which is the girls' favorite! And yesterday, I had a great lunch at The Chimes (which is a really good restaurant right next door to the LSU campus, if you're ever in Baton Rouge, give it a try) with my friend Jolie. She's in from NYC and I love to spend time with her. She's a New Orleanean originally and she came down to check out the status of the city. I still haven't been down there but she said most parts are really depressing and she can't imagine how long it'll take to rebuild. She talked about entire city blocks piled up with debris 3 stories high. The air downtown still contains toxins that made her eyes burn. But she said uptown by the Quarter is much better and is somewhat lively. I'm planning on going down the weekend after Thanksgiving when the Audubon Zoo opens again. I'll fill y'all in then on the my adventures. Well, I have to go catch up with you blog buddies . . Peace out.
