Last Thursday was a very busy day at work. I went through a ton paperwork and *almost* cleared my desk before leaving. This was great as I took all of Friday off for the FCB's Valentine Dinner Dance. I wanted to sleep in since I knew Friday would be a late night.

We arrived at the venue somewhere around 3:30/4:00 pm. [livejournal.com profile] jebra went to work setting up his instruments, the P.A., and the recording gear while I sat at a table and addressed valentine's day cards. I had to stop when Ms. Ginny arrived and needed the table for the seating cards and so forth. I asked where she was seating us this year and moved to that table where I finished my task before partaking of the appetizers. The country club's kitchen did their usual outstanding job so everything was top-notch and beautifully arranged.

Turn-out among our friends was poor this year — only one couple joined us, [livejournal.com profile] mbumby and her husband, [livejournal.com profile] traveller42. Also at our table were James (a member of the FCB who is great about helping out with loading & unloading the truck) and his date; Lauren (a tuba player with the FCB) and her husband; and another couple I didn't know beforehand. I spent a lot of time conversing with the wife but I never did catch her name. Her spouse's name is Richard and he's a lot less talkative than she is. During the dance portion of the evening I talked with my table-mates and worked on the lace scarf I'm knitting.

It was around 2:00 am when we finally arrived back at our house and I was up until 4 AM checking my email and LJ & DW. I slept in again on Saturday and then, once we got up and moving, went grocery shopping before driving down to the Redford for the third/final movie of their Cary Grant festival. The first was "Arsenic and Old Lace, which was shown Friday night while we were at the Dinner Dance. I was annoyed by the timing as that's one of my very favorite movies. The second picture was Saturday's matinee showing of "Charade," which I also like but not so much that I was willing to give up catching up on sleep. We made it to the final film of the series though, "Notorious." It's a Hitchcock, a romantic spy thriller, and quite interesting. (I'd never seen it before.)

We took our time getting home, playing Ingress all the way, so Saturday was another late night. Nevertheless I woke up around 8:00 and decided to get out of bed at get to work on my cat beds and getting stuff off the DVR. I did that in part because I didn't want to get my sleep schedule off any more than it was already was and I thought that would mean I'd be able to fall asleep more easily that night. Annoyingly this did not work -- I was tired all day long but unable to fall asleep once I got into bed.
