Well, I am very, very tired today, and the joints on my left side are killing me, but it was worth it.
I went out to the movies last night. Mr Wonderful and I saw the movie-theatre version of the 25th Anniversary performance of The Phantom of the Opera. It was absolutely amazing, and worth a few aches and pains and a bit of fatigue today. (OK, as well as the joints, I also have incredibly sore, swollen legs, but fluid tablets will help with that.)
We didn't leave the movie theatre until after 11pm - which for me is incredibly late - and it was closer to midnight before we were home. I can remember being 19 or 20 and staying up to midnight dancing and being able to get up without any trouble the next day. Now, staying up until midnight, even if I had an extra nap during the day, just leaves me exhausted!
To add to the great night, we also went out for dinner. No, not a four-star restaurant, but a gourmet hamburger place. We went to Grill'd Healthy Burgers. I have to mention this place, because they have the most fantastic gluten-free bread.
Most of the time, if I go to a fast food place, I end up having the insides of a burger, without the bread. Grill'd not only has gluten free bread - but it's gluten-free bread that tastes good. (There's a lot of gluten-free bread that tastes awful out there.) I had a Moroccan lamb burger, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
So I had a great night. The food was good, the company perfect, and the entertainment exceptional. And if I had to spend today suffering for that, it was a small price to pay! (I'm definitely having an early night tonight.)
