Cheryl stayed in town on Monday so we could go to the holiday boutique at Washington Hebrew, where we met my mom and several of her friends and my friends, including my third grade teacher, then we went to look at holiday shiny things at Pier One and World Market around lunch at Bagel City. In the late afternoon, we met Paul at Arclight at the mall to see Thor: Ragnarok again.

We had leftover Chinese food from Saturday for dinner while trying to keep up with this week's Supergirl and catching up on Sunday night's Madam Secretary (I knew the Stevie storyline was going exactly where it's obviously now headed).
