We had a great weekend! It was just the break we needed from how busy we've both been with work and school, and will be for several weeks (months?) to come....
Friday was very low-key since I'd had to make a quick trip to Austin for the day for work and didn't get home til later than usual.
Saturday we had ~nothing~ on our calendars and K is pretty well caught up with his school work, so it became a 'date day' (my newly coined phrase). We usually do 'date night' but I like date day even better since they can last the whole day! Kevin had been wanting to see the movie Contagion so we finally made it to the movie theatre to see it. He was more interested in the movie than I was initially but we both really enjoyed it. I usually see a movie just because I want to, forget what the critics say, K reads reviews and lets those influence whether or not he wants to see the movie, which usually means he chooses better movies than I do. We very seldom go to the.movies anymore, so a movie matinee is quite a treat! The movie did make me want to wash my hands more often and never touch anything in public, it also had the unsexiest scene I think Gwyneth Paltrow has ever appeared in.
After the movie we roamed around Half Price Books and found a set of books that Kevin wanted and one book for me and treated ourselves to a nice dinner out. We took our time at dinner and enjoyed the day.
Today (Sunday), K and his family had an extra game ticket so I got to spend all day with K! We went to the Texans game and what a game it was! They beat the Steelers, woohoo! It was a nerve-wracking game, it seemed like the Texans defense was always on the field. They played a great game and won 17-10. I could not believe how many Steelers fans there were in the stadium, at times it seemed like a sea of 'terrible towels'.. I'm hoarse from the game - had to be LOUD while we were on defense, should be interesting at work tomorrow.
This evening I even went for a bike ride in the neighborhood! It was so hot all summer I cannot remember the last time I rode my bike. Its still pretty warm, but starting to feel a little like fall.....
I hope you all had a great weekend too! I could use another day off.....
We were so busy having fun I haven't even made it to the grocery store! I need to get over there - we do after all need to have something to eat, but I'll just worry about that later in the week!
Finally Looking Like Christmas
