I get to spend the whole weekend with Merrin this week. No jobs taking us away, no distractions…just the two of us doing who knows what. This is a pretty rare occurance. Usually we have to be planning something big (like a weekend out of town) to get to away from our jobs for a complete weekend. On top of that, the weather is beautiful.
She had suggested that we go to the Home & Garden Show. Sounds decent – I need a hot tub anyway, right?! I was thinking we could combine that with a trip to see the new Turner exhibition at the Kimbell and check out the Fran็ois Boucher thing while we're there.
Time-out! I just reread the last two sentences. You should too (without focusing too much on my overly casual writing style!) What kind of dramatic transformation has my wife achieved in the last 10 years that I can voluntarily combine the concepts of looking at hot tubs & gardens with looking at Impressionist art?
Last night was another great dinner @ Cheesecake Factory. A little Crusted Romano Chicken for myself and -much more importantly- a pretty decent Mojito. I showed off the new facade at the resort to Merrin and she feigned interest rather convincingly. ๐
No exact plans for Sunday. That seems about right. Merrin says there's some hub-bub on TV, but that's what Tivos are for.
Have a great weekend, y'all. Anyone that wants to join up (especially pregnant neighbor couples & those residing in Cowtown), email or messenger me quick this morning. We'll probably roll around noon.
