MMMM + On the mend

Let’s see, my weekend felt like it actually lasted a pretty long time, which is always nice to wake up to on Monday morning.  On Friday, Ash and I went to B J’s BrewHouse and it was actually pretty good.  I had a cheeseburger with bacon and tried one of their handcrafted beers.  He had their lunch chicken alfredo which came with a bowl of soup.  I would say we’ll go back, which is nice because it is close to the house.  Afterwards, we went to the closer movie theater and saw Jack Ryan:  Shadow Recruit, which was actually pretty good and not what you would think from the preview. Had enough time to go home and play some Hearthstone (a new online game currently in open beta) then got the kids. It had turned cold while we were in the theater so I didn’t feel like doing much of anything that night.

On Saturday, Ell and I shopped for a birthday gift and went to his friend’s roller skating party in the afternoon. We had a pretty good time; haven’t been to a skating rink in a looong time. Actually, I think the last time was my sophomore year of college because my roommate had NEVER been; her mom wouldn’t let her for fear she’d break. She’d also never ridden a bike or thrown a Frisbee!

Anywho, I was super tired Saturday night so I had a cup of coffee, fell asleep for about 30 minutes, and then woke and Ash and I watched Blood Diamond. I had never seen it because I didn’t think I would like it but it was actually really good!

Sunday was laundry and cleaning; my hand and arm feel pretty good. I can’t lift anything too heavy but it’s usable at least. We watched Only the Strong, which may be a little too old for the kids but they like martial arts movies and Capoeria is awesome. Zoom zoom zoom.

I have a bunch of things to do this week at work so thank God I can type pretty well now. Onto this week’s music theme: songs about food. Tune in tomorrow when I talk about sadness, neighbors, and impermanence.


Skip to about 1:13 – Zac Brown!


And cherry pie, though I’m pretty sure they aren’t really talking about food.

  1. Ahh, Warrant, brings back memories of my high school years, and not for the reasons in the video. It was a song out my senior year of high school.
    We are finally not all hovering over the toilet and felling good. The flu sucks.

  2. Haven’t you heard, you’ll most of the fruitcakes in Washington, DC? 🙂 Dancing a little late with ya. It’s just been a crazy week with a lot of crazy weather. Did y’all get any of the snow that hit much of the southeast? We got 6″ and frigid temperatures to boot! I’m ready for spring. Great to see you on the dance floor with the 4M crew! 😉
