Our date night last Tuesday was perfect except for my back issues, which I fixed with a strategically placed wine list (the chairs had a hole cutout in the back which killed me) and 4 Goose martinis.
We had time to catch up and relax for a while before my husband had to head back to town to train the girl who was closing on the end of night paperwork.
The rest of the week was spent trying to rest my back although by Thursday, I was able to get the kitchen cleaned and floors mopped, laundry caught up and some lists made.
Friday I took the little one out to a nice dinner at a steakhouse. I wanted to catch up with him a bit although we spent a good deal of time looking at the pictures of the instrument panel of the plane he flies. I could probably fly a small aircraft myself now (but I won't)
Saturday after work, I went to a memorial dinner for one of our customers, who passed away in July. His family lives in the next state but he frequented a few local restaurants, including ours, so they threw a dinner party for him including Jack Daniels shots (his favorite). Only 2 of us from my place showed up but it was an amazing time.
Then I had to race across town to meet a friend for her birthday dinner (which I missed) and drinks (which I missed the first half of) and everyone was pretty well lit by the time I got there.
I ended the evening with a couple girls from work and hit the bed way too late for a work night.
Yesterday was the looooong day I mentioned and today I slept in, washed a couple loads of laundry, ran and unloaded the dishwasher, cut the dogs' toenails, cleaned and mopped the kitchen, made some phone calls and did the much needed grocery shopping for the week.
Today is Mel's birthday.
Happy Birthday Mel!! Hope it's the best one ever!!!!
