Amy and I are laying in bed, watching the closing scroll across the screen. A big dawg is laying at Amy’s feet, and Caleb is going through the drawers of our nightstand. It’s already a lazy Saturday, just the kind that I like.
Last night Amy and Caleb and I had dinner with a co-worker and his wife. We went to TGI Fridays and the service was absolutely horrible. We checked in at 6:45 and were told there was a 20 minute wait. We weren’t seated until 7:30 or so. We almost immediately orderd appetizers that didn’t arrive until after 8. At 8 I called for a manager, and just before he arrived our appetizers did as well. HE saied that he’d comp our appetizers and while we were still trying to eat our appetizers the entrees were brought to the table, and there was no room for them. Everyone loved their food, it was really good, except for my fries that seemed like they were the end of the batch, short crisp fries. I love the Jack Daniels sauce. We ordered a couple of slices of cheesecake to go, and after giving the server our credit card it took at least 15 minutes before he brought it back for us to sign. I was so frustrated. Caleb rode in Paulie’s Envoy on the way home…. Paulie told us that he took a wrong turn and Caleb told him. He had an excellent time.
After we got Caleb to bed I taught them how to play Carcassonne. Carcassone is the board game I got for Christmas. Amy and I play it, by ourselves, but playing it with four people makes it a completelyt different game. Much more strategy involved. Both Paulie and Val got the game pretty much right away, except for a few rules that I always forget until they apply during the game. Val won the first game by at least 20 points. We played a second game with the River expansion. I really like to play the River, but we should’ve played with it first because by about the halfway point, we were all too tired to really make any thoughtful decisions. THat game Paulie won, followed by Val, with Amy and I at the back.
I got Carcassonne because they say it’s a good intro to German Style board games, and both Paul and Val really enjoyed the game and couldn’t wait to try out some of the other expansions.
Today we only have a birthday party for Abigail, but nothing else. There is a little bit around the house that I want to do, but I’ll probably not get to it.
