So Wow! Today is the first Saturday in who-knows-how-long that I’ve been able to just kind of catch up on some R & R! I went out last night with a bunch of school peeps to celebrate the end of the semester/a friend passing his thesis defense, and just general end-of-semester goodness. It was a late night & I slept in until 9:00 this morning (for the record – that’s like a sleeping in record for me!!!)
When I awoke, I did a little light housework, then Chris & I hit up a local place called Hogie House for some lunch before hitting up Sunflower Farmers Market for groceries. The Hogie place was good. I got the Steak & Onion (with bell peppers, onion, cheese, lettuce, steak & onion). It was DELICIOUS! Chris got the Italian and it looked almost exactly like this
The place was YUM, but a little pricey for a sandwich! With our coupon, my sandwich was free – we both just drank water & didn’t get any sides, and yet for Chris’ one sandwich (a foot long), it cost $12 once tax was factored in. A lot more than Subway’s $5 foot longs, for sure, but the ingredients tasted super fresh, so that’s always good.
Got groceries, came home & took a LONG nap, played with Rocky in the yard for awhile, then went on a little bike ride around the neighborhood to test out my 2nd bike.
I have both a mountain bike and a cruiser. We acquired both really cheaply from friends and although the mountain bike was good to go (and it’s what I’ve been “driving”), the cruiser needed a lot of work to get into driving condition. We got a new chain, new tires & tubes, & Chris took it all apart, painted it, and re-assembled it all.
Today was my first time to actually test it out & although the thing looks cute, I think we’re going to try to sell it on Craigslist. I’m now used to the multiple gears on the mountain bike & it was really hard riding the cruiser – even just on the tiny hills around my area. Felt like my quads were on FIRE & I only went a couple miles! So, hopefully we’ll be able to recover the money we put into it.
After my bike ride I had a few more errands to run (bank, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc.) & now I’m contemplating what to do for dinner ~ maybe rely on the hubbs’ for cooking tonight? Maybe something quick and easy that I picked up from Trader Joe’s the other day? Tonight there’s a UFC fight (Chris is obsessed), so we’ll probably go out to see it, or order it on our TV & have some people over here. Who knows!?
It’s been nice not having to deal with a bunch of school stuff today. I’ll have to play some catch-up tomorrow though!
Hope you’re having a good weekend!
