Rain Rain, Go Away!
It feels like it’s been raining for a MONTH, although it’s probably only been 8-9 days.  Looks like it will go on for almost another week. 
Tired of it!  Time to finish!  I am *not* in the mood to pump out my basement, again.  The sump pump holes have been 1/2 to 3/4 filled when I went to make sure things weren’t floating down there.  Good sign so far, though now, I’ll come home to 6 feet of water in the basement or something.  Would be just my karma <sigh>
We’ve been rained out of events already.  Had amazing tickets for the Boston Red Sox v Texas Rangers game Friday night.  Supposedly AWESOME field box seats, right behind the Sox dug out.  Granted, I would have preferred to get tickets to a Yankees game, but as we ended up not going – crowd enjoyment factor a 1-2 out of 10 – it was a good thing.  Silly Sox didn’t call the game until halfway through the fifth.  No rain date though :(  At least I didn’t create a Sox fan :p  I hope I get another chance for the tickets, or the Yankee ones. :)
We ended up having a quick shop, then a quick dinner out.  We’ve never been out for dinner alone – just the two of us – before.  Yes, we’ve gone to dinner, with friends, with family, but never just us.  It was nice.  Very nice.  No, the Smithwicks did *not* influence that.  Though it was nice they did have it on tap.
Saturday, MI:3 for a matinee, which wasn’t bad, followed with pizza.  Greek pizza – YUM!  Fun, and another first, to have gone to the movies :) 
Sunday, out to Yonkers, to see mom and grandma.  Played a weird version of dominoes.  Had been winning (or near) until the third to last hand, and then ended up loosing horribly.  Interesting, nonetheless… 
All and all, a good time, even with the damp and the rain.  I could do it again :)

    We've been lucky, the rain everyone's been getting has only been hitting us in patches….Chicago has been dreary forever as well!
    As for the weekend, sounds like a blast! It's amazing how many things you are getting to do for the 'first' time ;o)
    <smooches> to you!

    Isn't it? Very fun. :)

    Though would be better without the rain!

    And I won the dominoes!

    Well, I was first placed among the aliens.

    It was a fun weekend though. I love going to the movies, so it was nice that we got to go for the first, but hopefully not the last time. Especially as the Swedish Fish were so tasty!

    The rain is absolutely annoying. Spring teased us.. then, "PSYCHE!" and rain.
    Do you seriously mean that while able to go to dinner alone, you've not taken the opportunity? OR to a movie till now? ARE YOU TWO CRAZY!?!? OMG what I wouldn't give for a chance to go ANYWHERE just the two of us.. and I don't mean just because he was in Iraq either. YEEESH! Take advantage! You never know how long that will last. <thwaps to you both>

    Stu: You ended up with a very good score, considering you hadn't played before. Glad you liked the fruity fish :)

    Kelly: HORRIBLE rain. Very Eddie – wanna lick? Psyche! No, we haven't really gone out, alone. It has been very very nice doing things at the house, dinner at the house, movies on the couch, that can be paused at any time… Remember, we don't *NOT* get time alone, so it's not quite the same… it was the first times, but won't be the last…

    You two still need to date. It's not the same as staying home.
    Besides, you really get to know what a man is like when he's getting shitty service at a restaurant. <G>

  7. Lisa_SFF says:

    He he he… I know we will be doing that much more often. It was fun. And I am looking forward to seeing him try to deal with an "unruly" waiter :)

  8. Kell says:

    Or, a waitress like one we had that not only didn't leave the table, but when left with no tip on the tab, said "Uhh, no tip?" I wanted to say, "No kidding."

  9. Lisa_SFF says:

    I remember that story! OMG! I couldn't believe she did that!
