Day of Rest

Wednesday:
My brother came into town last Wednesday night. I picked him up at Love Field around 8pm. My kids went cause they really enjoy their uncle. We came back to the house for a little bit and let them unpack. We went to a local place that had open mic night and I got in around 11:30pm.

Thursday:
I took the day off. We went bowling early, drove by Southfork Ranch(they weren't impressed), drove downtown to check out the Grassy Knoll. My brother doesn't see the value in spending $13 to go into the museum. So by 3pm he was ready to hit a West End bar and start drinking beer. We went to the Stars/Blues game and saw a good game, if you are a Blues fan. Blues won 3-1. My friend Bobby went with us and it was his first NHL game. I think he enjoyed watching the people more than the game.

Friday:
We had a weird day at school with an early release day. So school was 4 hours long. 1 1/2 hrs of that was an assembly. 30 minutes for lunch and another 30 for going to and coming back from specials. That leaves in the best case 2 hours for teaching. Subtract announcements, transition to and from lunch and dismissal we really only had about 1 hour of instruction time. We did not swith classes. The kids really do ask if they still have recess.

Friday night I hosted a poker game and everyone checked out by 11pm. My earliest FOLD every. I had time to blog and facebook after poker.

Saturday:
Pizza for lunch, bowling and then we went for dinner and then to see a band play. Got in after midnight.

Sunday:
Left for airport by 7:40am. No traffic. I went straight to church from there and have spent the rest of the day doing NOTHING.

I don't think I could handle my brother's lifestyle. He's a great guy, but he drinks more beer than water. I think I'm ready to hit the diet trail again after gorging myself this past week.

definitely enjoyed watching the people more than the game, but I definitely enjoyed hanging out with you and your brother. 95% enjoyment watching and observing people, 5% enjoyment watching the game... that's 100%... at least I enjoyed 100% of my time!
