The Weekend

Howdy! Not much time for bloggin', but I thought I'd do a bit of a weekend recap.  We didn't do a heck of a lot for Valentine's Day on Friday night.  This might have been a fail on our (my) part, but we'd been out for a nice dinner the weekend before for amy's birthday, and I was afraid of the Valentine's Day crowds.  We ordered Homeslice and stayed in.  Good pizza, though!
Saturday we went to Map Jam.  It was a lot of fun.  Sponsored by KUTX, it involved free concerts by local artists, scattered around the East Side at various local businesses and parks that served as venues.  It was cool.  We met up with our friends Mary and Chad.  We saw some shows with them and had a few beers at Gourmands.  We ran into a number of other people, too, from Amy's past job and from the criminal courthouse community.  Beautiful weather, good music, friendly people, and a fun event.

What else?  The rest of the weekend was just sort of a random hodge podge.  We played games with some friends, Kit and Shelly, over at their house.  We had a really good time, and it was nice of them to have us over. We laid low on Sunday a bit.  A bit of cold/allergy issues.  Maybe just too much Map Jam excitement.

Amy and I both had Monday off for President's Day.  Amy did some shopping with my mom, while Dad and I took on the task of installing a storm door.  We managed to get it done, and Amy and I are both happy with the results.  It lets a lot of light into the house, and it has a retractable screen, so we can let the air flow through on nice days.

So that was about it.  Monday evening we just relaxed.  We hung out with Mandy and Candace for a little while over at their house, which was nice.

Hope everyone is doing well!!

The door was a great idea -- light and a breeze are both good things.
