Ours was good, but too short. On Friday, after work, we went to see our friends Mary and Chad. They're expecting a baby this week, so we went to hang out with them and wish them good luck as they forge ahead to scout out the new parent territory. We'll be joining them in a few months, so we're counting on them to warn us of pitfalls as we charge into the whole thing. It was good to see them. We also had fun scouting out the pre-baby house changes that they had made (always fun to see how everyone brings their own personalities to this stuff as they go through it). We're excited to meet their kiddo!
On Saturday we took care of errands and did some shopping (after breakfast tacos). The weather was great this weekend, which was perfect since we wanted to keep the windows open to rid the house of the last remnants of the paint smell. Saturday night we went over for dinner at Shelly and Kit's house. They cooked a kind of Thai chicken dish for us. It was really good! Spicy, but not too spicy. We checked out the electrical work that Kit is doing in their cool, new Tuff Shed (someday maybe we'll put on in our back yard for storage), and we played Mario Party on the GameCube. I'm proud to say that Amy and I were victorious, despite the trickery of our opponents. We had a really fun evening. Very cool of them to have us over.
On Sunday we went and checked out strollers at Buy Buy Baby. Since I'm tall, we had to buy one that had an adjustable handle. For better baby maneuverability.
We slowly hung some stuff back onto out walls on Sunday and did a few other chores.
I went over to Reed's house on Sunday night to play some music with him. It was good to see Reed and his familia, and it felt good to be playing music. Amy made stuffed peppers on Sunday. I had requested them, and, as usual, they were delicioso! You can see the goodness all coming together in the picture below. Garlic, onions, peppers, cheese... You can't see the sausage because I think Amy was cooking it in a pan when I snapped this photo.

It all went by so quickly...
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
I like my job, but I good do with a little more weekend time these days!
