Quiet Labor Day Weekend

It's been a pretty quiet labor day weekend for the family. Tracy is hard at work at finishing up her undergraduate degree, so if she is awake and not at work she's studying. So the kids and I do our best to stay quiet and out of her way; to varying degrees of success. She would say to ZERO degrees of success; but I'm telling the story, not her. (smile honey) Friday was a late night for everyone because Kristie had an away game in Arlington and didn't get back to school until after midnight. Which meant I had to stay up until then to pick her up. I don't stay up that late very much anymore, now that I'm old dodger with two grandkids. I mean, 39 is the nearing the end of the road right?

Saturday turned out to be quite the long day, and my arms and legs are still suffering. Kristie and I started the day off heading to WillowBend mall for lunch and then Kristie took advantage of a makeover she won from the Bodyshop. After that we did some shopping, she had birthday gift cards to use, and we had to pick-up Courtney from work and ferry her over to the boyfriends house. After that it was back home to spend some time with Tracy and then back out again to Main Event. That's where the soar arms and legs comes into play.

We went there for bowling and games. The bowling took out my arms, that and several games of air hockey. The legs took a beating during a game of laser tag. I hadn't played laser tag in years! We had a blast, well, I did anyway. You may have noticed there is a video posted of Kristie playing various games and bowling. None of me, because I didn't think to had the camera over to her. Oh well, next time.

Sunday was a little quieter, although the Kelly Car Service was still in demand. The day was Tracy's day with Kristie, and they were off to the movies. Some chick flick about a guy who keeps disappearing - traveling through time or something. Guys, can we use that excuse and actually get away with it? Only in a chick flick would a girl go for that excuse. Sunday night Courtney headed back over to spend time with the boyfriend (still need to look into access the CIA's real time satellite cameras) and Kristie was off to a birthday/slumber party. Apparently the agenda was - MORE BOWLING. For me it was a quiet night... but go figure there isn't exactly much on video or in the theaters I want to see.

Today was another quiet day. As the hours tick by and the sun sets on Labor Day 2009, I wish for another quiet day. Alas, I have to wait 4 days. Does anyone other than me find it ironic that on Labor Day we all strive our very best to labor as little as possible? Heck, I'm in management should I even get to celebrate Labor Day? Hmm, I won't tell if you won't!
