I’d been waiting for Friday FOREVER. A day off, finally. SXSW, finally.
Got up, got dressed to run, grabbed my gym bag, and drove off to the train station. Got to the station and realized I had no sunglasses. Not to run in, not to be outside in all day at SXSW. I simply cannot tolerate that much sun without sunglasses. My eyes would go berserk.
Run home, search for shades. There went the 2nd to last train. I keep multiple shades in the car, but Dan took my car. By time I’d found a pair to wear (the 2nd pair from 3M goody bag), the last train had left 😦 I could have driven the truck downtown, but parking during SXSW is near impossible, and in Dan’s truck, I didn’t have the desire or patience.
Drove home and was a bum all day long. Cleaned some house, got some projects done. Took a much needed nap, caught up on DVR. I guess that would be ok with some people for a day off, but it put me in a crummy mood. I actually almost just got dressed and went to work.
Dan came home, we chilled a while, then decided to drive back up to Georgetown to eat dinner at Fish City Grill. It was alright. Since it was Lenten Friday, I couldn’t eat meat, which was fine, because I really wanted some tuna or shrimp. No tuna, so I opted for peel and eat shrimp (which I got addicted to in Florida over the summer). I am glad there was no photographic evidence, because I pretty much inhaled them (it was after 8 when we were eating, which is really late to me). They were alright, not the best i’d ever had. Dan got raw oysters, which I think are disgusting, he also had grilled shrimp and their cream of jalapeno soup. I tasted the soup and it was good, but one of those things that is definitely something to be enjoyed in moderation!
We then went to Dan’s office and I “helped” him do some spring cleaning and moving offices. He said it was helpful and he feels good about what we got accomplished. I had to practically force him to go, because he didn’t want to, but he was grateful when it was done. I felt like I was getting in the way, but I was able to do some filing and cleaning. We got home after 11. 11 is WAY past my pre-long run bedtime, but it was worth it to have an evening with Dan that didn’t involve tv.
