Out of our minds...

Well, out of the house, anyway.

Today was a wonderfully boring day. The Wife took The Boy and her parents out to lunch, to meet my sister-in-law for lunch. She's staying in a nearby town at a friend's house, our house not having multiple guest rooms. They were gone for a long time - enough time for me to vaccuum the upstairs, straighten up the kitchen and a couple of other rooms, and catch a nap. I'm okay with that - I need my alone time, particularly when it's productive alone time.

We had dinner while we watched the end of the chorus competition, and congratulations go to the Masters of Harmony from Anaheim, CA, who edged the Ambassadors of Harmony from St. Charles, MO, by 7 points in a 3000 point scale. Amazing performances, but I like the Ambassadors a lot more than the Masters. No offense meant, I just do.

Then, we went to a neat little bar down the block from the comic book store called "Vienna 60" or something like that. It's a new place, owned by a cool guy named Carmine, and decorated in a 1960's fashion. The wife & I had mojitos, which were really nice. It's the first time the two of us have gone out without The Boy (who was with his grandparents) since, like, um... well, a long time. We played a game called "Fact or Crap," which was fun. I won, in triple overtime.

Then, we come home and find my son sleeping on his grandma... he's such a "ho." He'll sleep with anybody. We'll put him to bed and go to sleep ourselves. The in-laws leave tomorrow, and it's our responsibility to start chemo again.
