Thanks to a whole bunch of Presidents that I wasn’t around to vote for, I had today off, but as everyone knows, “long weekend” is one of the truest oxymorons there is. Or, untruest I guess, by definition.
Let’s start with the part where I make sense.
Friday was Valentine’s Day, so we went out for a nice dinner and then came home to watch a movie. If you’ve been reading for a while, you know this roughly translates to “added another title to my list of Movies That End with a Scene from the Back of My Eyelids.”
Saturday we went out for breakfast and to do a few errands before the big snowstorm. Which big snowstorm you ask? I have no idea, I’ve lost track. I did end up finding some mats for our bathroom floor, smoothie ingredients, and a bridesmaid dress for my sister’s upcoming wedding.
Sunday we decided to be a little adventurous and head to Twin River Casino. The “adventurous” part has to do with seeing how much secondhand smoke you can breathe in before giving up and going to the local mall instead. It was there that I finally ended my two-year long search for brown boots!
I got a great deal on them, even if I didn’t buy them with winnings from our casino adventure!
From there we drove back up to Boston to check out the Frost Bar. Because it’s not cold enough OUTside.
It is a bit expensive (and a LOT cold), but we knew going into it that it was likely a one-time thing. It was still fun to see all the sculptures and enjoy the experience, even if the glasses were made from ice and I was more than a little concerned my lips would end up stuck to them.
After that full day, we came home and said “well I’m exhausted, let’s discover that our cat needs to be taken to the emergency vet where we will stay until 1am yayyyyy!” Actually, I don’t remember saying that. This little guy was such a trooper though, and he’s feeling much better today.
To enjoy my final day off today, I met my mom for some shopping, lunch, chatting, and gelato. I bet you can’t guess which one was my favorite? Wrong! It’s my mom 🙂
Back to the office tomorrow, unless snowstorm #793,062 can pull through for me. How did you spend your “long” weekend?
