Here is a partial list of what my wife and I did over the weekend:
— Went to the gym.
— Played pickleball (me, although we cut it short yesterday because of the heat).
— Watched TV (mostly me watching sports).
— Reading (mostly my wife).
— Went to Five Guys for dinner. (My wife decided she wanted a burger and milkshake, and I’ll never argue against that.)
— Sat in the air conditioning.
And that was about it.
We’ve had stuff on our plate a lot of weekends for the last couple months. Most all of it was enjoyable, and too many with nothing going on feels like a waste of time, but it was nice to have nothing on our plate for a change.
And now it’s back to work. My wife has a short week, while I’ll be busier than normal because I’m helping cover vacations.
At least the air conditioning in my office — which I believe is set to “20 degrees below outside” as soon as the temperature clears freezing — will have a purpose.
