Well, we're back home after a visit to DH's hometown. He wanted to show me the house he grew up in (I have no idea how his parents raised 7 boys in a house that small!), the hospital he was born in, the high school he went to (1700 in his graduating class, graduation had to be done over 3 days), and where his parents are buried.
We spent the weekend there in a motel, so we got to use the hot tub and swimming pool (and I got to wear my new swimsuit, this one in grape). Swimming was fun, but it's been so long since I've been that I have sore muscles today along my rib cage (it's worth it, and I called the motel here in town to see what they charge for non-guests to use the pool, I want to keep on swimming year-round and I can do that at their pool).
It had been 14 years since Mike had been to his hometown, and he kept talking about how much things had changed in that time. The places he worked aren't there anymore, stores have changed or moved, and the drive-in theater where he made out with various girlfriends isn't there anymore either.
We went out to dinner at Timber Lodge Steakhouse. Good steaks, and the service was pretty good too. We also ate out at Denny's, who also have awesome burgers and great service (I hadn't eaten at a Denny's since I left Washington state 22 years ago, so finding Denny's here was a surprise).
Got lost coming home, well sorta kinda maybe lost........lol.......one of the reasons I would never live in the Twin Cities. With all the construction always going on there, you never know how to get from point A to point B without having to traverse at least one detour, maybe more. But we didn't go too far out of our way, and made it home just fine. Boy, were the cats ever glad to see us, too. We left Friday morning and got home Sunday around 1 pm. DH sat down in his chair and had both of them in his lap (well, one in his lap and one on the arm of the chair, no room in his lap for both at the same time).
All in all, it was an enjoyable weekend away from home, and only took me 6 hours to catch up with everything I missed on my blog subscriptions (not to mention all the email I had to sort through/read). It's kinda nice to take a break from the computer once in a while (so I must not be addicted as I thought I was, since I didn't miss it while I was gone). I noticed there was a computer in the motel lobby, and briefly thought about checking email, and then went "Nah, I can do that at home, I want to swim and soak in the hot tub."
