Making something of the weekend

I was seriously stir crazy at various points this weekend. Saturday morning, we got up (a little late ;)) to sunny skies. Diana had to run to her house and do a dentist appointment. I went to Home Depot for an LP gas cylinder swap and some weed-n-feed, then to the grocery store for liquids.

By the time we were both home, I was bored out of my skull. I mean, annoyed even. I suggested we go mini-golf, so that's what we did.

Went to Rinky Dink in Medina, and it sucked. I haven't been there in about two years, but wow has the place gone down hill. The greens are in disrepair and full of dirt, and the surfaces have warped so that they're not at all flat. When the surface negates whatever skill you might have (or think you have), it's not as fun. I was seriously disappointed. But whatever, we got outside for a little while, and that was a good thing.

Next we went to Outback so I could have cheese fries. I wonder what the hell I was thinking, but at the time they were super yummy and I love the way they season stuff there. Naturally I had chicken and not steak.

From there we stopped at Jared for a little more ring shopping, and BBB for a small mirror. We listened to R.E.M. in the car and retired to the breezy interior of the house after dusk. We engaged in more romantic activities, lots of wine and hot tubbing.

Sunday was a little more task oriented, but I wasn't content to sit around at first. That's when I went to see Baby Mama (I liked it!). Diana had a number of goals, including some garden prep, while I wanted to at least get my head around the redesign for private messages in the forum app. We managed to finish out Eli Stone from the DVR as well... what a great show. I hope it makes the cut for a second season.

Overall though, I have to say that I felt accomplished in just living it up. We did a lot of stuff when I could have easily just sat around sleeping and doing nothing. I feel like we've turned the corner to spring and summer, despite the cold wet crap right now.

We considered going to Rinky Dink on Friday. We were there last year and it wasn't great, but it's still a good time.

I keep driving by the putt-putt place in Hinckley right by the metro parks and I want to stop there, but never quite get around to trying it. Perhaps a group putt-putt outing is in order sometime.

I don't think I've been to that one since I was a kid, but it at least appears to be well kept.

Team PointBuzz will be popping CP's new green cherry next week!
