Fun Times

We had so much fun last night!  The Chanhassen Dinner Theater is a lot of fun but is no cheap date.  This being our first time, we were schooled.  Our tickets were free and included dinner and the show.  However, if you wanted any other drink besides water, you were charged.  If you wanted something other than the 4 meals listed for free, you were charged.  If you wanted an appetizer or dessert, you were charged.  Our free night out ended up being $40 plus tip!  Oh well, it was still fun (and we have the bottomless cups to prove it!).  The show was a one man show called The Wonder Bread Years.  It was about growing up in simpler times and really played on the memories and emotions of the boomers and X-ers in the crowd.  Bob thought it funny but mentioned that he couldn’t really relate because he didn’t grow up in a 2 parent household.  Looking back, I can see where that would be important.  Still, it was humorous and there were parts where I was laughing so hard I was crying.  It felt so good.  Dinner was OK but I think when we go back next month to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, I will order either the special (which you pay extra for) or the chicken.

The best part of last night was spending time with our friends Scott and Laurie.  We just have so much fun hanging out with them.  Every time we do, we say we should do it more often and yet we don’t.  Still, I’m going to make more of a concerted effort to do stuff with Laurie. She is 4 years older than I am but has an almost empty nest and is looking for things to do with her free time.  They are just so much fun.

Tonight is the first night of my last class.  That feels so good to say.  Four weeks and I am done. Done. Done.  However, tonight being my first night of class, would you think there was homework?  You would be right.  Would you think I would have finished said homework? You would be wrong.  Senioritis has set in and taken over in such a way that it has robbed my brain of school organization and ambition. I knew I had homework.  I knew I had x amount of days/time to get it done.  However, it didn’t get done until my lunch hour today.  I was supposed to go to a Leaders Luncheon for work but instead bowed out in order to get my homework done for class tonight. I am lucky that today’s homework was not more taxing.  There have been other classes where an hour working on homework wouldn’t have put a dent into it.  Thankfully that is not the case here and I can leave work today with a complete assignment.  Whew!  Four more weeks to DONE!

I am waiting for Bob to call me.  He had to go to a local clinic today to drop off his…sample for analysis.  He HATES this part of our infertility issues but it’s something that has to be done.  And really, how hard is it to do what he has to do when he really only has to do it once a month or so?  My clinic visits are so much more invasive and uncomfortable what with getting the ho-haw wand inserted at every visit.  You haven’t LIVED until some ultrasound tech has stretched you out from the inside looking for your left ovary.  “You might feel some pressure…there.”  Pressure my eye.  More like force of a thousand kitty cats marching across the inside of my uterus but whatever.  Anyway, he hasn’t called yet and I can’t decide if it’s because he skipped out on the appointment altogether or he just isn’t back yet.  Hope it went well.
