My first night OFF!!!
The timing was a little tight, but we made it over to Kimm’s parent’s house for game night by 5:30 pm.
I was up by 3:30 pm and by 3:45 pm we were on the walk. Back home for a quick shower and languages. Oh yeah, and I made a quick batch of Rice Crispy treats for a dessert/snack.
Dinner was simple, but good — spaghetti, salad and garlic bread. Followed by a few mini Snickers bars!
After dinner Kimm and her dad watched some baseball and chatted while Kimm’s mom helped me with a knitting issue I had (it pretty much involved me needing to undo several rows, and then put the stitches back on the needles — let’s just say it was a little stressful and not much fun).
Finally at about 9:30 we were ready to start playing a game. We played Sequence which we all loved. It’s a game of luck and strategy (you work with a partner to create sequences of 5 on a board — the sequences consist of card faces that you draw from a deck — there are also some wild cards that allow you to put down a marker anywhere or remove an opponent’s marker). The teams were Kimm and her dad against me and Kimm’s mom. We are all quite competitive so it was a lively time. We played five hands — we had each won two, so the tie breaker was EXTRA competitive — my team won (but it was close!)
While playing we munched on some awesome snacks — Cheetos, chips and dip, brownies, Rice Crispy treats. Seriously everything tasted so good and I’m sure I gained a couple of pounds just that night….but I guess you only live once.
It was good the game ended when it did because all of a sudden I got wicked tired.
We packed up and headed home. It was a late night — we got home about midnight.
I would say it was a fun first night off!
