A Good Day

I wanted to blog last night, but I was plum tuckered! Funny how a good day can leave you rested and worn out all at once.

The day started with an IM session with Corey. We worked for 2 1/2 hours on our "letters" story. We made some real progress on revisions and only had one real disagreement. There's always something to disagree about when co-writing, but that's a way to ensure that our writing is the best it can be. We rarely settle on "good enough," but keep working until we are both thrilled with each word, each line, each detail of our story. It can be tough (and at times frustrating), but it is also fun and oh so worth all the effort! We've written some darn good stuff.

After all that work, it was time for lunch. I cut up a mango for the four of us to share, and it was like biting into a chunk of summer! I would love some warmer weather, especially considering it has been too cold to enjoy what snow we've gotten so far. It's almost the end of January and we haven't gone sledding yet!

Enough rambling, though. Last night we went out dinner at The Pizza Machine. It's a pizza buffet place with indoor rides and video games. We paid for an unlimited play card and proceeded to play. The first thing we played was the "Deal or No Deal" video game, which works much like the TV game show, except you win tickets instead of money. We hit the JACKPOT! We had the winning case--400 tickets! It was such a riot, people around us probably thought we were crazy with our yoo-hoos and laughter. But that is not all, oh no, that is not all.

We also rode the go-carts. When I raced, I was in last place the whole time, but I had fun and gave my arms a good workout. My oldest daughter came in second place when she raced, and my younger daughter came in first! It was so much fun cheering her on. One time she even yelled "Daaad!" in annoyance after he yelled at her to "hug the curves" for the 18th time. She was very proud to have that blue ribbon in her hand when we left.

I could go on about the fun we had, but it was just nice to goof off with my hubby and kids until late into the night (I kicked hubby's butt in air hockey). I wonder what we'll do next weekend?

    Sounds like a great time. Next time we are in Omaha we should take our families there for some fun.

    Missing you!

  2. Well, he beat my once too, but the machine wasn't scoring right. ;-)

    Can't wait to play air hockey with you, Ang!
