I always find it strange that we say “Happy Memorial Day,” when in reality something like “Somber Memorial Day” would be more appropriate. Before we get to the silly things we did over the weekend, let’s just pause and reflect on the fact that thousands have died defending and protecting this country – the ones we honor and celebrate on this day are not here to boat and BBQ with us.
With that said, Memorial Day weekend 2015 was a good one. Friday, I had a half day of work (very productive) and was able to clean the house the second half of the day (also very productive). We went out on a double date with another couple-friend of ours, Kristen and Jordan. Dinner was yummy and the conversation was the best part of the evening, but the restaurant’s service and atmosphere were a bit off.
On Saturday, we headed to Lake Livingston to meet up with the family for a day on the water. The sprinkles came and went, but we still had a great time on the boat with mom, Chris, Kourt and the monkey children. I have no pictures because phones and boats don’t mix.
Sunday was church, errands and laziness. Monday was baseball, gym and nail appointment. Monday night into Tuesday morning was RAIN RAIN RAIN and half of Houston is underwater. Everything in Spring/Klein is just fine, but the roads into my office are impassible and my building is without water and AC – so it’s a work from home day for me. Chad’s school district cancelled classes as there was some bad flooding off of 290 (where most of his ISD is located), so he’s enjoying a day of relaxing ahead of finals prep. As usual, Cooper was scared of the rain and got to spend 2-5 a.m. in bed with mom and dad.
