So Dave was sick last week which is really unusual. He had all the symptoms of Strep Throat without actually having it. He came home on Wednesday and looked horrible. This put a damper on any plans we would have had since his throat was still sore on Saturday. We most likely would not have done anything anyway because I had a dinner party with the girls on Saturday night.
This dinner party was rescheduled from when I had strep last month. It is always so much fun to meet up with Kellie and Lynn from the 40th Birthday Trip. The dinner club also has Mary who is Lynn's sister and Meg who was Lynn's friend, but is now friends with all of us. These dinners are always so much fun and my face hurts from laughing when I go home. It kind of leaves me with an identity crisis as these people remember me at my most horrifying self, but have now seen me at what I hope is getting to be closer to my best. There is nothing quite like having someone tell you how great you are and then in the next sentence tell you that they remember when it seemed like your legs came out of your head which was capped with a really bad perm, glasses and a mouth full of braces.
On Sunday we went to the Cleveland Legofest. It was not what I expected, but I am not sure what I was expecting. All it was was a bunch of Lego's. If you were in the 12 and under set you enjoyed it. For those of us in the 40 and over set, it was a big rip-off. There was an area where you could make a car and then race it down a track. There was a city that was built by the master builders where you could build other things to into it. The boys both made a boat. As soon as you walked away a woman would come by and take your creation away. My favorite part was called the Mystery Mosaic. They gave each of us a 2" x 2" tile that had different colors on it and then we had to match those up to the Lego's on the table. Then you took your square and helped to place it in the big mosaic. One of them was the landscape of Cleveland and the second one was the different characters in Lego video games.
After we were done with the Logos we went to get something to eat at Bob Evans. (Ryan insists that it should be called Bob Ebans.) As we came out a man approached us and told us that he was out of gas and he forgot his wallet. Could we please lend him some money to get some gas so he could get home. I gave him some money and Dave thought I was crazy. I ask you, would you have given him the money? Incidentally, he did go to the gas station. I feel like I paid into the Karma bank with it. I hope one day if I need help someone will help me. You know, the whole do unto others as you will have them do unto you.
It was a fine weekend as far as they go. We made some memories for the boys and spent time together as a family. Really, what more can you ask for?
