Friday Night

What a day.

Work was a blur as we had a half day and I was trying to cram a day's worth of effort into four hours. I left work around one and headed home.

I convinced the girls to go out geocaching with me. The cache was in nearby Lacy Park, but we were unsuccessful. I even had a travel bug to place.

We looked and looked, but the GPS unit was sketchy on pointing me on a consistent location. I couldn't make sense of the clue. It was hot, the girls were complaining, so I decided to find it on another day.

We went to the library afterwards to drop off some books, and lo and behold, there was Fallen Dragon waiting for me on the New Releases shelf. I grabbed it and am currently on page 5.

Later in the afternoon, we took Zoe to her first soccer practice. It looks like she'll have lots of fun. Eight 6 & 7 year old girls do make a lot of noise.

We went out to dinner with the family of one of the girls Zoe is on the team with and will be in first grade with, Ken & June and their kids Emma & Nate. We thought japanese food would be good, but by 8:30 the kids were swinging from the ceiling and we knew it was time to leave. I was amazed that Ken also is a fan of the band X. He even knows more about Tivos than me. I need to invite him out on the next guys night out.

Currently, it's 11:15. Michele is crashed and I'm about to dive into Battelfield 1942. BTW, the contacts are getting more and more comfortable. Life is good.
