The weekend started out with good intentions. On Friday, Mike and I met up with some friends at a bar -- where we limited ourselves greatly. We each had two ciders and we felt fine. We came home and instead of going straight to bed ... we both read on our Kindles. We were incredibly responsible adults!
Saturday morning, we woke up incredibly late though despite having set an alarm for 8 am. Rolling out of bed around 11 am, the plan to hike was still on. And, so we did. We drove up to A Mountain where I had a great time and Mike - not so much. Afterwards, we came back, grabbed the dogs, and decided to get lunch and have one beer each.
Not so fast. The moment we sat down, a liquor rep approached us and offered us free Bloody Mary's that were made with Patron's vodka. Turning down a free drink is bad luck. So, we started off with mediocre Bloody Mary's. Then, I had to have that cider I wanted. And things quickly devolved from there.
I want to be able to enjoy my weekends off. This PARTYDRINKPARTY mentality I've had since turning 21 is getting boring and is losing its luster. Spending all your time at the bar isn't fun anymore -- it's just depressing.
That said. Sunday was low-key. After getting my Sunday paper, we decided to see a movie and I based my choice solely off the fact that Louis CK had a part in American Hustle
. I enjoyed it and didn't think it was long. Mike wasn't a fan and thought it lasted for days. So, mixed reviews.
A fairly decent weekend. We truly did try to be productive and we're slowly getting back on that active horse. We're trying, guys. We're trying.
