Date Night

For tonight’s date night we headed to Sicilian Oven in Delray. It’s a lot more casual than the restaurant we visited last week. Thankfully, it was a beautiful night because we ended up sitting outside waiting for a table for over an hour. There were people waiting everywhere! The night sky was absolutely beautiful with a crescent moon off to the west. By the time we got sat, I was bordering on hangry. I’m never happy when a “30” minute wait turns into a 60 minute plus wait.

We started our dinner with some bruschetta and wood fired wings. Both appetizers were very good. I definitely would order them again. we washed them down with a strawberry aperol spritz and blood organge margarita. I liked my spritz, but the hubby didn’t love his margarita. We shared a wood fired pizza with pepperoni, sausage and meatballs for dinner. The pizza was good, but I didn’t love the sausage. I’m not sure that we’ll go back. The good was good, but not worth the hour wait.

You’ll be happy to know that Goalielocks remembered to bring his little brother to school today, so I’m going to count that as a win for the day. My day at work was okay, but it was free benefits Friday. I had an okay day, but it certainly wasn’t stellar. Honestly, this week has pretty much sucked. Hopefully, it will get better.

We were able to speak with Jake yesterday, which is always a great. He looked and sounded wonderful. In fact, he even look well rested. Thursdays are defiantly my favorite day since we get to talk to and see Jake. I can’t wait for him to come back for a visit! On Fridays, I wear red to remember everyone deployed. So if you have red, throw it on every Friday and support the brave men and women of our military that have been deployed. And now I’m off to cap off date night by defrosting my venison tenderloin for Sunday. Yep, we’re going to have a crepuscular animal for dinner

Forgot Something

So apparently Goalielocks forgot something when he left for school this morning. Okay, technically he forgot two things because he also forgot his volleyball shoes. Unfortunately, Goalielocks went to school without his brother. We discovered this when the Mayor stormed into our room yelling that nobody woke him up and his alarm didn’t go off. Fortunately, my Hubby was headed South, so he was able to drop the Mayor off at school.

Consequently, I had to text Goalielocks to see what he would say. I sent him a text asking if he forgot something and he had no idea what I was talking about. Calmly, I responded that he had left his brother behind. At the point, he claimed the Mayor told him I said he could stay home as he wasn’t feeling well. Meanwhile, the Mayor has no recollection of that conversation, which isn’t surprising if he was half asleep. Nonetheless, the whole situation had my hubby and I in stitches.

I took the last two nights off the blog because I was absolutely exhausted. The Mayor had a scrimmage in Pompano Tuesday night, which saw us getting home well after our bed time. By the time we fell asleep, it was well after midnight. Oh my alarm came way too early yesterday morning. Honestly, I was absolutely fried. I even took a mini nap after I finished my workout. Nevertheless, I went to bed mighty early as i was still exhausted.

The Mayor, by the way, had a great scrimmage. He scored the game winning goal and had an assist on the second goal. His team beat the top team in their division, which was a nice confidence booster before states. If only it was like two hours earlier and a few degrees warmer, it would have been the perfect night. Meanwhile in Boca, Goalelielocks’ volleyball team had their first game of the season. They also won!

So I’ve been flabby for awhile now, which is why I started the Calibrate program last month. I have packed on the pounds since my doctor diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid disease. Unfortunately, these extra pounds have shown a level of resiliency not often seen in this world. Like a pebble in your shoe, they have been the bane of my existence. Fortunately, I’ve met with some early success with the program. I’ve got high hopes!
