Leaving Lamesville

Weird how we get into a routine, or a slump, or a rut, or…..you fill in your bleak word for the doldrums. Doesn’t it seem winter really plows us over with dreary days and early sunsets, practically forcing us into hibernation?

But, to tell you the truth, I kind of like our lame life of work-dinner-dvr, with the occasional weekend activity to spice things up. Yeah, my conversations revolve around walkers and the Detroit Mafia in Harlan County and what home-spun advice Dr. Phil doled out that day, but so what?

So, contrary to our usual daily routines, we did some short trips this week, seeing sites, seeing friends, seeing family, and seeing the back roads of Indiana. We returned home last night, but my brain is pretty excited to have had all these different experiences, and it wants more!

So today, I ventured to my self-imposed geographical cut-off point of Indy – Washington Street – for breakfast with the hubs, our girl and hub’s aunt. And later today, we head back to Washington Street for dinner with friends.

We’re jumping out of our routine, especially on the heels of 4 days of going, doing and spending. Traditional day-after-vacation means sticking close to home, keeping the washing machine busy, and placating the dogs we left behind. But, it’s April, and it’s been a long and cold winter, so we are living on the edge.

Whoohooo, breakfast AND dinner out, on or near Washington Street, all in one day! Look out!

We’ll catch up on the DVR and laundry tomorrow.
