Lately, my life has seemed a bit rigid. Between all the scheduling, planning, budgeting and weight-loss scheming, I think I have forgotten to let go and have fun.
This week, my schedule was thrown a little of whack because my Dad was in town Tuesday for work and Wednesday night for the Tiger’s vs. Cubs game. Of course, I was very excited for my Dad to visit, but beforehand a small part of me felt really anxious. Two late nights in a row? My routine thrown off? Oh the horror!
Finally, I decided to throw caution to the wind and just go with it. And I’m so glad I did! Tuesday night we took my Dad to our favorite local beer bar, Firkin, where I enjoyed a few beers and a burger. Last night before the game, we went to our favorite beer bar in the city, Sheffield’s, where I enjoyed more beer with my favorite buffalo chicken rolls and a pulled pork sandwich. I ate until I was full both nights, enjoyed every bite and don’t feel bad at all for splurging! Plus, the Tiger’s crushed the Cubs so that made me happy. 🙂
However, when the Cubs play other teams I will happily wear this shirt Rich bought me.
This morning, I noticed that Rich’s favorite comedian is in town this weekend and tickets were still available. We’ve been on a major budget with the wedding approaching, but when I called Rich to discuss, his response was more than sufficient. You only live once!
Tonight, I would like to do some type of physical activity but that’s yet to be determined. I’m slightly thrown off with this not having a plan thing, but I think this is exactly what I needed.
In other news, Rich had the day off work, and while I was gone he cleaned out our garage, constructed shelves and made himself a little “man cave” in our garage. So maybe my physical activity for the day will be walking downstairs to enjoy a cocktail in his new cave. You only live once!
