Us? Adults? Really?

(Just a quick update from the last post first: There was nothing impressive about the Professor's Porn Collection - Just a few foreign-porn dvds and about 10 years' worth of Playboy. Unless someone had already bought all the porn 90 minutes into the sale, that's all he had. Such a let-down!)

Another great weekend is under our belts. (Except that mine is continuing. No work today, so I'm at home conquering my mountain of laundry.)

Do you know what's kind of hard? When you realize that you really are an adult. Saturday confirmed that for me.

We woke up early (because that's when we're trained to get up for work now) and spent the day shopping for plants and frames. I wanted some herbs for an indoor herb garden, so I bought these:
(Basil, Parsley, and Thyme)

We also had recently re-arranged the furniture, so we needed a large plant for one corner that was looking rather empty:
(I am naming it Bob.)
(No, I don't know why, it just looks like a Bob.)
(What? Don't you name your houseplants?)

And we also needed a plant for an empty pot we had, so we got this:
(I'm going for obvious here and naming this one Ivy.)

We also used the frames we got to frame some artwork we just had sitting around without frames (thank you to Kara for keeping us in art). Aaron went right to work hanging them up:

(He's so handy!)

After we did all that, Aaron dusted and cleaned the tables and chairs in the dining room, and vacuumed the dining and living rooms (pictures omitted so that he can keep some of his man-cred) and I swept and mopped the kitchen floor after doing all the dishes.

It was intense y'all. We got a lot done. On a Saturday.

Then we went out to eat at our favorite Japanese steakhouse, where I had one hell of a Mai Tai and the lobster tail. Aaron had a Sapporo bigger than his head and a steak/shrimp combo.

After dinner we rolled home and watched Dazed and Confused because after a day like that, you have to watch some mindless comedy, lest you become too serious and adult-like.

After all, you have to retain some of the goofiness to get you through:

(Look at that face. Who couldn't love a face like that? Hah!)
(He seriously laughed at himself in this picture for a good 15 minutes after taking it.)
(Which made me laugh with him, not at him, for about 15 minutes too.)

Tomorrow: The story of the Giant Panic Attack. See you then.

I'm kinda bummed the sale wasn't a little spicier. But its all balanced out by beer bigger than heads.

Yes, we all have to grow up and then realize that we are a "grown up". But I don't think it sucks too bad to be an adult. Could be worse...we could be teenagers!

(love the little herb garden)
