dinner, a walk, gs, hooray!

In the past, my husband would get home from work sometime after 8pm. Meanwhile, I would keep myself busy working out, hanging with girlfriends, or watching chick-flicks that Rob wouldn’t want to see. Now that he’s a free bird and consulting, we actually have time together. We don’t have to cram everything in on the weekends. When I got home last night, Rob was also on his way home from his first gig…He got home at 6:30pm!! It’s been years, literally, since he got home from work at that time and didn’t have to work from home. We actually ate dinner together, went for a walk, then hit up Golden Spoon before coming home. It was really the perfect weekday night. Hooray!

Once home, Rob did stuff on the computer and I TV flipped – like Weezermonkey, I played along with the Singing Bee contestants. I enjoyed the cheese-factor, the dancing bumble bees, and Joey Fatone, but I can’t guarantee I’ll watch again unless I happen to be TV flipping. One show I’ll try to tune in for is MTV’s X Effect - If you were reunited with your former love, would you close the door on the past or re-kindle the flame? How fun is that? Last week I also caught Engaged and Underage - Ah, to be young and in love -- holding hands, passing notes in class, sharing a first kiss and planning a wedding. Who cares if people think it's too soon to get married! We usually don't get MTV, but for some reason we have it right now so I'm enjoying all the silly reality shows!

















This afternoon, my team at work is throwing me a farewell pizza party. I’m looking forward to saying goodbye, but I’ve been back 4 times now, so who knows, I may be back during my summer breaks – I hope not though! I’m looking forward to enjoying a work-free summer in the future. After today, just 2 workdays left! Yipiee!

Those Mtv shows sound interesting - gulity pleasures. Except, the Engaged and Underage show sounds kind of sad.

I'm quite addicted to MTV reality TV shows. My current favorite is The Hills. It's a bit embarrassing how much I love that show.

Did you get a chance to watch Don't Forget the Lyrics? It's better than The Singing Bee! Try it tonight! :)

Sounds like a great night!

A gig for Rob? Is that a music performance or is he consulting already?
