Saturday Night's Alright - For Lameness

I remember Saturday nights in high school. They were about getting together with your friends and going bowling or to a movie or something... just NEVER staying at home. And then in college.. we'd check out a party or go to a bar. In fact, in college, Saturday nights didn't even START until like 10:00 or 11:00 minimum.

Those days are but a distant memory. You know what Steve and I did this Saturday night? I was in the mood for breakfast, so we went to Bob Evans. Now, it's not quite as bad as MCL for the blue haired crowd, but it's close! In fact 2 little old ladies came up to us to ask about Brett (they thought we said Brad, but whatever). I hadn't been to Bob Evans in ages, but for $5.99, their stacked and stuffed hotcakes (and no it's not what you think - I am talking about pancakes) are pretty good!

And then, for the ultimate in coolness. We went to Meijer. Oh yeah... this is like the hottest Saturday night of all time! We shopped for bargains and then Brett started to fuss so we hurried it up to come home.

And, you know what? I was really OK with the whole night. Seriously. I was good to head home and watch t.v. before turning in well before midnight. If 21 year old Carrie could flash forward to 30 year old Carrie and see what her life had turned into, I wonder what she'd think.

Yet more proof that I am OLD.

SO true!!
I'm just impressed that you managed to get out of the house with the baby--our Saturday nights usually involve the couch and pajamas. :)

It's so true. The old us would be ashamed, that the new us, looks so forward to running errands together on a Saturday night, or looking forward to the child's bedtime to be wild and crazy and watch a non-cartoon movie, or just go to bed early ourselves.

Hehe I bet the 21 year old you would also be so in love with Brett that she'd cut the 30 year old you a break. ;)
