My Weekend

This was one of the worst weekends I have had in a long time. It was a good day yesterday being with family, but I was sick and couldn't really enjoy myself. Here is how the weekend went down.

After working the day with my head about to blow off from a headache, my nose so stuffed I couldn't breathe, and a fever of 101, I finally got out of the office a little after 5. When I arrived home I find my wife crying on the phone and already in her pajamas. She says she is depressed because she has no friends yet in St. Louis. Now I do feel bad for her, but it is hard at times because I don't see her making any attempt to make friends. Friends don't just knock on your door and say, "Hi, I'd like to be your friend". Anyways, my wife was in a bad mood all Friday night, we argued, and I laid in bed and watched TV. Great Friday night.

I woke up and still had my headache, fever, and my eyes watering so bad it looked like I was crying my eyes out. I had received some money for my birthday and wanted to go get some softball gear, and my wife had some stuff she wanted to return at the mall. My wife is also getting ready to go on vacation to Florida (yes, without me) with some of her friends so she was wanting to get some stuff for trip as well. So we headed out, and first stopped for some eats at the Cracker Barrel.
When we got to the mall everything was fine for a little while, but then it all fell apart. Let me break it down. We had agreed that my wife had $100 to spend to get a few things for the trip, but after she had spent that $100, she believed she could get more. Needless to say that did not set well with me. Arguing about money is the best. So we left the mall, and went home in silence not speaking for a little while. After the storm blew over I got to end my incredible day coloring Easter eggs. If that doesn't bring out the testosterone in you, I don't know what will. The only saving grace was that I got to watch the tourney while we dyed the eggs.

We tried a new church, and it was a great one. That was a good thing. We then had a great meal over at my Dad's house. However, I was feeling so sick I really couldn't enjoy myself. It was good to see everyone and be able to chat, but it would have been nice to not feel so horrible.

Today has been a little better because I am starting to feel better. However, the first email I received this morning was from a friend who had just broken off his engagement. That is a bummer. I am guessing I don't feel as bad as he or his girlfriend do. Things will get married.

Here is to being married. Even though it is hard at times, it is the greatest thing in the world. Here is to March Madness, even though my Duke Blue Devils turned the ball over like 20 times and lost. Here is to horrible weekends. Here is to arguing about money. It is the best.

If you have any ideas about what I should write about, please let me know. If you want my opinion on something, just leave it under the comments and I will see what I can come up with. I have writer's block.
