We still have no power at our house and are staying with Beth's parents up in The Woodlands. Hopefully by the end of this week we will have power but who knows. Keep your fingers crossed. Until then, it's been great staying with Beth's parents. I'm a pretty lucky guy to have great in-laws.
Beth and I have a pretty busy week ahead of us. My friend Shawn Barker called yesterday and asked if I wanted tickets to the Astros game on Thursday night. I told him of course so we invited a couple that we have been hanging out with from church named Mike and Krista. They are about our age and it's nice to hangout with another married couple who is in the same boat we are(without kids).
On Saturday, Beth and I are going to Austin for the Texas/Arkansas football game. I obviously don't like Texas, but am a huge college football fan and just going to the game will be great. The way Arkansas has been playing this year, it may not be a very good game, but we'll see.
Then on Sunday we are going to another Astros game with Shawn who will be in town with his nephew. They are playing the Braves and since I was born in Atlanta and saw the Braves play in the World Series back in the 90s, I always love a chance to see them play. Other than that, I'm just going to relax and enjoy being able to hangout with Beth while not being exhausted from work. Things are slowly getting back to normal in Houston after Hurricane Ike, but places are either still closed or close early and the grocery stores aren't fully stocked yet. In fact, Beth and I haven't been able to find ice cream at the grocery stores. What is the world coming to? A world without ice cream is no world at all in my book.
