June 8, 2010: Date Night

Did well at getting into work at a decent time this morning.  I’m working hard to get up early in the morning and get out the door.  I was doing well then started getting out of the habit for a while there.  I really have to get in early or else it is so hot that I just can’t stand it.  It is getting to be crazy hot here in Texas.  We are already into temperatures to which I am not accustomed.

Work was insanely busy today.  Very little time to think at all.  I walked home for lunch today – it was quite warm but somehow it never seems to be as bad when going home for lunch as it is coming into the office early in the morning.  I wonder if it might be a lot more humid first thing in the morning or something?

The plan for this evening was to go to La Cima to use our free meal vouchers for the month of June because tonight is the last opportunity to use them at all.  So we made seven o’clock reservations.  I also made reservations for tomorrow night at La Cima to take the Grices to pasta night.

I tried to get out of work early but that did not work out at all.  Instead of making it away early I ended up getting stuck quite late.  I called Dominica and had her pick me up from work to save time.  I did not manage to get out until around seven thirty which was quite late for getting over to the club.

We got over to the club and had an awesome dinner, even if it was late and Liesl was way past her time to start winding down for the night.  We had our huge four course dinners plus a side of mac and cheese that was amazing.  Maybe the best that I have ever had.  Instead of swordfish they had lemon crusted halibut which we both ended up getting.  I didn’t like it as much as the swordfish but it was good.

Liesl was getting fussy so we grabbed our desserts and made a dash to get home.  That worked fairly well.  We were still pushing our luck but she was decently happy.

Tonight was our last night alone.  The Grices are arriving from Houston tomorrow morning.
