September 17th, 2006

Well that was an interesting break, even if it didn’t last as long as I said it would! I missed reading blogs a bit, but I noticed time went by slower when I wasn’t online. I think from now on I’m going to read less blogs and spend more time with hobbies and whatnot. I’ll probably still go online every day, but maybe not for hours at a time.

Friday after work we went to Wendy’s for a quick bite to eat before going for a bike ride. We didn’t go nearly as far as last time; I think after work is probably a bad time because we’re tired from working all day. We’ll probably have to go early on a Saturday or Sunday from now on. To make the trip worthwhile, we walked around Herrick Lake for a bit watching the cute chipmunks run around. They are way cuter than squirrels but less trusting of humans.

Afterwards we stopped at Petsmart to look at the animals. I swear I am addicted to that place. I go there far too often even though I have no real reason to be there. If I had the time and space, I’d probably own a ton of animals. I really like the fire-bellied toads and fancy goldfish. I even wouldn’t mind a dog at some point. Cats are a given, of course.

On the way back home we stopped at Portillo’s to get a chocolate shake. I’m really not big on shakes but for some reason I just had a taste for one. You should see how long the drive-thru gets! They have people coming to your car to take your order and collect payment so that by the time you make it to the window they just hand you the food. I could only imagine how hellish the wait would be if they didn’t do that. As it was we waited 10 minutes for our shakes. Not that I cared. It was a beautiful evening and we had nothing pressing to get home to. In fact, I think all we did when we got home was watch a bunch of shows we had DVR’d to make space for all the season premieres this week.
