Saturday night at our house
The main course: popcorn. The sides: apple slices with peanut butter or naval oranges (grapefruit is a personal favorite) peeled with one of those Tupperware peelers. As I recall, this meal is traditionally served with ginger ale, root beer floats, or hot chocolate. You can, of course, drink whatever you want with it.
There were no board games or movies for us tonight. Just a low key night where we all have gotten to do things we like. Wy got a bath, books, and some songs before bed. Now that he's asleep, I get to nerd around on the internet and post to my blog -- a luxury these days now that there is a walking 13 month old in our house. I'm sitting in the same room as Byron who is also doing something he really likes -- playing Call of Duty with a buddy in Washington D.C. (how late is it there??). He's wearing headphones, so all I periodically hear are things like, "Crap, did I blow you up?" and "I can't believe I'm dead again!" followed by "Let's try this one more time." He's having fun. Oggy is curled up on a mohair chair, which is a place he is normally not allowed to be. What can I say? Even the cat deserves a little fun.
Admittedly, we are home bodies and, frankly, a tad boring. It may not be your idea of a good evening, but this is Saturday night just the way we like it (at least periodically) around here.
