January Challenge, Day 24

January 26, 2015
It was a full Saturday!
I took Samone, my Little Sis, over to my dad’s house for the tour of his new toy! We took a moment for a photo op at the huge tree trunk that my dad has turned into a nice table in his back yard!
Then we checked out the new toy!
My brother helped him get it home last weekend and they spent they day cleaning it out. Yesterday morning, he offered tours to anyone who was interested. Surprisingly…..or maybe not so surprisingly, a few of us showed up for the tour!
It’s been sitting for a while, but dad seems anxious to get started putting some life back in to this cute little camper.
I’m excited to see it all fixed up! I see camping with my dad in my future, card games around the table, scrambling eggs at the little stove! I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of plans he has for his new little gem!
After the camper tour, Samone and I headed out for lunch. I was going to order a big salad, and instead opted for breakfast number two. I didn’t get in a huge variety of foods yesterday.
Mike and I went on a date last night. Pretty much anything that could go wrong, did go wrong. But in the end, we still had a good time, and I stuck to my plan.
I made a reservation, but they had no record of it. We went elsewhere.
We pondered three other places, and stopped at one to discover an hour wait. When you’re not drinking, an hour wait is a really long time! What do people do if they are not drinking when they wait that long??? Well, we’ll never know.
We picked another spot, we were seated and we placed our orders. When our food was brought to our table, a waitress, (not ours), came by and literally took Mike’s plate off of the table and said it belonged to someone else! Not kidding. Our waiter sat my plate in from of me and said to Mike….”I’ll be back. I know where your food is.” Eventually Mikes food came out, and it was no longer warm. 
The check came, and we had been charged for my meal twice.
Let’s just say, we’ve had better date nights. We actually had a really good time though and found all sorts of things to chat about. And really, that’s what date night’s are all about.
