Today we had to rearrange our plans because of the weather. We rescheduled our boat rental and decided to take a day trip to Columbia.

We had drinks at iTap, so we can now say we’ve been to all of them. Then I took him to my favorite Columbia restaurant: Flatbranch. It’s one of the things I miss most about living in Columbia. (I did part of my undergrad at Mizzou and eventually went back for my law degree so I spent a while there).

The last pic is after we ran through a torrential downpour to get back to the car. The weather has been a mess today. This morning we woke up to water coming out of the ceiling. That was an interesting way to wake up.

Even though we had to change our plans, today has been a good day. The best thing about our relationship is that we have fun with each other no matter what we are doing. I love that.

sunday fun day

  1. I left Jackson with a babysitter this afternoon so I could go to Wolpertinger with Ann.  This is only the second time I have ever left him with someone besides his dad or grandmother. The girl did a great job, and I’m pleased.  I have a regular babysitter now. Yay.
  2. For those that don’t know, Wolpertinger was a craft beer festival. The local breweries all offered beer samples at the new Urban Chestnut location in The Grove, which I was able to walk to since the weather was amazing today.  There was a band. It was fun.  I went to something similar over the summer.  It’s always a good time.  My only regret is that Dave couldn’t make it.
  3. My bf’s ex-wife was there, which was slightly awkward. Saint Louis is too small. But I knew it would happen eventually, and now it’s done. There was no drama.  I’m pleased.
  4. I can’t believe tomorrow is Monday already. I feel like the weekend flew by.  It was a good one.  My partner will be back in the office tomorrow (he was out of the country for a week) and he’s insisting I take some time off. I’ll have to give that some thought. I’m taking a couple of days off in mid-Feb for the water park trip at least.  The kids are going to flip their shit when they see this place.  It looks amazing.
  5. It’s hard to believe that it is almost February. I’m really looking forward to it.  There’s a lot of great stuff going on.  I’m one of those people that really love Valentine’s Day, so I’m particularly looking forward to that. 
  6. I’m afraid to weigh myself tomorrow. There has been too much drinking this weekend.
  7. I have recently developed an addiction to shopping at Nordstrom, and now I have the Nordstrom rewards credit card. Oops.  I’ll be poor, but at least I’ll be cute.
