John Andretti Race 4 Riley progressive (and delicious) dinner.
- I looked down at bedtime and noticed my stopwatch was running on my phone. That’s how long it had been since I went to lunch…yesterday. Oops.
- Riley is taking her first AP class this year…rather reluctantly. This one is European History and the teacher claims it will teach the students great study habits. Fingers crossed.
- My newest octopus and probably the last one for awhile.
I had a benefits orientation today and the benefits at the new job, so far, very much outweigh some of the discomforts of the job.
We had a picnic today with IUPUI and Purdue. It was a lot of fun but when we got there, the two schools weren’t really speaking. Riley made them play a game and that fixed that…ish. Eventually, we left the picnic with friends and went to a pizza place down the street. They have been trying to get us to try this pizza for months so we were agreeable and it sounded better than hot dogs.
We got home literally with enough time to pick Rick up and head downtown to a baseball game with IUDM.
Like most days in our weekends, it was a long day but a good one.
Today was entertaining. Riley went to the gym and I got a text at work that she got a rip on her hand on the bars. I guess we weren’t surprised since she’s been in the pool a lot, slathered on a hot ton of sunscreen and spent quite a bit of time out of the gym…but still, it had been YEARS since her last rip.
My parents brought her to the hospital for the John Andretti Race for Riley party and she came up to my office long enough to say hi. The two of us rode the People Mover over to Rick’s office and then we were off to see some friends and catch the movie Spiderman. The friends are the ones who have the dog that bit Riley on the face, but happily, neither one of them seemed to care. There’s a picture of Red grovelling at my feet.
