As you have read over the time of our blog we have had quite a few friends move away from Pensacola in the past year. We still have some great friends here in town, but our weekend activities have slowed a bit over time. Now, with no kids or pets or weekend jobs you have probably wondered on numerous occassions what we do on these not-so-booked weekends, and I don’t blame you, it’s a great wonder to many. So today I thought I would give you a peek into what one of these weekends may look like. I’m going to call it “A Weekend at the Ringls”. Here we go…
Possibly Awesome Weekend, aka “A Weekend at the Ringls“
Each Saturday morning would start the same, with a hearty delicious breakfast of fresh french toast, topped with confectionary sugar and some fruit with whipped cream, mhmm good ! Then, depending on the weather (and Stephen’s willingness to go) there may (or may not) be a nice walk involved. If all goes as planned (or Cassie’s way) that big breakfast would be followed with a nice walk around the huge neighborhood we live in, which usually involves a lot of fun joking around and talking. After that Stephen and I would have a vote on what to do next, we would either:
a) play some MarioKart on the Wii
b) watch 1-3 of the Lord of the Rings movies
c) go play some tennis, or
d) watch Dr. Horribles Sing-Along Blog, including the outtakes
Now, I don’t know about you, but that’s a pretty hard call on which would be best. Of course there is the theory that we could fit most of those activities into 1 full Saturday, but that’s not the point here.
So, after “said chosen activitie(s)” it would be close to time for some dinner. This is another occassion in which voting would occur. We could choose to:
a) eat a sandwich
b) go to Cassie’s parents
c) go to Stephen’s parents, or
d) go to both Cassie’s parents AND Stephen’s parents!
You see there, almost all of those are GREAT options. The best option is usually the free, less clean-up option, so that could tilt the vote quite a bit, depending on who’s serving what ;)
Depending on what we do for dinner, added activities could be involved. For example, if we go to Stephen’s parents we would either play some Euker, which is a card game of 2 sets of partners, or we would play MarioKart, which usually involves dad and mom (Mark and Bobbie) beating us beyond belief and us leaving after a gruesome defeat. Now, on the other side we would be at my parents and we would probably play some Uno-Attack or Balderdash. Uno Attack is always fun, and with Balderdash usually the most creative person wins. Either way, both parents would have us going home with our bellys full of yummy grub.
So that honestly about sums it up. That there is the possible unfolding of any relaxing and enjoyable Saturday with Stephen and I. I hope you enjoyed the picture of what we could be doing on any given weekend. Until next time, I will leave you with this Ringl-trivia question:
Which of the 2 Ringl’s got trapped under their bed while avoiding a beautiful saturday walk?
