Good thing I don’t gamble on football..

The NFL wild card weekend is over. The games are in the book.  I picked all four losing teams this weekend.  Dam!  Does it really matter? Does life go on?  No and of course.  I watched most of the Bengals game. I watched a little of the Packers game. I watched no football today.  I was not boycotting after my two Saturday teams lost, I was just busy and it was nice and sunny out. 50 degrees on a Sunday in January is to be cherished. 

Walking, we (DW and I) continue to walk our mile a day.  Today is January 6, 2013. This means we have walked no less than 6 miles this year! Yesterday we walked in the park near our home. Today she did her mile doing  her walking tapes and I played lacrosse with DS1, DS3 and one of DS3’s friends for 90 minutes. That has to be better than 20 minutes of walking. Or at least equivalent.  I was playing catch with DS1 (ex-college lacrosse player) and we were throwing the ball pretty hard at each other and I was slow bringing my stick up and the ball hit the top of my stick head and broke the plastic. Heads cost between 60 and 100 dollars each. It still surprises me how sturdy and fragile they are at the same time.

Tonight we (the whole family) went out to eat to celebrate the last family dinner before DS2 goes back to college for his spring semester. We went to Makoto Japanese Restaurant here in Manahawkin.  The restaurant is known for its sushi and hibachi meals.  We have eaten here many times, usually to celebrate someone’s birthday. The food is good, the chef’s entertain and if it is your birthday, the entire restaurant will sing Happy Birthday to you! There are pictures below from tonight’s festivities. The entire folder of pictures from tonight can be found here.

Here are a few of tonight’s pictures.  Enjoy!

Namaste

PS At dinner a challenge was given to write a fictional first person account of the killing of the last Velociraptor that existed in North America. The challenge will be met and exceeded. Stay tuned..
