My husband and I were supposed to go out of town for a party this evening but we decided to stay home instead.
I thought we were going to go to the party and that the only thing that would keep us from going would be the weather, but the long drive back and forth was a big deterrent too. It would have been close to two hours each way!
Also … we can’t bring our dog to our friends house because she hates dogs, so our Lab would have had to stay home on her own … and if the weather turned while we were going our dog might even end up being on her own over night. Not really a good situation.
So instead of going out to a party we’re staying home and having a great dinner. Our dog also had a nice long walk a little while ago. While we were out walking her we ran into one of our neighbors and talked to him for a while. He’s been trying to help my husband get a job with our city bus company. the man was smoking what I think was one of those monte cristo cigars. He told us he’d received the cigar as a Christmas gift from a friend at work and offered another to my husband … but we both just quit smoking so he passed on that!
I had wanted to go to the party this evening … but we’ll see our friend next weekend at Christmas. The long drive was just too much.
