Little did we know that this decision would also be made for us.
Last night we went out to the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We had FREE cheesecake coupons that expire on the 31st and originally we were going to be gone the following weekend and my son and daughter-in-law are gone the last weekend in March. She likes going there for her birthday (which is in April) and we always get the gift cards at Christmas because they give away free cheesecake coupons. Win-win, right? The way things went, I’m glad we celebrated her birthday early.
Because while we were at the restaurant, the governor declared all restaurants and bars will be closed starting at 9pm and would only remain open for take-out or drive-thru orders.
Man, did we time that party or what?
If Hubby and I do eat out again, we can only get the food to go, or we’ll get Daughter to pickup and bring over (especially if she’s joining us). I do have some food in the house (for once!), and I’ll make one more swing at the commissary today, since I have to go to the base to pick up my medication. I’m kind of curious to see how empty that place is. If it’s even open. It might not be.
I feel like we’re preparing for a huge snow storm. And funny thing is, it did snow Saturday. Got about an inch, which thankfully only stuck to the grass and cars; the roads were clear. I’m still waiting for spring to show up early. Yeah, that groundhog was full of it, wasn’t he? Haha!
It’s a good thing that Hubby and I don’t mind being homebodies. Oh sure, we love to cruise, but we spend a lot of that time doing nothing but reading or writing. At least on the sea days. So I’ll just pretend we’re on several sea days where we can’t go anywhere.
The only bad thing? I have to cook! Oh well, can’t have everything, huh?
So … Are you keeping to yourself more often now or is life the same as usual? I suppose if you’re forced to go to work, it would be the same as usual.
Happy Monday and be safe!
