and so the weekend begins . . .

so today . . . we had pizza for dinner. and not the healthy kind.

rollie and i both tend to be homebodies. we like to go out, but really we are happy just staying at home. the last few weeks have been somewhat demanding on two people who just want to hibernate. we have been very busy and often going in different directions.

even today was busy. we have a routine for friday afternoons. rollie picks me up from school at noon, we race to the cheap theater (where you can see a movie for $1.50 and get a really delicious hot dog for only $1!) then, if we haven't eaten too many hot dogs, we go to lunch. that is the beginning of our weekend . . .

but today we didn't do that. instead, we went to a funeral. this was the second funeral in less than a week for me, and it was just too much! it seemed to kind of cap off a hectic couple of weeks for us. when we got home at about 6:00 p.m. we finally hit the wall!! we looked at each other, and rollie said, "well, what do you want to do now?"

"i want to change my clothes, eat food that i shouldn't eat, and veg out in front of the tv!"

"that sounds good to me!" he said. so all that was left to discuss was what kind of forbidden food we were going to eat. i was thinking bar-be-que potato chips, but when rollie suggested pizza, i was immediately on board! we hadn't ordered from pizza hut in so long, i couldn't remember what the menu looked like or if they even still had the thin and crispy crust (which is what rollie was craving.) so i did the only logical thing--i came downstairs and logged onto the internet.

i found the pizza hut site and saw that i could order online! wow, i thought, can they make it any easier to get a pizza? well, apparently they can, because after wrestling with their site for about 20 minutes, i logged off and picked up the phone . . .

the pizza came--well, actually rollie went and got it, but he brought it home, so really--the pizza came!! it was sooooo delicious! we had ordered a large for just the two of us, because it was thin crust which is not nearly as filling as the thicker crust ones. i said it would be great, because we could eat half today and half tomorrow. it was a good plan, and i stuck to it--but rollie did not. he ate ALL of his pizza tonight. (he will be regretting this tomorrow when i am eating my leftovers . . . )

and so our long weekend begins. we will have church on sunday, but other than that, i am hoping for the kind of weekend that includes lots of sleeping, eating, sunshine, and maybe a little tv. oh, yeah, and of course some facebook farming . . .

Julie,

Who went and picked up the pizza was it Pastor Rollie or Bob?

Having pizza sounds good.
