My Solo Weekend Without Brian

Posted on February 23, 2024 by under Food and Drink, Life.    

Brian went out of town last weekend so I got to experience an entire weekend alone. I’m usually the one going out of town so this reversal of roles was quite a change of pace. The first day was super easy because it was a work day. Brian left first thing in the morning so it was just me and Saki the entire day, but it wasn’t really different than any other Friday when Brian goes to work and I’m working from home. Except this time he didn’t come home.

Brian picked up his dad from Oklahoma and the two of them drove to Mississippi to pick up some of his late Aunt Sandy’s personal items. It’s quite a drive so he didn’t come home until Sunday. In the meantime, I had the whole weekend to myself. What to do? What to do?

I didn’t have a commitment until my 4 PM team league at West YMCA so I had a nice leisurely Saturday. I kinda spent most of the morning in bed, reading my Silo book and napping. I actually finished book one (Wool) last weekend. And then I grabbed some lunch and picked up a donation for Picklemania MMXXIV from Top Golf. Came back home and read some more before heading to the Y for league.

My schedule on Sunday was much more structured. I started out at Chicken N Pickle, filling in for Kendra during Team Freddy’s practice because she had to go out of town. And then I was off to the Sandbox to deliver some iPickle Nation awards and also stream the games. Then it was a quick bite to eat before heading to the Genesis in Goddard to hit Missy’s Zumba class.

And then it was time to feed myself and Saki. I made one of our Hello Fresh dinners. It was so relaxing, I felt like that Alena Skaya lady on Insta who always shares the “love myself” reels. When Brian came home, he ate the rest of the Hello Fresh dinner I made and I did some more reading before bed. It was a super relaxing weekend.

Meanwhile Brian sent pictures of their dinners while he was out of town.

They had Mexican on Friday night, which Brian said wasn’t particularly great.

I’m not sure where this was but they also ate it.

They also ate at this place called Ribcage Steakhouse, which Brian really enjoyed.

And that’s pretty much the weekend.
