weekend - family sized

On Thursday, I busted out of Richmond around noon and headed to Columbus to visit my mom. Mom made dinner and then I met Erin (who went home as well) at a big indoor / outdoor shopping mall called Easton for dessert and to see a movie. We saw "Hollywoodland". I enjoyed the movie, but left feeling... mmm.. unfulfilled. After the movie we wandered around the mall for a bit and then called it a night.

Woke up mid-morning on Friday and did some quick shopping with Mom. Erin came over that evening for dinner and to hang out with me and mom. After dinner, Erin and I ran to Meijer really quick so I could by an OSU shirt for the next day, and we picked up some apple cider. When we got back to the house, we drank hot apple cider and watched "Finding Nemo", which my mom hadn't seen before. It was a nice evening.

Saturday was a big day. I was meeting Erin, her mom, and dad, for lunch and then going to watch the OSU vs Michigan State game at her house. They have a tradition that they go to Wendy's for lunch and get a Buckeye Frosty before the game. OSU pretty much demolished Michigan. After the game, Erin's mom made a really great dinner, and then we played card games. Erin's family is insane when it comes to card games, apparently, so they were preparing me for the holidays. They played a game much like Phase 10, and then a game called Sequence. Both were a lot of fun. I did really well in the first game until the last couple of hands. And Erin and I took on her mom and dad in Sequence and dominated! After Erin's parents went to bed, we cuddled on the couch and watched TV. It was about one or two AM when I decided it was time for me to head back to mom's.

The worst part of the trip was the drive back to Richmond on Sunday. I listened to Cincy take on Tampa Bay on the drive home. Both teams played sloppy, and by the end of the game, the officials had taken then game pretty much out of the players hands and were the ones moving the ball. Several bad calls for both teams in delicate situations resulted in a Bengals loss and an extremely bitter and pissed off Scott. A pretty sucky way to end a really terrific weekend.
