This has been a long, somewhat stressful week for us . . . so yesterday when Richard suggested getting out of the house for a couple of hours . . . I figured that was more important than staying home and doing laundry and dishes. We went shopping, stopped at a local brewery that was having a beer tasting event, looked at cars, and enjoyed the beautiful Spring day. We ended up being away all afternoon . . . the house is still a mess, and the laundry still needs to be done . . . but it was a good day. Sometimes it is better to just go have fun . . .
