Sat I worked and Spouse went to the gym. Steven & Thad joined the new gym so Spouse went with them for free as their guest, rather than going to the ghetto gym. I left work early because we were due for an early dinner at 4:00 at Steven & Thad's. Their good friends John & Carol Ann came down from NJ for a visit but were leaving that night, which explained the reason for dinner at 4:00. Steven made his version of braciole (pronounced bra-shole), meatballs, Italian sausage, spaghetti, shells, and salad. Spouse & I brought plain ciabatta and rosemary focaccia, and Carol Ann brought a homemade pound cake. We had a delicious dinner and a wonderful time visiting with our buddies and their good friends.
Sun morning Spouse went to the ghetto gym and I went to the new gym as Steve & Thad's guest. Its really nice! Its a huge space with lots and lots of machines, free towels, free yoga, free spinning, free zumba, free tanning, and a 'movie room' that shows films on a huge movie screen while you work out. Its open 24 hours and only costs $19.99 per month! Its all the things the ghetto gym is not and I love it. I'm definitely going to join. I spent an hour on the treadmill, on the 'weight loss' setting. Afterward Spouse met us for breakfast where I had a fruit plate and an egg sandwhich. Spouse had a fruit plate and an egg white omelette with spinach and mushrooms. Afterward we tood Jordan for a walk and then ran a few errands. Later that evening we went back to Steven & Thad's to try and finish the leftovers from the previous night's dinner. Then we watched Temple Grandin on DVD, starring Claire Danes, based on the real life story of Temple Grandin. We really liked it and I would recommend everyone add it to your Netflix queue.
