I've officially turned into a pin-cushion. These injections are getting old. I hesitate to complaint because I know it is all for a grand cause.
I didn't make it back to the computer last night to post a blog, so today's is two days in one. We had a nice day yesterday exploring Downtown Dallas. We decided to take the DART train downtown so Keith could have a break from driving and could actually see the scenes. It was an experience. For $5, we each could ride as much as we wanted to anywhere the trains would go on any of the trains or busses. We saw all kinds of characters. One woman I sat next to on the train was reading a book called "Fatal Feng Shui."
We visited the Crow Museum of Asian Art. There were some beautiful things there that I could appreciate. My favorite area of the museum was the Oragami area. We learned to make two different kinds of flowers. Neither one we made ended up looking exactly right, but I hung mine proudly on the colorful wall of paper flowers created by past visitors. We took alot of pictures. I will post them later. We ate lunch at a small cafe in the Dallas Museum of Art. The lady behind the counter upsold us just about everything offered there, and we ended up going from splitting an $8.25 deli sammich and chips to $22 of soup, chili, sandwich, drinks, and dessert.
We found our train station and travelled back to Forest Lane station where we had parked. I was completely exhausted from all of the walking, so we returned to the room, and I slept for three hours. We decided to go to Dave and Busters last night for dinner and fun. We had a nice time. The blackened chicken pasta was great, but I was somewhat disappointed about not getting salad or bread with my dinner. I asked the waitress about halfway through my meal if the pasta wasn't supposed to come with bread. She said "it comes with a dinner roll, would you like one?" Well yeah. If it comes with it, why wasn't it on my plate to begin with? She brought out two hot rolls with butter that were simply divine. Too bad I was almost full. Keith got chicken tenders and fries, and we both ended up with leftovers.
Overall, I feel good. After Dave and Busters last night, we rode out to the other side of Dallas to explore. I was pretty tired by the time we made it back to our room and was just plain grumpy and snappy. Realizing I was being grumpy and snappy made me feel guilty and weepy. Argh. Hormones! I slept great though and feel wonderful this morning. Keith is up and ready to go. We will probably head to Grapevine today since we didn't do that yesterday. It turned out to be a beautiful day yesterday with no rain in site until around 11:00 last night. I haven't looked out today, but there was about a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms in today's forecast.
