What Shall My Wife And I Do With Our Day Off?
I have tomorrow off with my wife.
What will we do?
First, as you see above, we will get dressed up. We are quite formal people.
Then, we are going to go to the U.S. Post Office to mail off some holiday gifts.
My father-in-law worked at the U.S. Post Office for many years. His work helped my wife be able to attend college.
Please support your local post office.
Here is the link to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. The wife and I once went there.
After the post office, I regret to say that we must go to the Apple Computer Store in the Houston Galleria.
You see that iphone in my hand in the picture above?
I dropped it last night and shattered the screen.
I’m not so pleased with this fact.
I do not want to go to the crowded Galleria nine days before Christmas, but hopefully it will be early enough in the morning to beat most of the crowds.
After the Apple Store, the wife and I will have lunch at a Japanese restaurant.
We use forks. Neither of us can handle chopsticks.
When the wife and I go out to eat, we bring newspapers and magazines to read.
We read and we talk to each other. It goes quite well.
After lunch, we are going to go to the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
The wife and I will see an exhibit called Faberge–Imperial Jeweler to the Tsars.
After the museum, the wife and I may—or may not—take a walk in Houston’s Hermann Park.
The walk will depend on the weather and what time of day we are done with all we plan to do.
My wife and I will have a great day off together.
Take some time to be with the people you value in life.
At the same time, be sure to spend some time alone.
A balance of time with people you care about and time spent alone makes for a well-adjusted personality.
That is my theory at least.
