Unorthodox date night

Sometimes "rest" doesn't look the way you expect (for some great thoughts on rest, see this post by my friend Alex Kirk). Yesterday evening, I got home from work and took the girls to McDonalds so Diane could have some quiet time at the house, which she used to clean (this was restful for her). The girls and I stopped at the grocery store and picked up some food for supper, and as Diane put them to bed, I grilled a couple steaks, cooked some garlic green beans and a sweet potato, and had our meal ready for tip off of the UNC-State game. Diane and I enjoyed watching the Heels dismantle the Wolfpack, and I had fun demonstrating the art of the backdoor cut using our couch and lamp as the offensive players (and whose ability to perform said cut was only slightly less than the Pack's last night). It has been so great to be able to enjoy UNC games with Diane, and a "W" makes it all the sweeter.
