Long Weekend

It's been a long weekend. I really wish our staff meetings weren't on Monday mornings. I suppose that it's both good and bad – we get the meeting done early in the week, but we have to be here on Mondays. We took a little getaway the first part of the weekend then came back for the normal Sunday morning dance at Schweitzer and then a super bowl party for the college students at our house made for a long day.

This weekend Sarah and I went to Columbia on Friday night to hang out with her family and go to the Mizzou/K-State game. It was a great weekend of basketball and food favorites from our college days. Friday night we ate a late dinner at Flat Branch. Saturday morning we ate breakfast at Ernie's Cafe & Steakhouse. It's a Columbia establishment having been around since the 1930s. Ernie's is a bit of a hole in the wall though and if you come with less than three people you should expect to be seated with others. We had six in our group and ended up at a table that should seat four – cozy. The MU/KState basketball game was outstanding. Mizzou was down most of the game, but pulled it out in the end handing KState their first Big 12 defeat. There was much screaming and jumping. After the game we went to Shakespeare's Pizza and devoured a Masterpiece. While we were there we ran into several other Cowherds.

Overall a great weekend. Not very healthy, but a lot of fun with family and friends. I've got to be sure to hit the gym this week.
