As is the case with many other couples, Saturday is our date night. We both live for Saturdays. Dan's schedule is exactly what you would expect a medical students schedule to be, grueling and rigorous. He wakes up at 5:00 A.M. every morning and heads to school. He studies at school until 9:00 when his classes start. He is in classes from 9:00 A.M. to about 5:00 P.M. He comes home and studies all night until 11:00 P.M, goes to bed and then does it all over again the next day. This is his schedule all week, and the only breaks he takes are to eat dinner and go running. So as you can see, we get pretty excited when Saturday rolls around. Dan still studies all day on Saturday, but after 6:00 P.M. he is all mine! No talking, stressing about school, or doing homework is allowed after six o'clock, and it is my favorite time of the week. We go out to dinner, shopping, rent movies and just have a great time being together. Somehow our date night always seems to revolve around food. This Saturday, we went to a BBQ place, which was ok but nothing to write home about. Then after that we went and got ribs, and dessert, I will spare you all the boring details since this whole blog is turning into a food blog. We then rented Heroes and plan on staying up all night to catch up on all the super-hero filled action. And thanks to all the concerned phone calls about the hurricane. It hasn't hit us too bad here, just a lot of rain and wind, but we appreciate all your concern about us. We have been watching the news and Hurricane Ike has caused a lot of destruction in the Houston area. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those people who have been hurt or lost their homes and businesses.
