Dear, oh Dear

Last night Chris and I decided to go out to dinner on a "date." We're 1/2 way through a 10 day stretch with no days off and we started to get a little stir crazy. After staying inside for several days in a row and having no outside experiences I really start to get cranky. It was funny because for the past 2 days we'd had workshops on conflict resolution. When Chris and I went out we were both so cranky that I said we'd decided to demonstrate the conflicts we'd heard about for the past few days.

Anyways, I got a little gussied up and we went to a town over to get dinner and then came back to Ossining for dessert at the local diner*. Despite our tired crankiness, it was a nice night. And the best part was when we pulled into the parking lot at Bethany there were 3 deer grazing in the yard, a momma and 2 teens we presumed. We thought they'd skitter off when we got out of the car but they didn't. We had to walk past them to get to the door of the building, but they still didn't budge. They just looked up and watched us closely as we watched them closely. We were about 5 feet from them. Totally cool! (And a little scary.)

*$2.50 double scoop of ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry! What a deal, even if the bathrooms were a little smelly.
