Up really early; hopped into the car bound for Detroit.
Emily and I attended a memorial service for a friend’s father who passed away recently. I never met him but he seems like my kind of guy… there were Coney dogs at the service because that’s what he would have wanted.
We stopped over at the DIA to check out some art and kill some time. They apparently opened a new wing recently which makes the place far too big to see in just a couple of hours. Still, lots of fascinating stuff there. I’m looking forward to going back.
Headed to another friend’s house in the suburbs of Detroit to catch up, be entertained by their toddler, and talk late into the night. Lots of great conversation.
Up somewhat early. Stopped at a local donut shop for breakfast.
Went to a local coffee shop called the Bean and Leaf and worked on the blog, which upon reflection is a very stereotypical thing for a (temporarily) unemployed person to do.
When Emily was finished we grabbed lunch at a National Coney Island then went to a friend’s house to visit and dote on her babies. One of the twins slept peacefully in my arms until he awoke and realized some strange bozo was holding him.
From there we headed to Joe Louis Arena to see what turned out to be a very exciting game between the Red Wings and the Sharks. The Wings were down 3-0 in the series, so this was a potential elimination game for them but they managed to survive. After getting up to an impressive 3-0 lead in the first period the Wings let the Sharks chip away until it was all tied up, then miraculously scored the game winner with less than two minutes left in the third. It was an exciting game, and I did my husbandly duty and rooted for the Wings all the way.
