So, the weekend is finally here.  What a week it has been!  Anyway, well here I at a place I find myself from time to time.  It is Friday after work, I have a sitter and and am exhausted.  I want to go out to "BE OUT".  But A does not seem interested in going anywhere.  How is it there are times we just do not sync up?  Seems like her week was just as hard as mine, and though I love hanging out with my family and relaxing as much as the next guy, sometimes getting out and having a beer and some apps at the bar is a needed vacation.  This is one of those times where I feel like that but A and I are not sync'ing in this thought process.  Guys seem to be wrong about these thoughts often.  Amazing I've gotten to where I am in life being as wrong as I feel like I am so often.  Its not a fight.  It isn't argument (at least not in my mind - I am not sure about what A is thinking now - I have given up trying to read her mind because I ALWAYS think completely wrong).  Ultimately, I want to do what makes my wife happy, always.  So, I guess that is staying in Friday night and falling asleep around 9pm on a Friday night when we have an available option to go out and be adults.  Sometimes I'm just confused because when presented with an option to escape if only for 2 hours the choice always seems to be weighted to the not escaping side.  Im exhausted, as I know she is.  It was a hard week.  Just seems like going out is the thing to do... conjure up the energy and get it done..  My view of this whole thought process is probably skewed as well I'm sure.  The funny thing is we are probably both right.  And we both have valid points but I never have the energy to explain mine and I just go with the flow.   So now, we have to determine what the best option for dinner is, do we order Pizza or subs or Wendy's or what?  I don't know?  Either way, I'm sure we'll have a good night!  Just getting to make a decision is always a tricky issue here.

So, for last nights beer I chose to drink Troegs Hop Back Amber Ale.  This was a nice beer.  But this beer is one of the beers that makes me remember back why I sort of got over hopped in the past.  This is their signature beer so I know it is a top seller.  And I know that people LOVE hoppy IPA style beers.  I guess this is an Amber not a Pale Ale.  Not sure exactly what makes this "different" if it really is different at all.  It is very hoppy.  There was a small amount of caramel malty flavors going on to balance it out but for me it wasn't quite enough.  This beer did pour a nice amber red color.  The texture was a medium body.  One nice note about this beer was that the more I drank of it the more the hops seemed to numb my taste buds a bit and I enjoyed more and more sips of it.  So, this is a hard beer for me to judge.  First impression, it was a bit hoppy for my likes.  That doesn't necessarily mean I want to rank it low either as I said the flavors did seem to work towards the end.

OK, so now I have to figure out what we are doing for dinner.  Andrea is finishing up her cupcake business purchase.  And we are sitting at table deciding what will be our dinner order.  Also, I guess I should start thinking about which beer will be reviewed tonight.  I hope to be able to blog that one tonight as well.

PS.  Seems to be the story of my week - this image is side ways because Weebly is being a little picky for me.  Oh well, I'll go with the flow.

PSS.  So did some quick editing about 3 hours later - and got the image SHIFTED!  Whatever?
