we can't art

6:30 AM

When Paul and I realized that only lame people lay in bed all weekend, we decided to find something new and fun to do in Raleigh.  I grabbed my laptop and looked on TripAdvisor to see what people might do for fun in the capital city, and it looked like the answer to that was simply "eat."  Seriously, there were at least 1,000 restaurants and about 100 things to do.  A lot of the stuff we want to do in the Chapel Hill-Raleigh-Durham triangle involves being outdoors, so that wasn't going to happen on a 35 degree day.  We saw positive reviews about the North Carolina Museum of Art and decided to give it a try.  That's when we discovered that we can't art.
Some of it I understood...

And then there were a couple of Claude Monet pieces, so all was well.
