I vote for five day weekends and two day work weeks. All in favor say “I”!
This past weekend was great, but !whew! was I a busy girl! Since I was busy doing homework and watching Sunday night TV last night, I didn’t get a chance to do my week in review. I figure now is as good a time as any…
At work we had a DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) fundraiser and I volunteered to compete and let me just tell you…DDR is wicked on the quads and calves!!! It was a heck of a workout! I didn’t win but it was a lot of fun and the kids loved it! After work I headed home to get ready for my Gram’s 80th birthday dinner. We held it on a restaurant on a lake and it was a great time. I had the chicken parm which was to die for and a few glasses of much enjoyed wine. Afterwards, my mom, my aunt and I all went to a local tavern for another drink. All in all it was a great night with my family!
Saturday morning I slept in until 9am!!! My awful-horrible-no-good-neighbor didn’t come home Friday night which meant I got to sleep in 🙂 The rest of my morning was full of errands! After almost a month of not food shopping (the situation in my fridge was pathetic) I was finally able to get to Trader Joes for some much needed items. Then I hit up Target and went home to do laundry. It felt really good to get so much done but seriously, I need a maid cause no matter how hard I try, my house aways seems to be cluttered! Later, I decided to go for a run. I can admit I have been a little lazy since my race and it was time to get back on the move. It was a short run, because I had plans and needed to get home, but I did 3 miles @ 9:47 pace and felt pretty good the whole way. Later that night I went out with a friend for another fun night past my bedtime!
I finished up my food shopping (I shop at like three different places) and went down to my parents house. I visited with my Pop-Pop and cut my Mom-Mom’s hair. Then I met up with my mom and we had a nice lunch followed by a very uneventful shopping trip. I was once again unable to find pants that fit me which sucked, but on the upside I did get two new shirts. Afterwards, it was back home for a night full of homework followed by some Sunday night TV.
This week…you guessed it…busy busy! I feel like I have a paper due every week! On top of work and school, I am officially in apartment hunting mode- after two consecutive horrible living experience, I am being fairly picky this time and therefore starting early. Here are my rules: no complex’s, must have on-site parking and a W&D and most important…I do not want to live under anyone EVER again! My lease is up in February which seems like a long ways away but I know it will come quick so I am looking now. Also, I am looking to get back to spin class tomorrow- I really need to get my workouts back on a regular schedule, so I am hoping to get a few runs in this week as well.
Om, so this post was a little all of the place (scattered, a little like me lately!) and kind of whiney (yuck!) so my thank for sticking it out. For now, I will leave you with some photos from my Gram’s party on Friday night:
