Oh what a weekend! I had an insanely long day on Thursday and was more exhausted than I ever remember being on Friday! I mean I was exhausted to the point that I was on the verge of tears all day! I will just say that I am not a big crier so this was very unusual for me! Once I finally go through the day I got home and found a notice that the sewage and water board would be working on something and my water would be off all day Saturday! Thanks to this wonderful news I spent my Friday night/ Halloween doing all chores that require water, such as laundry! What an exciting Halloween for me! But if I’m honest as exhausted as I was I would have likely stayed home anyway 🙂
Saturday I set my alarm to go off before my water was to be turned off so that I could at least brush my teeth before going to the gym! So I got up and got dressed to go to the gym only to find that I was stuck at home due to an awesome 1/2 marathon! I originally planned to run the Jazz 1/2 but after my ankle injury I had to put my registration on hold until next year. It was our first truly cold day so I put on a hoodie, fixed some hot chocolate and sat on my stoop and watched/cheered on the runners until I could get out to the gym.
Gotta love my view!
Once the race cleared up I was finally able to get to the gym and get in a few miles on the treadmill. Wasn’t great but I’m still taking it slow and easy on my ankles! Since I knew I didn’t have running water at home I ran to the grocery store after the gym to pick up something quick and easy for lunch. The cold snap that morning had me feeling pretty sick with a cold. I swear when I am not feeling well I shop like a college student! When I checked out my cart had 3 bottles of wine (grabbed some on sale), a can of pringles, some Ramen (always makes me feel better when I’m sick!), some progresso soup, and some soup from the deli. After I got home I took some medicine and slept the rest of the day hoping I’d feel better on Sunday since I had to work was supposed to have a date with an old high school friend.
I woke up Sunday still feeling pretty sick so I decided to just work a 1/2 day and then go home and take some more medicine so that I would feel good enough to meet my old high school friend. I have to say that I was able t pull myself together enough to meet my friend and I’m glad I did because for the first time in 2 years I actually had a good date! We didn’t have anything in particular planned which worked out great. We ended up talking over coffee for 2 hours then going to dinner at a seafood restaurant that over looks the lake. Dinner was another couple of hours of good food, good wine, and good intellectual conversation! I do not know where this will go but it was nice to have a good date for a change!
I hope you all had a great weekend and have a great week! Please check out Tara’s blog and join in on the Weekend Update Party! 🙂
