i need a weekend to recover from my weekend

  1. I have had a fantastic weekend, but it was crazy busy. I’m just now getting to spend some time alone/at home. It feels wonderful to just relax.
  2. Yesterday I did Shred Level 3 and a 3.4 mile run.  Who’s a bad ass?  I want to do it again today, but I’m not sure I have the energy (or willpower) to make it happen.
  3. I am so ready for my kid to be home. I’m counting down the hours. I’m hoping I’ll have him with me by tomorrow night.
  4. It occurred to me earlier that I’m really happy with my life right now, and I feel very fortunate.
  5. I think the cat is starting to like it here.  It hasn’t been too bad having her this time around.  In fact, I may even miss her a little bit when she goes home. Don’t tell anyone I said that.  (If I try to get a cat, Dave is going to kill me)
  6. This morning I went for a walk with Rosa, her daughter, and her dog. The dog is a bull dog named Gizmo.  He overheated and almost died. It was fucking crazy and scary.  He is okay now, but it took most of the morning and early afternoon to get him stable.
  7. I am in the mood to do some serious shopping, but my bed is calling my name. I thinking I’ve earned the right to lounge about, with a glass of wine, re-watching episodes of Firefly. Or maybe reading. My current book is really good so far. Help For The Haunted. (#40!)

I leave you with my face.  This was earlier this morning before the walk turned into a complete nightmare.

I love those sunglasses. Rack and Clutch is my new favorite thing ever.

sunday fun day

  1. I left Jackson with a babysitter this afternoon so I could go to Wolpertinger with Ann.  This is only the second time I have ever left him with someone besides his dad or grandmother. The girl did a great job, and I’m pleased.  I have a regular babysitter now. Yay.
  2. For those that don’t know, Wolpertinger was a craft beer festival. The local breweries all offered beer samples at the new Urban Chestnut location in The Grove, which I was able to walk to since the weather was amazing today.  There was a band. It was fun.  I went to something similar over the summer.  It’s always a good time.  My only regret is that Dave couldn’t make it.
  3. My bf’s ex-wife was there, which was slightly awkward. Saint Louis is too small. But I knew it would happen eventually, and now it’s done. There was no drama.  I’m pleased.
  4. I can’t believe tomorrow is Monday already. I feel like the weekend flew by.  It was a good one.  My partner will be back in the office tomorrow (he was out of the country for a week) and he’s insisting I take some time off. I’ll have to give that some thought. I’m taking a couple of days off in mid-Feb for the water park trip at least.  The kids are going to flip their shit when they see this place.  It looks amazing.
  5. It’s hard to believe that it is almost February. I’m really looking forward to it.  There’s a lot of great stuff going on.  I’m one of those people that really love Valentine’s Day, so I’m particularly looking forward to that. 
  6. I’m afraid to weigh myself tomorrow. There has been too much drinking this weekend.
  7. I have recently developed an addiction to shopping at Nordstrom, and now I have the Nordstrom rewards credit card. Oops.  I’ll be poor, but at least I’ll be cute.
