The Past Few Days

Yes, I know, no post on Sunday night/Monday. I just was not in a writing mood on Sunday night and am actually still not in much of a writing mood; but, my public awaits or something like that. I just do not have much going on right now and sometimes it's hard to make boring interesting. Where to begin?

Last Thursday I had an appointment at the Downtown Y to get set up on their FitLinxx System. It takes about an hour and basically one of the staff sets you up on all the weight equipment. Then when you go to work out, you sign in and at each station, the system tells you where to place the settings for the seats and backs and how much weight you are supposed to use as well as how many reps and sets. It's a pretty interesting system and tracks your progress and how much weight you lift, etc. I'm pretty excited to start using, although it will be a few days yet as almost every night this week I have something on the calendar.
After the trip to the gym, I came home to mow the lawn. I started about 6:15 with the weed eating and finally finished up a little before 8:00. It was hot and really humid; I'm sure I could have wrung the sweat out of my shirt. Waiting until later in the evening was a good move though because I didn't think I was going to kill over like I did the week before.

Friday night I had planned to watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics and do some laundry and cleaning; however, in a twist of plans, Jackie decided to stop by (not uninvited although she never said for sure yes so I thought she wasn't coming - ha!) and so all the cleaning and laundering came to a screeching halt while we chatted about everything under the sun and watched the ceremonies together.

Saturday I went to a baby shower for my sweet friend Shelley and munched on some awesome sausage rolls (I couldn't get enough!) and delicious cake. There was also fruit tea and you can never go wrong with fruit tea. The shower was out towards Hampton Cove so I made a stop by Mr. Donut before my weekly trip to Publix. I haven't been to Mr. Donut in a long while and I was kind of disappointed with the donuts I got that morning. They didn't taste as fresh as they normally do. I need to consult my parents on this as they stop by much more frequently than I do. Saturday afternoon I napped and then watched more Olympics and cleaned and did laundry. For the first time in many weekends I got all of the cleaning done before Sunday. I contribute this to boring television and the fact that I already knew the results of the swimming thanks to NBC blabbing about it earlier in the day.

Sunday, as is always the case, was a trip to church and the continuation of the quest for a class. I was sans Jackie on this particular Sunday so I went with my cousin Anna again. I know I keep saying I will one day blog about this in detail and I swear I will. I guess I want it to have a happy ending before I start writing that story. I had lunch with my cousins Chris, Amy and Bennett who is now about 10 feet tall and while dining we ended up sitting next to a former flame/friend - awkward. Isn't it ridiculous how you can be so close with someone for 12 years or more and then act like complete strangers and not even speak to one another. Life is so bizarre. Sunday night we had the fifth Sunday singing at Chase Park and it was filled with some sappy songs. I cooked some spaghetti for dinner that night and generally enjoyed an evening with The Tide who seems to not be feeling so well these days. I'm not sure if it's the heat, the old age or the supposed fronts of rain coming through. Perhaps she is just depressed, although I don't know what about because that dog has it made.

That was my weekend in a nutshell.

I don't know about you, but on Mondays, I wear the same outfit to work that I wore to church the previous day - provided I don't spill my lunch all over myself anyway. I guess I must have taken my cardigan off such that it was wrong side out on Sunday because I wore it in to work wrong side out this morning. Oh yes I did. The guy who sits behind me finally noticed it and brought it to my attention. Needless to say, it gave me a good laugh. Hopefully it brought you a good laugh as well.

So did you like the early shower?? Shelley was worried that people wouldn't come because we did a 10am brunch, but I think we had a great turn out!! Thanks for coming and it was great to see you!!
