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
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
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.
