The Rest of the Weekend
Friday night my dad had to attend the rehearsal dinner for a wedding he conducted on Saturday and so Justin went with me to the Madison Academy game. We got there about 30 minutes before kickoff and were happy to see that the jumbotron was finally working – eight weeks into the season.
Vanderbilt got a new jumbotron this year and Dr. Flatt, one of the MA boosters was able to secure MA getting the old one. It was quite interesting to see replays of a high school game on a jumbotron. Of course, the whole night long the announcer made comments about the jumbotron and to say we were sick of hearing about it by night’s end is an understatement. I will say it’s a nice addition to the end zone and I’m glad they finally got it working. It also has new speakers on it which makes the sound 100 times better than it was before and it greatly needed to be improved. (I had a picture of this but I apparently deleted it from my phone.)
Saturday after the Liz Hurley run, I went by Goga and did my daily shaking. Goga count for last week – I went four days and saunaed three days. After this week I will get measured and will be posting my results, or lack thereof, here on the blog for you to see.
After Goga, I came home, napped, and then spent the rest of the day cleaning and watching football. For the first time in weeks I didn’t have anything planned or anyone coming over and I had been looking forward to having the day all to myself. Sometimes a girl just needs some solitude. As it turned out, I enjoyed it just as much as I thought I would. I was really thankful to just be able to sit and not do anything if I didn’t want.
Sunday was church and then afterwards I enjoyed a potluck lunch in honor of our friends Jason and Christa. I cannot remember if I mentioned this or not, but back in April of this year, Jason and Christa’s house was hit by a tornado and so they have spent the last few months rebuilding. They spent the night in their house for the first time last night. Their class at church held the potluck lunch and also put together a money tree for them so they could buy things that were lost in the storm.
After lunch, I did my weekly grocery shopping and then took my obligatory Sunday afternoon nap, which was interrupted by a couple of ladies from Jackson Way Baptist going door to door to let folks know about the Trunk or Treat they are having on Halloween night.
I went to church again on Sunday night and then when I got home realized I somehow lost my fitbug. I guess it fell off of the pants I was wearing somewhere at church. I went ahead and ordered another one though because in the one and half weeks I had it, I amassed a lot of points for our work fitness program and I want to make sure I’m able to keep getting those points. Someone may turn it in, but I’m assuming it’s a lost cause and I look forward to getting my new one.
Then after letting The Tide out, as she was coming in, I apparently closed the door too quickly and somehow hit The Tide’s leg. She spent the rest of night hobbling around on three legs. Needless to say, my guilty conscience was working overtime. Hopefully she will be back to normal soon because I cannot afford another vet bill in the midst of Christmas present buying season.
The rest of the night I made mini pumpkin cheesecakes for the Ladies’ Night Out costume party. I’m typing this up on Sunday, so, I’ll let you know later in the week how they turned out; and that, dear friends, was my weekend.
