I'm getting more behind every day! Not good! It seems that I'm just spinning wheels and hoping that something grabs and sticks. Ugh! All these great plans to get my house in order and all I've accomplished this weekend is to get it more out of order.
I had hopes of getting through a box of miscellaneous junk, oh . . . I mean papers . . . that need to be cataloged and filed. Running out of places to file things away without going downstairs into the dark, dingy area where my 4-drawer file cabinet is so I found a Sauder 2-drawer file cabinet to buy and put together. It's really nice and it was a fun bonding time with dear youngest son (he might not have thought so but Dad thought it would be good for him) and we got it put together on Saturday.
Lo and behold, stuff STILL isn't filed away and everything is STILL sitting all over the dining room table just waiting to find it's new home! And the floor, and the counter and the chair, and, you know exactly what I mean, right?
I had a yummy-sounding recipe for Grilled Slow-Cooker ribs and I bought some ribs at the store on Saturday to put in for a Sunday meal and, it's now Monday morning, and I just put them back in the slow cooker to finish cooking so I can grill them tonight for supper.
I'm up at 5:30 in the morning, hoping to finish up my class work from last week before the new module comes out this morning and I still haven't cracked the book, so to speak, because my stomach is kind of growly, SparkPeople was calling me and the doggy wanted out. Just a quick little Sparktime and I will most definitely get at least one room pulled together today.
I'm hoping to get back to bed at some point today while Kyle is at school and get a little nap in because I have a messed up schedule this week. I will only be getting Wednesday night off before starting back to work on Thursday this week. The other night pharmacist wanted to go to a concert in Kansas City on Thursday so I'm working his Thursday night and he'll work for me on next Tuesday night. That means I'll be working for 7 10-hour shifts over the next 8 days (nights). Yuckity-yuk-yuk-yuk!!!
And to top it off, Kyle is having his Senior pictures taken on Sunday afternoon at 4pm. We have to figure out exactly what he wants done and what he wants to wear so I'm not trying at the last minute to get it done on Sunday instead of sleeping. I know, boys are easier than girls, generally, but he's a little picky about the clothes he wears so I don't want to make all the decisions for him.
I don't expect to get much sparkin' done, other than logging my eats, drinks and exercising, but who really knows when the urge will hit.
I plan to get in my exercise each day and I'm scheduled to run 12.5 miles on Friday for my half-marathon training. We'll just see about that as the time gets closer.
I got myself a new, replacement pair of running shoes on Friday. I wanted to replace my old Asics Kayano 20's with an exact replica but Scheel's was out of my size in all of the colors so I moved up to the Asics Kayano 21's - nice, bright white, pink and teal! I nearly glow as I'm running! The 20's were on sale there for $119 and I had to pay a full $160 (ouch) and I ended up finding the 20's in my size at Shoe Carnival but they were basically $160 so I upgraded for the same price as I would have paid for a replacement.
I'm also getting some new insoles made to replace my worn out pair. My next Chiropractic appointment is October 2nd and I stopped in to be sure they'd have a set for me when I got there. I wanted to have a more custom pair made, with cork and everything, but they were going to be $250 so I think I'll put that off for a little bit longer.
