The Weekend That Was
Monday, September 23, 2013
Happy First Monday of Fall. Here we go!
Friday was a total relaxation evening. I did get a brisk walk in on the walking path at work and then a brisk walk with the labrador after dinner. Enjoyed DH home for the first Friday evening in a long time.
Saturday, I had to mail a card so I decided to run to the post office, a little over 2 miles each way. It was a little windy but that was good practice for the cooler runs to come, especially the 10K I registered for in November along Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. What was I thinking??
Then it was the usual Saturday evening laundry and housework while watching the Chicago Fire Soccer game and texting with my son who was there. Very disappointing game.
Sunday I was up with the birdies to get ready for the Chicago NEDA walk. My daughter was the coordinator this year.
I tried to be quiet getting ready since DH had worked all night. I'm usually very good at navigating in the dark. I pulled out my bathroom stuff and headed to the other bathroom but didn't see the doorway jump in front of me. Face, meet doorframe! Tushy, meet floor.
DH jumped up to see if I was okay as I lay on the floor, still holding my bathroom stuff. I said I thought I was fine, that I was trying to be quiet. He tried not to laugh as he asked how that worked out for me. Yeah, not so much. I'm sure the labrador was thinking "You CANNOT blame me for that, that's all her". She has caused me a few minor injuries over the years.
We had a great day at the walk. I worked the check-in table, talked to a few emotional parents of kids with eating disorders and marveled at how wonderfully my daughter handled everything. She has come such a long way in her recovery. I was just beaming with pride.
After packing everything up and heading home, I walked the dog and then it was time to get ready for the wake of my ex-husband's grandmother. It was really nice to see the family again. Grandma was a wonderful woman. If I could live my life half as as well as she lived hers, I will be happy.
So it was a long and emotional day for sure but it was all good. I could use today off but life awaits, gotta keep up!
Onward with the Monday!
