Busy Weekend.

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Wow, I could write a novella on the last 3 days. So I will summarize the best I can.

Friday was my cousin’s wedding. I had the day off work. I planned on getting up on time, having a run and then an easy day before leaving for Dupage county. I over slept by 2 hours, first time in 6 years Gypsy hasn’t woke me up at 6 am. GRR. But I still got my run in, combined with a dog walk instead of separately. It worked out. We wanted to leave the house by 2:30 (ceremony was at 4:30), so we would have “time to visit”. HA!! We missed the ceremony by almost 35 minutes. It took over 3 hours to get there. Really sucked but I wasn’t going to get upset. I got to visit with my aunt from Colorado for about an hour. I did well at dinner, but I was way over calorie due to 7 n 7’s. I did spend nearly 3 hours on the dance floor. That was great.

Saturday, the girls had me up at 5:30 (great job girls!!!). We went for another run. Not exactly what you’re supposed to do after a night of drinking but it wasn’t too bad. We all went out to breakfast and then over to my aunts. Dad’s wife didn’t show until it was almost time to leave. I only had to put up with her dirty looks for about 45 minutes. It was nice visiting with family I haven’t seen in years. They usually have vegetarian food but not this time. I ate way too much mashed potatoes. So home to another dog walk and bed.

I was up early this am but just couldn’t get my rump out of bed. I just laid there playing with and petting the dogs. I haven’t done much all day today. Did try my first Leslie Sampson video. Never thought I would get that sweaty just “walking”. I may have to try a few more. We’ll see how the hip feels. For now, I need to get past the munchies and walk the girls.

Warm Wags all!

    WOW sounds like a busy weekend! What Leslie Sansone DVD are you doing? I love her. One of my favorites are "you can do Pilates". Her walking videos are awesome!

    How funny - that's how my little boy is too. The more I want a "sleep in day" the earlier he wakes me up, but when I need to get up early he sleeps in. My dogs don't really care. My old guy stays in until we force him to go out side, and the other one is happy to hang out until one of us shows signs of waking up and then she wants out right away..

    I'm sorry you missed the ceremony, but you had no way of knowing traffic would be that bad or you would've left way earlier. I'm just glad you also missed most of the stressful company the next day.

    Ha! The girls didn't get you up early the day you wanted to and got you up early the next day instead. The day after drinking and all at a wedding. lol Isn't that the way life works!

    Sorry you missed the ceremony. At least you got to see relatives and visit with your aunt from Colorado, my favorite state emoticon emoticon . Hmm, can't imagine why that would be?! emoticon Even though you were over calories because of the 7 n 7's at least you danced some of it off on the dance floor.

    You didn't say anything about drama. Does that mean the drama llama stayed away?

    As for your dad's wife, you should just give her the sweetest smile when she gives you the evil eye. That'll just make her even more witchy though, so that might not be a good idea. emoticon

    I do lots of Leslie Sansone videos. I know what you mean about getting sweaty just walking in the living room. There are many of her videos on YouTube and a couple of them are walk / jog interval videos. I also like the 5 mile walk one that I found on YouTube because it has a little bit of strength training in it and one mile of walk / jog intervals.

    I've been walking in my living room for a few weeks now............I get so sweaty too! And sore the next day!! It is really odd that just walking in the living room could do that. I am sadly out of shape, but still, it's pretty cool in a way. No excuses to not be able to show up to your living room!!! Keep it up girl, you are amazing, as always.

    That's too bad that you missed the ceremony, but at least you had fun @ the reception.

    As for the evil eye from step-mom . . . I wouldn't even pay attention. But sounds like you made the best of things anyway.

    Sorry you missed the ceremony, but you got to see relatives, and get in good exercise with the dancing. I think your girls know when you need rest, and they let you sleep. Good girls !!

    Enjoy your restful day.
