It's been a busy day - I'm surprised I've managed to get in a workout at all! We spent 45 minutes moving furniture between 2 apartments and then organizing it in our own. The furniture is all in place and Daisha's room is put back together. I can't say the same about ours... that's my goal for tomorrow. I have to say that it's been so long that we've been sleeping in a full-size bed... I'm not going to know what to do in a queen!?! I'm actually waiting to see how long it takes before Keiran crawls in with us trying to kick us both off the sides.
The moving was definitely a great cardio workout. And I just finished doing some strength training. It wasn't as much as I'd hoped for but after moving solid oak bedroom furniture, my muscles could only take so much. It was still enough to earn 22 more gems for the BLC weekend challenge. I may try to do a WatP video through the last half of Castle before getting cleaned up and ready for bed.
Our Halloween patio decorating is finally almost done. Tony started just before the end of September and has been tweaking his "Haunted Cafe" ever since. I'm going to take pics the night of the contest judging that our apartment complex does - that's on the 26th. I'll try to post pics between then and Halloween. My camera is going to get a good workout the next couple of weeks so I'll have lots of photos to share. Here's what the schedule is looking like:
19th - Baby-sitting and Girl Scouts
21st - The Big Race at Daisha's school and their Fall Festival, followed by Wedding Rehearsal (with a 1-hr drive each way)
22nd - Wedding all day
23rd - Birthday Party for a friend's daughter
24th - Baby-sitting
25th - Helping my landlord with some prep for the weekend
26th - Baby-sitting; Patio Contest Judging (extra work to prep the patio before sundown)
27th - Helping my landlord with some prep for the weekend
28th - Carpet Cleaners coming; Book Character Parade and "Special Snack" day at Daisha's school
29th - Apartment complex yard sale, blood drive, and Fall Festival with Costume Contest
31st - Halloween - school and trick-or-treating
Needless to say it's going to be crazy over the next several days. I'm getting myself psyched up now so I don't give up before it's all over. I will keep moving and squeezing my workouts in whenever and wherever I can for sure!!!
