I always love Boston Marathon day... cheering on the runners from the laziness of my computer while typing away at work. It does make for a better Monday though. It's always so inspiring ... So hello Monday. I'm actually excited for you today.
Plus, it's my step-daughter's birthday. Happy Birthday Julie!
|Since Julie works in a lab all day, I thought this was appropriate for her!|
How was your weekend? Mine was productive - for a change.... GO ME!
Saturday, Ricky had to work & that usually leaves me able to clean the house.
Why is it easier to clean a house when you are the only one in it?
Anyways - instead of cleaning, I decided to go all Tim Taylor from Home Improvement & put together my shelving for my office.
|Actually all I needed was a screw driver...|
I felt like this
I was a little nervous about it when the front page of directions said, "Recommended to be put together with the use of 2 people"... oh snap. But I took on the challenge & BAM! IN YO FACE directions!
After getting the first one done, it was a breeze for the second one.
& I give all the credit to Teem Mom OG for distracting me while doing this.
Ricky said he would turn on the security cameras every now & then from work to see how I was doing - I think he was making sure I didn't have the thing collapse on me & I wasn't dying in the living room.... but he said he would see me putting it together, watching tv, putting it together, me talking to the TV, putting it together, & me standing pacing while watching the TV so intent. I take my OG Teen Mom's seriously
Catelynn & Tyler - I still think you two are the cutest little couple
I felt so accomplished getting these things put together & finally getting my room on a good start.
I now have a check list of other things I need, but at least its on a roll now & I'm excited about how its all going to come together.
It was so beautiful on Saturday, I decided to forego my Les Mills Combat & hit the pavement.
Goodness gracious. I hadn't done the hills on my street in forever & I felt like it was day 1 of ever trying to work out. GASP GASP GASP. My butt needs to start tackling these hills more again. Though my low back would disagree with that. It's always something.
Sunday I was up to teach in Merge Youth... I guess it came together OK. For some reason my mind was just 2 steps ahead of my words & I felt like I was jumping around every where. I had people tell me the lesson was just fine & made perfect sense but I think I had SO much I wanted to talk about but a short time so it just kinda messed me up - at least in my own mind.
As soon as we got out of church, Ricky & I just had a few mintues before I had to head up to meet my sister in law & nieces to see the local middle school's play of Beauty & the Beast.
So dang cute.
I knew 4 of the kids in it & was so proud to see them up there.
One of the kids actually had the role of Cogsworth... & he did it wonderfully!
|Nope - I don't even know who played the Beast but still got a picture with him :)|
Of course, I was sitting in my chair singing along & saying the lines to the play. My niece Sophia just kept grabbing my arm & telling me to SSHHH :) I asked her if I was bothering her & she said, "It doesn't bother me, but it may bother those around us" haha!
I will say though, she was the cutest thing when Belle came out in her yellow dress - she grabbed my arm & hugged me. I looked at her & said, "That looks JUST like me, doesn't it?" ... she just rolled her eyes at me. #crazyaunt
I met up with Ricky after the play, ran to Target to pick up a few things for my room, we had dinner & then it was time to get home & wind up the weekend.
That fast. It goes by that fast.
But I got so much done this weekend. Laundry NOT being one of them. But that's OK - my room came together a bit, I got to enjoy fresh warm Spring air, I got to remind kids about the power of Words in Youth, I got to see my nieces & I got to once again sing along with Beauty & the Beast.
I give this weekend a thumbs up.
What was the best thing about your weekend?
You going to watch the Boston Marathon?
