What is happening? Seriously - does Mother Nature hate us or something?
I know most people have different passions & concerns in life & things that just stir in them. The environment is one of those things for me... that & animals. Pull up my soap box when someone starts discussing these sorts of things. But I'm the person who worries what our lazy ways are doing to our planet & I'm the person that actually gears heart broken when I see trees are all plowed down for yet another Dollar store or Pharmacy or subdivision ... & when people laugh about Global Warming, I'm the person that shakes my head & says Global Warming isn't necessarily about WARMING. It's about the world being all off-kilter.
Here is another good & funny thought about it all in only the way Jimmy Kimmel can talk about it.
Anyways - all of that rant just to say, it was FREAKING COLD this weekend. ... & to please recycle ;)
But like it was REALLLYYYYY cold - pull out my thermal underwear cold ... in May.
|Cause if you're going to wear thermals, make them Disney Princess thermals|
Anyways, it was another rushed weekend full of going & doing & going & doing.
I started it off Friday by stopping at the hospital to sit with my friend for awhile. Bless her heart... she had to fly in from Colorado, just having a C-section 3 weeks before, leaving her husband & daughter at home to come make some decisions about her mother you never want to make. I hated it all so much for her.
I left the hospital & Ricky sent me the text, "Pizza?" so I headed out to pick up some pizza... only to have this happen...
I honestly didn't even hit my brakes hard. It was just a normal stop... but the pizza was sitting on top of my Vera Bradley messenger bag & it just slid off of it like it was an oil slick.
At least it was my pizza & not Ricky's. & it was only half of it that hit the floor. I just consider it calories saved. I actually just laughed about it.
After leaving the hospital with my friend & those sorts of things happening in people's lives, a pizza on the floor of my car is absolutely nothing to think twice about.
Saturday, I basically didn't want to touch the air.
I get it - when its cold & the normal temp is 10 degrees, 40's feels warm... but when we had like an 80 degree day a few days before, 44 degrees feels frigid & miserable. So I stuck to the indoors most of Saturday - taking care of cleaning a bit, laundry, all the stuff you do that makes you feel like an adult. In other words, all the stuff that is no fun.
I did end my day by finally watching McFarland, USA. I've had this on my DVR for months & never really sit down long enough on a Saturday night to get in a movie. I'm too busy trying to catch up on a week's TV shows from my DVR.
... & I totally got teary eyed & was pumping my arms like I was in real life watching this State championship race. It's not like you dont know what's going to happen. They dont make movies over teams that loose. But when they show the real people in the movie at the end & where they are now, it just always hits me in the soft spot.
Plus, it was about running. Always something that makes me sit & cheer.
Sunday, we headed to church & was so happy to see our friend Chasity zoom in right when it started with new baby Caden strapped on the front of her. Since we've started youth & Chasity has had a baby, we've been at difference services. I was so glad to see her & kiss that precious baby's face & to get some hugs from Emerson.
I had so much going on Sunday, it was crazy - like I felt like I was basically all over town - a few times, but had to take the time to stop & hug my friend while they had a memorial service for her mom who ended up passing away on Saturday morning. I told her I so hated to see her under these conditions, but I was so thankful to see her again & especially to meet her new son. I'm also so thankful that she has this new little guy to help her get through this time of loosing her momma. Please pray for my friend Erica. ... Especially because she's traveling today to get home to her husband & daughter. She's one incredibly strong lady.
I had to do even MORE running around on Sunday, but got home in time to work out (on a Sunday -WHAT?), make out my bills & then settled in for more zombie Sunday. I really haven't been into Fearing the Walking Dead until last week. & this week? Total thumbs up. & then heard that next week is already the finale. Well, that's a let down just when its getting good.
|Watch out for this crazy lady!|
So it was a crazy weekend... full of busy... full of emotion... full of life.
How about where you were - was it Spring like or did you get some winter straggling weather?
