It was the first weekend in a while that we had that was calm & we didn't have much going on... a good thing really. Much needed. Poor Ricky had to work on Saturday but after that, it was a "we're not leaving the house unless it burns down" kinda thing...
but here's some highlights of the weekend
.... Got to talk to my sweet friend Friday on the phone. I called to just check on her after the loss of her dad... &we ended up talking for a little over 2 hours. Oops. I just love talking to her, catching up, laughing, crying, & hearing her advice that Ricky & I both value so dearly.
|This is totally going to be us in a few years!!!
... When Ricky works, I usually get up with him & am then angry I'm up so early on a Saturday. Not this day. I totally didn't even hear him leave. I woke up at 8:00 surrounded by the dogs snoring away. Sorry honey I didn't see you off, but it felt wonderful to sleep in.
... I had intentions of getting my house cleaned up while the hubs was working. I nixed that idea & instead made a cup of caramel coffee & started my next book. Sounds like a MUCH better plan then cleaning.
... I did manage to get in my 10K training mile before Ricky got home. Building up the miles. I haven't gotten in anything over a 5k since, well, I can't even remember when. With my knee & my back, I'm taking things so slow, its ridiculous. But I'm still enjoying just moving & getting miles in. Even if it takes me longer then most.
... Thank you Netflix for making 4.25 miles go back quickly. Distraction is great.
... That whole "not leaving the house" thing I mentioned? Ricky had it planned. He brought home some pizzas on his way home from work so lunch & dinner was covered. Those miles I ran helped the guilt of eating a day of pizza too.
... Ricky & I had a Arrow marathon. We were about 5 episodes behind & got all caught up. I just love that show. Ricky loves The Flash better... not me. Give me Oliver Queen any day.
... Ricky finally got a morning to rest so we missed church service. I was glad he got the chance to relax a bit. We did make it for Merge (Youth service). I'm glad we did because we had a great crowd with 3 new visitors... & 2 of the other leaders were missing... & we had our Merge After Church (MAC) so I'm glad Ricky & I were there to help. Plus, its just fun to hang out with these amazing kids. They are up for anything... & they play HARD! I always say if someone isn't bleeding, throwing up, or out of breath, then its not a good youth game.
... Ricky & I went down for our weekly Sunday Target stop & ran into our friends at 5 Guys. I love when that happens. An unexpected lunch date.
... Ricky spent $90 at Target & he's still not even sure what he bought. He basically had 2 small bags. How does stuff add up so quickly?
... I thought about cleaning when we got home but I decided to pull out my knitting & finish up a scarf/cowl thing I had been working on. A much better use of my time.
... So excited Once Upon a Time is back on!!!!!
... Had to delay The Walking Dead for the Downton finale. Oh my gosh. I seriously was squealing in delight & clapping... (I won't spoil anything if you haven't seen it yet)... but Ricky came running from the other room thinking I was crying because I was upset about something. No... that's the sound of happiness. Now we probably have to wait another year for the next season. Sigh.
... I never did around to cleaning my house. Dang it.
How was your weekend?
