Then can someone tell me why this morning, our grass is covered with snow & big ole flakes were coming down last night? I honestly was in shock when I looked out the window last night & it basically looked like a blizzard. GO AWAY WINTER!!!!!
Anyways.... at least we were snow free over the weekend.
Friday, I started off my weekend the way I like it - with Starbucks Mobile Order & Kroger Click List. Give me all the fast in & out of things where I have minimal dealings with the crowds.... yep, still steering clear of people while the flu is STILL going around. (Are we at the end of that madness yet? Please Lord!!!)
Ricky was at home watching the UK Basketball game - which was my cue to take my time to get home.... if you're new here, you have to know that I am not allowed anywhere near UK basketball because apparently I am a total jinx so even at big games, Ricky will even kindly ask me to leave the house because apparently my presence to his TV is bad for UK. Hey, if it gives me a reason to walk around Target by myself or a bookstore alone, I'm all for it.
All that to say, he was watching the game - so I picked up some dinner for us because this girl 99.9% of the time doesnt cook on Friday.
Luckily, UK won so Ricky was in a good mood (WHEW) & we ended up spending the evening talking about finally cutting that cable cord.
We signed up for Direct TV Now & giving that a try. It's only $10.00 for the next 3 months (10 each month) & we figured we'd see what it offers & how it feels without cable. So far, its been OK. I will say, I dont like I can't get NBC live on there - but honestly, the only thing I watch on NBC is This is Us & we only have one more episode for the season... & when it comes back, I'll live with watching it the next day (I guess I'll live) but it gives me ABC live so that covered my fear of missing Dancing with the Stars when its on. That's a deal breaker for me..... needless to say, we had some debate on which to try - I wanted Hulu Plus - he wanted Direct TV - but its like we both came to the conclusion - nothing is in stone. We can try out whatever we want & go back to what works best for both of us. At least we wont be paying these horrible cable bills. Mercy, they are ridiculous.
Saturday, I had to go to the bank & while I was out, I ran down to the library to pick up some books I had on hold. I didnt even know how easy it was to put books on hold & run in & pick them up. Just add this to my list of new favorites -with Starbucks Mobile Ordering & Kroger Click List.
I then ran into Target for a quick trip to get my coffee creamer & then ran over to Starbucks to grab some caffeine because I had intentions to get some miles under my feet.
I'm starting a new Jeff Galloway program today. Runners know who that is. He's all about a run - walk-run idea of moving. I'm excited to try his plan out (I got his book at the library - holla)
I'm so glad the sunshine came out for my 2.5 mile trek.... it was chilly otherwise.
& it was funny because I saw a lady walking her dog while I was out & the dog was moving along - so happy, pulling his momma to hurry up - & I looked & saw - he had 3 LEGS!!! & man oh man, it didnt slow him down one bit. That little dog needs to be all of us - all the excitement, nothing slowing him down.
I left from there & ran over to my parents for a bit & then headed home to read my library books.
|They had a big Saturday too & was exhausted while I knitted|
Sunday, time change.... God help me. This time change - I love with the light more in the evening, but it really takes me a good week to adjust to the 1 hour loss. I dont know why - I miss an hour of sleep all the time - but there has to be something in the air on this because it's like it effects my whole body. Send me good vibes to survive the week.
But I ran into Panera to pick up some bagels for our Joy group & then headed to MSM for our time together where we talked about our talents that God gives each & every one of us. I loved the idea they talked about that Jesus LOVES what you like. That sport or hobby, that thing you like to do so much? God loves it... & He can use you in it. Such a perfect message for middle school kids.
I then booked it over to our Joy group & it was just a perfect balm to the soul. This was a week of study that it just didnt feel like it was reaching me - but the conversation about it & the insight others got since our last meeting, it was just so inspiring in our conversations & words & encouragement of one another. It was wonderful. We ended up running an hour & a half longer than we should - but I think it was just what everyone of us needed.
I picked up some dinner for Ricky & headed home & had to give Bruno a bath & then before you know it, that snow I was talking about came in & it was time to get ready for another week... minus an hour of sleep.
How was your weekend?
Did you get more snow?
Does the time change effect you?
