OF COURSE it’s going to be rainy today; I’m already feeling blah. I shouldn’t; I finally vented my irrational irritations last night but I still feel annoyed. My birthday is Friday and things aren’t as perfect as they’d seemed. At first, everyone could come. Then one by one, they have other plans. So be it. But I just feel kind of sad about it. But eh, I’ll get a burger and beer and have a damn good time regardless.
So, my weekend: Ash and I saw The Gunman after a hibachi lunch and it was just ok – the movie, not the food. The food was amazing. Funny thing though: I have been keeping track of my calories for the past two weeks and the app (Loseit!) set my daily intake at 1572 if I want to lose 15 pounds (not taking into account exercise). So on a a daily basis, I’ve been coming in under that goal by at least 100 if not 200 calories. SO, I can’t eat as much anymore. I know it’s a good thing but it’s also interesting to see those changes. I feel so much better and I have not been falling asleep on the couch early. Speaking of, Elliot and I run a 5k (feels lame to say, considering I’ve done halfs) on Saturday and we have to really buckle down this week and eat right and get in some good runs. Hopefully it won’t be raining this afternoon.
OH, so after we got home on Friday, my parents arrived with my oldest son, who had been with them the whole week. It was nice to get him back but man, he was in a FUNK. Saturday, he and I ran and then we went out to lunch before my parents got on the road; my mom had to work on Sunday. The weekend seemed to drag on and on. I took the kids to run errands while Ash was in a Magic tournament all afternoon. The next morning, he had to run 15 miles so again, it was me and those creatures. It was fine, of course. I cleaned and they played and then we ran a few errands. We had burgers for lunch (yay! Ash never wants to eat them anymore) and then everyone took naps, which was glorious.
I’m back to work today but so is Elliot; these stupid teacher workday after a break things kill. But every working parent is in the same boat so I’ll shut up about it.
Love me a freebie week!
Let’s start off with some Ozzy because, why not?
And a beachy song because that’s on my brain.
