2 week catch up

I know I missed last Sunday’s catch up. I kinda forgot it was Sunday until Monday morning. Then I had every intention of coming on here in the week to recap last week and I goto my exercise in and was feeling myself! But last week turned out to be a hectic one.

First things first, I was scheduled to work every weekday at the PT job. It was overwhelming to see. Every Monday for the past 3 or 4 weeks, I have been scheduled to work only to walk in and be told I could go home. Imagine my surprise when I walked in this past Monday to crickets. They were still feeling out if it was slow enough to send people home. 40 minutes in, I was given the A-Okay to go.

Since the rest of my week was looking very busy, I used the new found free time to get a long overdue pedicure. I dragged my sister along to catch up with her. She was less that enthusiastic and refused to get her feet done. She did keep me company so there’s that.

Tuesday’s walk into the PT job was greeted a head shake from one of the team leads. That was my go ahead to leave, which I didn’t even hesitate to do. I left to go get my eyebrows done then had dinner with a friend as I figured that would be the last free evening I would have for the rest of the week. I was right.

I worked the remaining shifts for the week. I was very surprised that I was not on the schedule for today as this is one of my 3 mandatory shifts. Next week I am only scheduled for Monday to Wednesday. Another weekend off! Not sure what to do with myself. I want to go away, but then I take a look around my home and realize I have neglected a few things and I should be responsible.

We shall see. Right now I am most likely going to Portland, Oregon so I should probably be responsible.

Last night, my Uncle had a party for his 65th birthday. It was a great evening even though the venue was beyond far and we ran into traffic on the way home.

It’s been a rather lazy day. Took my girls to Eva’s for ice cream. I had the Raspberry Cheesecake something and it was delicious. Sweet Jesus is next on my list to try. I will travel for food. 🙂

Looking forward to the weekend

I am trying to get back to normal. For some reason this last road trip wore me out more than usual. I left early on Friday morning and until I got to MD. There was an accident that slowed traffic to a crawl. But all in all a good drive down. We managed to find a prom dress for Princess at Target of all places AND on clearance. It was just her size. Less than $40 US, yes please!

In the course of 3 days I had my favourite flavour of ice cream three times. 🙂 It was almost 4 but somehow having ice cream at 7 am on Sunday didn’t seem like a great idea.

The service for my cousin was great. It ran long but that was not surprising since there were a lot of people on the program to speak about how wonderful she was.

My Mom met us down there and I drove her back. It was a long drive back as we stopped like we usually do but she went one way and the kids went another. It was like corralling cats at times. LOL

I was hoping to get back home by 7pm but too many long stops and leaving 1+ hour later than I planned made for a long day. But by 10 I was happily on the couch.

I am really looking forward to the upcoming 3 day weekend. I so want to sleep in and spend the day lazing around.

On a side note, traveling over the weekend interrupts my regular workout schedule but I did manage to get a quick walk in on Friday with my Aunt while we waited for dinner to cool. I am back on the wagon with 2 workouts done this week, right on course.
