Getting Back To It

Monday, March 26, 2012

First, just wanted to say thank you to everyone who left me "feel better" notes, y'all made me feel better and I am grateful for such sweet followers! On that note, I am feeling much better! I am slowly getting back to responding to everyone one of y'all !

Friday, I went to Target after a long day of work. I had been tracking a bicycle for a few days that I wanted, so we picked it up on Friday! She's a beauty! That night, I took a much needed 2 hour nap and then headed to a little concert with some friends. I told myself that I was going no matter what, so I did, and I actually felt fine too. So it was a win-win !

Saturday, let's just say, I didn't do too much. I engulfed myself in The Hunger Games and read and finished the book in 7 hours! It was amazing. I had a deadline though. I bought the tickets for that night's showing so it would force me to finish, and I did, with an hour to spare! I was so so pleased with the book and the movie! Needless to say, I've already ordered Catching Fire, and am excited to start reading it! The Hunger Games, left me on a cliff hanger, so I am anxious to know what is going on now.

Sunday, it was a day of relaxation for sure! Joel has an exam on this coming Friday and he had been studying so hard last week that I literally saw him for about an hour every night. Tough, but I kept myself busy. He studied until late Saturday and through Sunday morning. He took one look at me on Sunday morning and said, "I'm not studying anymore today." You can imagine the excitement I felt when he said that. We had such fun and relaxing day accompanied by an interesting bike ride.
So, Joel has a road bike, and I have my new little cruiser. So naturally he was going so much faster than me. But, really I could not believe how out of shape I was. I was so embarrassed that I was struggling so hard. I did not understand because we had just biked through Charleston two weeks prior and even biked the Charleston harbor bridge, which was intense. We get back home, and I look at Joel and say, something is wrong. I know I am not that out of shape. He scoped the bike out and didn't see anything. I got back on, and his eyes went right to the tires. All of the sudden, I hear "Oh No! You didn't have any air in your tires." I nearly died when he said that. So, I had been basically carrying my own weight for 3.7 miles that we biked. I was relieved to know, but seriously could not believe that actually happened! We came back and enjoyed the rest of the daylight on out patio. Even Rayne decided to join!

After that, it was Law & Order SVU and grilled hamburgers to complete the night!

I hope everyone had such a lovely weekend!

& Don't forget about Time Travel Tuesday Tomorrow! The theme is: Where you were last year this time (or your own creative idea if you wish, just have fun)!
