In The Air I'm Sensing a Change in the Weather

My girl crush's dancing shoes, retired for the night.

Sooo, the rest of this weekend. What about it? Well, it was a lot of things. A lot of good things, a lot of mellow things and then some confusing things that I'm still trying to sort out.

I forgot to tell you on the Friday post, that I never got to hook up with the karaoke machine. Which is okay. I had enough fun without it.

On Saturday, I got the girls to work and back. Of course, I wasn't working on much sleep, but I soldiered on. My sister called to tell me that she and her family were on there way to see us, and we all went out for lunch. I got my three year old niece to tell me several times to quit copying her. So, I figured my little kid harassment duties were completed for one day.

By Saturday evening, I was exhausted. I finally took a nap by around 7 and didn't wake up until around 10. I got some texts from friends about fun things happening out and about town, but I was in for the night.

I watched a DVD of Tropic Thunder. I think it was one of those movies where I heard too much hype, but I wasn't all that impressed. The beginning was pretty funny and Tom Cruise was really great, but I didn't love it.

I stayed up too late talking on the phone, so I got a late start on Sunday. I took the girls to the mall and then came back home to go running. It's harder to get out there and run when it's cold out, but once I do, I feel a million times better. There's something about defying the elements in the Winter and getting regular exercise, that helps my mood like nothing else. I started out so pissy, and thinking of excuses to run my shorter route, but by the time I hit the two or three mile mark and my iPod played Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure", followed by The Hollies "Bus Stop", Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" Tom Petty's "I Need to Know" and Vampire Weekend's "A-Punk", I was ready to run for hours.

When I got home, I had a voice mail message from my friend K. They were all at my friend J.'s house watching the Steelers play. It was great. There were wings and enchiladas and this vanilla pudding with bananas and nilla wafer dessert dish. Mmmmm. Best of all, the Steelers won again.

I guess now, I should go get ready for work tomorrow. Let's relive our fun weekends in the comments as a way to get through Monday. 'Kay?

Exercising in the cold is exhilerating!

Nothing like an evening nap to set you up for too much late night talking on the phone, right?
I'm glad you had a good weekend :-)

I love tormenting my nephews. Revenge for 34+ years of torment my brothers were more than happy to give me. Muah ha ha.

When I get home tonight I'm going to watch "Blades of Glory". It's a very stupid movie, but it's calling to me right about now.

we had fun visiting you although I am afraid my poor sweet children will require years of therapy to deal with the trauma of being teased my their aunt and cousins. We had fun shopping at the mall Sat. night and bought some new clothes for the children. They love playing in the play area. Sunday was Tom's dad's family reunion. Have a good week.

My weekend was pretty good...I went to a "Pure Romance" party, and let's just say I made a couple of interesting purchases and even won a prize!

I also watched "Get Smart," I have never laughed so hard...okay may at "Super Bad..." and perhaps...oh okay, but you get the point!

What fun weekend? Oh, I guess it wasn't so bad. I got to do the tour of consignment stores, replacing stuff or at least looking for replacement stuff. Naturally, one could NOT pass up a beeooooteous embroidered cashmere shawl for $12.00!!!! I love rich people and what they give away.

It is. Sometimes it's just getting out to do it that can be a challenge.


Definitely another time.


I know. Or to mess you up on Sunday.


It's all about karma and I believe karma can extend through generations.


Yeah. Let's talk about why my girls may need therapy (cough - you and your husband talking about your honeymoon - cough). MAybe we should just call it even, shall we?


Sounds like you had a great weekend and some you got some new fun toys.

Booda Baby,

Were your plans ruined by the fires?
