Back by popular demand…..Sandy’sWEEKEND UPDATE
What a great weekend….for the most part. Friday I dealt with a massive migraine so by the time I got home from job number 2 and went for my hour-long run in 40-friggin’-degree heat I was ready to do whatever it took to get the thumping to stop. However, it was such a gorgeous Friday night I was eager to get out and do something….I was looking forward to sitting outside and having a glass of wine but eventually I decided against it and downed the last of my Advil and bummed around my house for the rest of the night.
Saturday morning I was up early for a run before heading to the City with Blair and Abby to see Emma. We stopped to get Emma sneakers for her grading present (aw, those were the days, eh?) and I FINALLY got new sneakers. I’ve been needing them. I’ve been using the same Nikes since 1999. Blair says I should have had new sneaks YEARS ago. Here’s hoping the new ones will reduce the knee pain.
We took the girls to Atlantic Playland which is pretty lame but I think the girls liked it..and we all had a good time. Once home and cleaned up from the hot hot hot day I headed over to give my brother his bday present, hug and kiss the boys and then stopped in to Serina (Blair’s Westville High schoolmate)’s with Kim MacEwan (Tom’s wifey, my co-worker) for some wine and girl talk (lots of chatter about boobs, boys and work). It was a nice little night.
Sunday I was up early for a run, to clean, into New Minas to get a new mop b/c mine was old and moldy (scrubbing bathroom floor on hands and knees in oven-like weather = NOT FUN!). Back home to finish cleaning and getting ready for Jaime (Steve’s fiance)’s wedding shower. Power goes off…dammit! Finish getting ready regardless. Head into Wolfville to buy these gorgeous black martini glasses I’ve had my eyes on. Love them. Go to shower…have some food, some fun, win a prize….back home and happy that I have power again. Whoot. Clean some more….going to relax for the evening, although I will probably run again since my run this morning seemed half-assed. Gonna watch Big Brother, read and looking forward to some sleep. I wish the weekends were longer…Much, much longer.
