Birthday weekend was a bit disappointing. My dad didn’t really care to be in town, Dan was home for only 24 hours, dinner atmosphere wasn’t great, my parents argued all weekend, blah blah blah. I didn’t feel like I really got a weekend. In fact, I almost took a sick day today for myself. I never do that, but it sure was tempting.
I did enjoy some two yoga classes (2 new ones!) and two Galloway runs over the weekend. As much as I want to run though, I am wondering if Galloway may be still harming my adrenals. I don’t want to further my burnout.
Speaking of burning. Some kids in a hot-rod started an oil fire in the parking lot of Cavendar’s yesterday. I was lucky enough to be parked right next to them. So my car ended up being covered in fire extinguisher chemicals. I needed to wash it anyhow, but I wasn’t planning on running it to the carwash immediately to get all of the chemical crap off of my car! I guess at least my car didn’t catch on fire.
I didn’t find boots at Cavendar’s, but I didn’t find ones I finally loved at Shepler’s. Only $400 with a 25% off coupon. Even with birthday money, I can’t bring myself to buy them. I already have grief spending $140 on running shoes.
Sunday night I threw split chicken breasts on the grill and turned around to take the pan inside and get a clean one. In that amount of time the skin/fat flamed on the grill and charred the heck out of the outside of the chicken. I finished the chicken in the stove, but I was SO mad. All of my seasonings were burned off. The chicken was still good, but not as good as it would have been. Bummer. Plus then I had to peel all of the char off of all of the chicken. I never do that, so mad at myself.
What wasn’t disappointing is that my “nephew” was born on Saturday morning! I talked to my BFF on the phone Friday night, they sent her to the hospital. I talked to her again Saturday morning around 10. 80 minutes later I got a text message with a photo from her husband that he was here! I couldn’t believe it! When I talked to her last, she was saying she was going to take a nap and chill. Pretty sure that never happened, lol! I want to post pics, but didn’t clear that with momma yet I don’t want to be disrespectful and post pics of him everywhere if she doesn’t like that.
I am dying to meet him. I wish I didn’t have commitments all week and through the weekend I am hoping Saturday afternoon I can get down to San Antonio to spend some time with them! I didn’t want to stress her out with more visitors and chaos than was already happening over the weekend, nor did I want to interrupt them when they first get home. This was REALLY hard for me, especially seeing family and extended family show up at the hospital, but I kept telling myself it was better to wait to see them.
This is going to be the longest week EVER! I cannot wait until Saturday afternoon.
