Happy Monday, Friends!
I’m not really sure that the words ‘happy’ and ‘Monday’ really go together. I’m always SO crabby on Mondays. I really hate being a Debbie Downer and act all dramatic about the weekend being over and moping around because I have to be back at work, but I just can’t help it. Sometimes I like to be dramatic and act like my life is over and Mondays seem to be like the perfect day to do that!
Friday night, I got out of work late because someone needed an insurance policy at 4:55pm. Really? You couldn’t have called earlier in the day? I don’t know about you, but the minute that I’m supposed to be done working is the minute that I want to be in my car heading home. Anyway, I wrote the policy and hurridly called it a day and flew home. As I was getting out of my car, Jet came flying over from the neighbors house to greet me. He and Lee were over there because our neighbor was having a cookout/bonfire and Lee was grabbing a quick dinner before he had to go to work that night. I walked over and we all enjoyed a quick dinner together before Lee had to leave. Soon after he left, Jet and I hopped in the car and went to visit my parents. I stayed there for a couple of hours before coming home and crashing!
I woke up bright and early to meet my friend, Bridget, because we had plans to run a 5K. She had asked me earlier in the week if I wanted to run it and I didn’t have any plans, so I told her to count me in! I haven’t run a race since my Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, so I was excited to get back out there! I’ll be back later with a full recap of the race because it deserves it’s own post. I can honestly say that it as best and the worst race of my life!
After our race, Bridget and I grabbed lunch and headed home. As I pulled in my driveway, I was faced with the realization that I was going to have to cut the grass. I normally have absolutely no problem doing yardwork. In fact, I like it. However, dandelions are currently taking over my yard and I feel like by the time I reach the bottom of my yard, they are already popping back up at the top where I already mowed!
I didn’t even change out of my race clothes…I just changed into my grass-cutting shoes and got to it! The sooner I started, the sooner I would be finished! My neighbors frequently comment on how fast I cut my grass. I practically run with the mower. It’s fine. I’m the ‘crazy one’ in the neighborhood and I have accepted my title.
I had a supervisor watching me so I had to make sure I did a good job…
After the lawn was done, I took a break so I could hang out with Lee before he had to leave for work again. 8pm – 4am is the worst.shift.ever. When he left, I decided that I was going to tackle the door in my kitchen that desperately needed painted. If you remember, it was one of my goals for May…and I’m proud of myself for starting it!
The old door…
The new door needs a couple more coats of paint and then I’ll share it with you! I’m painting it white and when I had the first coat on, it looked like it was white-washed and looked like a scary door with the old doorknob that you would find in a haunted house. I called my mom, slightly freaking out, saying that my door looked like it belonged in a horror movie! She told me to calm down, be reasonable, and, obviously, put more coats of paint on it. I did what she said and all is well.
I need to chill out.
Sunday, I really didn’t do much of anything. I did some weeding, grilled out with Lee (before he had to go to work, of course), took Jet for a walk, and just relaxed. I was non-stop on Saturday, so it was nice to just stop and enjoy the sunny day to the fullest!
I hope you guys had a great weekend! I’ll be back later with a full recap of my race!
Was your weekend busy or did you relax?
Anyone run any races this weekend?
