Goodness! I certainly didn’t plan to abandon you and the ole blog for the majority of the week. Life got hectic, and when I finally sat down, I just didn’t feel like I could effectively write a good post. But hey, life happens, right? (And…I had after school bus duty this week which means I was on duty until at least 4pm everyday. Definitely not fun, but I’m thankful I don’t have it every week!)
I want to begin by saying THANK YOU so much for all your encouraging words and support on Tuesday’s post. Seems that lots of you hate many of the same things I do. Isn’t it nice to know we aren’t alone?!
Anyway, no Five Things Friday today, but I do want to catch you up on my week quickly:
Wednesday – After work I drove to Birmingham (an hour + from where we live) for my bi-weekly appointments with my therapist, followed by my nutrition appointment. Both went well, so I was pleased! On my way back home, I popped off the interstate to meet my mom to finally pick up our wedding album! 3 years later… Oops!
I am beyond in love with how it turned out! Here are a few peeks inside the album.
We DID get married in our church. But apparently I didn’t think the actual ceremony pics were too important. Our reception was held at my parents home; they live on about 20 acres. I also got ready and did “before” pictures with bridesmaids and family there, before going to the church for more pictures.
I made it home Wednesday night around 8pm, just in time for a super late dinner. John had a tennis match Wednesday night, so he didn’t end up getting home until late either. After catching up for a bit, we crashed into bed.
Thursday – after I made it home from work on Thursday, I did a couple rounds of Gina’s super quick workout before heading back out to meet John.
We are part of a supper club through our church and the first dinner was last night. It’s a neat concept – after signing up for supper clubs, a committee then randomly drew names (singles or couples) and assembled groups of about 8 people. The groups are made of couples/people from all different age groups and walks of life. In our group there is an older couple around 70, another couple about 50, a third couple who is only a few years older than John and me, and a single woman – who is a hoot! The oldest couple generously offered to host last night’s dinner. We had a lot of fun, and really enjoyed getting to know new people!
The sweet woman who hosted made all parts of the dinner herself. I expect that in the future, it will be more of a pot-luck type thing. Anyway, she prepared a reuben casserole, salad with strawberries and orange slices, topped with a raspberry vinaigrette, and rolls. Unfortunately, I wasn’t a big fan of the reuben casserole (a take off of a reuben sandwich), however the salad was delicious!
We stayed late chatting and getting to know each other better. By the time we made it home around 10pm, it was all I could do to pack my lunch for today and iron my clothes before I fell into bed.
Plans for Friday night include watching TV on the couch and an early bed time. Party animals, I know.
I’m not too sure what we’ll get into this weekend. My brother is playing in a basketball tournament in town on Saturday, so I’m sure we’ll swing by the gym, and our yard desperately needs some attention too! Besides that and watching some March Madness basketball, I’m excited to get some down time in. I feel like I’ve been racing around from the time my eyes open until they close. Whew!
So, that’s what I’ve been up to the past few days. Catch me up on YOU!
