Happy Tuesday, friends! I had a long weekend due to Martin Luther King Jr day, so today is my first day at work this week, and it’s been a bit of a slow start. Let’s delay the inevitable a few moments longer with a look back at my long weekend.
Friday evening I went to my first-ever actual Crossfit class, and it went great! I’ll go more in depth on Wednesday, but for now I’ll say, I’m planning to stick with it for a while! After CF, I had a three hour dance rehearsal for 9 to 5. Thankfully, my endorphins were running hot after a great workout, so I felt amazing and awake all evening. I went straight home after rehearsal, had a beer with Ben and my in-laws, and went to bed.
Saturday was a great, lazy day, because I knew I also had Monday to give me some extra time for all my usual weekend chores. I spent the morning tidying up our room a bit, and then spent most of the afternoon playing Fallout 3. #cantstopwontstop. In the evening, we got spiffed up for a party in town, but first, we stopped by Grammy’s room at Sterling House to drop off a belated Christmas present and chat for a few minutes.
The annual January Thaw party hosted by my friends Freda and Michael was a blast. Lots of my favorite people, way too much food, and a few too many servings of vodka for me made for a very good time. Ben was my gallant DD, who also forced me to chug water and take an Advil before I went to bed.
Sunday started off a bit rough for me. I drank a bunch of water and took some more ibuprofen, which started to even things out a bit, but then my father in law made a magnificent feast of steak, eggs, and fried potatoes and I was well on my way to recovery.
On the way in for rehearsal, I bought a large coffee, some Polar seltzer, and some beef jerky, and that was the final piece of the hangover cure; after that I felt totally fine, and had a great time dancing my butt off at rehearsal.
I was SUPER productive on Monday. After breakfast I did laundry, loaded my new musical soundtracks from Christmas into my iTunes library, meal prepped all my lunches and dinners for the week, and cleaned the bathroom. After lunch, I decided I was done with productivity and played Fallout 3 for about an hour and a half, and then it was time to get myself together for CrossFit and rehearsal.
After a quick wash, some clean clothes, and gathering up all my stuff, I headed into town for my second CF class, which was just as good as my first, and left me full of energy. Rehearsal was a quick one; I was in and out in an hour, which meant that I got to come home, have an actual dinner, finish this blog post, and read before bed. Woot!
I’m realizing that I really should start taking more picture to accompany these posts, otherwise it’s just a whole lotta words. I’m just not very good about thinking in the moment “Oh, hey, I should take a picture for the blog!” And half the time when I DO think of it, I’m too embarrassed to whip out my phone to take a picture “for my blog.” Ah well. I’ll figure it out.
Did you have a long weekend? What did you do with your “extra” day?
