Weekend Work

Happy Easter (a little late) blog friends!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I was super excited for a 3-day weekend, even though Jason had to work on Friday.  I scheduled my first training session with my new trainer Friday morning and I also planned on running errands, getting some work done, maybe a pedicure, blah, blah. 

I woke up Friday feeling terrible- sore throat, aches, fever, etc.  Called the trainer to cancel- I'm sure he thinks I am just full of poo and lazy.  I tried to lay in bed and rest, but I was restless and started feeling anxious about our messy house and all of the things that I needed to get done.  I felt guilty for being sick!

Do you ever have one of those days when you feel like your life is out of control?  That was Friday.  I pulled my sick self out of bed and was off to get things done.  I picked up cleaning supplies, office supplies (made me feel better just looking at them), dry cleaners.  I even stopped to get my car inspected. 

I went home cleaned my rugs, hired a carpet cleaner to come the next day, cleaned out my office, and made my life feel more in order.  Mission accomplished!  Jason even joined in and got his car inspected on the way home and made dinner. 

Saturday our plan was YARDWORK!  We were actually looking forward to this all week.  We wanted to be able to enjoy the sun, sweat, get a tan, and spend some much needed time together.  We went to Home Depot, Houston Garden Center and HEB.  We did a yard makeover to our front porch and the back!  All in one day...before and after pictures coming later this week.  In the middle of the yard chaos, carpet cleaners came to clean our entire second floor.  We ended the long day of work by trying out a new neighborhood Mexican restaurant...El Toro.  It was awesome...queso, enchiladas, tres leches, oh my!  Bedtime came early so I could make sure I got over whatever bug I had. 

On Easter we went to church with my mom and stepdad and grandparents.  Afterwards we had a huge brunch at my mom's...yum!  The rest of the day was back to work- laundry, groceries, more planting, cleaning and part-time job stuff. 

You would think we would be too exhausted, but it actually felt really good.  This Wedesday, we have our first training appointment together.  Wish us luck...our trainer is very intimidating! 

Hope you have a great week!
