Weekend Wrap Up!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

HEY! It is officially spring so I got rid of my old Weekend Wrap Up image and put up the more spring/summery one! Did you notice? No, of course you didn't! That's why I had to point it out! Anyway, here is what I was up to this weekend...



My weekend actually started on Thursday due to Friday's snowstorm canceling school. I knew another snow day at this point would add an extra day on to the end of the year, but I needed the day off. Thursday was a really crappy day at work. So crappy that I stopped at the liquor store on the way home. But I had to wait until after piano lessons (at 7:30) to drink it. (By the way, please don't think it was the students that made the day crappy. Not at all. I can handle students. It's all the other stuff that makes things stressful.)

This picture was taken at 7:33.

I slept quite well on Thursday night, which was wonderful. I have struggled with sleeping all this week. Even though we had off school on Friday, I still got up at 5:30 and squeezed a run in. I was done before 8! What a great feeling!

It snowed in my face the whole time, but it made me feel invigorated!


I started another puzzle, so I spent much of the day watching Forensic Files and doing puzzles with Jelly.


I also went to the grocery store and bought these:


Paul and I had made a pact that we wouldn't buy any ice cream until summer. But I found a loophole. Sundae Nut Cones are not ice cream. They are Sundae Nut Cones.




I finished my puzzle!


I went on a really hilly run... I will tell you about it later in the week!


I went to Wal Mart to buy a toilet seat. They didn't have them. So I went to Sear's. Didn't have toilet seats either. So I explored the rest of the mall and got these dope blue sunglasses that I totally plan to wear on vacation this summer.


And I bought these socks. They are for 32 year olds, right?

Too bad they aren't comrpession socks!!

And I started another puzzle! I told Paul we need to get my a card table for my puzzles. Because old ladies have card tables in their living rooms so they can do puzzles and watch their programs. Right?



They had really cool puzzles at the mall but they were all about $14! All the puzzles I had done so far were from Dollar General and cost a buck. I couldn't imagine spending a lot more than that since the ones I got at DG were perfectly fine. So on the way home from the mall, I swung by my neighborhood DG and picked up a couple more 500 piece puzzles for only $1 each. You can't beat that!



Due to an iced coffee from Starbucks that I enjoyed on Friday Saturday afternoon, I was up really late on Saturday night. (What do they put in those things!?) I forced myself to get up early on Sunday and get in a workout. I lifted back at home in my pajamas while I watched Dateline.

Then we went to my brother and sister-in-law's house and played games all afternoon! We dug out 1313 Dead End Drive- a game from our childhood. I WON!


I have sort of been keeping something from you... We watched a lot of Survivor this weekend. And that's what we did all Sunday night. We are obsessed! We're now on Season 8- All-Stars! Woot woot!
 
Does Starbucks make you really hype?
Tell me something fun you did this weekend!

  1. Oh those socks are awesome! I need doggy ones like that. I have to tell you that my older aunt used to have a card table in her living room and trading that line that Paul said made me laugh so hard!

    1. LOL that is awesome! I am a legit aunt so I think it is about time I invest in a card table.

  2. Ha, I'm one of those people that can have coffee right before bed and sleep fine. BUT I do have trouble sleeping before midnight in general.

    1. I have so much trouble sleeping as it is so I couldn't imagine sleeping after coffee!

  3. Love the socks!
    Our library has puzzles that you can check out (free!). They have a lot of the mystery ones where you read the story and the answer is in the puzzle. I wonder if your library has them--It could just be a SMALL town thing! :)
    I can't have caffeine after 3 or I am up FOREVER.
    Sherbet, sorbet... also, not ice cream...

    1. I never thought to check out the library! We did go to a local thrift shop yesterday and stock up on a bunch.

  4. Those socks are the cutest!

    Jelly is such a good puzzle helper. I am sure if I tried to put together a puzzle Cecil would knock all of the pieces onto the floor, or he would lay on top of them. That's usually what he does when we try to play Rummikub!

    1. Oh shortly after that picture was taken, Jelly totally walked on my puzzle pieces and mixed up some of the piles. Of course you can't get mad.

    1. I think we should all do a silly sock post where we post pics of our silliest socks. :)

  6. I don't drink coffee - I know it would just add to the lack of sleep.
    I have a couple of big puzzles that I've been saving for a slow week:)

    1. I can't picture you ever slowing down for a puzzle!

  7. Hahaha this is why I only let myself have coffee in the mornings, except on rare occasions. I can never drink it all before it gets too cold (seriously these things should come with a ticking timer to remind us slow drinkers!) anyway.

    You always have such fun looking weekends. Kevin was sick this weekend so we didn't really do anything. My favorite part was going to the coffeeshop on Saturday afternoon for a few hours to just chill and do some writing.

    1. I will say, while we don't always have big plans, we do have a lot of fun. :) I think it's just that Paul and I like to be together so we can make anything fun!

      I hope Kevin is feeling better!

  8. I figured you may have been off Friday. For some reason, I still get email notifications of school closings and delays from the school district I use to work for down that way.

    I haven't done a puzzle in forever. I do enjoy them though. Have you ever tried one of those Murder mystery puzzles? I always thought they would be fun. I bet they are on the higher end as far as cost though.

    1. No I never have tried that type of puzzle but that would be fun!

      Yeah we totally had off even though the roads weren't bad. I needed it though.

  9. Yes Starbucks makes me so hyped up! I was at a work conference a few years ago that had free unlimited starbucks and I drank SO much over the 4 days that when I went back to trying to drink regular coffee it wasn't enough and I would get headaches. Not good.

  10. I seriously love that you love puzzles. SO awesome. What is your favorite puzzle of all time? Is that a fair question?

    Those socks rock! I would proudly wear them at the age of 33. ☺

    Sounds like you had a relaxing, mellow, and fun weekend. Those are the best. This weekend my husband and I bought a house, went to a movie, and did a lot of running.

    1. You bought a house!? Can't wait to hear about it. :)

      I feel like it is a little early in my puzzle career to be having a favorite, but I just did an ocean one and it was fun because there were so many parts... colorful fish, sand, trees, plants... and it was easy to sort. I love sorting the puzzle just as much as building it!
