Weekend Highlights!!!! (and a big 'ol freaking low light)

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

Happy Monday!
Here are some highlights from my weekend....

1. Let's just start with a highlight from early Friday morning... Roger Stone got indicted. Wahoo!

2. On Saturday afternoon, had an AWESOME progression run on the treadmill. My old paces are getting much easier for me now!

3. Even though I didn't feel like doing it, I cleaned my whole house and did all of the wash. There was so much cat litter....

4. Saturday night's dinner was Sushi at Akita's in Lemoyne. So good!

Now for the low light...

I forgot to take my sleeping pills on Saturday night, which means I slept for four hours, woke up at 2am, and never fell back asleep. It FREAKING SUCKED. It basically ruined my whole day because I had no energy to do anything.

I did manage to do this puzzle and watch Gone Girl before the sun even came up...

I thought I could cheer myself up with a trail run, but I drove all the way to the trail to discover it was a SHEET of ice. I had to go back home and run in my neighborhood. Another huge bummer. I cried. It was that kind of day.

Oh, did I tell you I got my period that morning too? I basically feel sick the first day of my period... like I am coming down with the flu, nauseated, lower back pain, cramps, GI issues... it freaking SUCKS. I wish I didn't have to get my period. I know people who got that ablation thing but I'm not sure it helps with symptoms other than bleeding. I don't care about the bleeding. It's all the other bullshit that sucks.

Then I just spent the rest of the day distracting myself so I wouldn't fall asleep to early. I started the Netflix show called You. It's very good. I guess you could call my time watching that show the one and only highlight from Sunday.

I wanted to stay up to watch Rent but I DVR'ed instead. I'm sure I'll wake up at like 4 tomorrow morning and have time to watch it before work.... BLECH.

Sorry to end this on a sour note!
Tell me a highlight from your weekend!


  1. Dont you wish the weekends were 4 days instead of just 2? That way if the first 2 days didnt go so well it doesn't make the whole weekend a wash. Hope you get some much needed sleep this week. Hey, maybe we will have a delay or two coming up? We can hope right!

  2. Sorry you had a tough couple days :( I'm always exhausted during my period and have some back pain but I don't have the other symptoms you have to deal with. That sounds tough. I DVR'ed Rent Live too, I'm looking forward to watching it tonight.

    1. I actually heard some bad reviews about it so I'm scared to watch it. :(

  3. That sucks about your Sunday. I've had those days when I'm dead tired and I just feel like crying all the time, out of tired frustration. And I do cry. I had to Google ablation. Never heard of that! I guess I'm approaching a new phase of my womanhood... my periods are super light/non existent. And bonus, I get bad cramps - odd because I haven't had cramps for years. Oh joy.

    1. Yes the tiredness helped make me cry too. It sucked. :( So light period but bad cramps???? That doesn't feel like an equal switch!
