Running.....

I live such a busy life! Sometimes I think if you were to look at me from above all you would see is flashes of color as I run from one place to the next. Ok, so that may be a bit of an exaggeration. Seriously though, I just went from being down a week to being the Roadrunner

I am feeling better than I was. Mostly I lack energy, still feel somewhat weak, and drained, but I'm pushing through.

Friday night was soup, and game night with friends. We all made something, and ended up with: Pistou Soup, french bread, yummy chocolate chip cookies. Then we played Settlers of Catan and Last Word. We got home about 11pm.

Saturday not long after waking up we went to look at a house with my parents. Loved the woodwork, but not sure if it's what they really need. From there we did our shopping, and came home to make BLT Pasta It was so good! Healthy too, which is always a plus for me. I tried to take a nap, but did not succeed. Then Hubby and I had our bi weekly date! We tried a new food joint; Five Guys It was really yummy. I don't think it would be a favorite but I could probably eat there a few times a year! From there we went to Barnes and Noble, where my Hubby bought me a beautiful soft leather journal. I had a lot of fun looking at books for my daughter. I finally choose Amelia Bedelia I remember reading it as a young girl, and my little girl is just as happy with her. We got back fairly late, and each did our own thing for a while at home then we watched a movie and didn't get to bed until about 2 am.

Sunday, oh what a crazy day! I got up, got ready, and ran out the door by 10. Lily and I went to church while Brian saw a doctor. He has a yucky infection. :( We waited after church for him to pick us up, then we went to Arby's with a friend from church. As soon as lunch was done, I was off again. I took Brian and Lily home for naps and met my dear friend for a peaceful afternoon out at Starbucks. We then ran to our storage unit, and dug for a long time only to not find the clothes we were looking for. We went from there to Wal-Mart for Hubby's prescriptions. This takes us up to 6 pm, and so far I had not really been home. Well, from there I went to our church for a church family meeting (or update night) I was out of there by about 8 o'clock. So then I ran to Kroger to return a movie, and while I was there I found someones iPhone in the bathroom. I spent 15 minutes with the manager trying to help her locate the owner. It was very obviously a teenager's phone, and after calling all the "Dad" numbers, and the phone company, a girl walks up yelling at me for having her phone. The manager asked if she could prove it was her phone (she could have just been someone watching us, it was obvious we were trying to locate the owner) The girl yelled at me more, but finally proved she was the owner, and I handed her the phone. She was very mad. It is very sad when someone is treated so disrespectfully when they are trying to help. I just kept thinking; This girl is pretty lucky, most people would have walked off with it!! From there I went back to church because Lily had left her baby doll there, then to drop off 4 day late books and movies at the library. All the running had basically taken the place of dinner so I stopped to pick up a pizza, and then to the video store. I walked back in my door about 12 hours after I had first walked out it!

Today has been another busy day. Worked on then went to bible study most of the morning, lunch and time with Lily when I got home. A heart to heart talk with Hubby who stayed home from work because of the infection. Then de-cluttering!! We started about 5 hours ago and managed to get about 1/2 way done. I wish we could get it all done tonight, but I know if I don't rest now I will fall over, or worse MELTDOWN! So I am going to go find something for dinner now and hope to finish my house tomorrow. I did not work out today, but I'm hoping cleaning out my couch counts! :D
