Monday - After work I went to church for our last comedy night. I didn't make if to the other comedy nights but I am so glad I went! I have definitely needed some extra laughter. Michael JR was the comedian for the night. He was great. My friend Jessica joined me with her boyfriend. It was 9 o'clock by the time we got out. By the time I got home Coach was beyond ready to go for a walk and it was my bedtime. ;-)
Tuesday - work, looked at used cars with Justin, grocery shopping, and home.
Wednesday - after work I went to my friend Dara's for dinner. It was a very much needed! Even though I didn't end up eating dinner I enjoyed her company and encouragement. I've decided I'm on a new diet called the "I have no air in my car". I get so hot on my ride home from work, that I don't eat dinner.
Thursday - after work I came straight home to spend time with my Coach-man... and go to bed early. Yes, I am an old lady. Work is mentally draining and I have been going through some spiritual and emotional "growing" and changes. Rest is even more essential right now. I love sleep anyway. :-)
Friday - I worked a half day and left at noon to pick up my sister Heather's car. She dog sat for me and let me use her car(Violla the Corolla) to drive to Panama City beach. I went and met up with my sweet friend April and her family. They had been at the beach all week. I only have 3 vacation days for the year so I decided going for the night was better than nothing. It rained lightly my whole drive. And I, being the genius that I am, decided to take the scenic route down 98 along the beaches. Beautiful ride but my legs were killing me by the time I got to the resort. Heather's car is a manual and I've only ever owned automatics.. but I only stalled twice. ;-) Thank you, Honey. I don't think the Echo is up to long trips and it would have been a hot trip in the rain with no air. I had a great night with April and her wonderful kids.
Saturday - They had to check out Saturday so we were up early even after a late night of chatting. I woke up with a horrible headache, fever and nausea. I hit the road when they checked out at 10. I hated having to say goodbye after such a skirt visit but I am hoping to go see them again over labor day weekend. I stopped at a rest area with the intention of just closing my eyes for a few minutes and hopefully make my head stop pounding. I locked the doors and cracked the windows... and apparently fell asleep for about 30 minutes. But I felt SO much better when I woke up. Aside from being sweaty. Haha. I made it back to Mobile, exchanged cars with Heather, took care of Coach as soon as I got home, unloaded my car( and put everything away which is a serious shocker for me) then crashed for a few hours. I woke up still running a fever but my head want hurting as bad. I cleaned the living room and kitchen and cleaned all of Heather's quilt set and pillows so I can( finally) return them to her. Jessica cane over for a bit and then I was ready to crash again. I felt physically exhausted.
Sunday - I wrote up feeling much more refreshed this morning. I went to church and ran some errands. It was too hot to take Coach to the dog park so we stayed in and played in the air conditioning. :-) I put the first layer of paint on my dining room table. I'm so excited to see the finished product but it is going to take several days of work to get the different layers and colors done. I will probably work on it a little bit every night this week. I'm finishing my night up with watching The Love Boat, season 1, disc 1.
Goals for next week -
* work out at least 3 times. No point paying for a gym membership if I am not going to use it.
* take Coach to the dog park, bath then flea treatment
* get my new lenses for my glasses while they are still under warranty.
* read more - my Bible and for pleasure. I did well with my quiet time and prayer this week. I didn't read at all for pleasure. I need to start making a dent in all my free kindle books I download from Inspired Reads.
* don't eat out, pack all of my lunches.
