If you didn’t notice, I went missing since Friday afternoon. I needed to get away. I had this weekend planned for awhile and I was actually considering backing out because of all the house stuff that’s been going on. But then I realized… No.. I need to go. I need to get away. It is the only time I’ll be able to relax. If I’m home I’ll be fidgeting and worrying about the new house, and selling this one.
So I went and, boy, am I glad I did. I had a BLAST! Noting beats an escape from realty for a few days with your girlfriend. :) We saw a movie, played some pool, gambled a bit, had a few drinks, and danced all night at a club. You know all the things you are suppose to do in Atlantic CIty. :) I even got hit on by a 22 year old that couldn’t believe I was 32. LMAO That does wonders for your self esteem. ;~P
I got home this evening and was immediately struck by the reality of having a house on the market when I saw this. FREAKY!
*sigh* Like I said… back to reality. :)
So today wasn’t the most Sensational Sunday I’ve had this year. On the food front my day started with an entire small vegetable pizza and ended with about 600 calories worth of chocolate covered cranberries that I "bought for the toddler". Ummm yea.. the toddler. :)
I think my poor diet paired with returning to piles of work put me in a bit of a mood this afternoon. I was just down. But thankfully after dinner the husband helped me get moving again. Yes you read that correctly. HE motivated ME. LOL that never happens. :)
I didn’t get my run in today but I’ll make it up tomorrow. I needed a weekend off and that included working out too. This week my schedule is all out whack. I just plan on doing what I can when I can. The house is clean, Ryan’s lunch is made and I’m ready to start a crazy week!! Running, working out, finishing up the new blog, writing all my posts (and guest posts) all while trying to keep this house "show ready". What am I? CRAZY?!?
Why yes.. yes I am. :)
Since I missed the weekend quote this week I’ll leave you with one I found today.
The answer to old age is to keep one’s mind busy and to go on with one’s life as if it were interminable. I always admired Chekhov for building a new house when he was dying of tuberculosis. ~Leon Edel
I not only believe that about life but also weight loss. Once I started keeping busy and not worrying about being thin I actually ended up losing the weight. I guess you can say…
The answer to weight loss is to keep one’s mind busy and to go on with one’s life as if you were already thin.
As for me and my crazy obsession with “being busy”, you know what they say about idle hands. ;~P
