Monday Update

Not much happened over the weekend. I was so tired Friday night (and why wouldn't I be, I left the house at 6:15 Friday morning?), I fell asleep at 9:30. I tried to stay awake to hang out with SO, but it was too much. He told me to go upstairs (maybe I was drooling on the futon, I don't know. I remember apologizing for being tired since I am Superwoman, LOL), and I was asleep in 10 minutes, and did not MOVE til 9:30 the next morning.

Saturday I went for a walk through the neighborhood. Either I'm getting stronger, or I wasn't hard enough on myself, because I wasn't as sore as I was the first time I made that walk. I've been trying to walk more and lift weights, so maybe it's helping. I don't feel smaller. The scale isn't moving, but I feel a wee bit stronger. We did watch the Preakness. I have to say, I didn't think Rachel Alexandra was going to win, and I was worried she'd hurt herself going up against the boys, but she is a beautiful, big-going girl, and I was so glad she won. Heck, as long as she made it through safely, it would have been a victory, especially since her former owner thought the Derby was a race for colts (he said stallions), not fillies. Wonder where that puts Mine that Bird, a gelding? This Triple Crown season is really a people's season; we've had an underdog from New Mexico beat the big boys, and a GIRL! Woo hoo.

Saturday night, my friend Samantha and I went karaokeing. I don't get the chance to do that much anymore, since there aren't that many places in my new county to do it in. And my voice has been wonky for the last month or so, but it was better Saturday night. I still didn't push it, though, and chose songs that are easy on the vocal cords. I need those!

Yesterday was our hanging out day. I stitched a little bit, but not much. The lions are back to confusing me, since all the colors are so close. I pulled out my stitchy light, and that helped some--the light really defines the colors on this piece. I'll try to post some pictures later.

Sometimes quiet weekends are just best. I hope this week goes easier for you!

Yay! Nice to hear that a girl beat a pack of boys for once ;o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
