Is it really Monday again already? Maybe you are one of the lucky people who has the day off today. I’ll be working, but since the school where I work is closed that means an office/paperwork day for me. This kids are off on Tuesday as well (for staff professional development) so it’s a nice way to ease back into the workweek.
How about that weather this weekend? I feel like 95% of you are nodding in agreement. And those of you who had nice weather, well…we don’t like you. Just kidding. We are just insanely jealous of you and question our decision to live where we do every day from December through March.
The wind was so scary all of Saturday evening and Sunday. Plus we got just enough snow on Saturday night to make the sidewalks and streets nice and icy. It looks like we may get some more snow this week too. I don’t know how the Boston people have survived this winter with snowstorm after snowstorm.
Anyway, at least the weather was good on Saturday so I could run outside. Between running less days per week and doing some of my runs on the Alter-G the outdoor runs don’t happen very often. I did 8 miles of an out-and-back flat route and felt really good.
We also got to see our new house! We hadn’t been there in two weeks so this time we got to see some of the kitchen put together and most of the bathrooms are done! It’s a little scary to have to wait to see the stuff we picked out in the design center and hope that it looks good! Now I just need to see the floors to know that it all came together nicely.
We made the very silly decision to go to Whole Foods on a Saturday at 11am. On a day that we were expecting a “snow storm”. We should have driven away immediately when we had a difficult time finding a parking spot but instead we circled around a bit and then created our own spot in the corner on some grass. Once we got inside I knew we were in big trouble. Rob and I split up to get the few things we had gone there for and met up in the line to check out, which we had to stand in for 15 minutes. The craziest part is that I am pretty sure we were the only ones phased by this madness. Everyone else was smiling and relaxed and enjoying their Saturday. I guess we just aren’t meant to shop at Whole Foods because I really don’t have the patience for that.
Our reasoning behind going to Whole Foods in the first place was to get steaks to cook for Valentines Day. So after getting a bunch of errands done we stayed in, cooked dinner, drank wine, and laid on the couch in pajamas. Perfect way to celebrate if you ask me:)
We realized this was our 10th Valentines Day together so tried to remember what we did each year. I think we were able to remember each year but it got harder to remember more recent years because we didn’t do anything as “memorable”. For the first 6 or so years we went on long-weekend trips so those were a bit easier to remember.
On Sunday we ventured outside long enough to go to church but the wind was pretty scary. I spent the rest of the day inside listening to the wind from the safety of the couch. After I did my PT exercises I decided to attempt “Bird of Paradise” pose since Salt had tagged me in the #taketheleap challenge the day before. I also worked on crow for a few minutes and headstand against a wall. Then I got dizzy and gave up and finally took a shower at 3pm.
Clearly this was not a very exciting weekend if I’m telling you about when I took a shower. But weekends like this leave me refreshed and prepared for the week ahead. Since I will have a little more flexibility in the mornings on Monday and Tuesday this week I’m planning to do some different workouts through ClassPass (affiliate link).
What did you do this weekend?
How was your Valentines Day?
Do crowded grocery stores stress you out or do you just go-with-the-flow?
