I’ve been missing in action from the blogging world for the past few days, but you’ll be glad to hear I haven’t completely fallen off the planet (or maybe not *grin*). It has just been one of those weekends where I wake up at 6:30 a.m., get home at 7:30 p.m., have dinner, shower then straight to bed at 9:00. A whole weekend of training can leave a girl feeling completely zonked out, but I shall save that story for another day.
I’m normally a bounce-out-of-bed, hum-a-good-tune, glad-that-it’s-morning person. But I decided Monday should be reserved entirely for a little R&R, considering I’ve been waking up the past couple of days looking like this.
Can’t you just see this new trend of a hairstyle sweep across the nation?
I was having a fabulous time lounging in my old and faded comfortable sweatpants, allowing my muscles to recuperate when Miss Early-Bird-Catches-The-Worm-Mom calls. “Let’s go for a walk! Just a short one, I need the exercise”. What? A walk?! Not only did I not feel like peeling my bum off my very comfortable couch but this was coming from the woman who would say a 5-minute walk from one mall to another was “a ridiculous marathon”!
I finally decided to go along because I needed some fresh air (plus I thought she would turn back after 3 minutes).
It lasted three hours. And along the way, we only popped into her points of interest. By that I mean two shops that sell cooking ware, which in my mind is the most boring place on earth. A pan is a pan, is a pan, is still just a pan. Plus she already has a zillion, half of which are still new and unused. But what did we end up buying (among other things)?
We were so tired and hungry after our 3-hour “hike” that we popped our stomachs into McDonald’s. And completely defeated the purpose of going for a walk in the first place by devouring double cheeseburgers with large fries. I won’t lie, it tasted good.
As we walked back, it started raining on top of the cold and the wind! This is Aberdeen we’re talking about. I got home, changed back into my old sweatpants and curled up with a good book on my couch.
I should never have left!
