How is already Sunday night? I know everyone is just dying to know about my weekend. So brace yourself… here is it.
For the most part, this weekend was pretty low key. On Friday I headed to the gym after work and then counteracted that by eating pizza for dinner. After the kids went to bed we caught up on a few TV shoes (our DVR is like 70% full and I think it’s giving my husband agita, he’s a serious DVR Nazi).
Saturday the kids let me sleep until 8. When I say let me sleep I mean they are awake at 7, but Dan puts the TV on when he leaves at 7:30 and they don’t kill eat other for about 30 minutes. I’ll miss that extra 30 minutes. The rest the day was just a typical Saturday. My little dancer danced (and got her costume for her June dance recital).
I worked out and then we ate sandwiches. This is my favorite sandwich: turkey, provolone, hummus, lettuce, tomato, onions, and cucumbers served HOT on multigrain bread.
After nap when we ventured down to the neighbors house and the kids played for almost 2 hours. I rarely see people outside on my street, but for some odd reason everyone was out and about yesterday. It was nice!
After a dinner of leftovers (I have been quite the gourmet chef this week), the kids went to bed and so did I. Yeah, party up in this b*tch! I probably didn’t actually go to sleep until closer to 9, but I was in my bed by 8 – with a wakeup call of 2am. Oof, that was rough. I looked the part.
It was worth it though – I made it out to Disney by 3:15 and was at my volunteer station (the Magic Kingdom Auto Plaza — where you pay for MK parking) by 4:15.
There were about 10 of us that were “Course Monitors” and we pretty much hung out for an hour before getting into position for the runners.
My job? Warn people about the speed bumps coming through the plaza.
That’s me in the middle there. They gave me a light saber.
Thankfully, we were between the 2-3 mile mark and the first runners started coming through around 5:45.
Running faster than I could ever imagine going…
I did my best to greet, cheer, and warn people coming through. Only about 10 people fell (I only saw one person and her fall looked PAINFUL) — not bad when there were 25,000 runners!
I looked for everyone I knew running and only saw Jeannie, Andrea, and Kelly – but I’m sure everyone else kicked ass and had fun! Race duties ended around 8 and after picking my complimentary ticket – I picked up Theresa for breakfast.
My hair looked totally awesome.
She’s in town doing the Disney/Daytona 500 thing with family — and it was perfect timing because I am rarely over on that side of town. We ate at IHOP and stuffed our faces silly (me more than her — I ate most of an omelet, some pancakes, and most of my hasbrowns). There was a lot of pregnancy/baby talk because she is also pregnant! I think we could have kept talking for hours, but the people at IHOP nicely asked us to leave (they DID have a huge line of people waiting and we were there for more than an hour and a half!).
This might be the scarier picture of myself that I’ve ever posted.
When I got home I hung with the kids a little bit, but they were quickly whisked away by my friend, Tracy. As their Christmas gift (and ours) she gave them “a day with Tracy.” She took them to lunch, to the park to play, and then to Sweet Frogs (for froyo). Dan and I were supposed to “do something fun!” while she was with them, but I decided to take a nap/go grocery shopping and Dan went to spin class. Woomp, woomp. The nap was MUCH needed though – I can actually form coherent sentences right now.
We did do a little organization while the kids were gone. L now has a bookcase in her room and the living room has been reorganized with the bedroom armoir. I’d take pictures, but I am far too comfortable to get off the couch at the moment. We still have SOOOO much to do, but our time is extremely limited. I’m definitely not going to be making my “painting deadline” for the baby’s room (nor have I even picked out the paint color). Hopefully we will get everything set up in the next month though.
And now I’m closing out the weekend with family snuggles and some of the Oscars before I pass out. I have a feeling it’s going to be an early night!
Any weekend excitement in your neck of the woods? Who raced? How did you do???
