I’ve written a whole bunch of blog posts in my head, so it’s weird to come to my site and realize that there’s still been nothing new posted since Wednesday…
When I start to feel the way I’ve been feeling lately, I live mostly in my head, so this makes sense I suppose.
My friend Kaila and I have been hitting the gym pretty regularly the last week, and it’s been helping. I like getting out and moving, and it’s nice to have a schedule full of things to do from day to day. Not to mention, she’s one of my closest friends and a great trainer! I’m hoping to feel amazing by the time Erin and I go to Mexico on May 9.
This weekend was pretty spectacular. A friend got last minute tickets to the Calgary Flames game on Friday night, so we met at my place, had dinner and a drink, went to the ‘Dome and cheered on the Flames. Better yet, they even won the game! We had a great time, and then came back to my house and listened to music/danced like idiots and generally were huge goofballs. It’s something I don’t do often enough, and it was fun to just be silly and not care what it might look like.
However, those drinks did me no favours when I hit the gym at 9 the next morning Hitting the treadmill was pretty awful, and I was scoping out the gym to make sure I knew where the nearest garbage can was… Luckily, I held onto my breakfast, and finished the workout too.
After the gym, I met Erin at the mall and we went looking for swimsuits. I found a new top (yay!) and now just need to find a couple new bottoms and I’m good to go. Then, because we were at the mall, we stopped at David’s Tea of course… I managed to refrain from buying any more tea (since I had just spent $30 on tea on Wednesday, oops!) but bought a new mesh ball for myself and one to include in my package to Nonna. Which, by the way, I can’t wait to send!
I also found a new phone case! It’s one of the “YAY CANADA” series in Apple stores, and it makes me smile. So my phone is all ready for Mexico too!
Then the spring snowstorm hit and I gave up on Calgary spring altogether. This is what we’re dealing with right now:
Mexico truly can’t come soon enough. I need some freaking sunshine.
We’re heading to Erin and Jesse’s today so that Thomas, Jesse (his BIL) and Aiden (his nephew) can finish building the Lego Death Star that Aiden got for Christmas this year. I hope the boys have fun, but I think Erin and I will have more fun with tea, Firefly and wine…
