Today, I’m not really feeling the whole work thing. I’m trying hard to motivate myself and be a good worker; but I keep thinking of things to Google. For example, I’ve Googled how to make cheese, and now I’m trying to figure out why the stock market has tanked. Yes, I really did Google “how to make cheese” this morning. Right. Ah, moving on to my Weekend Update.
My friend Holly came over for dinner. We had a healthy chicken pot pie, healthy green beans, really unhealthy Mac-n-Cheese, and topped off the meal with some unhealthy ice cream. I suppose everything balanced out.
Most of the meal was discussing Holly’s wedding plans. She’s gettin’ hitched this summer. I’m very happy for Holly! I know she’s met a great man that makes her extremely happy.
Saturday was kind of a boring day. It wasn’t my typical OK Chick Saturday morning- no race. Though, I did clean my house and finished all my laundry. We are talking hardcore cleaning- dusting and shower duty; and we are talking hardcore laundry. I have now washed all my ski trip stuff. Shut up, I don’t want to hear it.
After I had exhausted every household chore it was off to Hometown, USA. I needed to return my washed ski stuff, see the fam, and eat some of my mom’s soup.
After a wonderful cup of soup I headed to Land of the Sooners. I was eating dinner with two dear friends. Since I’d already eaten I spent the meal sipping on Mango Ice Teas. I recommend Mango Ice Tea from Chili’s-pretty good. It was fun to catch up with my friends but I could have done without the dinner topic. The dinner topic was dating and being single. Now, on this blog I rant about being single, but I’m not really worried that I’m single. I can’t say it consumes my thoughts; but it was interesting to hear their opinions on the issue. I can’t say I added much to the conversation, which is how I drank 2 Mango Ice Teas and 2 Waters, but an enjoyable evening.
Exciting day! First, I started off my day with a run. My goal was to run 5 miles. HOWEVER, I rock so I ran 6 miles. I was way pumped! It’s the most miles I’ve ran in a while, and I did it in a decent time- not turtle pace. After all that excitement I taught my lovely 4th graders about the importance of obeying their parents. And then since I hadn’t had enough kids for the day, I went to a one year olds party. Man, it’s a big deal to turn one now days. There was a fancy cake, cupcakes, nachos, fruit, and tons of presents for the birthday girl. The poor girl was tired after opening all her presents. Heck, I’d be tired from opening all those presents. Fun times! So even though all this was super exciting, the highlight of the day was at the grocery store. Folks, I bought three boxes of Post cereal and a gallon of milk for $6.08. Yes, $6! I saved more money with coupons/store promotions than what I spent. Coupons people! Cou-pons!
There you have it….another typical weekend for OK Chick.
