This was a whirlwind of a weekend that didn’t provide much downtime. If I was relaxing, there was always something going on.
I started my Friday night on the couch watching a Hallmark Christmas movie, before it was time to head over to Al & Kris’.
We chatted from about 6:30 until 9:30. Talking about work, life, dating, and the good ol’ days of high school and college. Their cats are ridiculous. They were never this promiscuous when we lived together.
I stayed up way too late Friday night… probably like midnight, so waking up at 7ish to get my run in was super incredibly painful. I covered 3.45 miles and then I thought I was going to faint so I stopped .05 miles short of my goal, which is really annoying since I am so anal about my runs.
I had to shower super-duper quick, as my Dad and I had our annual “Father/Daughter Last Minute Christmas Shopping Day” to take part in. Once we were done, I changed into a warmer outfit, freshened up, and headed to Gerry’s for the rest of the day. Two weeks ago we were supposed to go up to Portsmouth, NH, which for those not local, it’s a quaint little city about 45 minutes from us. Unfortunately it had been raining nonstop, so we had to put our plan on hold.
We wanted to go so that we could go ice skating at the 1st annual ice skating rink at Strawbery Banke. We finally made it, and it was so much fun. I truly felt like I was in a Hallmark Christmas movie. There were couples and families skating around and having so much fun.
You know how in those movies the girl always has this really cruddy guy, and then she meets a great guy and then they go ice skating at this quaint, sparkly ice skating rink? That’s what it felt like. When the girl gets her happy ending. I went flying twice. I am not coordinated.
We did not eat dinner until 9. I had no appetite and then all of a sudden it hit me and I immediately thought that I was going to throw up and faint from extreme hunger. So weird, right? I was going to be healthy, but I was so hungry that I didn’t even care so I ate the entire burger and half of the fries. Worth every bite.
I had totally planned on going Christmas shopping during Sunday afternoon, but my Dad asked Gerry to come over and watch football with him, so from 12:30-4 I was sandwiched between these 2 men watching football. The rest of my afternoon was spent failing at Christmas shopping and striking out at the few places I went (I only bought shaving cream and peanut butter –> so it wasn’t a complete fail).
Christmas movies with my Mom to end the night. 🙂
Have you gone ice skating yet?
