Brrr!

18 Apr

Isn’t it supposed to be spring?  I guess someone forgot to tell Mother Nature this morning.  And since our house’s heating/ac runs differently than most people’s, our house was 60!!!  That is waaaay too cold for me!

I know I haven’t posted in the last few days.  It’s been sorta crazy.  On Wed. night I fell asleep on the couch a little past 8pm.  That is probably a new record for me.  I cannot believe I was that tired!  We had walked around the block and stopped at McD’s for a quick drink and I literally didn’t think I could get up out of the seat and walk home.  My legs felt like bricks.   So I guess it shouldn’t have been a surprise!

Thursday is a blur.  Neither the husband nor I can believe what we did.  I guess nothing important happened.  This just goes to show how boring my life is!   🙂  I do remember getting a small run in the morning that’s it.

Friday was really fun!  My Dad met me for lunch and got me a late bday present.  He decided to get the book I wanted from the Borders down the street that I have been saving up my money for.  The book is Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes.  I’m not the biggest fan of Martha Stewart but after looking through this book…I needed it!  I always love having lunch with my Dad even if it was super windy!

Around 4pm, the hubs asked if I would like to go to the Louisville Bats baseball game that night.  We made plans for him to meet me downtown for dinner.  To keep dinner within our budget and because many restaurants do not stay open past 4pm, we went to T.G.I Fridays.  My dinner was less than stellar.  My chicken has caesar dressing all over it which I did not care for.  I was assured that it would not be on there but I ate it regardless.  But I do have leftovers for Monday!

After dinner, we headed over to the ball field.  On the way over we heard that it was nearly a sold out game despite the fact that it started to pour.  We decided not to wait it out and went to a movie instead.  I was exhausted afterwards and we soon headed to bed.

Saturday, April 17, 2010 in Louisville meant one thing to most Louisvillians, Thunder Over Louisville.  Thunder Over Louisville is the country’s largest annual fireworks show and includes an airshow as well.  However, the hubs and I have been several times (only once together) and find that it is usually crowded and hot.  Many times, I have been at Slugger Field (where the Bats play) and I think that is the best route to go.  You get a baseball game, clean bathrooms and a nice place to sit down.  I have a short attention span so I can’t stand just sitting around all day.  Have a game to break up the time is much needed.

Since we did not have plans to go to Thunder and because we had already slept too late to really get a good workout at the gym before it got crowded.  We both agreed to go later in the day and to hurry so that we could visit the Farmer’s Market again.  I don’t know how often we will buy things at the Farmer’s Market because it is more expensive but I really like going.  We walked up and down Bardstown Rd. and grabbed a quick bite to eat before deciding to check out the Thunder scene.  We wanted to beat most of the crowds and I had free parking at work (we saw parking for as much as $30) so we thought we would walk around a bit.  We ended up scoring free Coke Zero and had fun looking at all the neat food and people watching but only stayed less than an hour.

A new store opened in town and after calling my mom (she just took my Dad to the airport to catch a flight to see his Aunt Bobbie) we went to check it out.  It is called Fresh Produce Warehouse.  It is supposed to have really fresh and cheap produce so we def. wanted to check it out.  We got a few apples and some locally made corn salsa.  We got to taste it before buying and I loved it.  I’m going to try to make my own after I gobble up what we bought.  My mom bought several things and was very pleased with the prices.  I thought the variety of fresh fruit and vegetables was awesome.  While I’m still trying to learn to like a lot of vegetables, I can appreciate the varieties.  They also had a whole wall full of locally made products which I really liked.  Overall, a really neat store.  I think we will be going back.

We headed home and started scraping wallpaper.  Whoever thought wallpaper was a good idea, has never had to remove it!  Luckily, we only have a border in our bathroom but it has proved very difficult to remove.  We stopped when we were about halfway around the bathroom.  Then we chilled for the rest of the evening.

Notice: no workout happened.  We decided to do it Sunday after church.

That leads me to today.  And today could have been a lot better.  I had to get up a little extra early to do a dress rehearsal of a skit for church.  While getting ready, the hubs had bad news…our dryer wasn’t working correctly.  It seems to be turning out but there is no heat so it won’t dry!  What’s more is that we didn’t finish all of last week’s laundry so we had more that we had planned for this week.  Not a good way to start the day!

After church (skit went well) we headed to Walgreens to get a prescription taken care of and then went to mooch off my parent’s working dryer.  We ended up doing laundry at their house for over 7 hours.  I’m not even sure of exactly how long it was but I do know that we were there for at least 7 hrs.  We did leave to run some errands but we could not get a lot of cleaning done at the house when we were doing laundry at my parent’s house.  So with the exception of laundry, we have had a fairly unproductive day.

We finally got all of our laundry done and headed home.  I don’t like to clean but I immediately set out to put all of my clothes away and then tackle the dishes.  So now that I am frustrated and tired, I’m going to get ready for bed.   Hopefully I can get a workout in tomorrow.  However, I cannot do anything too much since the mini is next week.  AHHHHH!!!  I can’t believe it is so soon.

Have a great night everyone!
