5-Mile Run – PENDING
Is it just me or does it feel like it went from winter straight to summer? Don’t get me wrong, I love this weather, but does this mean it’s going to be an unbearable summer? If it is, I might have to rethink the whole NYC Marathon training. I am such a wimp when it comes to training in the humidity. Not just that, but I’ll be doing those long training runs by my lonesome self.
Last night we celebrated my
little brother’s 23rd birthday. I can’t believe he’s not a baby anymore. He’s graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Business/Finance and is currently studying for his CPA. Since his girlfriend has class this evening, we decided to celebrate a day early with the family. It just worked out better for everyone’s schedule.
Dinner was not particularly what I had in mind. I tried something new, which I normally don’t do, but it was okay since I wasn’t crazy hungry. I had a huge grilled steak salad for lunch. So for dinner, I decided to try their Thai Chicken Salad.
I gave it a C-. While the presentation was amazing, the taste was not the greatest. It was too spicy for me, and that was after asking the waiter if it were spicy. His answer, “OH, no, not at all.” The correct answer is always, “Well, everyone definition of spicy is different”. If he had said that to me, then I probably would have gone with another dish. Live and learn.
Unfortunately, I hardly ate dinner at all. Between feeding Lili, holding her, and taking bites here and there, I left with a full plate of Salad and an empty stomach. But like I said, I was already full from my lunch earlier that day. My family is not big on ordering desserts, so when I got home, I ate my own desserts.
It’s a beautiful FRIDAY and I’m looking forward to the weekend. My mom’s neighbor got chosen to have their basement remodeled on HGTV so they’re filming today and they invited my family over. I told them to dress Lili in black since the camera adds 10 lbs. Lili got a kick out of it. I hope she gets on TV. I’ll let you know when it airs.
Other plans this weekend? Working on my tax appeal, LAUNDRY, 16-mile run, FAMILY TIME, need to get new tires, ORGANIZE, go through closet so I can send Allie’s clothes out, etc. I’m also feeling a bit pinspired, so I’m sure I’ll be baking/cooking up something.
What are your plans this weekend? I’m not kidding when I tell you I have a lot of laundry. It looks like it’ll be raining all weekend. Boo stinkin’ hoo. I guess we can’t always have gorgeous spring/summer days.
