Lazy Weekend Ramblings

Why does it always seem like you need a vacation from your vacation? I spent most of the weekend sleeping. I felt guilty on Saturday because I did absolutely nothing...I didn't even unpack my suitcase. Finally about 7:30 p.m. we went out for sushi and a movie for our date night. The 10:00 o'clock movie was the best because there was no one in the theater at all. We saw, "A Perfect Getaway," which wasn't the best movie, but it did have a twist. If you are looking for a super funny rental you have to see, "I LOVE YOU MAN". We saw this in the theater a while back and I was laughing out loud the entire time (which I never usually do). It is a crack up...MUST SEE!

Sunday we went to church, went downtown had some pizza with the kids, checked out the surf to see if anyone wanted to go out (it was small and mushy) so we came home and slept again. I think I'm sub-consciously gearing up for school to start. Not to mention Hell Week starting tomorrow for Adam & Elijah. Which means tons of running around and early mornings for two a day practices. I also decided to seriously try to get in bed by midnight instead of 2 or 3 a.m. every day. Even if I have to lay there for an hour awake, I'm just going to make sure I'm off the computer by then (if any of you notice my posts are after midnight, PLEASE feel free to call me out!)

One more thing...I'm tired of feeling gross. I've been pretty lucky most of my life and never really had to work out or watch my weight. I've noticed lately that I'm really putting on the lbs. I think that my late nights (along with my 1:00 a.m. bowl of cereal) is packing it on me. I got on my mini stair stepper tonight with arm weights and did some floor exercises. I'm going to be more consistent...I don't feel good about myself at this weight so I'm making an honest effort to drop some lbs.

Well that's it for my lazy weekend ramblings....thanks for listening, I feel much better already!

Oh I know what you mean! We recently went on vacation and I was so glad we went Sunday through Friday because I needed that Sat and Sun afterwards to unwind and unpack!! Plus, I don't know how we really considered it a vacation since we had the kids with us. It was more like a "working vacation"..LOL!

I saw I Love You Man twice in the theatre (once w/ my hubby and once w/ friends) and I loved it too!!!!

Stopping by from SITS to say hello!

It's true that sometimes you just need a vacation from your vacation. They can really wear you out!

sometimes I don't even want to go on vacation because I know I'll be depressed after! Saying that, I didn't feel like doing anything but lying around all weekend either and am still feeling like that is all I want to do ...and feeling rather guilty as well. I'm sure if you drop the late night cereal, you'll drop the lbs too ...easy ..without the stair stepper ;)
