The weekend is DONE!
I am sitting here with an icing my aching feet and drinking a nice cold beer (make that plural). Normally I would not be happy about the weekend being done, but busy ones like this make me crave my weekly routine. This weekend was one for the record books.
Today's event was a hit. Our Parent Advisory Council put on a Mom's Retreat which is a day of fun and relaxation for women (unless you are working the event, in that case you run your ass off). It was fun and I got to do what I love, take photos. I did the photo booth as well as event photos. I got to also meet some local comedic talent, Darlene Westgor who won Nick at Nite's Funniest Mom in America and Miss Shannan another hysterical comedienne and local DJ.
One of the fun things that we had going on during the day was chair massages out on the deck. I took a 15 minute break and was able to take advantage of one. The massage therapist was appalled at the knots in my back. I moaned and groaned and made some really *ahem* interesting noises when she hit the painful spots in my back. But it felt soooo good! Chubby Hubby, if you are reading this a massage would be a GREAT Mother's Day gift (hint hint).
Yesterday ended up being great! While I was frantically in Tar-jay searching for church appropriate pants that fit my chubby butt, I received a phone call from the photographer that just 12 hours earlier was pleading for my help. She was calling to let me know that her regular assistant was miraculously feeling better and that she would not need my services. I felt a blow up coming on, afterall I did completely clear my schedule and rearrange my day to bail her ass out. Then came the wave of relief. To sum that feeling, I was "happy pissed" (Thanks Tana for a new word)
So with that off the agenda, I was able to celebrate Sarge's birthday by meeting up at Lake Harriet for a 5K and cake. Then later that night I met for dinner at one of the local restaurants where the party continued with good food and even better laughs. I was so happy to make it to the 5K portion because it got me excited to want to run again. Minneapolis has so many awesome places to run and seeing all the people running made me want to get out there.
So to sum up the weekend.....exhausting but fantastic. I back to my regular scheduled programming tomorrow.....(hopefully that will include a little bit of running).
I am off to catch up on my Google Reading. Holy moly....you people are writing maniacs.
