Nine and ten hour days.
I bore myself with all this work talk.
Let's recap our weekend in Houston while I still have a few brain cells left.
Kicked it off eating at a place called Fajita Willie's. Super yummy.
And some good base running.
Their team won both games on Saturday and played three more on Sunday. It was only 105 degrees. And so dang windy.
For those of you who know me well, take a minute to think about my hair. My hair that is crazy thick. Think about being outside with no hat on in 40 mile an hour dirty winds for hours and hours. Hubby called me "Sasquatch" when we finally got in the car. In the wind you couldn't really tell what my hair was doing, but once we sat in the car out of the wind! Holy Cow! My hair was still standing up all over the place like their was 40 mile an hour winds in the car.
Tangled Mess? OMG - it took three conditioner rinses before I could get my fingers through it.
Anyway, enough about me already. Let's get back to baseball. I think they tied for third place out of eighteen teams. Not bad for a league team playing with the select crowd.
That is it for baseball for us. I will miss it. I will not miss the scorching temps and crazy winds.
We wrapped up Father's Day showering Hubby with gifts and taking him out to eat. I cannot wait to show you a picture of him running in his freaky new running shoes.
The week got off to a blazing start with me working nine hours yesterday, had a tiny little meltdown where I was overwhelmed to the point that I almost cried. You don't cry at work, even if your office is in your own house. There is no crying is Subcontract Administration. I was beyond frustrated. It was not good and not getting better, so we packed up and went to see Kung Fu Panda 2. Cute movie!
One more tidbit and then I have got to get to work. Yesterday morning while walking with my girl Martha I told her I hated running and was pretty sure I never wanted to run again.
Do you know what she said?
She said "I will pick you up tomorrow morning and we will drive down to the trail and run a couple of miles. See how it is."
I'm all like "Was I speaking English when I said I never wanted to run again?? Does she need to turn up her hearing aid or something?"
Anyway, there she sat in front of my house this morning and dang if we didn't kick off the day with a 4.7 mile RUN walk this morning. We ran two miles. Haven't run in several weeks so I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't die.
I am ready for Tuesday! BRING IT ON!!!
Hope your day is spectacular!
So anyway, back to the whirlwind. They arrived safe and sound. Mer even beat the casino out of a little money in Shreveport. Hugs all around. We had a quick sandwich and then they said "Where's your list? What are we doing while we are here?"
My kitchen table, which was purchased secondhand by my parents in the 1960's was in dire need of a new paint job. I had painted it about 12 years ago and it was all chipped and grungy. It was beyond time for a facelift.
So we sanded. And then we sanded some more. Then we sanded just a bit more. And then sanded for a little while longer. It was really fun sanding the spindles on the chairs. There were so many of them. Plenty of fun for everyone. It also used up tons of sandpaper too!
The table was finally sanded enough and it was time to bring that baby in the house and put some new paint on it. As soon as Grandpa picked up his end of the table to carry it through the door, this little lizard fellow ran down his arm. Lizards running down your arm is not so good for your heart. Or for your foot if you drop the table on it. Grandpa remained calm and the little fellow scurried off. He's a champ that way.
SIDENOTE: I would have said Son of a *^%*(! I measured these *&^% panels three times to make sure they were right. What the &(%$ is going on?"
Did I mention that while at Lowe's we also picked up a new insert for our backdoor that has the mini-blind inside the glass. Mom had seen it in a friends house and when she described it to me I knew it was the perfect fix for us. We took down the heavy banging blinds that were on our door.
