Weekly roundup, plans, and pictures

Last week, I didn't really have a plan. I kind of intended to do what my body felt like it could do.

Apparently, that was not much. My ankle is being shaaaaady. I tried the stupid bike in the gym, and that was... okay. It was boring. I got sweaty. It'll do, I guess.

So, my original schedule for this week was going to be:
Monday: Suck Less
Tuesday: 3 miles, easy
Wednesday: Suck Less
Thursday: 3 miles, easy
Friday: Suck Less
Saturday: 4 miles, easy

It's looking more like:
Monday: Suck Less?
Tuesday: Birthday Cake for #2
Wednesday: Suck Less? Yoga?!
Thursday: Bike of Boredom?
Friday: Suck Less??
Saturday: Run/Bike of Boredom, whichever I can take

I'm all registered for Corona del Mar 5K on June 4th, where I intend to smoke my competition (aka, my friend's husband). Well, that *was* the intention, but The Ankle? Shaaaady.

Anyway, lest I be all pouting and whining, my weekend was pretty fun!

Gabby started Delayed Intensification (DI) on Friday with a BANG. 4 types of chemo, a lumbar puncture under sedation... and was all smiles when I got home and she showed off her Hello Kitty sunglasses :D

I would have been melted into a puddle of woe-is-me.

I went shopping ALL BY MYSELF on Saturday, to the farmers market, the magical Ross by my house, and Sprouts - my three favorite places to be. I almost picked up this fuschia prom dress....

But I refrained. I'm still not sure why, it's stunning and I need it. I'll wear it everywhere.

I wound up with this much more practical (aka, BOOOOORING) slate blue number..


Mother's Day got me this card from #2... I *am* a good typer.

We spent the day shopping and wandering Orange County, and came home with... a car that drives on walls and the ceiling...


Had a super late lunch, so we had dessert for dinner, because I'm REALLY working for that Mother of the Year award.


And I made a ginormous, ugly, REALLY good chocolate cake for Tuesday.

Phew. Happy Monday!


  1. Awesome weekend...and you TOTALLY need the prom dress!

  2. I need details on that car!!

  3. That car is AWESOME!

    I don't think the blue dress is boring - i really like the neckline. Although the pink is pretty awesome =).

  14. I like both dresses! The blue I could wear to work. I think you need to go back and get the pink one. Not to enable you...IJS.

    I'm so mad you took a pic of your daughter in time out. LOL! Good memories for her to look back on: "...and this is when you showed your azz in the Target..." LOL! :P

    and the hot tub crap- it's so true. if you just STAY there, people will hate you, but it's worth it.

  16. Rockin' sunglasses!
    You NEED that fuschia dress. Seriously NEED it!!

    I've weenied out of running - I think. SO, I'm going to do a work out that involves my upper body. You motivated me to do that with all of your sucking less. Woohoo - thanks!
