My weekend officially started Thursday night when a friend invited me to go see Oleanna. Despite having many friends who are involved in our local theater community I do not go to performances nearly as much as I’d like to. I’m glad I went to this one as it was one of the best plays I’ve ever seen! I had no idea what it was about when he asked me to go, but it ended up focusing on a professor and student who have both been negatively impacted by the education system. Extremely engaging dialogue and the actors were phenomenal (not at all biased since one is a friend of mine!)
Friday morning I woke up to utter chaos on my facebook feed. It was snowing in Pensacola.
By snow, I mean ice/sleet, but the closest we’ve seen here in over 10 years.
It really didn’t seem all that cold to me out, but I’m sure that’s thanks to my recent trip to Chicago. You really can’t call 30-something degrees freezing when you’ve actually been in freezing, single digit, temperatures.
That afternoon I worked from Panera and grabbed lunch at Fresh Market. I’m trying to curb my sushi/Kombucha habit since it can get so expensive but it’s just so damn good! #WeAllHaveOurVices
Saturday morning I woke up and did not feel like running. At all. It was cold and dreary out and the thought of running outside made me want to never leave my bed. I asked my Twitter family to give me some encouragement and they delivered! I hopped in my car and headed to the gym to do my 8 miles on the treadmill. Horrible idea (although running in the warm weather and watching the news was nice.) My legs were killing me on Sunday. I didn’t think running on the treadmill would be that different from running outside. After the gym I picked up some groceries for the week. Those Late July chips were gone by the end of the day. Going to make the Udi’s pizza this week. Haven’t tried it before so I hope it’s good!That night I met up with some friends downtown. One of which I hadn’t seen in almost 4 years, and another who I haven’t seen in a year (we’ve developed this pattern of hanging out once a year for the last few years. Last time it was before the double bridge run, which is what I’ll be running next weekend!) It was great to catch up with everyone, see a few other friends out, and go to some places I hadn’t been to in ages (like Seville.) The guys I was hanging out with are friends with the owner of Mimi’s Bistro on the go who I got to meet. It was bizarre since I just read about him in the news earlier that week thanks to this big food truck fight our city has going on. I stuck to my two glass of wine max but did partake in a shot and I’m pretty sure that’s what put me over the edge. I just do not handle liquor well! I spent most of Sunday morning on the couch napping, watching tv, and eating garbage food. I finally forced myself to clean the house, food prep, and go outside for a walk. I’m so glad I did as it was absolutely gorgeous out!
What are you looking forward to most this week?
