Basically I didn’t get to the updates to the blog that I wanted to. There just really wasn’t enough time.
And I pre-apologize for the “here’s what I did this weekend” post.
I did sit down Friday night to try and do some work on the template, but it proved to be quite an undertaking and I did not have the time to spend 6+ hours over the course of the weekend to make it happen.
Though keeping with my lot in the house, I spent the majority of the night Friday cleaning. (mind you I’m not a really clean person) I cleaned the bathroom (oh boy) and the kitchen, including the kitchen floor, (which by the way at this point is already starting to get dirty again).
I actually got to bed at a decent hour on Friday night and then woke up, on my own accord (amazing), Saturday morning and took my car over to the shop for an oil change before Bill and I headed out to Fuller for an intramural volleyball game. After a little BBQ there, Bill and I headed back home and decided to go on a run. Why after a morning of Volleyball and 3 or 4 hotdogs??? Don’t know.
*you must note that I have not run any substantial distance in the last 5 months or so.
We planned on running about 6.5 miles (since Bill is training for a Marathon). After about 1.5 I hit a wall. Crap! I’m such a lazy slob. At that point I realized that I was slowing Bill down and told him that I’d take a shortcut and meet him. Basically long story short is that I did make it about 5 miles, at a slower pace than I’d liked, but not to bad for not running for a long time.
After getting home and taking about 15,000 pills to numb the pain. I planned on spending another quiet night at home, the roommies asked me if I wanted to play in a Magic Tournament we were hosting at our house. (For those of you who don’t know what Magic is, it is a nerdy card game of the likes of D&D; (that’s Dungeon and Dragons) or Pokemon.) Having not much else to do, I said yes and in turn spent my evening playing cards, until 4:20 in the morning, in which I finished a really long game against Carlos. We then headed down to LA to go to the Pantry, a restaurant staffed by ex-cons, good eats. Finally got home around 6:30am and went to bed only to wake at 9:30 to head to church to sing in our Gospel choir.
After trying to sing, since my voice was hurting after being up all night, Jamie Lofgren and I had to prep to host our annual church talent show. After crafting many bad jokes and gags, the show was great and well received. I headed out for some late dinner and finally made it home and asleep by around 10:30.
All in all a great weekend. I only wish I had Mondays off since it felt like I pulled a whole other work day on Sunday.
