Monday Musings

Happy Monday to you all!!!  Please read that far more perkily (is that a word) than I actually typed it.  Couldn't fall asleep until about an hour past my bedtime - thank you time change.  Then I woke up at 2 or so - thank you Jay and the stupid violent movie you were watching - and couldn't go back to sleep until 3:30ish.  I'm dragging today!

As suspected this weekend was crazy busy.  Friday night we ate dinner with the Sunday School class and got to meet a lot of new couples.  Due to lack of attendance (both theirs and ours) Jay and I hadn't had an opportunity to meet everyone.  Also, its nice to met everyone in a non-church environment.  I was a little worried about conversation topics of interest, as I am one of only 2 non mommy/pregnant women in the class.

Everything went okay (Jay said I talked a little too much about running, but I think they talked a little too much about Johnny's spit up so I guess we're even) until I got my salad.  I had to send the dressing back because they brought me ranch instead of the oil and vinegar I had requested.  Then I had to scrape off the cheese, crutons, and bacon bits.  It all went down hill from there.

"What you don't like bacon and crutons?"

Not wanting to draw attention to my calorie counting ways, I simply responded "I like them just fine."  Hoping that it would be dropped at that.

"What you're afraid it'll make you fat or something?"

Then someone else - "Oh, you're counting calories.  I use to do weight watchers but then once the kids came along it just takes too much time to plan..."

Which is exactly why I wasn't going to mention it.  I know how sensitive my sister is about stuff like that, and I didn't want to draw attention to my neurosis or make them think I am judging them.

Then it was on to Saturday and my cousin's baby shower - more people attended than my mother had planned for.  While there was plenty of food, seating was at a premium.  I was glad to hang out in the kitchen away from the crowd.

Saturday night we headed to the rental cabin that the Sunday school class had gotten for the weekend.  There were only a few couples left: the girls were upstairs scrapbooking while the guys played video games downstairs.  Since I'm not a scrapper, I just hung out and chatted with the girls until the pizza arrived.  Jay & I and another couple ended up being the only ones staying the night, but it was nice just to get away.

Sunday brought another baby shower and a few hours to work on the house.  Unfortunately I didn't get any moving stuff done because I was busy doing standard household cleaning (laundry, unloading the dishwasher, etc).  I'm not a fan of working on Sunday, but here lately it seems like that's the only time I get a moment.

Hope you guys had a great weekend - whatever that might mean for you!


  1. Sounds like your weekend was busy and fun.
    That is nice you could almost have the cabin to yourself - I don't know if that is good or if it would have been better with a big group but I like the idea.
    There is always so much going on isn't there!

  2. Wow, lots of baby showers. It sounds like you had a great weekend though.

  3. Too much talk about running!? That can't be possible :-) I hope you have a great week!

  4. Two baby showers in one weekend...that's a record. Busy weekend. No wonder it was hard to get up today. I didn't do that much this weekend and we still had problems waking up.

  5. Oh my gosh, I feel your pain. I went in for that "wonderful" annual check up, and I texted Kyle, "I am the only non-preggo one here." And when you don't have kids, you're interests ARE different. I went running with a friend yesterday, and for the full 30 mins, all we talked about WAS running, lol!! And we both LOVED it!

  6. I am not a fan of the judge-y eaters! I'm a nutritionist and when I grocery shop, of course I run into people from work or school or wherever. They ALWAYS look in my shopping cart and make snippy comments about whatever healthy foods I have in there. And the comments are said with this air like they are offended or something that I'm trying to eat healthy! HAHA! People are so weird!

  7. Sounds like fun, in spite of all the baby things going on around you! My daughter is going through the same thing and they want to wait a few years yet. I'm afraid she's got lots of baby stuff to hear in the next few years!

  8. whew, crazy weekend! People who HAVE to make comments about other peoples eating habits I mean, really. And it's happened to me all my life. I can't win if I eat healthily or if I indulge--someone STILL has to comment.

  9. Why is it anybody else's business what you eat/don't eat?! I think it's weird that people want to bring that up! What if you had some gross medical condition when you ate those things, and you didn't want to discuss it in front of the whole entire world?! Hmm...that could make for an interesting story next time!! ;)

  10. Wow, you had a super busy weekend! I can't stand when people notice what you're eating or not eating. Why do they have to question it? I mean, it that big of a deal that you're choosing to NOT eat the cheese and bacon on your salad? Then a conversation ensues around the topic of weight and it's uncomfortable for everyone. BLAH!!!


what up yo?
