Golden Slumbers

There was no run or workout over the weekend, just a lot of running around and work to get things in gear for the party, then the clean-up after. The party was a success and thank goodness for those giant jumpy things that can fit a bunch of 3 and 4 year old kids in all at the same time, making them really tired, going to bed early, and making their parents really happy at bed-time.

We've also had some work done on the garage space, as in finishing up the drywall, texturing the walls and priming. We're turning the front garage into a temporary bedroom. DH and I will paint this week, then the guys come back next weekend to set ceramic tile.

This next week my goal is to run or work out each day, Monday through Saturday. Last week wasn't perfect, but I got something in. I also need to restart loggin in my calories on Fitday. After this weekend of pizza and cake, I'm feeling rather fluffy. I did have some minor break outs on my arms (from the cheese on the pizza) but not as bad as it could be. Perhaps keeping the water intake up helped.

It's been a busy weekend! I'm beat!

Happy Sunday!

Peace

Hi Irene,

thanks for stopping by my blog! Hillcrest is really great so far - so colorful - busy, but not too noisy!!!

Fitday? I love it!!! Such a good way to keep on track - seeing my numbers black on white helps me to focus.

Hope to see you out there some time;-)

Glad the party was a success!

Glad you didn't break out too bad from the cheese.

Good luck with the garage.

The Beatles - Abbey Road.

Good luck with your workouts and "fitday-ing" this week! :-)

Sounds like a lot of good things happening.

Dang. Miss Rachel beat me. Great song.

So jealous about the transformers cake. I want one!!! Did your grandson see the movie? We thought Brian might be too young for it in the theaters, but when it comes on DVD, we think he will really enjoy it.

Sounds like a good time all around! :)

Dangit, I knew this one too. Hey, Phil Collins did a cover of it on one of his early albums. Can I get partial credit?

I'll be at Road Runner Sports Saturday from 12 to 2 doing signups for the Balboa 8M. I've never done the course, but everyone says it's fun...and a little hard. (I put a map URL on my comments if you haven't checked lately.)

Steph,
Thanks for visiting! I hope we get to meet up for a run at some point!

Evelyne,
Thanks!!!

Rachel,
Winner! When I was in Jr, High School they had that album in Art class and played it every day...
Fitday always puts me back on track. I always think I'm doing better than I actually am. I guess putting in everything really heps me see how it really is.

Tom,
I hope this continues! Things are looking up!

Katie,
It was just the little transformer figurines, but Evan still thought it was cool. I think my daughter wants to wait until the Transformer movie comes out on DVD.

Paamela,
Yes it was!

Anne,
Okay, I'll give you credit! Winner! Thanks for the map and info. I just might show up at RRS.

I am looking for a Transformers cake in San Diego and saw you had one at a party - can you please tell me where you found it? Thank you! (angela@incitrio.com)
