Welcome back! I haven’t done a Weekend in Review post in a while so I thought I would go ahead and do one this fine Monday.
With nothing on the books for this last weekend, we took advantage of it. Normally I don’t work on Friday’s but we had employee appreciation event so I decided to finagle my schedule to make it fit. I was out of there by 11:30am and headed to the gym. That night, we didn’t do much but eat some dinner and watch Captain America:Civil War. I really liked the movie although it was quite long. It made me laugh at quite a few points in the movie.
Saturday morning, I headed to they gym to get in a good run and a little lifting. Since my half marathon I haven’t been running much. Even with running less, I got in a good 4 miles 🙂 After that, I hit up the grocery store for weekly supplies and headed home. After a while, we headed to South Minneapolis to see Bill’s sister and husband and their new puppy Wally.
He is a maltipoo and seriously so adorable. He is only 8-9 weeks old and weighs about 1 pound. We didn’t even get to see our dog this little! We ended up sitting outside for a bit and he ran around for some time. After going back into the house, he crashed and wanted nothing to do with us. Puppies need their sleep! After some dinner, we headed home and decided to head out to a local bar. It was pretty fun and after a couple of drinks, we headed back home.
Sunday was a pretty chill day. We went to the dog park for a little bit to let Mya run around and drain some energy.
Then around 4 pm, both Bill and I were starving. We have a coupon book that featured a good Mexican place so we decided to check it out. Well we got there and realized we had been there before but just didn’t pay attention to the actual name of it! It was good food and we will definitely be back! After that, we headed to DSW to get Bill some new birthday shoes. Earlier this year, Mya chewed up Bill’s favorite shoes so for his (golden) birthday I told him I would buy him a new pair. He ended up going with the same shoe, just a different color. He also ended up getting another version of the shoe in more of a khaki style. I told him they would be perfect for Mexico and he was sold! Then an early bed time to catch up on some sleep lost on Saturday night.
Taking a step back
Why this title? Because everyone needs the reminder to take a step back and reevaluate everything once and a while. 2 summers ago were really hard for us. I am not going to go into details because #privacy but just know that it was hard. And ya know what, I never really dealt with the things that were going on. I know that I just haven’t been myself or felt like me but I could never really pin point why. I thought maybe getting back to the gym would help, it didn’t. I though getting married would help, but it didn’t. Maybe getting a dog would help, but it didn’t. I found myself so frustrated with everything. I’m always tired and can never seem to just get out of a slump. Maybe a couple of days here and there but not for a long period of time. If you have ever felt like this, you are not alone. I have talked with people and have found that there are more people out there dealing with something similar that you realize. It is absolutely okay with taking a step back to figure everything out. Especially if a lot of time has passed and you just can’t seem to get it together. So here’s to taking a step back, getting it together and figuring my ish out.
Bye for now!
