Monday...I spent most of the day looking for places to put my IKEA finds and perusing the catalog I picked up at their store.
Tuesday...My friend TOM showed up and he brought his friend Migraine and Cranky.
Wednesday...I decided to train for a 5K race that I will be running in honor of my 39th Birthday. I spent the day (between cleaning and folding laundry) daydreaming of running. I put up the tent that I bought at IKEA. The kids love it! Best $10 I've spent this year.
Thursday...I walked 1.5 miles in the wind and got a freakin blister. In the morning, we went to the HAFB Air Show Open House at the Ogden Airport with our friends Monica, William and Kate. Monica and I had a lovely time
Mallory kept telling me she wanted to drive the airplanes and Alex wanted to leave immediately after we got there. I had to lure him with Scooby Snacks. Mallory was also drawn to the NAVY plane and I had to nip that in bud and tell her that she is going to West Point. GO ARMY, BEAT NAVY! The kids' and I had lunch at Doolittles Deli, they enjoyed a yummy wood-fired cheese pizza and I was a good girl and had a Pear & Gorgonzola Salad with candied Pecans. It was the best salad I've EVER had! Right before we left, we met the Mayor of Ogden!
After dinner, I went to a running store (all by myself!) and got a new pair of running shoes.
Friday...We went to Target to get Alex new swim trunks (5T) because he is getting too big for his britches and I started looking into online work opportunities because I reckon this kid will be eating me out of house and home before too long. Mallory didn't trust my memory...she fished the empty Scooby Snack box out of the the recycle bin and brought it with us so I wouldn't forget to buy more.
Alex decided that he only wanted to ride his big wheel in the garage so I set up my white plastic chair...Kate Gosselin style.
Saturday...I pulled a muscle in my neck on Friday and today I can't move my head or my arm. And I have a massive headache from crying my eyes out watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night. Alex is not enjoying swim lessons and refuses to get in the pool. I'm getting a massage this afternoon! YAY!
Have a great weekend!
