Something rare happened this weekend. Something that will make me sound mean but I promise I'm not. This Saturday? I got to kick Jared out of the house for a few hours and have the home all to myself. And it was glorious!
Now before you go start thinking I'm an awful wife, just know that it's nothing personal and I didn't actually kick Jared out. He was playing in his work softball tournament all day, so when he left the house that morning I was all too happy to send him off with his water bottle and snacks for the day. I never, ever get alone time at home so it was certainly welcomed.
I spent my day scrubbing bathrooms, doing laundry, even writing a few blog posts… all to the tunes of Katy Perry on Pandora, of course. I just can't seem to get stuff done when Jared is home because I really just want to hang out with him! See? I'm nice after all ;)
After a productive day at the house it was off to run a couple errands and then watch my man tear it up on the ball field. I love that a group of random guys can just get together and play a sport for the day… why don't girls do that more?! Not fair! His team got to play two games in the tournament and I had fun watching and cheering Jared on.
Sunday we celebrated a family birthday and tried to get a little pool time in, but the weather wasn't cooperating too much. The guys all played some competitive pool frisbee while I wrapped myself in the largest towel I could find and just tried to stay dry and warm. No suntan for me this day!
I spent a lot of time reading this weekend too. I've started reading some nutrition and health type of books in addition to my usual novel-reading, and I must say, I'm loving it! Obviously we all know the basic stuff about eating right and exercising, but until you read a book describing the actual science and facts behind what those things are DOING to your body? It really doesn't hit you quite as hard. I'm hoping that by reading up on what all that "crap" is actually doing to me, it'll keep me even more motivated to treat this body right. We only get one, after all!!
