Weekend Wrap-Up and Crazy Talk

We had a pretty uneventful weekend. Which is nice sometimes when these summer weekends seems to fill up with plans so quickly! So a quick recap and then a more serious topic...

Friday: We went to our favorite hibachi grill for dinner since we had a Groupon. It was so yummy (as it always is!). But I remembered why we don't go too often.. it's so expensive! But definitely a great place for a birthday or group dinner.

Saturday: We went to the pool in the early afternoon for a bit. Then we ran to Petsmart and other places to get some things for Piper. She desperately needed some new chew toys and blankets for her crate. That evening we took her to the dog park and then got some milk shakes. Mmm.

Sunday: Pretty boring day with lounging on the couch and laundry! We took Pipe for a run in the afternoon. I had gotten on MapMyRun to plan out our route before hand since we haven't run in this neighborhood before. I love that app, but wish it would give me GPS directions through my headphones as I am running if I uploaded the route beforehand. I did that hoping it would tell me, but apparently it doesn't.

So, I wrote the course on my hand. Pretty bootleg. But, alas, we still got lost. Tim was running way ahead (as usual) and took a wrong turn, so I did, and we were totally off. But, we got in our 2 miles so it was fine.

Also, we realized we are REALLY out of shape...

 Sooo.. more running this week!

And now on to another topic that I just felt compelled to write about this morning...

Have you ever had days where you are just really insecure? Maybe it's insecure in your job, or your relationship, or something else. But you just find that your confidence level is low and you're worry about all kind of things? I'm kind of having one of those days. I just feel a little... off. The most frustrating part is that I have no idea where it's coming from nor can I pinpoint a cause. I just have such a strange feeling that something isn't right and it's got me worried. And then I wonder if I'm just paranoid and it's nothing.

Now I realize I officially sound like a crazy person. I guess I'm just wondering if it's normal to have off-days where you don't feel totally on-your-game but can't think of a reason why. And if so, can you just bounce back and be your normal secure self again or do you have to search for the reason you're uneasy? Is it woman's intuition kicking in or just a temporary span of insanity?

Sorry for the heavy topic so early Monday morning! Not cool, I know. Have a great day!

P.S. 11 days and counting until we move out of the dungeon and into the new house!

  1. I love hibachi! Looks yummy =)

  2. Looks like you had a great weekend! Congrats on the new house!!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend, I wish we had another day between Saturday and Sunday!

  4. hey! i'm new around your blog. I haven't gotten to read much! such a RANDO question. do you have a dog & a cat?? i'm wondering how they get along, as i have two cats (crazy cat lady here) and am entertaining the idea of getting a small pup! -lauren

    1. Please excuse me but I love getting involved in anything animal related. I have a dog and 2 cats and for the most part they get along fine. My dog is very in your face but my cats are old and smart so they do a stand up job of avoiding her when she's awake. She has however gotten smacked from time to time when she gets out of line and that's has made cohabitation possible. Good luck!

  5. Sounds like somebody needs a Garmin! And more importantly, I find myself randomly insecure often. You're not alone!

  6. Sounds like you guys had a fun weekend, even getting lost out on the run!
    I've had off days where I felt really insecure for no apparent reason, I think its normal. Just have to find something to get you out of that funk :)
