Wow… so hard to believe the weekend is already over! It’s been a busy weekend!
Mike and I went out with Mike’s boss Friday night, and had a lot of fun… we were actually out until almost 3am… and I wasn’t even tired… crazy! 🙂 Despite staying out so late, I got up reasonably early to get my 12 mile run in Saturday morning. It was such a beautiful day for running! Sunny and chilly. I ran along a new trail I haven’t tried before, and there were Maple trees with red and gold leaves lining the path… so beautiful!
This picture actually doesn’t really do the path justice… I waited until I couldn’t see anyone on the trail ahead of me before taking a picture because I didn’t want to look like a weirdo who’s trying to snap pictures of people on her iPhone. The trail wound around by Husky stadium, so I also got to capture that in a photo, if anyone is interested.
On my way back home, I got really thirsty because, as beautiful as the Burke Gilman trail was, it didn’t seem to have any water fountains. Fortunately, I ran across a water fountain at a random park on the way home. I definitely drank up before continuing! 🙂
I got home to find Piper lying on her very-special, most-favorite-ever towel. That’s right… a towel. She would rather lie on an old, no-longer-soft bathroom towel than on my soft comforter.
In case you’re wondering why I have an old bath towel on my bed… that really is her special towel… I wasn’t kidding. She likes having it on the bed. Yes, I may spoil Piper too much. Especially since I still haven’t gotten rid of the two foot square box in the middle of my floor because she likes it. *Sigh*
Mike and I went to Southcenter mall later in the day looking for ear buds. I left Mike in the Apple store looking at headphones and told him I’d go get a hot tea and be right back. Umm… let’s just say I got a little distracted. When Mike called me 15 minutes later asking where I was, I was in the middle of Charlotte Russe with my arms full of clothing. Hey, I don’t get the opportunity to go to Charlotte Russe very often. 😉 We didn’t get home until almost 10pm, and I was exhausted. I pretty much passed out and got a great night’s sleep (aided by the hour of sleep we gained last night!).
Today Mike fixed my shower drain and something with his toilet handle. It was definitely a “fix-it” day. Remember how I “fixed” my backed up shower drain by indiscriminately pouring a whole bottle of liquid plumber down it? Yeah. Well, apparently I didn’t do a very good job of fixing it, because it had started to back up again. Mike worked carefully with it, and got it completely cleared out… I can actually see all the way down the drain now and it doesn’t just look like a scary mass of hair, mildew, and scum! 🙂 Yea for Mike! And yea for me, who made him dinner while he messed with the drain… Cheesy Chicken and Rice casserole. I actually modified the recipe fairly extensively… mostly because I got uncondensed cream of chicken soup instead of condensed and regular rice instead of instant rice. I never claimed to be able to read directions. But it turned out well, so I don’t mind. 🙂
I’m trying to make an order to the Body Shop and get free shipping, but it’s pretty difficult. I have a 30% off coupon to use, but I have to spend a certain amount of money to get free shipping. Every time I think I’m spending enough money to get free shipping, the price drops too low after I apply my 30% off coupon. Now I’m to the point where I literally am exactly 30 cents short of qualifying for free shipping. Wouldn’t you think they could just give me the free shipping since I’m within a dollar? Or just charge me 30 extra cents for one of my items or something? I might give up on the whole thing soon, because this is becoming less of a virtual shopping trip and more of a puzzle. (Can you add up all the items in your cart such that their total, less 30% of their total is greater than the free shipping qualifying line?) It’s Sunday night, and I just want bath and skin products… I don’t want to solve a math problem around shipping costs.
Mike, after his fix-it successes, fell sound asleep on my bed. Piper, always up for a nap, joined him. 🙂
Well… Mike’s rest was well-deserved anyway. 🙂
The weekend just flew by! I hope everyone else had a great weekend… anything fun to share? 🙂
