End Of The Week Roundup: 10/12/12

Most of the beginning of the week and as much of the weekend as I was able to fit in involved in finishing the setup. It was preparation for Tuesday which was Leah’s and my first wedding anniversary. We had a lazy morning together which led into our gift opening. The first year traditionally is based on paper and we both are suckers for our own take on tradition and we were both happily surprised with what we got each other. (I almost got her to tear up which is a feat in itself!) After we lounged about and played with our dog before going downtown. In the city we went to Trattoria 10 for dinner which was 2 blocks from the Bank of America Theater where we went to see Kinky Boots. After that it was to home for a slice of our wedding cake.

Life

  • Leah and I celebrated our first anniversary and went out to dinner Trattoria 10 and to see Kinky Boots downtown
  • Started running again after a 2 week break and foolishly thought I should ramp it up again past what I was doing after not drinking water all day… yea that only worked through half of it before I went back to the old routine. Not sure if I need more water or ramped it up too much
  • My health insurance is attempting to screw me. I’ll leave it at that as I feel there is a long uphill battle in front of me at this time
  • I believe we’ve picked our new deck contractor, now just to finish making everything official

Projects

  • No real changes – its been a busy week!

Media

  • Went to see Kinky Boots

My Writing

  • 400ish words on a short story, nothing past that

End Of The Week Roundup: 08/17/12

Life

  • Leah and I went out with Margret and Brenna for a birthday at the Raffenettis. Mmm tacos, cola, and booze
  • After Leah went out with her crafty group on Sunday we cleaned out the garden of tomatoes and some of the peppers that were ready for eating
  • I made Leah dinner again. Chicken, Green beans, and Rice (which doesn’t count since we have a rice cooker.) Lets see if I can keep this up and try for a meal a week?
  • Ali has decided she wants to try to sleep in our bed almost daily again, and we I have caved far more then we I should have
  • Also I’ve been keeping up on this whole running thing. Every other day is a mile and a half+ now. I still don’t feel ‘good’ after the workout but I no longer feel ‘bad’ after the workout
  • Work has been nuts trying to train 3 people while being short staffed and having what has probably been our busiest week of all time
