Today is the Final Season of Game of Thrones. I am a devoted fan. I have read the books (and am devastated that the written series hasn’t been completed) and am current with the show. It’s honestly the only television show I watch and I have no idea what I will do when it ends.
Sunday – rest
On Sunday morning, we spent some quiet time chilling out. Hufflepuff got a bath and we cleaned out her habitat. Exciting times. It was nice just having a home day.
Monday – 6.5 miles, running
Monday came around and we started it off with a run. Yay!
I had a bunch of work to catch up on, and in the evening, a bunch of us went to the PTA President’s house for dinner and to stuff baskets for our upcoming basket raffle.
It was a fun night and we accomplished a lot.
Tuesday – rest
I didn’t have much to do, other than a PTO meeting at little man’s new middle school. I was invited to check it out, in the event that I want to continue volunteering.
I’ll probably continue volunteering.
That evening, I attended a preview event at the new Odd Birds Loft venue in St. Augustine, with one of the co-owners of the St. Augustine Moms Blog. It was a lovely evening with craft cocktails, Latin-inspired hors d’oeuvres. and live music. I can’t wait to check it out as a date night.
Wednesday – 7 miles, running
Even though I was out a little later than normal, I was up and at ’em for a run.
I had to turn down yoga because I had been out almost every night that week, but it was ok to take a little break.
Thursday – rest
I spent most of the day Thursday prepping for Scouts. I had two more kids to get through rank advancement and I hoped to use the den meeting to make it happen.
We watched the SpaceX rocket launch and then got down to work. It felt great to know that my entire den has achieved rank and 10 of the 11 Scouts are choosing to cross over to a Troop.
Friday – 7 miles, running
First things first: a nice run.
Then I had to proctor a test at school, grab lunch with a friend, and head right back to the school to help set up for the evening.
The school was hosting a student art show, music performance by the Music Makers, a lip sync battle by the teachers, and the basket raffle. It was an incredible night with tons of community support and it was a very successful fundraiser. It’s going to be hard to leave this team.
Oh, and we won a really cool private farm tour and a month of unlimited classes at 9Round! We are going to take a free class first and then determine if one or both of us is going to invest in a membership.
Saturday – rest
It was nice being able to sleep in a bit.
The boys headed off to a special basketball practice since little man had a bye week, and I met K and B for the Hopping Through The Store event at Declaration Co in downtown St. Augustine.
I have never been, and it was the cutest little shop with plenty of great gifts, piece of clothing and decor. There was prosecco and an adult Easter egg hunt (I scored two pair of adorable earrings!) and it was a great morning.
Later that day, some friends came over for pizza, and it was nice to just hang at home and have a casual dinner.
And so it was a solid week, again. Plenty of running, no real cross training.
I was ok on hydration, and did well with reading.
We did try a new recipe, but it wasn’t a winner. Usually, the Publix Aprons meals are a quick and easy sure thing, but not so this one. The pork itself was good, but the rest just didn’t come together quite right, for me. The boys even admitted it tasted better in the sample at the store. Live and learn.
