Friday, after work and then much dilemma, I went to dinner with my dad. He had been stressing all day over my sisters car being in the shop and them needing some $500 part that they did not have in stock. Thankfully my dad is a man of many connections and his old friend Richard went above and beyond. Their last resort was the Volvo dealership and if they did not have the part it would be Wednesday before the part got it. Thankfully they had it.
When I got home from dinner it was a little after 7 and I went for a run. Let's see... I had not run in two days. So I ran my 1.6 and felt fine, not out of breath or tired just fine. Go home, knock around, watch tv, then go to bed. This is where the problem steps up. Restless Leg. I get in bed and my legs are super sore, wiggly, feel like I am still walking... So I get up and take 3 aspirin. Get back in bed. It continues. I fall asleep then my legs wake me up. Frustrating! Finally my aunt hears me moaning and rustling around and heats up this long bean bag type thing and puts it on my legs. Ahhhh..... Zzzzzz's.
Saturday consisted of cleaning house and Lexie barking at the vacuum cleaner and mop all day. When she was not barking at the cleaning tools she was at the front door barking at the people walking by. During Easter weekend a local church has people walk miles "in Christ' shoes" carrying a wooden cross on wheels upon their shoulders. So of course her ferociousness barked at them. My aunt said "Lexie, hush! Those are church people" and she stopped, returned to the living room and resumed doing this:
She really lays like that. Rolls over on her back all on her own and stares at your with those puppy dog eyes. "Peez Scwatch and Wub Mah Belly, Mommee"
I ended up going to Target and the grocery store later on saturday and barely made it out of there cause my lower back was hurting so bad. So I canceled the run.
Easter was great. I went with my family to church and the service was great. Church was super crowded. We came back and had lunch at our house. Of course I got some Easter goodies.... money and clothes and Reese's eggs and York Peppermint Patties. But one little girl had a very good Easter :)
"Did tha Bunny bring dis?"
Two Reese's eggs and a cupcake later I was feeling gluttonous. I gave up sweets for lent and really did not miss them that much but still could not resist a few treats. My aunt was like "Be careful, you haven't had anything like this in 40 days... your body could have a reaction to it." I did... my stomach swelled and I felt like poo. So 2 hours later I got my @$$ off the couch and went for a run. It was painful, not gonna lie. I felt so lethargic but just kept pushing on. I felt this unbearable heaviness at times and even prayed "Dear God, Please let me finish this run without passing out or puking... just let me finish it. I am not a quitter." So then I did and of course felt fabulous. Turns out it was my best time yet!
The Reese's eggs are going to be out of sight and out of mind for awhile. 2 was enough! Hope everyone had a great Easter
