My Weekend...

My weekend was wonderful, as are most of my weekends.

-My presentation on Friday went wonderfully and not only did the ONLY intern want to work with me, but they want me to take my self esteem workshops more city wide and partner with TESSA during their high school and middle school presentations. So I will be doing the DOVE workshops and my own home grown presentations about self esteem. Very exciting! Of course Friday evening when I got home there were already quite a few people over at our house (that’s pretty usual for our home) so I decided due to my new found excitement I would attempt to drink away my feeling of sickness. Wow, was that a good plan. Saturday now reads…
-Saturday was spent in my PJ’s generally saying how awful I felt, the day did not include a shower or even a step outside.
-Sunday however I was back to my usual self waking up early to make some red Chili for our second annual Chili cook-off. This year it was held over at one of our friends house and due to it being my birthday Joe made everyone vote for me or he would slash their tires. While everyone didn’t vote for me I am absolutely sure I got some birthday votes, but I’ll take the trophy and they can challenge me next year. Joe was as always amazing and got me golf lessons, and we are going to Oliver tomorrow night. I have a passion for seeing anything live…imagine a life without do-overs and retakes. He also had an ice cream cake and party favors waiting at our friend’s house. While I was standing in their kitchen my youngest brother walked in and I just stared at him and said “well how the hell did you get here?” (keep in mind he’s 12). Sure enough in walk my parents! What a wonderful surprise…apparently Joe got on the phone with them and had my Mom enter the chili cook-off too. When I got back in the car I had an amazing signing rendition of Happy Birthday left on my cell phone by apparently an Indiana Choir (thank you guys!).
-Monday was work filled as always, but that’s life. Tadd and I did try out a new rib recipe for dinner which was amazing.
-Today…well we have our first game in our volleyball tournament tonight and it’s Biggest Loser night. Yahoo! I love that show even though I usually cry through most of it, but what else is new. Everyone on the show is just so exposed, I know when I workout I get to that excruciating tired spot and feel more vulnerable then I do in those reoccurring naked in front of the classroom dreams.

I knew you would like my lovely singing. Glad you had a great birthday! You are now older and wiser than Joe. Well, we always knew the latter.

And I just read your title correctly haha - that's good
