Unexpected blessings


here in Dallas this week for cochlear listening camp. Love this place. We are at American girl this evening – actually waiting for dolls to finish their glamour treatments – hair washed and styled, new outfits, new stuff…

okay, that was a few days ago on my iphone.  now, wednesday, i am waiting…to go pick up my girlies and for my son to arrive from home – he’s flying in and spending the last part of this week with us and then he will drive home with me and the girls.  we are all very excited, but mostly, i am excited because this time with him will certainly make up for not having him with me in San Antonio…

it’s strange to have this time alone during the summer.  i am rested, worked out, showered, and even have make-up on!  weird…i usually hit the aforementioned quickly, but this week has been leisurely and that, i ain’t used to!

i have chunked up my time this week, too.  i used to feel like i had to cram everything in to every day – where we are staying is right in the middle of any shop you could possibly want.  of course, there is nothing i really need.  okay, yes, i needed new bras 🙂  and pj’s.  and i do love running skirts.  and, really, can you have too many workout bras or shirts?  i think not.  okay, the one thing i was really after are these blingy flip flops i’ve been seeing around.  are you kidding?  they are to-die-for cute.  found ’em!  and guess what else?  nothing i bought was full price. i don’t pay full price for anything except food.  clothes?  forget it.  i bought a running skirt in seaside for $54.00.  full price.  that was the first time in forever, it seemed, that i payed full price.  i do love that skirt. 

anywho…i have been quiet and prayerful, too, this week.  finished my novena.  trying to download another rosary app – my other one is on the computer at home and i found one that is audible the whole way through.  good reviews, too.  but it’s staying in ‘waiting’ mode.  yes, i get that.  i’m waiting.  come on, God, help me out here…

me and the girls have been having a blast here!  we have done american girl, the mall, rainforest cafe…there’s more to come.  we are going to medeival (sp?) times, too…love that place!

fitness – been chunking that too.  feeling like spending time with one thing instead of jumping around.  monday – bike; tuesday, treadmill hills, and today, :30 elliptical & :30 bike.  yesterday kicked my butt.  i love trying out new programs on machines & the one i pressed said, “random”.  really????  cuz i would rename it, “get ready to run your a$$ off at ridiculous inclines!”  no complaints.  i love a challenge.  i only got a few miles in, but let me tell you, sweat was flying!  my quads were saying, “huh???” 🙂  it was great.

oh, and unexpected girlie time for me.  didn’t see that coming.  bloated, crampy, yeah.  it does explain, however, how come i couldn’t resist ben & jerry’s cherry garcia frozen yogurt on sunday night…explains how i lifted both my daughters (separately), pretty much into the target ice cream freezer because the last pint was soooo far back in the case…please, target, don’t have a security camera – i had my 10 year old crammed into that tiny space at the top, reaching her skinny, little angelina ballerina arms to get my yogurt!  funny.  sad.  true.  🙂

okay, that’s probably it on my end for now. 

peace out…
