Let me start this post off with what I woke up to this morning...
Flash back to 6:15 am, alarming going off, Michael has already been out of bed for 2 hours now and gone to work for one.... I wake up, say "yeah right, I'm not going to workout this early, especially on a Saturday" and I roll back over...
Well approximately 15 minutes later I wake to this little guy barking...
I violently turn on each light switch as I approach it saying, "HELLO?!", you know, what most normal people do when they first wake up in the morning. I made it downstairs, front door unlocked of course, I made it to the closet where the dog food is kept and the bathroom...I threw both of those doors open and screamed HELLO!? ... No one... I let the dogs out of their cages and watch to see if they'd go and find the intruder...
Well not to my surprise at all, Carson was just up and at em' early. He just wanted me to come down and say hello to him and give him food. Not to mention give his worrisome mother a HEART ATTACK....whew, we were safe! But now I am up at 6:30 on a Saturday, oh well, might as well start the homework.
The rest of my day consisted of meeting Miss Betsy Cooney and Vanna Armstrong for breakfast at Doodles, which sadly was not very good, except for the beignets I ordered!
After breakfast it was back to the books for a bit. Then it was time to meet up with Adrielle (my mentee)! I've been struggling for fun, different things that we haven't already done, to do with Adrielle, a 9 year old around Lexington. (any suggestions let me know!) I decided today we would go get our nails painted.
When I told Adrielle the plans she was SUPER PUMPED! So off we went in the chilly weather to the nail salon. She immediately knew she wanted a sparkly red color and picked one that reminded me of Dorothy's red slippers in the Wizard of Oz. She really did make a good choice, the color looked really pretty against her skin, and she got white hearts painted on her thumb nails. They looked super cute. I told her that her nails were ready for Valentines Day!

One thing that I must say about going to fitness centers is this: HOW DO MOST OF THE GIRLS THERE LOOK CUTE/ACCEPTABLE WHILE WORKING OUT AND I LOOK LIKE DEATH WARMED OVER??? These girls have their makeup on, hair pulled back all cute, their little black leggings and cute tanks on, barely with a drop of sweat on their bodies despite being on a elliptical for an hour while balancing a magazine on their machine.
I storm into the JC in a baggy tshirt, pale white legs, hair pulled back in a bun, frizzies sticking every which-a-way, hop on a treadmill for about 4 miles, and come off looking like I just had the worst experience ever, shirt is totally soaked through, hair is definitely doing even more crazy things, face is a shade of red that hurts the eyes and I always seem to have the gross stuff on my lips that continues to create itself after I get off the machine. I go to stretch on the mats with the other girls, all pretty and dry, and when I stand up to leave you can see where my body was because there's a big nasty sweat mark that I immediately try and wipe down before anyone else sees. Am I the world's grossest girl?! It's pretty hard to disagree with! haha! Oh well, what can I do?!
One other note for the day: I decided to use my Kentucky "country" roots to fix a reoccurring problem in our house. Carson, the pup, has been tearing out the stuffing in his bed everyday. Well the real quick hillbilly fix to this problem was obvious. Since we don't own a needle and a thread I decided the best way to cover the hole he was using to pull out the stuffing was to, oh you know, duct tap it! AND it worked, he didn't touch the bedding all day, no green fluffy padding floating around our house, it was wonderful!
|duct tape hole...SUCCESS!|
