Little Details

Guys. I am in such a funk. It's not pretty. I don't really know what to do about it, either. For one, I am SO stinking tired. I have been getting up at 6:00am and working out most mornings, and it is exhausting me! I thought working out was supposed to make you feel better. I am still waiting for that high to kick in. However, I am not giving in. I know that if I just keep making myself get up and go to the gym, I will eventually see results.

I think I need adult nap time. I try sometimes to take a nap on my lunch hour, but let's face it - I rarely get a true lunch hour when I can leave and not have a million other things that need to be done. Yesterday I had to run to the grocery store. The day before, I had to run to the Dollar Store. Add to that, I can never quite get out of work when I am supposed to, and I end up running out of time because I have an appointment/court scheduled.

In other news, this past weekend I was invited for the first time to my husband's family annual "girls weekend." Twelve of us drove up to Alton, IL for a haunted ghost tour. Unfortunately, no ghosts showed up so it was really a 4 hour bus ride around the town. But whatevs. We went to a bar & grill afterwards, and everyone got a little tipsy. Let me just say, I never realized how funny some of my in-law family was. I think I almost peed myself laughing more than once.

We also stopped (going there and coming home) at a little town called Kimmswick. I am officially obsessed. We ate at the Blue Owl, which has the most amazing array of dessert ever, on Saturday. On Sunday, we had more time to look around the little shops. I snagged FOUR new garden flags (my new obsession) and some other random trinkets. We ate lunch Sunday at The Dough Depot, which had the best pretzel rolls I have ever tasted.

It was such a fun & funny weekend. I have not laughed that hard in a very long time! I can't wait for the next trip, although I vote that we don't ghost hunt on a Greyhound bus. I think the ghosts figured out we were coming. Ha!
