Weekend Update

Is it hot in here, or am I just having mid-life night sweats and hot flashes??

Oh, it's all three. Nice.

Don't know what the weather is like where you are, but baby, it's hawt here. I'm not complaining, though. I'm reserving all my complaints for January-March of 2011.

Friday: Worked during the day. Shopped for something to wear to my multi-year Facebook reunion on Saturday. Did not find anything. Except a really good smoothie at a little place in the mall.

Saturday: Ran a long run. Felt good. Then I did a little housework and got ready for the reunion. Went to the reunion at 5 pm to hand out name tags and take money. I was so distracted there that I did that job for maybe 3 people, and then the hosts had to take over, but that was OK, because you know as hosts they didn't have enough to do.

Got reacquainted with many people, missed many others. It was nice, and I laughed a lot. Not crazy about my pics there, which I have no control of in the sense of people posting them on Facebook, of course.

I wish to heaven I had not lined my lower lids. Why I did this, I do not know because I never do. As a result, I look like a raccoon with a name tag stuck in my armpit.

Sunday we went to a local event called "Ribfest," where I enjoyed BBQ chicken, grilled corn on the cob, peanut coleslaw and a big old waffle cone full of butter pecan ice cream. Passed on the deep-fried pie & deep-fried cheeseburgers, though. Too early to start storing up fat for winter energy. That's next month.

Today is Monday, and upon coming into work, I realized I had a gyno appt. at 10:30. My, what a pleasant surprise!!!

School starts this week on Wednesday.

I should probably go to the grocery since I've only gone twice since we came back from Florida on July 10.

Ok, that's the riveting update from here. Be sure to tune into tomorrow if you are a Random Dozen fan; it starts again, just like school! Let's get "reunited," friends!

Eww..what a 'fun' surprise! Well, at least you didn't have to dread it for long. LOL

It's hot here too. And yes, I have a fan pointed just at me...and that is besides the ceiling fan! LOL Hubs has an extra blanket. But it is HAWT here too. In the One-oh-somethings all this week AND last week. Sa-weet. Or maybe sa-weat would be more like it!

Sounds like you had fun! Your "raccoon eyeliner" story reminds me of seeing a group of church-folk outside of church. In jeans! Always seems so funny! But noone notices my jeans... I wear them to church all the time :o) Ah well... guess you can't take the youth out of the youth group leaders :o)

I was worried you were sick when there wasn't a post first thing this morning.

Can't believe y'all are already starting school this week. And some places started today. We still have two more weeks.

Your photo Is great!
you do not look like a raccoon!
lovely smiles!
so what if the nametag is slightly under/near your armpit!
loved the post..
and yes..
it is hot.. that's why it is called summer and not winter because everyone knows it is cold in the winter!
thanks for the smiling start to my week..

You made me laugh today...Funny happening are great for the soul..

Have a Blessed One!

Lou said...

I tend to look a bit like a raccoon with my lower lids lined also! Too funny!

Love your blog. Any blog with the mention of a second cup of coffee in it's title is top notch in my book. :)

Hope you're staying cool this week. It's stinking hot here, too!


Susanne said...

Deep fried cheeseburgers? Oy, that's a heart attack waiting to happen. That would stay on my hips for decades to come.

The reunion sounds fun.

Melanie said...

ahhhh yes. night sweats and name tags...i don't either one.

Jewel said...

I know all about those "aren't they hotflashes or is it just really hot" thingys you are suffering with, Linda!!! :-)
AND that last comment made me think of that old song.."Reunited...and it feels so good..." I don't remember who sang it though. I'm gonna go google it!!
See you tomorrow for RD preview!!! Yayyyy!!!

Betty said...

Deep fried pie? Never heard of it. Must be good though.
I´ll be there for Wednesday´s RD. Can´t wait!

"Just Me - NC Beth" said...

Hot here too!! And I just can't stand it either!!

And you do NOT look like a raccoon!!!


Brenda Susan said...

You don't look bad with under liner. I've never even tried it! Is a "Facebook Reunion" the same as a high school reunion?

Angie said...

I think it's hot everywhere. I'd rather complain now than through Jan-March, but to each their own.

Looking forward to the Random Dozen tomorrow.
