What We Did Last Weekend - Bad Contractors and Baseball

I was flying solo on Friday night, since Houston was out golfing, but I was so tired from the work week that I really didn't accomplish anything.   Quite seriously, I walked around my apartment in circles for at least 2 hours.  Once I got in bed, I still couldn't sleep, so I used the opportunity to read "The Vow" that Darla had loaned to me. Needless to say, I read till 1:30 in the morning and then I woke up at 5:30 and finished (yes, finished) the book.  It was an easy read, but such a horrible/beautiful re-telling of a couple's relationship.  Long story short: Kim and Krickett had only been married two months when they were in a near fatal car crash.  They both miraculously survive, but Krickett has absolutely no memory of the last year of her life. She doesn't remember meeting, dating or marrying Kim.  The story (written from Kim's point of view) is heartbreaking and inspiring.

So what to do, since I woke up at 5:30 to finish reading? Take a nap at 7:15, of course!!!

9:00 am Zumba - boy that sucked. I haven't been to Zumba in almost three weeks and I got my butt kicked.  It will be horrible to miss Zumba with Xavi when the Fall semester starts in a month.  I will only be able to go on Saturday morning.  Lame. 

Originally, I had a day planned for Shauna and I. A girls day set aside to just relax and hang out together.  Unfortunately for us, the contractor from hell ruined my day plans and instead has been wreaking havoc in Shauna's house.  What should have been a pretty standard kitchen update has turned into a three week long project of mis-measured, scratched, and late installations.  Houston and I spent Saturday night hanging out with our friends and tried to help in whatever ways we could.  To relax when we all hit a breaking point, we had dinner at chili's. 

Sunday morning: Rise and shine, it's baseball time!!!

This was Houston's first game with the Moreno Valley Legends (since we were in Minnesota for the first game) and he played catcher the ENTIRE game.  My poor man took a beating, but he sure looks sexy in his uniform.

Yes, I wanted to score girlfriend points - I totally brought orange slices for the guys and kept them cool in a freezer bag until after the game.  I think my point plan worked - and the guys enjoyed the oranges.

Houston probably could have used a nice ice bath, he has multiple bruises and may have sprained his finger, but he was determined to go back to the Keck's to help some more. A quick bite to eat at In-n-Out and we were back to work on home improvement projects. *I should note: I have never lined my cabinets with contact paper, and after helping Shauna, I don't think I ever will.  That lazy Susan looks like I was as lazy as their contractor. Not a single cabinet is the same size.  Ugh.  Shauna and I made a pizza run and I decided there was no way to make the evening church service (we were sweaty messes since the electricity had to be off for the guys to work on electrical for a few hours). 

By the time I got home on Sunday night, I was exhausted and somehow managed to shower and get into bed. Although I honestly don't even recall doing the latter.  

Why does it have to be Monday already???
