Top Ten Exciting* Things I Did This Weekend
10. Zumba class. Sure, I do it almost every weekend, plus Thursdays too, but I love Zumba. I love to dance and Zumba makes the hour fly by. Added bonus: I burned 700 calories.
9. Went gathering, sorted, and completed six loads of laundry. Sadly, still have about four loads left.
8. Shopped and bought four bags of clothes for Lil’ Diva and The Tackler – mostly “winter” clothes. Now they have more than two winter outfits that actually fit them. In my defense, it’s been 80 degrees outside….
7. Cleaned the game room/playroom. Okay, not exciting at all. However, I did get the Tackler to help, it’s vacuumed and I can take it off of my To Do List. That is exciting.
6. Located my heating pad. Exciting only because I needed to use it.
5. Watched TV – a necessity because our hard drive filled up and I had to clear off space. Still, I have issues deleting shows – I’m a TV show hoarder. Yes, I should probably seek therapy about it.
4. Watched Toy Story 3 with The Tackler. Okay, so it was actually on Thursday, not this weekend, but I have wanted to do that since it was in theaters last summer. I was shocked to find tears in my eyes at the end and horribly embarrassed – until I discovered almost every mother teared up at the same part. The only thing missing was popcorn – I was afraid to wake up Lil Diva – who held off awakening until the credits rolled.
3. Had insanely stressful dinner out: The Tackler was an angel focused on his food while Lil Diva was Supremely Pissed Off. This resulted in a very stressed out and snippy CG – who absolutely hates it when he can’t Fix It. Only exciting if viewed as contest for Can We Finish Eating Before We All Snap – which The Tackler would’ve won.
2. Went to see UT Theatre production of Fight on campus. Loved the show, loved the set, loved getting out for the night. At one point in the show, there was an actual boxing fight where the winner was not predetermined. It was scored as it happened and the audience was encouraged to join in. I began cheering for The Opponent (versus the main character) because I happened to be sitting in her corner. I managed to get my section chanting for her, then the rest of the theatre countered with chants of “Dan-ni, Dan-ni” for the lead. Afterward, the writer/director thanked me for cheering for opponent as she feared no one would. It was almost as nice as….
1. When buying tickets for the show I was given the student rate, even though I haven’t been one for 11 years. Helped greatly by the fact that I did not have two young children in tow and did not carry a diaper bag. Still, GO ME!
