What a crazy weekend! Everything happened at once. Halloween, of course, and not only that, but my daughter's birthday is on that same day. Saturday both my husband and I had to sell at Grower's Markets, just like always.
My daughter had a swim party scheduled for 3:00. We rented a local indoor pool for the occasion.
We both had to run home like real quick (the markets are both 45 minutes away from our house and they end at 1:00. After that of course, we have to pack everything up in the rigs before we can leave. Needless to say, that's cutting it pretty fine.
So we swam with the kids, took them over to DQ for ice cream cake (no trouble there, I just had a few forkfuls just to try it - trust me, they're not that good), then Rachel had a sleepover to go to, because one of her friends had a party that night.
I TOLD her she way way overbooked herself (and us) for the weekend. My social butterfly, and she's only 10.
So we took her there... whew!!! Rush-rush-rush.
I visited with the mom hosting the slumber party for an hour or so then came home and we watched the Ducks play the Trojans. Divided loyalties there; I am a native Angeleno, but we live in Oregon. Luckily I don't follow football that rabidly!
Sonny boy was getting awful tired after the game, so we decided to go out dancing after he went to bed.. I can't tell you how long it's been since DH and I did this; it's really pathetic. When you have kids, you never go anywhere.
There was a big Halloween ball in town with a great DJ and everything. WooHoo! I love to dance!!
We stayed there till 1 a.m. I drank 2 Diet rum-and-Cokes and 1 regular rum and Coke, and 1 small beer. This was over 4 hours' time so I didn't get smashed. Actually I was feeling pretty good.
But I won't do it again, because I felt like crap the next day. The longest hangover of my life. I'm just not used to drinking; I hardly ever do it anymore. I still don't feel that great and it's Monday morning.
So the purpose of this blog is to remind myself:
1. Don't get overtired. Obviously that day was a poor choice to go out because there was so much else going on.
2. Don't drink when you plan to be out late. That's a one-two punch I just can't take.
3. I tried to drink often, but it wasn't enough. so, take a water bottle with!!! Dancing is just another form of cardio. I wouldn't show up to the gym without my trusty water bottle; why would I go dancing without it by my side?
One good thing did come of all this, I didn't overeat at all over the weekend, and I had/have absolutely no desire for sweets. Ugh! No raiding the kids' candy for me! Right now, I am just eating foods like oatmeal and apples. It's all I can stomach.
Hope you had a great time this weekend!
