A Slightly Boring Weekend Update!

What a wonderful birthday I had!

I am now 24 – officially in my mid-twenties. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN??!!
Anyway, my weekend was full of family fun! With us leaving so soon, everyone is fighting over our time. Friday I had the day off work, and did a lot of cleaning and laundry. Friday night, husband and I went to see the movie New In Town. It was pretty funny, but I wish I’d picked a movie with a little more substance!

Saturday we slept in ridiculously late, then went to my mom’s for a birthday dinner. We had Italian beef sandwiches (which my dad brought from Chicago!) and chips. Yeah, I ate too much. And cheesecake. It was terrible/wonderful. My pants are getting tight. How do I change this mindset? I don’t have much motivation. I keep thinking “I’ll lose weight in China!”. Anyway, my mom, dad, sister, cousin, her boyfriend, and her daughter was there. Fun times were had. We watched a movie after dinner, then skidaddled when mom turned Nascar on. She’s a Nascar NUT. I, however, am not.

Sunday, we went to Husband’s parents’ house for a Planet Earth marathon with the in-laws, along with the brother-in-law and his fiancée. It’s a series that BBC did on nature. It is by far the most amazing nature show I’ve ever seen. I heart it. Except when the fox eats the baby duck. That’s pretty scarring.

I am entering my last week at my office. It’s so weird knowing that Friday I’m leaving, and I may never come back. I’ve never stayed at an employer this long before (yeah, I’m a youngun. But for a 24 year old, 3 years is a long time!). I’m going to miss a lot of people, but I won’t miss office work. I’m excited to move on and learn to teach!

Amy Jo, that comment about the fox eating the baby duck was so funny, and true for me too. I love that series also, but I never like watching anything get killed, human or animal.

Sounds like a fun birthday celebration. I'm glad you enjoyed it. You will at some point have to change your mindset, but for some reason, I'm with you. I bet you WILL lose weight in China.
