So our romantic Valentine’s Day didn’t quite go as we may have liked yestarday. Mary got stuck in traffic on the way home from work and couldn’t make it home to pick me up for music lesson. She took the hour music lesson and didn’t get home till like 7:30pm. I prepared dinner and by the time we finally saw each other we were pretty tired. We did like each others gifts to each other and after gettting dinner cleaned up we watched an episode of Supernatural which was really cool! Thats it for now, I have to leave in a few minutes for my TRX class!
I had a rough start to the day, my alarm didn’t go off for some reason this morning. Or I turned it off in my sleep and didn’t realize. I wasn’t late for work though I did sleep in a bit and it through off my rountine a little bit. I had some laundry to finish and coffee to be made, both things that should have been taken care of the night before but I didn’t get to them because I was tired. Thankfully I have an amazing wife who took care of both things for me which helped me out a lot! Got out the door on time and caught my bus and the rest of the day was great actually! Work was pretty steady all day, got my Valentine’s Day gift for Mary Louise (a little last minute but I think she’ll love it!) and I had a great TRX workout! Looking forward to Valentine’s Day tomorrow! ML and I had our VD date on Saturday so tomorrow we are just going to our music lessons and watching The Walking Dead! Hope everyone has a great VD tomorrow!
So I didn’t blog yestarday, figured I’d take a break and blog about my weekend today or tomorrow if I didn’t wind up getting a chance today.
Friday night my wife and I had dinner at my parents which is our usual Friday night routine. We had dinner and then watched the tv series Bomb Girls which is a six part series about the women who work in a factory making the bombs for the men who were off fighting in the war. I was a little reluctant to watch it at first. I don’t watch a lot of drama tv shows or movies. I love action, horror and comedy, and drama is not usually my first choice to watch. I don’t hate drama movies there are quite a few that I love its just not my first choice. I got into the show right from the first episode and have found out recently that there will be a season two which I’m looking forward to. I recommend if people haven’t seen it yet to check it out.
Saturday was a really great day! I met my alpha music team to learn new worship music from Glen Soderholm. I have been helping out with Alpha at church for a few years now mostly playing guitar with the music team but lately helping in the groups as well. Glen has come to St A’s a couple of times before and we always learn lots from him when he comes. The last time he came we learned the song May The Peace Of Christ Be with you which we have been playing for people just before they leave on Wednsday nights. This time we learned a song called Everything We Need which I really like. Pretty simple chords though I learned a new syle of strumming (well it is new to me) which Glen calls Boom Chucka. My homework this week is to strum one chord in this style which I do plan on doing. Glen actually taught this style of strumming the last time he came though I must admit I did not practice it as I should. Also it was suggested to me to use my guitar strap so for part of the session I played my guitar with the strap which I found a little awkward at first. I did practice a little later in the day after I got home using the guitar strap and it started to get more comfortable.
So that was my morning yestarday. I had a little rest when I got home and then went to the gym. Had a great workout and I was glad I went because I don’t have time to go today. After the gym I met my wife and the Pickel Barrel resaurant for date night. I forgot that Valentine’s Day is on Tuesday so a lot of people were celebrating their Valentine’s Day this weekend. The restaurant was busy though not nearly as busy as SilverCity movie theatre. We wanted to see The Women In Black the new movie with Danial Radcliffe. We got tickets for it but the theatre was packed so we had to return out tickets and get tickets for another show. We wound up getting tickets for Chronicle. It is a Sci-Fi movie and I didn’t know anything about it going in so I’m not going to tell you what it is about, just I thouhgt it was a great movie and go see it!
So that was yestarday! Today I had church this morning and it was a great service! I had a hard time getting up this morning but felt great pretty much as soon as I walked into church. The sermon was great and I loved the choir anthem! We also have a quest preacher who I believe will be supplying for awhile and I really enjoyed his prayers!
Well I can’t believe I have written so much! Hope everyone had a great weekend and get a good sleep tonight so you’re not too tired for Monday morning. I normally don’t sleep well Sunday nights and Mondays are usually hard for me so I hope the same for myself!
Not too much to say today but I am happy it is Friday! My wife is on her way home with a decaf Vanilla latte for me. I’ve already had my caffine intake for the day. Then we are off my parents for dinner which is generally our Friday evening routine. I will hopefully have more to say tomorrow as I get used to dailly blogging! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
So I am new to blogging and I’m not sure what I want to get out of it. I have a few friends on Facebook who have regular blogs and I’ve been thinking about it for awhile so I thought I’d try it.
Yestarday I had TRX (Total Resistance Excercise) at Goodlife Fitness. I’ve been a member at Goodlife since October 2011 and am really liking the gym so far! Early in January my wife signed up for a TRX Demo and I decided to sign up as well. I thoufght it was really cool and even though I was feeling sore after the demo I signed up for the course. It goes for 9 weeks twice a week. It is pretty intense and a lot of fun. The only downside was the it cost $300 on top of our membership so it was too expensive for my wife and I to do the course together. So I’m taking it now and she will take it later. Yestarday was day 10 (I believe) so we are just over the half way point. I’m loving the classes so far even though I’m feeling the yestardays workout today. I’m mostly feeling my triceps. I’m thinking that today will be a rest day from the gym and go tomorrow after work!
Just a short blog for my first blog. Wednsday is a particularly long day for me. Will be longer next time! Looking forward to blogging!
