Lovely Weekend

I can't remember the last time I had a weekend and didn't think about work AT ALL!! I was so amazing to just "have a life" and hang out with friends enjoying life! IT WAS AMAZING! I don't even dread going back to work tomorrow, so what did I do to make all this happen??? I went out with some friends to the city on Friday night...not something I would usually do, but my friend Mark is an expert at giving me a guilt trip. Going out with Mark isn't like going out with normal night we drove to this restaurant in Oakland and when we got there were told that we were going to have to wait an hour and a half for a table. Well Mark went outside made a phone call (he knew the owner) and we had a table in like 2 minutes later. The funny thing is when you meet Mark you wouldn't think this of him in fact he is really down to earth and a super nice guy who grew up in Oakland and worked very hard to make something of himself. He has an amazing amount of contacts from growing up mainly because he is just a GREAT person. I don't know why expected anything less on Friday we approached the club with a long line I thought to myself "what am I doing out after 9pm on a Friday night", but in true Mark fashion we walked to the front of the line and were immediately escorted the VIP section of the club. It never ceases to amaze this small town girl from Idaho the lengths that city folk go to or the amount of money they will spend.

Saturday I paid for going out all night on Friday, but it really was worth it. I ended up taking care of myself by getting my nails, toes, and eyebrows done. I hadn't done that in FOREVER either so I was looking a bit tore up! Then hung out with some friends...I was suppose to go to San Jose for a coworker Birthday party, but I didn't have the energy to do that. So dualing pianos it was and it was fabulous...again not enough sleep but the time with friends was much needed. I really need to get out more....

Sunday was left to clean up this apartment which was much overdue. Now that it is done I feel I can face the week head on. Tomorrow morning is up and at them early so I can workout before heading to the office. If I can get through the end of the month sticking to the workout schedule I might just be tempeted to sign up for a Marathon again...we will see how the foot holds up, but so far so good!!!
