Memorial Day Weekend


all in all it was a pretty good weekend. my summer Friday was this past week so i ended up having a 4 day weekend, which is fantastic! i watched some of the worst movies i've ever seen with my roommate who has proven that he is not allowed to pick out flicks by himself anymore if he wants me to watch them too :) i ended up doing SAG on Saturday AM for my team and got to hang out with Eric, who is quite literally one of my favorite married friends. i was really bummed to not be able to do the run, but i am listening to my doctors this time instead of my usual stubborn, bull headed pride and staying off my knees until race day. Sunday was met with an early morning Hot Power Fusion class followed by church and lunch with Gunn where we were able to let off some steam and get our most recent personal debacles off our chests. i was also able to get the majority of my room unpacked from the move and can finally see the floor, so that's fun, but now i can see just how dirty the carpet is. i'm thinking i might need to get some kind of large rug to add a little zing to the place :) i then received a cryptic text message from Ang asking me if i wanted to do something crazy. i respond with a "sure," as i am always down to have some much needed fun and crazy time with my girls. i was then directed to a bar downtown where i proceeded to get intoxicated with my boss (it was her birthday). they had been drinking all day and wanted me to quickly "catch up." so, after one Bull Blaster and 3 chocolate martinis...well you can imagine the rest. at least i was able to meet some pretty cool characters along the way where i proceeded to have lengthy conversations that i can't really remember and random meetings of the minds on everything from politics to rugby. fun times ;) which brings us to Monday...Memorial day, where i proceeded to fry myself beyond recognition. again. you might think one would learn seeing as how i had a very recent experience just a couple of months ago, but alas, the inner workings of my brain had been discombobulated due to the previous nights drinking rendezvous. Brian and i headed to the OB beach around 12:30, which happens to be only 2 miles from our place, where we basked in the beautiful mid day sun. i fell asleep as he played in the absolutely frigid Pacific Ocean and when he finally came back to dry off, i was burnt to a crisp. like frog legs frying in a vat of oil. and now, now almost 24 hours later, i am paying dearly for my poor judgment. because the wind was blowing quite steadily and the temps outside never got above 72, i didn't think i needed to put on sunscreen. i actually thought it would be too chilly for us to stay long enough to do any damage. boy oh boy did i misjudge that! suffice to say, i will be hurting for days to come and praying that my body has time to heal between now and Sunday, seeing as how i am about to embark on the most crazy physical challenge of my lifetime...well, thus far. pray for me. please. i need it :)
