Exercise:  I'm still working out 2-3 x's a week, just no running.  Mostly elliptical and the occasional weight/cardio class on Monday.

Sports:  Unfortunately my Thurs night VB league will not be playing this summer, there wasn't enough teams.  However, it is nice to have my Thursdays back for a while.  I still have my VB games on Sunday evenings.  Softball starts back up in about 2 weeks.

House/Projects:  Still slowly taking things to storage and arranging the house/garage.  Laid some new sod down in the backyard where it was balding.  :-P 

Upcoming big events:  At the end of May I'll be flying to Ohio for my cousin Amy's wedding.  In July I'll be on my Alaskan cruise with Karen!

#15 Cooking:  I have totally failed at this for quite some time now.  However now with Malek and the kids around, there will be more home cooked meals.  :-)

#16 Soak in my bathtub:  This is a failure as well....and I can't even get into it at the moment because all the clothes I'm donating to Goodwill are piled up in the tub.   Which leads to #41.  I haven't dropped anything off to goodwill yet because more clothes are added to the pile weekly.

#28 Triathlon:  This was put on hold as well.  I thought about competing in the Pflugerville Tri on 6/21, but since pulling my hip abductor running, I decided to take it easy.  Plus I still need to buy a bike #27. 

I'm hoping this summer to cross a few more things of my 101 list...the past few months I really haven't tackled anything on the list.  And the last few things listed above are on hold.  Maybe I'll get in a trip to a Fredericksburg  B&B and a wine tour!   I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of May!  How time flies.

Another busy weekend

Yet more packing, unpacking and moving.  I'm exhausted! 

Friday: GNO dancing!  What a great night!  Many of my dance partners were out on Friday.  :-D
Saturday:  Helped Karen settle into her new apt.  Yay!  She's in TX now!  :-)  Then went to dinner for Moni's b-day party at Hula Hut.
Sunday:  Helped Malek pack up his kitchen and take items to storage.  Also had a volleyball game that evening.

Busy weekend

This Easter weekend was exhausting!  Friday-Sunday involved moving furniture, painting, cleaning, staging, church, nap, and yet more tidying up.  I need a vacation!

Friday - Moved my office out of the guestroom and into the formal front room.  Set up computers and arranged front room.
Saturday- Thanks to Katie, Brent, James and Malek we painted the 2 guestrooms and guest bathroom in no time Saturday morning.  I couldn't have done it without you guys!  XOXOXOXO.  :-)  We even had time to hang some pictures.  Then we headed over to Malek's where the guys finished up the last of the sprinkler system while Katie and I staged his house.  Malek and I were supposed to have a date night that night, but we were all so exhausted that we just stayed in.  Katie & James came over and we grilled brats and watched a DVD.  I think we were in bed by 11pm.
Sunday - 127_white_bunny_rabbit  HAPPY EASTER!  We went to church with Katie & James, Hutto Baptist Church off 79.  Afterwards we grabbed some lunch.  Then it was off to our respective houses.  Malek had more cleaning to do at his place.  I ended up taking a brief nap before cleaning my house.  Then I went over to Malek's to conduct a walk-through/inspection.  By the time everything was done it was 7pm.  Where did the day go!  We ended the night with some wine and feta cheese. 

There's still some odds and edds of things to finish...but overall everything looks great!

I'll post pics once everything is complete.

Cruise booked and new Coach purse!

#48 - Take a vacation to Hawaii or somewhere outside the US
I booked my cruise to Alaska today!  Yes, I realize Alaska is one of the 50 states...but it's not considered part of the Contiguous US (or lower 48).  :-P  So I'm counting it as somewhere outside the Contiguous US!  :-D  I'm so excited!  This will be my 2nd trip with Karen.  We went on a cruise our senior year of college for Spring Break and had a blast.  We leave for our destination in July.

I also decided to treat myself to a new purse today.  I've really been wanting a new black Coach...and a friend of mine told me there was a really good sale going on at the RR Outlets.  Behold my new beauty!  I also bought this cute clutch.  Great for downtown and maybe even weddings!
