The high of my week was… after work festivities, usually involving the Giants game. On Tuesday, I met up with some coworkers at a bar near the office; on Wednesday I had “Sunday night dinner” and the game at my brother’s house. Both nights were a lot of fun, even though the Giants did not win both games!
The low of my week was…lack of working out. I am feeling a bit of blah lately and have been snacking too much and not exercising enough. It’s like a long taper without actually training for anything. It’s a vicious circle, as not working out makes me feel like eating snacks and eating snacks makes me feel like not working out.
The favorite thing I read was…. a poem that my Mom wrote when she was in New York. She gave it to my Dad and he shared it with us. I think it’s sweet that they still do things like that for each other. The best thing is that my Dad may have written one back. I will have to ask him about it this weekend.
My favorite thing I heard was… the song “Baby Got Back” on the radio. I was in the car at the time and I turned it way, way up and got my groove on by dancing and singing along while waiting at a red light. What a great way to put some pep back into my step. LA face with an Oakland booty!
The best thing I spent money on was… gas. I don’t really drive very often, so when I do, its usually for a good reason, and so buying gas = an adventure! This week I used it to go to my brother’s house for a Giants game / birthday bash / dinner. It was well worth both the money and the time!
My plans this weekend include…hiking Mt. Whitney with my brother and Dad. We did it all together in 1995, when I wore flannel pants (it was the style then!) and my brother’s old Reeboks. I don’t remember having any altitude sickness but I do remember it being really cold at night (in September) and being really happy to reach the top. I wonder how it will be nearly 20 years later… (that kind of made me feel old just knowing that I can say “20 years later” and it not mean that I was a baby that long ago)

How was your week? What are you doing this weekend? What did you wear hiking when you were a kid?
