High: Leftovers for dinner Friday night, and if there is one thing I love, it is feeling like a thrifty domestic boss because we ate up the yummy [and only slightly freezer-burnt] leftovers I found behind the ice-cube trays.
High: Topped off leftover dinner with way too many gooey brownies hot from the pan and dripping in salted caramel sauce.
Low: Aforementioned brownies did not do so well with recently purified Whole30 stomach.
High: Got in an early morning 6 mile run on the mall with my running buddy.
Low: That run was cold, so cold, and my knees spent the rest of the weekend protesting.
High: Followed run with the world’s longest hot shower, after which I changed back into my pajamas and had breakfast sandwiches in bed.
Low: Spent the rest of the day grading papers, tests, and homework.
High: Used grading binge as excuse to catch up on all my TV shows, which, as I have mentioned before, are Legion.
High: DC had a beautiful blizzard all day Saturday, and there’s nothing better than being snug inside while snow swirls outside.
Low: I made us go out in that blizzard to had dinner with friends in Alexandria Saturday night and I was pretty sure I wouldn’t live to see Sunday.
High: We didn’t die, and we got to eat tacos.
High: We stayed up late and finished Arrested Development.
Low: I always feel kind of sad when I finish a show because I love them so much… and then they are over.
Low: Seriously overslept Sunday morning and had to do the holy walk-of-shame into the back row at church during prayer.
High: Oversleeping always means more sleep, so that’s an automatic high.
Low: A week of snow and sludge meant a very dirty house and some Sunday afternoon cleaning, which we usually try to avoid.
High: James cleaned the floors while I power walked around the city to appease my Fitbit and binge listened to Jason and Molly’s Bachelor podcast.
High: Oscar viewing party Sunday night!
Low: I’m officially out of touch and old, as I had seen all of three movies nominated (none of which won) and was too sleepy to stay up till the end.
High: It’s was the weekend. And in a handful of days, we get another one.
Any highs and lows from your weekends?
