My Head & My Heart Have Been On The Dance Floor For Hours

I have been doing a mental “It’s Friday!” dance all day long. I am very ready for the weekend. I actually got up this morning and got on the treadmill. It’s been a very long time since I worked out on Friday but it wasn’t bad at all. In fact, I randomly decided to change it up a bit this morning...I decided instead of running at 4mph for a minute or 2 and then walking 3mph for a minute or 2 that I would increase more slowly so I started at 3, then went to 3.5, then walked at 4 instead of running and then ran at 4.5 and then I would come down and instead of instantly going from 4.5 to 3, I went 4.5, 4, 3.5 and 3. I did this and got my fastest mile ever (16:12)!!! I was so surprised. I looked down and I was like...hey...I might beat my own record here. The best part was that since I paced myself, I wasn’t completely worn out for the second mile so it didn’t take me much longer than the first...I did both miles in 32 minutes and 56 seconds. I felt pretty empowered when I got done...for some reason I thought that because I shaved a few minutes off my time that I could pace myself getting ready for work. Anyway, I was pleased.

So-My friend Whitney is in town y’all. I love it when she is here. Here is a picture of her Mya:



Mya is so cute and sweet. Hopefully she will start remembering me soon! See, I like the fact that Whitney and another friend of mine, Stacey, have kids because whenever I’m feeling maternal, I can borrow theirs. I love Mya and Alex and Alivia...oh yah...and my brother. See, I got kids of all ages. The best part is, they don’t live with me or leave backwash in my drink. I do worry about my brother as if he were my son though...and that is no fun. I think if I had to pick the number one reason I’m scared to have kids...that would be it. I’m a worrier and my brother is 16 and he scares me to death. He’s a good kid so I can only imagine how worried I would be if he weren’t.

Anyway, I’m glad Whitney and her husband Xay and Mya are here. I love to see them so hopefully we will get to hang out some this weekend...and way more in the future. The only other stuff I got going on this weekend is a weigh in, softball practice and some much needed TV time.

I know that there are a plethora of run-on sentences and punctuation errors in today’s blog...more than usual but I am no mood to be an editor today...besides...you all know by now that I write like I talk so hopefully you won’t have any problems reading it.

I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

“Not that I don't like you: I'm just at a party
And I am sick and tired of my phone ri-ringing
Sometimes I feel like I live in Grand Central Station
Tonight I'm not takin no calls 'cause I'll be dancin'
'Cause I'll be dancin'
'Cause I'll be dancin'
Tonight I'm not takin' no calls 'cause I'll be dancin!

Stop callin', stop callin'; I don't wanna think anymore!;
I got my head and my heart on the dance-floor
Stop callin', stop callin'; I don't wanna talk anymore!;
I got my head and my heart on the dance-floor

Stop callin', stop callin'; I don't wanna think anymore!;
I got my head and my heart on the dance-floor
Stop callin', stop callin'; I don't wanna talk anymore;
I got my head and my heart on the dance-floor.” Telephone-Lady Gaga (Featuring Beyonce Knowles)

    Also...the backwash in your drink...LOL! Seriously though, that's so gross! I always hated that with my sister!

    And, once again, another stellar song!
