Squeakin' in the "us time"

Happy Hump Day all!

I hate to sound like a broken record but yesterday was crazy busy...again.  I'm trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel but every time I see a pinprick of light, some other seemingly urgent new task pops up.  I had the tornado dream the other night.  I knew it was coming.  It always happens when I have a crapload of stuff to get done with a deadline.  (FYI, according to dream interpretation sites: "To dream that you are in a tornado means that you are feeling overwhelmed and out of control."  Yep, that about sums it up!)

Like I started this post an hour ago, got sidetracked and here I am at 11:30pm.  *bangs head against wall*

Earlier, when the Mr's work day came to an end, it was time for our workout.  The previous two days made us both pretty hobbly so something with a bunch of jumping and stuff was out.  I suggested a walk around the hood.  I had to laugh at this duck enjoying his "pond" before flying off...

We did three laps (3 miles) and by the time we were ready be done, the signs were all there.

I felt bad because I've been seriously neglecting the Mr the past two weeks.  No real down time so I decided we should take advantage of an expiring Family Video coupon and rent Office Christmas Party  (affiliate link) because Jason Bateman and Wild Oats because Jessica Lange.  Wild Oats is a 5 day rental so we're going to probably watch that later in the week.

We knew that based off of the usual office or party culture movie formula, it had the potential to be bad.  But we were laughing pretty much beginning to end.  Lots of crudeness but a really endearing undertone and I love it when Jennifer Aniston plays a ruthless beeotch.  The scene where she schools the girl who ate her Cinnabon is life and I hate that term.  So if you like kinda rude comedies, we both really liked it.

Unfortunately by the time it was over, we had a few errands to run.  The Mr has to get up early this morning to workout because he's got PT after work so that means I'm on my own for strength today. Oh hang on, let me send him a workout to do in the morning.  Okay...sent it to him.  Here it is if you want to do it too.  I'll figure out today what my body can handle but I'm thinking upper body for me.  I knew he was going to get his upper body workout at PT later too.  I think this might be his last session.  The previous one, he put him through a bunch of core crap and was making things up on the fly and he said he felt like he was just keeping him around because there were two more visits approved by insurance.  Well, we still pay $100 pop after insurance and if he was 95% two weeks ago, he's probably good to go.  So if he feels he's gone as far as can with him tonight, he'll probably just call Friday or something and cancel the one two week from now and just not reschedule it.  He's done quite well and it will continue to improve as he keeps up his home PT.

So I think we're caught up!  If this is riddled with typos and grammatical errors, my apologies since my proofreader is in dreamland at publishing time.  ;-)

Do you make a point to have "us time" when your schedule has been crazy?  Have you rented any good movies lately?

  1. I hate morning workouts but that was a good one. It's like if you're going to be up and do something it might as well be really worth your time, so I recommend it to anyone up now and reading this who might have 30 minutes to just get it done.

  2. I rented Doctor Strange this weekend. It wasn't great. I also rented Moana to watch with my son it was much much better. I think this weekend I'll be renting Office Christmas Part, and maybe a couple others I've been wanting to see.

  3. I haven't rented a movie in so long it's not even funny. I did finally see Central Intelligence when it came on the Dish and that was pretty cute. My attention span has somehow disappeared in recent years so I miss out on a lot of movies I say I'm going to either go see in the theater or watch at home but never do.

    I had to stop my workouts this week because I pulled the muscles in my back along where my bra would be a couple of weeks ago from coughing so hard from that nasty cold that went around. Two things yesterday I screamed when I tried to move in my chair because it felt like a vice around me and the poor hubs jumped up trying to get pillows and a heating pack. It was comical in that it was so pathetic. I've halfway to 90 now, so my recovery time just blows. LOL
