First weekend of 2014!

This has been quite the weekend! Friday after work, we drove down to Florida. Luckily we got to see Brad and Rebecca (Jon’s sister and brother-in-law) for a few before bed. Saturday morning I slept until 10, had a nice stack of french toast for breakfast from Mimi’s Cafe (I love french toast but know I need to fully give up bread again for awhile, so it was a last big breakfast shebang), and then Jon and I went back to Brad and Rebecca’s and napped. For four hours. It’s not even like we got home and relaxed and fell asleep. We both laid down and were out until 5pm. I guess I needed it because I never nap for that long! We ended up driving out to Jon’s parent’s to drop off some flooring stuff and then spent our night watching The Heat with Brad and Rebecca. Sunday morning we went out to Jon’s parent’s house again because his twin sister, husband, and new baby were in town from Iowa! It was a good little family time and I enjoyed seeing everybody again! We took a few family pictures (I can be included now cause I’m the fiancée!).

Our faces were a little washed out from the sun behind us, but I’m sure that can be edited. Just not right now. They’re definitely a tall family and I’m definitely not!

We had a long drive home on Sunday in the Jeep. Because of possible snow on Sunday afternoon, we couldn’t take my car. Luckily, it didn’t snow before we got home, but there was still a chance of snow and ice. Since hospitals don’t close, I ended up staying in a hotel near work (after unpacking, repacking, and making food for three days at work). I didn’t arrive there till about 11:30, so after watching a few episodes of House Hunters, I fell asleep!

I worked 11-7 today and was happy to see no snow when I woke up this morning! It was still really cold out and we still have threatened snow storms all week. I really wish Atlanta was more prepared with snow plows and salt trucks, but I guess they’d rather shut the city down once or twice a year than spend all that money for a day or two of snow. After work, I had to grocery shop for a bit. I think I made it home around 8:45 finally.

I cleaned up a bit and made Jon’s lunch for work tomorrow. It’s 10pm now and I work again at 7am tomorrow, so it’s off to bed in a few. Since I work every day this week, I have a feeling I’ll be spending a night at the hospital. I’m taking bags with me every day and enough lunch for two days! I think Wednesday night is supposed to snow again.

Oh, if anybody out there loves Benadryl as much as I do for sleep, I discovered Zzzquil! I used to take the Benadryl tablets and always thought I should start drinking baby Benadryl cause liquid would probably work faster and then I saw Zzzquil at CVS over the weekend! It’s 50mg of diphenhydramine (equal to two tablets of Benadryl) and it actually doesn’t even taste bad! Anyway, thanks to that, I’ve been sleeping like a baby. And I’m probably the only person to get this excited but I use Benadryl for sleep fairly often (just about anytime I’ve had more than one day off work, I take it before having to wake up again at 5am).

I’m really hoping to make it to the gym, CrossFit, or running at least twice this week! I know it’ll be hard because of working all five days and possibly having to spend the night at work, but I’m really wanting to get back to the gym now!

  1. I hope you are able too too. Did you say why you are giving up bread and I missed it? Anyways good luck with that and your workouts in general. I usually take melatonin if I want to sleep badly. Though that makes me groggy if I don’t get enough sleep with it.

    • I just felt WAY better when I ate Paleo and always feel so bloated and miserable when I eat bread or grain products. But they taste good, so lately I’ve been eating them anyway!

  2. Glad you had a great time over the weekend! Can you do gluten free french toast?

    It’s been snowing a foot of snow here each time but then the next day or two the temperature shoots up to 40 so the plows have been doing an awwwful job and they don’t release them until a couple of hours in. This winter needs to be over.

    Try not to burn yourself out! Hope you make it to the gym!

    • I actually have s recipe for Paleo french toast that I love, but I have been way too lazy to bake anything Paleo since it takes too much effort. But even GF prepackaged foods make me feel bloated and gross so I try to stay away from them. And if I’m eating french toast out, I just splurge 🙂
