Friday Five-the late night edition

If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say?  And why are you waiting?

  1. Bittersweet. I had the day off, but had to go into work. I was told I could leave once all our customers had been served, usually 4:00. The last person walked in at 3:57 and was a 45 minute interview, ugh. I rushed home, but had to stop at the bank to get money for the babysitter. I took the exit for the bank, called my hubby to tell him I was stopping off at the bank and he said he had already gotten cash. I got back on the freeway, hit traffic, then finally made it home. I took the day off to shop for the family that would be coming to visit us Saturday night. Great, now I'll have to try and squeeze in some serious shopping tomorrow, right?! Wrong. Every last person, save for the in-laws of course, have backed out of attending for one reason or another. Bittersweet? Yes, having them over at this particular time is my thing, bitter :( The fact that I don't have to prepare anything after a planned long day tomorrow, sweet.
  2. Morning run of 3 miles was cancelled due to required rest and snuggling. Wish I hadn't needed to go to work, I could've slept in. Oh well, good news is my running buddy is up for 15-20 miles Sunday. I know a 5 mile range is pretty wide, but we're gonna see how we feel at 15 and go from there. I love having a running partner and am so grateful.
  3. Watched the Mexican Bicentennial on DVR, WOW! Freaking amazing, wish I had been in Mexico City, I was moved to tears. Viva!
  4. I get to go to Public Affairs Training next week. I will be way from home from lunch time Monday to Dinner time Wednesday. Like how I center my time around eating? I am so excited to mingle with other professionals, sleep in, since we don't meet each day until 8:00, and relax once the work day is over. Sure I will miss my family, but I think I will come back a well rested Momma. I am not sure when the hubby gets to recover from those days, but I am sure we'll work something out.
  5. Do you say your sorry the second you realize you hurt someone? Do you wait and let the friend rebound on it's own without formally acknowledge your role in the hurt feelings. Repent to a hire power?


Keep your words soft and tender because tomorrow you may have to eat them.  ~Author Unknown
Thankful Three
  1. For my mom, totally helped me out in a pinch tonight
  2. For not having a lot to apologize for. I am so not perfect, but as I get older I do less stupid things requiring apologies
  3. For my 2 year old son who is so eagerly learning Spanish, his accent is perfect!

1. I would be, too.
2. Love required snuggling.
3. I've never heard of it. Will have to check it out.
4. Sounds like it will be a nice little break.
5. I usually say it right away. Can't help it. It eats me up inside.

Hope you have a great weekend and a fantastic run on Sunday!
