Stronger than Ever

What started out on Friday to be a horrid weekend, actually turned out to be an absolutely fabulous weekend.

I was tested on Friday and I'm sorry to say I did not pass the test. Thankfully, God gives us do-overs. After work on Friday I went to the grocery store, came home and camped out on my sofa with a bottle of wine.

On Saturday I got up early and went to the gym. I did a full hour of cardio and then lifted weights for thirty minutes. The entire time I'm scolding myself for not going more often. I will do better. After that I came home and showered and shampooed and got cute so I could have lunch with Bryan. We went to a place that serves this awesome "black and blue" sirloin salad. I don't know why they call it "black and blue" but it was awesome. I'll probably review the place soon. After lunch, he went to work and I went to finish up my Christmas shopping. The stores weren't as crazy as I thought they would be. Probably because I knew exactly what I wanted and where to get it. Shopping was a breeze.

Saturday evening I attended a fundraising event at church to raise money for wells in Africa. It costs $3k for one well and we raised exactly that on Saturday night. This will be the second well that we donated and it felt good to be able to get all the money with one event. The first one took a little longer. It was a good night.

It rained yesterday so after church I really just wanted to come home and chill. So I came home, baked a cake (if I turn on my oven it counts as baking!), and cleaned out my fireplace. Bryan showed up with the wood, a bottle of Shiraz and a bottle of Meritage and that was all she wrote. I made turkey wings in the crockpot and we just enjoyed the fire while watching the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert on HBO.

Life is good.

Tests, tests, man... some we pass, some we fail. I think we do well in recognizing that the test has come and we messed up... Thank goodness for God's grace and mercy. If not for that, we'd all be looking straight crazy...

Sounds like a great weekend. Really. Good deal!
