So. Friggin’. Exhausted.

Here we are again! Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. I’m currently typing from the comforts of BFs couch with one of his kitties (the absolute cutest kitten I have ever seen). So how did I get here, the point of complete exhaustion?


Well after Friday nights Karaoke nonsense, I went to work on Saturday at the yoga studio. After work, I went to Target to pick up a baby shower gift for my friend NIM’s baby shower. While I was at Target I found some super cute bathing suit. It seemed like a good idea to try them on. Not so much. I received a quick reminder that I am not 16 anymore. That, yes, my body has changed since high school. And that my hips are slightly wider. I felt so crappy. BF attempted to cheer me up by telling me how beautiful I am. It helped. 🙂

After Target I hit up a power vinyasa yoga class. This was a BAD idea. I have been to 5 classes this week. I didn’t allow myself enough time to recover from previous practices. OUCH! It was rough. But I made it through. And luckily, the teacher was my most favorite teacher ever. She always has something inspirational to say. It is always exactly what I need to hear at that exact moment. I think she’s my angel! Does anyone else feel this way about someone who has no idea?

After yoga I picked up some dinner from Trader Joe’s and then treated myself to a Caramel Macchiato from SBUX! Wonderful end to a semi-blah day. I went home and cooked myself some dinner and watched Marley and Me. Potentially the third bad idea of the day (see previous paragraphs). What. A. Sad. Movie. Wow. The only funny part was that Oscar recognizes dogs on the TV. He went NUTS! He stared at the TV, 1/2 growling, 1/2 barking, but definitely staring. It was hilarious! But for the sad parts, the Oscar disappeared. Right when I needed him most to cuddle with me! Oh well.

This morning I slept in a bit and then went to a pilates class. After pilates I had to run to Target (again) because I failed to actually pick up a gift yesterday (thanks to my bikini obsession/depression). I picked up a gift off the registry and somehow managed to pick up a bunch of cleaning supplies as well. I barely made it to BFs in time to get ready and head to the baby shower.

NIM looked adorable at her shower! And it turns out I’m horrible at baby shower games (oh well). It was nice to see people from work outside of work. It’s a completely different atmosphere when this occurs. After the baby shower I ran back to Target (what is my deal, for real?!?) to pick up just a couple more items for my clean-a-thon. Thank goodness I did!

I had my work cut out for me. So while BF is gone I am cleaning his entire house, including the pantry (which was a disaster). He blames his pantry on being a bachelor, but this is far worse than I could have ever imagined. He buys in bulk and he has a second freezer. He also buys dry items and keeps them stored. This works out well. He’s got everything. If I’m craving it, he’s got it. However, this is how it looked:


After 2 and a half hours, this is how it turned out:




I think I did a pretty good job! I got fairly frustrated about 1/2 through and thought about giving up, but I think he’ll be pleased when he returns from Denver. In addition, I went on a cleaning rampage! BF never does laundry. He has so many clothes, I swear he never actually needs to do laundry. Well, I did pretty much ALL of his laundry. I also scrubbed the kitchen, top to bottom. Dishes – done. Floor – scrubbed. Sink – cleaned. Counters – scrubbed.

Then I moved on to the kitties litter box area! UGH! But completed. Bathroom is pristine! I bought cleaning supplies (which BF had very few of) to REALLY scrub the shower; floor is scrubbed; toilet is scrubbed; EVERYTHING is scrubbed!

I didn’t get around to making dinner until 9 tonight! But – YUM! – Spaghetti was worth it! While I cooked the s’ghetti, I baked some Oatmeal Chip Cranberry cookies.



I’m now watching some TV, waiting to chat with BF for a bit, and folding his ENDLESS amounts of laundry! I. Am. TIRED! Ugh. What a weekend!

How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything exciting??

Wow. Amazing how you accomplished so much in one weekend!

You’re a nice girlfriend for sorting out that pantry *and* making cookies.
