I know it has been forever since my last post.... Its been one wild week to say the least. One thing happened this week that was really exciting.... I won my first tennis match!!! YAY! I played singles and won 6-1, 6-4. Toward the end of the second set, I was so worn out, I thought I was going to drop dead on the court!! I realized that I am really out of shape. But nevertheless, I won and it was really fun and a great experience. Our next match is a week from today, but I am an alternate so I will just be there to cheer on my team. I also joined a new gym this week. It is right by our house and super cheap, I have been twice since I joined... better than nothing, right?
Then on to the part of the week that was not as fun. On Thursday I had to go to the doctor and have a heart monitor put on for 24 hours. It is not a big deal, they just want to see the reason that my heart beats really fast. The thing was pretty annoying and I didnt get any sleep with it on. I had this big, bulky, fanny pack looking thing around my waist and cords everywhere, I couldnt even shower in it... total pain. On Friday, I went to the doctor at 5:00 to have it taken off and the woman ripped the sticky stuff off so fast it felt like my tummy and chest were being waxed. Ouch! SO... after all that was over, it was finally Friday (the 13th) and the end to a very hectic work week so I thought I would go to the mall and do some Valentines shopping and chill out. I walked in the door at Dillards and went up to the bathroom. I hung my purse on the back of the door and before I could even put toilet paper down (I know, TMI), the hook on the bathroom door broke and my purse fell to the ground. I immediately thought about my camera that was in my purse. It was in the case, but on the bottom of my purse. Sure enough, I pulled it out and it wouldnt turn on. I felt like I was going to scream!!!! I seriously couldnt catch a break. I remembered that Jared said the battery was dead when he tried to take pics of me playing tennis, so I just hoped that was the case. I rushed home to charge it and it turned out that the camera was fine, but the lens was broken. I felt better at this point that the camera was ok, it could have been worse. Later that evening, Jared and I were quickly walking the dogs so he could get home and do his paper that was due at midnight. We got back to the house and he went straight to the office to do it... only to discover that his computer had crashed. Of course it had!! So, to put it lightly, the past 48 hours have been expensive around here!! He got a new computer and I am borrowing my mom's 18-55mm lens (like the one I had) until my birthday, when I will ask for a better one (18-105mm). That was the first part of our weekend. Lovely, huh?
Things got much better on Valentine's Day. We had a perfect night together, we had dinner at Bonefish, then came home to watch the Notebook. We watched The Notebook on our second date, and I think Jared secretly likes it :)
Things are looking UP around here and Jared and I are convinced that our bad luck streak is a thing of the past. But rest assured, the next time it is Friday the 13th, I am staying in my bed!! :)
Jared has been getting ready for his first competition for his New Venture Development class, it has kept him really busy lately. It will all be over in May... how I long for the day :)
I am off to have dinner, watch Desperate and get a good night sleep... to get ready for another crazy week.
I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine's Day!!!
