Poker games, trivia games, shower games, the Oscars … this past week has been chock full of events that have winners. So, I thought it only fitting to choose the title for this week’s Weblog Wednesday post to be related to games and awards.
Last Wednesday night, Dear Husband hosted his second weekly poker night at our house. Having no interest in poker, I spent the evening in my Lady Lair blogging, while he and the guys played poker in his Man Cave. I don’t recall who won their tournament that evening, but I don’t think it was my husband.
On Thursday night we went to our usual weekly trivia night at our favorite local Mexican restaurant.
(Side note: Yes, I realize in the photo above that the apostrophe should not be in “the Gary’s.” That is one of those grammar rules that honestly can make it harder to read in a colloquial setting such as a trivia night. “Garys” looks like it ought to be pronounced gah-riss.)
I am pleased to announce that we took second place in the trivia!
Friday and Saturday I honestly was not feeling well. It was so strange: beginning midday on Friday I got a pretty bad lightheaded feeling and felt as though I might faint at any moment. Thankfully I felt well enough to attend my friend’s baby shower on Saturday. The yummy cake they served helped me feel better, I think. 😊
And Sunday of course was the Academy Awards. Now, it may surprise those of you who know me to hear that I care at all about watching the Oscars, since I don’t watch movies (for the most part). However, I just love seeing the red carpet fashions and watching these celebrities whom I know nothing about patting themselves on the back.
Watching the red carpet arrivals, I was pleased to see Other Husband arrive. (I love Keith Urban!)
So far this week there have been no more games or awards of which to speak. Monday was cold and rainy and full of meetings, but a coworker graciously brought in donuts for the office.
When I got home from work, I cooked a recipe for dinner that I’ll be featuring on the blog later this week: blue ranch meatloaf. Also, my thredUP package arrived – hooray!
I definitely can’t wait to post about the unboxing and how everything worked out.
And now it’s a slightly less cold, slightly less rainy Tuesday. I can’t lie — the long commute of this new job is proving really stressful for me. I’m gone for 11 hours straight each weekday, often with no break in the day. It’s tough. Some days I feel like I can barely keep my head above water with training, blogging, cooking, cleaning, and this little tiny thing called sleeping.
Anyway, all I can do is try to manage my time as best as possible and know when to scale back so that I don’t stretch myself too thin.
Tell me, how has your week been?
Until next time,
