Pool, Sorry, Movies & Fun Facts Friday - I Get Annoyed

Pool, Sorry, Movies
Just a follow-up on the babysitting. It went off without a hitch other than A wouldn't let me brush her tangled mess of hair. She has an incredibly tender head (just like me), and basically refuses to let anyone brush it. At the same time, she wants her hair long because her friends have long hair.

When they first arrived it was a barrage of questions and chatter. They could make your head spin with the questions alone. You can't possible answer them all even! They quickly changed into their swimsuits and jumped in the pool with their Uncle Jason while Sarah and I visited a bit before she left for her date.

I finally got in the pool with them with the stipulation that we had to get out to eat in 15 minutes. Pretty said that to get them out of the pool I had to get in the pool. I didn't get our dinner done before they arrived so it was just sitting their taunting me. A had not eaten dinner yet either.

We got them bathed, dried, changed and then they wanted to play Sorry. I think there is another game with sorry in the title so this wasn't exactly what they expected. When C started losing he decided he was done. A kept thinking she was losing, but won against Jason. Sort of...she did count 2 spaces for 1 to make herself win but Jason was beyond ready to eat and absolutely didn't care LOL.

We went through a few shows/movies and arguments (A wanted only princess movies) before settling on A Wrinkle In Time. They weren't exactly up for watching the season premier of Big Brother for some reason. Anyway, we all had a good evening. Nothing was broken, no one cried, all good.

Today & Tomorrow
Today is my much-needed rest day. I really hoped I might just wake up on my own for a run this morning but didn't really think it would happen. Tonight we're going to a baseball game with some friends. Really looking forward to that as we haven't been to a game yet this season.

Tomorrow is going to be a crazy busy day for us. We're heading to the lake with my family then I'm having a late lunch with a dear friend that moved away. We haven't seen each other in probably 7 years or more. And to top that all off, it's another friend's birthday, so we'll be heading over to her house to celebrate. I'm already tired thinking about the day, but I know it'll be a good one.

Fun Facts Friday - I Get Annoyed
I must start off saying that I debated on this list. I didn't want it to be taken negatively. I want it to be read playfully, with a sense of humor. Because really, sometimes annoyances are just comical if you think about it. Yes, some can be serious of course. You can't make them all go away regardless. And maybe sometimes it's the reason why you find something annoying that makes it comical.

Anyway, we all get annoyed by things. I don't care how happy go luck you are either. Sometimes it's big things, sometimes little things. Sometimes it's something totally odd and random. But sometimes it's just something that seems to annoy most everyone, except the very few causing the annoyance. How does that happen by the way?

Here's my list of what annoys me:
  • People who smoke right at the entrance of a building - Thank you for making me walk through your bad habit. 
  • Tailgaters - seriously, get off my ass. I already speed thank you very much. You're just an accident waiting to happen.
  • People who honk unnecessarily - don't honk at me for backing out of my driveway when my freaking break lights are on. I'm easing out so I can see just like you would. Or don't honk unless someone really almost causes an accident. 
  • People who honk at runners/cyclist - do not do this. It can startle the runner/cyclist and cause and accident. 
  • Birds - sometimes birds can be loud and obnoxious. 
  • Mean people - there's really no reason to just be mean and ugly. Period. Even if you're annoyed by someone, you don't have to be mean. 
  • People talking or texting on their phones at the gym - unless you're on call or waiting for a very important call/message, you should be there working not chatting. 
  • People not wiping down benches at the gym - you just sweated all over it, please wipe it down.
  • People who toss trash into a can and it misses but they leave it - if you didn't notice, that's one thing, but someone else has to pick it up. Wonder if they do that at home?
  • Pedestrians having a party in the crosswalks - I stop for you, I promise, but when you take an hour to get across the street because you're chatting it up with friends, I suddenly don't want to stop for you. Once the light turns, I can't go anymore and I'm stuck waiting through another light. 
Ok, I know the list could go on for days right? I want to hear some of your annoyances. Grunting at the gym? People not stopping for pedestrians? What about the person pushing the buggy right up against you while waiting in line?

Daily To-Enjoy List
  • Rest day
  • Baseball game
  • The fact that it's Friday

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too

Hitting the Gym and Lazy Means Creative Tex-Mex Creation

Sunday, Gym Day Why do vacations and min-vacations go by so quickly? Just doesn't seem quite right. Anyway, we left Branson around 9:30 am to head back home. It was a pretty uneventful drive back, which is usually a good thing. We got home and unpacked, then I headed up to the gym. I started with a 10-minute treadmill run to warm up before hitting the weights for back and light legs then abs. I went with a giant set for back then supersets for legs. GS - 4x8 Underhand barbell rows Pullovers Double-arm rows SS#1 Rear-leg elevated lunges (Bulgarian Split Squats) - 3x8 Calf raises - 3x20 SS#2 - 2x8 Walking lunges Plie squats with low-end pulse Single-leg deadlifts - 2x8 I did some ab exercises, stretched, and called it quits. Lazy = Crazy Dinner I may have made it to the gym and washed a few loads of laundry, but I never made it to the grocery store - lounging in the pool trumped grocery shopping. This meant getting creative with dinner. We had another package
