So needless to say, I was exhausted by Friday. Boyfriend's grandma moved away this weekend (this is extremely sad as I LOVE his grandma and enjoyed having brunch with her every Sunday), so we went down to her house to say goodbye. Then I was in bed the minute we got home.
Saturday, I did homework for several hours before forcing boyfriend to the gym.
This happens so rarely that it has to be documented. We worked on arms and did some couples ab exercises. We were probably the cutes kids in the gym.
Saturday night, we had plans at my friend's house. We were having a goodbye party for our friend who has gotten a teaching job out of the area. My good friend had us in tears laughing when she tried do show us her card "illusions."
This morning, I was up a little early because my mom and I were going to run the annual Mother's Day race. As the 10:00 start time got closer and closer, I realized that I did not want to run fast and if I was racing, I'd be pushing myself to go fast. My legs are still smoked from last weekend. So we went here instead.
Luckily, my mom wanted to go hiking instead of racing also. It was gorgeous outside, yet a little windy. And by a little, I mean a lot.
We started by hiking around the beach. Mom and I tried not to get blown away.
Boyfriend climbed things because that's what he does.
He also took some really good pictures from way up there.
From the beach, we continued our adventure in the redwoods.
My mom didn't want to spend all day in the forest since it was so sunny, but we found out that it was actually much warmer under the trees away from the wind.
We eventually found my brother who had been at school all day finishing up final projects. He graduates on Saturday from undergrad. It's a running joke that I'm the one graduating and he's crashing my party. I keep telling him my name will be on the cake and his will be really small underneath. My graduation ceremony is at 3:30 while his is at 8:00am, so I keep telling my family they should just come to mine.
The day ended with boyfriend and me making dinner for our moms.
It was a lovely weekend. Basically the calm before the storm that this week will be. Tomorrow I am going back to the middle school for one more day because I had already committed to subbing before my big offer came up. Then we have our last class on Tuesday. My entire family comes into town on Friday and Saturday is graduation! I am in major denial that school is over and I am going to be a credentialed teacher.
How was your Sunday? Anyone else extremely busy??
