Last night we met some friends to go to a Roller Derby together. I feel ashamed to say that this was my FIRST time to go, despite the fact that I’ve had friends who have participated in roller derbies literally for years and spanning 3 different states (friends I worked with in Austin did it, a fellow grad student from Florida did the derby, and now here in Arizona I’ve got another friend who participates).
We were rooting for the “Furious Truckstop Waitresses”
Sadly I could not get close enough to get a good picture, but their outfits were too cute – short pink dresses with black bottoms (tights/skirts/shorts/etc) and a little waitress apron. Having been a waitress for the better part of a decade, I loved it!
It was a little more “low budget” than what I had expected (notice the folding chairs?), but I still had a great time – as did Chris
And today has been another workout-heavy day. First, I got up and braved the Sunday-morning shoppers at a variety of grocery stores (I routinely visit 3 grocery stores: Trader Joes, Sunflower Farmer’s Market, and Fry’s). I LOVE how Sunflower’s has free coffee set out for shoppers
If you don’t consider grocery shopping a form of “exercise”, then you have never been in the thick of grocery-store traffic before!
After groceries, Chris and I hit up the local tennis court and played a game of tennis. Both of us played in High School and we still occasionally play here-and-there. It’s been such beautiful weather lately that it was really just a perfect day for it!
And finally, I went to my usual Sunday yoga class. I’ve still been doing the P90X videos as scheduled, but last week when I did the yoga video I HATED it! Didn’t even feel like yoga! Just a series of moves that weren’t connected and….I don’t know how to explain it, but it just didn’t feel “right.” I decided I’m going to substitute the yoga DVD for REAL yoga. I’m happy with my decision.
This Sunday is a little different than other Sunday nights. That’s because this upcoming week is technically my Spring Break week. I’m still going to be working, but I can work from home (Yay!) and I already know I’m going to play hooky on Friday so I can have a long weekend break – we’ve been toying with the idea of taking a day-trip somewhere. We really don’t have the funds to do anything extravagant, but there are tons of little fun cities within an hour drive or so (e.g., Tombstone & Bisbee top the list, but there are lots others). I should do a little internet research and see what looks fun!
I love doing “research” for fun trips and vacations!
Are you planning any upcoming vacations? Do you usually plan out trips, or just get the basics nailed down and go-with-the-flow?
I usually research lots of different options for sight-seeing, etc., then we can pick from stuff that we feel in the mood for while we’re actually on vacation.
