This weekend seriously went by in a blur, and I don’t think that’s a good thing. I did get a ton of stuff done, but the next couple weeks are going to be very hectic, so I’m getting a little nervous.
I’m a volunteer for the AHEPA Marrow Basketball Tournament, which takes place March 9-13. The purpose of the tournament is help raise funds so we can do more drives to find matches for cancer patients in need of a perfect bone marrow match. I’m in charge of most of the tournament book, conducting drives and clock/book during games. Getting everything done in time is always a struggle, but I’ll do my best.
On Friday, I got suckered into giving Paul a ride downtown to meet his friends at a bar. They left at about 7 p.m. and Paul wasn’t even near ready yet. It only took 25 minutes there and 25 minutes back, but after driving 1 1/2 hours to get to and from work everyday, I just hate being in the car.
After that little trip, I had a girls night with two of my besties. We watched “Life as We Know it,” had some mixed drinks and a box of Wheat Thins. The movie was still adorable, even though I had already seen it before. Nights like this are my favorite. I’d much rather sit indoors with friends than go out to a crazy club. Plus, I can wear sweats!
It was Paul’s brother’s birthday on Saturday, so we had a little get-together at Paul’s.
We stuffed ourselves with spicy chicken wings, biscuit and good old French fries.
On Saturday night, I went with my family to the social event to kick off the basketball tournament. It was at this cute new restaurant in Boy’s Town called Kanela. They served appetizers that were really delicious, and we got the first drink on the house. I was really happy that we had a decent showing there, and we raised more than $100 in donations!
Instead of my typical Sunday, in which I just lounge around, I went all the way to the South side to watch my brother’s championship basketball game for the church league he plays in. They ended up losing by about 10, but my brother played pretty well. I know he took the loss really hard, just like me. Since he’s only a junior, he’ll have next year to play, also. Maybe they can get the big W then!
Now I’m off to watch the Oscar’s, eat some pizza (I promise to eat healthy all week!) and catch up on blogs!
Do you volunteer for any organizations? Do you have a favorite chick flick? How do you get yourself back on track after a weekend of unhealthy eating?
