Monday Recap-I actually ran!-P.S. I Love You Movie Review

Monday Recap

Yesterday was a bit of a bust on behalf of my list. Oh well, those days happen. I got a load of laundry washed and dried but didn't get it out of the dryer yet. I didn't get the upstairs bathroom cleaned. I didn't go to the YMCA, the pool is still closed for maintenance.

Tuesday GamePlan
  • Meeting with my bride (I am organizing a wedding)
  • Warm up dinner (still leftovers-we need to get rid of this stuff!)
  • Finish load of laundry from yesterday
  • Clean upstairs bathroom
  • Begin cleaning out car
  • Run/Walk for 30 minutes
I actually ran!
So with the pool closed and my gym buddy still in Portland I decided to not go to the gym at all. The classes I go to if the pool is closed are quite clicky. Most of the people are teachers and so they gossip the whole time since they know all the same people. I loathe going in there by myself. So as you know my goal for the year is to run in the Apple Festival 4K. Well, Emily, a blogger friend and friend through a friend suggested the couch potato to 5K training program. So I copied what they did and simplified it to fit me a little bit. So I ran a block, walked a block, and so on for 30 minutes. I was surprised I could actually do it! This morning my legs are a little sore, which is a good thing. So perhaps I will be a runner in 2009!

P.S. I Love You-Movie Review

I had seen previews for this movie a while back and thought it looked great. A total chick flick that I would watch by myself or with girlfriends. Yesterday Red Box had a free promo code so I could get a free movie. What a perfect time!

The move was about 2 hours long, and I cried for a solid 2 hours. It totally sucked me in! If you are willing to cry until your eyes are puffy you will enjoy it. The ending did make me smile.

So after watching this movie and crying the whole time and asking God to please not let this happen to my husband I realized something. I probably shouldn't watch movies or read books where the husband or wife dies, I just can't take it! After reading the Notebook and staying up all night crying and praying I told my mother not to give book like that again-she now screens them!

I will still probably continue to subject myself to these cryfest movies. I know I shouldn't. So here is your "pre-screen" on the movie-now choose for yourself!

5 Minutes-Buy the stamps for your cards for the year and put them on the envelopes. Make sure you only put the stamps on the ones you are sure you will mail. Great tip Liz!

I did hear it was a really sad movie. Sorry.
I cry reading Hallmark cards at the store.
