Well, my weekend was good. I felt so exhausted yesterday that I switched my day off on Friday for yesterday. Don't know why but I was so tired (and it was more than a Monday-morning tiredness). We didn't too much this weekend. We did go see a couple of movies: "Get Smart" (I thought it was pretty funny) and "Kung Fu Panda" (eh).

I did get some bad news Saturday morning...one of my sisters (actually my stepsister) had a house fire Friday night and lost pretty much everything. She's married and they have 3 kids (one that was just born in February). So Stephen and I put together a care package of toys, books, etc to send to my nieces. Luckily, no one was hurt but the way the fire started, the fire marshal said that if they'd been even a minute later realizing their house was on fire, they wouldn't have been able to get to the baby's room and get her out of her crib. Scary stuff.

Today's Plan:
Activity: Run at lunch
Pre-breakfast Breakfast: 1 clif z bar while waiting for the subway at 5:30 this morning
Breakfast: 1 english muffin with 1 slice fat free cheese and 1 morningstar breakfast patty
Snack: 1/4 cantaloupe, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1 Kashi cereal bar
Lunch: 1/2 piece whole grain naan, 2 Tbsp hummus, Spinach salad with 1 Tbsp dressing, 1 banana, 1 orange, 1 cup grapes
Dinner: Pork chops with tomato-apricot chutney, mushroom risotto, vegetable chunk salad

Sorry about your sister. That must be devestating, but you're right, at least they're okay.

Glad you got some rest, chica. Your menu looks delicious!

Ohmigoodness that is terrifying!!! They are very lucky then! That is so sweet of you to put together the care package!!!

Glad you took some "you" time! You definitely needed it!

I saw "Get Smart" this weekend too, and I thought it was great!

That would be a horrible experience, at least everyone is okay.

You wait for the Subway at 530 AM? I remember starting work at 530 and would never volunteer to do it again. I have so much respect for you early-morning people.

Very glad to hear that everyone is safe!

Jealous of your movie going. I really need to find an actual babysitter.
