TGIF

Whoa, thank goodness it is finally Friday! Did we all make it? Was this week crazy or what? 

Started with a fascinating lecture on Monday night at The Madeira School by Dr. Leonard Sax on the role social media plays in the development of girls. Some scary stats but much of it combated by structured, loving, engaged parenting. 

Tuesday was a lovely night with my sister and nieces as we shared a girls night including delicious Lilly Magilly’s. We had a great time doing girly things and laughing.

Thursday night was our orientation for the Bethesda Bocce League (Go Thurifers!) followed by the largest plate of cheese-bacon tater tots I have ever seen in my entire life.

Tonight is the celebration of my Dad’s birthday with some Akbar and a concert at the Baltimore Symphony. I’m very excited to see my Dad and spend time with my sisters. Oh and a few veggie samosas don’t hurt!

What a crazy week huh? I am not so good at anything when I don’t get to bed by 9:30.  I did not swim this week which was really based on a desire to sleep more in the mornings. I ran a few steps with the track team but I know I need more hard core cardio so that I can in turn have more quality sleep. I make a lot of excuses for missing bits of exercise and I don’t want to do that in this upcoming week. Bloggy friends can you help me to be accountable??

As for tomorrow, I want to let my body dictate the day with regard to rest and activity. Hopefully I can get a bike ride before the torrential rain pounds the East Coast. Sunday it is off to NYC see the world’s best choir director/mentor in the world conduct his very final choral conducting appearance capping off 50 years of a conducting career. I’m so blessed that I will be in the audience for Dr. Weymuth’s farewell

Are you totally wiped out this week? Have you ever played Bocce? Have you ever had an amazing mentor? 

Happy Weekend!!

    100% wiped out. Not sure where it ends. Need sleep. Totally with you. And, Lilly McGilly’s makes everything ok.
