Molly and I didn't walk to church today because we did the 5k late last night. Or so I thought..
Rich and I went to church and he said that he wanted to go out for lunch as usual afterward. We stopped for gas, then headed to Lee's, our fav Chinese restaurant. As we pulled up, we saw Mike and Terry, friends of ours from church. Lee's and Sizzlers are the 2 restaurants that our church family frequents, so it wasn't unusual to run into someone from church when there.
Mike & Terry invited us to sit with them and Rich picked the largest table grouping in the restaurant. I told him that we should leave that setting for someone who had a larger group, then another couple came in from church. And another. And another. Then Rich said, "Oh. Happy Birthday!" I started to send Molly a text telling her that Rich threw a surprise party for me when I turn around and here she comes in with a birthday cake that she stayed home from church to bake for me!
She made a fabulous deep chocolate brownie cake with cream cheese frosting. It was sugar- and fat-free and the cake was dairy free. Delicious! Rich gave me $500 and told me to go shopping.
Molly and I went shopping when we got done with dinner. I bought little today; a workout top, a sweater, some air-wic socks. I think I will get another of the workout tops and I want a rebounder for working out this rainy season. The rest will get stashed away for when I see something...
Long story, short, I got under 11,000 steps in today, but I won't sweat it! I haven't gotten that few in weeks. Oh, well. Tomorrow we will walk over the big mountain before work, so I will burn my butt then. And Molly and I are re-joining Body Blast at the Y. It is a burning circuit training workout held on T/Th.
I am off to do a short run and get my steps in before showering and hitting the sack. Unti tomorrow..good night!
