A Relaxing Weekend

What a nice relaxing weekend. Friday night we just sat around and watched a movie here at home. Sarah went out with a friend and I suggested to Lisa that we actually go on a date but she wasn't up to it so we just ordered some Chinese food, rented a movie and had our date here at home. It was nice. Saturday I wasn't able to sleep in because Sarah had her first cross-country meet of the season. It was at a beautiful park out at El Cahon. When she works out her IBS always starts to act up a bit plus I think she had a touch of the flu so this has been a tough week for her. In spite of her rough week she did very well in her race. I think she was either 3rd of 4th in for the team and she was ahead of most of the pack of runners. We were all very pleased with her performance especially in light of the week she's had. Saturday afternoon Lisa, Sarah and I went and helped a new family move into the ward. This guy actually was in law school with Brandon in Malibu. He graduated in the spring but he hasn't been able to land a job so he's going to attend another year of school here at USD. After the move in I did some more odd jobs around the house and then we watched another movie.

Sunday was another relaxing day. I had to teach the adult gospel doctrine class so I always stress that a little bit but I think everything went well. Sunday evening Sarah once again went to another friends house and once again Lisa and I were alone. I've said it before but it certainly feels like we're already empty nesters.

Today was a holiday and once again Sarah was gone. In the morning I went for a two mile run. I'm all inspired by that book Kira got me for my birthday. "Born to Run". You really need to read it. After my run Lisa and I decided to take advantage of a beautiful San Diego day and head for the beach. I was expecting it to be wall to wall people but there was actually plenty of parking and plenty of room on the beach. It was a wonderful beach day. As we were setting up our chairs Carsten Kooyman and his daughter Abbie walked by with surf boards under their arms. They are both entered in a surfing competition on Saturday and they were squeezing in a few minutes of practice. Lisa and went and watched them. Abbie is only nine years old (or there abouts) but she's already a pretty good surfer. It was a lot of fun watching them. It was also pretty sad because washed up on the beach not far from where we were was a dead Sea Lion. I've never seen something like that before. It looked like it had been dead for a while. On our way home from the beach we stopped at Roberto's and I ordered a Carnita's Burrito. Lisa ordered a Carne Asada burrito but didn't like it so I ate a Carne Asada Buritto and Lisa ate a Carnitas Burrito. They were both very good.

So that was pretty much my weekend. I was able to get well relaxed and now I'm ready to go back to work tomorrow. I love my life.

A lizard can't run and breath at the same time. It has to hold it's breath while it's running.

Lizards run fast but you'll notice that they don't run very far.
