Any given weekend

Over the course of the year I've had all sorts of weekends.

When I was a little girl it was all about birthday parties, going out to family events or just try to stay up a little later than usual.

Then when school years came, it was all about sleepovers or pajama parties, going rollerblading, maybe to a friends pool and if lucky, catch a movie without any grownup supervision!

As I ventured into my teens and high school years, weekends were about being on the phone for hours with girlfriends taking about the latest gossip, boys and that family event we were pretty much forced to attend. Also in my case I can't forget those times when I used to leave homework for Sunday night ( last minute deal after procrastinating all weekend long) when the assignment was due Monday first period.

Years went by and then weekends were all about going out with friends. This are the years when I was either close to 18 or already 18 so in CR this means legal to drive, to drink and to vote (but not necessary in that order), and that's when the fun on weekends begin, I had a few "party hardy" years myself. Those were the years when I would go out pretty much every night of the weekend, sometimes getting home with the early morning newspaper, just in time to crash for a few hours, charge batteries and then go out again at night... good times!

Then the real deal with college begins and in my case so was my first job (part time while in school). Then that's when things start to change because, you either have too much to study or you simply start working on weekends, so so in my case I started slowing down, maybe got together with friends, have some drinks or even just catching a happy hour after work to get home early, study some more or just get the "beauty sleep" for next day.

Now a days my weekends are all about chilling out, I like to stay home, watch movies, maybe go for a dive (although with my arm situation I haven't been doing much of that lately), work on the yard, etc. But mostly, my weekends nowadays are to rest and spend time with my husband. Sometimes we go to dinner at a nice restaurant and go shopping together for stuff we just can't go do during the week.

This past weekend, for a change, in a long time, we catch the release of a brand new movie: Iron Man 2, it was awesome! (well if you are into super heroe/action movies or into Robert Downey Jr- like me, I'm into both!!).

To the movies we went with some friends that are going through a very difficult time; their dog Angel has been pretty sick for a while, so finally they had to make the decision to put her down the next day on Saturday. So a movie on the previous night was a good deal to take their mind off such a hard and difficult decision, I am very sad for them.

On Saturday I went to get another test for my arm, this time it was an EMG which is an electromyogram, that measures the electrical impulses of muscles at rest and during contraction. So basically, I went to see a doctor that gave me electric shocks on my arm (not pleasant!) to find out if my problem is a pinched nerve, well it looks like I don't, what's going on is a chronic tendonitis in both my elbow and my shoulder (more on treatment later). 

Also I have to mention that my doctor was a Russian visiting Neurologist and after watching IM2 the night before, getting electric shocks from a Russian was not that fun (when you watch the movie you'll know what I mean).

The on Saturday afternoon we finally made up our mind and went looking for a new grill, we found a great deal and upgraded in a very nice way, this is out new baby:

Then yesterday was just a very nice day, sunny and hot, we went to the beach, did some snorkeling and then watched a movie at home, now my batteries are charged and I am ready to start my week.
Have a wonderful Monday!

Saludos de California!! Just read about you on Daily Vitamin Sea. That picture of you is adorable. It has also been my dream to live on an island. Still working on that dream, but it is inspiring to see it can be done. Love your new grill and your blog.
