Seeing as how things are kinda busy in my life, yet still astoundingly mundane, I have no idea what to write about today. Suggestions, anyone? I’ll consider any and all requests . . . .
Yep, it’s that time of year again. No matter what you do, the house smells like wet dog. Appealing, isn’t it?
To top it off, I’m also dogsitting, so I’ve spent lots of time two doors down–with three more dogs. And thus the reason for a small posting tonight. I am just not inspired by this weather.
The joy of working from home is that no one knows that I am schlepping around the house in comfy clothes. I am still nursing my leg from my graceful fall down the sanctuary steps last week, and despite my attempts to get to the gym and swim today I ended up sitting in front of a computer instead. The result? Yeah, I’m not presentable. That’s the easy way of putting it. But I’m dang comfy though!!!
I didn’t skip posting last night! I just came home and the power was out due to the crazy winds. I went to bed early because I had to get up at 530 AM which, for me, is a darn near impossibility!
I really don’t have much to write about today. I could pull out the Best Sellers game, but honestly it’s in the other room. Nothing noteworthy happened today. I woke up, ate breakfast and had some tea while I read a book, did some work around the house, looked for a job, went to the hospital to get my shots, went to the gym, came home and made chicken noodle soup from scratch, watched the men’s figure skating competition from last night (yes, I avoided spoilers all day), then came in the back room for more computer work and to finally read the Olympic headlines. Now I’m off to bed.
Did I mention I’m Olympics obsessed? Yeah, I think I did. I’ll try and do a round up tomorrow before I go to a concert, but who knows if that will happen! Depends on my productivity level during the day!
This morning, the second day of Lent, I woke up with the alarm but later than I would have liked. Hey, with the alarm is better than the usual, which is without. I got caught up in something this morning, maybe it was last night’s episode of Shear Genius, anyway, before I knew it I had sat around the house for an hour longer than intended. I wanted to go to the gym and swim today, but I had a luncheon with former coworkers downtown at 1245. I require at least two hours to swim–an hour in the water minimum, then the 30 minute reward in the sauna, then shower and change. So I wasn’t going to be able to do that and then get home in time to change for my luncheon without really hustling and worrying about time. And really, what’s the use in working out if you’re stressed out about time? (Yeah, I know it’s a lame excuse, but it’s what I got.) So no gym today. Which meant around 1015 I was done with all my computer work for the day, done with TV, done with everything, and didn’t feel like getting dressed yet. So I just kinda bummed around. I called my dad. No answer. I called B, even though she’s at work. No answer. Finally caved and called mom because I knew that would be at least a half hour gone.
I got dressed and went to my lunch, finally, and had a good time. Ran an errand or two, hung some fliers for the upcoming children’s production at church, and then home. Where I tried to do more computer work and promptly fell asleep in the chair around 6 for about half an hour.
I could have been much more productive today, I know I could have. I just didn’t really want to. It was just one of those days.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
As a single woman, it’s usually just a day to me. How pleasantly surprised was I to come home from the ballet this afternoon and see a present on my kitchen counter from the NoMH and his son. Too cute! Wonderful treat!
I have mixed feelings on this holiday. I have been with people on Valentine’s day and had an awesome Hallmark holiday. I have been with people on Valentine’s day and realized that the relationship was, in essence, over. I have been alone on Valentine’s day and been miserable. I have been alone on Valentine’s day and been perfectly happy.
Today has been a good day. Overslept and missed church, which was a bummer. Volunteered for the ballet, and then got to leave early (wasn’t a great show). Came home to my candy surprise, took a nap, and then talked to a friend for an hour that I haven’t talked to since New Year’s Eve. Come to think of it, we were together on Valentine’s about fifteen years ago (fourteen?). Nice that we’re still friends. And tomorrow is his birthday to boot, happy 40th!
I don’t have a lot to talk about today, it’s been a good day albeit uneventful. So instead I’ll leave you with this photo of two ocean creatures not normally known for their canoodling, and wish you all a good night!
