Today is the day for “Thinking Out Loud” which must mean that it is Thursday. Finally. Although so far this week has been kind of a whirlwind and I told Rob last night that I feel like it’s just been a really, really, long Monday. I had good intentions for getting things done this week but more things have just been getting in the way and work keeps piling up. Luckily I had some posts for the week drafted already, or they wouldn’t have happened this week. Anyway, thinking out loud is a great way to vent- so thanks! And thanks to Amanda as always for hosting.
I went to yoga on Tuesday, and I needed it desperately. I was rushing around trying to get there and was just thinking about how nice it would be to just lay on my mat and not move. I actually wondered if people ever do that- like go to the class and just stay in savasana the whole time. It ended up feeling good to move and I still got my 5-10 minutes of stillness at the end.
I seriously questioned if it would ever stop raining this week. After I left yoga on Tuesday night I saw the clouds rolling in and then the storms started later that night. I woke up to the rain, I ran through the rain Wednesday morning, and then it rained non-stop on Wednesday.
To make matters worse I had a 4:30 doctor’s appointment on Wednesday 25 minutes away from where I work. Yuck. The last thing I wanted to do was drive there in the rain and I knew there would be traffic. I rushed to get out of work a few minutes early and followed google maps to find the route with the least traffic possible. I made it just in time, only to be told they were running an hour behind schedule. REALLY?! How does that even happen? So next time I will be taking the first appointment of the day, thank you very much. So I finally got out of there hours later and then had to deal with more traffic coming back to the city, so clearly it was a fun afternoon all around:)
So then this happened:
Lately I’ve been enjoying listening to random older songs on iTunes. Like songs I haven’t thought about or heard in years. Preferably while drinking a glass of wine (see above).
I’ve also been meaning to share that my motivational bracelet came! I think I ordered it last Thursday (from Momentum)and it was delivered on Saturday, which is pretty remarkable considering it’s custom made. It’s too bad I didn’t have it in time to wear for my race, but that was my own fault for not planning ahead. I honestly thought it would take a few weeks so I was more concerned about having it for the marathon!
So that’s what I’ve been thinking about lately!
What’s been on your mind this week?
Is anyone else having a crazy, unpredictable week and would like to just check out for a day or two?
