Does everyone just wake up on the wrong side of the bed on Mondays? Is there some kind of energy that exists that makes everyone cranky right away? I woke up mildly crabby, mostly because I slept like crap last night, and then was very nearly run into by some asshat in an SUV running a stop sign. Then he honked at me. (I didn’t have a stop sign, so I didn’t stop. So, you know, my bad.)
Then, there was a mildly annoying incident at work, which has continued to annoy me mildly all day.
Anyways, on to more interesting stuff. So, Friday night, I met the architect at Amnesia Brewing Company, and then we headed down the street to Equinox for dinner& drinks. I had the stuff chicken and a martini (or two), and it was so good. Also, we had the most wonderful dessert. Equinox doesn’t have their dessert menu online, and I can’t remember what it was called, but it was so good, I thought about taking it and renting a room for the weekend. Seriously. That good.
Saturday was kind of a lazy day. We went to the lumber yard to buy some stuff as we work on finishing up the flooring project, and spent most of the day doing a whole lot of nothing. Although I did finally learn how to change my bike tires. The actual job is difficult to comprehend, just really, really hard to execute. I’m in big trouble if I ever get a flat during a race – it took me FOREVER, lots of cursing, and a lovely bruise on my right bicep before I got even one of them changed.
Yesterday, I rode my bike, and the tires held up to that. I hit about 16 miles yesterday (although Mr. Show-off, aka the architect, rode 40 miles), and then followed it up with an almost-5K (2.8 miles). When I started running, I felt like I was running in slow motion, and thought my time was going to be horrible, but I ended up averaging a 10.5 minute mile, which is pretty good, considering that I don’t usually run after a 70 minute ride. Except for that whole swimming part (I actually swam last week – so yay for me), I’m feeling good about my triathlon.
Today I get to go to a board meeting after work. Woo. Stupid board. Stupid board that is giving me a service award, making it virtually impossible for me to resign from the board. And, it’s a 2-year term, so I’m not even half-way through my term yet.
Tomorrow, though, there is knitting. And a nice run, hopefully. And, if I can get myself together in the morning, maybe a swim. We’ll see about that part.
Starting next week, work will be my home, so I’m hoping to not burn out. My stealth plans include taking this Friday off. (woo! Two 4-day weeks in a row, separated by a 4-day weekend! I did the same thing last year, and ended up extending my time off because I had surgery…hoping for NOT a repeat of that this year.)
So – hopefully this evening will go quickly & painlessly. I do get to have Subway, which is kinda awesome. I love Subway. Not sure why – I’ve certainly had better sandwiches elsewhere, but I just do.
So – happy Monday & happy week. I’ll try to get some more porn up this week!
