Today started very lazily. Who knew that I could sleep until 7:30...shesh?? Especially when Rich was up at 4:00 am to go work out, came in to shower at 5:00 am, AND came in to kiss me good-bye when he left for work at 6:00 am...and yet I slept. I am not going to lie, it felt real good.
Went to the gym to do a lifting class. I get real nervous going to a new class. I am a runner and that means me, myself, and I (and my i-pod) on the open road. I am worried that I am going to make a fool of myself in front of all those strangers. However, I held my own and I really enjoyed the class. The good thing is when you take an 8:30 am you get less of the I-am-here-to-pick-up-on-guys-and-am-half-naked chippies, and more of the just-took-my-kids-to-school-and-am-still-in-yoga-pants moms. I relate to the latter group...I felt right at home.
Came home to look at some random dozen posts, Oh yeah and I finally sat down today to do my taxes...phew I am glad that is over.
I worked on finishing sorting through Bella's room and it felt good to purge that little pack rat's room. I found things that I really had to wonder what possessed her to keep. I found gunky lip gloss, endless birthday party favors that never were used, and really how many half eaten candy necklaces does one girl need?? Then I started on my dresser and quickly realized the candy apple blow pop didn't fall far from the tree. I had jewelry that I hadn't worn for months...and when I say months I mean years. I mean really...do I need three flip flop necklaces? or two anklets when I don't like or wear anklets? Or a small collection of one earring...just hoping that one day the other one will suddenly appear? It wasn't a pretty sight. And don't even get me started on the collection of t-shirts that could clothe all the half naked chippies at the gym. I did a good job and I can safely say that all the things I kept I will wear or use at least once in the next year...maybe.
I also came home to the refrigerator light being out. It is amazing to me how much we depend on that light bulb. I mean I can hardly find anything in my refrigerator WITH it fully lit. In the dark it is hit or miss whether I grab the cottage cheese in the way back or the sour cream. Did you know that you need a special bulb for the fridge...you can't just grab one from stash? So this either means I will need to make a special trip to the store, remember that I need a bulb when I go to the store, or put it on my grocery list. Who am I kidding I am going to be using the braille method of finding my produce for the next month. Why do things like this have to be so difficult??
My taxes were easier.
