Today is my Friday – I love the invention of the 9×80 workweek even if I do end up working on Sundays. It’s just nice to have a weekday to tackle all the things you can’t normally get done on a weekend. Oh and also have some “me time” which will include a sweaty workout, a car wash (for my car that is), and an iced latte if I’m good I also need to make a Target run and I think I need to come home with one of these:
Another piece of great news to share? Airfare ticket prices went down for August travel to Philly (à Healthy Living Summit)! They were $600 at the beginning of the week and I snagged direct flights both ways for $339 yesterday. SCORE! Now who wants to be roomies with me
Lately I’ve had a major case of the crabbypants. Don’t ask me why. I wake up every day in a foul mood, and this never happens. I’m a total morning person. Actually, come to think of it, when I get to sleep 10+ hours on the weekend, I wake up just fine.
And I gotta tell ya, there really is something to that whole “waking up on the wrong side of the bed” thing. I’m finding my sour mood is perpetuating my days. At work, I can be high functioning and smile and engage, but I immediately turn off when I get home. And then I get bored. I finish my workouts, my chores (dog walking, laundry, dishes, etc), watch some DVRed shows, and then sit on my rump feeling lame. Perhaps I’m in bestie withdrawal from this girl?
Luckily I get to see her on Saturday! She’s coming into Cali for her sister’s and a friend’s baby shower and I’m going to meet her near Sacramento for din-din. It will be too little time of course, but I also am spending the 4th of July weekend with her in Tahoe. Yipppeee! Hey, look I’m smiling already
I think another thing that’s bumming me out is that the hubby and I want to move. We desperately want a yard for Naava (the dog) and hardwood floors to keep cleaner as a result of both the dog and the cats. Problem is, no one wants to rent to people with dogs. See our dilemma? Well, wait, I should modify that, if we were willing to pay $3500/mo, we may have more luck, but I’m having a hard enough time stomaching $3K / month. Dang Cali prices. And don’t get me started on a just buying a home. Prices have *not* fallen in NorCal – and putting the requisite 20% (aka $200,000 in cash) down for a ho-hum small ranch house that needs fixing up is no bueno to me. Ooo just thinking about it makes me blood boil a bit. So let’s stop this talk shall we.
I need to get in OGM – that’s Operation Good Mood. Here’s the start of my OGM list:
1) Go out to lunch with a friend at least once a week (on a work day…gasp!)
2) Date nights once a week during the week (already doing this, but must continue)
3) Go out at least one other night, even if for fro yo, gelato, dinner, group workout, etc
4) Spend >30 minutes in the sunshine each weekend day (by the pool, at Starbucks…)
5) Pedis every 3-4 weeks (already do this, but must continue)
6) More phone calls to friends / family so I don’t feel so lonely in Cali
What else can I add to my list?
Have you had the coconut Twix? Yay or nay? Or would you try it?
