Things are finally right for me
Sun is shining I’m feeling free
My heart is whole I can finally breathe
The horizon I can see
You may have noticed that I didn’t blog yesterday. (Or maybe you didn’t notice, since it’s only been in the past month that I’ve been blogging really regularly. Or maybe you didn’t notice because my blog is just not that important to you. Don’t worry, I can take it). Despite the fact that I had not one but two flights yesterday (thanks to a cancellation of my original nonstop), which is when I often knock out a quick post, I was swamped with work and ended up working straight through till bed last night. Can we say stressful? I haven’t gotten more than 6 hours of sleep per night in the last week, and all I want to do is wave a magic wand and have everything erased from my to-do list!
Fortunately, this morning I woke up and got my butt in gear – thanks in part to the happy pick-me-up “La Ti Da” song playing on my phone as I got ready for the day. 30 minutes of weight lifting, breakfast with my best friend, and home to work for the morning. By 10am, I had already knocked out a big deck that was really weighing down my to-do list, and I continued cranking away on several other outstanding items. After a doctor’s appointment mid-morning, it was time to head into the office, where I continued to get things done… and I’m now leaving the office with only one thing left on my to-do list (at least, my work to-do list… lots of errands) for this weekend! Hooray 🙂
Tonight: first date, which I have been told by two friends I ought to live tweet so they can pass their own judgment on the guy. Thanks, but no thanks… unless the date is totally awful! Haha, just kidding. They’ll have to wait till tomorrow’s long runs (Manhattan Hot Chocolate 10K followed by the City Bakery Run) to hear all about it. Meanwhile, I am super excited about the City Bakery run in particular, as February is their “hot chocolate festival” month, where they feature a different hot chocolate flavor every day. Tomorrow’s pick? “Banana Peel Hot Chocolate.” I can’t think of a better post-run treat – yum!
TGIF, everyone! 🙂
