Too long and too tired!

This has been a very long day.  I just finished my workouts/stretches for today.  I didn't walk.  I have been gone since around noon and I got home at around 10 pm.  My TV decided to act up.  It won't turn on or off except with the button on the tv.  The remote won't work it.  The menu screen on the television is all wonky.  I got so frustrated, that I moved it to the other room and brought the old one back.  I'll mess with it again when I'm fresher and I am not so annoyed and irritated.  It worked just FINE yesterday. ~_~;

Anyway.  It's been a bad day all around so I'm closing for now.  I hope to have a cheerier post tomorrow.

Colors are fun!

I found a pretty colorful polka dot background so I change the colors of the blog again. I love it for the moment.  I'll probably be ready to change it in a few days. :p  For now, it's pretty and I like it!

I got in my walk, it was hot out there!  I got home and did my workouts.  I ate lunch and then did a few things I needed.  A friend brought me a nice 'new' television.  It's got a nice picture and the sound is great.  I was on my way to another friend's house when he came, so after he left, I headed out.

It was supposed to be a birthday dinner for my friend's mom.  The lady that usually comes with her was sick, so she wanted to wait until she could come too.  We'll just have the dinner another day.  I ended up staying for dinner.  There was grilled chicken and it was delicious.  There may have been cupcakes too. ^^;

So, I'm home now.  I have a few things to do and then I'm going to relax before bedtime.  I am so tired tonight.  I didn't sleep as well as I'd have liked last night.  I hope to make up for that tonight!

Wednesday means ....

Well, as usual, it means I go to Starbucks!  This week's trip was cut a bit short though. :(  I got there a little earlier than usual.  I was able to get my favorite chair from the start.  I got my drink and sat down and started writing letters.  I got four done and was starting on number five when a friend called.  They wanted me to drop by and eat some leftovers so they could clean out the fridge.  I went, even though I wasn't ready to leave Starbucks yet.  I got there and they had cupcakes! @_@; I may have had one.... or two. ^^;  I ran an errand for them and I also picked up my prescriptions while I was out.

I did get in my walk today.  It was HOT.  I came home from my walk and did my workouts.  I ate lunch and relaxed for a few minutes before going to Starbucks.  I finished the letter that I started over there.  I have all the letters all ready to go out in tomorrow's mail.  As soon as I post this, I'm going to relax until bedtime.  I want to play SpellTower. :)  It's this addictive game that I got some time back as a free app of the week at Starbucks.  I've had it on my iPod ever since.  Today, I bought the Android version.  Now I'll have it on my phone too!  It's so fun and it's so addicting.  I love word games!

No subject for this one

I got in a good walk today.  It was quite warm out there.  I knew I had to come home to the #1000squatchallenge  That was insane, but I did it.  There were only two workouts on today's calendar.  The squat one was 45 minutes long!  The other was a  cardio one that was less than 6 minutes.  I got both of them done and then ate lunch.  

After that, I did a few things I needed to do.  I was deciding what I was going to do for the rest of the evening. My friend texted and asked if I wanted to ride with him a bit later.  He just got a 'new' car.  I agreed, so he picked me up.  We drove over to Eden, NC.  It was almost 9 by that point.  He got us dinner at the Circle drive in.  Not healthy food, but delicious food!  We ate and then headed back.

He dropped me off and I came in.  I got one more letter today, so I have five letters for tomorrow's Starbucks visit.  If I get anymore tomorrow, it's going to be hard. :P Oh well, I'm always happy to get letters!  Hopefully I'll get even more new pals.

I forgot to mention that in between lunch and going out with my friend, I washed my hair.  The poor mess needed it!  The days it rained, I had to wear a cap, so it was sort of gross. :P  Anyway! I'll close for now.  I want to relax before bed.  I've been crashing earlier and earlier recently.  I just need to sleep for about two years.


So, I got in my walk today.  It was cloudy, then sunny, then cloudy, then sunny.  It couldn't make up it's mind.  At least it didn't rain at all!  I went to the post office and was happy to see mail in there.  I had four letters! Yay!  Now I'll have some letters to write on my Wednesday trip to Starbucks.  I was worried I wouldn't get any this week.

So, I get back from my walk.  I got here and did my workouts.  I ate lunch and then got a few things done. I had plans to go to a friend's house for the evening.  I ended up staying longer than planned!  I came home and started a load of clothes.  I took a bath, got out and washed dishes.  Now I'm just waiting for my clothes to dry so I can put those away.


Sunday is not a day of rest!

Not for me anyway!  I got in a great walk.  It was sunny and warm out there today.  Very nice for walking.  I came home and did three workouts.  I ate lunch, and did the last one.  I then decided that the grass was dry enough to mow.  I got the front lawn and part of the back done.  I only have one more part left. I'll do it later this week.  During all this, I also worked on washing and drying my bed linen.  I have those all done and  back on the bed!  I'm over 24,000 steps already today.  ^_^  That help make up for Friday when I didn't get my usual steps in.

Now, I don't know what to do!  I could go and finish the back lawn.  That would make the day complete and I wouldn't have to worry about it again for a while.  Hmm.... that is an idea.  I might just go do that.  I also might just veg out in front of the TV and watch Hulu. :p

UPDATE! I went out to start to mow the rest of the lawn.  I pulled the cord on the mower and it came off in my hand. ~_~; I was not amused.  I have had a lot of mower issues over the years, but this is one that has never happened!  I put the mower away and got out the weed eater.  Of course my power cords aren't very long, so I was only able to get part of the yard done that I wanted to do.  I would have done a little more, but it started to rain. Did I mention the weed eater is electric?  Did I also mention that there are a few places in the cords that need repair?  Yeah, I totally touched one and got a shock.  I am glad that happened though because it started raining not long after that.  I don't even want to think about it hitting a wet patch while I was holding it. YIKES!  

So, the lawn isn't completely done, but it's a little more done.  Also, as I was finishing up and the rain started, some debris flew up and hit me in  the eye. :(  I kept blinking and trying to get it to water.  By the time I got the weed eater and cord put away and came in and checked, it was at the corner of my eye so I was able to get it out.  What a day! :p

Saturday's stuff

I got in my regular walk today.  It was actually sunny today!  The first day in ages.  I was glad to see it.  I stopped by the post office.  I had a piece of mail. It was a card from a pen pal.  I came home, did my workouts, and then ate lunch.  

I did a few things around the house and then went to a friend's house for dinner.  I stayed awhile and now I'm home.  I'm probably going to take a bath and crash.  It's been a long day and it's not even 10 yet!

Another Friday failure!

I actually did start my walk today.  Unfortunately I only got in 2 miles.  My friend called and I ended up going with them to Gretna to get ice cream.  I didn't get any, so I didn't do too badly!  I just never got my walk finished. Oh well, I've told myself that it doesn't hurt to miss walks every now and then.  Plus, I tried to eat a little less today than usual to make up for the calories I would haveburned on the walk.

I did my Blogilates workouts. It is rest day so they were stretches.  I love stretch day. It always feels good to get all stretched out.  I still can't do a split, but I'll continue to work on it.  I might get out my #journeytosplits printout and try again in June.  I have always wanted to be able to do a split!

Now I am going to balance my checkbook.  I'm one of those weirdos that actually think that is fun!  I'll do that and then relax a bit before bed.  It's been cooler at night and it's good sleeping weather.  I love to have a cool room and a bed with a ton of blankets on it.  It makes a comfy nest!

Is it time for bed yet?

I got in a good walk today.  Unfortunately, it was a bit rainy!  I didn't think it would rain, but it did.  It wasn't too bad though.  I only had to use my umbrella for a portion of my walk.  I stopped by the post office, but I didn't have any letters.  I got home and did my workouts, ate lunch, and then ran an errand.  I finally got the clothes I washed yesterday dried!  I forgot about them last night just as I thought I would.  It wouldn't have taken so long to dry them, but I forgot I had several large towels in there.  Oops!

I got them dried and put away this afternoon.  I had planned to stay in after that, but I had to carry something to my friend's house.  I meant to drop it off and come back home. That didn't happen.  I ended up coming home and taking a bath and washing my hair.  I then realized that there was a new episode of Adventure Time!!!!!! I watched that and went, OMG WTF BBQ!!!! lol  Seriously.  The show is getting more though provoking every episode.  Kid's show my ass!

Long day!

I got in my walk today.  I didn't have any letters today.  I had to go pick up a couple of things at the dollar store on my way home.  Unfortunately, that took a LOT longer than  it should have.  First of all, the 'lady' in front of me had  a bunch of crap and I had two items.  She waited until the girl was finished ringing her up to dig for money.  The transaction took over 5 minutes.  THEN, I think, she is done, I can get rung up now.  WRONG.  Her receipt didn't print.  She '"Wasn't going to walk out of here with $16 worth of stuff and no receipt!"  She "Knew they could reprint one!  She worked a j0b like this!!!!"  The girl said, "No, we can't reprint a receipt.  "Get the manager!"  So, for FIFTEEN minutes she argued with the manager and the cashier while they tried to convince her that it wasn't going to work.  They even called someone else and got the same answer.  

Another cashier finally came on duty and I was moved to the other register.  I waited over 20 minutes to get checked out because of some stupid receipt!  The stupid woman was still there when I left.  I was about to cut a bitch!  I finally left.  I am wondering if she is still there.  I mean, I am very anal about getting receipts.  I keep my receipts, too.  If there was someone behind me WAITING and I couldn't get a receipt, I would just jot down my total and leave. This crazy bitch had everyone trying to do something that they couldn't do.  I wanted to smack the stupid out of her!

So, that put me WAY behind.  I got home and would have been able to do all my workouts before dinner.  Since she took so long, I only had time to do four.  I did those, ate, and got ready for my Starbucks trip.  I headed out and got there. I had to wait a little bit for my comfy chair, but I eventually got it.  I wrote four pen pals letters.  Then, I wrote to a potential new pal.  I also wrote my friend that I write quite often.  My poor hand was tired after all that!  I stayed a bit longer just relaxing and headed home.

I got here and ate dinner and then I did that last workout.  I have a load of clothes in the washer that I meant to get in earlier.  Oops.  Actually, I should go check to see if they are ready for the dryer!
