Good Grief!

Yes, it's been over a month since I last posted.  I totally didn't mean for that to happen.  I am over my sickness, but I still can't seem to get the energy to do anything.  I'm behind on my letters and everything!  I really need to catch up on life.  I haven't walked since August.  I keep meaning to get back on track and it just doesn't seem to happen.

I have some personal issues that I can't go into right now, and that has been weighing on my mind, too.  The only thing I have been actively doing is keeping up my Bullet Journal!  I use my bujo everyday.  It makes me look like I'm doing something. :)  I promise to try to get on here and post more.  I wanted to do a daily post when I started the blog.  

If you look to the menu at the right, you'll notice something new.  I've decided to try Nanowrimo this year.  I signed up in the past and didn't complete it. I'm starting fresh.  New account at Nanowrimo.  I hope to get my novel written this time. I already have an idea of one that I've been mulling over for some time now.  I just need to sit down and get it on paper.  I figured why no join Nanowrimo to get myself inspired!

Wednesday post time!

I got in my walk today and it was a little bit cooler.  Not much, but enough to help.  I actually slept until my silent alarm on my Fitbit went off.  I went on my walk about an hour earlier than my usual time.  I came home and took my time doing my workouts.  I was able to take a few minutes between them.  That was nice.  I like having the time to relax a bit and not be in a rush.  Sometimes the internet is spotty and the videos don't want to load.  I did that a few times today, but I had the extra time, so I didn't mind.

I got those done. It was core and cardio day. OUCH!  I ate lunch and then got my things together for Starbucks.  I relaxed a little while and then headed over there.  I was able to get my favorite chair immediately.  I had six letters to write and I got them all done.  I was looking forward to playing Pokemon Go while there too, but the servers were down for most of my visit.  They didn't come up until near the end.  I ended up staying a bit longer than I planned.  I almost forgot that I needed to go pick up my prescription at Kmart.  I would have walked there on one of my walks, but they are doing road construction in front of it and it's a mess.  I didn't want to get run over!

I got my prescription and headed home.  I posted to Letters and Lattes and then came here to post.  Now, I'm going to relax for a while before getting in bed and relaxing for the night.  I am hoping to get some reading done tonight. 

It's Thursday, right?

Yeah, my week has been all messed up because of the 4th being on Monday.  I was like having two Sundays! :P  So, yes, it's Thursday.  I got in my walk.  It was hot, and even though it was the same temperature when I walked on Tuesday, it didn't feel as hot.  I am very glad of that!  That heat is horrible!

I came home and did four of my workouts.  I ate lunch and did one more.  I had a friend ask last night if I'd drive him to pick up his car.  I did that and then went to the grocery store and got a few things.  Hopefully I'm set for the month on food.  I'm broke, so I'll have to be!  I came home and relaxed for a while.  The reason my friend needed to pick up his car?  He bought a motorcycle!  He drove it home from where he bought it and then I drove him to pick up his vehicle.  He asked if I'd like to ride on it later.  I agreed.  I have only been on a motorcycle about three times in my entire life.  It's just not for me.  I kept feeling like I was either going to fall off the side, or side into my friend. lol  It was interesting, to say the least!

I came back here and had a late dinner.  I decided to post here before I crash on my bed.  I finished The Drawing of Three last night and started briefly on The Wastelands.  It only gets better and better from here! I love The Dark Tower.  Plus, we meet Oy in this one. :D  I love Oy.

Goodbye June!

It's hard to believe that it's the end of June already!  That means tomorrow is a whole new month.  I got in a good walk today, but I was so hot when I got home I felt like dying.  Today was cardio day on the calendar. YIKES! lol So, I get home and only relax for a few before getting into my workouts.  Did I mention the #100burpeeburnout was on today's calendar? Yeah, I made it through!

So I got my workouts done, ate lunch, and then went out with the weed eater.  My friend got to come and get most of the front lawn done. Yay!  I only had the parts where it's unsafe / impossible to use the riding mower.  I got those done after what seemed like forever.  My weed eater was being bitchy!  I finally got that done and came in to cool off for a little bit.

I went up to my friend's house to pick up a dog crate. I'm dog sitting their pups tomorrow.  I spend a little time up there since they'll be gone all weekend.  I came home, ate dinner, and then just did a little straightening up.  I am now relaxing a bit.  I realized I hadn't posted to either of my blogs today, so I'm doing that now.  I need to post to Letters and Lattes and then I'm going to read.  I started The Drawing of Three last night.  I was up way past my bedtime, too! Oops!

Pink on Wednesday? Of course!

Yes, I wear pink on Wednesdays! :p  I got in my walk today and it was hot.  It wasn't as bad as it was yesterday though, so that was nice.  I didn't get any mail, though.  That sucked!  I got my walk done on time, too!  I came home and did four workouts.  I ate and did one last one.  I got my things together and went to Starbucks for my weekly thing.

I was able to get my favorite chair immediately! YAY!  There was an older gentleman in the other comfy chair.  I asked if he minded if I took the other and he said not at all. ^_^  I wrote all my letters and then relaxed for the rest of the time.  I only had five pen pal letters and one letter to my friend that I write often.  After that, my hand was cramped!  I caught up on my Insta feed on my phone.  I follow so many people, if I don't check it at least once a day it takes forever to get caught up!

I retired my Ryka shoes after today's walk.  The lining on the inside back has worn off and the plastic underneath was rubbing my foot.  I put a tissue in my sock to cushion it so I wouldn't get a blister.  The bottoms are still in great shape.  They really held up well.  Six months and almost two weeks.  Not bad at all!  I have a pair of New Balance that I got at the beach that I will wear tomorrow.  They are so pretty!  Light blue.  I'll be posting a picture to my Insta after this if you want to see them.

I finished The Gunslinger last night. I didn't immediately start The Drawing of Three although I wanted to.  I felt sleep would be a good idea! :p  I will probably start on it tonight.  I 

Good grief!

So, I had to stop at four places on today's walk.  The first took 1 second.  The second place, I went in and no one was at the desk.  I waited and waited and finally someone came and took the things I needed to drop off.  I went on my way and hoped that I could make up the lost time.  I get to the bank and there is one person ahead of me.  He is already being waiting on as I get there.  Over 20 minutes later, I finally got to get waited on. ~_~; I was not amused.  I don't know what the hell he was doing, but it took forever.  While I was in there, another man came in.  He walked around to be closer to the teller.  I gave him a look!  When the guy that was there when I got there finally moved, this new guy acted like he was going ahead of me.  OH HELL NO!  I just gave him another look and said, "I've been waiting quite awhile."  I got done there and I had to stop by the post office to pick up the letter that I didn't get to pick up yesterday.  I had gotten a small rebate check, thus the trip to the bank.

Luckily, that only took a minute.  I checked my box, no mail, and headed out.  Of course by this time, I was REALLY behind on time.  I was not amused.  I walked faster than I normally do and it wasn't easy as it was quite humid out there.  Luckily it was overcast so that made it a little better.

I got home and did four of my workouts, I ate lunch and did one more.  I did a few other things that needed doing and then ran out for some errands.  I went to Dollar Tree and got a few things and headed home.  I am now typing this up so that I can get off the computer for the night.  I started on The Gunslinger last night and I'm already half way done. ^^;  A friend of mine has been promising to read the Dark Tower series and he finally started.  I hope he loves it as much as I do!

Tomorrow is Starbucks Wednesday.  I should stay home and weed eat the front yard, but I still hold out hope my friend will come and do it. If not, I'll do it on Thursday.  If they don't get here before Friday, it will be too late.  They are leaving for vacation for the weekend.  I really don't want to have to go out and do it with the weed eater as it takes a very long time and it kills my back. :(

Okay, enough complaining!  I'll be back tomorrow.

Is it Fall yet?

It was another hot walk today.  I wish I had more places to fill up my water bottle.  I think that would make my walk a whole lot easier.  When I was able to walk on the trail, there were three different water fountains that I passed.  I could fill up more than once and that was nice!  It's just so hot out there!

I stopped by the post office but I only had a 'postage due' card in there for a letter. I didn't have any money with me, so that will have to wait until I do! I just hope they won't send it back before I can get it.  I came home and did all but one of my workouts.  I ate lunch and did one more.  I was going to get the weed eater out and get the front lawn done, but it rained for just a little bit.  I used that as my excuse to not do it!  I keep hoping my friend will actually come and help me out like they said!  It's a pain for me with the weed eater.  They have a riding lawn mower. ~_~;

I hope to get off this computer right after this and relax with my current read.  I want to finish it so that I can carry it back to the library. I am thinking of re-reading The Dark Tower again soon.

Starbucks on Wednesday FTW!

It was extremely hot on my walk today. My clothes were literally dripping when I came home.  BLEH!  I cooled off and did my workouts.  I ate lunch and then a storm came up!  Luckily it only lasted a little bit.  It also washed off my car so I didn't have to before I left for Starbucks. :p

I got over there a bit before 5.  I didn't get any new letters today, so I only had the two to write.  I wrote a friend a letter while there and then just relaxed and played with my phone.  It was a bit busier in there than usual!  I stayed longer than usual and then headed out.  I had a huge stack of library books I needed to take by the book drop.  I did that and headed home.

I fixed myself a Smart Ones frozen dinner.  It was pretty decent, but it didn't have enough chicken in it!  It was a Teriyaki chicken dish with brown rice, carrots, and other veggies.  It had about 2394038942034 carrots, and about 1 and 1/2 piece of chicken. LOL!  Seriously.  It was only 250 calories, so I know I'll be hungry again soon.  Actually, I already am!  It wasn't a bad meal, but it just wasn't enough food.

I got all the letters I wrote ready for mailing tomorrow on my walk.  I just need to put them in my backpack.  I have one more book from the library that I need to finish reading.  I can take it on a walk and drop it in the box.  One won't be that bad to tote.  I took  back about 10 books, maybe 12?  Yeah, not lugging those on my walk!  Now I just need to finish that last one so it can get back before the due date.  I start on it every night and read a bit, but I get so tired, I have to go to bed. I just checked and it doesn't have to be back until the 3oth.  I should be finished with it by then!


Regular Wednesday!

I got in a good, but very HOT walk today.  It said it was in the upper 80's but it felt like 112!  Sheesh.  I came home from my walk and did my workouts.  It was arm day.  My arms are tired! :P  I went out and washed off my car and got my bag ready for Starbucks!

I got there a bit earlier than I usually do.  I didn't get my favorite chair at first, but it cleared up pretty fast.  I moved to it and stayed there until I left.  I got all five letters written. I have them all ready to mail out tomorrow.  I left a few minutes earlier than I usually do because it looked like we were going to get a storm.  I got home before it hit.  There was thunder, lightning, and a LOT of heavy rain.  I'm glad I got home before all that hit!

Now I just need to wash my hair and relax a bit before bed.  I'm at at 75% on being done with End of Watch. It's SO good!  It just gets better and better as I go along. I am anxious to see how it all comes out!  

Ouch and oops!

It was a lot hotter today than yesterday and I forgot to put on sunscreen.  I also wore a top that has shorter sleeves than my usual tops and it had a v-neck.  I got burnt on my chest, neck, and upper arms. :(  I need to put my sunscreen where I can't miss it so I don't forget to put it on.  I just put some after sun lotion on and that felt so nice.  I hope it isn't as hot tomorrow!  That would not be good. I'm not a fan of overly hot days!

Last Wednesday, when I was about to go to Starbucks, I checked my antifreeze.  It was low so I went to fill it.  The radiator cap fell down in the engine somewhere and I couldn't find it.  I looked several more times and several more days for it.  My friend got me a replacement.  Today I needed to run an errand to pick up a few essentials. My car made a horrible noise as I was driving it out the driveway.  I heard a rattle and a clunk.  I stopped and went and looked.  My radiator cap was on the ground!  It finally shifted loose of wherever it was under my engine.  I picked it up and put it in a ziploc bag in case I need it sometime in the future as it was pretty new itself.

I got my errands done and came home and re-started the dryer.  I don't like to run it when I'm not here.  I went to check on it and the clothes are far from dry and it's making a noise.  I had to find places all over to hang clothes.  I would have gone to the laundry and dried them, but it was late and it closes pretty early.  I hope it's an easy fix.  That is all I need!  Something else broken.  PHOOEY!

I got my workouts done when I got home from my walk.  I also washed dishes.  I need to mow the lawn, but my friend hasn't brought the new cord for my mower yet.  I can't start it without one!  I should go ahead and get out there with the weed eater, but I don't want to!  It's so hard to do it that way, and it takes forever.

I think I'm going to relax for the rest of the evening and try to forget my worries.  I am a bit over halfway done with End of Watch now.  It's so good!
