Well, more people in the blog world seemed to be working than people in Dc. They had the metro running on a construction schedule aka it was slow as butt. Hello… there are people who actually have to work today! Let’s move on before I show my Mass-hole ways.
I would trade… these freakishly dark morning for daylight savings time to come sooner. I seriously can’t wait to not only gain an hour of sleep but have the morning be *gasp* light when I run. I seriously am running in pure darkness for a good 30 minutes and then the rest of my run is as the sun is rising. Kind of sick of it. I like my sun people.
I would trade… sporadic reading schedule for a bigger commitment to reading. I did a very rare thing for me and got an actual book to read. I can’t remember the last time I have read for pleasure just because I have always had such a busy schedule. I got “Thirteen Reasons Why” and have been reading it on my metro rides. It is a tad difficult because I do switch trains. I know I could read at night but for some reason when I am in my apartment at night the last thing I want to do is read, strange but true. I am either a. on my computer, b. watching tv or c. in bed. All of which if I pick up a book end in me falling asleep. Granny status all the way. If anything, I am hoping reading on the metro will help with my terrible anxiety on the commute home. Who knows why but I get super anxious travelling back from work.
I would trade… this root canal on Friday for anything else. I have to go for it at 10 am and then head right to work and work late to make up the time. I am out of sick days thanks to the first root canal and the colonoscopy. Great… I am trying to forget about the pain it was to eat and worse the way my stomach reacted to the meds I have to take. Just when I thought things were getting normal. Can’t win over here.
I would trade… another kitchen fail for some chef skills. I mean really people I need to master something! I attempted to cook some cabbage (you know because I now have a cabbage the size of a cat) in my crock pot. Well, it cooked but just tasted flavorless despite all the seasonings, despite the broth, despite adding other vegetables to it. Barely edible to say the least. I can’t wait till I can share a baking success.
I would trade… the metro ride on Monday for a more predictable schedule. The metro decided because everyone had work off, why not do construction? Oh hell no. The platforms were packed, the trains were sporadic and worst of all – people were angry. That all combined made my travel home from work an hour and a half, a trip that takes normally 25 minutes. I got home and had the mixed emotion of wanting to punch someone and wanting to climb out of skin. Not helping my metro anxiety at all.
I would trade… my addiction for train wreck tv for less embarrassing choices. I may or may not have caught up on Jersey Shore and the Real Housewives of Miami on Sunday. I just can’t tear my eyes away, it is like watching a world of stupidity unfold before my eyes. I blush for them. But oh so good. I can’t say I have watched any quality tv lately, I barely even watch tv unless it is through Hulu on a Saturday or Friday night. I just totally gave away my rocking social life. I did watch the SNL skit of the news covering the debate when they interviewed big bird. Hilarious, get your hands on that one.
I would trade… the waiting process for a quick answer. So today I finally applied to Potomac Running Store that is only about a 10 minute walk from me. I would LOVE to be able to work there to not only make some money but hopefully meet people that heck, have drank the running kool aid. Crossing my fingers on this one!
I would trade… this freaking cold weather for my heat back! I really hate the cold, you will probably hear me complain a lot about the cold. For some reason, DC is experiencing this jacket and boots weather. I am not a fan, I wore gloves to run this morning… WHAT! My biggest fear is that this is showing what winter has in store for us. Woof. I hate the treadmill and will run in any weather but if we get some crazy storms I will have to make peace with that dreadmill. Not looking forward to that.
I would trade… the comparisons that are made for people to listen to their body. I got a lot of responses on my rest days about people saying that they felt the need to move or do something. Why do we determine our worth by movement? Why can’t we just be? That is something I ask myself every time I have those thoughts. Heck, those thoughts usually mean I NEED to take a break. Try it people, your body will thank you.
And because my mom put me in a good mood this weekend… I wouldn’t trade…
- this past weekend and getting the email from mom saying she had a blast!
- the new blogs and readers I continually find
- a race fever in me that is not going away
- a chat with my friend from home on Sunday that put an instant smile on my face
For some reason I have this urge to embark on a blog project, not sure what yet but I keep scheming. Anyone in that same mind frame that may want to partner up? email@example.com
Questions: What would you trade this Tuesday? What wouldn’t you trade?
