This is my week in a nutshell. Hence the title.
I took my first ride ever on the L on Sunday. It was a whole two stops. It wasn’t so bad. But I learned I should carry more exact change (as if the tollways didn’t already teach me that). Now I have a CTA card with $8 on it. I wonder how long that’s going to sit in my wallet untouched?
I was out on my balcony last night and one of the units across from me had their blinds open. There was a large dog that humped the couch for pretty much the entire time that I was out there. Not that I was purposely looking, but a large gyrating figure in my direct line of view catches my attention pretty easily. Don’t judge.
Two of my guy friends are coming up this weekend for the Cards/Cubs series. At first, I was just “normal excited” for this weekend. Now, I am SUPER excited for this weekend. I love it when Adam comes up because he gets everyone he knows to come out, no matter how much he has to talk, and is pretty good about making sure that every single person is having the same exact amount of fun he is. And I haven’t seen Cisco in almost a year since he went off on his little Argentina excursion. Hooray!
In an attempt to be less wasteful, I have eaten oatmeal for dinner or breakfast or both for the last four days. I needed milk at the grocery store and they happened to have a sale on the gallon size. Now, I’m not a big milk person (I eat my cereal without, believe it or not), but it didn’t make sense for me to buy the smaller size when it would actually cost more than the gallon. But now I’ve got this stupid gallon of milk that just won’t end. The “sell by” date has come and gone, so I smell the damn stuff everyday. I think I’ve started getting disappointed that it hasn’t gone bad yet because I think to myself, “Really? Oatmeal again?”. But I’m trying to be more economical and I can’t get myself to let it sit there and go bad because I just didn’t feel like using it. It’s a freaking recession, people! Blah. I haven’t really had the time to make anything else that would require it. I don’t like milk on my cereal. I like oatmeal. So it makes sense. And I add other stuff to it to make it a little less boring. But this is getting out of control.
I do not have an opinion about the Obama family’s new dog. None whatsoever.
I still have not seen “I Love You, Man”. I do have an opinion about this- and it bugs me.
Apparently I need more sleep. I skipped the gym this morning and slept an extra hour. At work, the comment was made that I look well-rested and perkier than normal. I don’t really feel any different- just carrying a little guilt for not going to the gym. I don’t think I look any different. Do I normally look exhausted? I’m concerned…
My cousin and I have decided on the next 5k that we are going to do. Niki found another good one and it’s called “Run for the Zoo”. I believe a theme is surfacing- we like to run for the benefit of animals. The location is in Lincoln Park again, but this time we get to run through parts of the zoo. It’s not until June 7th- which is fine because I have plenty of time to recover from the whole wisdom teeth thing and be lazy for awhile. I know, I’m treating it as a much bigger deal than it is… Anyways, it starts at 8:00 on a Sunday morning. I am positive that during that run I will be reminding her that this was her idea and not mine. She picked it.
