Good morning folks!
Check this out:Yeah. I know. Eggs and cottage cheese for breakfast. Blew your mind, didn’t I? First time in a while that I haven’t made oatmeal for breakfast. Do you always mix up breakfast, or is there a routine you stick with? I’m trying new things this week. Just for kicks…
And I just really wanted to break into the avocado… before it went bad. Where’s the avocado you ask? As the eggs were already cooking, I discovered I let the avocado get a little too ripe. I’m pretty sure it was starting to rot. Ugh. Oops. So my grand idea for a southwestern scramble with black beans, avocado, and salsa became incomplete. I threw in some cheese on top of the eggs and black beans in attempts to make up for the loss.
“In attempts”. It was good, just not what I had envisioned. But I did also include coffee in today’s lineup. It’s the Tim Horton’s that Leah sent me- and it’s so yum. Just sayin’.
Another thing I didn’t envision? And why I chose coffee over tea? Waking up a sticky mess at 3:00 this morning. When did I adjust the AC temp? It’s hot! What time is it? Why can’t I see the clock?
My power went out last night. Not sure when. But I assume it had been a while because my apartment was well on it’s way to becoming a steam room. Crap.
What the hell?
My fire alarm battery must be low? And here’s how knowledgeable I am about such things- I always thought it was just battery-operated? Apparently mine is also hooked up to the electricity as well? Then I also started hearing one or two other fire alarms beeping in other apartments in my building. Great…
Imagine me completely disoriented, on my phone with the electric company, and standing on a chair trying to disable the fire alarm so I don’t go completely insane at 3:00 this morning all at once. Funny, right? Not at the time. The electric company estimated a four-hour delay in getting it turned on. What? I texted my friend Mon who was randomly awake (or at least swore she was and said I didn’t wake her up) to see if I could shower and get ready at her place if necessary. I started freaking out about what to do with all my food if it stayed off much longer. How late for work will this make me? What if it doesn’t go on at all? I had worked myself up into such a tizzy I even considered getting up at 4:30 and getting my 4.5-mile run in since I wasn’t sleeping anyways.
It kicked back on maybe a half hour later after I had gone back to bed. I laughed about it this morning. After the fact. I woke up not really sure if it had happened until I saw the fire alarm sitting on the coffee table- the battery on the floor.
The only casualty of the night was my sleep intake. Whatev. I’ve dealt with that before.
I still mixed it up this morning by doing The Shred (Level 2) in the AM versus the PM. It’s my later shift of work for the week, so to have a little more spare time in the evening, I’m hopefully going to start doing part of my workouts in the morning… see if it kickstarts my day.
Yesterday started stormy and rainy. So I ran to the mall for some errands and also picked up my bridesmaid dress. Then as I left the mall, I noticed the sun shining. What? It was supposed to rain all day. That’s why I went to the mall in the first place. And how much sun have I missed??? Has anyone else had the issue that the forecast has been wrong 6 out of days in the past few weeks?
It’s making planning a real issue.
I went home and ate my fantastic leftovers from my Friday night date with Annie.Still as good as that night.
I also felt the need to get out and enjoy the surprise nice weather. So I did some trail walking. And saw an alarming number of those shape-up shoes. Does anyone else see them everywhere? And do you think they work? My mom has a pair, but hasn’t reported her thoughts on them. Just a random question because I’m quite curious.
Well enjoy your day. I’m off to a somewhat “normal” week of work- which will be a nice change of pace in comparison to last week’s craziness. See ya later!
