Ok. Who booked this flight?!?! It surely wasn’t me. Mom…. I know it was you…
Yes, it’s 4:15. AM. Yes, it’s vacation and I’m up way earlier than I would have been if I had been working today. I guess that’s just how it goes.
A nap will be necessary.
But I digress…
Last night was packed. (Get it?? One of the things I had to do was pack… no? I’m going to pretend it’s just too early for you yet, because that’s funny!) Anyways, I raced home and headed straight to my apartment’s workout room. I didn’t know how long I was going to have the desire to workout, giving the tiny bit of lingering soreness, but wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to go as long as I please. I ended up just sticking to 25 minutes on the elliptical followed by some free weights and abs. It felt pretty good- so I’ll be back into full swing again soon!
Dinner was an egg and spinach scramble.Loaded with spinach. Because my timing really sucked with grocery shopping last weekend and I didn’t want to the spinach to go to waste while I am gone. Popeye would have been proud. There was a ton of it. Of course I had to have toast. And maaaay have put almond butter on half for dessert.
Packing is always a chore. I’m awful at it because I’m the world’s worst overpacker. The idea of only taking a carry-on for three days worth of stuff makes me want to hyperventilate. A girl needs her shoes! And I have this awful habit of overpacking stuff like underwear. Seriously… what is that about? Have I ever needed 3 or 4 pair for each night I’m staying somewhere? No. But I’ll pack it anyways. Every time. guaranteed. How about you? What do you always overpack?
- I am one of over 30 cousins. On one side of my family. I really can’t give you the exact number without sitting and thinking about it because inevitably I’ll accidently skip someone. My mom comes from a HUGE family of 13. So I guess that many cousins is close to an appropriate average? I’m somewhere in the upper middle of the group. Family gatherings are full-blown ordeals. And can be overwhelming if you’re unprepared.
- Of all the places I haven’t been and want to visit, I think I’d choose New York City. The city fascinates me (as did Chicago before I visited it). And if the exciting hustle and bustle isn’t enough to entice me, I want to see and experience the culture, history and landmarks, restaurants, bars, shopping… the list goes on. Oh New York… one day!
- I enjoy romantic dinners and long walks on the beach…. oh wait… just kidding. When it comes to dating, I’m not huge in the romance. My ideal date would allow me to wear jeans, laugh over drinks and a casual dinner, and do something random (think bowling, sight seeing, hiking). One time, a guy I dated insisted (after I protested) on a candle lit dinner and a carriage ride. One time, I broke it off with a guy after the second date. Shoulda listened.
So that’s all I have for now. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
