Today is a Do All The Things day. I’ve got a behemouth case of spring cleaning fever today. Got a huge box of stuff ready to go to Goodwill, moved a bunch of other random crap to the vacated tubs under the bed, tossed a bunch of ancient shoes I forgot I even owned that should’ve gone the way of the dodo ages ago, and got the second load of laundry going. In a little bit I’ll be starting on some gluten free English muffins for hubs, writing up a guest post, writing a LOOOOOONG overdue thank you note, finishing 2 more loads of laundry, changing the sheets, finishing the dishes, and getting the house clean for the company that’s coming for dinner.
I woke up hella early. No idea why. But 7:20, I was awake. So I went on and did my run. It was 22 degrees outside and still, by halfway through, I was down to my t-shirt. Did I mention I really hate being hot? I tried out my new running shoes–a pair of Asics Nimbus 12s. I hit up the local sporting goods store and did a bunch of trying on earlier in the week and discovered the difference between the sale running shoes for $40 and the $120 ones. It’s called CUSHION and SUPPORT. With that in mind, I came home to find the same model for a bit cheaper (and actually in my size WIDE, which no one carries locally). It’s not the same model exactly, but uses the same gel technology and are way more comfortable than the walking shoes I’ve been using (which are themselves comfortable for their intended purpose of walking). Yesterday I returned the Avias I’d ordered from JC Penney and was surprised to find that they even refunded my shipping! Kudos to them!
The writing has been going well, despite some interruptions. Wednesday: 713. Thursday nothing because I put together my new exercise bike. Friday nothing because it was total lunacy all day at work and I just couldn’t focus in the evening. But Saturday: 1652 and this morning a solid 954, so I’ve made up for the two days I missed and am pleased. I’m coming up hard on the FPP and really feel like I’m hitting a groove with this book. It’s always nice to get to that point.
It’s going to be another crazy week at work, so keeping my head in the story may be a challenge. I only have limited brainpower, you know? But we do what we can and that’s that. Off to check the dryer.
