Fear not, I am not going to regale you with a story of passionate romance taken to its climax. This is me about whom we’re talking; I doubt that I will every be that fortunate again.
No, yesterday I left work “early” and drove up to LA Fitness in Atlantic Station. I spent thirty minutes on the elliptical an then the same amount of time on a stationary bike. All the while I was getting ready to exercise I felt as if I was missing something. It wasn’t until I was already on the elliptical and starting my workout that I realized that my heart rate monitor was back in the locker room.
The workout was as tough as I expected it would be given that it has been eight weeks since I’d done one.
It Was Much Easier When I Wasn’t Working
After my workout I stopped into Target, very briefly. While entering Target a little before 6:00pm (how was it almost 6:00pm when I left the office at 3:30pm?!?!) I discovered that Warby Parker is only open until 7:00pm. I made a quick 180° turn and headed out of the store. I fought traffic from Atlantic Station to Howell Mill, getting to Warby Parker with plenty of time to spare.
My trip to Warby Parker convinced me that I didn’t want new eyeglasses as nothing looked good on my face. The trip was not a total loss however as the friendly young lady who greeted me upon entry actually remembered me from my previous visits.
I was really hungry leaving Warby Parker so instead of going directly to IKEA I stopped into Baby Tommy’s Pizza for two large slices. Unfortunately I was once again disappointed at the state of the restaurant, so that may have been my last visit there.
After stuffing my face I went to IKEA where I walked the mile winding route, picking up a few small items for the ITP Estate or in the case of the two chocolate bars, me.
I returned to the Atlantic Station Target after IKEA. I probably should have gone to the Edgewood Retail District Target, because had I done so I would have completed my errand checklist by stopping into Lowe’s as well.
By the time I got home and hung up my workout clothes it was 9:00pm. Yikes!
I spent the rest of my waking time doing some preparation for today.
Yardwork and Cleaning, Oh My
I was hoping to put some things on the curb this morning, but by the time I got home last night I had no energy to do so. Tonight I will be clearing out a bunch of things that are no longer of use to me, putting them on the curb for anyone to claim. Must. Keep. Making. Progress.
Tomorrow I will be clearing out some of the debris in my back yard. When I am tired of doing yard work I will return to cleaning and clearing house. I think that I will treat myself to dinner out somewhere.
On Sunday I may hash, though it’s highly unlikely given the fact that I am still fighting off poison ivy acquired on the last Black Sheep Hash.
Along with all of this I need to do some coding, as well as some studying and planning for my trip in three weeks.
Happy Weekend Everyone!
