Good Evening friends!
How was your Tuesday start to the week?? It’s always nice when you have a one day advantage on the weekend, but it always makes for a crazier first day back. I am off the next two days before I start my internship (ahhh!!!) this Thursday. This morning I woke up, a bit too early with a plan…
6:30 a.m. Alarm goes off… I sit and wonder why, oh why, I should be up this early on my day off.
6:40 a.m. remember that why I set my alarm was so that I could do a test-drive to my internship site during rush-hour traffic to see how long it takes.
6:42 a.m. shower and attempt to wake myself up. Proceed to get myself ready, also throw in a load of laundry.
7:15 a.m. opt to make breakfast, despite being knowing it will force me to leave a little late than planned. But really, how can you turn down a bowl of banana oatmeal with almond butter??
7:49 a.m. Hit the road, 19 minutes later than planned, but a full belly and a to-go mug of tea happier.
8:44 a.m. Arrive at my internship site, success! Will probably leave the 19 minutes earlier still on Thursday **just in case**
9:08 a.m. make it back home, head straight for the library for my next, to-do:
9:48 a.m. Returned home, realize just how tired I am. Put sheets in the dryer. Fold and put away laundry from a few days ago (yes, this is one of my bad habits for sure). Read blogs for a while.
10:47 a.m. leave for 11 a.m. appointment.
12:00 p.m. head home from appointment, notice that the rain is holding off for a bit and decide to take my run outdoors.
12:35 p.m. Leave for “40-50 minute easy run.”
1:24 p.m. Return home, 4.95 miles and 49:09 minutes later…SO EXCITED!!! 9:55 average miles on an “easy” day, not too shabby!
2:00 p.m. Decide that I need to go to the shoe store to see about investing in a new pair of Aisics. I have been experiencing some pain on the soles of my feet while running lately, making things a bit unpleasant.
2:30 p.m. Go to the Hallmark store to look at a potential Vera Bradley bag for internship. Realize that having just purchased $99.99 sneakers, this next purchase will require a trip to the bank!
2:45 p.m. Bank, anxiety over dwindling account and decreased working hours ensues.
3:15 p.m. Home, need a break from spending money for a bit, shower and wait for my mom to get home.
4:08 p.m. Mom arrives at the house, we venture off to our next shopping location, T.J. Maxx
4:55 p.m. Defeated at T.J. Maxx, head over to Trader Joe’s for Brown Rice Penne and Puffins 🙂
5:18 p.m. Arrive home and start the dinner-making-marathon with my mom; we are both yawning and a little bit “hangry.”
6:12 p.m. Sit down to eat this dinner:
7:47 p.m. Feet up, on the couch, drinking peppermint tea, blogging 🙂
Tell me, what did you do on your Tuesday-after-the-long-weekend??? Do you ever have “days off” that are busier than work days?
Have a great night everyone, Go Sox!
lots of love,
