*sigh* I’m EXHAUSTED and it’s only Monday. That’s never a good sign. I was planning on posting yesterday about my Sensational Sunday but after I wrote about making my first crazy meal in the new kitchen I totally ran out of steam.
So let me recap…
Sunday started with a 9 mile training run. I needed it. I have totally lost my running groove with this move and new job but I have committed to my weekend long runs. Those are non-negatiable. Especially if I’m going to be ready for the marathon in October. This one was surprising easy. "Easy" as in I wanted to do. I looked forward to it and I enjoyed taking that time for myself.
After the run, the boy and I walked to a new grocery store and stocked up for the week. Well that’s an overstatement. I can’t really "stock up" as I have NO room so we just bought what we needed for the week. Boy how I miss my pantry, my island, counter space and my gas stove! I know, I know, I’m totally kitchen spoiled!
Anyway, once we were done and the groceries were away it was off to the movies. The husband had some work to do so it was just the two of us watching Ice Age III. It had Dinosaurs in so all were smitten. :)
The rest of the evening was a blur as I made dinner, cleaned up, packed lunches and got prepared for the week. Pretty much the same thing I did tonight. That’s where the "trying" comes in.
I’ve been feeling a bit out of my element in this tiny apartment with most of my stuff boxed or in piles. I can never find anything when I need it. The house never looks clean. I don’t even have a place to unwind.
But I’m trying. The way I figure it, the only way to stay sane is to be as prepared as possible. Making lunches, planning dinners, being prepared for the next morning before going to bed. If I don’t do that I’m lost and I feel totally out of control. I’m amazed at how taking 10 minutes the night before can not only save me more time in the morning but keep me slightly more sane.
That being said, I’m signing off to get myself ready. I have a 3 mile run scheduled and I really want to try to get it in tomorrow morning before I start the day. I need to charge the ipod and I’m thinking of just sleeping in my running clothes to save some time.
Then I’m going to relax, pop some popcorn and watch the end of Amityville Horror on AMC. I’ve seen it a billion times but you guys should know by now I’m a sucker for the horror flicks. :)
Oh! and here’s a quick house update… I stopped by after work today…
