So, I am straight exhausted from Thanksgiving. We hosted our first Thanksgiving as a married couple together, which was awesome because I got to flex my cooking muscles. Most people assume because I eat pretty healthy and I pretty much hate to eat most things (mushrooms, potato chips, pickles, mealy tomatoes, watermelon sometimes, and the gourds), that I suck at cooking. But when your options are either hate everything OR starve to death, you get pretty creative with cooking, which is exactly what I did. All day on Thursday.
Okay, so Thanksgiving was all well and good, but immediately following, Austin and I drove up to Philly for a funeral, and because the death occurred so suddenly, we drove up and back to Philly in a day, not something I’d recommend. As a total side-note, as an avid runner and marathoner, I can honestly say that my legs hurt worse sitting in the car all day than they did running 30 miles in the desert last month.
So that said, I went into work for a little while on Sunday night after we got back, to clean out my inbox and work out and get some blood flowing down in my legs, and I formulated a plan to come into work, guns blazing on Monday morning, ready to rock.
I sent approximately 1.5 emails before the internet at work starting cutting out. So naturally, I decided to go for a run in hopes that the internet would magically be restored by the time I got back.
No such luck.
I wandered around the branch. I looked sadly at my iPhone. I worked out some more. I contemplated lifting weights. Decided against it. Ate some lunch for a while. Thought about why Nick Jonas’ new single was so good.
I’m still not sure why it’s so good. Why he sounds black. Why he’s so cute. Why he’s playing with my emotions.
And by 4pm, when the internet finally decided it was going to come back on, I had like 1/2 of what I wanted to get done, done.
I ended up having to stay at work hours later than I planned to.
And still. The most unproductive day ever.
Ah well. How was your Monday?
