What a week what a week what a week!
So, some updatey-type things. I am still pregnant lol. Every day I walk into work, I see my boss’s eyes widen, and he’ll (in the nicest way) be like “Oh thank God, you’re here!” It’s funny, like on Wednesday, I was feeling a little pukey, and I ended up lying around the house for a long time, and on Thursday when I came in, everyone was like, “Oh! We thought you might have had your baby!” Nope, still here!
The week’s been good. Productive at work, and not so much at home, but hoping for that magical burst of fairy energy that will help me straighten up and get that last push to get things together.
First let’s talk about the funniest thing that happened last week – this spine thing. So like a year ago, someone left this really really elaborate, doctor-grade spine in my office, and we could not figure out where it came from.
Since I’m going to be out on maternity for a while starting sometime soon, I’ve been straightening out my office, and the spine had to go. So I put it up for free on one of those buy/sell/trade/free pages on Facebook, and within MOMENTS, I had requests left and right for this thing. And then I got these unbelievably weird comments. One suggesting that I send the spine to Obama, and another simply stating that there were plenty of spineless people in this country that could use it. Uhhh…ok weirdo, do you want this thing for your classroom that you’re decorating or not? Anyhoo, a guy ended up coming to get it, and I hope it works out for him. I had ZERO idea that I was in possession of such a hot ticket item, but glad this somewhat offbeat item could find a home.
I think I found a new occasional lunch spot?
I sort of mentioned this last update this place I found in downtown Raleigh, Raleigh Raw, which is this really crunchy kind of juice place with really interesting food combos. I will caveat this place by saying it is pricey for lunch, okay? I’m not saying it’s not worth it, but it costs more than snagging something quickly at like Wendy’s, but hear me out.
My friend Devin went and told me exactly what I needed to order, this bowl thingie with rice and sesame seeds, and mango and watermelon and some salmon…I don’t know, there was a lot going on, but it was delicious, super super filling, and I didn’t feel the least bit crappy when I finished it. Now, someone in my office complained about what that horrible smell was, but hey, can’t win ’em all. If you’re local and and all into this sort of thing, check it out. They also had kombucha on tap and some other interesting stuff in their grab-n-go, so it’s worth checking out.
I also swore I was retired from teaching as of last week I think, but that was not to be.
I had to fill in last minute for class two times this week, and I think I’m really retired now. This Zumba class I did today, I did a lot more coaching than I am used to, but it was literally exactly what the baby wanted, and I couldn’t do more without feeling like I was overdoing it. I am so grateful for the fact that I have remained active for so long, and I plan to keep walking and stretching, but my Pump/Cycle/Zumba days are on hold for now, and that’s what the baby wants 🙂
On that note, I am so excited for when the time is right and I’m able to run again. I miss it. More than missing running, I miss the social aspect and the efficiency of being able to go for a run and then pretty much being done with my cardio for the day. I’m not good at doing things slowly, and sometimes I’m too slow for my own liking these days. But that’s okay.
What are your plans for the weekend?
