Apologies for the late blog. Hopefully nobody was going through a Roulette Weekend withdrawal. I’m sure you were fine. There’s a perfectly good reason why there was not a blog posted by midnight as usual… .sleep. I needed sleep. According to my new phone app I’m 23.76 hours deficient in sleep this week. I don’t usually go to bed late, but for some reason that has been an issue all week. I like to be in bed by 10ish because I wake up at 6ish everyday. This week, it’s been after midnight ever single night and it’s catching up with me. I look five years older without sleep. Needless to say, tonight isn’t looking much better. Mel is going to a football game. The last one he went to lasted until 11, I think. But maybe I’ll get lucky and get in bed early.
On a brighter note, I’ve worked out every day this week. I am using that running app. It’s kind of like C25K but it’s not actually training you for a 5K. I don’t really know what it’s training you for. I did it twice. Then I did yoga yesterday and then my day got super busy and I worked the Foo Fighters concert for my sister. She runs a Moe’s Southwestern Grill, so sometimes I get to go to cool things and sell nachos. Any way to make a buck. So I did that and then went on a wild goose hunt for a South Doyle H.S. shirt for Mel to wear to school today. But I was not successful. The Walgreens didn’t have any and WalMart didn’t have any. It was not only frustrating, but also pretty unbelievable because both of those stores usually do carry school branded clothing. I was just out of luck for the day. Then the clock struck midnight. I went home and crawled into bed and woke up with luck back on my side.
I went to the Y this morning to work out, because it was a little cold and I’m not really a fan of the cold. I will walk the dogs later when it’s warm…… maybe. So I went in and just did a little 30 minute workout. On my way out, I ran into the fitness director of all the YMCA’s. I worked there years ago teaching Zumba and Water Aerobics. Some of you may remember that. Anyway, I stopped to speak to her and walked out with a water aerobics and a hip-hop type dance aerobics class to teach. I’m super excited. I’ve wanted to get in shape. I always have a hard time sticking to it. But if it’s a “job” that I’m getting paid to do, then I’m all for it. So now I have another gig to add onto my writing gig and this one is going to help keep me in shape while putting money in my pocket.
Things just keep getting better and better.
