People – I got nuthin’. Actually, I have one thing – it is the one thing that happened before I got sick but now I’m sick and cranky and feeling totally uninspired. There will be no Hump Day Miscellany tomorrow.
My weekend started out great – Humbly Anne came to town Thursday night. Friday was kind of screwed up because I had to work and she kept thinking I would stop any minute and we could go out and do stuff but the infernal phone kept ringing and the emails kept showing up and before you know it it was time to go see the caterer and taste some food. That part was great! The food at this wedding will be deelickcious. Friday night we went to see “Notes on a Scandal” and then had dinner.
Saturday I went out for a quick, early bike ride on my new love machine. I took a back road that has a hill that defeated me last time I went there. I was on the hog at that time so I figured I’d have no trouble getting up that hill. WRONG! I quit before I got to the top even though I was still moving at 5 mph and really didn’t need to quit. I quit. I got really mad at myself. I tried to get going again but it was too steep. I fumed, I railed and shook my fist at that hill and yelled “I’ll get you next time!” . And then I realized that I didn’t have to wait until next time. I could just ride down the hill, let my heart rate come down and head back up. And I did. All the way to the top, down the other side and then back up again. HA! That hill tried to kick my ass but I kicked right back. Now I just need to work on that ‘I never give up on hills’ thing I used to have.
After the ride we went forth and shopped! Saturday was all about my under construction bathroom (total re-model). Before, during and after pictures to be posted when it is complete in a week or so. Sunday was all about wedding stuff. Sunday night was all about the Oscars although we missed the first 30 minutes which, as it turns out, wasn’t that great so ho hum.
The sick part started in earnest Sunday morning. Lung congestion, headache, that “ugh” all over feeling. So – Sunday no workout, Monday no workout and today I went to the pool and scared everyone with how bad I looked so I turned around and went home and got back in bed. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I’ll try to write something more inspired when I get better.
