Spring Fever

So what does a girl with no date do on Valentine’s Day?  Well, if you’re me, you go to the grocery store and laugh at all the men in there buying flowers and cards.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute fellas.  It was really amusing, and I actually laughed out loud when I got off the elevator on the second floor and saw the crowd of dudes in the card section.  Then I meandered over to the wine and picked out two bottles :).

The gym didn’t happen because I realized yesterday afternoon, with my long run happening on Sunday instead of Saturday that my schedule is all off by one day, and yesterday was a rest day.  Fine by me, since I had to go grocery shopping anyway.  The rest of the night was spent on the couch with my Valentine’s (Dani and Adrienne) watching the Caps play, shocker I know.

So I think the spring temps yesterday actually caused some people to lose their minds, because on my drive in this morning I saw a couple enjoying their Z3, with the top down.  It was 33 degrees.  Let’s not get ahead of ourselves folks, it is still February after all.  Although with a forecast looking like this:

I can’t help but get excited either.  In fact plans for a BBQ and some back porch drinking may already be in the works for Friday.  I’m so glad I brought at least one pair of flip flops down with me when I moved!  Got to love random warm days in February.  All I could think about yesterday at work was that if I were still down at JMU in college, I totally would have bailed on classes to sit on the quad all day or drink in my backyard while playing beer die or something.  Sigh, the good old days.

So pretty much the only thing getting me through this week, is the though of a three day weekend and having Monday off.  I think I’ve been looking forward to this holiday since we came back after Christmas haha.  Well, being as it’s Tuesday, I got stuck in a shit ton of traffic on my way to work this morning and my gas light came on.  Typical.  Anyway, have a good one!
