Tuesday Thoughts

I have to be at work at least an hour earlier than normal every day for the rest of the week.  That means my alarm went off an hour earlier, which was painful to say the least.  Luckily the roommates brought back a dozen bagels from NYC, so I had that to look forward to at least.  Also, my car is slowly turning yellow.  Every morning there’s a thin layer of pollen hanging out.  It’s fun.

There is a lot less traffic at 6:50 in the morning than there is at 7:50, it’s kind of nice.  I think I made it to work in record time this morning.  However, I am not looking forward to sitting in 5 hours of workshop today where I actually have to pay attention, take notes, and relay the information to my coworkers.  How will I find time to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

I’ve had my Jamaican vacation booked since like February, and last night I finally forked over the cash for airline tickets to pretty much complete the reservations.  Well, besides the balance on the resort, that’s not due until the fall.  I figure with gas prices projected to hit $5.00 a gallon, airline tickets are only going to go up and better to just suck it up now.  Thanks American Express for giving me a $40 discount with my almost 9000 rewards points, helpful, I guess.  It was a painful purchase to complete, and I officially need to place my Amex in ice and freeze it so I don’t use it ever again.

I finally got my ass back on the treadmill running last night.  Nothing crazy, 3 miles at something like a 9:30 pace.  Surprisingly, after two weeks off, it didn’t feel awful.  Watching the Boston Marathon yesterday morning probably helped to motivate me to get running.  Congrats to everyone who finished/ran/didn’t die, especially AR who PR’d and ran a 3:18.  Amazing.  I was getting so excited every time one of your splits would come through.

I’m hoping that since I’ve gotten myself to work a good hour earlier than normal, that means I get to leave an hour earlier, I suppose we’ll see.  Ugh alright, I’m off to work to actually pay attention.  Catch ya later.

  1. Yes- I definitely enjoy my weeks of being at work/leaving work an hour and a half earlier for that reason. Traffic is much less frustrating.

    Good to know your first day back on the tread didn’t kill you. I’m thinking mine will be tomorrow. Maybe.. dunno… why am I scared?

  2. Good call on the airline tickets. Hope you get to leave early!

  3. I don’t do well with mornings. If my boss dared ask me to come in an hour early we’d have problems.
    Ok, I’d do it, but I would not be happy about it.

  4. I LOVE working earlier…then I leave earlier. NO traffic is the BEST part 🙂

  5. I love working odd times so I can avoid traffic…always worth it in my opinion!! 🙂

  6. The traffic is the reason I switched my hours to 7-4. Oklahoma traffic is a joke by the way… so that basically makes me a totall wuss.
    I NEED to book my flight to Mexico b/c of gas prices but I can’t until I figure out when I’m moving. It’s really pissing me off.

    • 7-4?! Geez, I used to be 7-3:30. Yeah I’m trying to figure out if I should book all the upcoming flights I’m going to need now.

  7. Good luck surviving the earlier wake up call AND the conference. Yuck to both!

  8. Waking up early is def. an adjustment. Although I’m at my dest by 650 haha.

  9. Thanks for the shout out 😉
