Happy Wednesday friends! Halfway through the week and maybe some of you have a short work week so you’re even closer to the end. Have a great day 🙂
Tuesday morning started out on a high considering I woke up and wasn’t congested. Isn’t that the best feeling after being sick for a few days? I felt like a new women while I got ready for work and was able to breathe without a box of tissues right next to me. For breakfast, I had some scrambled eggs and toast with cream cheese.
At lunch during work, I kept reading my latest book “The End of the Jews” by Adam Mansbach. It follows three different people, who happen t be Jewish (thus the title), that are faced with choosing between people they love and their preferred art form. I got a little less than halfway through it and enjoying it so far. Unfortunately I think I will have to take a pause in reading it while I travel so I don’t lug this around with me.
After work, I got home as fast as I could so I cold change for my run. The last time I ran was a week ago and each time I thought I would be okay enough to run it didn’t happen. It was glorious to sweat again. The week off caught up to me at the end since my legs wanted to go fast at the beginning (oops) so my splits were pretty inconsistent. Oh well! I was just happy to finally run again. It was absolutely gorgeous out. Less than a mile in and I regretted wearing a long sleeve with my shorts. It felt like shorts and tshirt weather and it’s Decemeber – crazy!
Once I was stretched, showered and in pjs, it was time to pack. Alex and I booked some pretty cheap flights to visit my family over Christmas and I prefer to pack ahead of time to avoid forgetting anything. It was the hot mess express as I called it, I could not decide what I wanted to wear and then I was trying to pull some stuff for Alex as he was walking through NYC which was so loud for some reason. The tricky part about packing for a holiday – figuring out how to pack gifts so the other person can’t see them while also leaving enough room for bringing anything back. Somehow I miscalculated days and good thing Alex noticed or we would have each been one outfit short.
After attempting to pack and not feeling it, I worked on dinner. Operation Eat Everything In The Fridge was a success in that all leftovers were gone but a fail since there weren’t enough leftovers for two people. Instead of having pasta like Alex did, I roasted a potato for my dinner and topped it with a tiny bit of cheese, ketchup and hot sauce. So good! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I could eat a roasted potato every day of my life and not get bored of it.
When dinner was all cleaned up, we actually packed (thanks babe!) and sat on the couch. Like the wild party animals we are, Alex and I had shots of Emergen-C. Alex figured just getting over a cold and traveling would be a recipe for disaster so extra vitamin C was a must. We hung out on the couch and watched part of a “Stranger Things” episode before heading to bed.
Question of the day: Are you someone who packs in advance or rushes around last minute?
