The past week suddenly felt very long about halfway through. Things are slowing down again at work, so that may be why. I’m sure the weather contributed too. Cold! Very cold. It was -4 F when I woke up this morning. So tired of being cold.
I talked with Gina a lot this week over email. It seemed to be good for both of us. It provided us several chances to laugh anyway. We poured our frustrations out to each other, offered advice when we could, and jokes when we couldn’t. We decided a Thelma and Louise-type vacation would be fun, except without any murdering or driving off of cliffs. Because things would probably stop being fun if we had to go to prison or be dead.
I’ve been continuing to work out with the Wii Fit for the past week, combining strength training and yoga. (Man, you don’t realize how old and out of shape you are until you try to bend your body in ways you didn’t think were possible!) I tend to joke about Wii Fit workouts, insinuating they’re not real workouts. But I’ll be damned if I’m not seeing some positive changes, so I guess I’ll keep it up! We’re being promised highs in the upper thirties for the weekend, so I think I’ll add some outdoor walks to the fitness routine.
Saturday night is bowling night – always a highlight of my week. We may go to dinner before, or maybe do something fun after and call it Valentine’s Day, since Mark will be spending the evening at work on the actual day. That’s okay. I don’t put much stock in a Hallmark holiday anyway. And besides, it’s a bowling night!
