Well D is out of town this week, and I was just reading another bloggers post about her bachelorette behaviors, when her hubby goes out of town for a few days for work. D is on the road about 10 days out of the month. And while I miss him dearly, there are also some things that I enjoy about having the place to myself. There are certain things I do, and do not do, only when he is away.
For example, I rarely make the bed when he is gone. Otherwise I am pretty anal about the bed being made, but when D is away for some reason I look at it and go...meh, Also my eating habits change- I eat more breakfast foods for dinner, and tend to pick up a veggie burrito from Taco time at least one..or two nights :-) I watch all the lame shows D hates, stay up late reading and I leave all my dishes in the sink until the end of the day. So I guess I am a bit of a slob when no one else is around :-)
Now that I have Harley to keep me company I al least have someone to talk
Speaking of the four legged wonder, Harley and I braved the skating rink like pathways and went for a short run. Since the weather has changed, D has been taking on most of the running with Harley and I have been doing the walking and sticking to the tready for my running. But I had to take one for the team today, and Syl must have been a part of the conspiracy because my schedule called for a 45min run on snowy terrain. The short run was more than enough. It was exhausting just trying to keep my feet under me and make sure I didn't trip on Harley or wipe out. I was spent by the end.
Tonight Sarah asked me to come along to the pool as she is taking lessons and there was a lane swim from 9-10pm. Originally I thought I would go, but after getting home from bootcamp I realized I am too tired to get a good workout. I had back to back sessions today on top of bootcamp tonight and I am just done. So another missed swim, but I am determined to make it up.
For now, I am going to bed early...and not to read.

TFTD: Run 45mins

Hi Amber! sounds like you know how to enjoy the bachelorette ME time too. What is it about breakfast food for dinner?

Hey AD - That's hilarious. Before I was with JR I NEVER made my bed. I don't think I made it for ... 2 years maybe. Well - when my parents were in town for a visit. I ALSO frequent Taco Time. Sounds like you're doing a great job with Harley. We have PVR'd all the Dog Whisperers and watch them for tips. Though we haven't seen any episodes on house training. AARRGGHH! She's driving us CRAZY!
