This week was long and jam-packed, which is why I haven't touched the blog in a while. Let's see...
Monday: Pretty normal. My parents went to pick up their new Mac and were gone the entire evening so Mat and I had a few hours just us. It was lovely.
Tuesday: I had a doctor appointment after work. The woman doctor. You know, THAT appointment. I was then supposed to meet my former roomie Jenn for Golden Spoon and much needed catch-up, but traffic reared its ugly head and she couldn't get here in time so we rescheduled for Thursday.
Wednesday: Mat and I went to an open house/vendor appreciation at The Summit House. We were mainly going for the free food, and holy crap was that a good idea. They had tons of amazingly delicious things as well as free champagne, wine, beer, etc. It was awesome.
Thursday: Follow up appointment with my dermatologist after work, and then meeting Jenn for Golden Spoon. The dermatologist is in Pico Rivera, and I work in Santa Ana, so after having driven 20 miles to get to work in the morning, I drove from Santa Ana to Pico Rivera, then back to Whittier where we were meeting, then to get gas at Costco, and finally home. This was around the time that I realized I have virtually no spending money until I get paid at the end of the month. Good times.
Friday: Oh glorious Friday. I gave quizzes in all classes which gave me a few minutes of quiet in each class but resulted in a shit ton - yes, a shit ton - of grading for this weekend. More good times.
The evening was ok. Not exactly what I wanted for a Friday night, but a lot of stuff is going on right now.
Today: I RAN 7 MILES!! Yes, 7 miles!! And I didn't really even get that tired. I got up at 7:15 so it wouldn't be too hot, and of course the sun was already out (stupid sun) but the air was much much cooler than last Saturday so the sun didn't bother me at all. I also was a good little girl and didn't exercise at all on Thursday (just like I'm supposed to according to my training plan) and I just took a 2 mile walk yesterday morning. Mat and I didn't do our usual evening walk last night due to the stuff that is going on, but it was probably for the best because my run was awesome.
I officially signed up for the half-marathon in Long Beach a couple days ago. No turning back now!
Here's to hoping for a good weekend (despite the shit ton of grading - I should probably get on that) and the end to some stuff.
