I’ve had a good day – been full of beans, must have been that extra hour of sleep.
I decided to clean the bathroom today – the housework in this house gets so neglected. I guess that’s the problem with share houses. So I went to grab my ajax from the kitchen and it’s gone! I can’t imagine anyone scabbing a thing of ajax… it’s not like it’s chocolate biscuits or anything good. I scrubbed as best I could without it but it was not easy.
It’s so nice to have a weekend at home to get things done – laundry and cleaning and all that boring shit. The past two weekends have been such a whirlwind that things have got so unorganised.
After all that, I went into the city to do an RPM class. I got there early so popped into Borders and browsed through some running books. One of them said that the basic strength exercises you need to do are squats, crunches and push ups – if you don’t have the time or inclination, then they are the exercises you should focus on. So I’m thinking on concentrating on those for the time being.
The RPM class was strange. We seemed to spend a lot of time doing recoveries. I don’t go to class to recover. We had two instructors. I think one was new because she looked like a spotlit rabbit for most of the class. The other one seemed like he’d come straight from a nightclub and his party drugs hadn’t worn off yet – he was all with the woops and woos! I kept expecting him to pull out a disco whistle.
After that I went to visit my son and got the latest episodes of Veronica Mars from him. That show is like crack cocaine to me.
On the way home I went to the supermarket and stocked up on food until payday. I have been having trouble thinking of meals – and not having a microwave at the moment doesn’t make things easy – then I remembered stir fries. I haven’t made one in ages.
Also, this is so stupid, but I never buy sausages because I figure if I buy a pack at the supermarket, I’ll show no self control. But I was at the butchers today and realised – der – I can just buy one or two there. I got chicken and chive ones. Yum.
I had a chicken and hoisin stirfry for dinner and watched the latest Veronica Mars and got everything sorted for work tomorrow. That’s about it. Not an exciting day but I feel content and like I’ve acheived a lot.
