I have a feeling that nothing this weekend is going to happen on time. That’s not really a problem, since we only have one activity planned that runs on a schedule we don’t have any control over (we’re seeing The Pirates of Penzance at Wolf Trap tomorrow night – yay!), but it did affect my day today. My plan (like every weekend) was to do my long run early Saturday morning, but John pointed out (and I applaud his foresight) that tonight isn’t likely to be an early night and we’re going to want to get a relatively early start tomorrow morning, so there is no way I’m going to run five miles before we get in the car to go to Annapolis.
Instead, I did my five miles this morning. Of course, I didn’t start quite early enough, so I didn’t get back to the house until 7:45. Very late for a work morning. It took me a lot longer than usual to cool down and stop sweating (because it’s so crazy hot right now), and I was puttering around the house doing last-minute cleaning things, and then I cleaned my bathroom, and then I got in the shower. At 8:45. When on a normal work morning, I’m at work by 9. It’s not a big deal – work is flexible as long as I put the hours in, but it messes up my whole day.
*Several hours later*
Well, it didn’t mess up my entire day, but it did continue. I waited until just about the last minute to get to the store this afternoon, making it home only minutes before Corey and Gaby arrived. Because – yay! – Corey and Gaby are visiting for a few days!
