Kinda sore
Sunday. 6.23.13 7:15 pm
My legs are a bit sore today from the jog yesterday. Hopefully they'll be better in time for when I go jogging tomorrow. I'll still go even if they're still sore, but I'd rather them not be.

Work was uneventful; exactly how a Sunday should be. Hopefully tomorrow will be just the same.

I've gotten in to buying more things at Trader Joe's over the past few days. . . it's dangerous because most everything that I've bought so far has been good. And the prices are considerably reasonable. I bought a few more bags of frozen gnocchi, one each for the next few days. Thursday I'll kind of be on my own with food, but that's okay. It's only one day before payday so even if I don't eat anything, I'll be able to go grocery shopping the next day.

It's been overcast and rainy today, but it's been muggy. It almost feels like I'm in Florida again. However, I would rather it be like this because at least then it's not too warm in my room. This weekend is supposed to be in the 80s. Fuck, I may have to buy that fan that I've been putting off buying.

Anywho, I think that's all I have for now.

Until tomorrow. . .

Third time's the charm?
Saturday. 6.22.13 7:10 pm
I went for a quick jog today. A little less than a mile and a half. Having the correct shoes make a big difference. I felt more comfortable while jogging. I'll be going out again Monday and Tuesday after work so that should be good. I need to keep this up this time, but we'll see what happens. I said that the last time too.

Other than laundry and going for a jog, nothing of significance happened today. Someone is outside using some kind of generator {like for carpet cleaning or power washing} and it's starting to piss me off, but if I close my windows, it'll get too hot in here. It's already 78 in my room. The fan is helping some, but not enough.

I need to get my hair cut at some point soon. Especially if I'm going to start jogging on a regular basis. It's just too long for this kind of heat. It's kind of too long in general, but more so if I'm going to be exercising on a regular basis during the summer. Perhaps the next check that I receive with overtime . . . or whenever I just can't take it anymore. Whichever comes first. I already know where I want to go and I'll be getting it cut for donation again so it's just a matter of getting it done.

Anywho, I'm going to continue reading while I still have the daylight. as much as I prefer overcast, cloudy, rainy days, the sunlight is good for some things.

Until tomorrow. . .

Where have you been my whole life?
Friday. 6.21.13 6:03 pm
So I had gnocchi for the first time today. Seriously, why have I never eaten this food before? I've heard of it. I've seen it in the stores. I've seen recipes for it online. 26 1/2 years and today was the first time I've ever tried it. I went with a simple option, per the recommendation of a fellow coworker: Trader Joe's Gnocchi al Gorgonzola. It was super easy to make and tasted great. The little gnocchi was the perfect kind of chewy and the cheese sauce made a good addition. Part of me is glad I only got one bag because I would have overstuffed myself.

I may have to make more frequent trips to this wonderful store. I always thought the prices were a little much, but after buying some organic cheese, carrots, red pepper hummus and bananas, along with the gnocchi, some pepperoni, two boxes of Israeli couscous, chocolate croissants and mini peanut butter cups, I still spent less than $30. I think the only reason I shop at Safeway so often is because of the gas reward points. I also do enjoy their deli breakfast sandwiches. I'm kind of stuck on those.

I didn't go running this morning, as planned. I ended up sleeping in a lot later than I thought I would and Jacob had to go to work soon afterward. So if I had gone running, it would have been by myself and the motivation isn't there for that yet. Tomorrow I have to get up early enough to get my laundry done in a timely fashion so the jogging will definitely happen then. I have to break in my shoes before the 5K at the end of next month.

Anywho, other than the trip to the store and my amazing introduction to gnocchi, today has been rather uneventful. Tomorrow, aside from the laundry and the jogging, will be the same.

Until then. . .

Oops
Thursday. 6.20.13 6:56 pm
I spent more money than I should have on crap food so now I have to improvise for the next week until I get paid. I still have plenty of money, but I was aiming to not have to dip in to the reserves. Saving up for a vacation is hard enough. It's my own fault for not exercising self control, but still. Oh well. I'm okay with eating very little for the next week.

My headache finally went away. I have a feeling it's because I need to get my eyes checked. I keep saying that; it's been a repetitive statement for at least the past month. I know I will eventually schedule something; it's too late in the day for me to do so now. Perhaps tomorrow when I'm sitting here bored out of my mind.

It's money that I don't want to spend. I'm registering my vehicle and getting it smog checked next month {it's called emissions here because there's little to no smog here} so that's also money that I wasn't anticipating on having to spend. I knew that I would be able to afford it on time this year {last year I was struggling and got ticketed for expired tabs,} but I somehow forgot to add that in to the budget when thinking about how much money I could put aside out of each paycheck. Ugh. This idea of getting a part time job is looking more and more like a requirement rather than an option.

No plans for the weekend. I'm sure I'll be spectacularly bored sitting at home over the next two days. As long as I get to sleep in, I could care less how bored I am.

Until tomorrow. . .

Headache
Wednesday. 6.19.13 7:20 pm
This is going to be really short. I woke up from my nap with a headache. Oddly enough, I didn't have the headache before I took my nap. For some reason I always thought that naps helped eliminate headaches, but apparently not the one I took today.

I'm thinking it may have something to do with my vision since it hurts right behind my eye which means that pretty much looking at anything is making the headache worse.

I have to keep looking away every other sentence so I'm going to end this here.

Until tomorrow. . .

Lost time
Tuesday. 6.18.13 6:11 pm
I've spent nearly 16 hours over the last week or so playing a game on my phone. 16 hours. . . A lot of that occurred in the two days I was home sick from work. It's a game that I can play while laying down, but still. That's a lot of lost time on just a game. Funny/sad part is that it won't keep me from continuing to play it. Ah, fun times.

I finally got my running shoes; a pair that fits. So much for starting a new jogging routine at the beginning of June. I also bought socks that are soft and breathable so hopefully it keeps me cool enough while I'm out jogging. The plan is to start up on Friday, but it all depends on how I feel. Exerting any kind of excess energy right now causes me to get stuffed up, cough more and gives me a sinus headache. My ears are still not clogging up, so that's a plus; I can hear more clearly again. I just wish this cold would go away as quickly as it came on. It's been over a week now.

It's rather windy right now. There was a brief bit of rain last night and some sprinkles this morning, but then the clouds moved on and the sun came out. I was hoping that as windy was it has been getting that the rain would be moving back in, but alas, I look outside and still a clear, blue sky. Go figure. Maybe later or tomorrow.

I probably won't be going to a movie any time soon. I forgot that I need to register my vehicle next month so that's about $150 more than I was expecting to have to pay. I also will need to get my oil changed next month so that'll be even more. Ugh. I may have to actually start looking seriously for a part time job. If I haven't been able to save up any kind of extra money by the end of next month, I'll look for/get a part time job. Maybe as a stock person or cashier.

I didn't get a nap in today and I'm super tired right now. I also just ate so that's probably got something to do with it. I have to stay up until at least the sun goes down. The last time I said I needed to do that it didn't happen. The sun will be going down in a couple hours so all I have to do is occupy my time for two hours. Perhaps now is a good time to start reading.

There was something else I needed to write, but now I don't remember. . . . .

Oh yeah. For someone {me} who doesn't like dreams much, I had a rather pleasant set of dreams last night. They all involved an actor whom I've recently been swooning over. Nothing too crazy and wild, but nice and comfortable. I got angry at my alarm this morning because it went off and popped me out of one of the more relaxing dreams I was having. I can only hope to dive back in to them again tonight. If I'm going to dream, I want them all to be like they were last night.

Alright, time to kill two hours. Maybe I'll waste time on that stupid game. I'm not sure I'm in the mood to read just quite yet. I'll let you know tomorrow what I ended up doing.

Until then. . .
