Happy Friday!! There is something about Fridays that makes me happy. It is not uncommon for me when I talk to people on Fridays to begin my conversation with ” Happy Friday”
I am hoping that I didn’t day this same thing last Friday on this same blog. I am becoming forgetful…..becoming?? Well maybe I am a little forgetful. You be the judge 🙂
This morning I set my alarm for 8 am (most days I get up around this time…just 1 of the perks of an empty-nester) But I was really tired. I had stayed up past midnight and wanted to sleep just a little longer! So when my alarm went off a little past 8 am, I reset the alarm for another 10 minutes of shut-eye. SO it’s 10 minutes later, it goes off again and THEN I reset it again for another 10 mins. OK… so the third time is the charm I guess…It goes off again, I shut if off and grumble. I finally rise and walk to the bathroom. The whole time I was thinking I really, really, wish that I could stay in bed today just a wee bit more! (Sorry I couldn’t resist the Irish in me)
You see I thought today was Thursday and on Thurs. mornings I weight train with a trainer at 9 am. It takes me about 10 minutes to get there. It is like 8:40 now and I rush to throw on some work out clothes. Because I still have to eat something and then make some coffee. I don’t usually plan what I’m going to wear. NOPE….I am not one of those people in the gym that have matching outfits on. You know the ones I’m talking about. The women that do not look like they just go out of bed like me. These are the ones with the latest in work out gear and sneakers to match, the perfect work out bag, full makeup on…. I think you get it. NO REALLY I AM NOT JUDGING-JUST MAKING OBSERVATIONS. I like to sweat when I go to the health club; I usually do ½ hour or so of cardio after my 1-hour of weight training and never wear any makeup.
Anyway…I throw on a jogging bra or top that has a build in bra in it. Grab items from my closet:
~ Black yoga pants
~ Salmon colored tank top
~ Light blue with yellow writing on it LIFE is GOOD t shirt, over my tank top
~ Black and blue sneakers oh yeah & grey short socks & wait for it…..
~ A bright fuscia colored fleece that I bought in Switzerland
~ Brown and tan calf height cheetah print UGG boots. It was a pleasant sight…really.
Also I forgot to tell you my yoga pants this morning were just below the knee….cropped ones…that I usually wear in the nice weather. But it seems like all my other yoga pants were in the wash. Looked super cute with the boots…. Ha-ha
SO I arrive at the fitness place, finish the rest of my coffee in the car; grab my stuff and head into the door. Right away I sense something is wrong. My trainer just finished training someone and he was leaving the same door I was coming through and I am usually right after him. But… there was a woman standing next to my trainer. I think oh-oh too many people in here right now. It was 9:05 am. My trainer raises both of his arms up in the air, smiles and says: Morris I thought I said 10:30 today. Me: you’re right you did.
OMFG OH MY FREAKING GOD…. you are kidding me?, I say Oh I thought it was Thurs…..duh it is FRIDAY!!!!!
Do you mean that I could have stayed in bed for another whole hour? I was so bummed out.
I get in my car call Bruce and tell him that I am losing my mind. We discuss that he will be finished with work today around lunch and he asks me if want to have lunch with him today. I’m excited we hardly ever to get to do this during the week. I told him to call me when he is finished.
I head home and have some oatmeal, let my dogs out do a little online shopping. I’m looking for a carpet for under my kitchen table and a tabl -cloth for another table that has glass on it. I browse and it’s time to leave already to go back to my trainer.
I finish about 12 pm. I am thinking about lunch. So I head to Panera and order something to go. While I am filling the glass with my fav hibiscus tea, Bruce calls me. He says what are you up to? ME: I just finished working out, got gas in my car and now I am at Panera. HIM: What are you doing there? I thought we were going to lunch? How could you forget that? we just talked about it? yada,yada,yada! OMG….really how could I have forgotten that? We just discussed it less than 3 hours ago. Oh MY…. I am feeling bad and tell him just tell me where to meet you and I wil (now remember my lovely outfit….and no makeup) we meet up, have a nice lunch in a new place near by. It’s a new winery and eatery, so we each have a glass of wine and then head home. I take a nap (another perk of the empty-nester thing)
We head to an early movie and end up having a really nice evening. I think he has forgiven me for forgetting earlier. The food from Panera sits in the refrigerator.
I think I better stock up on sticky notes. I may have to start using them more than I would like to. SO you can judge for yourself…. if I am losing my memory…but that’s ok you don’t need to share with me 🙂
