It has been a long day for this lady. Especially given the late night and martinis from dinner last night. My long day started with a 6:00 am wake up, so I could take Goalielocks to practice. My saint of a Hubby was kind enough to run to Dunkin’ after hitting the gym, so I had coffee as soon as I woke up. Yep, he’s totally a keeper!

Me thinking about going to bed after waking up at 6

Of course the early wake up was well worth the pain. I love getting to spend time with my Goalie and time was plentiful since we drove to Miami. Additionally, I love spending time with some of my favorite hockey moms. A morning with them, even at the crack of dawn is a morning well spent. Obviously, it’s also fun to watch practice.

Post-practice I had trouble extracting myself from the couch. I was tired and love watching re-runs of The Office. Eventually, after the episode where they said goodbye to Michael Scott, I was able to peel myself off the couch to run. Thankfully, the last couple of runs have gone fantastically. Also, it woke me up.

I spent the rest of my afternoon rearranging my closet and dresser drawers. In fact, I even managed to get rid of some clothes. Baby steps. As I cleaned, I watched 8 Mile. Twenty minutes into the movie, the Mayor joined me for the movie. He loves watching tv from our bed. As for the movie, obviously, I’m a little late to the party on this, but it was really good.

Afterwards, I took the dogs out. The last couple of days, I’ve been taking Anakin to get the mail with me. This didn’t go so well. First of all, I thought about taking him for a walk in the circle. However, I abandoned this plan given the sheer number of basilisks running through the yard. Secondly, as I grabbed the mail out of the box, Anakin pulled hard to chase a lizard. In the process, I was pulled into the mail box hard. Consequently, I ended up bruised and scratched while the mailbox looks like it got hit by a car.

Here’s a list of our day’s activities:

*I finally finished Demons, by Dostoevsky. It’s my favorite book of his by far. I really enjoyed it. Last night I started, The Norse Queen by Johanna Wittenberg.

*I drove with Goalielocks to Kendall for hockey practice.

*I ran 2 miles and walked a mile. It went really well, which was fantastic.

*The family and I are watching Thirty Rock now that we’ve finished our movie and dinner.

*I made a wonderful Blue Apron meal kit for dinner. Tonight we enjoyed the sweet and spicy chicken. It was super yummy!

*My favorite surprise on the underwater cams, I watch during work, is seeing an octopus. Today I watched the safari cam, which never disappoints.

*Today’s word of the day is incandescent.

*I took my puppies including sweet Anakin for a walk. Did I mention I hate gnats, flies, and mosquitos? I was finally able to hang the fly traps.
