It’s Friday and it’s been a long week, so it’s off to Margaritaville for me. And by Margaritaville, I do mean the state of kind. Yes, sir It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere! Consequently the hubby and I are enjoying the pitcher of margaritas that came with dinner. While I rarely drink anymore, today felt like a good day to break the dry spell. Not too mention a good margarita is pretty persuading.
After what felt like a week full of virtual school overtime, I am more than ready for a break and the weekend. Markedly, we had a really productive week, but it was exhausting. I’ve had to get very granular with each boy on their assignments. Even so, it doesn’t feel like I’m doing an adequate job. Moreover, it doesn’t feel like the work ever end, which isn’t to say they’re being assigned too much work. Rather it’s a reflection of the sure energy output required to get one assignment adequately completed. Like I told my hubby, I’ve definitely earned a European vacation for the work I’ve put in this past month.
This morning I had a lab appointment at Quest, which was an adventure. I hadn’t been to this location in along time as my doctor’s office normally does my bloodwork. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, they’re only doing bloodwork for patients with appointments. Thankfully, I didn’t have to wait too long since I had an appointment. However, during that short time severe elderly patients had come into the lab.
This location has no from desk only kiosks where you can check in. Sadly, an elderly couple was completely confounded by the technology. They were so stressed. Fortunately, the lab tech was able to say yes and get the elderly man in the schedule. At that moment, I was grateful for everything my parents do for my grandma’s. Conversely, I was sad that this elderly couple had nobody to help them navigate the new technology. Thankfully, the lab tech was very nice and patient.
After my lab appointment, I did my BBG ab workout for week ten. Those damn, confounded burpees with a push up and tuck jump were again included in the workout. Needless to say those things are pure evil. As for the rest of the workout, it was great. Naturally, it was challenging, but outside of the burpees it was manageable and felt great. After four circuits, I had completed 90 pushups and 60 half burpees along with a lot of other exercises. Clearly, I better have six pack abs tomorrow!
Afterwards I hastily ate lunch as I made preparations for day one of yoga teacher training with Monica. Right at 1:00 pm, I was ready to start my yoga teacher journey. Naturally, I also had my second cup of coffee on hand. Today’s class included a five minute meditation, which was great. As for coursework, we spent the session learning about the rich history of yoga. Truly, it was really interesting. I’m super excited to be on this journey.
Post training, I had to go back to reality and deal with virtual school. Naturally, I found myself needing a meditation time out relatively soon thereafter. I’ve started an afternoon meditation practice devoted to stopping bad habits. Day one was cravings, day 2 was worry and today was negative thoughts. It’s a short meditation and easy to fit into anyone’s schedule. Subsequently, I was ready to tackle the rest of my school day after the mediation.
Tonight we’ve taken a delightful trip to Margaritaville come plate with an amazing dinner catered by Dinners in Motion. Honestly, their food is incredible as is their price. You can’t beat a full taco dinner (chicken and steak,) dessert and a carafe of margaritas plus delivery for $70. We have had some great experience supporting our local restaurants during this pandemic. We are so fortunate to have so many talented and creative chefs in our community. Lastly, it’s been a great time to support the industry and those that work within. The first time we ordered from Dinners in Motion they were operating on a skeleton staff. Not even two weeks later, they have rehired fourteen people. If someone tells you that you can’t do good thing supporting your local restaurants, they’re lying to you!
