6:00 Alarm goes off and I am shocked that it is 6am. I slept through the whole night ( usually I wake up for water or bathroom like a toddler) J is sleeping in today, so I’m less motivated to jump out of bed.
6:30 Marcy dog demands that I wake up & let her out. I make coffee and toast.
8:00 arrive at work in sandals and a winter coat (colorado weather is bananas) and head up to carline to open car door.
12:30 The morning flew with all my intervention groups. I head off school grounds to take care of some HR issues. I decide to travel to the district with a co-worker – which leads to a stop at whole foods too. I had packed a lunch, but I struggle to turn down grape leaves/ watermelon cucumber water & cookies. (12.88)
13:45 because of my extend field trip to district and whole foods, I decide to take today as a rest day. My legs feel pretty beat up from the past 4 days of running and with the marathon in just a few days I only feel mildly guilty. Instead I spend sometime on the interwebs. I consider it a half break before the after school program.
15:00 Spent most of my half break reading other money diaries and trying to figure out how to enroll into a 401k. I am still trying to build up my emergency fund first but am hoping to solve all of that by the time I have my savings act all together. While I enjoy the time to surf the web but its back to real work I go.
15:30 The cafeteria tables have all been put away, so we have the children eat snack on the floor and then head outside to the playground.
18:30 I get to my massage and discuss with the therapist that I’d like a firm deep tissue massage – he indicates he’ll stick around a 5. I’m not sure what the rating is out of but man did he work my itband and calves.
20:00 I stumble out of the massage and decide to finally sign up for the monthly membership. I’ve been thinking about it for a year and since I no longer have any gym memberships or debt payments I decide to finally join up. I pay for my 90 minute massage & tip and drive home in a post massage haze. ($105)
20:30 I considered stopping at several places for dinner on my way home but ultimately decide that we have enough food at the house for me to cobble together a meal. I had set my sights on eggs and toast but discovered that we had open pesto sauce and artichoke hearts that would need to be used before the week ended (and we are traveling this weekend) so I coo up some angel hair and call it.
21:00 Land on couch and catch up with J about our days, we watch a very bizarre show about golden hamsters before J lands on Frontline. I last about 30 minutes before deciding to make progress towards bed.
21:30 I read for about 20 minutes from Scrappy Little Nobody before calling it and going to sleep.
