My plans for today included sleeping in -- instead I was awoken by the unmistakable sound of a cat regurgitating. As I lay in bed, I thought to myself, "Why can't they puke on the hardwood floor? Why do they always move towards the carpet?" Ahhh well. I was so bleary eyed that I ended up dumping way too much carpet cleaner on the carpet. At least it's cleaned up! I have to get up and clean it right away, otherwise one of the other animals will eat it. I discovered this one day -- I have only caught Peanut doing it once, but I'm sure they all have done it. GROSS. And then they lick my face. Nice.
Then I had an accident at the computer with my protein shake. I'm the worst person for food at the computer -- worse than a kid. We don't have television (well,we get one channel), so I watch shows via the internet. I'll eat grapefruit that squirts on the computer screen. Eeeep. The protein shake spilled all over the chair, the floor and on the printer tray. I bet you didn't know how many cracks and crevasses there are on a printer tray. And, the ground flax and wheat bran mixed in is reminiscent of actual vomit. I cleaned the little cracks with Q-tips and kept wedging in a sheet of paper towel to get into the other places. Hoping Mike won't notice... ;)
Thursday's bike workout got the best of me. I was on the last set of 3 (175 - 190W) and my legs just couldn't take it anymore. I know it was because of my swimming exertions this past week. I ended up pedaling away for the remainder of the workout, happy to have completed as much as I had. I got hit by the pain train.
Jenna -- I took your advice and popped into the hot tub after Friday's swim. And, Keith -- I took along some extra food for those extra calories I burned. Thanks guys! Sometimes it's the simplest advice that makes such a big difference! :) :)
OH--I almost forgot:
HAPPY 40th JASON!!!!!!! Wish I was there to see Cath all gussied up in high heels AND a dress!! :) :) :) :) :)
