As always, Mr. TBS started his work-out first. I can usually track how much time I have to stretch and get ready based on when I hear him start on the treadmill. I walked in the room when I heard it turn off, and my sweaty, hunky husband said, "It just stopped working." What. The screen worked, the incline mechanism worked, but the actual treadmill belt did not. After consulting the manual's trouble shooting instructions, the problem remained. Grrrr. I still worked out, but it was more strength training than anything. (After 45 minutes of that shiz, I am sore today! Whew!)
Nothing feels better than washing away sweat, but what's that you say? The mister had more news for me: "Did Dave show you where the water heater is, because we don't have any hot water." I am perpetually cold, and even after working out, I do still like a warm shower. I spent ten minutes sucking my stomach in, the way you do when you slowly walk into a cold pool, but at least I was clean!
Eventually, our landlord restarted our water heater. Grocery shopping and laundry got pushed to the evening, because there was an impromptu pool party in our backyard. I had fun swimming and breaking bread with our neighbors, and for a few hours, it was nice to just relax and forget about everything prior to 4:00pm. I really wanted to take a few pictures, but I decided against it, because it was our first time hanging out with the four of them, and I didn't want to scare them with my blogging ways. ;-) By the time we showered and settled in for the night, it was 8:30pm.
Oddly enough, do you know what bothered me the most at the end of the day? Someone I'm really close with treated me pretty badly the last time we saw each other, and we haven't talked since. I was in tears about it weeks ago. You think you're over something until something completely unrelated goes wrong, and then BAM. You're upset about it again. Does that ever happen to you? Now I'm looking back on last night and sympathetically laughing about it. I'm just yearning to go home, work out, eat, and sleep.
Also, I never got that last load of laundry out of the dryer. Oops!
I love that so many of you comment about how happy and positive I am, but you know what? I have bad days too. Surprise! Quick! Leave me a comment with the link to your funniest blog posts!
